Sailor Moon’s sisters-in-arms show up in two new designs perfect for anime fans who’re ready to tie the knot.
When the Sailor Moon anime began airing in the early ‘90s, its depictions of ever-lasting romance must have seemed like impossibly far-off, grown-up stuff to its target audience of little girls. But 20-plus years later, many of those little girls are now old enough to have found someone to share their lives with, leading to a line of Sailor Moon wedding registration certificates in Japan.
Previous versions have been decorated with images of the titular heroine alone or accompanied by her beloved Tuxedo Mask/Prince Endymion/Mamoru Chiba. But the series’ charismatic cast is far larger than its principal couple, and so two new Sailor Moon wedding registration forms now feature the other Sailor Senshi.
For old-school fans of the anime’s earliest arc, the Moon Prism Power design has the five Inner Senshi, Sailors Moon, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Venus, silhouetted in their image colors in front of the crescent moon. While the left column of boxes is for the newlyweds to fill in their personal information, the right column is where the witnesses sign, near the Sailors’ individual insignia.
On the other hand, if you’re such a superfan that nothing less than the full array of all 10 Sailor Senshi will do for the paperwork that marks the beginning of your married life, the Love Message design also adds in Sailors Chibi Moon, Pluto, Neptune, Uranus, and Saturn.
Both forms are sold in a bundle that includes two official, legally binding marriage registration forms, plus a larger commemorative certificate for you and your spouse to keep and a clear standing case to display it in. While the artwork is the same, the commemorative certificates also include a space for you and your beloved to write romantic vows to one another, and are printed with pearlescent ink.

Oddly enough, Sailor Moon’s one true love, Tuxedo Mask, is nowhere to be found on either form, although the presence of Uranus and Neptune on the Love Message design means there’s at least one happy couple in attendance.
Both sets can be ordered here through wedding registration form specialist Konin Todoke Sakusho and are priced at 3,000 yen (US$27).
