VIZ Media delivers a special treat to U.S. anime fans as it announces the digital premiere of the latest season of Sailor Moon Crystal on April 4, 2016 on both VIZ Media’s streaming platform and Hulu.

The first subtitled episode of the brand new season will launch on VIZ Media’s anime streaming platform and will stream on Hulu in a special digital simulcast that will take place on the same day as its broadcast premiere in Japan.

But peace is short-lived as a new enemy emerges from the shadows, as well as the appearance of two mysterious Sailor Guardians.
