Furthermore, the voice actors of Sailor Starlights also commented about their performance and the series.
Here’s what Marina Inoue (Sailor Starfighter/Hikari Hoshino) had to say:
My childhood ambition was at last realized. I used to play Sailor Moon with my friends when I was younger, but I still find it hard to believe that I get to turn into a Sailor Warrior and get to know Usagi-chan. I want to relive those moments myself.
I used to think while reading the manga especially about Hoshino that Don’t stand between Usagi-chan and Mamo-chan. But when I grew up, that feeling was both terrible and lovely. I wondered how to make Hoshino look cool during the recording, I remembered the original image of the character and acted with a bit of conflict in my head..
Finally, a movie adaptation of Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon‘s” last chapter will be released. I’m excited to watch the finished film in cinemas.
And this is what Saori Hayami (Sailor Star Maker/Daiko) had to say:
As a child I used to eagerly wait to watch Sailor Moon every week and now to think that I am actually part of the show, feels like a dream. When I read the script, I was astonished by the Sailor warriors who never stop moving ahead even in the harsh and lonely battles. The story is amazing as we all know however the dialogues too contain the power to tear me up. I was conscious of the calm and mature nature of the Starlights and the three singing together is the highlight of the series so please pay attention to it. And do watch the final movie in the theatres
Meanwhile, Sakura (Sailor Star Healer / Yaten Hikari) had to say this:
In Sailor Moon? and that too as a Sailor Soldier? My Life is amazing right now. It feels like a dream however I understand the pressure at the same time. I studied the character all night and a wonderful new world opened up.
Yaten is a type B (blood type) Aquarius like me, she seems to live freely and has strong feelings toward what is important to her. She has a unique personality and is easy to lean on as a person. I enjoyed playing her including the confidence of the character that I don’t have. The final battle is very intense. I was very nervous, but Yaten, who is always aloof, saved me and got me through the recording. Anyway, as Three Starlights, we are looking forward to seeing you at the theater.
