UPDATE: IT'S A NEW ANIME SERIES! NEWS IS HERE.


Check out this article on Crunchroll for all the details!

"In celebration of its 20th anniversary, the original Japanese voice actors will once again reunite for an appearance which will be streamed live from Nico Nico. They will recount nostalgic memories, divulge behind-the-scenes secrets, unveil 20th anniversary merchandise, and surprise the fans with an exciting new announcement."


Emphasis is mine.

AHHH NEW MERCH!? AHHHHHH NEW ANNOUNCEMENT?!

BEGIN WEEK LONG SPECULATION! :happybounce:

EDIT: Apparently a bunch of people don't know that the English manga is already being republished in the USA with updated translations and art. You should probably check that out!
Big news coming out of Japan for Sailormoon's 20th Anniversary!

The new manga has retouched art, it's really pretty! I'd be thrilled with a new artbook or something hehe

Retouched? :cry: What was wrong with the original? Because if it's anything like the new HD digitally remastered Blu-Ray edition of Beauty and the Beast (with new features!!!)... I really think I'd prefer the original. :paranoid:

Naoko (the original author) went back and added some more details, cleaned up the art, and just generally spruced it up (especially in the areas where she had to rush on the original run). It looks quite amazing! All new covers that Naoko made, too! I am sure there's a site somewhere that has comparisons, but I couldn't find one on a quick search

I'd really like it if they remake the anime! Update it to look nice and clean and shiny. Not very likely though, but the voice actors for Usagi and Mamoru will be there.

Maybe it will have something to do with a reboot of the manga? I heard a while back about a possible new series with Chibi Moon and the Asteroid Senshi taking center stage.

Or does it have something to do with the group Momoiro Clover Z?

I just want it to be Friday!!!

More manga would be awesome, but I'd like to see a PGSM sequel series. That was fun (if incredibly cheesy). :D

I saw this article! And my reaction was pretty much "ASLD:FSD;AEWWELFV YES!"

I squealed with glee, and shared the news with my boyfriend, who was, sadly, far less excited than I was.

Please let the announcement be a new movie or short to celebrate the anniversary. Cause newly animated Sailor Moon is high on my DO WANT list.

Um, I'm so psyched for the seiyuu reunion that I don't know that any announcement short of an anime reboot or new series could possibly match it. I'm guessing they're probably going to announce blu-ray releases of the anime, though. Maybe with fun special features? :D

i hope it's a manga accurate anime maybe? (i would seriously die of fan spazz if they did that.) i mean, while i think the manga is a bit fast paced, there were some really cool things in the manga that they changed in the anime. *coughcough-endofclassic-cough-theentiretyofStarS-cough-sailorsaturn-cough*

i'd also be happy with re-release of the anime in english speaking regions. and maybe a new dub? (as much as i have this odd nostalgic+oh-my-god-it's-so-bad-it's-good love for the DiC/Cloverway dub... yeaaaaaahhh...)

As I mentioned in a few other posts, I doubt it would have anything to do with the English market, but some kind of new animated ANYTHING would be so exciting. @___@ I think probably my hopes are bigger than reality, but the new merch prospects is REALLY exciting.

Oh, I wonder if they are taking the musicals off hiatus? That's another possibility, I guess!

i was kinda stretching it when thinking it was English market related >.> i would be all over a new anime if they did that though...

ooh! the return of the musicals would be so cool.

They've been on hiatus for a while ;( A 20th Anniversary special would be kinda cool! But I think a movie or OVA would make more money maybe
