New Sailor Moon Anime Adaptation in Production

Wonderful news! The new anime adaptation (Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon ~Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon~) will premiere in either 2014 or 2015 July 2014! It will commemorate the 20th anniversary of Sailor Moon (official website) and will be subtitled in ten languages.  The Japanese female idol group, Momoiro Clovers Z, will perform both the opening and ending theme songs of the anime television series.

During the second 20th Anniversary event on August 4, 2013, it was revealed that the new Sailor Moon anime will air in December 2013 (delayed until further notice), and that it would be streamed internationally online via NicoNico.

It will NOT be a remake of the original anime. As an avid Sailor Moon fan during my childhood, I am looking forward to this adaptation! If you have never heard of Sailor Moon, check out my review of the classic anime. It is considered one of the most popular and top-selling franchises in Japanese animation history.  Check back for more updates.
