The English version of Sailor Moon Crystal Act 14, Conclusion and Commencement – Petite Étrangère, is now available on Hulu

Sailor Moon Crystal Act 14 - Chibiusa breaking up a romantic moment

You can now watch the entire Dark Kingdom story arc in English on Hulu or Neon Alley. This week we got Act 14, Conclusion and Commencement – Petite Étrangère, which wraps up the Dark Kingdom story arc for good and starts us off with the new Black Moon story arc with the appearance of the pink haired Chibiusa. This new faithful dub will not be calling her Rini like some fans may be used to! Chibiusa’s voice is provided by Sandy Fox, who also voiced her in Viz’s new English dub of the original Sailor Moon anime.

A lot of this episode takes place on the Moon where we get a look at human Luna. Anime fans will remember human Luna from the Sailor Moon S movie, though she appears in her human form more frequently in the manga. This appearance however is a Sailor Moon Crystal original change from the source material, as we see her earlier than we otherwise should. We see the the image of one of this story arc’s new villains in the fire. I previously had mentioned that this was Rubeus, because he is who we see in the manga, though some fans have mentioned that his hair looks more like Demande’s than Rubeus’s, which is slicked upwards out of the eyes. What do you think? It doesn’t really change the story but so much to say this is one of the Black Moon Clan’s jerks!

Next week is Act 15, Infiltration – Sailor Mars. With the Dark Kingdom out of the way we’ll meet a lot of the Black Moon Clan and find out a bit of what’s up with this weird new girl who fell from the sky.

How long is that title? Oh boy. Also I’m fixing the spelling mistake in “Étrangère” in my posts. I expected Viz to fix the spelling errors the Japanese had made but I guess they’re not French either. Consistency would be nice but the title screen title is different than the Hulu episode title, both of which are wrong.

A Human Luna Pullip figure is coming in August

Human Luna Pullip doll

The latest Pullip doll has been announced on the official Sailor Moon site. It’s Human Luna! Luna is usually a cat but in a few instances she appears as a human. Most fans would know this form best from the Sailor Moon S Movie, which is based on a standalone manga story “The Lover of Princess Kaguya”. Her human form also appears at other times in the manga. Most recently in Sailor Moon Crystal we briefly see an image of Human Luna while she is praying on the Moon.

Pullip dolls are high quality, though somewhat expensive, dolls with disproportionately large heads. This doll will retail for 180,000 yen, almost $150 US. A more expensive Premium Bandai exclusive version of these dolls is usually made, which will often have school uniforms for most of the Sailor Guardians. What could the Premium Bandai exclusive outfit for Human Luna be, given she only ever appears in these clothes? Human Luna’s adult form does not resemble the younger Sailor Luna from the live action series enough for that to be the obvious choice, though that would be a great exclusive.

Sailor Luna

Dolls for many of the Sailor Guardians as well as Princess Serenity, Tuxedo Mask and Sailor Chibi Moon have been released or announced to date. Human Luna is a bit of a surprise given a lot of prominent characters have still not been released and so little Human Luna merchandise had been made to date. There has still been no announcement for Sailor Pluto or Sailor Saturn pullip dolls or any villains from the series. One has to wonder if we’ll get Shingo, Rhett Butler and Sailor Luna before getting the often neglected Sailor Pluto!
