- It has been confirmed that the new Sailor Moon anime will premiere in July 2014
- It will stream simultaneously worldwide online via NicoNico.
- The online streaming of the episodes will be subtitled in 10 languages all of which will have the original Japanese audio.
- This second anime adaptation ofBishōjo Senshi Sailor Moon is not remaking the previous anime, but adapting Naoko Takeuchi’s original manga and starting from scratch again.
- The band Momoiro Clover Z will be singing the opening and closing theme songs.
- The CD has been formally announced – However more information is still due to drop.
- TOEI will be in charge of animation.
- Atsutoshi Umezawa is the producer of the series.

Naturally there is still a lot to be found out about the series including basic info such as what the animation style will be, what voice actors are secured and how many episodes the series will run for; but good things come to those who wait, right moonies?
