Sailor Moon fans, your waiting is over, well almost over. In July of this year, the official Sailor Moon site has announced that the new anime series will air in a worldwide simulcast through the well-known video distribution portal site Nico Nico Douga, although that could be changed. The anime has been revealed to not be a remake of the classic series but a more faithful adaption of the manga. In comparison to the original series, which took its own liberties from the source material, the new anime will represent a more accurate portrayal of the manga. The new anime will serve as one part of the “Sailor Moon 20th Anniversary Project.” At the New York Comic-com of 2013, it was detailed that the premiere of the series has accepted the challenging feat of distributing the premiere internationally by showing it in ten different subtitled languages.

Sailor Moon has had such a major impact and influence on the world of pop culture and broke all kinds of records for animation in America. In the 1990’s, when anime and manga were becoming increasingly popular in America, Sailor Moon took people by storm and created a gateway for Eastern pop culture to have an impact on the Western world and internationally. To this day, it remains as one of the most known widespread and beloved anime series alongside titles such as Dragonball Z, Gundam Wing, and Pokemon.

Another interesting aspect of this anime is that it will be directed by the same individual responsible for the 2009 mega-hit One Piece Film: Strong World, director Munehisa Sakai and created by Toei Animation. In addition to the announcements in regards to the staff, producer Atsutoshi Umezawa and director Sakai released their own comments which delineate slight hints to aspects of the story that hasn’t been released yet. According to producer Atsutoshi Umezawa in a press release detailed on Anime News Network, “This anime adaptation of Sailor Moon isn’t a remake of the former anime, it’s an unlikely project in which we are starting once more from zero and creating an anime based on Takeuchi-sensei’s original work. All of us on the staff are working our hardest to show everyone a completely new Sailor Moon the likes of which has never been seen. Please look forward to it.”
