The Sailor Moon anime turned 20 on March 7th of this year and to celebrate this milestone Nico Nico will be holding a live event which will include announcement of a “special surprise project” . Attending from Japan will be Sailor Moon anime voice actors Kotono Mitsuishi (voice of Sailor Moon) and Toru Furuya (voice of Tuxedo Mask) as well as Fumio Osano, the editor for many of Naoko Takeuchi’s manga who she refers to as “Osa-P” in liner notes. Also appearing from France will be the music group Momoiro Clover Z who’s colourful look is very reminiscent of the Sailor Team.
The event will take place on Friday July 6th at 7:30pm local Japanese time, 6:30am Eastern Standard Time. Though the event will be streamed online it would appear a paid membership is needed. Japanese pages with information can be found at Kodansha’s official site and Nico Nico’s site. English translations of these pages can be found on the Miss Dream Sailor Moon fan site.
Speculation is rampant over what the special announcement will be. Maybe it will be something completely lame and maybe it will be something completely amazing like a new anime series or new manga stories. We’ll know in about a week and once we do we’ll be sure to share.
