new sailor moon anime in 2013

On the 6th of July 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. This has since changed. Read below for what we know, don't know and maybe know about the New Sailor Moon Anime and make sure to check back for updates!

To get the latest Sailor Moon news as soon as possible, I also highly recommend subscribing to my YouTube Channel and following me on Twitter, Facebook and Google+.

I use all of these to inform Sailor Moon fans of news as it happens as soon as I hear it.

Sailor Moon Says!

Here's what we know so far...

  • The name of the new Sailor Moon anime will be, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal.
  • It will run for 26 episodes with the possibility of it running longer if it's a success.
  • pretty guardian sailor moon crystal anime title logo

  • Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal will air on the first and third Saturday of the month with the very first episode being broadcast on the 5th of July 2014 on Niconico, Hulu, Crunchyroll and NeonAlley.
  • The character designs will indeed be, as mentioned officially, very close to the original Sailor Moon manga designs. One image which was hosted on the official site's servers was leaked online before the official site had a chance to reveal it as planned. As you can see, all of the subtle details such as the hair clips and choker are present.

  • Kotono Mitsuishi will be reprising the role of Sailor Moon in the Japanese version of Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal. Completely new voice actors will be voicing the other characters.
    Hisako Kanemoto will be voicing Sailor Mercury. She played Cure Peace in Smile Pretty Cure. Rina Satou will be voicing Sailor Mars. Western fans may know her from playing Negi Springfield in Negima. Ami Koshimizu will play Sailor Jupiter. She played Cure Melody in Suite Pretty Cure and Kallen Stadtfeld in Code Geass. Finally, Shizuka Itou will be Sailor Venus. She's very well known for playing Himawari in xxxHOLiC and Belle (Bianca) in the Japanese version of Pokemon Black & White.

  • The initial online streaming of the episodes will be subtitled in 12 different languages with the original Japanese audio.
  • It is confirmed that this anime is not an anime film, but a series.
  • Word is that it will be closer to the manga but we won't really know how close until it airs. Considering how different the original anime was compared to the manga, this wouldn't be hard.
  • The band Momoiro Clover Z will be singing the opening and closing theme songs. The new opening is called MOON PRIDE and the new closing theme is called Moon Rainbow. Both songs are included on a special Blu-ray/CD release that also comes with karaoke versions and the official music video.
  • The anime will be a fresh reboot. i.e. Not a continuation of the original anime set after Sailor Stars.
  • TOEI will be in charge of animation. They were the same company involved with the original anime series.
  • Yuji Kobayashi will be in charge of scripts/planning. He has worked on Saint Seiya Omega, Smile Pretty Cure and Garo (an awesome series).
  • The director of the series, Munehisa Sakai has worked on series like One Piece and Suite Pretty Cure. You can see an example of his work on Suite Pretty Cure here.
  • The character designer is Yukie Sako. While this will be her first time in the position she has worked on some amazing animation projects in the past ranging from Code Geass, Ghost in the Shell, a Pokemon movie (Zoroark) and Princess Mononoke.
  • Takashi Kurahashi & Yumi Hosaka are the art directors. Takashi has worked on quite a few projects. Yumi seems to have worked on a few of the same projects as Takashi.
  • The music composer, Yasuharu Takanashi has composed music for a wide variety of popular anime series such as Naruto Shippuden, Hell Girl, Fairy Tail and the last few Pretty Cure series and movies just to name a few.
  • King Records will be in charge of music production.
  • Here's what we kind of, sort of, maybe know...

  • An eventual DVD / Bluray release of the new Sailor Moon anime is almost a guarantee (and the official site has confirmed there are plans) though I wouldn't expect to hear any details about this (such as companies involved and release dates) until a few months after the initial airing of the anime in Japan.
  • It is safe to assume that this anime will also air on TV though no stations have been confirmed. It is most definitely likely that it will "air" online first well before it airs on TV.
  • Here's what we don't know...

  • While it's likely that it will be dubbed in English and other languages sometime in the future, no information has been given regarding voice actors or companies involved. Many past Sailor Moon voice actors have expressed interest in returning to reprise their roles though that does not guarantee involvement.
