‘Sailor Moon’ Getting New Anime Series In 2013

While the manga began twenty-one years ago, this year is the twentieth anniversary of the Sailor Moon anime franchise and a big event in Japan to celebrate it was streamed live via Nico Nico and it contained some news that many were hopeful and expectant about. A new Sailor Moon anime series will have a worldwide simultaneous airing in the summer of 2013. No details were announced beyond that in regards to how the property created by Naoko Takeuchi will be handled, such as a continuation, re-imagining or straight on new adaptation that hews close to the source material, but we did learn that Momoiro Clover Z will be performing the anime’s theme song.

Well, that was unexpected. There seems to be a surprising number of old franchises being touched upon again recently. Dragonball Z (though Kai isn't strictly speaking a remake), Hunter x Hunter, Lupin III. I wonder what's started off this wave of nostalgia. Everything having their anniversaries, I suppose?

Do we really need these series to be remade for the sake of making more money. Why not just come up with new ideas and let them remain as classics.

What i personally would have preferred is the continuation of some of the anime series that just ended too soon like.

Deadman Wonderland
Elfen Lied
Gunsligner Girl
Black Blood Brothers etc.
