Sailor Moon Crystal Season 4 Split into Two-Part Film, Twitter Reacts

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

This year, at the 25th Aniversary 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:

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.
