Those who grew up in the ’90s or saw the series on Toonami a decade ago are going to be excited come 2013.

Here is a summary of the news from Anime News network:

At an event celebrating the 20th anniversary of the 1st series, with guests including the original voices of Sailor Moon/Usagi Tsukino (Serena in the American dub) And Tuxedo Mask/Mamoru Chiba (Darien). Naoko Takeuchi, the author of the original manga, made the announcement with Japanese pop group Momoiro Clover Z, who will provide the theme song for the new series.

At the event they sang a cover of the original theme Moonlight Densetsu.

The new anime will be released simultaneously around the world, Summer 2013.

The hype for a new series has been building up since last year when the Sailor Moon manga was reprinted and landed on The New York Times‘ Manga Best Seller list, and the prequel story Sailor V was brought over from Japan.

  • Arthur

    Praise to one of the most fun guilty pleasures that came from Japan, also the whole school girl uniform came from Sailor Moon, so she does have my respect

    This is the Anime that turned me on to that whole world. I tried to watch it again a few months ago . . . I still love it but it’s kind of terrible. The Manga, on the other hand, is one of my favorites of all time. The artwork is so fantastic. I can’t wait to hear more about this!

      Fighting evil by moonlight
      Wining love by daylight
      Never running from a real fight
      She is the one named Sailor Moon! 

      Yeah, you’re right. The new theme song has got some competition. :)

    OH MY GOODNESS!
    I was such a huge Sailor Moon fan when I was growing up, my mother and would watch every single episode without fail!
    This is actually kind of shocking.. I can’t believe they’re bringing it back!

    BEST NEWS EVER

  • Amanda J Taylor

    So wait? A whole new storyline? That could be make or break. I know I watched the episodes over and over where Darien finds out Serena is Sailor Moon. It’s going to be difficult to imagine it a different way!

    • http://twitter.com/purplehrdwonder Caitlin Kelly

      The original anime deviated A LOT from the manga, which is supposed to be far superior (and currently being re-released in English) so I imagine this new series would adhere far more to the manga, like Fullmetal Alchemist and Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.

  • HPForever3 :)

    Oh my gosh! I grew up watching Sailor Moon…this is going to be pretty cool! I’m sooo excited!!! :)

    Wow, it feels like they’re bringing back all of the shows I used to love. A continuation of the ATLA series (Legend of Korra), Teen Titans (a very sucky version mind you…freaking bobble heads. It’d be soo much cooler if they just continued on after season 5. Although, I’m happy nonetheless.) and now Sailor Moon! :) 

  • Mel823

    OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD!  AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

    I’m so excited.

    I hope they re-release the original series on DVD and/or blu-ray again. For some us who missed out on it the first time.
