Confirmation of new SM releases for 2012.

Many thanks to Ochibawolf and Peter for sharing the image with us!

Well what do you know! The news I was starting to seriously doubt was true came back to bite me in the butt, because here it is: Confirmation that we are indeed getting a Japanese re-release of the mangas in a 11 volume set (one senshi per volume) and a Memorial DVD set (also one for each senshi). I was able to read some of the contents, particularly the part that mentions they will be coming out in NOVEMBER, not in October as we previously thought, but our way more talented friend Elly from MissDream.org was able to translate it pretty fast! (SHE IS SO GOOD!) These are her tweets:

"Manga and DVDs being released on special edition collector sets, each will have 11 volumes. New manga box set will feature updated artwork and "bonus" material (probably meaning stickers or furoku items). The Sailor Moon Channel will be updating with news related to the production work for the new anime and other news items related to it. 

New Sailor Moon anime is currently in production, SCHEDULED for a release in summer 2013 (which makes me think the release date isn't final).

Then there's a recap of what the series is about, and then adverts for the shinsoubon editions of the manga and codename: Sailor V.

That section about Momoiro Clover Z is a pain in the ass because the picture is so small, BUT...The blurb is just a recap of a line from the 20th anniversary announcement video, just abridged:

"Ever since I was little I wanted to be in anime. I always wanted to be just like Usagi. This new anime makes me so happy!"

So basically, the girls from Momoiro Clover Z are just dressing up for fun. Pic is probably from Japan Expo if I had to guess.

And there you have it Moonies! It might not affect us directly in the US or World market because we won't be officially getting any of this, but we might be seeing some MUCH NEEDED new artwork and of course, hardcore collectors will want to get some of these sets as well, so I'm sharing all the info we have. Will keep you posted when we know more.
