Sailor Moon Crystal’s Trailer Has Been Released!

A few days ago Sailor Moon’s official Youtube page posted a trailer for the new Crystal anime! While giving us a quick peek at some animation and art, we also were finally treated to our first bits of voice acting!

 

 

Kotono Mitsuishi has returned to her role as our heroine, Usagi, and Luna’s new voice actress, Ryō Hirohashi,  makes a cameo as our narrator! Ryō has done many voice roles in the past, and some of her more well-known titles include voicing Sora Naegino in Kaleidostar, Konata Izumi in the Lucky Star drama CD’S and video games, and Kyō Fujibayashi in Clannad.

One more surprise was listed, though, we now know who will be voicing Tuxedo Mask! Kenji Nojima has the honor of playing the leading man, and has starred in popular anime like Tomoya Okazaki from the Clannad film, Pell from One Piece, and Keisaku Satou from Shakugan no Shana.

The text at the end of the trailer details the Niconico premiere set for July fifth, and states it will air the first and third Saturday of each month. It also mentions that Momoiro Clover Z is going to preform both the opening and ending theme song. Crystal’s shaping up to be quite the event this summer, since the trailer’s release even made it to news outlets such as the Huffington Post!
