Kotono Mitsuishi, the voice of Sailor Moon

Great news for Sailor Moon fans in North Carolina! They will have a chance to meet the Japanese voices of Sailor Moon, Luna and Nephrite at the upcoming Animazement convention in Raleigh May 24th to the 26th! This includes Kotono Mitsuishi, the original voice of Sailor Moon as well as her voice in Sailor Moon Crystal! She has also done a number of other roles in other popular anime series such as Misato in Evangelion. Returning to Animazement is Keiko Han, the voice of Luna from the original Sailor Moon anime as well as the plush and CG Luna from the fantastic live action Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon series. Finally there is also Katsuji Mori, who voiced Nephrite in the original Sailor Moon anime. When not drinking chocolate parfaits Katsuji Mori is an anime voice acting veteran and the main star of many classic series having played Ken the Eagle in Gatchaman (Battle of the Planets), Tekkaman in the original Tekkaman series and Go Mifune (Speed Racer) in Mach GoGoGo.

A specific schedule doesn’t seem to be available quite yet but it stands to reason that they would be available for autographs and potentially some panels. Be sure to check out the full schedule when the event approaches. Are any of you in the area and planning to attend this convention? Let us know in the comments!

    • How about not harassing anybody?

      Do you really think she’d be allowed to say anything about what’s going on, even if she knows?

      • Harassing is not bad, but asking her would be much appreciated. She can at least say “Keep looking for it”, which means it is happening, or say nothing which is a really bad sign… Asking would help bring us peace.

        • “harassing: the action of subjecting someone to aggressive pressure or intimidation.”
          I think we should take ‘harass the voice actress’ off the table and give it a toss out the window. But that’s just me!

          • I wanted to say harassing is bad, but got spaced s it is a typo. Sorry guys, of course it is not ok at all. I post without reading and there is no way edit a post

  1. She better spill some news on Sailor Moon Crystal. I hope we get news before that, but I highly doubt it. If we have no news by then and she doesn’t reveal anything, it is a pretty bad sign. So let’s offer a prayer to the sacred moonlight.

  2. Short of using a truth serum, I’m sure she wouldn’t be allowed to share anything on Dream arc at a panel in North Carolina. Any information on it would be released from Toei directly. They sure are dragging.

    • Hum, Naoko Takeuchi got a pharmacy degree, she maybe could do something for us… like a… truth serum…

      Wait? What? Have I said “Naoko Takeuchi”? No way she could do that for us, she must be on Toei’s side, whether she really wants it or not.

      Oh, no, wait! I know! Sailor Mercury and Sailor Pluto will help us. They have knowledge in chemistry. So… Mercury… Truth Aqua Serum! Toei, dowse yourself in water and confess! And, if Mercury Truth Aqua Serum is not enough, Pluto will use her Dead Scream to torture Toei and force them to confess.

      • Surprised to hear she graduated in pharmacy considering some of the pseudoscience that makes it into the manga, mostly in the second story arc. Could be she just uses that as inspiration for stories though!

        • Oh yes, she is!

          You will find some useful information about this around the web ;) .

          Finally, I want to take this time to recommend everyone this book I bought (on Amazon) a few months ago, “Warriors of Legend: Reflections of Japan in Sailor Moon”:
 . I, personally, really liked it and it helped me to fully understand the foundations of the Sailor Moon universe! Moreover, the authors insist on the influence that Naoko Takeuchi’s field and place of study had on the creation process of Sailor Moon ;) .

          • Love this book! I bought it back when the live action series was on the air but only read it a couple of years ago. I used to interact with Jay a lot at Genvid and met the photographer at conventions a few times so I received a lot of social pressure to buy the book!

            Must have forgotten the Pharmacy tidbit. The chemistry part ties in to a lot of her stuff which I think is reflected more in the series.

            Nice link. I can see my review in there!

          • Well, I wouldn’t have guessed that you were the Adam who wrote a review on this book at this link! I’m a little slow on the uptake, sorry!
            Sure, Navok and Rudranath’s book could be completed by some further work, but it is very good nonetheless and highly recommended to fill up any Moonie’s personal collection. The book was published in 2005, but I only heard of it for the first time one or two years ago, during a browsing session in English (when I’m not too lazy to do so), searching for any info on Sailor Moon. Interestingly, the book was translated into Spanish in 2009, but it seems to be the only translation made to this day.

            About the mention of Takeuchi’s field and place of study in the book, you can report to pages 49 and 50, and 59 (especially this one) ;) .

          • @Aurelia does the book talk about the fashion inspiration behind Sailor Moon? I love that Naoko dressed her characters in designs literally off the runway. My mom a few months ago was at the Dior exhibit and uploaded pictures to her instagram and I was like, Princess Serenity’s Dress is on display!

          • I don’t recall this being in the book but I’ve seen some great comparison photos online showing some of the actual outfits which inspired the manga.

          • @ Matt: Nope, just like Adam, I don’t recall this being covered in the book neither. I’ve also just checked the book again. Below is the book contents (not including the subchapters):

            Introduction / Sailor Moon: A Primer / Exploring the Sailor Moon Universe / Family / Culture and Lifestyle / Education / Religion / Foreign Influences / Conclusion / Footnotes / Acknowledgments.The book has 147 pages.

  3. You mentioned Keiko Han is the voice of Luna, but totally missed that she also voiced Queen Beryl? I thought it was hilarious when I first discovered that and made jokes about Luna having been the villain all along.

  4. Finally, an event in my state. Too bad I can’t go. My mom has to work and can’t take me. And even though it’s in NC Raleigh is still kinda far away. Come to Eden or at least Greensboro, gee.

  5. I will be attending this event!
    According to the website, you are only allowed one thing to be signed by each of the voice actors and has to be licensed merchandise. I was thinking of ordering the first half of the Japanese blu ray of the original Sailor Moon. I am just debating on whether I should have all three voice actors sign it or only Sailor Moon, what do you guys think?

    • Or if you any of you guys have any better ideas on what should be signed I would love to hear it! Just remember it has to be licensed merchandise! (I found this really beautiful fanart on Etsy of Sailor Moon and Luna but unfortunately the staff won’t allow it.)

    • I often like for a voice actor to sign something with their image on it, but then I have a ton of different DVDs with autographs on them as a result.

  6. Thanks for your response!
    The first half of the Japanese Blu Ray does have both Sailor Moon and Luna on it so sounds great to have those two voice actors to sign with extra points that Keiko also voices Beryl. It would seem out of place to have the voice of Nephrite sign it. I also love that the autographs would be laminated once I let the signatures dry and insert them back on the Blu Ray case. I wish I could also have them sign both volume sets of the first season but with the lines I’m sure they will be taking the one item rule very seriously.

    • I have decieded to get the Japanese set of the movies!
      Will have Kotono sign the R movie disc and Keiko the S movir disc!
