As the highly anticipated "Sailor Moon" reboot titled "Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal" prepares for its July release date, more updates of the remake have surfaced.

Recently, the 2014 Anime Japan occurred in Japan to great success, and the first glimpse of "Sailor Moon Crystal" appeared via a small booth at the convention.

The annual Tokyo anime convention was attended by Moon Kitty on YouTube, who took a video of the festivities.

In the video, you can see a Sailor Moon booth using the newly released reboot artwork for "Sailor Moon Crystal."

Although the booth was small, no doubt the fandom will explode once the reboot launches in July.

According to ComicsAlliance, "Sailor Moon Crystal" is designed to be a tighter adaptation of the Naoko Takeuchi manga.

"Usagi Tsukino is a second-year middle school girl who is a little clumsy and a crybaby, but she is full of energy. One day, she meets Luna, a black cat with a crescent moon on her forehead, and she transforms into Sailor Moon, a sailor-uniformed pretty guardian of love and justice!" says the official series synopsis.

"As a chosen guardian of justice, Usagi seems to have a mission to find the Illusionary Silver Crystal with the other guardians and to protect the princess. Meanwhile, the queen of the Dark Kingdom, Queen Beryl, also sends minions to the town where Usagi lives to obtain the Illusionary Silver Crystal, which has immense power. This causes strange events to unfold. Can Sailor Moon really find the Illusionary Silver Crystal with the other Sailor guardians, and protect the princess…!?"

Meanwhile, a "Sailor Moon" musical is also expected to run sometime this summer, possibly in conjunction with the reboot.
