Hello, some of you may remember me, and some of you may not. My name is RJ and five years ago this July, I began a fan season of sailor moon reusing old footage and visual effects to create new episodes.

After quite a long hiatus I have returned to my project and have started to assemble a new team to bring the episodes to fruition. For those interested, I will keep this thread updated on any new solar sailors news, how close we are to completion and such.
Not long after the battle with Galaxia, Serena and her friends have settled in to a somewhat normal life, high school has continued and Darien is returning from college, but just as always the Sailor Soldiers find themselves fighting strange monsters lurking with in the shadows of tokyo. Chaos has watched for thousands of years as Serena and her friends continually died and then were brought back by the silver crystal. One of the great rules of the beings of power is the final rest in the Sailor Graveyard following death, for sailor soldiers, kinds, priests, and even agents of chaos. Chaos has seen Serena break this rule and has seized the opportunity to revive every monster that has ever died. Serena finds herself in a bind, with the tier recently broken by Galaxia she is relying heavily on her friends.
Somewhere in the universe, chaos is lingering, watching from afar as his monsters toy with the sailor scouts, waiting by a deep grave, where no one knows who is buried, no one but, Queen Serenity. Awoken by Chaos' presence, she reaches out to her only daughter, and shares with her the power that once belonged to the sailor scout charged with protecting the entire solar system, the sailor scout of our very own sun, the Solar Sailor. It is up to Sailor moon and the sailor soldiers to unlock the secrets surrounding the moon kingdom, and stop chaos once and for all.
Sailor Moon Solar SailorS will have 6 episodes in total, with the possibility of 1 or 2 specials depending on how fast we complete our current order. We will include new fuku that resemble the "Eternal" outfits from the manga (with our own alterations and omissions for the convenience of editing, and story) as well as a new original character (Sailor Iris), and will dive in to many questions the fandom has asked such as "Why can you see the outer senshi in the moon kingdom flashback episode?", "Why is there no sailor earth?", and "who is the sailor scout of our own sun".
Episodes are expected to begin airing this fall on the youtube channel, however small teasers and a possible special will be released beforehand, as well as a larger series trailer.
Right now we have no started on the dubbing process of the episodes, but based on the visuals only, this is how much we have completed.
Episode 1: 100%
Episode 2: 80%
Episode 3: 60%
Episode 4: 95%
Episode 5: 94%
Episode 6: 80%
As you can see we are very near completion (as should be the case considering we started 5 years ago!) and a lot of our work is set in stone and ready to be finished, with most episodes only needing 1 or 2 scenes finished as well as some general tweaking of the visuals. We are expecting to begin dubbing in June at the very latest.
Feel free to ask any questions and i will do my best to answer. Listed below is going to be our major crew list (excluded cast, as we are currently reworking the way we edit the audio)
RJ "Solar SailorS"
Assistant Director/ Audio Engineer:
Visual effects team:
That's all for now but we are always looking for more help. We have 1 newly animated character as well as two new characters edited in from another show, so if you happen to own sony vegas, after effects, or another program capable of frame by frame edits such as masking, feel free to message me to join the team. Perks include previews and even seeing episodes before their release date. This also applies to anyone with other talents including voices, or art that matches the sailor moon style (Trace animators are okay as long as they can adjust the costume while tracing and the hair style as well. We currently only have 1 animator active at the moment, with the others having worked on past animations for us).
We have created a tutorial for those who wish to know how to mask:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ECXboCvYUwI
