Yesterday was the 20th anniversary of Sailor Moon and, in an anniversary event, a New Sailor Moon anime was announced. Squee! No major details as of yet, we don’t know if the original voice actresses will be returning, but everyone is still in the business, except of course, Seiya’s voice actress, Shiho Niiyama, who passed away in 2000. There are plans for the series to have simultaneous world-wide release, something that made me sigh in relief. Right now they are angling for a summer 2013 release date. Personally, if it were me, I’d just start with the whole team, say two years later, and start in on a new series, new bad guys, etc.
From YNN Correspondent Yaritza H., we learn that the “to commemorate the release of Aoi Hana Vol. 7, they are going to hold an exhibit with the Enoshima Electric Railway. The information comes straight from the Manga Erotics F website.”

JManga will be doing a Panel with Publisher’s Weekly’s Calvin Reid and Deb Aoki and JManga’s own Robert Newman at San Diego Comic-Con on the ‘Future of Digital Manga’. They are giving away prizes and making announcements about this summer’s Yuri projects and, I am totally guessing, but, probably about their iOS app. The Panel is on Friday, July 13 at 11:00-12:00 in Room 25ABC. Prizes will be goods from Akihabara, JManga points and a new iPad! I think this panel is definitely a do-not-miss if you can make it, do. Report back.
And, if you missed me on the Huffington Post’s discussion “Is Coming Out Passe’?”, here’s the link to the recording. I come on at about 12:30.
That’s all the excitement I can take in one week.
