Aw snap, Viz is hosting a Sailor Moon event at Otakon


In the name of the moon, Sailor Moon Day returns

Yikes! I almost forgot that Otakon's happening this weekend. Anyway, if you're planning to attend the con, Viz is having another Sailor Moon Day event, which happens to be almost similar to the one from Anime Expo '14. This time around, Viz'll be premiering two more Sailor Moon episodes that feature the new dub.

Other than that, anyone who drops by Viz's booth will get the chance to participate in a Sailor Moon Stamp Rally where they'll have to collect a series of stamps that are scattered throughout Otakon's realms. While the event's prize is just an exclusive Sailor Moon coin, the game itself might be fun if it takes the participants into interesting regions within the con.

While I won't be able to check out the event, it's still good to hear that Viz's treating their Sailor Moon license well. If you're planning to attend Otakon, then you can check out Viz's schedule in the section below, along with some info on Viz's other events and retail items that'll be at Otakon as well.
