  • Sailor Moon Nail Oil Set Released to Promote the Upcoming ‘Sailor Moon Eternal’ Movie

    28.March.2020 | ANIME&GAME / FASHION

    Bandai has developed a new Super Sailor Moon and Super Sailor Chibi Moon “Fragrance Nail Oil Set” on its online store Premium Bandai as part of its cosmetics brand Miracle Romance. Released on March 26, the set is inspired by the upcoming animated film Sailor Moon Eternal which will be released in September this year.

    Miracle Romance Fragrance Oil Nail Set – ¥4,400 (Tax Included) *Shipping & handling fees not included

    Both nail oils are made in the image of Super Sailor Moon and Super Sailor Chibi Moon who will appear in the upcoming Sailor Moon Eternal movie.

    The Super Sailor Moon nail oil has an “Eternal Lemon” fragrance which is locked away inside its gorgeous bottle featuring yellow and blue coloured nail oilーthe same colours as the character’s skirt.

    Super Sailor Chibi Moon’s skirt is yellow and pink, as represented by the colour nail oil for this bottle. It has a cute and sweet-smelling fragrance, and contains three ingredients that are great for the skin: jojoba oil, rose hip, and grapeseed oil. The oil can be used on the skin, where it’s not sticky and is soaked up easily, as well as the nails and cuticles to moisturise them, leaving them nice and smooth.

    The bottles are crafted with the finest details that showcase motifs of their respective characters. They are chic and made from glass which allow for the oils’ colours to glisten through. They are also both branded with the sentence “Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal.”

     

    These aren’t just made to look cuteーthey are expertly-made cosmetics for those who want to be a Pretty Guardian too.

  • SHINING MOON TOKYO: Sailor Moon Show Restaurant to Open in Azabu-Juban

    15.August.2019 | ANIME&GAME / FEATURES / FOOD

    Azabu-Juban is a district in Tokyo and considered a holy ground amongst Sailor Moon fans as it is where the Sailors reside in the series. That fact is about to be set in stone as the all-new show restaurant SHINING MOON TOKYO is set to open in Azabu-Juban on August 15.

     

    The building used for the restaurant was actually built in the same year when the Sailor Moon manga began serialisation. It’s also located in Joule A, the same place where Jewelry OSA-P appears in the series.

    Since its release in 1991, the Sailor Moon manga series has been translated into 17 languages, and the anime series has made it to 40 countries worldwide. It has even spawned musicals which have been taken around the world. Now, fans can look forward to enjoying their favourite series in a new form with the opening of SHINING MOON TOKYO.

    The restaurant’s stage show is being produced by Nelke Planning who has been involved in many of the franchise’s musicals. It will make use of stunning LED visuals and lightning and will feature music and dancing.

    At the entrance to the restaurant is a gorgeous golden moon which you can sit on and pose like one of the Sailors.

    A little further in is the stage, whose pink aesthetic and decorations have received the official stamp of approval from Sailor Moon author Naoko Takeuchi. The distance between the stage and audience is short, allowing for an up-close, immersive and thrilling spectator experience.

    Concealed behind glass display cases are gorgeous and glittery Sailor Moon outfits.

    Our five Sailors all feature in the stage show who we get to see in their everyday lives, during their transformations, and in battle scenes. The manga will be brought to life before the crowd’s eyes.

    Most of shows will be non-verbal, meaning that people can enjoy them without understanding Japanese. Many different stories will be told on stage―you can find out which ones they will be showing while at the restaurant.

     

    The restaurant will feature a kawaii menu with original drinks and dishes you can’t get anywhere else.

    Sailor Planet Sushi Balls – ¥1,800 (Tax Included)

    This tropical-looking sushi platter is made up of five different sushi balls including Japanese halfbeak, Okinawan spinach, salted salmon roe, snow crab, and conger eel. The vinegar used in the dish has antioxidants in it which will protect your body like a Guardian Sailor!

    Tsukino Family Classic! Rabbit Curry – ¥1,800 (Tax Included)

    The rice in this adorable dish is made into the shape of a rabbit, which in Japanese is usagi―and is also the name of our titular heroine! It contains fragrant spices which are sure to warm your body and healthy herbs to soothe fatigue.

    SHINING MOON TOKYO Roll Cake – ¥1,500 (Tax Included)

    For dessert, look forward to a gorgeous strawberry roll cake topped with fresh cream and cherries. If you like the sound of lots of flavours dancing in your mouth at once, then we recommend this one to you!
