Following Tuesday’s teaser clip of Zirconia we now know that the voice for that character will be none other than Japanese comedian and actor Naomi Watanabe. A Twitter contest was run asking fans to give their guess as to who the voice actually was and, as we reported earlier this week, many of them were right in guessing that this was actually Naomi Watanabe! She is a big fan of Sailor Moon as you can see by the Super Sailor Moon costume which she is wearing in the photo above.
I had previously mentioned Naomi Watanabe in passing when announcing that she would be in The Promised Neverland live action adaptation along with live action Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon star Keiko Kitagawa who played Sailor Mars in the series. Earlier this week, on September 7th, Keiko Kitagawa gave birth to a baby girl!
Sailor Moon Eternal Part 1 will be released in theatres in Japan on January 8th 2021 with Part 2 coming shortly afterwards on February 11th. We still don’t have any details about a release outside of Japan but we will be sure to share any such information as we get it. What do you think of this casting? Could you tell that it was Naomi Watanabe based on the clip? Which of her previous works have you enjoyed?
is this a follow-up post of the Tuesday’s post
Slowly but surely, we’re getting more information. Hopefully some of that info involves a North American release date.
and Queen Nahelenia’s Seiyuu
Nobody knows yet. This is just a blog reporting info revealed by Toei. Nobody on here has insight information. Best to do is checking the official site.
You realize that today is the 25th Anniversary of the DIC dub of Sailor Moon (1995).
Time to spend time with my cousin!
who’s your cousin
Neither Michiru nor Haruka, unfortunately. Nice avatar, by the way!
I think it’s the anniversary of the 1st episode airing in the US but not the dub itself. I’m not sure if that’s because it played in Canada before or because of episode 41 playing once on Fox.
try 47 in uncut
Right. I think I actually saw that broadcast but it was so long ago it’s hard to remember exactly. I started watching regularly in the episode with the Moon Princess reveal.
i started watching at episode 1 in 2015 in new English dub Dubbed by Viz Media
August 28 1995 is the first airing of the dub on YTV in Canada. Was at noon PST I believe. YTV pushed the series pretty hard with commericals during that summer. I wanted to watch it super bad after seeing those commercials. That show obliterated my love for rainbow bright and a new love was born.
Off-topic, but Mars is clearly visible right now, where I live.
