Vancouver fans will be able to meet Cristina Vee, the voice of Sailor Mars in the ViZ Media English dubs of Sailor Moon and Sailor Moon Crystal this August at Anime Revolution.
This year’s Anime Revolution will be August 5th-7th at the Vancouver Convention and Exhibition Centre at 999 Canada Place in the east wing. If you’re interested in attending, you can purchase tickets in advance here. Single day passes are $50-$60 at the door, and standard weekend passes are currently discounted to $69.95 each (sponsor and premium passes are also available).
If we hear confirmation of any other Sailor Moon at Anime Revolution, we will be sure to let you know!
This year we will have Jennifer Cihi, the original singing voice for Sailor Moon in the DiC/Cloverway dubs. She even recorded a special message for the fans!
Jennifer will be available for autographs, a Q&A, and a live concert! It’s going to be a lot of fun, don’t miss this rare appearance in Toronto.
We will also be having the wonderful Tony Daniels return as a voice actor guest. Tony’s key roles in the original English dub included Jedite, Wiseman, and baby Jordan. We will have a video message from him for you soon as well!
Tony will be available for autographs, Q&A, and photo ops. He doesn’t venture to Toronto events often, so this is a great time to meet him.
We also have four fantastic cosplay guests! These beautiful ladies will be hosting panels about how to make a sailor fuku, makeup for cosplay, and even wig styling!
And for the first time we will also be having a real Masquerade!
Our cosplay guests of honour will be judging cosplay entries in multiple categories on a point system. We will be selecting up to three winners (depending on the number of entrants) who will receive awesome prizes. All costume levels and ages are welcome. And last but not least, our master of ceremonies for the Masquerade is the fabulous Bear Sailor Moon.
We are currently in our pre-registration period, where tickets are $20 each. At the door, tickets will be $25 each. We also have discounts for children. Convention attendees will receive discounted parking at the Science Centre and, if you would also like to check out the exhibits, you will be able to purchase discounted admission to the exhibits as well.
Stay tuned for more updates! We will be announcing additional guests and providing more details about panels and activities leading up to the event. It’s gearing up to be a really fun event and I hope that if you can make it you will venture over to the Science Centre on July 9th.
Just released is the Japanese trailer for the upcoming arc of Sailor Moon Crystal:
According to the official website, the show will be premiering Monday, April 4th on TOKYO MX and air weekly on Mondays. On Tuesdays, it will air on San TV and BS11; Fridays on TVQ Kyushu; and Sundays on Television Hokkaido and TV Aichi.
The new theme song, “In Love with the New Moon” is sung by Etsuko Yakushimaru. The new ending theme, “Eternal Eternity,” is sung by Sailors Uranus (Junko Minagawa) and Neptune (Sayaka Ohara).
Also, since it is Sailor Neptune’s birthday today, there is a Twitter event where they released a special image of Michiru to celebrate her birthday after 1000 retweets of the announcement of the trailer on the Sailor Moon 20th official account.
Although Tracey Hoyt (Rini #1) was unable to attend the Sailor Moon Celebration in Toronto due to a previous commitment, she has sent in some details about a couple of appearances that fans might be interested in.
Here’s what she had to say about Sailor Moon fandom:
It still amazes me that Sailor Moon is still having such a lasting, positive impact. It means a lot.
She also wanted me to let you all know that Rini says:
Tracey said that she is proud to be in the very funny, dark Canadian film Guidance as Brenda (which premiered at TIFF in 2014). This film is about a former child star who fabricates credentials to become a high school guidance counsellor. Despite giving terrible advice, he becomes popular with the students.
Here’s the trailer (note that it includes lewd content and is not appropriate for all audiences, Tracey can be seen around 0:21 and 0:53)
Tracey is also proud to be part of the filmLen and Company as Mrs. Pickett, which premiered at TIFF this year. The film is about a successful music producer who quits the industry and exiles himself, but his estranged son and a pop star he’s created come looking for answers (description from IMDb). I have not found a trailer for this one, but the reviews are generally quite positive.
Tracey is also active as a theatre actor, so you can look out for her on the stage in the Toronto area as well.
If you would like to follow Tracey on Twitter for more frequent updates from her, you can check out @PirateVoiceTo (her voice-over teaching account) or @facevaluewest (her current acting account).
As you may know, Jill Frappier (Luna) creates a variety of pottery items under the brand name Jill’s Objets. Her pottery is now available at the 846 College street location of the Arts Market in Toronto. The Arts Market is a group of gift shops showcasing items created by local artists. The College street location is open Wednesday to Friday 12pm-7pm and on weekends from 11am-7pm.
If you are in or near Toronto and would like to check out Jill’s variety of pottery, that is a great place to see and purchase her pottery any time of year.
Here is a preview of some of the items you will find in the store:
Also, for those who had attended this year’s Sailor Moon Celebration in Toronto, you might have witnessed Jill’s dance moves in our video game area! We will post a video clip of Jill dancing to a game with some of the attendees soon, on our Youtube channel. We could definitely see her zumba skills in action.
Fans may also be interested in keeping an eye out for the next Assassin’s Creed video game. Jill participated in motion capture as a character for the game back in August, and she said she had a great time.
We will be keeping an eye out for more convention appearances as well, as Jill Frappier and Ron Rubin are interested in appearing together at more shows to meet the fans in future.
I will have another voice actor update for you as well soon.
