Which came first? Anime La Soldier or Musical La Soldier?
The Japanese song, La Soldier was first heard in the first Sailor Moon Musical which performed from the 11th to the 29th of August 1993.
It was written for the musicals and was the first song to be sung on stage. It proved so popular that it was then sung in every Sailor Moon Musical since.
Seven months later on the 5th of March 1994, the anime episode, "Final Battle Between Light and Darkness! Pledging our Love to the Future" (called "Final Battle" in the English dub) aired on Japanese TV and in it, during the battle with Wiseman, the song La Soldier was used. This version was sung by Moon Lips, a group consisting of performers who originally sang the song in the first musical, Anza Ooyama, Ayako Morino, Misako Kotani, Kanoko and Nana Suzuki.
This was the only time a Musical song would be used in the anime though it should be noted that Moon Lips also sang the new version of the Japanese opening theme song, Moonlight Densetsu which aired with the Sailor Moon S and Sailor Moon SuperS seasons.
It is unknown if this song was originally conceived as a song to be used in the Musicals and Anime as some sort of cross promotion or if the Anime producers simply liked it so much and decided to include it in the show.
This question was asked via Twitter but then removed before I could answer it. It is an interesting question though and one I had to research myself to find the answer so thought others may find it useful if I added it anyway.
