A Very Rare Sailor Moon R Promotional Video

We stumbled upon this rare gem today on YouTube! This appears to be a promotional spot for the Sailor Moon R series, and features Kotono Mitsuisihi (Sailor Moon), Aya Hisakawa (Sailor Mercury), Michie Tomizawa (Sailor Mars) , Emi Shinohara (Sailor Jupiter), and Rika Fukami (Sailor Venus). They are seen signing autographs and appearing at an event singing and voicing their characters! Most importantly, this video provides a glimpse at ~30s into what anime dubbing in Japan is like. The seiyuu stand in a very large, dreary-looking room with microphones in front of a screen with the cartoon. This is a huge contrast compared to pictures we've seen of how Optimum productions dubbed the episodes ! We learned from Roland Parliament years ago that usually sessions only had one or two VA's in there, sometimes more if they were needed.
