The best thing about the Japanese entertainment industry milking popular properties for all their worth is that fans get a chance to purchase all the new merchandise that inevitably accompanies a brand new release. Sailor Moon fans have been witnessing a Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon renaissance with the recent anime series Sailor Moon Crystal and there have been so many awesome Sailor Moon goods that you could be forgiven for thinking fans had run out of money. However, you would be wrong! It turns out fans are getting their wallets ready for some more heavy shopping in Shibuya.

In preparation for a new Sailor Moon musical titled Un Nouveau Voyage, which will run from September 18-27 in Tokyo, a new store is opening for a limited time in Shibuya. This shop will feature limited-edition merchandise from Naoko Takeuchi’s most famous work and will be located in the Tokyu Department Store Toyoko on the second floor of the West Building in Shibuya Station.

Sailor Moon fans can head to this store to purchase clutches, bath goods, cosmetics, stationary and capsule toys. The big draw for this store seems to be the special edition tote bags and T-shirts that will also be on sale which feature Sailor Moon standing in front of Shibuya Station. All the Sailor Moon fans living in Shibuya have really lucked out!

▼ Limited edition T-shirts are 3,000 yen (US $25.22) and tote bags are 2,000 yen ($16.81).

This special limited-time shop will only be open from Thursday, September 10 to Wednesday, September 23 and it will be your only chance to buy some of these pieces of merchandise, so fans in the area definitely won’t want to miss it. Those who are interested in seeing the new musical can catch it at the AiiA 2.5 Theater Tokyo from September 18 to 27 or in Osaka at the Sankei Hall Breeze from October 2 to 4.
