    MY GOD! Such wonderful news!! And so unexpected (at least not before the anime release). A woman playing Tuxedo Kamen could be really interesting (makes sense since Naoko was always a fan of Takarazuka Revue). They all look gorgeous. I’m not sure about Usagi and Minako, but I’ll love this Myu even if they suck :D

    Being there would be a dream come true. I just checked plane tickets hoping for some major discount but as always – $2000 bugs to see a $100 show. Why life? WHY?!

    At least we know there’ll be a DVD (and hopefully Bluray). There always are.

    As far as the announcement goes – I’m keeping fingers crossed for a Bluray release of the anime. I don’t really consider the 10 year old R2 DVDs repackages into a new Box Set – major news.

      As soon as I read that, I thought…so that’s how he got involved with Naoko Takeuchi – through her husband! :D

    So, the musicals are coming back from hiatus. Who knew that would have been foreseen, since it’s been 10 years + since the last one. Very nice to see them return.

    Quick glances at the actresses:
    Based on their looks alone, I can see Yuu Takahashi as Jupiter, Kanon Nanaki as Mars, and Shiori Sakata as Venus. I’m not sure on how well they’ll play the roles but that’s just at the glance. As for Satomi Ookubo and Myabi Matsurra as Moon and Mercury, I don’t see it (yet), but I’m open to see what happens. As for Yuga Yamato as the first Tuxedo Kamen, this should be interesting. If nothing else, the musical already makes sailor moon history just for that.

    As to the new Sailor Moon figurines, preorders are already being made available on entertainmentearth.com

    All in all, if nothing else, this just made my day, and I’ll be on the lookout for this when it’s available on dvd.

    laters,

    RRViper
    (who hopefully purchased his pre-ordered figurine for the first edition with the extras that will come with it)

      RRViper! It’s so good to see you back around these parts. I’m pretty excited for the new musical as well – it’s been a long time (well over a year!) since I’ve released a musical, I have been lazy and bad, but this will be a good opportunity to get back in the saddle and translate them again. :)
