Bell Media revealed on Tuesday that its streaming service Crave in Canada will add five seasons of the Sailor Moon animates on September 18. The announcement does not specify whether the episodes will be available with English dubbing or subtitles.
Crave describes the story of the anime:
Sailor Moon chronicles the magical action adventures of a teenage girl who transforms into the mighty guardian of love and justice, Sailor Moon. Meeting allies along the way who share similar destinies, Sailor Moon and her team of planetary Sailor Guardians fight to protect the universe from the forces of evil and total annihilation.
Friday marks the 25th anniversary of the original anime’s debut on Ytv release in Canada on August 28, 1995. Viz Media started airing all 200 episodes of the original Sailor Moon anime franchise on the Tubes TV streaming service in Canada in July 2016.
The next anime in the franchise, the Bishōjo Senshi Sailor Moon Eternal (Pretty Guardians Sailor Moon Eternal Le FILM) two-part animated film project, will debut with the first film in January. The first film was originally scheduled to open in Japan on September 11, but has been delayed until January 8, 2021 due to the spread of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Japan. The second film will open on February 11, 2021.
The film marks 25 years since the franchise last had a work screened in theaters in Japan. The two-part film project will replace a fourth season for Sailor Moon Crystal. The films will cover the ‘Dead Moon’ arc of Naoko Takeuchioriginal manga.
