Sailor Moon is getting a new anime, I'm not sure if that means they are doing a total reboot and going back to more of the manga or what have you. (Not that the old Anime is bad, but I do look forward to a fresh look.) In the past, Sailor Moon a.k.a Princess Serenity's ( Sailor Moon has greek/roman myths incorporated into it.) kingdom is at war because she fell in love with a man from Earth. This man, Endymion, has an admirer thats affections are not returned. Turned down, Beryl is taken over by the sinister demon Metalia. Long story short a Romeo and Juliet scenero is born, Sailor Moon's lover and friends all die at the hands of Metalia. (The generals are still on Endymions side, they are turned later because their jewels are found by evil queen Metalia) Distraught, Sailor Moon kills herself with the "Moon Sword" (not sure accurate name) that is made for the leader of the senshi team. Her Mother, Queen Serenity uses her life-force to not only seal away the demon Queen Metalia, but to grant her beloved daughter the chance at a second life several hundred years in the future. I drew several characters, even Sailor Deimos and Phobos in crow form are in the front to frame the picture.

Sorry for the long winded explination, but a lot of my family is not Moonie-friendly and does not understands.

Please full view for more details, do not use without my permission. Thank you!

Awesome job and take on what happened. A lot of the picture shows what happened in the manga, but I see you've improvised a bit.

I like that you kept Pluto and Saturn in this, but sadly in the manga they weren't there. Neither was Uranus and Neptune. In the anime we originally saw shadowy figures in bubbles looking somewhat like Neptune and Uranus, which was a foreshadowing on the producers part ^^

In the manga, the only outer to have been reborn was Saturn. Sailor Pluto remained at the gates, unable to take part despite how much she wanted too. She enters the arc in the gates but she becomes a part of the "Group" only when she dies by breaking the greatest taboo of stopping time, after she broke the first taboo, by leaving the gates. Neo Queen Serenity gives her a chance at a new life in the past, so technically she dies in the future, to be reborn in the present. I always thought that was nifty ^^

Neptune and Uranus had never left their posts, until their talismans start to resonate with one another again, and they sense the presence of outside intruders, which is their territory because they were gifted with the responsibility to protect the moon kingdom from afar from outside intrusions while the inners were gifted with the responsibility of protecting the kingdom from within. They always longed to be closer to their Queen and Princess and coming to earth in this new era, to do their duty close to her made them happy. They never died, weird huh? Vagueness is Naoko's strength and key to manga, and their "wealth" and "fortune" was one of those things c; Setsuna, Michiru and Haruka made up their own last names, and had referenced the meaning of their names jokingly.

Saturn, sweet lil Hotaru was actually the one to destroy the last remnants of the Silver Millennium, not Metallia. During the end, the three talismans awoke Saturn. Saturn is only awakened when all hope is gone. That's why Pluto, Uranus and Neptune had wanted to kill her. People often think her powers are of rebirth and reborn and that was a very poor translation, among many bad translations lol. Her power to destroy the world is actually called "Death Ribbon Revolution" because of the many thin black ribbons that stem from her Glaive of Silence. Her power is not of rebirth but instead apocalyptic and she has the responsibility to end/kill everything when no hope is left. She was only reborn through Sailor Moons power. Moon life/Saturn death. I love Saturn, because Chibiusa and Usagi's faith in her, kind of give her, her own sense of hope and she realizes she doesn't have a power based off hopelessness but the power to protect (Silence Wall) and the power to heal (But it vastly weakens her, much like Death Ribbon Revolution Kills her should she use it, hence why her blade is "double sided") and her last power Silence Glaive Surprise which in the manga was an offensive attack but doesn't end everything.

I love the anime to but I've been wanted a remake for six years and WOOHOO! We're getting it YEY!

Your art was marvelously done, that part in the manga where Serenity stabs herself was such a... powerful scene. It was one of my favorites! I have the old manga but I'd like to get the refurbished ones Naoko released. The condenced version is slightly different then my older copies and she updated a bit of the art on the inside as well, like Jupiter's belt C: not apart of the original. I'm a fanatic lol I know everything about Sailor Moon. My brother got me into Sailor Moon, and I'm happy that I have something that makes me happy when I think of him. He died and Sailor Moon is a happy memory of him for me.

Great job and hope to see more soon!

I'm sure you know what happened in the manga, I just love discussing it so much because, well, no one alive in my life likes Sailor Moon :c or anime and I can only discuss it like this in Deviantart, so I get a lil carried away lol sorry.

I am going to be completely honest, while I did know that the outers were not apart of the battle on the moon I did NOT know that it was Saturn who destroyed the Silver Millennium. This information was all very inspiring and helpful and I'd loooooooooove to have a talk with you on sailor moon history/lore sometime. I'm a big ol' moonie too and while I like bending the rules a bit (by having the outers in this pic) I also like to know the actual-goings-on.

Right now I am kind of facinated by Endymion/Mamoru's past. What his country was like, Elysion, the generals, helios, etc. I used to dislike Mamoru as a child, but I've grown more fond of him over the years. Especially as I get older and re-read the manga. I truly hope this anime is inspiring... I can't wait!

I like bending the rules too ^^ I write fanfiction and when it comes to Sailor Moon, it's almost always a crossover lol

I felt bad for Saturn, the manga went into more depth with her. In the manga when she was reborn her mother was killed in a horrible fire that happened because of her father's horrendous experiments to create a "super human" while Hotaru was very young. Most of her body was destroyed and burnt in the fire and he replaced a vast majority of her body with android parts, thus why she wore leggings under her skirt and long sleeves all of the time, to hide the mechanical scars that are the result of becoming her fathers personal experiment. Unlike in the anime, her father truly was just an evil person, not someone who was merely possessed. Though he was possessed lol but still evil. It was so sad, what happened to her. The art in the manga where she was hanging from the walls by wires broke my heart and even more when she was underdressing and Chibiusa saw her mechanical limbs crackling and popping with electricity and ran away horrified, it made me tear :C

I love all the senshi so much, Usagi however is undoubtedly my favorite though.

I used to hate Mamoru too but only because the dub made him so darn hateble lol it wasn't easy to like him, same with Chibiusa. I used to hate her, but I like her in the manga.

I do love the old anime(subbed only)for things like the Naru/Nephrite that wasn't apart of the manga. It was so sweet and when he died I BALLED! Especially in the subbed version. Her scream at the end was so heart wrenching! That actress did an amazing job with making the emotion of the moment coming to life, and Mars, Mercury and Moon all teary eyed... chills lol
[link]

I'm looking forward the better art and a more manga like version but the old will remain in my heart too c:

We should definitely chat more about SM cause I LOVE this series the most!

Mamoru and Helios share the same heart and soul, Helios was the priest of Elysian and Endymoin was the prince. they are two halfs of the same whole, if Endymoin dies, so does Helios and if Helios dies so does Endymoin. Nehelania was in love with Helios, and he refused her much like Endymoin and Beryl.

Kinda funny how Chibusa falls for Helios after crushing on her past "dad" the majority of time. It's like the saying how daughters tend to find guys like their fathers lol though I wouldn't since my sperm donor was a horrible person. Interesting to think about though c;

My favorite is Sailor Moon/Gundam Wing but I love a whole bunch of others. I have a lot of old stories I need to remake but I'm currently only trying to work on my GW/SM crossovers I have posted on FF.N on my Nerf-or-Nothing account. I have five in progress but only three are the main focus because I have to redo the other two. I have to edit them all for some series errors too :/

I think Chibi Usa in the manga is more like what a young Usagi would have been like if we would have seen her. Except more polite...I can see Usagi being a little more IN YOUR FACE. heehee

I have a love hate relationship with the Anime. I love certain aspects of it, I hate that the english version tried to change the sexuality, I hate that they tried to make a love triangle with mars/tux/moon, I hate that the senshi disliked Usagi as a sailor/person, I hate how Tuxedo Mask was rather weak, and I hate how certain characters were portrayed in a more unflattering light.

I think what I hope to see in the new anime are these negatives gone added with the bonus of possible NEW information and less dumbing down due to what society thinks we should watch. :(

I really hope the new anime is more like the manga all around even down to Pluto's skin tone, the Starlights being crossdressing girls and the Four Generals being of Endymoins court instead of just evil minions. I WANT SO MUCH!

I absolutely hate the dubbed version of Sailor Moon but I do enjoy the subtitled Japanese make of the anime. What's so great is WE GET TWO! WE GET BOTH!!! WOOOHOOO!!! So many versions means so many fans which means MORE FANFICTION AND ART!!!! WOOOOO!

No one else other then me in my family is a Moonie. I had a devil of a time explaining the henshin sequences to my mom. She kept asking 'why is the leotard cut so high up? Why doesn't it cover more of her butt? Who in their right mind thinks that a cut THAT high in a leotard is appropriate for a fourteen year old girl?! Who in their right mind thinks the length of the skirts are appropriate?! Their skirts are way too short and look trashy!' Don't get me started on the appearance of Serenity first thing out of my mother's mouth was 'Why didn't they draw the front of the dress a little higher to cover her cleavage?! That's inappropriate for a fourteen year old young lady! She shouldn't be showing her tits at that young an age!' It gets worse when I TRIED explaining 'Usagi is Princess Serenity of the Silver Millennium,she killed herself in the Manga because she couldn't live without Endymion. In the Anime Metalia killed Endymion and Serenity.Usagi doesn't remember Mamoru being Endymion until her memories of her past life come back but they are dating in Sailor Moon Romance' Her response 'Who WRITES these things?! This is ridiculous! A fourteen year old dating a College MAN?! Where are her parents? She's in Junior High School and he's in what College University?! That's statutory rape!' I'm like 'No mom,they don't get married until LATER when Usagi's in her 20's! She's at least 21/22 when her daughter Small Lady Princess Serenity is born in 30th Century Crystal Tokyo!' her answer 'Who the hell is Small Lady Princess Serenity? What the hell is Crystal Tokyo? Where the hell do people get these places?! When the hell did it become the norm to vividly describe places that don't exist in reality? Why the hell is a fourteen year old eighth grader dating an adult MAN without her parents consent?! Where the hell are the authorities and why the hell are they not arresting this pervert?'

I was still going through High School when Sailor Moon came on tv and my uniform skirt was the exact same length as Sailor Moons Skirt well maybe two inches longer but when I stood up it was the exact same length and since I was always home for lunch I could watch it at noon.

After my mom bitched about the length of the Senshi skirt I stood up and said 'Well I've gotta jet and get back to school before the next period starts and I'm late.' of course the first thing mom's eyes do is go straight to my skirt and first thing out of her mouth? 'Ahhh! Your skirt is so short! Why isn't it like all the skirts on the other girls at your school?' my dad's reply from the kitchen island without ever looking up from his laptop was 'Hon she's over five foot five round about five eight with her dress shoes on,the skirt's hem will hang higher on her then it does on everyone else. That doesn't mean it's the wrong skirt for her school,it just means she's taller then the other girls her age. Don't forget she had a growth spurt shortly after getting her uniform for this year so the skirt IS going to appear shorter then normal. Measure it from the waist band to the hem and you'll find out it's the right length.'

Did she listen to dad? No she started to panic and grabbed her measuring tape from her knitting kit and measured from the waist band down and says 'I don't get it! It's exactly the right length but it's so SHORT! When you get home I'm making you a new school skirt that will hit you in the knee caps the way it's supposed to.'

I said 'By the time I get home,you will be at the office in a board meeting until well past two a.m. dad will be the only one home and remember you CAN'T FOLLOW A SIMPLE SCHOOL SKIRT PATTERN TO SAVE YOUR LIFE! Remember the poodle skirt fiasco of sixth grade when my class did that play set in the 50's? WHO mad the first skirt? You did,who made the new one and stayed up all night to ensure it was right? Dad did. Keep remembering that Poodle Skirt and blouse you made and that should deter you from trying to make a uniform skirt. However dad CAN and I doubt he wants to be making a big deal out of a skirt that is the same length as the next tall girl who is the same height as me. Now look I'm going to be nearly five minutes late if you don't stop and since you're going my way on your way to work and it's raining out,mind giving me a lift to school?'

That shut her up and she said she WASN'T going my way so my dad wound up calling his company's car to take me and my friends back to school.....a nice shiny stretched black limo with gold piping all around it with his company's logo pulling up to the school doors as close as possible to avoid getting us soaked,a tall well proportioned muscled guy gets out from the drivers side,comes around and opens the passenger door to let us out saying 'I'll be back at 7 P.M. Sharp which is when your Volley Ball Practice Ends to take you home again.'

Imagine the envy everyone else who was soaked to the bone had on their faces when they seen that! All I heard was 'Whose limo was that you got out of?' oh the joys I had to say 'My dad's company's limo. Since my dad is Top Cat at the company I'd say it's HIS limo got a problem with it? Take it up with my dad,he didn't always have a limo he used to ferry us around himself but his bosses decided to give him all access to the limo on days when it's too nasty to walk to school.'

Wow! I love the little details in the back like Sailor Pluto trying to save Saturn and the point that the battle is still continuing even with the inner senshis down. I'm excited for the anime though like everyone worried, since it could vary from an abridged like Dragon Ball Z Kai or be completely redone. Though I think in the end us "Moonie" well accept if for it's good and bad. ^w^
