She is the one named Sailor Moon!

Toei Animation posted an image of the new Sailor Moon animation on their official website, which provides a look at the artwork along with the name of the series, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal. 

The highly anticipated series is currently planned to begin airing in July, and will be streamed for audiences around the world through Niconico.

The website also revealed a brief synopsis of the anime:

“Usagi Tsukino is a second-year middle school girl who is a little clumsy and a crybaby, but she is full of energy.  One day, she meets Luna, a black cat with a crescent moon on her forehead, and she transforms into Sailor Moon, a sailor-uniformed pretty guardian of love and justice!  As a chosen guardian of justice, Usagi seems to have a mission to find the Illusionary Silver Crystal with the other guardians and to protect the princess.

Meanwhile, the queen of the Dark Kingdom, Queen Beryl, also sends minions to the town where Usagi lives to obtain the Illusionary Silver Crystal, which has immense power.  This causes strange events to unfold….

Can Sailor Moon really find the Illusionary Silver Crystal with the other Sailor guardians, and protect the princess!?”

A producer of the series noted this series will follow the original manga adaptation, unlike the first series.  The official website has included a countdown with eight days, starting Friday, it’s currently unknown but speculation has begun in forums full of hopes for a visual teaser or trailer to build up fan hype.
