Official Sailor Moon Fan Club Expands Overseas
posted on by Eric Stimson
In recognition of Sailor Moon's broad international popularity, the official Sailor Moon fan club, Pretty Guardians2016-2017, is expanding overseas. The club was founded in July and caps its membership, yet it is launching a membership drive in Japan as well. Members gains access to club information (both online and in print), the twice-monthly radio show of Kotono Mitsuishi (Sailor Moon's voice actress), a secret Premium Bandai site for the Sailor Moon fan club, exclusive goods (like the artwork seen below), special contents on the official Sailor Moon app, and a raffle at performances of the Sailor Moon musical, Bishōjo Senshi Sailor Moon -Amour Eternal-. The entry fee is 5,500 yen ($54).
While the exact benefits of membership in the club's overseas branches hasn't been specified yet, it will "as far as possible, [deliver] the same service as the Japanese fan club." The countries/territories it seeks to expand to are:
- People's Republic of China
- Republic of China (Taiwan)
- Hong Kong
- New Zealand
- Puerto Rico
- South Korea
Overseas registration will begin on September 23 at this site. Japanese members receive the membership card and lip gloss seen below.
