The first two episodes of the English dub of Sailor Moon Crystal will be premiered at the Anime Expo convention in Los Angeles on Friday July 3rd at 6pm, as part of Sailor Moon Day. The anime convention’s schedule is now online, where the event was listed. This will be Act 1, Usagi – Sailor Moon, and Act 2, Ami – Sailor Mercury. The English dub, by Viz Media, will keep the same cast that their new English dub of the original anime used. Some of those actors will be present at the convention. Since this convention takes place in California all times will be in Pacific Time.

Anime Expo will take place the weekend of July 2nd to the 5th in Los Angeles California. The convention will feature many guests from the English dub of the original Sailor Moon Anime and Sailor Moon Crystal. In attendance will be Stephanie Sheh, the voice of Sailor Moon, Cristina Vee, the voice of Sailor Mars, Amanda Miller, the voice of Sailor Jupiter, Cherami Leigh, the voice of Sailor Venus, Robbie Daymond, the voice of Tuxedo Mask and Sandy Fox, the voice of Chibiusa and Black Lady. Kyle Hebert, who played the Priest who turned into the monster Boxy in the new dub, will also be at the convention though he may not be involved in the dub of Sailor Moon Crystal or the Sailor Moon themed events.

KISS and Momoiro Clover Z

Also at the convention will be Momoiro Clover Z, the band which performs the Sailor Moon Crystal opening theme, Moon Pride, and ending theme, Gekkou or Moonbow. Momoiro Clover Z will be performing on Thursday July 2nd with KISS members Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons. The two bands recently collaborated on a single released as Momoiro Clover Z vs. KISS.

  1. Well that was something.
    Not a fan of Kiss but I guess it somewhat worked out okay. I preferred the new song by K-Pop group Crayon Pop. It had a Sailor Moon vibe too, and even starts out with the lyrics “Moon Prism Power”.

  2. i wonder if they will use the blu ray edition for the dub or use the dub on both the streaming and blu ray version. would be very sad if they only dub the streaming version (probably the case though)

    • I can almost definitely say it will be the blurays that will get dubbed since those are the versions being aired on tv in Japan.
      The streaming episodes were just temporary.

      • thats cool because its kinda like hitting two birds with one stone, i get to check out the blu ray and the dub at the same time, dying to see how they fixed episode 3, hope theyll stream a few and if its a decent dub ill buy it for the kids, im happy with the japanese version so ill purchase that for myself if i feel the blu rays are worth it

      • I’m very annoyed that the Moon stick was not switched out for the Moon Rod in the Petz epsiode for the Blu-Rays…how do you miss a mistake like that even the first time? Much less twice?
        Oh well.
