I thought this deserved its own thread, considering we have threads about rare manga artwork. This design appeared on the new Sailor Moon-themed marriage registration paperwork.

It's unusual because most of the artwork for the '90s anime merchandise have used old artwork, but this is definitely brand new. And while it's also in the '90s anime style, the coloring and feel is also similar to the manga, so it's kind of like a blend. There's 1 or 2 more artworks in this style, but I'm too lazy to find them right now.

Really curious who designed them! Wondering if anyone knows.

This art style reminds me of the old school children's storybooks like "Little Bear" and "Winnie the Pooh" :P
I love this art style....they were used in the Anna Sui x Sailor Moon merchandise collaboration. :-P

In the first pic, I kinda like how there's a sort of "gold and silver" theme going on with each of their outfits, as it's quite rare for Mamoru to be associated with the color of gold instead of the usual color associations of black, white, gray, green, or lavender. It makes sense for gold to be one of his main colors considering his connection to the Golden Crystal/Golden Kingdom/etc. an Usagi's complementary association with the color of silver (Silver Crystal/Silver Millennium/etc.). Not only is his shirt gold in that pic but his white coat has just the fainted hint of a gold tint to it, complementing the silvery tint of Usagi's dress.

Also, it's nice to finally see a wedding pic of the two of them being just pleasantly calm and normal, rather than emphasizing the "lovey-dovey"/"uber-pretty" aspects of their wedding that we usually get from Usagi/Mamoru wedding scenes. Not that there shouldn't be any of that in a wedding, mind you. It's just that it's rare for us to get any other sides of the occasion beyond those, and I like how much more modest and serene this artwork makes the occasion look compared to other ones that are more in-you-face about it.

But is Usagi's dress white and gold or is it blue and gold? :googly: In all seriousness, I love this artwork. It makes me think of how Kenji would probably be bawling his eyes out on this day because his girl is all grown up here. But why are the roses black? Black roses seem like they would be more fitting for a funeral than a wedding to me.

The first image is cropped, but the full certificate also includes Luna and Artemis. They can also be seen here.

So cute! Interestingly, Luna and Artemis have their manga eye-coloring (blue and green respectively).

Their rose decorations also look interesting. :)
