My pure heart crystal is shattering into a million pieces with feels this morning, because the time has finally come. Sailor Moon Crystal, the new adaptation of of our favorite Senshi, is finally here – and you can stream it for free online right now.
Sailor Moon is being reincarnated in the twenty-first century by Toei Animation, directed by Munehisa Sakai and written by Yuji Kobayashi. The new theme song is by Momoiro Clover Z (though nothing will ever really replace Moonlight Densetsu). Though the style is newer, the content of the show is going to draw more directly from the original manga (which is great news, in my opinion). And having Kotono Mitsuishi return as the voice of Usagi is just perfect.
If you’re not in the good ol’ US of A (which, don’t worry, neither are myself nor my Weekend Editor Partner in Crime, Becky), you can stream the episode for free right now over on CrunchyRoll. If that’s not working for you, give it a spin on Niconico!
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to search for the Illusionary Silver Crystal with my girl gang.
