The release date for the new Sailor Moon Crystal series has been delayed time and time again, but with an official start date of July 5th, artists like DeviantArt's Isaiah Stephens are pumping out fan art in anticipation of the show.
Instead of traditional anime-style portraits, these gorgeous illustrations take a realistic approach to depicting the Sailor Scouts and the planets that they each represent. The series shows a regal 'Sailor Court,' with Sailor Moon in the form of Princess Serenity at its center, alongside Jupiter, Mars, Venus and Mercury. The ladies may not be ready for combat in their long dresses, but in this style, you could only imagine that their outfits and weapons post-transformation would be something truly fearsome.
