[Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal]

Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal 2014 anime

Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal premiered on 5th July 2014 at (6AM EST) and is streamed simultaneously worldwide online for free via Hulu/Neon Alley, Crunchyroll, AnimeLab and NicoNico. It will be aired on the first and third Saturday of every month (not necessarily fortnightly)!

It is a fresh reboot and not a continuation of the old 90s anime. Naoko Takeuchi (original creator) is heavily involved in the new production so the story & character designs follow closely to the manga.

    Getting stoked for this. I only wonder exactly how faithful it’ll be this time around.

    • Chibi Jennifer April 25, 2014 at 8:34 am #

      Should be pretty faithful since Naoko Takeuchi is heavily involved I hear~

  2. Sailor Ninjago April 23, 2014 at 11:12 pm #

    Lookin’ forward.Too bad I need to waste my eye sight by reading the subtitles too much ;(

    • Chibi Jennifer April 25, 2014 at 8:30 am #

      It’s still better than no subtitles :3 Maybe one day if it’s popular they’ll be dubbed versions, though I personally prefer watching it in Japanese with English subs.

  3. Jolanda April 21, 2014 at 10:17 pm #

    Is she ‘holding’ her Star Seed?
    Just asking.

    • Michiko April 22, 2014 at 3:43 pm #

      Not a star seed, it’s the Silver Crystal. Though I guess it would be easy to mistake it for a Star Seed.

      • Jolanda April 23, 2014 at 1:40 am #

        Whoops! Gomen, gomen! XD

      • Chibi Jennifer April 23, 2014 at 1:03 pm #

        I suppose early on the concept of the Star Seed hasn’t been introduced yet~ so for the purpose of not spoiling the last season, it’s the Silver Crystal and nothing else..*cough* XD

    • Chibi Jennifer April 23, 2014 at 1:01 pm #

      It’s my understanding that the Silver Crystal is her Star Seed :3 The Silver Crystal seems to take various forms and it also appeared in the ‘R’ movie as a flower :)

      • Michiko April 23, 2014 at 4:53 pm #

        It could very well be that. I ended up thinking about that when I got up XD
        I don’t think the Silver Crystal was actually explained in depth about whether or not it was Usagi’s star seed.

        • Chibi Jennifer April 25, 2014 at 8:29 am #

          In Sailor Stars in the episode where Usagi’s Star Seed is taken, the title was “The Silver Crystal is Stolen! Princess Kakyuu Appears” I think that’s a pretty good indication it’s the same thing :)

  4. SailorStar9 April 16, 2014 at 1:47 am #

    Well, I’m crossing my fingers that it won’t be as awful as Saint Seiya Omega.

  5. smithers456 April 12, 2014 at 10:11 pm #

    Very cute drawing. :) <3

  6. gabrielleandhita April 5, 2014 at 8:27 am #

    There’s actually a leak of the trailer 2014 SM if you goggle it >.<

    • Chibi Jennifer April 5, 2014 at 8:27 am #

      How can you be sure it’s official/legit and not fan made? There’s a lot of unofficial ones…

      • gabrielleandhita April 5, 2014 at 8:28 am #

        because there is the copyright of Toei animation 2013. but it is not the full intro, it is only like 1 minute tho.

        • Chibi Jennifer April 5, 2014 at 8:30 am #

          Unfortunately that is fan-made, it’s 100% unofficial.

          • gabrielleandhita April 5, 2014 at 8:33 am #

            ah ic, thanks for confirming it. It’s good to wait for the surprise of the new official Sailor Moon trailer =).
            I love your comic strips, they really make my day. How long have you been doing this? Keep it up! =D

          • Chibi Jennifer April 5, 2014 at 8:34 am #

            No problem! ^___^

            5 Years now actually ^^

  7. Star Lights Lover April 4, 2014 at 3:10 pm #

    Can’t wait sailor moon is my favorite anime/manga of all time so I am super happy!!

  8. TheOneandOnlyGeek April 4, 2014 at 10:51 am #

    Finally. It was supposed to come out last Summer.

  9. MaxHD2490 April 1, 2014 at 11:06 pm #

    having Crystal in the title is nice and sounds pretty too.

  10. Crystal March 24, 2014 at 9:26 am #

    I’m kind of new to the video streaming process, does anyone know if Sailor Moon Crystal will stream free, or do you need to pay to watch it? I don’t mind paying (especially for Sailor Moon ^^) I just didn’t know what the deal is.

    • Chibi Jennifer March 24, 2014 at 10:10 am #

      Hi Crystal!
      Unfortunately it’s not known yet whether or not it will be free. Just have to wait for future announcements to be sure. I’m hoping it will be free!

      • Leo March 26, 2014 at 6:01 pm #

        I think niconico will be streaming the first episode free. At least that is what I THINK the website said. My japanese is not perfect xD….

        • Chibi Jennifer March 26, 2014 at 6:35 pm #

          hmmm..I don’t recall that being announced ^^”

  11. FalloutGirl97 March 22, 2014 at 3:49 am #

    YAAAAYYYYYY!!!!! do you know what channel it would be on?????
    (btw I have dish)

    • Chibi Jennifer March 22, 2014 at 3:58 am #

      No channels yet~ It’s only been announced that it will be viewable online on a video streaming site :)

  12. TheFartingButterfly March 18, 2014 at 9:05 am #

    while i love the old anime, i’m so excited for the new one!

    • Chibi Jennifer March 18, 2014 at 9:06 am #

      Yeah, I recently rewatched the entire 90s anime and it was awesoomme :} Really hoping the new one will live up to our insanely high expectations XDDD

      • TheFartingButterfly March 19, 2014 at 1:28 pm #

        ahhhh now i want to rewatch it! i always found it interesting how the anime changed over time. haha, everyone has super high expectations for the new anime! i’m sure it’ll be amazing though~

    • ebonrouge March 17, 2014 at 7:17 pm #

      Sorry, didn’t know I couldn’t post images. Someone requested for an arm wiggle of the image and I obliged. Full credit to you of course and submitted somewhere in the vindictus forums.

      • Chibi Jennifer March 17, 2014 at 7:51 pm #

        ahahaha! That’s actually pretty funny XDD
        But.. I would’ve preferred you didn’t remove the credits at the bottom of the image ;_;

  13. Delight046 March 17, 2014 at 11:25 am #

    LOL, usagi’s face!

    The caption should be….

    Usagi: Crystal…why are you not in my compact?! GET BACK HERE!!!
    Crystal: LOL~ NOPE~

  14. nova March 17, 2014 at 10:44 am #

    That picture should be made into a little omake animation! Like a gag reel ;)

    Recently became obsessed with Sailor Moon again, so this is very timely. =) Crossing my fingers that the show doesn’t get delayed again. It better be July for real! I don’t think my heart could take more delays >.<

    • Chibi Jennifer March 17, 2014 at 10:58 am #

      haha yeah, it looks like July will be happening :)! It’s a good sign that we finally get to see something!

      • nova March 17, 2014 at 1:28 pm #

        I wonder if it’ll be a 12 – 13 episode run? That seems to be the trend these days, and if they try to stick to the manga with no fillers, it might be best that way. Man, I hope this does well and they make the Sailor V series into a short run! (And the other specials, not just Ami’s). *cross fingers*

        • Chibi Jennifer March 17, 2014 at 1:50 pm #

          I would like it to be longer, but if they really make it 12-13 episodes without any fillers like you say and it’s super amazing I don’t mind :) Quality over quantity!

          Still… can only dream of the outer senshi and stars being included too :}

  15. RambitionRW March 16, 2014 at 11:01 pm #

    I am somewhat excited yet also scared to see the new series. Yeah, the comics were good but they were nothing like the original, they were so much more…dark. idk, maybe that’s just me, I mean I am gonna watch it <3 but idk how to feel yet.

    great work uwu looks just like the anime title, just in moonsticks style XD

    • Chibi Jennifer March 17, 2014 at 9:14 am #

      haha thanks ^__^

      Yeah, I totally understand how you feel~ I think we’re all a little nervous about how it will turn out since it is our beloved series after all :3 It’s natural to hope it doesn’t get ruined, especially when we’ve waited so long for this. I guess we can only hope and also try to manage our expectations so we avoid being disappointed too.

      • RambitionRW March 17, 2014 at 11:25 am #

        true true. glad to see someone agrees :)

  16. Niarahime March 16, 2014 at 3:17 pm #

    This is adorable! A great job reproducing the official image in your style- I love it! And I can’t wait till July. =D

    • Chibi Jennifer March 16, 2014 at 3:18 pm #

      Thanks so much Niarahime =D It is making me a lot more excited since seeing official imagery!

      • Niarahime March 16, 2014 at 3:37 pm #

        Same here. It’s really happening! ^^

  17. millicent01 March 16, 2014 at 2:00 pm #

    haha i love this

    • Chibi Jennifer March 16, 2014 at 2:02 pm #

      I’m glad you do ^_^ Thanks for the comment millicent01!

  18. Boro March 16, 2014 at 1:13 pm #

    looks like she’s trying hard to reach the crystal, but can’t.

  19. juggierocksXP March 16, 2014 at 10:32 am #

    Can’t wait for the new anime. Hell I’m saving up money to go to AnimeExpo just to get my volume 1 of Sailor Moon and Codename:Sailor V manga signed by the english voice actors though I wish it was the original VA

    • Chibi Jennifer March 16, 2014 at 10:33 am #

      That’s great! :D Yeah, there’s still no news on the voice acting cast yet, but I do hope the seiyuu will be the same as the original (Japanese)

    Nailed it~

  24. Jorge March 16, 2014 at 9:18 am #

    lol is this like a new season or show of sailor moon?

    • Chibi Jennifer March 16, 2014 at 9:20 am #

      Brand new anime :) Not sure how many seasons there will be yet

      • Rachel March 16, 2014 at 9:23 am #

        It sounds like they’re just reanimating the same content though? The Queen Beryl saga?…I kinda expected new content..but I guess they have to introduce the origin story to a new generation lol

        • Chibi Jennifer March 16, 2014 at 9:26 am #

          It’s the Dark Kingdom Saga again but the manga storyline is pretty different to the old anime :)

  25. Kanou March 16, 2014 at 9:14 am #

    so cute!

  26. Avvangarda March 16, 2014 at 9:13 am #

    lol cute xD

  27. Wishesonthemoon March 16, 2014 at 9:12 am #

    Yeah! :D

  28. Eric March 16, 2014 at 2:54 am #

    I just hope that when it starts airing it’ll be full length episodes and not this five-minute mini-episode crap that a lot of other shows that’ve been online only have done.

    • Chibi Jennifer March 16, 2014 at 9:03 am #

      Let’s hope so too! :) Personally, I feel like that’s unlikely~

  29. SailorStar9 March 15, 2014 at 7:00 pm #

    Thank god it isn’t ‘Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon KAI’!

  30. DarkLies212 March 15, 2014 at 4:02 pm #

    AYAYAYAY <3

  31. Jeishii March 15, 2014 at 3:44 pm #

    lol Saw this on Twitter. Looooving iiiiiit.

  32. Crystal Queen March 15, 2014 at 12:00 pm #

    I like how you made it with your animation style. I love the new promo pic! XD

    • Chibi Jennifer March 15, 2014 at 12:05 pm #

      Thanks Crystal Queen ^^ Yeah, the new artwork looks gorgeous :3

      • Crystal Queen March 15, 2014 at 10:40 pm #

        I can’t wait for a trailer!!!!!!!! -dance-

    • lisa March 15, 2014 at 10:52 pm #

      More funny drawings please :D I expect more drawing of usagiXSeiya since it is my favourite couple !

      Hope the new animation will be great as a big development of Usagi& seiya relation . sadly,I heard they will follow the comic’s script T.T and ending will remain the same.

      • Chibi Jennifer March 16, 2014 at 9:02 am #

        haha, as much as I love Usagi x Seiya, I doubt the new anime will focus more on Usagi/Seiya than the original 90s anime, especially since it’s following more of the manga plot. Seiya and the Starlights play quite a small role in. We still don’t know whether we would get to the final season, but I sure hope so :D!

  33. Crystal Matos March 15, 2014 at 11:51 am #

    Cute hehe

    so nice. could you draw something with helios? or something with jadeite? (i loved him when I was a kid XD)

  47. Mikey186 March 15, 2014 at 7:45 am #

    Let’s hope in 7 days, there will be a sneak peak animation. Hope the animation style is the same as the Sailor Stars (it was epic though compared to SuperS Movie)

    • Chibi Jennifer March 15, 2014 at 7:47 am #

      I hope so too! But I have a feeling the new artwork, title and logo is about all we’ll get, seeing as they’ve now taken down the countdown timer from their webpage >.<

      • Yosei-chan March 15, 2014 at 7:56 am #

        What’s the address of the site? :o

      • Mikey186 March 15, 2014 at 7:57 am #

        I think it’s just a promo art, sweetie. Looks can be different. You won’t even see it until the countdown is up and shows the official screencaps.

        • Chibi Jennifer March 15, 2014 at 7:58 am #

          Fingers crossed ^_^

          • Mikey186 March 15, 2014 at 8:27 am #

            I always have my fingers crossed. Lol.

  48. Jess-chan March 15, 2014 at 7:35 am #

    How prettyful!! Can’t wait for the new anime now! It’ll be like a sorta birthday gift to me xD
