Tomorrow morning at 7pm Japan Standard Time, 6am Eastern Time and 3am Pacific, the next episode of Sailor Moon Crystal will be available to stream online on Crunchyroll, Hulu and Niconico. This week is episode 9, Serenity – Princess. A lot will happen this week as the Moon Princess, Princess Serenity, is revealed, we finally see the Silver Crystal and we get a flashback to the events of Silver Millennium on the Moon.
The manga equivalent of this story also included a look back at the Shitennou in their original lives as well as them after their deaths. As they haven’t died yet in this continuity we’re sure to see something a little different this time around.
I think it’ll be this episode in which we see whether Crystal will follow the same story as the manga and in episode 13 or so we’ll meet Chibiusa or the Black Moon Clan, or if it’ll take things in a totally different direction. I’d prefer it to go in the latter direction, but we’ll just have to wait and see what happens, won’t we?
Either way it goes I’m excited! If it goes with Black Moon arc then we can be pretty sure we’ll get Infinity, Dream and Stars too, but if it changes the storyline like PGSM it might not continue.., my wish is for it to continue somehow through Dark Kingdom’s arc for an entire season and then do the same with all the rest of the manga arcs, adding in new content and story.
I also wish this would get picked up by a major station in Japan and go weekly!
Don’t we all wish it would go weekly!
Agreed. It’s just killing me that I have to keep an eye on my calendar and count the day!
As great as it would be to have it weekly, given all the wonky animation I think the company needs that bi-monthly schedule desperately. I’d love it weekly, but I think it’d wind up being way ugly
I hope they dont crunch everything in one episode. They should have at least 2 more. I can’t wait.
