BIG news!

Usagi herd u liekd mudkips! :D
So according to the Niconico Douga Sailor Moon event, there will be a BRAND NEW Sailor Moon anime in the Summer of 2013!

What we know so far:
-It will be a brand-new animated show, NOT a rebroadcast of the old show
-It will be a series, not a movie
-It sounds like it will be voiced by the original cast, or at least they want to TRY to (Kotono Mitsuishi and Toru Furuya seem to be confirmed as Usagi and Mamoru again, at least?! This is still a bit unclear.)
-It will have OP and Ending themes by Momoiro Clover Z
-It will be streamed WORLD-WIDE (confirmed by Famitsu Coverage!)
-It is intended to be targeted towards older fans of the original series (though I'm SURE it will draw new viewers, I mean, c'mon)--this doesn't mean it will be "adult/more serious/more violent", however.
-As of right now, the title is just "Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon", same as the original series/manga.

I didn't get to watch the entire stream because apparently my computer hates Niconico, but feel free to add anything in the comments or just GENERALLY FREAK OUT BECAUSE I KNOW I AM! *____*

EDIT: There are a LOT of places reporting that "Otome Sensou" is the new OP. This doesn't look to be the case--it's just Momorio Clover Z's newest single that's a theme to one of the new Pokemon movies, and they were promoting it at the event. It is unclear what the new OP will be right now.

EDIT #2: I don't know where people are getting this "IT WILL FOLLOW THE MANGA MORE CLOSELY AND WON'T BE FOR KIDS!!" stuff...just because they said at the event that they wanted to do something for the older fans doesn't mean it will be for "adults", and they never specified on if it was going to be more like the manga or not. (I think some people are just taking the "based on the manga of the same name" information out of context.) Right now there are literally NO DETAILS other than what little is stated above, so don't get over-excited excited yet. XD

EDIT #3: From the looks of Kotono's latest blog post, she definitely wants to be Usagi again--she talks about being "itching" to act again, and that the enemy this time isn't the Dark Kingdom, but her own recklessness. XD Awww.

EDIT #4: Sailormoonlife has translations up for the Famitsu coverage on the story here and here in English for those who don't know Japanese. The Famitsu report confirms the claim of world-wide streaming of the new anime, as well as a new, full-color (?!?!) collector's edition re-release of the manga (along with Sailor V), and memorial re-releases of the anime (a new DVD to be released each month with a different Senshi on the cover) starting in October. They also hint that new merchandise will also be released.

SERIOUSLY THIS IS THE BEST NEWS TO WAKE UP TO, NOTHING CAN RUIN MY DAY NOW. Though I am sad they won't keep Moonlight Densetsu as the new theme... the song is legendary, it just doesn't feel right to have something else.

I don't to be a killjoy right now, but I wonder what this means for the future of the original anime? Will we ever get a redub or will they just focus on the new series? Aaaah, too many questions!"
6th-Jul-2012 12:33 pm (UTC)
No, you're totally not a killjoy! I had similar thoughts, myself. I love Moonlight Densetsu, and I wonder if there's a possibility they might still include it somehow (Momoiro Clover Z DID sing a cover of it in the livestream). I also wonder if this means that the possibility of re-releasing the older series is dead now? Or maybe they'll see how well the new one does and release it much later as 'Classic Sailor Moon'? :|a

I'm assuming Funimation is probably going to be doing the streaming in North America, since people kept saying they were talking with Toei about something. If that's the case, if they handle it well, they might let Funi release DVDs and stuff in the future, so....fingers crossed!!

Otome Sensou IS NOT the opening. It's Momoclo's new single. They just sang it because it's their new song. The single is already tied-in with the new Pokemon movie. They will be the singers and will provide a NEW song for the NEW anime.

Sorry, I am a bit annoyed that people keep repeating this and it's not right, see this (http://headlines.yahoo.co.jp/hl?a=20120706-00000061-nataliec-ent). Unless another Japanese source can support the claim.

Ah, my mistake! Thanks for clarifying.

Am I still dreaming? This is a dream, right?

I never expected this in a million years! I imagine it'll take a bit for it to sink in fully for me.

Best news EVAR!

I wonder what direction they will go with?

Hoping they stick more to the manga :)
6th-Jul-2012 01:11 pm (UTC)
I hope so, too. That would be so, so awesome.

i am so so so excited HOWEVER i simply do not do well with change............. i love the style of the original and i am imagining a complete revamping BUT who knows!! i mean hell i'm just excited for new merchandise awaaahhghhh
6th-Jul-2012 01:04 pm (UTC)
I just hope they don't make it all moe to appeal to creepy fanboys. :(
6th-Jul-2012 01:04 pm (UTC)
also it's like lmao i feel like we have heard this "news" so many times over the last 10 years and it's never been true and now that i've stopped hoping for it, it's finally here and it is like not sinking in
6th-Jul-2012 01:18 pm (UTC)
While that's true, most of the other stuff we've heard in the past were just rumors. Getting to see people like Kotono Mitsuishi ACTUALLY SAY "I'm going to be Sailor Moon again!" and all this official stuff straight from the source is very exciting. :D But I understand, it's hard not to think "THERE'S NO WAY THIS IS REALLLLL" after all the years of speculation and rumors. XD;;

That Momoiro Clover Z PV of "Otome Sensou" isn't the new OP theme...it looks like they just performed it because it's their new single & they were promoting it at the event. So we're not sure what the OP will be yet.

As for anime-only characters or pairings, that's hard to tell. Some places are reporting that the new anime is "based off the manga", but they said at the event that they were making the target audience of the show "older fans of the original"...If it's going to be more closely based off the manga, then it would be unlikely. But we won't know for sure until it starts, I guess!

They confirmed it's an entirely new show, so I'm sure it'll have new content. I'm hoping it'll be closer to the manga than the original!
