Sailor Moon Art of Fukano Youichi

Senshi no Tsue by Fukano YouichiWhen fans of Sailor Moon think of art work from the anime, they think of the names: Tadano Kazuko, Hasegawa Shinya, or Ikuko Itoh. Many fans are familiar with the art work of Fukano Youichi but don’t realize it. This brilliant man illustrated many images of Sailor Moon which ended up on CD covers, toy boxes, Sera Myu pamphlets, and more. His illustrations were everywhere but many fans didn’t know they were drawn by him.

Fukano Youichi is very active in the recent years on Twitter under the username of @hoypoykoy. He has also been active in releasing many new artworks in the Sailor Moon doujinshi community, these last three years. Though they were released in extremely limited numbers and are hard to find, I took the time to hunt down each doujinshi piece. Not only do you get to see Fukano Youichi’s version of Eternal Sailor Moon (Fukano Moon), but also his new art style for the Outer Senshi.

"Senshi no Tsue" by Fukano Youichi

"Senshi no Tsue" is a doujinshi book published by Fukano Youichi in early 2012 at the Wonder Parlour Cafe in Japan. It was extremely limited in numbers and is very hard to find. In the book, Fukano Youichi discusses his work on Sailor Moon during the 90′s. He also drew little quick sketches of the senshi in maid outfits. I think "Senshi no Tsue" is a book Sailor Moon fans should definitely hire Miss Dream to translate. If anyone starts raising funds to do so, please contact me: I’ll throw in $20. Enjoy the scans everyone!

    They should’ve adopted that ESM design in the anime instead (I especially like its incorporating the princess dress design). : P

    Thx for this update. ^___^

    @ Rika-Chicchi – I really like the prototype version too! Its so beautiful! It makes me wonder how much the budget was slashed for the Sailor Stars season, for them to abandon such a beautiful concept. =) Thanks for commenting RC! <3

    @ Lucas – Thanks Lucas! Glad you enjoyed the scans. I love the prototype too. I wish there were more images of it.
