There’s not much out there that’s generated as much bubbling anticipation as the new Sailor Moon anime, and some more information surfaced during Sunday evening’s Sailor Moon 20th Anniversary Event #2 in Japan. The biggest news came from idol group Momoiro Clover Z, who confirmed that the anime will stream worldwide this winter.
The series is currently set to stream on Niconico, and Momoiro Clover Z will sing the opening and ending themes. The new Sailor Moon anime was previously set for a summer premiere, but was pushed back from that initial window.
As for the voice cast and staff, we’ll have to wait a bit longer for info on all that. One thing we do know is, according to editor Fumio Osano, it won’t be a direct remake of the original anime series, so it should be interesting to see what happens with the latest take on Naoko Takeuchi’s beloved creation.
