Prepare the Glitter Cannons!

Sailor Moon R: The Movie red carpet in L.A. was a blast — literally! Here's our wrap up [VIDEO], including theaters and showtimes.

Last week VIZ Media hosted a special Sailor Moon R: The Movie premiere at the historic Ace Theater in downtown Los Angeles—the first time an anime has been shown in the beautifully restored movie palace!

This sold-out event helped celebrate the nationwide release of the movie's English dub, uncut and remastered in gorgeous high definition.

It was truly a night to remember as VIZ rolled out the red carpet (and flowers, flowers, flowers!). Everyone came dressed to the nines, with fabulous fancy dresses, stylish suits and, of course, tons of creative and inspired cosplay.

We also had nearly the ENTIRE English voice cast for the movie in attendance and on stage for a Q&A session, including Sailor Moon herself, Stephanie Sheh, who came out despite being in a cast for her broken ankle. (Thanks Stephanie!)
