Get a taste of the Sailor Moon performance for Anime Matsuri!


Japanese Musical in the US? YES!

Sailor Moon fans are in for a treat this coming April in Houston, Texas of all places, where a special performance by the cast of the Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon: The Musical will be held at Anime Matsuri convention. Anime Matsuri, an annual anime and Japanese culture convention in Houston, Texas, will be featuring a "special performance" from the cast which will include:

  • Hotaru Nomoto (Sailor Moon)
  • Yume Takeuchi (Sailor Mercury)
  • Karen Kobayashi (Sailor Mars)
  • Kaede (Sailor Jupiter)
  • Rimo Hasegawa (Sailor Venus),
  • Syu Shiotsuki (Sailor Uranus)
  • Sayaka Fujioka (Sailor Neptune)
  • Mikako Ishii (Sailor Pluto)
  • Karin Takahashi (Sailor Saturn)
  • Dancers: Risa Kawamura, Yoshimi Hidano, Ayano Nagasawa, Ayumi Sagisaka
  • Yuga Yamato (Tuxedo Mask)

While it says it is a "special performance", as in not the entire show, it is still pretty impressive to be able to bring over an experience that many anime and manga lovers in the west miss out on that just can't be replicated over a video screen.

If you want a bit of a preview of what might be in store from some of the cast, a digest video trailer for the upcoming DVD release is now here for fans to get ready for a bit of live action magical girl musical action. The upcoming DVD release will be from the recent production from last year.

Anime Matsuri is one of the regular conventions to be visited by Japanator and yours truly will try to brave the crowds of first-time Tuxedo Mask cosplayers that are totally not doing it to hit on Sailor Moon cosplayers. You know who I'm talking about.
