Sailor Moon Crystal, a second anime adaptation of Naoko Takeuchi’s original manga, has brought the iconic magical girl anime back to the forefront since 2014. After nearly a decade on the air, the new anime Sailor Moon Cosmos concludes the original saga of Usagi Tsukino (Serena to some English speakers) as she saves the universe as Sailor Moon.
Both movies, which premiered in Japanese theaters on June 9 (Part 1) and June 30 (Part 2), respectively, marked the series’ last chapter. When can we anticipate seeing the movies in the United States?
We can speculate rather well.
Sailor Moon Cosmos Us Release Date
This is great news for folks who enjoy lavishly spending their money on movies they cannot understand. The first and second parts of Sailor Moon Cosmos will be available on DVD and Blu-ray, in both standard and limited editions, on December 20, 2023, according to the official Sailor Moon website.
As with previous Japanese Sailor Moon releases, this one won’t have subtitles in English, either. While Region A Blu-ray discs from Japan are compatible with North American players, Region 2 DVDs from Japan are not. Below is a link to the Blu-ray’s teaser trailer.
The Plot of Sailor Moon Cosmos
“Sailor Moon Cosmos” is based on the “Stars” arc of the manga, which readers will no doubt remember. Usagi Tsukino, aka Sailor Moon, is just a regular schoolgirl in the story until her friends, the Sailor Guardians, and her boyfriend, Mamoru Chiba, aka Tuxedo Mask, come under attack by the villainous members of Shadow Galactica, acting on orders from Sailor Galaxia, one of Sailor Moon’s most infamous enemies.
There’s also a group of Sailor Guardians known as the Sailor Starlights who, when they transform, go by the name The Three Lights on Earth; Usagi isn’t sure whose side they’re on.
The story will serve as the climactic conclusion to the Shadow Galactica arc featured in the current crop of anime titles, which will culminate in the two-part “Sailor Moon Eternal” in 2021.
Sailor Galaxia plans to take over the cosmos using the valuable Sailor crystals, and the first half of “Sailor Moon Cosmos” follows Shadow Galactica as she tries to eliminate Sailor Moon’s companions and steal them. Sailor Moon’s intentions to save the universe and retaliate against the enemy for her terrible deeds are explored in the story’s second half.
When will Sailor Moon Cosmos be Available on US Netflix?
The release date and streamer for Sailor Moon Cosmos outside of Japan have yet to be determined. That happens all the time. The first international release of a new anime film or television series is usually in Japan. With the advent of streaming services like Crunchyroll, it now takes a fraction of the time it did in the past for audiences outside of Japan to gain access.
Anime is a popular genre, and Netflix has licensed a lot of it. It appears that Sailor Moon Cosmos will not have a simultaneous release in Japan and on Netflix, unlike the most recent Black Clover feature, Sword of the Wizard King.
Once the first and second sections of the film have premiered, we should have more information about the film’s distribution outside of Japan. Since Netflix already has the 2021 feature Sailor Moon: Eternal and the Sailor Moon Crystal series streaming, there is a significant probability that they will get the film as well.
