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.

Wow, this artwork is gorgeous!

It reminds me of Naoko's style as well. I wish the 90's anime had looked this elegant.

It's pretty. Every time I look at Mamoru for too long...he looks like Seiya.

This art style reminds me of the old school children's storybooks like "Little Bear" and "Winnie the Pooh" :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.

They aren't. They're white.

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. :)

I love that they gave Luna blue eyes! Now why couldn't Crystal have gotten that right?

My guess is that it's probably a freelance artist. You'd be surprised at the amount of work like this that's outsourced, usually for one-shot work. A friend of mine works is a freelance artist who occasionally wins bids on doing Disney puzzles here in Japan, and I have another friend who occasionally does artwork for official anime licensed games. o_O There are editors who keep strict quality control, though, and make edits which is how character style and consistency is kept.

Unfortunately, contracts mean they're not allowed to talk about it publicly, so you aren't really able to track down the individual artists.

I'm unclear on what the "marriage certificate" with the OP picture on it is for. Is it a special edition legal document that real people are using to get married?
The are & color style of the OP pic reminds me of a mid 90s PC date sim game.

It's not a legal document in its own right, per se, but basically the application/notice form that you submit to the local city hall or ward office to tell them you got married. Once you submit the form, you'll never see it again, so it's more of a novelty than anything else. Most of the popular women's / marriage magazines here in Japan include colorful/pink forms and you can pick up Disney ones in special editions.

Once the city hall approves your paperwork, all you get is a lame little postcard that says "gotcha, looks like you're married!"

=p I got married in Japan last year, so kinda disappointed this wasn't out then.

Would be nice if that "lame little postcard" at least had Sailor Moon-themed graphics on it. :D

Oh, you know, if they'd like.. send you your application form with a seal of approval on it or something. =p You spend forever filling out the details, getting witnesses and all that, it's a shame that it probably goes in a shredder. Usagi and Mamoru, IN THE SHREDDER!

Now you've made the fans reluctant to use those forms. lol

I'd probably use a regular form, but have my spouse fill out the Sailor Moon one with me and we frame it instead of sending it.

Do we know when these go on sale? Seems like if someone could pick one up and scan it in high quality, people in the West could also make their own...
I was able to find a high quality scan of at least one of them here

[Edit]

Nevermind, found the answer. All designs are available now, online, for 3,000 yen each.

Not too bad! They also give you a smaller one printed on really nice paper so that you can use it in a scrapbook or something.
It also looks like, from December to March 25, the city of Sagamihara is giving out a Sailor Moon marriage notice for free.
