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.
