Sailor Moon Miracle Shiny Series Item Replicas Announced
Plus more Sailor Moon planetary princess models for everyone!
Hey there, Sailor Moon fan, and welcome to my latest email newsletter covering all of the recent Sailor Moon news.
If you haven’t subscribed yet, make sure to as it’s a quick and easy way to ensure that you don’t miss out on any future issues.
With new Sailor Moon anime, manga, and musicals on the way throughout the rest of 2022 and into 2023, major Sailor Moon news is going to be dropping very quickly and at very regular intervals.
The top Sailor Moon story right now is the announcement of a new line of item replicas from Premium Bandai. Named the Miracle Shiny Series, this new product line is set to debut in January 2023 with both a Transformation Brooch and a Moon Stick boasting fresh redesigns and a new colour aesthetic.
These Miracle Shiny Series items are very similar to the previously released Proplicas (though noticeably cheaper) and feature LED light-up functionality. Japanese pre-orders are currently up on the Premium Bandai website. I’ll make sure to share international links once they’re live. They’ll likely be live on the CDJapan website soon.
Some other big Sailor Moon news worth highlighting before we delve into the rest of the stories is the debut of the English dub of Sailor Stars on Hulu in the USA and other regions. The original Japanese version of the 90s Sailor Stars anime has been on Hulu for a while now but there’s been a bit of a wait for the English language version made by Viz Media.
The Spanish version of the first season of the 90s Sailor Moon anime also launched on the Claro Video platform this week. I know the Spanish version of Sailor Moon has a lot of fans so this’ll likely make a few Moonie’s week.
Sailor Sponsor: Special thanks to Sarah for sponsoring this issue! She’s currently working on this very cool pin set inspired by planetary symbols and nature. They look stunning.
Sign up to get free email updates on this project here as they get closer to their release. Something that’s really cool is that this project is being done via early access on a new upcoming crowdsourcing platform called Backer Kit. Worth a look if you’re after a new fundraising platform to use.
