How much cooler would The Avengers have been if the giant alien battle at the end was preceded by a five-minute transformation sequence? Honestly. Also, Victoria at our sister site Geekosystem suggested Nick Fury as Tuxedo Mask, and now I can’t unsee it. I’m going to turn around, and after ten minutes when I turn back if someone hasn’t Photoshopped this I am going to be very disappointed in all of you.
Edit: Victoria herself stepped up to the challenge. Now who’s going to Photoshop an eyepatch, top hat, and swishy cape on Nick Fury? I’m waiting.READ MORE

The official website for the new animated adaptation of Sailor Moon began a countdown to an exciting announcement this week, but was unable to keep fans from discovering their special surprise reveal: a teaser image of the art style, a synopsis, and a production cast listing. So breath deeply, the new anime is still scheduled for a global premiere in July. For more expert commentary on the characteristics of this new art style, we turn to our colleague Victoria McNally at Geekosystem.

…Assuming, that is, that it’s not delayed again. The new Sailor Moon series was originally going to premiere last summer, and then this winter, but now the word is that July will see the long-awaited Sailor Renaissance. The show will air simultaneously worldwide on streaming platform Niconico, where it’ll be subtitled in ten languages. And, just as a reminder, we’re looking at a reboot, not a remake or a sequel. (Such distinctions are important in this day and age.) Explains producer Atsutoshi Umezawa: “This second anime adaptation of Bishojo Senshi Sailor Moon is not remaking that previous anime, but adapting [Naoko Takeuchi's] original manga and starting from scratch again. It is quite a project. The entire staff has been working hard to show everyone an entirely new, so please look forward to it.” Oh, we will.

Star Wars is wonderful. Late-80s and early-90s anime? Also wonderful. This hilarious clip from Nacho Punch, however, makes us glad that we never had to endure a Star Wars/anime fusion. It’s all worth it, though, to see Luke Skywalker transform into a Jedi like he’s Sailor Moon. In the name of the Force, he shall punish you!
