The female idol group Momoiro Clover Z confirmed during the Sailor Moon 20th Anniversary Event #2 on Sunday that the new Sailor Moon anime will stream worldwide simultaneously this winter. In addition, the idol group will sing both the opening and the ending theme songs for the new anime. The anime will stream on Niconico.
Momoiro Clover Z, publisher Kodansha, and Sailor Moon manga creator Naoko Takeuchi had announced the new anime adaptation of the manga last summer. Momoiro Clover Z had also announced at that time that they would perform at least one theme song for the new anime.
Fumio Osano, the Sailor Moon manga's Kodansha editor who is known by his nickname "Osabu," confirmed in April that the new Sailor Moon anime has been delayed from the previously announced release window of summer 2013. The solicitation sheet for new Sailor Moon super-deformed swinging keychains had teased, "New anime starts??" in the December 2013-January 2014 window.
Osano added during Sunday's event that the staff cannot announce the voice cast yet. He also indicated that the new anime would not be a remake of the earlier Sailor Moon anime.
