Sailor Moon is one of those shows that anyone over the age of 20 (and I hope for the sake of humanity, those younger as well) has watched, or, at least heard of.

While the version shown in Japan is slightly different from the one known and loved in western countries, the characters and story line are very similar. There are television shows, musical plays, radio shows, and a manga series which still continue today, and the fan base has become larger and more loyal than ever before.

Just to further highlight the popularity of Sailor Moon, a study discovered that 3,335,000 websites exist which are dedicated to this series, while only 491,000 exist for the popular Disney icon Mickey Mouse.

Anyway… the real reason you’re here is to learn a little more about the Sailor Moon fan club.

The club goes by the name ‘Pretty Guardians 2016-2017,’ and yep, that’s not a typo. While it was traditionally reserved only for those living in Japan, as of September 23rd, it opened its doors to a small number of lucky internationals.

The club membership, which costs around $60, entitles members to receive special news and updates from the Sailor Moon franchise and an invitation to listen to the fortnightly radio show hosted by Sailor Moon’s voice actress, Kotono Mitsuishi. Members are also given the privilege of being first invited to purchase limited items from the Sailor Moon store and tickets to see the Bishojo Senshi Sailor Moon Amour Eternal, a musical show located in Japan. Members also receive a membership card and free “make-up lip gloss.”

While the club has no official meeting days, scheduled activities, or Sailor Moon games, members from various cities have said they organize their own gatherings with like-minded individuals.
