TAKAHIRO’s Comment

I’m incredibly happy to be involved in the world of Sailor Moon, which I’ve loved since I was little. Using talented performers and the latest technology, I’d like to create a stage show that will be loved by many people. I know there are fans all over the world, and I’d like for them to enjoy a new style of Japanese entertainment. I hope you enjoy it.

*New Sailor Moon Musical Project!

A new Sailor Moon Musical project will debut in Summer 2019! SeraMyu is going to power up and be reborn anew!

Closing

That’s a LOT of new information for the year! Here’s to hoping we’ll get some of that information we keep craving on the new Crystal movies from the Osabu and Chiaki Kon talk at Anime Matsuri!

And then there’s the return of the musicals in Summer 2019, which is huge! New cast? Who will stick around? I’m hoping a few people get to come back and shine some more, what about you? Any performers you’d like to see return to the stage once more?

See you all next time!
