Sailor Moon themed Manhole cover installation

It is common for famous anime and manga franchises to get homaged in Japan by having a manhole cover design. The time has finally come for “Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon” to have its own commemorative designs in the Minato area of Tokyo, which is the area the anime is set in!

There will be 5 different designs based on manga illustrations, and the background color represents each Inner Sailor Guardian. They are scheduled to be installed in March 2024.
