Free Webinar to Analyze the History and Legacy of Sailor Moon

On Thursday, January 28, at 8 pm EST, The Japan Foundation, New York will hold the free YouTube webinar to analyze Sailor Moon from academic and professional perspectives.

Why is Sailor Moon such a hit when it first appeared, and why is it still so popular today? What led to Sailor Moon's rise outside of Japan, and what impact did it have on the generation that grew up with it?

Come join our panel discussion with Kumiko Saitō, Mari Morimoto, Samantha Close and Kathryn Hemmann as they explore the history and legacy of Sailor Moon, as well as the fandom and fan culture it helped create in the U.S.

We are also taking a character popularity poll! Please vote for your favorite character when you register.

This is a free event. Registrants will receive the link to the stream via email.
