🌙 Sailor Moon Returns to New York
And a new Sailor Moon anime box set is on the way
Heya and welcome to the latest issue of my Sailor Moon newsletter! There’s some pretty big Sailor Moon news this week so let’s dive right in!
The Return of Sailor Moon The Super Live
Sailor Moon The Super Live, the Japanese spin-off of the Japan-based musicals for American fans, is returning to New York for a special performance at the Japan Parade event in Central Park on the 14th of May.
The performance will likely just consist of a couple of songs but it’s definitely a must-see for any Sailor Moon fans who can make it to the event. This is also an incredibly good sign that more Sailor Moon musicals are planned for outside of Japan, at least as far as the USA is concerned anyway.
Sailor Moon Anime Full-Season Blu-ray Box Sets Announced
This week, Viz announced the first full-season Blu-ray box set for the first season of the 90s Sailor Moon anime for the USA region.
This set essentially contains the two previously released Part 1 and Part 2 releases in one convenient package. The content appears to be the same as the previous releases so this set is mostly for those who missed out on those or who simply want the first season of the Sailor Moon anime in one collection.
Like Viz’s previous releases, this set contains the original Japanese language version with and without English subtitles and the new English dub made by Viz. It’s also Blu-ray only. Pre-orders are now live here.
It’s currently expected to come out on the 14th of June.
