In the name of the moon, the punishment is REAL!

After some long delays, it looks like the July 2014 setting for newly named Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal is for real when the official poster and synopsis appeared on Toei's official website for the project. It revealed the previously announced staff credits as well as the countdown meter that was shown on the previous day.

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…!?"

The anime will be streamed worldwide via NicoNico, and it will be an adaptation of the original manga and not just a remake.

EDIT: It turns out that the revealed picture and information was leaked early when the countdown failed to process and well, the cats went out of the bag quickly. There was also a site page by Toei, but it went 404 on us even though everything is revealed now.
