Following a few prototype displays at conventions such as SDCC 2013 this past summer, Bandai has rolled out official full-color images of its ever-expanding S.H. Figuarts Sailor Moon line on the Tamashi Nations site. Joining the previously-seen Sailor Moon and Sailor Mercury figures are Sailor Jupiter, Sailor Venus and Sailor Mars.

As one of the most popular manga and anime characters of all time, Naoko Takeuchi's Sailor Moon has naturally received scores of video games adaptations released across all manner of consoles over the years. The bad news? Not all of them made it to North America despite the fact that they star a team of magical teens who cut through evil with the same efficiency as most Power Rangers and X-Men lineups. So what's a fan to do when Sailor Moon RPGs, fighting games, arcade style side scrollers and other options don't make it across the Pacific? Well, make a Doom 2 mod, of course!
Action figure collectors following Bandai's S.H. Figuarts based on Naoko Takeuchi's Sailor Moon will soon be able to sing along DiC's animated series theme song roll call. As revealed at the Bluefin Distribution booth at San Diego Comic-Con, Sailor Jupiter will soon join Sailor Moon, Sailor Mars and Sailor Mercury. Can a Sailor Venus (or Pluto or Uranus or Neptune or Saturn or Chibi) be far behind?

If you're in Tokyo in September and have 6,800 yen ($68) to burn, you just might want to use that to see the brand-new, all-woman Sailor Moon stage musical opening Sept. 13. It'll recount the battles between the Sailor Senshi and the Dark Kingdom during its search for the Silver Crystal. The principal cast, personally picked by Sailor Moon manga creator Naoko Takeuchi, has taken a few photos in their costumes, and you have to admit they look solidly like their cartoon counterparts. See the full photo, plus one of Yūga Yamato as Tuxedo Mask, after the jump.

In honor of the 20th anniversary of Sailor Moon, Bandai's cosmetics line Creer Beaute announced the release of cosmetics inspired by Usagi Tsukino (aka Serena, if you grew up with the dubbed series). Creer Beaute's Miracle Romance Shining Moon Powder appears to be both a blush and an illuminating powder, and is encased in a compact that closely resembles Sailor Moon's Crystal Star Transformation Brooch. The compact also doubles as a necklace for those of you who want to channel your inner magical girl without having to sacrifice $100+ on vintage Sailor Moon toys on eBay. The compact is currently available for pre-order for ¥3980 (approximately $41) on Bandai, and will ship in Fall 2013.
Back when I was an impressionable teen, I used to watch a ton of Anime Music Videos. I assume they're still around (especially now that you don't have to spend all night downloading them on Usenet), but on the off chance that you're not familiar, the idea was that people would edit together scenes from anime to one of the popular tunes of the day.
