The latest episode of Sailor Moon Crystal will be released in English this Friday at 9pm Eastern Time, 6pm Pacific Time, on Hulu and Neon Alley. This week we get Act 5, Makoto – Sailor Jupiter, which introduces us to yet another Sailor Guardian. Makoto Kino is a new student at school and her and Usagi become instant friends. The episode focuses on a Bridal Boutique which is at the center of the Dark Kingdom’s plot. Fans will see an obvious similarity to Sailor Jupiter’s first appearance in the original anime in episode 25, Jupiter – the Powerful Girl in Love, but also to episode 16, A Girl’s Dream: Usagi Becomes a Bride, which centers around a wedding dress contest. This is a bit backwards of course. This episode of Sailor Moon Crystal is based on the equivalent chapter of the manga, as all episodes are. The original anime is more loosely based on the manga which accounts for these similarities.
The English voice of Makoto Kino is provided by Amanda C. Miller who also voiced her in the new English dub of the original Sailor Moon anime. You can follow her on Twitter at @amanda_celine. Let us know what you think of her voice!
Edit: The title originally said Act 4, though the content reference Act 5, which is the actual episode we are getting this week. This was a copy/paste error. It has been corrected.
It’s act 5 not 4
yea i was about to say its act 5 this friday not 4 no worries just an error. by the way do i need to watch the 90s sailor moon to watch crystal sorry for the noob question im pretty new to sailor moon
Oops. My mistake! Thanks guys.
No, you can watch either one first… though in my opinion the original is better paced and makes you feel more attached to the characters, Crystal is much quicker and based much more closely on the manga.
I think that it doesn’t matter which version of sailor moon do you watch first because if you like sailor moon than you would like sailor moon crystal for sure or if you like sailor moon crystal you would like sailor moon for sure so it doesn’t matter which one of sailor moon versions do you watch first ,it would be good that when you finish with sailor moon crystal start to watch sailor moon of 90’s because its the anime that i fell in love and i think that you would like it to (just a suggestion)
original anime is way more about ordinary and school life of girls, is way way more funny and of course there is a new monster in every episode, on the other hand a lot of episodes, maybe most of the episodes, does not bring anything important to the main plot, Crystal is much more concentrated on the plot and every episode is important
That frame with Makoto and the petal highlight how beautiful this anime can be when they put effort into it!
ok thanks guys i started watching the 90s sailor moon yesterday loving it so are jusat watch that for now since i hate subs and sailor moon crstal wont be fully dubbed till like mid next year i can wait also looking forward to sailor stars
