The long wait is over for Sailor Moon fans! Sailor Moon Crystal Season 3 will start in Japan Monday, April 4th, 11:00 p.m. US-based fans should not be sad about missing the much-awaited debut because they can watch it the same day as its Japanese premiere, here’s how.
Viz Media announced that it will stream Sailor Moon Crystal Season 3 new episode beginning Monday on its own streaming platform as well as Hulu. The new episodes with English subtitles will stream every Monday on a weekly basis, not the bi-weekly schedule of the previous seasons. Expect to see after several weeks the English-dubbed episodes.
The Season 3 storyline will revolve on the battle between the Sailor Senshi and the Deathbusters whose goal is total annihilation with the help of the Messiah of Silence. As reported earlier - Sailor Uranus, Sailor Neptune, and Sailor Saturn will make their debut appearance on Sailor Moon Crystal Season 3.
Judging from the art style and animation quality of the Season 3 trailers released last week, the creative team behind the re-imagined series have taken seriously fans’ complaints on the first two seasons, wrote iDigitalTimes.
