Mercury… Pluto… WHY!?
The lovely @SailorStardust0 on twitter informed me earlier today of this news! Sailor Moon Crystal will in fact include the Black Moon Arc as a part of the 26 episodes - following the manga acts act-by-act. You can read a translation here of an excerpt from Kobayashi’s interview in the Sailor Moon Crystal Official Visual Book (Mook) translated by Nagisayuu.
I’ll be posting my own personal thoughts on all of this at a later time (busy with grad school stuff), but I definitely wanted everyone to know about this!!!Oh wow! I didn’t think it was possible for Crystal to include 2 arcs. I wonder if the Black Moon arc will get a different title though. :\
Looks like the rumors were true! Wow!
I’m not sure exactly how I feel about that yet (I wanted each arc to get its own season), but the thought of seeing Sailor Pluto, Neo-Queen Serenity, Chibiusa, and Crystal Tokyo is making me SUPER excited!!
