    We're getting a (Japanese) novelization of the Sailor Moon story ?!?

    If all the adaptations were like PGSM or the La Reconquista novelization, I wouldn't mind, but 90% of them are pretty uninspired :/

    Unused Concepts You Wish Were Used

    I know this technically isn't an unused concept per se, but I always felt like this moment from Act 2 was foreshadowing a revelation that Luna really was an angel, and I wouldn't mind seeing a take on Sailor Moon that ran with that idea.

    Favorite Obscure Characters

    I wish we could have met the other students who placed in the top 5 of the National Practice Tests in Act 2. I know they don't necessarily attend Juban Junior High, but maybe some of them attended Crystal Seminar? Maybe one of them is the girl we see talking to Ami in Act 16. Maybe one of them...

    We're getting a (Japanese) novelization of the Sailor Moon story ?!?

    Yes. Doesn't look like there are any plans to adapt the rest of the manga.

    We're getting a (Japanese) novelization of the Sailor Moon story ?!?

    Finished reading chapter 3 (a.k.a. Act 9). Overall another pretty straightforward retelling of the manga. Only a few noteworthy things: - The moonlight magically repairs Mamoru's broken pocket watch. - The novel says only that a female warrior killed Endymion; the text doesn't specify that it...

    What should the next live action project be?

    Darien should be Latino/Hispanic since his music cues tend to have a Latin influence, and it would be a nice nod to Yuu Shirota, who played him in some of the musicals. Beryl should be Jewish since she speaks (nonsense) Hebrew in the manga. Rei needs to be at least half-Japanese. I think the...

    What should the next live action project be?

    A fully Japanese (or at least Asian) cast would be ideal, but since the upcoming ice show's cast is 60% white (plus Anza, who's half-white), I don't think Naoko herself would object to a live action Sailor Moon movie with a mostly non-Japanese cast. I mean, the ethnicity of the characters/actors...

    Anyone know if it's possible to get DRM-free copies of the Japanese digital release of the manga?

    What a beautiful, intricately detailed picture of Beryl from Act 3:

    What should the next live action project be?

    Whoops! Somehow forgot to include ballet and opera in the poll ^_^' Anyway: I'd love to see a kabuki production next. I think that would be perfect for a Sailor V adaptation actually, given that most of the characters in that series are male anyway, and given how that series is more of an...

    What should the next live action project be?

    From stage musicals and kigurumi shows to a tokusatsu series and dinner theater, at this point Sailor Moon is predominately a live action franchise. Today's announcement concerning the upcoming ice show, Prism on Ice, made me wonder what the next live action project should be.

    The Canadian dub's 25th anniversary thread

    They need to keep the 25th anniversary out of their mouths after how they've treated the original dub, which isn't even acknowledged anywhere in that article. This "anniversary celebration" is just another opportunity to throw out a bunch of cheap, generic merchandise; they're not interested in...

    Queen Nehellenia manga

    Nehellenia introduces herself as follows: わたしは 新月の闇の王国デッド・ムーンの美しき女王ネヘレニア I am Nehellenia, the beautiful queen of the kingdom of the new moon's darkness, Dead Moon. So literally speaking, she is the queen of Dead Moon, which is the name of the kingdom of the darkness of the new moon...

    Sailor Moon: The First Ice Show

    I feel like Kurt will either play Rei's grandfather, maybe Usagi's dad, or will just be a random cameo (possibly as himself?) who gets targeted by the Dark Kingdom, lol. If they do a dubbed version, I just hope they put together a new cast for the English dub (or they find a competent director...

    Sailor Moon: The First Ice Show

    ANZA!!! What an unexpected surprise! Of course it's the Dark Kingdom arc, :lol: but we all knew it was going to be. Evgenia's costume looks great. Looks like there will be dialog via voiceovers as in Disney on Ice type shows.

    I've just noticed that Sailor Moon's newsprint collage shadow in the first chapter title page illustration is also largely made up of this same interview. smh Of all the interviews/articles they could have used over and over again, why THAT one????

    Season 4 movies update: Sailor Moon Eternal - Coming in 2020

    So far they've cut every single even remotely graphic or gruesome scene that was in the manga, so we'll have to wait and see if they've lightened up a bit for the movies, but my guess would be not.

    The Sailor Moon Potpourri Thread

    Is "Black Moon" a pun on / allusion to the burakumin? Doesn't feel like the similarity is purely coincidental given the circumstances.

    Pretty Guardian Sailor... Mercury?

    Mercury was more popular than Ami in the Nakayoshi polls for the Dark Kingdom and Sailor Stars arcs; for the three intervening arcs, Ami was more popular than Mercury.

    Favorite Group/Combo Attack?

    I knew I forgot one! Anyway, I've always wondered what the non-evil versions of "Galactica Gale" and "Galactica Cannon" would have been called. "Sailor Planet Gale" and "Deadly Cannon" maybe?
