A brand new Sailor Moon series is coming to television this July! Anime News Network says that Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal will begin streaming on the Niconico website worldwide. Here's a synopsis of what we can expect:
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….
Wait, doesn't this sound like the first series? In the same vein as Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood, this anime will be reworked and built more closely around the manga it was originally adapted from. This all goes along with the 20th anniversary of Sailor Moon, and while I'm not the biggest fan of the series, I know more than a few of our readers will be pumped!
