The official Sailor Moon YouTube channel began streaming clean version of the second opening and ending theme sequences for the Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal: Season III television anime series on Friday.
Etsuko Yakushimaru performed the opening theme song "New Moon ni Aishite" (Fall In Love With The New Moon) for the first four episodes, and Mitsuko Horie took over to perform the same song in episode five. Momoiro Clover Z also sings an additional version of the opening song.
Chibiusa (as voiced by Misato Fukuen) sang the second ending theme song "Otome no Susume" (Maiden's Advice), also beginning with the fifth episode. Sailor Uranus (Junko Minagawa) and Sailor Neptune (Sayaka Ohara) performed the first ending theme, while Tuxedo Kamen (Kenji Nojima) sings the third ending theme song "Eien Dake ga Futari o Kakeru" (Only Eternity Brings the Two Together).
The third season, which features a new staff and focuses on the Death Busters arc (also called the Infinity arc), premiered on Tokyo MX on April 4 at 11:00 p.m., and then airs on Sun TV, TVQ Kyushu Broadcasting, TV Hokkaido, TV Aichi, and BS11.
Crunchyroll, Niconico, and Hulu are streaming the new season. The three services and others streamed the first two Sailor Moon Crystal seasons overseas as they debuted online in Japan. Viz Media licensed both seasons for release in North America. Viz Media will release the first season of Sailor Moon Crystal on DVD and DVD/Blu-ray combo pack on August 16.
