SAILOR MOON Anime Is Reborn, Returns This Summer

SAILOR MOON Anime Is Reborn, Returns This Summer

After 22 years since its original run, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon is back. Titled Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon Crystal by creator Naoko Takeuchi, the new animated series is not a remake of the original anime, but an adaptation that’s more true to the Sailor Moon manga (think Full Metal Alchemist and Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood).

If that isn’t enough of a treat for you, Sailor Moon’s original voice actress, Kotono Mitsuishi, is reprising her iconic role, while the rest of the cast will be filled out by senshi-newcomers. Mercury will be played by Hisako Kanemoto, Mars by Rina Satou, Jupiter by Ami Koshimizu, and Venus by Sizuka Itou.

Get ready to be as ecstatic as Usagi gets when she sees food. The first episode will air simultaneously worldwide via NicoNicoDouga on Saturday, July 5 at 7 PM Japan time (the same time as the original series run). If you don’t want to do the math, that’s 6 AM EDT and 3 AM PDT July 5th (UTC 10:00). While subsequent episodes will air at the same time every first and third Saturdays of every month, it’s still unknown whether we’ll see the series on TV.

You can take a look at the designs of the inner senshi below. The character re-designs are more in line with the original manga, while still incorporating the familiar look of the ’90s animated series. Sadly, no images have surfaced of everyone’s favorite talking cat, Luna.

Thrilled that Sailor Moon is yet again reborn? Show us your excitement in the comments below.

    Very good blog! Do you have any helpful hints for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Thanks!

  2. Thanks for the sensible critique. Me and my neighbor were just preparing to do some research on this. We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I am very glad to see such wonderful information being shared freely out there.

    Howdy! I’m at work surfing around your blog from my new apple iphone! Just wanted to say I love reading through your blog and look forward to all your posts! Carry on the outstanding work!

  4. The very root of your writing whilst sounding reasonable at first, did not settle perfectly with me personally after some time. Somewhere within the paragraphs you were able to make me a believer unfortunately only for a while. I still have a problem with your leaps in assumptions and you might do nicely to help fill in all those gaps. In the event that you can accomplish that, I would certainly end up being fascinated.

  5. What’s Going down i am new to this, I stumbled upon this I’ve found It absolutely helpful and it has aided me out loads. I am hoping to contribute & assist other customers like its helped me. Good job.

    Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog stand out. Please let me know where you got your theme. Thanks

  7. I’m really loving the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility issues? A few of my blog visitors have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari. Do you have any suggestions to help fix this issue?

    So excited for this. I have been a Sailor Moon fan for the last 16 years and am having a feild day with trying to keep up with all the new stuff coming out. the answer is yes you will need a premium membership but its only it the answer is yes you will need a premium membership but it’s only $5 a month. However I am sure that after it airs through the site originally fans will make it available elsewhere. Moon Prism Power Makeup!
