EDITOR'S NOTE: Due to reports circulating about this article, we want to reiterate that this is a news story related to Toei Animation's efforts in Japan. This campaign is not related to Crunchyroll. As the headline and body of the article state, these episodes will be streaming on Toei's Official Sailor Moon YouTube channel in Japan only. The headline has been updated to include the words "in Japan" for further clarity.




The official website for the two-part film Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal The Movie announced today that the first three original Sailor Moon TV anime series in the 1990s will be streamed on the Sailor Moon franchise's official YouTube channel for free from this Friday, April 24. This is part of the promotional project for the theatrical release of the film's first part that will open in Japan on September 11, 2020. Ten episodes from a total of the 127 episodes from the three series will be added each week.


The three TV anime series are Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon (46 episodes/1992-1993), Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon R (43 episodes/1993-1994), and Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon S (38 episodes/1994-1995). The three are chosen because the upcoming film is based on the fourth "Dead Moon" arc of Naoko Takeuchi's original Sailor Moon manga, which was adapted into the fourth TV anime series Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon SuperS (34 episodes/1995-1996).
