Well its been 20 years since it was introduced and its been 16 years since we last seen an new anime series instalment (Yes I am not forgetting the 2007 Toku series, not anime though) but we are finally a new instalment at the end of the year.

Plot: Usagi Tsukino is a clumsy but kindhearted teenage girl who transforms into the powerful guardian of love and justice, Sailor Moon. Meeting allies along the way who share similar fates, Usagi and her team of planetary Sailor Guardians fight to protect the universe from forces of evil and total annihilation.

Watch legally at HULU! (Available since May 2014)

For the new Sailor Moon series, check out the Sailor Moon Crystal Discussion!

Tamashii Nations already released the S.H.Figuarts of Sailor Moon with the other Senshi quickly following as expensive Japanese website exclusives. (Heck knows when Bluefin plans to release them)

So any hopes and dreams for the new series and the anniversary in general? Discuss :)

Sailor Moon rumors are pretty much a constant and there's rarely much signal among the noise. That said, a few interesting comments have come from interesting sources recently. France's Japan Lifestyle has commented that the new anime was delayed due to creative differences between Toei and creator Naoko Takeuchi.

Meanwhile, Linda Ballantyne, voice of the titular Senshi for episodes 83-159, has commented on Twitter about chatter a about a new dub.

@LABallantyne Excellent by the way is it true that #sailormoon is coming back cause that would be so awesome if it did it's my #1 favorite

@M7SONIC Not sure on the details of that. Rumor has it they may voice it in Dallas with all new actors. Sigh.

@Radikor We really don't know what's happening with that yet. But it is looking like there will be all new voice actors cast in Dallas. #poo

@OkumuraTrain:

I'm not sure. Neregate and Anime News Network has list it as a winter 2014 series. I can't find a trailer for it. I just added it as a wiki page just in case.

All I got are news articles:

Kodansha USA's general manager Dallas Middaugh reaffirmed at New York Comic Con last Friday that the new Sailor Moon anime will stream on Niconico around January, and added that it will be subtitled in 10 languages.

The female idol group Momoiro Clover Z confirmed during the Sailor Moon 20th Anniversary Event in August that the new Sailor Moon anime will stream worldwide simultaneously this winter. The adaptation was announced last summer and slated to premiere this summer but was delayed.

In Japan, Kodansha will release the Sailor Moon: Complete Edition edition manga in A5-size (8.3 x 5.8 inches) format. The first two volumes will be released simultaneously on November 26. Sailor Moon manga creator Naoko Takeuchi is drawing new covers for the release. The first two were revealed in the October issue of Nakayoshi magazine last month.

@Kelleth: @OkumuraTrain:

Finally, we get a new trailer for the Sailor Moon remake:

I'll update the OP.

The anime's website gave a synopsis of the story inspired by Naoko Takeuchi's original manga:

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…!?

The new 26-episode series will stream worldwide twice a month for one year with Kotono Mitsuishi reprising the starring title role. The anime will also star Hisako Kanemoto as Ami Mizuno/Sailor Mercury, Rina Satou as Rei Hino/Sailor Mars, Ami Koshimizu as Makoto Kino/Sailor Jupiter, and Shizuka Itou as Minako Aino/Sailor Venus.

The new anime will run the Niconico service on the first and third Saturdays every month, beginning July 5 at 7:00 p.m. (6:00 a.m. ET). Viz Media licensed the series for North America.

I was hoping for a full clip, but I guess they are building the hype for the next month.

I forgot how large their eyes are. Wow. They definitely look like animated dolls.
