As many people by now know the Sailor Moon anime is getting a definite much needed upgrade. It has plans to be released in July of 2014 after various set backs since it was set to be released in the summer of 2013. This is one series that I have been excited about since the manga started being re-released.
The anime this time from what I’ve been reading isn’t so much a re-release of the same story but is instead going to follow the plot of the manga which means it’s going to be much more adult compared to the version many of us saw as kids.
Now Sailor Moon for me was the first anime series I ever watched and it is still one of my very favorites. But when I re-watched it as an adult I couldn’t help but notice how the same thing seems to happen in every single series. The negaverse sends out a monster onto Earth many people get their energy taken. Sailor Moon tries to help and says her tag line. The other scouts come and get defeated. Tuxedo Mask comes along and helps out Sailor Moon and then Sailor moon defeats the monster with one of her weapons. Well while this worked great when I was kid it got kind of boring for me as an adult.
But that didn’t stop me from falling in love all over again with the sailor scouts, Darien and Serena’s love story, and the deep friendship that all the sailor scouts have for each other.
Overall though I can’t wait until this is released and I can’t wait to see what American Anime corporation gets a hold of this nostalgic anime.
