John Stocker interview at Fan Expo 2012

Here’s an interview with legendary voice actor and voice director John Stocker from Fan Expo in Toronto this past weekend.

John is known for many roles, perhaps most famously as Beastly from Care Bears. This interview focuses on his involvement in Sailor Moon, for which he provided many voices as well as voice directing for two seasons and three movies. John also talks about some of his more iconic roles, working in the industry throughout the years and gives some insight into being on either side of the microphone.

For more about John Stocker check out his web site johnstocker.ca.

Keep an eye out on this site. We’ll have our Fan Expo interview with Katie Griffin, the voice of Sailor Mars, up in a few days.

Moon for President! Shirt at Shirt Punch

Shirt Punch has yet another Sailor Moon shirt for sale today. As always this shirt will be on sale for $10 but only for one day. The shirt features a mock presidential campaign logo with a crescent moon at the center and four symbols representing the other planets or the Sailor Soldiers surrounding with the slogan “Vote Moon – Love & Justice You Can Believe In” written across the bottom. More specifically the shirt is a parody of Barack Obama’s logo.

Today’s shirt is by Rachael Thomas who has her own t-shirt store which includes other Sailor Moon shirts including this same design in case you missed your chance to get it or want to chose another colour than the navy blue which the Shirt Punch version comes printed on.

Fan Expo was this past weekend in Toronto. I was in attendance dressed as Kunzite and tried to take a photo of all of the Sailor Moon cosplayers I could find. Did I miss any?

Vince Corazza, Susan Roman and Katie Griffin at Anime Revolution

This past weekend at Anime Revolution in Vancouver there were six Sailor Moon voice actors in attendance. A fan recorded this panel which featured Katie Griffin, the voice of Sailor Mars, Susan Roman, the voice of Sailor Jupiter and Vincent Corazza, the voice of Tuxedo Mask.

The sound isn’t excellent because of interference from another panel next door but regardless the content of the panel is something fans will find quite interesting.

Welcome to Sailor Moon News!

Luna using a computer

We here at Sailor Moon News have been working hard to weeks in getting the site ready for launch and we’re happy to finally share it with the world. For years I’ve wanted to do a Sailor Moon news site but with so little going on it was to hard to justify. After last month’s announcement of a new Sailor Moon series I immediately knew it was finally time to do this! We want SailorMoonNews.com to be your source of all kinds of Sailor Moon News from the new 2013 anime series to anything related to the old manga, anime, live action series and merchandise related to all of these.

Please bookmark us, follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Google+ and we’ll do our best to be the greatest Sailor Moon News site we can!

In anticipation for the site’s launch we’ve migrated some relevant posts from our parent site Powet.tv and we’ve also written some new stuff as we get things ready. We’re hoping this gives you a good idea of the kind of site we hope this will become as news of the new TV series becomes more frequent and we do our best to share it all with you. There’s been pretty much no news about the show since the original announcement but we’re as anxious as you for this to change.

Just who are we? The site will be maintained up and updated by Captain Genius and myself, Adam Gardner. We’re both fans of Sailor Moon from back in the day looking forward to see the franchise have some new life breathed into it.

Feel free to drop us a line via our contact page to let us know of any news or content you feel we should be covering on the site.

Also if you’re bored check out my embarassing first crack at a Sailor Moon fan site from 1997 at The Sailor Moon Page of Funk! and my only better by comparison Sailor V page The Sailor V Page of Funk!
