The English version of Sailor Moon Crystal Act 10, Moon, is now available on Hulu

Sailor Moon Crystal Act 10 - Princess Serenity taking her own life with Prince Endymion's sword

The latest English dubbed episode of Sailor Moon Crystal is now available on Hulu and Neon Alley. This week we get Act 10, Moon, as the gang literally travels to the Moon. There they visit the uploaded consciousness of Usagi’s mother from another life, Queen Serenity. This leads to more flashbacks including the revelation of a tragic murder suicide.

The big change from the manga in this episode is the suggestion of Shitennou Sailor Guardian pairings. This was hinted at only with an image in the original manga. There was a suggestion that Rei and Jadeite had a previous relationship in Act 3 when Jadeite found her beautiful and familiar. Also paired up are Makoto and Nephrite as well as Ami and Zoisyte. The relationship between Minako and Kunzite was mentioned elsewhere, including the Sailor V comic.

Next week is Act 11, Reunion – Endymion. Some new guy in town looks a lot like Mamoru only he’s evil and a bit gay.

Sailor Moon Crystal Act 10 - Queen Serenity

This Friday the next English dubbed episode of Sailor Moon Crystal will be available on Hulu and Neon Alley starting at 9pm Eastern Time, 6pm Pacific Time. With Act 10, Moon, the gang will be travelling to the … well the Moon. They don’t do so on a rocket ship but instead with magic. There we will see Usagi’s mother Queen Serenity, who has had her consciousness uploaded into a super computer. This will lead to wonderful and terrible flashbacks as we learn of the tragic fate of Princess Serenity and Endymion.

One great thing about this episode is the suggestion that the Sailor Guardians were romantically linked to the Shitennou. This was only hinted at in the manga with an image showing them together but it was never clearly demonstrated in the story.

Art from a Japanese magazine seems to show Sailor Moon Crystal’s versions of Sailor Uranus, Neptune and Saturn

A black and white photo has been circulating online showing art which some claim to be official art of the upcoming new episodes of Sailor Moon Crystal. This image shows the full group of Sailor Guardians including the never before seen Sailor Uranus, Neptune and Saturn. Sailor Moon is also in her Super Sailor Moon form. The image a photo from what appears to be an authentic Japanese magazine. Since it was not posted by an official source I can not guarantee the authenticity of this image though the style appear to be consistent with the art style of Sailor Moon Crystal. That said many fans have been able to produce art in this style. There is always the possibility that an image like this is a clever hoax.

These two photos can be tracked back to Twitter user @karaage_hata who first posted the magazine photo and later the close up version.

Sailor Moon Crystal Act 9 - Princess Serenity and Prince Endymion

The latest English dubbed episode of Sailor Moon Crystal is now available on Hulu and Neon Alley. Act 9, Serenity – Princess, gives us a very important flashback to the Silver Millennium. We also finally learn the true identity of Princess Serenity because in 2016 did anyone really still wonder who she really was? I suppose if some viewers of the live action series could really have been wrong about this anything can happen!

Next week in Act 10, Moon, the gang will actually be traveling to the Moon.

New episodes of Sailor Moon Crystal are coming this Spring. A new director and character designer have been announced.

Sailor Moon Crystal Infinity arc coming Spring 2016

The Sailor Moon Official Site has posted some information about the upcoming new episodes of Sailor Moon Crystal. The Infinity story arc will start this Spring. The production staff has been revealed with more details coming during a live event which will be shown on Niconico Wednesday January 27th at 8pm Japan Standard Time, 6am Easter Time, 3am Pacific Time.

Chiaki Kon - Director of Sailor Moon Crystal phase 3

Sailor Moon Crystal’s new director is Chiaki Kon. She has directed a number of Anime shows I’ve never heard of including Higurashi no Naku Koro ni, Junjo Romantica and Hanasakeru Seishonen. It’s nice to see a woman directing a show that is largely about and for women and girls. Akira Takahashi, who was an animation director for individual episodes of Sailor Moon Crystal, will be taking on the role of character designer.

Other staff remain the same. Series writer Yuji Kobayashi returns. Takashi Kurahashi remains the animation director. Yasuharu Takanashi will continue to do the music.

The third arc of Sailor Moon Crystal, called the second season by some and the third season by others, will cover the Infinity story arc of the manga, which is the Sailor Moon S season of the original anime. This will introduce us to Sailor Uranus, Neptune and Saturn as well as the Death Busters. The rest of the gang, including Sailor Pluto, will return. Unlike in the original anime Chibiusa will be present throughout this arc. She didn’t stay in the future for any period of time following the fight against the Black Moon Clan. We previously learned that the new episodes will air on TV in Japan first, though it is unclear how quickly it will be available to stream for international viewers. One way or another, the show will likely be made available either officially or through fansubs within a few days of the original broadcast. You can always count on this site sharing specifics about how to enjoy the show.

You can check out the stream on the Niconico site starting January 27th at 6am Eastern Time. I’ve watched many of the older streams online but I have been region blocked from viewing more recent ones for not being in Japan. I will do my best to watch the feed or at the very least follow news of the event and share all of the details.

As always take all news for what it is. The original release of Sailor Moon Crystal was delayed a number of time before having a firm release date. A very official source is claiming that the show will be available in the Spring but there is always the possibility of further delays. For reference, Spring this year will run from March 20th to June 20th.

The latest English dubbed episode of Sailor Moon Crystal will be released this Friday, January 8th, on Hulu and Neon Alley. As always the episode will be available to stream at 9pm Eastern Time, 6pm Pacific Time. This week we get Act 9, Serenity – Princess, as the past is revealed! We will finally get a proper flashback to the events of Silver Millennium and this means lots of kissing!

Sailor Moon Crystal Act 9 - Silver Millennium

As the title suggests we will be learning the true identity of Princess Serenity. What am I saying? Obviously we already know that it’s Minako! Just like we had two episodes with Tuxedo Mask’s name in a row (Act 6, Tuxedo Mask and Act 7, Mamoru Chiba – Tuxedo Mask) we now get two episodes in a row that are Minako’s name (Act 8, Minako – Sailor V and Act 9, Serenity – Princess).

The next English dubbed episode of Sailor Moon Crystal will be available this Friday, January 1st, at 9pm Eastern Time on Hulu and Neon Alley. This week we get Act 8, Minako – Sailor V, which introduces us to Sailor Venus. Is there really anyone who is going to believe that Minako is actually Princess Serenity? Regardless, we will be made to believe this is true in this episode. With the introduction of Minako we will also see Artemis, her wise mentor who I’m totally shipping her with.

Cherami Leigh will be voicing Sailor Venus and Johnny Yong Bosch, Adam the Black Power Ranger, will voice Artemis the cat. As with other voice actors these are the same voices which Viz used in their new dub of the original Sailor Moon anime. Follow them on Twitter at @cheramileigh and @johnnyyongbosch.

Sailor Moon Crystal Act 7 - Usagi discovers Mamoru is Tuxedo Mask

The latest English dubbed episode of Sailor Moon Crystal is now available on Hulu and Neon Alley. This week, just in time for Christmas, we get Act 7, Mamoru Chiba – Tuxedo Mask. Usagi slept over at Mamoru’s last night so they now know each other’s identity. We get a flashback to Mamoru’s childhood where he wore a hat that looks just like Terry Bogard’s from Fatal Fury. Believe it or not we’re actually halfway through the first story arc at this point. In another 7 episodes we will be saying goodbye to the Dark Kingdom and introducing Chibusa and the Black Moon Clan.

Sailor Moon Crystal Act 7 - Young Mamoru

Fans who previously viewed the subtitled version when it was originally released will notice a considerable change in this version. One of my favourite parts of this episode was creepy Umino who looks like a Heartless from the Kingdom Hearts games. For whatever reason this scene was updated for the Blu-Ray release to include a less monstrous looking Umino. Since the updated home video versions are used for the English dub these are the visuals we get. Another change we see is that when Sailor Venus shows up at the end of the episode we originally saw her looking like Sailor V from behind but Sailor Venus from the front. This animation mistake was corrected to include Sailor Venus from all angles. To see changes between the two versions of Sailor Moon Crystal check out Crystal Comparisons.

Next week is Act 8, Minako – Sailor V. Make no mistake though. This will feature Minako Aino as Sailor Venus more than as Sailor V.

Santa Claus finally brought you the gift you wanted. The next episode of Sailor Moon Crystal will be available to watch in English on December 25th, Christmas Day, at 9pm Eastern Time on Hulu and Neon Alley. This week we will be getting Act 7, Mamoru Chiba – Tuxedo Mask. Usagi slept over at Mamoru’s and now everyone seems to know who’s who! We will get a flashback to Mamoru as a child where he has Terry Bogart’s hat.

The episode will also feature our first look at Artemis and Sailor Venus. We had previously seen her only as her other identity, Sailor V. It looks like the old gang is just about back together!

Next Friday is Act 7, Mamoru Chiba – Tuxedo Mask. Original title, isn’t it? Usagi slept over at Mamoru’s so now everything is on the table.
