    Sailor Moon Manga Gets New Anime Series in Summer 2013 (Update 4)
    posted on 2012-07-06 08:16 EDT
    Worldwide simultaneous release targeted; Momoiro Clover Z to sing theme
    The idol group Momoiro Clover Z, publisher Kodansha, and creator Naoko Takeuchi announced on Friday that a new anime adaptation of Takeuchi's Sailor Moon manga is being produced. The new anime series is aimed for release next summer, and Momoiro Clover Z will perform a theme song.

    Momoiro Clover Z made the announcement during a live event celebrating the 20th anniversary of the manga. Momoiro Clover Z sang the first Sailor Moon anime's theme song "Moonlight Densetsu" at the event via a live video feed from France, where they are guests of Japan Expo.

    Update: More background information added. Although Kotono Mitsuishi and Tohru Furuya, the voices of Sailor Moon/Usagi Tsukino and Tuxedo Mask/Mamoru Chiba in the first Sailor Moon anime, were present at the live event, the event did not specify that they will reprise their roles in the new series. The event also did not specify which song Momoiro Clover Z will perform as a theme song of the new anime.

    Update 2: Kodansha editor Fumio Osano confirmed that the new anime project is not a film project. [Via Tadashi Sudo]

    Update 3: Osano also emphasized that no details have been set for a hypothetical broadcast. However, the staff intends to release the new anime worldwide simultaneously. Source: Oricon

    Update 4: During the event, Mitsuishi mused aloud if she will appear in the new anime. In a blog post after the event, she said that she is eager to play a role in it. Thanks, Ford Prefect.

    As long as the follow the manga, I am cool with it. If not, I hope they do something new since they just did the Beryl saga a few years ago in the live action series.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    YAY! That's so cool. I LOVED Sailor Moon...I still do! I'm glad this is finally coming. It's been rumoured for such a long time! The only thing that bums me out a bit is that I had hoped She-Ra would get a relaunch before Sailor Moon. Well, it's nice to see other companies realizing the potential of their brands!

    Happy at this news. One thing that should happen is when they do a deal with the US to distribute the anime is have a strict 'no edits' policy in place (Studio Ghibli have one) as we all know how what happened to the original

    New Sailor Moon series next year

    I don't know if anyone has posted this already but there will be a new series coming out next year in Japan. I also know that the original voice actors for Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask are returning. There has been no more information since this was anounced a few months ago.

    The vendors for the Sailor Moon Manga relaunch didn't seem to have any new info. Hoping next year we'll maybe see a presence at some of the cons? Or is that too early still

    Can't wait!! Wonder if it'll be a retelling of old stories, or new stuff.

    Maybe the introduction of both the inner and outer soldiers closer together, in the first season, perhaps? The outer soldiers are, by far, my favorites.

    I hope it's the same characters. If Venus and Mars aren't Venus and Mars, I won't be much interested. But I'd also like to see a new story. I don't want to see the same thing yet again.

    Unless it's done like Evangelion. Then it could be interesting.

    I don't know how I feel about this. The show as 20 years ago, which means the VAs are much older. I mean, I know the VA for Sailor Moon does Boa Hancock in One Piece, but she no longer sounds like she can pull off Usagi. This was teh problem with the Japanese voices for Dragonball Kai. They decided to get all of the original voice actors (unless they were dead) and most of them sucked, especially Goku/Gohan. The VA just couldn't pull off those voices anymore and it was really distracting (which is why the dub to Kai is superior).

    I want it to be done exactly like the manga. There were no Monsters of the Week outside of the first few chapters.

    Sounds nice.

    The original show has been a guilty pleasure anime for me since i was 13 about 17 years ago when i saw it on TV and in fansub tapes, i did had a crush on some of the girls on the show even when i was a teen watching the dubbed version on Cartoon Network

    But let's see how this reboot turns out
