I AM SOBBING
Hello American Sailor Moon fans, it’s Naoko Takeuchi. Thank you for all the support you’ve given Sailor Moon!
It makes me very happy that so many people are caring for my precious baby, Sailor Moon, after she has crossed the sea to America. I’ve seen pictures of American fans cosplaying as Sailor Moon characters and heard that all of you are collecting lots of manga and merchandise, and it makes me happy and moves me deeply that Sailor Moon and I have received so much love, even in another country.
This is the 20th Anniversary of Sailor Moon, and there are lots of plans I’m sure you will enjoy.
First, for the Thanksgiving Day season on Nov 20, 2012 there will be a Sailor Moon box set, and also an art book will be released simultaneously worldwide in 2013. I’m sure they will both be wonderful. I know we’ll continue to come up with even more fun things in the future. Please look forward to them!
editing to add: the photos were taken at NYCC, the source is glompkitty aka ghoulkitty and I just reblogged and transcribed so it’d be easier to read the note.
an artbook! in the US! More exciting than the boxset tbh
