Sailor Moon Crystal Gets Its First Trailer

Sailor Moon Crystal, the much-anticipated revival of the much-loved anime classic Sailor Moon is only a few weeks away. Due to stream worldwide every other week starting July 5th, it's getting very close now. So, it's just as well that the producers have finally given us our first proper look at the new series courtesy of the first promo video on the show's official site. The (Japanese) clip is short on actual footage, but it gives you a chance to see the much shinier animation in action. If this sneak-peak is anything to go on, it looks pretty true to the original manga while bringing it into the 21st century. There's a particularly nice water-colour look to the backgrounds too.

The following synopsis is from the official series website:

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…!?
Sailor Moon Crystal will be released in North America by Viz Media.
