Wow!!! Today marks blog post 200!!! I cannot believe I am already at 200. Never thought I would get to this point. Other blogs I’ve had over the years through Blogspot, Tumblr, or some other site, I usually never got past writing 20 entires. My last blog on Tumblr just ended up being reposts after awhile and most of the time I noticed Tumblr brought out a bunch of trolls way before they blew up on the internet. I am so happy I made it here, and love that I will continue to write about what I love. Bringing you guys news about Anime and everything Japanese. Now onto this blogs amazingness!!
A few days ago, the official Sailor Moon Japanese website made many announcements to tie in to the 25th anniversary. Can you believe we are already at 25 years? It seems like yesterday we were salivating on the announcements made during the 20th anniversary five years ago! First, it has been confirmed that Season four of Sailor Moon Crystal is the works. No word yet on a release date, but hopefully it will be soon. Here are some other big announcements made.
Monster Hunter XX Collaboration:
For the new Monster Hunter XX (Double Cross) game for Nintendo 3DS, the cat character Airou will be able to transform into Luna, and will have the Heart Moon rod from Sailor Moon R.
Capcom will also have a special Sailor Moon Guild card to download into the game. Here is the collaboration video.
My Melody Collaboration:
Sanrio announced that Sailor Moon will team up with Sanrio character My Melody for an upcoming toy collaboration. No word on what the toys will be, but My Melody will sport her own Sailor Scout Uniform and Sailor Moon has been designed to match the Sanrio style.
Sailor Moon Musical:
This year during the Houston Anime Matsuri festival that is held from April 7th through April 9th, they are getting a first and awesome surprise. April 7th has been designated as “Sailor Moon day” and on this day, Anime Matsuri will host the first ever US appearance of “SeraMyu” cast from Japan. The SeraMyu actors of the current Sailor Moon SuperS musical and a few dancers will give a special performance at the convention!
A series of these musicals started for the 20th anniversary and this is the fourth in series. The musicals have changed casts. The current cast that will be in Houston started with the Sailor Moon S musical, with the exception of actress Yuga Yamato, who has played Tuxedo Kamen throughout all the stage shows. The cast that will be in Houston is as follows:
- Hotaru Nomoto (Sailor Moon)
- Yume Takeuchi (Sailor Mercury)
- Karen Kobayashi (Sailor Mars)
- Kaede (Sailor Jupiter)
- Rimo Hasegawa (Sailor Venus)
- Syu Shiotsuki (Sailor Uranus)
- Sayaka Fujioka (Sailor Neptune)
- Mikako Ishii (Sailor Pluto)
