Publisher Kodansha and creator Naoko Takeuchi announced on Friday that a new anime adaptation of Takeuchi's Sailor Moon manga is being produced. The new anime series is aimed for release next summer, and the idol group Momoiro Clover Z will perform a theme song.
Kodansha and Takeuchi made the announcement during a live event celebrating the 20th anniversary of the manga.Momoiro Clover Z sang the first Sailor Moon anime's theme song "Moonlight Densetsu" at the event via a live video feed from France, where they are guests of Japan Expo.

Although Kotono Mitsuishi and Tohru Furuya, the voices of Sailor Moon/Usagi Tsukino and Tuxedo Mask/Mamoru Chiba in the first Sailor Moon anime, were present at the live event, the event did not specify that they will reprise their roles in the new series. The event also did not specify which song Momoiro Clover Z will perform as a theme song of the new anime.

Kodansha editor Fumio Osano confirmed that the new anime project is not a film project.

 

UPDATE: Official trailer launches on March 21, 2014, approximately 8 days from now!

If I can play it during a drive-by shooting in GTA San Andreas and feel good about it, I'll know they're doing something right.

My interest in this is great.

Of course they wouldnt just cut and paste anything from the old show.. but looking at past remakes/sequels to anime with iconic music, I'm sure it'll be like a new cover/take on the same old song and tune (like they've done with Hokuto no Ken and Cutey Honey in the past) But I think they should have got a more prestigous singer to do it, not some idol group =P (Didn't Usagi's/Christie's VA sing? She should do the new song)

I'm also expecting this to be more like the manga in content, but I doubt they'll make it look more like the manga or even like the 90s style the old anime had.. in fact, I'm a little worried we'll be seeing what is accepted as the look of teenagers in todays anime - moe~

Please... not this, please. :( lol

Whatever it looks like, I doubt it'll look as awesome and beautiful as the old show did... unless maybe they get Rin Shin to work on it, albeit more conservatively than her other works...

Kotono Mitsuishi - or any voice actress from the main cast - performed the lyrics for "Moonlight Densetsu". But she did perform some image songs and a select few from the movies.

If Saint Seiya's art style for Saint Seiya Omega is in line with the 80s series and all of Leiji Matsumoto's anime - to this day - still has the same art style, I don't think we'll have to worry about drastic changes. They'll find a way to balance it out.

You mean to say no one from the cast sang in Moonlight Densetsu right? I figured as much, but I meant that maybe they could bring her back now to sing the new Moonlight Densetsu, since I know you've said she's sang other songs before. Do you think Mitsuishi could reprise her role of Usagi even? After reading what Harada said about voice acting I have to wonder, lol.

On a related note, I loved how even the english dub I saw on TV ended up being the same song with different english lyrics rather than it getting completely replaced by something else.. no wonder it got me hooked on the series as soon as I saw it. But then even how Tekkaman Blade's "Teknoman" opening was done also got be hooked on that series, lol. Pokemon's intro on the other hand nearly turned me away from the anime.. but I did manage to watch one or two seasons I think (yeah I was actually annoyed by it, so much that I only started watching once the intro ended XD)

Dude, do you know who she is? Mitsuishi is the Michael Jordan to Rie Kugimiya's Kobe Bryant, and she's still in the game of voice acting. Even in the recent Evangelion movies, she still hasn't lost her voice for Misato Katsuragi since nineteen-ninety-muthafuckin'-five!

She got this, mane! =P

lol, I'm sure of that, but I was only thinking of how Harada said that some VAs decline to do roles they did years ago for one reason or another (not due to retirement/age but maybe for other reasons). But if she's still rocking Misato (yay, one of the few Eva characters that appeals to me, lol) then I guess we're fine.

All this talk about Sailor Moon makes me wanna bring up the one good fighting game on Super Famicom.

Most of the Japanese casual matches the YT user Soh85 uploaded were recently made private, but I found one decent vid.

NOTE: Uranus = DOA4 Hayabusa

Hey Awesmic, I dont know if it's true but I read on Sankaku Complex that Mitsuishi is confirmed for reprising the role of Usagi... (their source for the information is a Japanese link that I cant read to make sure, though)

The only thing confirmed is the fact she and Tohru Furuya were at Japan Expo. They didn't say anything about reprising roles yet.
