2017 marks a very special milestone for the ever-popular "Sailor Moon" franchise - it is the anime series' 25th anniversary!
To commemorate the occasion, a classical music concert "Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Classic Concert" will be held at Tokyo's Art Theater Concert Hall on August 2 and 3. While many famous soundtracks of Japanese works - such as Studio Ghibli films, Final Fantasy, and Super Mario - have been given the classical music treatment over the years, this will mark the first time that "Sailor Moon" music will be played by a live orchestra. Fans can expect music taken from across "Sailor Moon's" five anime series, movies, and live-action musicals.
As a cherry on top, performing the concert is none other than the Tokyo Phiharmonic Orchestra, one of Japan's oldest orchestras, and at the helm is renowned conductor Makoto Yoshida.
