No, it's not a rumor. A new Sailor Moon
anime series is set to debut next year!
From Anime News Network: Sailor Moon Manga Series Gets New Anime in Summer 2013
So, what do you guys think?
Here's what I wrote in my personal journal about the announcement: I...kinda have mixed feelings about this. On one hand, it's more Sailor Moon
! Yay! Of course I can't wait to see it. On the other hand, it sounds like it's just going to be a remake, and if given a choice, I'd rather have the series be about something new
and different -- like the founding of Crystal Tokyo or maybe focused on Chibi-Usa and her Sailor Quartet. Even setting it during the time of Silver Millennium would be cool. Then again, if they give it the Fullmetal Alchemist
treatment and stay faithful to the manga, that would be kind of awesome, too, as long as it's not just the first arc. I'm frankly tired of the first arc, which they already retold (albeit with some major differences) in PGSM. Plus, I admit it, I want more Helios. :P
