Sailor Stars part 1 comes out on bluray on Tuesday! I haven't not watched any of the Sailor Stars dub clips yet. In other Sailor Moon news, I'm awaiting a package with Kotono Mitsuishi's autograph. Also, today I picked up my first vintage 90s Japanese Sailor Moon toy which is a Sailor Mars figure with a castle playset. I'm still shocked that I was able to find this at my local Half Price Books and for only $25 too! ^_^

So, apparently Viz is gonna be issuing a replacement booklet for the limited edition bluray box sets of Sailor Stars. The reason why is because there were some romaji errors in the Sailor Star Song translation. Also, the relationship chart in the booklet now lists Haruka and Michiru's relationship as friendship and they misspelled Haruka's last name as Tennoh.

So, the two Sailor Moon Crystal movies are coming out next year and will be referred to as Sailor Moon Eternal. Yesterday, they released a 30 second teaser trailer featuring the new character designs for the inners. It also looks like Moonlight Densetsu will be returning as well. I'm happy with the new character designs and I think they're very cute. Also, other recent Sailor Moon stuff announced includes:
An ice skating show starring that Russian girl who did a Sailor Moon routine in 2020
A musical based off of the Princess Kaguya's Lover side story in 2020
A digital release of the Eternal Edition of the manga
A collaboration with Uniqlo in 26 different countries
A two day show highlighting composer Akiko Kosaka's works featuring cast members from the original musicals

Though I hope that someday they'll announce a full color, 5 volume set of the manga featuring new cover art by Naoko. Each volume would contain a full story arc and there would also be a single full color volume for Codename Sailor V too.

I recently finished my full viewing of the English Viz dub of Sailor Moon R: The Movie. A very solid turnout with the voice actors giving it their all in each of their performances. The villain shares a past with Mamoru (and Usagi as well as we come to find out in the end) and his fascination with him delves into the slightly yaoi territory but doesn't cross that physical bridge as much as it is emotional. As for pairings, as much as I love Usako/Mamo-chan, the fan in me got satisfied during the scene where the main Sailor Scouts declare to Fiore why Usagi is so important to them, in particular Rei. Yeah that's right, Usagi/Rei with their old couple bickering is my go to fanon pairing and don't think I missed that shot near the end where Rei is the only one hugging Usagi among the others, even Mamo-chan! :D Another thing I have to mention is how kawaii child Usagi is in that scene of her offering Mamo-chan the rose due to becoming a big sister to Shingo. Overall, I truly believe that I may have gotten through the best of the three movies since it focuses on Usagi and the others focus more on Luna and Chibiusa. Therefore, I hereby give this one a perfect 10 across the board! ^_^

The first of the two Sailor Moon Eternal movies comes out on September 11th, 2020. I can't wait to see this in theatres! Also, Sailor Stars part 2 comes out on bluray on Tuesday. I'm going to picking up that and Eternal Edition volume 6 from Barnes and Noble. Also, the Viz dub of Sailor Moon SuperS is has been on Hulu for about a month so now we have the first 4 seasons dubbed on there. Sometime soon I will be getting a set of 5 Sailor Moon R glasses still in the box in the mail. Also, as a thank you gift from my regional manager for some stuff for his new baby girl he got me a plushie of Sailor V.

Getting a little stir crazy and impatient over my lack of progress on Sailor Moon R series, I decided to take a break from it and come back when I am more than ready to do so. In the meantime, I tried out the third show Sailor Moon S' first episode in Japanese mainly so I could hear Masako Katsuki as Michiru/Sailor Neptune for the first time in chronological order. I had purchased the Casino live action movie on Blu Ray and it featured the Japanese audio option which happened to be how I heard Masako dub Ginger (Sharon Stone's part) and I thought she did an excellent job. Can't wait to see and hear how she and Megumi Ogata as Haruka/Sailor Uranus affect the upcoming battle of the Sailor Senshi. Also of note, even though it's the third show, it still uses the second show's ED song so far. I thought it peculiar so I checked the DVD box and it revealed that it only will appear again in the next episode for the last time and it's a catchy tune with such a positive message so here's to the memories it brought.

So the trailer for Sailor Moon Eternal dropped and I think it's pretty good.

The best looking part is still the "flashback" to the OG series, but it has gotten a lot better. Maybe Stars will even be watchable!
Just yesterday I've seen a Trailer for the series on German TV... It's a travesty honestly, to fuck up a beloved legacy franchise that bad; from all the Remakes and Reboots, Sailor Moon Crystal might not be as bad as the FLCequeLs, but it's down there for sure.

Kind of off topic but I have been frequently hearing "One Week" by the Barenaked Ladies and other than the fact that yesterday when I saw the music video for the first time and realized that there were not one but two vocalists, but the lyrics even mention Sailor Moon near the end of the second verse. Here it is from my own memory:

"Gonna get in tune
With Sailor Moon
Cause that cartoon
Has got the boom
Anime babes that
Make me think the wrong thing."


And to think the song was made in the late 90s back when dubbed Sailor Moon was still in it's early stages.

Ahh, yes. I remember happily freaking out about the Barenaked Ladies song because it was right in 98 when Cartoon Network was playing the DIC episodes—my introduction into the show. It was the year before the final batch of Sailormoon R episodes (while dubbed in 98) were aired, too: https://toonami.fandom.com/wiki/Lunar_Eclipse

Oh, here are some scans of the character designs for the upcoming Sailor Moon (SuperS/Dream arc) movie, Sailor Moon Eternal part 1:
and some comparison shots of Crystal:

Also, a full color digital release of the Sailor Moon manga is happening! I'm hoping that Kodansha USA will release hardcover English translated editions. I also hope that Codename Sailor V will get the full color treatment too.
