For the next few days there are a few great looking Sailor Moon shirts for sale at Arteesel and Limiteed. First we’ve got Kawaii Sailor Jupiter and Kawaii Sailor Venus for sale until the end of the day on Thursday April 24th from Arteesel for $12 a piece. There’s also District Jupiter, a Hunger Games/Sailor Moon shirt featuring Sailor Jupiter, for sale for $12 at Limiteed until 9pm EST Wednesday April 23rd.
This Sunday, April 27th 2014, there will be a live streaming event on Niconico which will include announcements of the voice cast and some character art for the new Sailor Moon anime, Sailor Moon Crystal, as well as the cast for this summer’s new Sailor Moon Musical. The special will air at 4pm Japan Standard Time or 3am Eastern Standard Time. Hope you don’t like sleep!
The event will also feature Fumio Osana, the original editor for the Sailor Moon manga, Munehisa Sakai, the director for the new series and Yuh Kamiki who is listed as being a producer for the Sailor Moon Crystal anime. Yuh Kamiki had not been previously announced as being affiliated with this show. A quick search finds a Japanese actor by that name with no anime series producing experience who I do not believe is the anime series producer who will be at this event.
After having done movie versions of Transformers and now Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Megan Fox was asked what other cartoon she would like to be involved with a live action movie of. After mentioning an interest in Gundam Wing, Jurassic Park and Thudercats she added the following:
Sailor Moon. That could feasibly be made into a live action movie. I don’t know how many Americans were into that. I was into that, but I don’t know how huge it was here. That’s not actually a bad idea.
Keep in mind of course there are no plans to actually make such a movie. This is just something Megan Fox mentioned being interested in along with many other franchises she was a fan of when she was younger.
What do you think? Is a Sailor Moon live action film starring Megan Fox “Not actually a bad idea” or just a way to ruin more childhoods? Who should she play? She doesn’t seem to look much like Sailor Moon but she might be able to pull off Sailor Mars.
The rest of the S. H. Figuarts figures are also available on Amazon.com. Sailor Moon, Mercury and Mars are already out. Sailor Venus will be released at Amazon.com on May 21st. You can also get Sailor Venus a bit earlier from Japan on April 30th from JList, CD Japan and YesAsia.
Here are a couple of great looking shirts for sale until the end of the weekend from Arteesel. Kawaii Mars and Kawaii Mercury features Sailor Mars and Sailor Mercury drawn in a style reminiscent of old cartoons like Mickey Mouse and Felix the Cat.
A new Sailor Moon musical has been announced on the Sailor Moon official site. Not many details have been given but we do know that this musical will follow the Black Moon story arc of the Sailor Moon manga or the Sailor Moon R season of the anime which takes place in 30th century Crystal Tokyo following the battle with the Black Moon Clan. Though Chibiusa is not mentioned by name it stands to reason that this musical will feature her introduction as well as her transformation into Black Lady. No details about the cast have been revealed but the announcement mentions that this will be announced on the site in the near future.
This will be the second modern Sailor Moon musical following Sailor Moon La Reconquista which played last September.
Note: This article previously mentioned the musical would take place in September. As of now the only information we have about the date is that it will be this summer.
Another great cosplay accessory is coming this July. Sailor Moon’s Disguise Pen, known as the Luna Pen in the English dub, has been announced on the official Sailor Moon site. The toy is called the “Moonlight Memory Series Light Disguise Pen”. It’s a high quality replica which lights up and actually writes! Unlike Usagi’s pen it does not appear that this gives collectors the ability to transform into a costume of their choice.
Last week, March 25th, volumes 9 and 10 of the Sailor Moon Manga Complete Editions were released in Japan. Volume 9 features Endymion and Serenity on the cover while volume 10 features all 10 Sailor Guardians. This concludes the story of the Sailor Moon manga with the Stars story arc featuring Galaxia and the Starlights. Volumes 11 and 12 of the manga will be released later this month and will likely contain Code Name Sailor V and the Parallel Sailor Moon story, as that’s all that has not been published to date. Parallel Sailor Moon was originally published only in the Materials Collection Artbook but also added with the 2004 edition of the manga which is what we recently saw translated into English by Kodansha Comics USA. As with other volumes this complete edition features all colour pages previously only seen in the pages of Nakayoshi where they were originally published.
With most of these two books dedicated to wrapping up the main story we only have one side story included, that being the final Chibiusa’s Picture Diary story, the Secret of the Hammer Price Shrine. This story has Chibiusa and Hotaru getting into high jynx with their trendy friends Naruru, Naru’s sister, and Ruruna who dress up as Sailor Guardians who fans refer to as Sailor Channel and Sailor Guccicci.
