Sailor Moon Reboot Scheduled for 2013
A refresh of Toei Animation’s extremely popular Sailor Moon anime is currently under development and slated for release in the summer of 2013. The franchise was originally birthed in the fertile mind of mangaka Naoko Takeuchi back in 1992, and eventually went on to become one of the most popular licenses in the world, and became the gateway show for many non-Japanese anime fans.
The new anime series will be co-produced by Kodanshi Comics, and will still focus on the story of a group of defenders from a magical kingdom that once spanned the solar system, who must fight the forces of evil and whatever monster they can call upon on a regular basis. The show is notable for its use of the trademark sailor costumes, which were modeled on Japanese schoolgirl uniforms.
The producers have not released any other details about the new storyline or the voice talent, but it was confirmed that the show’s new theme song will be provided by Momoiro Clover Z.
