In an official press release, the five ladies playing Sailor Moon (Satomi Okubo), Sailor Mercury (Miyabi Matsuura), Sailor Mars (Kanon Nanaki), Sailor Jupiter (Yu Takhashi), and Sailor Venus (Shiori Sakata) can be seen posing as the Sailor Senshi in their costumes.
In addition, actress Yuga Yamato will be playing the male Tuxedo Mask.
According to AnimeNewsNetwork, the "Sailor Moon" manga's Kodansha editor Fumio Osano announced the news of the musical revival, which will recount the anime's first arc: Sailor Scouts versus the Dark Kingdom.
The musical reboot will be produced, directed, and written by Takuya Hiramitsu, and will run from September 13 to 23 at Shibuya's AiiA Theater Tokyo. Hiramitsu is a popular sound director for anime series like "Gunslinger Girl" and "Yu-Gi-Oh!"
The stage musical is coming in the 20th anniversary of the original manga series created by Naoko Takeuchi. Fans are hoping the anime reboot will debut some time later this year, despite delays.
Tickets will go on sale August 17, although advance reservations are already underway through Kodansha's Nakayoshi Magazine.
