Video clips and screenshots of the intro and first episode of Sailor Moon Crystal

Sailor Moon Crystal episode 01 - Usagi and Mamoru

This coming Saturday, July 5th 2014, the first episode of Sailor Moon Crystal will finally be released! Earlier today, June 30th 2014, in Japan there was a premiere event where the first episode of the new Sailor Moon anime was played in celebration of Usagi’s birthday. A number of screenshots of the intro and first episode have been released. Some sketchy bootlegged video of some of the episode has been leaked as well. Check out the video below for the complete intro, with the theme song Moon Pride by Momoiro Clover Z, followed by Sailor Moon’s first transformation.

[The video has been set to private since this post was originally made. Check out many screenshots of the video at the bottom of this post to see images from the intro and scene from the episode]

The scene where Luna gives Usagi her broach seems to follow the same scene from the first episode of the original Sailor Moon anime very closely. It remains to be seen if the rest of the premiere episode is as similar.

  1. I love it!!! I didn’t like the 3d in the transformation, but well, at least we’re getting our beloved remake… I’ll get used to the transformation… The opening was flawless!! BTW, a lot of people is hating, but if they don’t like it, no one’s forcing them to watch it… I’m supporting this, I really want to watch the Stars saga remake, but first we have to support this season!!

  2. Wow, everything looks spectacular, and we finally get some good shots of Mamoru! I wish the video wasn’t private though. Oh well. Five and a half days to go!

  3. Potential spoiler alert!! Also, TLDR; Don’t have nostalgia. This series is closer to the manga, not the original anime.
    For those of you who haven’t read the manga, the first episode of the original anime was very much similar to the first chapter, so there will be huge visual similarities between the first episode of the new one and the original. Same be said for Ami’s introduction and Rei’s. After that, the similarities should diminish – the manga and the original anime start diverging hugely. This anime is a closer adaptation of the manga, not the original. Please don’t go to watch it and then ‘but it’s so different from the original’ because everybody’s said that in the lead up to it and you’re just going to sound like idiots.
    Sorry for ranting, I just felt like it needed to be said.

  4. whelp this is about what i was expecting, hardly any “animation” (“how many ways can we come up with to have people moving and talking off screen while we show a basically still shot of someone else blinking!?”) and why does queen serenity have yellow hair? (or is that princess serenity in the wrong dress? either way, neither one is supposed to have yellow hair…….)

  5. for those in Japan who saw the episode: What is the ed called? This site said it’s called Gekkou (Moonlight) before but Sailor Moon WIki says it’s called Tsuki Niji (Moon Rainbow)…

  6. I’m really glad the videos were set to private. I don’t think I could have abstained from spoiling myself.

    • Not much of a spoiler, IMO. As stated in the article, all it showed was the opening, Luna babbling to Usagi about her mission, and Usagi transforming. The non-opening animation almost matched the original to a T (which, itself, was a pretty good approximation of the same scene in the manga).
