On July 6, 2012 in the Japan Expo 2012, Paris, Momoiro Clover Z took part in a performance titled "Sailor Moon 20th Anniversary Stage Featuring Momoiro Clover Z". Dressed in outfits resembling the original Sailor Moon costumes, the group members carried out a choreographed performance to Moonlight Densetsu. Kanako Momota announced that Momoiro Clover Z would be performing the opening theme to the new Sailor Moon series.[3]

"MOON PRIDE" was first heard in the trailer for Sailor Moon Crystal that screened on June 5, in Sailor Moon Crystal trailer in youtube. In the following day, their official site confirmed the song as a new single is released on July 30.[1].

"MOON PRIDE" is composed by Revo (Sound Horizon) and the ending theme song "Gekkou", composed and arranged by Akiko Kosaka who has composed many 'Sailor Moon' songs like "Moon Revenge", "La Soldier", and "Tuxedo Mirage". The third song, Moon Revenge is a cover version of Peach Hip's song.[1]

Marty Friedman confirmed that he is the man behind the guitar parts in "MOON PRIDE"[4]. The first single photograph was released on the official site on June 30.[5]

On the advanced premiere screening event on June 30 in collaboration with ViVi magazine, the anime director Munehisa Sakai said that he chose Momoiro Clover Z for the single MOON PRIDE because they're admirable and energetic, the standpoints that match to Sailor Moon's characteristics.[6] Revo explained that the he used a complex harmony in the song to represent different colors in both Momoiro Clover Z and Sailor Moon, which normally doesn't fit in an idol song but it's all turned out splendid.[7]

On August 13, the live version of the music video is published on their youtube channel. This version used the footage from Momoclo Natsu no Baka Sawagi 2014 NISSAN STADIUM Taikai ~Toujinsai~ live concert.

MOON Pride
Anata no chikara ni naritai

Inazuma no you ni hageshiku dareka ga ai wo sakebu

Tatoe donna kurayami demo hitori ja nai yo ne?

Tada mamorareru dake no ka yowai sonzai ja nai wa

Kanashimi no nami ni yura re ikari no hiniyakarete mo

Moon Pride
あなたの力になりたい

涙は頬を伝い 瞳は紅く燃える
稲妻のように激しく 誰かが愛を叫ぶ
例えどんな 暗闇でも 一人じゃないよね?
私達を 照らす Moonlight

嗚呼 女の子にも譲れぬ矜持がある
それは 王子様に運命投げず
自らたたかう意志

Shiny Make-up 輝くよ 星空を集めて
ただ護られるだけの か弱い存在じゃないわ

哀しみの波に揺られ 怒りの火に灼かれても
稲妻のように眩く 永久の愛を誓う
例え今は 離れていても 一人じゃないよね?
私達を 繋ぐ Moonlight

嗚呼 女の子には無敵の武器がある
それは 弱さに寄添う眼差しと
全て受け入れる強さ

Shiny Make-up 煌くよ 星空に抱かれて
時空を超えた絆が 私に勇気をくれる

恋しくて 切なくて 泣きたくなるよ
逢いたくて 寂しくて 駆け出しそうな恋心 (ハート)
この広い宇宙で 何度生まれ変わっても
あなたに恋をする

Shiny Make-up 羽搏くよ 星空の彼方へ
罪が廻る世界でも 未来を信じられる

ーーだから

Shiny Make-up 戦うよ 星空を纏って
新しい伝説が 今ここから始まる
La La Pretty Guardian SAILOR MOON
