░▒▓ 美少女戦士セーラームーン” ▓▒░
░▒▓ Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon ▓▒░
Sailor Moon was essential to bringing Anime to the States, so in a way we are all indebted to it. Everyone who watches anime has heard of it and everyone who had an antenna, like me, growing up in the 90's HAD to of seen it before heading to school.
That spot before or after Power Rangers in the morning?
No matter who you are Nostalgia will get you. Maybe you hated it when your sister made you watch it back in elementary school and have had a change of heart but don't want to commit to the old, very long, awesome series. In that
case this might be just for you. Maybe you're a long time fan and have way more up to date information than I do. Then this definitely is for you.
And stop flaming my thread! j/k
Anyways, onto the content.
So the news broke out on this story backaround the time of the France Japan Expo in 2012 and since then it has been a rollercoaster of events for any Sailor Moon fan.
A few months after that series creator Naoko Takeuchi gave the news it was indefinitely delayed and all Sailor Moon fans felt their hearts sink. Fumio Osano, one of the Manga editors, followed by publicly announcing this via Twitter.
Several months later those sunken hearts were lifted with the announcement that the show had a potential release date of Q4 2013 and it will be streamed on Nico Nico Douga.
The following day minuscule details were released from the very same, Fumio Osano. What has been reported is that the show is taking the Sailor Scouts on a new adventure and the anime in a new direction. You can imagine his excitement in being able to announce
this after the previous.
What's also been released is that the girls from Momoiro Clover Z will be stepping up to create both the opening and ending theme of this nostalgic series. You might know them from their other work. Like the first opening for Pretty Cure. Check out their work
at the bottom of the post.
You can also bet that there will be plenty of chances to be exploited via must have merchandise products like Usagi's (Serena) actual earrings worn on the show. Bandai has stepped it up a notch with their marketing and has released
the Sailor Moon inspired jewelry pieces. Other merchandising will include monthly released figurines and clothing.

Post up any comments, concerns, exciting details and, of course, whatever you want to share.
More before the launch!
Spread the love that is anime!
