New information about the Sailor Moon “La Reconquista” Musical

Sailor Moon musical "La Reconquista" banner

We’ve got new information and a better look at the cast of the new Sailor Moon musical set to play in Japan this September. A lot of this can be found on the musical’s official site. The musical now has a title “La Reconquista”. We also have a look at the Sailor Soldiers and Tuxedo Mask in their costumes.

Sailor Moon musical "La Reconquista" - Yuuga Yamato as Tuxedo Mask

Noteable is that Tuxedo Mask and all other male characters are being played by female actresses. The musical’s story will be focusing on the Dark Kingdom story arc meaning Queen Beryl, the four Shitennou and Queen Serenity are all characters. The Shitennou, male characters, are also being played by women. A curious character included in the cast list is “Lemures Leader”. The monsters from the Dead Moon Circus are called Lemures while the monsters from the Dark Kingdom are referred to as Youma. Lemures is a name for spirits of the dead while Youma simply means monster. We can speculate about what this means but it’s likely they’ll just be referring to a group of monsters as Lemures.

Miss Dream offers us the following cast list name translation:

Sailor Moon: Satomi Ookubo
Sailor Mercury: Miyabi Matsuura
Sailor Mars: Kanon Nakaki
Sailor Jupiter: Yuu Takahashi
Sailor Venus: Shiori Sakata
Tuxedo Mask: Yuuga Yamato
Queen Beryl: Hatsukaze Midori
Kunzite: Ryo Saika
Zoicite: Misaki Komatsu
Nephrite: KORO
Jadeite: RUUTO
Lemures Leader: Shintani Mayumi
Queen Serenity: Jamie Natsuki

Shows run from September 13th to the 23rd. Tickets go on sale August 17th. More information is available on the official site. If you’re interested in attending you might want to make plans to be in Japan in September.

Bandai’s S. H. Figuarts Sailor Mars figure prototype

Sailor Mars S. H. Figuarts figure from Bandai

We finally have a first look at the Sailor Mars prototype figure from Bandai’s S. H. Figuarts line! This figure is being unveiled at the Japan Expo in Paris which technically starts later today, July 4th. Like the other figures in this line it will be a very detailed very posable figure with many swappable parts. This is a prototype so the design could change but the Sailor Mercury full colour figure ended up being pretty much as shown. We’ll have to wait and see what kind of accessories Sailor Mars may come with. Any guesses? I would think we could see her Ofuda, the piece of paper on which her charm is inscribed, and maybe Phobos and Deimos, her pet crows.

The new Sailor Moon anime is set to begin airing in December or January??

Usagi watching TV

News about many things came in today but I first wanted to share the latest about the new Sailor Moon anime that we’re all very excited for. A flyer for the new Sailor Moon keychains also listed some other upcoming Sailor Moon related dates. Miss Dream has been great in translating the relevant information and reveals that the show is currently in production and set to start airing some time around December 2013 or January of 2014. This lines up with earlier information we heard about the show being delayed until winter. More specifically the small calendar at the bottom of this flyer has an entry in December and January stating that the new anime will start then, but it is punctuated with not one but two question marks! What could it mean? Well it probably means this date is not set in stone.

Sailor Moon keychain flyer - Anime delayed until November, December or January

Needless to say the original date of “Summer 2013″ is no longer something fans should be expecting. This is great, but not terribly definitive news! A delay may not seem ideal but now we some fairly reliable information that the show is underway and a rough idea of when to expect it.
