Holy @#$%, There’s Going to Be a New Sailor Moon Anime

It’s true! Creator Naoko Takeushi announced it at an event celebrating the 20th anniversary of the manga. About all we know is that it will premiere next summer, and it seems like it’s going to re-adapt the original manga. Like a Sailor Moon Kai, if you will. 

Sailor Moon is still the biggest shojo series in the world — by a large margin — so I’d say this is a great idea for the anime industry and fans alike. My question is who’s going to put it on American TV? Because someone’s going to — it’s just too damn popular not to try. Which leads to the next question: If it’s going to be adapted for American TV, will she be called Usagi… or Serena? (Via Anime News Network)
