Sailor Moon fans have something to be excited for as a special Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon exhibition is coming to Tokyo this summer. A little confusingly, the exhibition has been named the Sailor Moon Museum, and will take place at Roppongi Museum between July 1 and December 30. The exhibition is just one of the many events being held to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the release of the first Sailor Moon manga by Naoko Takeuchi.

There’ll be lots to see at the museum including an immersive multimedia theatre, holographic displays of original drawings and famous scenes, and a collection of more than 600 Sailor Moon items including figurines, game consoles and even costumes from stage adaptation musicals. In terms of the sheer number of exhibits, it’s set to be the largest Sailor Moon exhibition ever in Japan.

The museum will also feature an additional rotating exhibition of original drawings and content from a different parts of the Sailor Moon series which will be showcased over three different periods: 

July 1-September 4: The first instalment will exhibit original drawings from the first and second seasons of the series.
