Earlier today, Viz Media announced several new cast members for Sailor Moon S‘s English dub. The series will add the following members:
Haruka Tenoh / Sailor Uranus: Erica Mendez
Michiru Kaioh / Sailor Neptune: Lauren Landa
Hotaru Tomoe / Sailor Saturn: Christine Marie Cabanos
Professor Tomoe: Keith Silverstein
This is Silverstein’s second role in the series. He also portrays Usagi’s father in Viz Media’s dub.
Sailor Moon S is the third series in the original Sailor Moon anime franchise. The title was directed by Kunihiko Ikuhara (Revolutionary Girl Utena, Penguindrum), and animated by Toei Animation. Sailor Moon S aired from March 1994 through February 1995, and contained 38 episodes.
Viz Media announced that they acquired the domestic rights to the entire run of the original Sailor Moon, as well as Sailor Moon Crystal last May. The company will release all 200 episodes, three feature films, and myriad specials in the franchise.
Viz Media will release Sailor Moon R‘s first set on DVD and Blu-Ray on July 14.
As of press time, the first 119 subtitled episodes (and 23 dubbed episodes) are available for free streaming on Neon Alley and Hulu.
Editor’s Note: It should be mentioned that this isn’t a comprehensive reveal. The cast for the Witches 5 still have yet to be announced.
Fhdjgkhdsgjdagh I cannot get over the Sailor Moon panel, let alone the outer senshi cast announcement:
Sailor Neptune/Michiru Kaiou - Lauren Landa Sailor Saturn/Hotaru Tomoe - Christine Marie Cabanos Sailor Uranus/Haruka Tenou - Erica Mendez (o_O!!!!!!!!!!!) Sailor Pluto/Setsuna Meiou - Veronica Taylor Professor Tomoe - Keith Silverstein
I CANNOT DESCRIBE MY REACTION WHEN THEY INTRODUCED ERICA MENDEZ AS SAILOR URANUS LIKE IT WAS TOTALLY UNEXPECTED AS WELL AS CHRISTINE AS SAILOR SATURN BUT STILL and Veronica Taylor was a bit of a surprise too, but Erica Mendez was the biggest. I’m very glad that a new VA like her is getting these hugeass roles! :3 And I have no idea who Lauren Landa is XDDD But yeah I WILL NEVER GET OVER IT
I’ll also never get over that Sailor Pluto (my favorite) didn’t make it to the con u_u;; She’s my favorite because she’s Scorpio, like me XD
And one more thing, I DEMAND FANART OF RYUKO AS SAILOR URANUS AND MAKO AS SAILOR SATURN
