This set of wonderful original musicals penned by Junya Saiki with music by Akiko Kosaka and lyrics by Saiki and Kayoko Fuyumori has been under appreciated by the Sailor Moon fandom for far too long! This series stars none other than Usagi Tsukino, Soldier of Love and Justice as she goes on a journey with her friends, the Sailor Soldiers, to discover what it means to be a “perfect, flawless human being”, whether a “Lullaby” can solve loneliness and just what the “true mission of Light and Darkness” is. In the Dracul Series, Sailor Moon faces multiple groups of Undead enemies who form an unsteady alliance against God’s Humanity that rejected them. The Dracul series is full of wonderful songs from sweet duets like “Gondola Sweethearts” to 11 o’clock numbers like “We’ll Be the Last Victory”, villain numbers such as “Sonnet of Darkness” and numbers where the villains sing about goals that may not be so villainous after all like “Fateful Encounter ~ LIlith and Astarte”. Each of the Guardian Soldiers receives their own theme song for the first time as well, and of course, the Outer Soldiers are ever-reading with their powerful numbers like “Bundle the Hearts ~ Watchin’ On The Sight”.  In traditional Sailor Moon fashion, this Series explores themes of Jealousy, Loneliness, Dreams, Friendship, Love and Motherhood.  In this series we are introduced to a cast of wonderful, memorable villains like the enigmatic Lilith of Darkness whose goal is to build a world of equality between woman and man and human and spirit, Death Lamia, a vampiress who has found the feeling of blood in her body the closest thing to living for six hundred years, Bloody Dracul Vampir, a Dhampir who wishes for her heart to be thawed, and of course the infamous Sheba Shingetsu Astarte, also known as Sailor Astarte, tenth Sailor Soldier from behind the Sun. These characters and more are just waiting to be met. The Dracul Series is named for one of the principal characters, Count Dracul and Bloody Dracul Vampir, the mysterious Head Vampire from Wallachia, Transylvania and his daughter respectively and spans four musicals, the third being a revised edition of the second though we recommend watching both to explore all the characters and themes in this series.

In this revision of the previous musical, which retcons some major scenes to prepare for the Finale, the plot outline is essentially the same, however, the ending and fates of the characters is wildly altered. The story of Lilith and Astarte is moved into the background for the story of the Ultimate Enemy, Dark Cain to take full stage. We recommend both these musicals to be watched.

When her friends are threatened, Usagi surrenders but at what cost… The villain behind all the Dracul Series is revealed at last but who is it really? Dark Cain? Death Vulcan? In this enigma that spans 7,000 years, Sailor Moon must find a way to finally end the Final War of the Stars and Planets.
