I'll miss the legendary Mitsuko Horie as Sailor Galaxia but Megumi Hayashibara is an icon herself and this is terrific casting for her if we have to have someone new. Nana Mizuki is also one of my favorite seiyuu and singers so I'm glad she's going to be Princess Kakyuu. I hope Mitsuko Horie will still have some role in Cosmos like maybe singing the theme songs again like she did in season three of Crystal. But I'm excited to see who they cast as the Sailor Animamates. I'm calling it now for Aoi Yuki as Sailor Iron Mouse.

I remember some people in the other thread talking about Megumi Hayashibara being a good possible cast for Galaxia. No clue if those people somehow knew beforehand but congrats, it came true!

I didn't know it beforehand, just always thought that Megumi would have been the great choice for Galaxia since of how she was important in 90s, but still only had that one role in one of the movies - Himeko Nayotake, which wasn't a very big role, honestly.

And designwise, Galaxia just seems like a character that could have Megumi's voice, IMO.

Anyway, amazing choice for such a villainess - 90s seiyu superstar for the villainess created in 90s.

Dang, they actually got Megumi Hayashibara as Galaxia! She'll be an amazing fit!

Also awesome to have Nana Mizuki. Wasn't sure if Kotono would still play Chibi-Chibi.

Can't wait for the castings for the Animamates!

Looper2 spoke it into existence! Shocked

Hayashibara getting a bigger role in Sailor Moon is a dream come true. I think she'll be an especially great fit for Galaxia's manga characterization.

Mitsuishi reprising Chibi Chibi isn't surprising, but I'm excited by what that means as a manga fan. Mizuki's also a nice get, but I kind of wish she had been a Starlight so we could've gotten a song, lol.

She should have been brought in much sooner for more songs.

If there's no vocal album planned after these films are out, it'll be as much of a waste as her casting in Dragon Ball Super Broly.
