 The Chinese crowd cheered loudly as the curtain on the play was finally being lifted. Yu Takahashi, who plays the role of Sailor Jupiter admitted that she was happy of the fans’ enthusiasm and thanked them and said that the “Chinese people have brought a smile to my face”. Satomi Okubo, who plays Usagi Tsukino/ Sailor Moon meanwhile thanked the people of Shanghai and said that they have made her love Sailor Moon even more.

It seems that the moonies in China also have a lot of Moon Pride in them. The play will be held until January 18, 2015 at the Shanghai Theater Academy.
