Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal The Movie was released in two parts in Japan this year. It serves as a “fourth season” for Sailor Moon Crystal, a rebooted anime series which is closer to the manga than the original series of the 90s, much like Dragon Ball Kai was to the Dragon Ball manga.
Netflix has announced they are bringing the movies to their service, and it will be available worldwide on June 3rd. Ema Hirayama, Manager of Content Acquisition at Netflix commented on it with the words:
Like so many others around the world, I trace my love for anime back to watching Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon when I was a toddler – pictures of me in Usagi’s Bun Head have become a family treasure. It’s no surprise that these characters and tales about love and justice still touch the hearts of so many fans around the world. It’s a dream come true for all of us at Netflix to have ‘Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal The Movie’ join our expansive anime slate and to share this incredible story with fans around the world.
Sailor Moon was created by Naoko Takeuchi in the early 90s. It was adopted into an anime series, which together with Dragon Ball helped spread the popularity of anime and manga into the West. Sailor Moon is a so-called shojo manga, which means it’s primary audience is girls, and it’s probably the most popular and sold shojo franchise ever.
