Welcome to The Sailor Senshi Page, a fan website dedicated to Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon
in all its incarnations: the original manga (comic) by Takeuchi Naoko; the Japanese anime by Toei
Animation, including the TV series and three movies; the live action Pretty Guardian Sailormoon
TV series; the Sailor Moon live action musicals (also known as "Seramyu"); and world dubs and
translations of the anime and manga. You can find detailed information, reviews, movie files and sound
clips, pictures and images, and plenty of other special features and articles on this website.
Sailor Moon is a magical girls series about Tsukino Usagi, a young, klutzy, crybaby girl, who is also
very naive and pure-hearted. One day, on her way to junior high school, Usagi comes across several boys
torturing a black cat and saves it. Later that day, she encounters the cat at her home. The black cat,
who can talk, introduces herself as Luna. Luna says that Usagi is one of the soldiers she has been
searching for; as a Sailor Soldier, Usagi's duty is to find the moon princess and to save the world from
the Dark Kingdom. Usagi, so Luna explains, is Sailor Moon. Usagi doesn't take this news seriously at
first, but she nevertheless cooperates and transforms into Sailor Moon, much to her shock. So begins her
adventures as the pretty sailor-suited soldier. In her new role as protector of Earth, Sailor Moon finds
allies in other Sailor Soldiers and in the mysterious Tuxedo Kamen (Tuxedo Mask), and she discovers secrets
about her own true identity.

new anime reboot was originally planned to begin this summer. "Fumio Osano, the Sailor Moon manga's Kodansha editor

July 7, 2012: Thoughts of a Doink posted some
clarifications regarding misconceptions about the new Sailor Moon anime: no
director has been announced, the theme song has not been announced, Mitsuishi Kotono's blog post about the Dark
Kingdom not being the enemy was metaphorical, and the anime has not been stated to be for only adults. Sailor
Moon Stuff also posted some
clarifications: no animation studio has been announced, no seiyuu have been confirmed, and the series
is not confirmed to be based on the manga.
July 6, 2012: Updated: There is currently no confirmation that Mitsuishi Kotono and Furuya Tohru will be
returning to voice Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Kamen in the new Sailor Moon anime series. The two attended
the 20th anniversary event, which was aired live on Nico Nico Douga, but no official casting announcement was made.
Anime News Network states that the anime staff wants a simultaneous worldwide release
of the new series.
According to Famitsu, as translated
by Sailor Moon Stuff, beginning in October 2012, the manga will be re-released in 10 volumes
as "collectors' editions" in Japan, and the original anime will have some new DVDs as well, though the DVDs may be
selected episodes. Additionally, select merchandise will be re-released in Japan. Sailor Moon Stuff has more
translations from the 20th anniversary celebration event, including information on how
the Sailor Moon manga and anime started, Mitsuishi's and Furuya's initial experiences, and other tidbits.
July 6, 2012: During the 20th anniversary Sailor Moon celebration event today, Kodansha and Takeuchi
Naoko announced that a new Sailor Moon anime will begin in summer 2013. There is no word yet what the new
anime series will cover or whether the original seiyuu will be returning. However, the anime series is confirmed
not to be a movie series. The theme song (or one of the theme songs) will be sung by idol group Momoiro Clover Z.

and your goal is apparently to become the top hostess. Girls RPG features cameos of several
well-known anime/manga characters, who appear as clients in the hostess club. These include Lupin and
Fujiko from Lupin III, Joe from Ashita no Joe, Chiaki from Nodame Cantabile, and
now Tuxedo Kamen (Tuxedo Mask) from Sailor Moon. The game is still under development, to be
released in 2012 in Japan. Source: Andriasang.com
