New Sailor Moon Cast Announced
She is the one in whom we can depend once again! Sailor Moon is set to return in a reboot of the original ’90s anime hit!
Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal is the new title of this magical new story! Kotono Mitsuishi is reprising her role as Usagi Tsukino/Sailor Moon Kotono’s feelings on returning to the role she started 22 years ago: “I want to hurry up and meet moving Usagi again.” She thinks that there are some people who are worried about the new cast. This is because the fans loved the work, and they loved the characters. She added that she is the same way. She said that she will not put a lid on her feelings about the earlier anime and throw them away, but she will take them with her into the new work. She asks fans to cheer the staff on, and “miracle romance” with her. –Anime News Network
They had many titles to choose from but original creator Naoko Takeuchi preferred Crystal. The staff say they will bring a new world feel with the advanced technology. “It is not remaking the previous anime,” Says Producer Atsutoshi Umezawa “but adapting the original manga and starting from scratch again.”
This is amazing! I know that I am not the only guy my age (26) that used to watch this show every Saturday and I look forward to “nerd out” once again on July 5th when the new series launches on Nico Nico! Oh I hope they have sub titles!

The synopsis “Usagi Tsukino is a second-year middle school girl who is a little clumsy and a crybaby, but she is full of energy. One day, she meets Luna, a black cat with a crescent moon on her forehead, and she transforms into Sailor Moon, a sailor-uniformed pretty guardian of love and justice! As a chosen guardian of justice, Usagi seems to have a mission to find the Illusionary Silver Crystal with the other guardians and to protect the princess. Meanwhile, the queen of the Dark Kingdom, Queen Beryl, also sends minions to the town where Usagi lives to obtain the Illusionary Silver Crystal, which has immense power. This causes strange events to unfold…. Can Sailor Moon really find the Illusionary Silver Crystal with the other Sailor guardians, and protect the princess…!?”
