Fans of Sailor Moon finally have their first image of the new series!
The full title of the reboot translates to Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal and will feature a new origin story for ditzy teen Usagi Tsukino, who transforms into the hero known as Sailor Moon!
In other words, it’s basically the same plot as Anna Karenina! LOLz!
Also revealed today was the air date; the series will stream simultaneously worldwide starting in July. After months of delays (the project was first announced two years ago!), this is pretty big news for fans!
So we’re not usually big anime fans, but Sailor Moon was a big pioneer for female heroes, and one of the first badass chicks who a lot of young girls were exposed to.
So we’re happy that after 20 years, a new generation will get to experience the show for themselves.
Ch-ch-check out the full image (below)![Image via Toei Animation.]
