Yeah, I guess Shatner is a fan, It doesn't really surprise me though considering Sailor moon has many Sci-fi elements to it!
I wonder if Takeuchi has heard about or watched Star Trek.

Well, I do know that "Star Trek" is quite popular in Japan. So, she probably had heard of it.

If so, would be great if Shatner could contact her. :D

Star Trek is/was pretty huge in Japan. I know Dirty Pair, and Tenchi Muyo! specifically made tons of references to it.

And some mecha designs seen in various vintage anime such as Cobra & Ideon, too. :)

For me, it's not that of a surpise if Trek Actors should be in on the ride - Star Trek on its own account had many Anime injokes in it (like a Federation vessel of the name Urusei Yatsura(!) http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/SS_Urusei_Yatsura, or the species of the Nausicaans - those are likely not named that for without a good reason! http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Nausicaan

Many people involved in the production of Star Trek were of Japanese or other Asian descent and/or Anime fans themselves (although neither of these need to be the only reason why they did that)

P. S: Okudagrams, anyone? http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Okudagram

Watching Game Grumps' Wind Waker playthrough. I'm surprised Arin actually knows Moonlight Knight... That's not something someone outside the fandom would really know.
Yeah, I remember seeing pics of him at a convention wearing a Sailor Moon shirt, I really think he is a die hard fan.....just for some reason never talks about it, if I ever meet him in person I will ask.

I guess Bill Shatner really is a fan of Sailor Moon and wasn't just trolling that one time.

Lana del Rey makes references to Sm in his video "Lolita" Even the clasp heart out!

These videos are created by the same Lana, so she was the one who decided to put references to SM

That was actually from Michelle Phan's makeup tutorial.

I actually saw Morbid Angel live a very long time ago. Great show, was actually better than most of the metal bands there. Yeah I have been aware for a long time that Trey has been a fan of Sailormoon.
