“Sailor Moon will punish you in the name of the moon!”
That iconic line kicks off this new clip from the stage musical Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Petite Étrangère, the second stage musical based on Naoko Takeuchi’s wildly popular manga. The three-and-a-half minute video, which was posted to the official Sailor Moon YouTube channel, showcases the song “Ai no Starshine” (Starshine of Love), which features the Sailor Scouts busting some moves and belting their hearts out in full Sailor Moon regalia.
The musical ran earlier this year in Tokyo from August 21-31 and in Osaka from September 5-7. Now, it is being released on DVD in Japan on January 28 for 7,800 yen (roughly $70). In addition to the DVD, the package contains a 28-page full-colore booklet, a special features disc with additional scenes, behind-the-scenes content, audio commentary from the five main actresses, and much more.
That’s all well and good, but where is my chorus line of dancing Tuxedo Masks?
