Unreleased Songs, Covers, and Voice Actor Releases

“Kaze mo Sora mo Kitto” TV Slow Version (first Sailor Stars Ending)

The first six episodes of Sailor Stars, before the Sailor Starlights appeared,
featured a slower ballad version of the ending. Then for the rest of the
season a more upbeat version was used, and that is the version that has been
released on all the CDs. Here for download is the original, originally ripped from an AVI file by Thomas Prevete.

“Sayonara ha Dance no Ato ni” – by Baishou Chieko

The tune for Moonlight Densetsu was inspired by an older Japanese song of the 60′s called “Sayonara ha Dance no Ato ni” (roughly translated, “Goodbye at the End of the Dance”). Linked above is the original version, along with a salsa cover by Takahashi Mariko.

“Azusa Nigou” – by Kariudo

The song that played as Yuuichiro’s (Chad’s) theme in Sailor Moon S Episode 99 is performed by a 1970′s J-idol duo called “Kariudo". The song was originally released on as an EP record single and an updated version was released many years later as a http://www.otokichi.com/cgi-bin/en/detail.cgi?artist_id=1459&original_id=4814&target=%5bj%2dartist%5dk&start=0CD
single. The MP3 sounds a little different from the version in the episode (notably the chorus). The updated version of the song may have been the one used in the episode. Credits: information, links to the singles, and lyrics romanization provided by Izak. I don’t know any more about it, as someone sent me the MP3 long ago.

HISAKAWA Aya

Mizuno Ami’s seiyuu released her own rendition of Moonlight Densetsu on her 1997 album Marching
Aya
. The album’s theme was that of a school sports day, and each song was based on a certain part of the day (hence ‘The Finals’). Credits: information and song file provided by Tom Nichols.

OGATA Megumi (Sailor Uranus)

Tenoh Haruka’s voice actress released two unofficial Sailor Uranus songs which both sound very “Haruka”. Kaze ni Naru is a sound-alike to Initial U, the Sailor Stars single for Sailor Uranus/Haruka that Ogata Megumi didn’t sing. The other is Shiokaze ni Nosete, a softer love ballad. Megumi said this song is dedicated to a “green-haired girl”. She wrote the lyrics to both songs herself. Kaze ni Naru is available on the album MO. Shiokaze ni Nosete is available on both MO and Aitai (which also has Kaze ni Naritai). A live version of Shiokaze ni Nosete is on the album Live [em:ou] Concert Tour 1998. Credits: tracks and background information provided by Karen.

MINAGUCHI Yuko (Sailor Saturn)

These two songs were donated by Kourtney. Since Hotaru’s voice actress doesn’t sing in the Sailor Moon anime, these are a rare treat. Enjoy!

PARA PARA MAX

ISHIDA Yoko (Otome no Policy, Ai no Senshi, Suki to Itte) produced a series of Para Para MAX albums which remix popular anime songs to the driving beat of the “Para Para” dance craze. Her complete discography is listed on her official fan site Club Sweets. The Japanese albums can be purchased at CD Japan and the three U.S. editions (which have different track line-ups) from Right Stuf (vol 1, vol 2, vol 3) along with the Live in Concert DVD
