The ever mysterious "Sailor Moon" revival may see the light of day near or after August 2013, with new Sailor Moon-themed toy figures being released in Japan that month to commemorate Bandai's 20th anniversary S.H. Figuarts.

Currently, promotional videos and banners for the item is going strong in Akihabara, Japan.


Voiced by Kotono Mitsuishi, the actress who voiced Sailor Moon in the popular anime series, does this mean the revival will follow the launch of the figures?

S.H. Figuarts, a subsidiary of Bandi Co., Ltd, is a Japanese toy making and video game company that features iconic Japanese animated series such as "Dragon Ball" and "Kamen Rider Blade."

"[S.H. Figuarts] characters represent the pursuit of the moving human form," writes the company on its official Facebook page.

Only the Sailor Moon and Sailor Mercury figures have been seen in ads and early prototypes. The 14cm figures cost roughly 4410 yen ($45).

"I have just seen the prototypes for the Sailor Mercury and she is looking awesome," wrote Facebook and "Sailor Moon" fan Ryan Morrison.

As of now, expect S.H. Figuarts to release the "Sailor Moon" figures in August, with Bluefine Tamashii USA to import them to America around the same time.

Here's to hoping this means the "Sailor Moon" revival will land in 2013, or possibly fall.
