September 22, 2003 :: Two New PGSM Promo Clips
There have been two additional Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon promo clips released. The first of the two new ones is a re-mix of a previous promo with some new clips. The second new promo features clips of Usagi watching a Sailor V news story, a cameo by Shingo (Usagi's brother), and a purple stuffed-animal Luna. You can see the new clips at this website: Sailor Moon Live. There are also new images of the characters in the live action series, including an image of the Senshi in their school uniforms (with Usagi holding the stuffed Luna), and image of Tuxedo Kamen, and an image of Sailor V. You can view the images at the following sites (or E-Mail me and I will send you a copy): Sailor Moon Live and Genvid.com.
September 22, 2003 :: Official CBC Site Updated
In related news, the official PGSM site has updated with new sections. The sections, in order, are : "Story,"
"Next," "Cast" "Diary," "Message Board" and "Information". The Cast page now sports "mouse-over" images that switch between the actresses and the senshi. The Diary page has a calendar and on every day a different actress writes a note (Moon on Monday, Mars on Tuesday, Mercury on Wednesday, Jupiter on Thursday, and Venus on Friday.) The Message Board serves two purposes: the first one is obviously as a Message Board, and the second is to send in Contest Entry forms. The Contest can be found on the "Information" page. The current question is "In Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon episode one, Sailor Moon used what skill to defeat the enemy?" The prizes are: 1)a "moonlight wand" and a poster or 2)a Luna doll and a poster. However, it is unlikely that the company will accept contest submitions from people outside of Japan.
