New Sailor Moon anime coming in 2013
New Sailor Moon anime airing Summer 2013.
NEW SAILOR MOON ANIME FOR SUMMER 2013. AND IT'S GOING TO BE SIMULCASTED.
Apparently, it's going to follow the manga more closely, with the original manga creator Naoko Takeuchi supervising it. Not much else is known about the project, but supposedly Usagi's original voice actor is revising her role. (She's hinting that she wants to anyway.) And rumor has it, Ikuhara (the director for a few seasons of the original anime, Revolutionary Girl Utena, and now Mawaru Penguindrum) is directing it. And since it's following the manga, expect it to be far more dark than you remember, lol.
(Oh yeah, this year is Sailor Moon's 20th anniversary in Japan, oddly enough...)
Think what you will of Sailor Moon, but it did revolutionize mahou shoujo and even anime forever. This is huge news in the anime world, obviously.
