Momoiro Clover Z’s Opening Theme for “Sailor Moon Crystal” Is a Butt-Kicking Feminist Anthem
Fans of the reboot Sailor Moon Crystal will recognize Momoiro Clover Z’s new single Moon Pride as the opening theme that’s all about girls kicking butt and taking names. The fun feminist anthem celebrates girl power, friendship between women, and all the strong ladies who don’t need a man to rescue them because they can take care of themselves just fine.
For die-hard Sailor Moon fans, the music video also offers a glimpse of the new transformation sequences for Sailor Mars, Sailor Mercury, Sailor Venus, and Sailor Jupiter. It’s just as glamorous as the transformations from the original ‘90s anime, but the Sailor Guardians have gotten a slight CGI makeover for Crystal that focuses on their elemental powers of earth, air, fire, and water. Whether you enjoy fun pop songs that celebrate female friendships or you’re a Moonie who can’t wait to purchase the theme song for Sailor Moon Crystal, the music video for Moon Pride is a gorgeous homage to one of the world’s most famous animated television shows.
