Sailor Moon Crystal is a new Sailor Moon anime made for the 20th anniversary.
Sailor Moon Crystal (or Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal) is the 2014 Animated Adaptation of Naoko Takeuchi's seminal Magical Girl Warrior manga Sailor Moon. Sailor Moon Crystal is not a remake of the iconic and much-beloved original 90's anime. Instead, Toei Animation considers it a reboot.
Sailor Moon Crystal follows the plot of the manga more closely than the 1990's anime and updates the franchise for the 21st century within a next generation series. Toei Animation announced the series in 2012 in time for the 20th anniversary of Sailor Moon.
