The cast of the original English dub of Sailor Moon have a couple of convention appearances coming up this month! This includes Linda Ballantyne, the 3rd voice of Sailor Moon, Katie Griffin, the voice of Sailor Mars, Susan Roman, the voice of Sailor Jupiter, and Toby Proctor, the 2nd voice of Tuxedo Mask.

This coming weekend, June 19th to the 21st, Linda Ballantyne, Katie Griffin, Susan Roman and Toby Proctor will be at Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con at the South Point Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. Their panel will be the Sailor Moon Spotlight on Saturday June 20th at 11am. Autographs will follow immediately afterwards. I’ve been to a couple of conferences at the South Point Casino in the past. It’s a nice location though it is far from the strip. Those who are considering traveling for this convention will probably want to set an evening aside to take a cab to the Las Vegas strip to see the city in all of its glory.

The following weekend, June 27th and 28th, Linda Ballantyne, Katie Griffin and Toby Proctor will be at OZ Comic-Con Melbourne. There are a number of OZ Comic-Cons all over Australia including Melbourne, Brisbane, Sidney, Perth and Adelaide. The Melbourne convention will take place at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.

Jennifer Cihi is often referred to as the singing voice of Sailor Moon as she is credited as Sailor Moon, Princess Serena and Sailor Mars on tracks of the Sailor Moon: Songs From the Hit TV Series and Lunarock albums. Though Sailor Moon never actually sang in the English dub many of the songs she provided the voice for had a narrative that presented them as the voice of Sailor Moon. During the original 65 dubbed episodes she sang “I Wanna Be A Star!” from the episode “So You Want to Be a Superstar”, “My Only Love” from when Princess Serena is revealed in “A Crystal Clear Destiny”, “Carry On” which plays during the fight with Beryl and “It’s A New Day” which plays when Serena wakes up after that same fight in “Day of Destiny” and “Call My Name” which is sung by Raye at the Autumn festival during “Raye’s Day in the Spotlight”. Jennifer Cihi returned to sing on the second soundtrack, providing the vocals for “The Power of Love” which played during the battle with Wiseman in “Final Battle”, “I Want Someone to Love”, “I Want to Hold Your Hand” and “Who Do You Think You Are?”.

This panel, which was recorded on May 23rd 2014, includes Toby Proctor, the voice of Tuxedo Mask, John Stocker, voice director for the S and SuperS seasons of the anime as well as the three movies, Linda Ballantyne, the voice of Sailor Moon from Sailor Moon S and SuperS, Katie Griffin, the voice of Sailor Mars, and Susan Roman, the voice of Sailor Jupiter. Watch them take questions from the audience about their time recording Sailor Moon, including a humourous story about the dubbing of an adult film.
