Sailor Moon 20th Aniversary Remake

Hey guys!
I don't know if many of you are fans of anime. I'm not but there are a few series that I really enjoy. My all time favorite series hands down is Sailor Moon which just turned 20 years old!. I know many consider it a  "little girls cartoon" but it holds a very special place in my heart. I know many people my age who share the same feelings.

All the main characters from the 5th season
Unfortunately for those of us who want to watch the series again, Sailor Moon has been off the air for over 10 years. Toei Animation stopped producing Sailor Moon DVDs and the few existing ones out there cost a kidney. Megaupload was taken down and it is nearly impossible to watched the complete series, all 200 episodes + 3 movies.
But behold my friend, there are some good news. Extremely good news. Last month it was announced that a new version of Sailor Moon is on the works, and it is schedule to air worldwide on summer 2013!

I'm so happy I just can't wait! I will have my childhood back ヽ(;▽;)ノ

I've watched all the episodes, specials, movies, around 3 times. I had toys, and still have the video games. Even those that were only released in Japan. I just wan to buy more memorabilia!

Since last year they have started to produce a new edition of the manga. So far they have released 5 or 6 volumes. I will buy they but once all 18 volumes are available. I hate to wait 3 months to find out what happens next.

 I just hope for a couple things
- Hope they don't censor Sailor Uranus and Neptune lesbian relationship. In the US version they were "cousins".
- Hope they make Sailor Stars since it never aired in the US. ("too shocking for kids" spoiler... all the sailor senshi die)
- Now that Pluto is no longer considered a planet, hope they don't cut Ms Pluto out of the show

  4. You really made me laugh with the Pluto part, hahaha.

    I've been very nostalgic about this remake of Sailor Moon. I was lucky about all Sailor Moon seasons, nothing was censored in the Latin American version :P

    I just hope they keep the old style, I wouldn't be very comfortable with a new drawing style.

    ps., Only if you're curious, I cosplayed Jupiter last week (pics at my blog) hehe.

    Take care :)
