Twitter Reacts: Sailor Moon Crystal S4 Split Into Two-Part Film

Every June 30th, Sailor Moon fans wish a Happy Birthday to Usagi Tsukino!

This year, at the 25th Anniversary Usagi Birthday event, Toei made a big splash with the following announcement:

Sailor Moon Crystal Season 4 update! The new anime season, the “Dead Moon” arc, will instead be broken up into a two-part film. Chiaki Kon will be returning as the director for these films.

Here is the original press release in Japanese:

[2017/06/30]「美少女戦士セーラームーン Crystal」第 4 期<デッド・ムーン編>新情報が発表!
「美少女戦士セーラームーン Crystal」第 4 期<デッド・ムーン編>

本日開催された”25 th Anniversary うさぎ BIRTHDAY イベント”にて「美少女戦士セーラームーン Crystal」第 4 期<デッド・ムーン編>新情報が発表となりました。
「美少女戦士セーラームーン Crystal」第4期<デッド・ムーン編>は劇場公開前後編での予定。そして監督は「美少女戦士セーラームーンCrystal」第3期<デス・バスターズ編>と同様に今千秋監督が担当する事になりました。その他の情報は追ってお知らせいたしますので、楽しみにしていてくださいね。

With no official art or reference to a release date, Moonies could be waiting a while for the next update.

Twitter, on the other hand, is full of mixed and amusing reactions to this strange announcement.
