Toei Animation has released its first image for the new Sailor Moon anime, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal, complete with a synopsis and an official title.
Anime News Network provided the following synopsis:
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…!?
The official Sailor Moon website also released a countdown timer, which is set to start a countdown in four days. What this timer is counting down for is not yet clear, but fans are nevertheless teeming with curiosity.
