New Sailor Moon series!!

A new series for the Pretty Guardian is in production for 2013!! Japanese publisher Kodansha and anime company Toei announced that they will be working on bringing back the Sailor Scouts in a brand news series set to debut next summer.

The original manga series (published by Tokyopop) and anime series kicked off the anime and manga revolution, bringing a new cashe of fans, especially women and girls, into the world of comics. Since the series’ re-releasement by Kodansha, fans have been speculating the Sailor Scouts’ return. They can now rest easy knowing that this is going to happen. The new anime was announced by Sailor Moon creator Naoko Takeuchi and the idol group Momoiro Clover Z, which will perform the theme song, during a 20th anniversary event that was streamed live on the Japanese site Nico Nico. Voice actors Kotono Mitsuishi and Tohru Furuya, who played Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask in the original, were at the event, but but there’s no word on whether they will repraise their roles for the new series (although the Sailor Moon fan site Moon Chase says they will). While details are sketchy right now, it appears that the anime will be released simultaneously worldwide.

The offical press release is on Kodansha’s website in Japanese of course.
