posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
The mail-order fashion site Super Groupies is collaborating with the Sailor Moon Crystal anime to create a series of super-cute, frilly umbrellas. The umbrellas come in five color variations to represent the Inner Sailor Guardians. Each one is topped with a bow and a planetary symbol charm. They retail for 5,800 yen (about US$48) and pre-orders open on April 19.
Super Groupies is also offering a sleek, black umbrella with a screen-printed image of the Silver Millennium. This version retails for 6,800 yen (US$58).
Also coming to stores in April is the seventh Blu-ray volume of the Sailor Moon Crystal series. It will go on sale on April 8. It includes episodes 13 and 14 with commentary by Usagi's voice actress Kotono Mitsuishi, Chibi-Usa's voice actress Misato Fukuen, director Munehisa Sakai, producer Yu Kaminoki, and the manga's original editor Fumio Osano. The special edition bundles a 24-page booklet, a Cutie Moon Rod charm, and a special box. The Blu-ray cover shows Princess Serenity surrounded by butterflies.
