Announced on Friday Publisher Kodansha and creator Naoko Takeuchi, a new anime adaptation of Takeuchi’s Sailor Moon manga is in production. The new anime series is set for release summer 2013, and Idol group Momoiro Clover Z is doing one of the theme songs for the series. The announcement was a live event celebrating 20 Years of The Sailor Moon Manga Saga. Momoiro Clover Z was present and sang the first Sailor Moon anime’s theme song “Moonlight Densetsu”while attending “Japan Expo” in France as special guests and this was done via a live video feed, so many otaku were on hand to enjoy the festivities and help in celebrating the 20 year celebration..
Also on hand were Mitsuishi and Tohru Furuya, the voice actress and actor of Sailor Moon/Usagi Tsukino and Tuxedo Mask/Mamoru Chiba from the 1st Sailor Moon series, were present for the live event, however neither specified that they’ll be reprised for their roles in the new series. Kodansha editor Fumio Osano also explained this is not a movie announcement but rather as said a “Series” and I for one look forward to it as well as my girls who were lucky enough to watch the edited edition on TV while growing up.
In unrelated news, Cybernauts Podcast crew is doing ZZ and Zeta Gundam reviews for the summer of 2012. There are 3 Eps. Posted at this point and have to say even though I’m not there in some of them it is pure humor to listen to. I should be back on as soon as all these real life events subside and I can get back on full on and without interruption. Please feel free to swing by the forum if you have a suggestion or request on a series you’d like to hear about. We’re always up for a discussion.
Personally, I’m playing a few games currently as well, Star Trek online, Nuclear Dawn, classic StarCraft and Team Fortress II. At the moment I’m currently on the bridge of the U.S.S Genom and I’m battling Klingons (Yea, I know there are a ton of puns there) my guess is there is an event on Xp points and such that I am not aware and am too lazy to check at the website. I am however getting in there and rough housing it and locking horns with those battle hungry bastards. We’ll show them that the federation can dish it out as well as take it full tilt! Damn the shields and arm the Photon torpedos we’re heading in warp factor 12 and let send as many of them to Sto’Vo’Kor and we’ll take on the empire’s yo’ qlj! And send what’s left in an urn! FOR GLORY FOR HONOR AND FOR THE FEDERATION!
