The first all-female revival musical, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon: La Reconquista, debuted in September of 2013.

Satomi Ōkubo as Usagi Tsukino/Sailor Moon
Momoyo Koyama as Ami Mizuno/Sailor Mercury
Kanon Nanaki as Rei Hino/Sailor Mars
Yū Takahashi as Makoto Kino/Sailor Jupiter
Shiori Sakata as Minako Aino/Sailor Venus

Kumiko Saitō, Momoka Kodama, Eriko Aoyama, Ayaka Ida, Yuka Itō, Akino Konno, and Ayumi Nakaoka play various Droids.
The DVD for the second musical went on sale on Wednesday. Niconico's satellite studio will host a February 1 event with the cast in a talk show and a screening in Tokyo's Ikebukuro ward. Niconico will stream the event.
Naoko Takeuchi launched the original manga in Nakayoshi in 1992, and the hit anime premiered that same year. The manga inspired 27 earlier stage musical runs with over 800 performances between 1993 and 2005. Toei's new Sailor Moon Crystal anime series premiered in July, and the second season, the Black Moon arc, premiered this month.
