Ultimate Sailor Soldier Guide: Sailor Moon 2014

"Sailor Moon Crystal" Scheduled to air July 5th on Nico Nico in Japan

Hello everyone, this is Minnie giving you the most up to date information on Sailor Moon's 20th Anniversary!~

Not released in 2013 as planned, the anime has been rescheduled to release in July this year in Japan. While most information was kept hush hush on the new title, as well as the new synopsis, the only thing fans hoped for was for the remake to not lose it's edge.
In these past few month, there has been more releases of Sailor Moon merchandise in the Japanese market, so today I'm going to share some updated information on what's in stores now, what to look forward to, and much, much more!
Welcome to the Wonderful World of Minnie's Ultimate Sailor Soldier Issue!^^

With their successful staged musical back in fall 2013, it looks like they are planning to release yet another musical to the Sailor Moon Musical, "Sera Myu" franchise.  Announced on the new Sailor Moon 20th Anniversary Website, the Sailor moon musical working title, "Petite Etrangere," will be released this summer (Japan only) in Tokyo and Osaka. Little info is given about the synopsis, but if I read correctly (since it's in Japanese), this musical will feature the Black Moon as possible antagonists, and of course our favorite sailor suited super heroines.  Unfortunately, I don't believe they'll do an English version of the new Sailor Moon musicals for an English speaking tour, but maybe if we all fight hard enough, we might just make it happen! To watch the previous Sailor Moon Musical: la Reconquista, you can watch it with English Subs, along with many others on Youtube. Here is a comparison of Sailor Moon Musical Costumes from the 90's to now.

Love how they paired the Luna and Artimis tees with skirts, very good idea, and shows that it could be worn in your daily day to day life^^

 Sailor Moon Narikiri T-Shirts

Originally appearing as Sailor Moon Musical Merchandise, these sailor uniform tops are inspired by the Sailor Scouts outside of the Solar System, with a pastel like feel, these shirts could be paired with jeans or my preference, a skater skirt, for everyday use! For those whom follow a harajuku fashion look, I'd recommend for you this item. This is made in women's japanese sizes and can be booked at Premium Bandai^^

It's not a prop, it's not a replica, it's a PROPLICA! Made for the perfect Sailor Moon Cosplayer and Collector, this is a perfect item to add to your Sailor moon Collection.
