While many are stammering to learn more information on the series, there still isn’t much news on the actual release date yet other than just the Summer of 2013. Toei Animation’s webpage also doesn’t have any updates on exactly when this summer it will air in Japan. The news about a global release doesn’t pertain to a world wide summer release of the series, but rather a world wide release of the series once it finishes in Japan.
Actually, there hasn’t been much news since the actual announcement. Many fan girls have made clarifications on topics that were made about the original announcement. One such was that Momoiro Z will be singing the theme to the new series, the song that was sung will most likely not be the theme for the new Sailormoon. That was merely just the band’s latest hit, and it was purely for the promotion of the band/song. Another misconception was that Ikuhara Kunihiko will be directing it. While he directed the original Sailormoon, no official announcement has been made that he’ll be directing the new series. The only news is that Toei Animation will be producing it, and will most likely want a fresh take on the new series and that means a new director.
The only ‘news’ that there has been about the upcoming reboot actually comes from Toonami while at the MomoCon anime convention in Atlanta, GA, USA. While they haven’t said a definite yes or no, they are considering airing the new 2013 Sailormoon. This would be a no brainer for them, in my opinion. While they have mostly action anime for their programming it would make sense to diversify their shows and reach out to a different audience. Bring in more and possibly new viewers to their anime block on Saturdays.
Well, I was hoping to find a release date, but I had no such luck. I am excited about the possibility that Toonami will be airing the show, though. I’ll keep everyone updated when I find more news~
