美少女戦士セーラームーン THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY MEMORIAL TRIBUTE:美少女戦士セーラームーン 25周年プロジェクト公式サイト

"Sailor Moon - THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY MEMORIAL TRIBUTE" has been announced!

This album is the follow-up to "Sailor Moon - The 20th Anniversary Memorial Tribute", released in 2014. The theme is "female statue of war."

Participating artists are "Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon R" ending theme "Otome no Policy" singer, Yoko Ishida, Etsuko Yakushimaru, LiSA, SNS new generation singer-songwriter Yuko Inoue, popular junior high school girls' band SILENT SIREN, punk band/idol group BiSH, Queen Bee, Lunar Session, and more. Please look forward to what kind of chemical reaction the famous songs of Sailor Moon and the unique personality of these artists will cause.

"Sailor Moon THE 25TH ANNIVERSARY MEMORIAL TRIBUTE" Album will be released on Wednesday, April 4, 2018.

I hope they get Tommy heavenly6 to do another cover (or do one as Tommy february6)!

It would be nice if they could do some covers for PGSM as PGSM has been completely ignored by the anniversary so fart. I don't know what they could possibly do for this new album since they already covered all the main classic anime songs in the previous album that fans care about for the 90s anime. If they wanted to be really creative, they could do covers of some of the original character image songs. But I agree with NJ that I thought the last anniversary tribute album was very under-whelming and there weren't that many songs on it that I cared for.

I just want them to announce a non-Japanese tribute album, featuring covers by Western artists. I'd love to listen to Britney, Ariana Grande, Janelle Monae, Kesha, Avril Lavigne, etc cover Sailor Moon songs.

Who'd sing which song?

Eww that Moon Revenge but also that Etsuko Yakushimaru song from Crystal is just painful. Eternal eternity also sound pretty poor...

Otome No Policy sounds great. Looks like it uses this instrumental from the Classic concert preview video

Moonlight Densetsu and Tuxedo Mirage by crystal cast sound great too (though i think they use MomoCloZ instrumentals from album 1)

The rest is rather mediocre

Im disappointed they used mostly same songs as previous album. Where's Moonlight Destiny or Watashi Tachi Ni Naritakute from the 90s anime? Where's Moon Pride from Crystal? Where's any song from PGSM? Why La Soldier from musicals again?

That's another thing, why did they re-release this song? It first came out 2 years ago after Crystal season 3 ended.


If they wanted to re-release old songs, they also should have added Momoiro Clover Z's version of Moon Revenge from the Moon Pride single, that way there wouldn't have been a need to produce the trash that IS on the CD. :dead:

Moonlight Densetsu, La Soldier and Otome no Policy sound amazing, but the rest are.... eh.

The Crystal versions of Moonlight Densetsu and Tuxedo Mirage are cute but I’ll be honest, they don’t really harmonize as well as Peach Hips do which is a shame.

It’s amazing to hear Yoko Ishida back on Otome no Policy. She still sounds fantastic.

What a disappointing, uninspired collection of more mediocre covers of the same songs as always. If they were going to basically turn out the same track list for this album, they could have at least had male vocalists do all the covers so it could mirror the first tribute album's all female vocalist line up. Mess.

Tribute albums that I would have preferred over this one:

- The cast of Crystal doing covers of their favorite ‘90s image songs.
- The cast of the ‘90s anime reunited and covering Crystal songs.
- The New Myu cast(s) covering Old Myu songs.
- A tribute to Takanori Arisawa by Yasuharu Takanashi (imagine the melodies of the ‘90s score but with Takanashi’s choral rock style).
- An album of new image songs for Crystal penned by Naoko Takeuchi.

Wow thats so weird....

Poor decisions all around but im still happy for Otome No Policy at least (few other ones might grow on me in full versions hopefully)

This album is a colossal failure. Every track ranges from subpar to outright horrendous. Moon Revenge, Sailor Stars Song, and Eternal Eternity are particularly dreadful. It's much worse than the 20th Anniversary one which wasn't that good to begin with. Yuck.

They should have asked Tommy heavenly6 to contribute another cover. Her cover of La Soldier was far and away the standout track of the first tribute album. I honestly don't know what they were thinking with this.

Did we even need another cover of “Kaze mo Sora mo Kitto”? Who’s actually checking for that song or even “Kakumei wa Night & Day (NyQuil remix)” for that matter?
