Ayaka Komatsu in Brazil
The live action Sailor Moon actress, Ayaka Komatsu, went to Brazil, as a guest at their anime convention, AnimeFriends 2019, back in July. She shared a couple pictures of her time there on her instagram below:
She even had a panel, talking about her experience as the guardian of love & beauty, as well as some fun with some fans. Check it out below! (NOTE: It’s not in English, but you can scan and check out what happened there. ;) )
Ayaka Komatsu at Shining Moon Tokyo
As if we’re done talking about her, Ayaka even went to the first days of the new permanent Sailor Moon-themed show-and-diner in Azabu Juban, Shining Moon Tokyo, which opened up back on August 15th. You can see her tour, as well as how the shows are here.
You’re such a busy gal, Ayaka-chan. And we love you for that! 🧡
We’ll post more updates, as they come along. Until then, thanks for reading and checking out what’s new in the Sailor Moon world. ^_^

I’m Spanish native so I could get most of the talk in the panel despite it’s in Portuguese. There is also a 1st part with another panel with Ayaka (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Knaku1sqQ_Q)
They have many things in common. In a brief summary she’s asked about how were the auditions to become Sailor Venus and the presence of Naoko on them, and the difficulties filming the show. Also her friendship with the other actresses that continues today, like when they sang all together in Keiko’s marriage. She talks about they’re planning to do a 5-party travel or even some kind of tour (I couldn’get exactly what she said there, if it was a private trip or thematic one). Another thing is that she would like to do a SM character again, but something like Beryl or similar.
That what I remember, but you can get the idea. Apparently the organization wants her to go return to Brazil next year.
Sorry for the typos, it was late at night lol.
Another interesting question was why PGSM turned to be so dramatic, especially with Minako/Venus and her absence in the final chapters. Ayaka said that was because the show was not aimed only to children, but to a broader audience, so they decided to make that sharp turn. A difficult decision she remarked.
