New Sailor Moon Anime!
Posted 7/9/12 , edited 12/1/12
It's been 20 years since Sailor Moon first came into existence, and yet there are hardly any anime or manga fans who have not heard of this classic series.

The immense popularity of this show has not decreased in the slightest nor faded from the spotlight in all these years like so many other animes or mangas.

In fact, it's popularity has grown if anything, and the wonderful characters, theme songs and costumes are still fresh in many peoples memory though the series has not been on air outside of Japan in years, and the manga only recently started it's fresh reprint.

Time has indeed touched Sailor Moon gently.


And now, announced in Japan in June of 2012, there will be a BRAND SPANKING NEW SAILOR MOON ANIME that's due to come out SUMMER 2013!!

(All information concerning this is from moonkitty.net - as follows: it's a really amazing Sailor Moon fan site with a ton of information, so check it out if you are a fan like myself!)


On the 6th of June 2012 during a special Sailor Moon event in Tokyo, Japan, it was announced that a new Sailor Moon anime would be released in the Summer of 2013.

Not much was shared about the new anime but this page will update with all of the latest New Sailor Moon Anime news and information as soon as it's released so please check back regularly. I also highly recommend subscribing to my YouTube Channel and following me on Twitter both of which I use to inform Sailor Moon fans of news as it happens.

Sailor Moon Says!

Here's what we know so far...

It is confirmed that this anime is not an anime film, but a series.

The new Sailor Moon anime will be released simultaneously worldwide!

The band Momoiro Clover Z will be singing the opening theme song.

The anime will be a fresh reboot. i.e. Not a continuation of the original anime set after Sailor Stars.

Here's what we kind of, sort of, maybe know...

Judging by what was said by all involved during and after the special event I am 95% sure that Kotono Mitsuishi and Toru Furuya, the original Japanese voice actors for Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask will be reprising their roles in the new anime. If they're not reprising their roles, Toru wondering if he'll be able to keep up with the character of Tuxedo Mask after all these years and Kotono posting on her blog that she can't wait for the new anime is very perplexing.

Here's what we don't know...

We don't actually know the name of this new anime yet.

We also don't know what style the animation will be in.

It has not been announced though if this will be an ongoing anime like the original Sailor Moon anime or if it will have a limited run of twenty or so episodes or if it will stop after a year.

We do not know if any other original voice actors will be returning to the franchise.

It was assumed that the song Momoiro Clover Z performed at the special Sailor Moon 20th anniversary event, Z Maiden's War (actually released on single a week prior to the event) would be the new opening theme song for the new Sailor Moon anime due to the fact that the band helped make the new anime announcement, was wearing Sailor Moon costumes, told everyone that they would be singing the new opening and then asked the audience if they would like to hear the new song before singing it.

If this in fact is not the opening theme song and was completely unrelated, it was not conveyed very clearly at all with even native Japanese speakers expressing uncertainty if this was the opening or not. For now I'm listing the opening as something we "don't know" until it's confirmed by a source separate from the event.

We don't know what the story will be yet or what characters will be appearing. No idea if it will be an original creation much like the live action Sailor Moon series, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon was or if it will be based on the Sailor Moon manga.

While confirmed to be released simultaneously worldwide in Summer 2013, it has not been confirmed if it will be subbed or dubbed and via which method the new Sailor Moon anime will be distributed or which companies will be involved.

It is very possible that a new Sailor Moon musical could be created to coincide with the new anime. NOT only were the original Sailor Moon musicals very popular in Japan (continuing to run years after the original anime ended) but it is very common practice now for animes in Japan to get musical productions made. This has not been confirmed yet though.


This is incredible news for any Sailor Moon fan so spread the word, and don't forget to check out the mangas which are being reprinted in English in beautiful new editions!

If it is from Toei Animation (like the original series), that would make it unlikely. Check for anything from them on CR and I believe you'll find only old library titles.

In contrast, Funimation has two Toei Animation simulcasts (One Piece and Toriko).

Really Looking forward to a new series of Sailor Moon - although with Sailor Moon being the original number one battle magical girls series and Precure having become the biggest Magical Girl Franchise since I wonder how it will go when the two complete (but seeing as their both Toei Animation Series - a crossover might be in order)

Sailor Moon is one of the first anime shows I watched as a kid - I hope they do a great job - because that show was pretty awesome.

I just want them to release the digital restored Sailor Moon they released in several counties but not in the United States. This was also the series that got me in to full blown anime.

I'd give it a fair chance, one big change is to follow the manga and not do the alterations in Sailor Moon Super S. They removed some of the outer scouts, made it less dark. I hated going from Sailor Moon S to Super S.
