You Know You Read Too Much Sailor Moon When... or simply known more by its acronym as YKYRTMSMW was a very popular section to have on many Sailormoon shrines in the late 1990's and early 2000's. The original statement was known as You Know You Watch Too Much Sailor Moon When...but as Neo Nobility is concentrated on the manga the Watch was changed to Read. After restating the phrase, you would put whatever funny message afterwards to complete the sentence.
