So as I have posted here and there, I am happy that a new generation will get to see, read, wear and love Sailor Moon and I can’t wait for the inevitable flood of newbie questions we’ll all be fielding soon. And then in the second wave, as we build into a new generation of fans, will come. The Drama. Oh the lols we will have. Be kind to your Kohai.
Oh BTW no “official” announcement at the Otakon Fumi or Kodansha panels either, Kay guys, You open the panel with a phrase from Sailor Moon and then say nothing? really?
One last thing, an unsubstantiated rumor about a new live action series debuting this month in japan, not even gona link that one, no one believes it. I will keep my eye on it though, you know? :3
