So, I’ve seen this image floating around lately where people seem to make each other believe it’s the new and first official art for the Sailor Moon 2013 reboot.
As of writing this, there is no official Sailor Moon 2013 art yet.
The illustration above was drawn June 2012 by a random pixiv artist, and if you’re Precure fan, you can easily tell that it’s a Smile Precure Parody of Usagi Tsukino.
I hope a lot of people get to see this post so they don’t go around believing a parody fanart illustration is an official artwork.

While we’re at it, I’d like to inform you all that Fumio Osano, Sailor Moon’s editor, has announced that the reboot might be delayed. It is not cancelled, but simply delayed for an unknown time. They are working hard on it and keep thanking the fans for being patient. Let’s all be grateful that they are doing it at all. (ノ)´・ω・`(ヾ) ♡♡
