Keiko Kitagawa, best known to Sailor Moon fans as Sailor Mars from the live action Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon series, will be in yet another live action adaptation of a popular manga and anime series. She will be in the upcoming The Promised Neverland movie as the character Isabella, also known as Mama. The series is about a group of children in a mysterious orphanage where Isabella is their caregiver. This takes place in the distant future where the orphanage, the only world they know, is part of some nefarious plot. I guess that means they’re not actually going to Neverland. Would it be rude to suggest this is similar to the plot of The Island? I haven’t read or seen the series but it seems like Keiko Kitagawa’s character is potentially a villain in this.
The casting for the film has already caused some controversy as the character or Krone will be portrayed by a Japanese actress, Naomi Watanabe, though the character in the manga and anime is black. This is an interesting controversy given the recurring backlash when white actors are cast in Hollywood adaptations of Japanese franchises such as Scarlett Johansson in Ghost in the Shell.
The movie will be released in Japan on December 18th. There are no details about a North American release at this time. Fans looking to check out the anime can watch the first season on Crunchyroll, FunimationNow, Hulu or Hidive. Are any of you fans of the manga and anime series? Will you be checking out this movie when it’s released?

I’m very familiar with the manga, and if they do a good job with this adaptation, it is going to be TERRIFYING!!!!
i watched The Promised Neverland on toonami last year
it was the anime series 3 months after the original japanese release toonami has aired that anime (The Promised Neverland) it reran on January 2020 until feburary 22, 2020
Remember yesterday, we celebrated the 28th Anniversary of the first season of Sailor Moon in 1992.
I f I didn’t know better I would swear that the author of this site was a Sailor Mars fan. *wink-wink*
But is there life on Mars?
But is there life *within* Mars?
Crappy and risky joke, I know: I’m already out and far away!
Actually, I did say to a friend a few hours ago, “If only the virus simply transformed people into anime characters.”
Ah, you mean the “cosplayovirus”?
Speaking of Cronavirus there are Causes of that like Movies are Delayed (such as Miracle Leap), Closeure of the Sailor Moon Cafe in Tokyo, Etc.
Interesting to know! Thank you for this information.
Hope this virus will be soon eradicated…
Hopefully it doesn’t affect the new Sailor Moon films. But if it protects lives, I’ll accept another delay.
I mean, oh well, I’ve waited this long! https://66.media.tumblr.com/7084dadd2510ddd5028b05a51166c8a3/tumblr_mnzy51hZU11qjj1swo2_250.gif
Oh, dear! Using an emoji made my post blank. Heh.
I blame WordPress and take no responsibility for this!
A blank post after using an emoji, like, say, a smiley? Hmm, that’s so *you*, Josephshire Cat!
I won’t blame you, Adam. I promise. My litigious days are over!
In the name of Mercury, I’ll punish you for risky jokes! Now wash your hands and repent!
I doused my whole body in hydroalcoholic gel . I guess I repented enough!
I’ll check. But better wash my hands first!
Because if you don’t wash your hands first, the supposed life on Mars might die even before you search for it XD .
I wouldn’t want to be the one to introduce coronavirus on another planet, that’s for sure.
Hope you are all well, fellow friends!
Stay strong, all of you.
Your infectious well-wishing has given me a fever.
The good and compassionate kind of fever. 8)
Aren’t we gonna get more news in March?
Given that the world has to face a pandemic, a new and unknown murderous virus, I think it’s not the moment right now…
Stay safe, Aurelia…and everyone else too.
Where did that cat go? He was here just a moment ago…
I got good news from my employer. But I admit, I’m hesitant to trust them after recent things.
Thank you, Saintfighteraqua !
Stay safe too. Hope you are well .
As for the cat he… just disappeared, just like any other cat. I had told him to stay confined here with us. But he disobeyed. I hope he will be fined!
Well, what else is one gonna do under quarantine?
More info about Prism on Ice
I can’t help you there, but I can help you with a smile!
Adam will make a post
Ohh! I’m sorry, I misunderstood you. I thought you were asking me if I had any info.
Ah, there’s only one Joseph to do such a video, and it can only be you ! What an imposing voice you have! Do you have a classical training? I’m sure you could use your skills to dub! But be careful, our times are uncertain, the world economy might collapse, and in return, you might be paid in rolls of toilet paper. The surest currency in times of *need* and chaos!
The dollar? Ha!
The Yen? Has been!
The Euro? Pshhhh!
All we need is that sweet TP!
Tea Parties, yes! TP.
Yay, hustling toilet paper! What a time to be alive! Thank you for the kind words, Aurélia, but I’m not classically trained. I was in school plays, took drama in high school, did improvisational comedy (again, with fellow high school students), and I was in community theatre. But that’s it, really. My acting ability is about as strong as a soggy pancake, but I had fun!
Thank you Joe for your answer! You may not be classically trained, but you have the voice of someone who trained his voice through years of acting, for sure, and I heard it!
Thank you, kindly! Let me know if you ever want me to read you a bedtime story or something.
