Sailor Moon Eternal part one is scheduled to be released on January 8
The first part of the Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal The Movie two-part anime film duology is scheduled to be released this Friday in Japan, and the skyline of Fukuoka in Japan's south is lighting up in the colors of the sailor guardians. The Fukuoka City Subway is also collaborating with the film and bringing the voice of Sailor Moon to all stations in the city.

Every night this week, Fukuoka Tower will light up in a different color for each of the sailor guardians, culminating with a full moon presentation on January 8, the day Sailor Moon Eternal releases in theaters in Japan. Each of the colors is as follows:
On the observation deck of the tower, visitors can also take a photo with their favorite sailor guardian (or all of them!) with the city of Fukuoka in the background.
The two Sailor Moon Eternal anime films continue to re-adapt the manga series from Naoko Takeuchi, which started with Sailor Moon Crystal, moving onto adapting the Dead Moon arc. Sailor Moon Eternal THE MOVIE Parts 1 and 2 are scheduled to be released in Japan on January 8 and February 11 respectively, with Chiaki Kon returning from season 3 of Sailor Moon Crystal to direct at Studio Deen and Toei Animation.
