Last Monday, on February 18th 2013, voice actress Chieko Honda died following a battle with cancer. She was only 49. Chieko Honda was a veteran voice actor best known to Sailor Moon fans for providing the voice of Tellu of the Witches 5 in Sailor Moon S. Though she only appeared in a couple of episodes of the show, her contribution will not soon be forgotten by fans.

This year at G-Anime Terri Hawkes, the English voice of Sailor Moon had two panels. Here is the first panel where Terri Hawkes discusses her time voicing Sailor Moon.
The next day Terri Hawkes ran another panel on acting, writing and directing as a professional. This panel didn’t have as much to do with Sailor Moon but may still be of interested to fans. It will be posted to the site in the near future.
New figures of Sailor Moon and the rest of the nine Sailor Soldiers will be available in May from Legend Studio.
Sailor Moon Collectibles reports that a few pictures from the ACG Comic Expo in Guangzhou, China from December have surfaced. These pictures show that there will be the nine figures of Sailor Moon, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Venus, Pluto, Uranus, Neptune and Saturn. Unfortunately we just get cutouts with no real indication of what the toys would look like for most of the girls but we get a bit more of a look at Sailor Moon herself. There are some CG renders of the Sailor Moon figure and it’s individual parts which gives us a good idea of what the finished product might look like. We see for example that the figure will have a number of swappable faces and by seeing all the pieces we can get a good idea of the articulation the final product might have.
Fumio Osana, @osabu8 on twitter, has responded to a fan’s question about how US viewers will be able to watch the new Sailor Moon 2013 anime, asking if it would be available online. His reply was:
@DanielleSwaw yes,you will watch on internet.
Short and sweet. Based on this statement it would seem that international distribution of the show, at least at first, is planned to be done online. How exactly this will be done isn’t specified but it seems reasonable that we will see it on some kind of streaming site. Some sites like Crunchy Roll and Funimation already do this.
What a bizarre reference! Here’s a parody of the classic scene from E.T. The Extraterrestrial where E.T. and Elliott are flying in front of the Moon but with Sailor Moon and Luna in their place! The shirt is for sale for one day only at Qwertee. Since Qwertee is a European site the shirt will be on sale until 6pm EST tomorrow, February 11th. That’s 22 hours from this being posted!
The shirt’s artist is Meri. You can check out her portfolio to see more of her work.
For the next day and a half this cool Sailor Moon/Batman inspired shirt will be available at OtherTees for $11. This shirt was previously sold at Qwertee in November. Check out Mundos de Papel for more by this artist.
