Sailor Moon Crystal made its début on Japanese streaming service NicoNico in July 2014. During its initial run, new episodes aired on the first and third Saturdays of each month. The show’s TV broadcast wrapped up earlier today, which was followed directly by the new season’s reveal.
In April, Toei’s European site updated with news of a second series. We reached out to Toei, and discovered that the news was a miscommunication at the time.
In July, the finale of Sailor Moon Crystal season 2 ended with a brief message that read “À bientôt” (“See you soon!”). Afterwards, the official Sailor Moon Twitter account updated, thanking fans for viewing and asking readers to keep an eye on the account for future developments.
