If you don’t speak Japanese and didn’t get up at 4am on Sunday to watch the Sailor Moon event that was streamed on the Niconico web site you can now check it out. Miss Dream has fan subbed the event and made it available for all to download! There is a direct download and torrent on the site.
This event lasted roughly 90 minutes and mostly centered around information about the new musical Sailor Moon La Reconquista. There was also a quick look at some of the upcoming merchandise, a performance of Moonlight Densetsu by Momoiro Clover Z and a very small amount of information about the new anime, which we covered in a post that went online on Sunday.
Thanks to the staff at the Miss Dream web site for getting this translated so quickly!
The Sailor Moon live event is now over. We didn’t learn a ton but it was mentioned that the new Sailor Moon anime would begin airing this winter. It was also mentioned that it would be streaming on Niconico, a Japanese streaming video service. Fumio Osano was in attendance but didn’t have much to tell us. Not much else was learned aside from it being based on the old anime but not being a remake, which is fairly vague.
The event began with a look at various products we’d already talked about on this site. It then included an introduction to certain cast members of the new musical, Sailor Moon La Reconquista. In attendance were Sailor Moon, Sailor Mars, Sailor Venus as well as all four of the Shitennou. Finally a performance of Moonlight Densetsu was done by Momoiro Clover Z who were confirmed to be doing the theme song for the new anime, which is information we already had. Also unchanged was the quality of Momoiro Clover Z’s performance.
The event closed with a fairly anticlimactic Q&A. The reaction of the sleep deprived fan base seems to be mostly disappointment at this early hour. It’s safe to say everyone was hoping for a bit more information about the anime. Be patient Moonies! Winter is coming. Now go home and go to bed.
The colour version of Bandai’s S. H. Figuarts figure was unveiled last weekend at Wonder Festival 2013. We don’t really have more details about this figure at this point but the price should be similar to the Sailor Moon and Mercury figures which we already know more about.

This Sunday, August 4th, there will be a live web video event on the Niconico site. This was announced on the official Sailor Moon site. This event is going to be similar to last year’s event where the anime was first announced. They will be discussing the new Sailor Moon anime, the upcoming musical and other new merchandise. The update on the musical will include a performance by the cast. We’re certainly hoping to get some concrete information about the new anime since very little has been officially announced since last year’s event. The event will occur at 5pm local time in Japan which is 4am Sunday morning here in Norther America’s Easter Standard Time zone.
If you are interested in following the show live I would suggest heading over to the Miss Dream web site. They will have a live stream of the show with live translations over twitter. In addition once complete they plan on subbing it for all to enjoy. It was following Miss Dream’s twitter account that I first learned about the new anime moments after it had been announced last year.
We’ll be sure to update this site with any relevant information as it comes in. Posting on the site might not be my top priority at 4 or 5 in the morning on a Sunday but I will strive to share information as it is relevant and urgent as time permits. Keep an eye on our Twitter and Facebook pages for information that’s breaking and not yet posted to the blog. At the very least I will be retweeting and posting short updates about anything important on those social media sites. As always we encourage our readers to join the conversation on those pages.
