Christmas was over a week ago now, but the festivities can’t stop until we release a Christmas episode of some kind so, here it is!
Sully takes us on a holly jolly journey into the second Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon feature film, Hearts on Ice, or just Sailor Moon S: The Movie. He’s joined by fellow guardians, Will from Mid Shelf Gaming, and first-time guest, Anna from the OSMCast!, another excellent podcast you should listen to.
They discuss the interesting release history of the film, the life of living legend Megumi Hayashibara, the fact that this is only kind-of a Christmas movie, why cats shouldn’t eat candy, and how this film connects to Anna’s job?!
Stuff your stockings with this first episode of Third Impact Anime for 2021, and we sure hope this year is infinitely better than the last one.
Sailor Moon S: The Movie is available on DVD and blu-ray from VIZ Media! Purchase Sailor Moon S: The Movie to stream on YouTube!
