[Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal] Black Moon Arc

Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal Black Moon Arc

Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal: Black Moon Arc aired on 17 January 2015!

Sailor Moon Crystal Act 14 is the start of the series’s second arc: Black Moon. This is equivalent to the 90s anime’s second season: Sailor Moon R. The Doom Tree Arc did not exist in the manga (it is exclusive to the 90s anime storyline) so it will be skipped in Sailor Moon Crystal. Following closely to its manga source, it will introduce Chibiusa as Sailor Chibi Moon and Sailor Pluto!

    well I’m a fans of your comic, just a thought for LINE user like me, is it possible someday we can buy your sailormoon chibi charater in LINE sticker shop, wishing so much :D

    Does this mean SM Crystal is skipping the Doom Tree arc and just heading to the… I don’t remember what its called… toddler from the future arc?

    • Chibi Jennifer January 17, 2015 at 9:35 am #

      Yup. Sailor Moon Crystal follows the manga storyline which goes straight to the Black Moon Arc with Chibiusa~ The Doom Tree Arc only appears in the 90s anime version, which was essentially a filler arc waiting for the manga to catch up.

    And I already dislike the girl with pink hair.

    SO EXITED I know I’m the only person here. That didn’t watch the 90s anime but I loved sailor moon when I saw it

    • Chibi Jennifer January 8, 2015 at 7:40 am #

      Oh wow, that is pretty rare I think! Glad you’re enjoying Crystal :D

  9. Sarah January 2, 2015 at 10:00 am #

    I can’t believe it’s going to be so soon!!

  10. Natalie January 2, 2015 at 9:57 am #

    Here’s hoping they give Mars more of a personality than just saying she feels an evil presence… Which is most of the time.

    That’s my birthday! Woop woop!

  12. Chelsea January 2, 2015 at 9:56 am #

    Lol at chibiusa. Her face is perfect here.

  13. pikachu jigglypuff January 1, 2015 at 4:45 am #

    Jumping around my room in excitement! I just can’t wait! Wait, Sailor Moon got her tiara back? So looking forward to this! XD

    They’re doing this arc too? hmmm I saw a screencap of Pluto. Sadly they still made her white. They tried to make her tan but it failed bad. So I WAS excited but not anymore. I do look forward to seeing a screncap of Wicked Lady though.

    • Chibi Jennifer December 31, 2014 at 9:09 am #

      Yup.. the Black Moon Arc starts from Act 14~ have you seen the trailer too? Pluto sounds cool though!

      • chaosinuyasha December 31, 2014 at 10:21 am #

        -shrugs- I’ll check it out but her skin still irks me :(

        • Serginho January 3, 2015 at 3:30 pm #

          I guess that the wrong color of her skin is one more of those mistakes that will be corrected later, like the color of Queen Serenity’s hair in the opening (I hope so…)

          • Chibi Jennifer January 4, 2015 at 5:13 pm #

            Her skin tone looks slightly darker than the others but I assume it should be a lot more tan?

    • FlyingPrincess January 17, 2015 at 9:31 am #

      What are you talking about? She looks tan to me.

      • chaosinuyasha January 17, 2015 at 9:32 am #

        If she is that’s the lightest tan I’ve ever seem. I’m an indoors shut in type yet my arms are darker than hers (somehow).

    Oh the nostalgia… xD I hope we can see Ayakashi Sisters one more time, though I doubt they’ll get much character development this time around.

    Can’t wait to see more of Setsuna hahaha for some reason she becomes a rather funny character in my head due to her behaviours in your comics XD I can never look at her as the serious individual anymore lol XDD but that just makes me love her more ! Still second to Hotaru, though ! ^^

    Well, here’s hoping the series will have a lot of improvements although I heard that Usagi’s not getting new sequence for her Moon Crystal Power transformation or something along that line (correct me if I’m mistaken tho), which frankly kinda bums me out a little because I’ve always liked the transformation sequences in the original :(

    • Chibi Jennifer December 30, 2014 at 5:05 pm #

      Ah… I love the Ayakashi Sisters!! But yeah.. I have feeling they won’t have a big role like they did in the 90s anime :( They weren’t in the Sailor Moon Musicals either which is a shame.. still be exciting to see them in a new style :D

      lol..poor pluto. XDDD I ruined her cool serious image XD

      I hope she does get a new sequence.. I’d be pretty disappointed if it was kept the same too >.< At least.. a different soundtrack? I kind of doubt it since it wasn’t in the Sailor Moon Crystal OST…

      • V_Lix December 30, 2014 at 5:26 pm #

        Yeah, and I like the Saphir and Petz moments in the original, too. But still looking forward to seeing them as well haha..

        Or maybe same soundtrack, different sequence ? lol I’m still hoping that she gets new animation, because in the 90s that’s kinda how I determined that Sailor Moon was getting stronger each season hahaha

        • Chibi Jennifer December 30, 2014 at 6:18 pm #

          Guess we’ll find out soon enough ^^” We already know the character intros will be the same… just swapped out the compact brooch for a new one XD Her outfit from classic to R doesn’t seem to change too much so I’m actually not expecting a new henshin

  16. ilovepinkhair December 30, 2014 at 5:00 pm #

    ^^ I’m excited now, I can wait to see chibiusa. She is my favorite senshi <3 :) Adorable Artwork <3

  17. SqueakyMcBeal December 30, 2014 at 3:51 pm #

    Wheeeeeeeeeeee! I can’t wait! This is very spectacular by the way!

    • Chibi Jennifer December 30, 2014 at 4:07 pm #

      Thank you, glad you like it ^^

    I’m so excited, I love Chibi-Usa! Cute little chibis here too :)

  19. OginZ December 30, 2014 at 3:48 pm #

    Looks great! ^.^ I really hope for improvement in the next arc :D.

    • Chibi Jennifer December 30, 2014 at 4:08 pm #

      Thanks! I hope so too :D The story follows the manga pretty closely so the story should be more interesting..

  20. Mikey186 December 30, 2014 at 3:48 pm #

    So ‘SUPERCALAFREAKINAWESOME’! I can’t wait for the 2nd arc. Think the series will make it into Eternal Sailor Moon?

    • Chibi Jennifer December 30, 2014 at 4:10 pm #

      I hope so! It really depends if the show is successful or not, we can only hope! :)

      • Mikey186 December 30, 2014 at 4:11 pm #

        If it really is, darling, the series really deserve a movie!
