Praise be to the moon god. IT’S FINALLY HERE! Today, fans of Sailor Moon got their first look at the new anime, “Sailor Moon Crystal,” the reboot of the entire franchise, which begins airing July 5th.
Of course, when a cherished, nostalgic, and altogether life-changing anime gets redone, there’s gonna be a couple of squeaky wheels. Let’s face it: long time fans of the franchise have TWENTY YEARS of nerd feels about Sailor Moon! We all have memories of how it shaped what we thought anime was, or how it changed our lives. Hell, my username since I was 13 has been “IAMCHUBBYBUNNY” specifically because I identified with Usagi’s clumsiness and was so in love with Sailor Moon. (Spoiler: I’m 32 now so that’s a realllllyyyy long freaking time to stick with a name as silly as that!)
