NEW SAILOR MOON WILL STREAM SIMULTANEOUSLY WORLDWIDE THIS WINTER
This is obviously old news, but I was thinking about Sailor Moon today and wondered when the new series would air, and I found this post on The Mary Sue from back in August. I don’t know about you all, but I’m excited!
First the bad news. The new Sailor Moon anime that was announced last year will be ready to air this winter, not this summer, as planned. The good news is that the new anime will not air only in Japan. It was announced at the Sailor Moon 20th Anniversary Event #2 that the new show, which was announced at last yearâ€™s Anniversary Event, will be available to stream worldwide when it airs, allowing fans in many countries to enjoy more crime fighting and magic from the Sailor Senshi.
The new series is set to air sometime between December of this year and January of 2014, but there are very few details other than air dates. It is know that the Niconico streaming service will host the series. According to Kodansha editor Fumio Osano, the new Sailor Moon anime will not be a remake of the original, 20-year-old series. Instead the series will explore new plots, which may lead some fans to wonder it their favorite moments and relationships will return to the series. We personally want to see more of Haruka and Michiru.
Right now, it is even unclear how the voice cast is coming together. Last year, when the new anime was announced, voice actors from the original series, including Kotono Mitsuishi, voice of Sailor Moon or Usagi Tsukino, as well as Toru Furuya, voice of Tuxedo Mask or Mamoru Chiba, were in attendance at the Anniversary Event. Given their involvement in recent Sailor Moon events, many have hoped the actors would return to the series to voice their characters once again, but at this point, there are no guarantees. Fortunately, fans worldwide wonâ€™t have to wait very long to judge the new series for themselves.
It was also revealed at the Anniversary Event this year that the show would receive an opening and closing theme from, appropriately, a girl idol group called Momoiro Clover Z. For now, we have a relatively short wait for the show, and a much shorter wait than if streaming were not an option. If nothing else, itâ€™s nice that we wonâ€™t have to try and find poor quality subs on shady sites to enjoy our favorite magical girl group.

I follow The Nerdist channel on Youtube and this little gem was posted the other day.
I brought up yesterday to Pamela and Amanda, that I thought it would be neat to have a DIY day every week (probably Fridays). It’s not official yet, but until it is, I wanted to share this nerdy DIY video from the Geek & Sundry Vlog channel and since it happens to be Friday…
