Only the first three season of the Sailor Moon anime from the 90s will be streamed as the upcoming Sailor Moon Eternal movie is based on the “Dead Moon” arc, the same arc that was adapted in the anime series’ fourth season.
While the 90s Sailor Moon anime will soon be released on YouTube for free, there’s no word on whether English subs will be available. There’s also no confirmation yet on whether the anime series will be available outside of Japan. Here’s hoping that the series does have English subs, after all, the Sailor Moon anime is easily one of the most beloved anime of all time worldwide.
