What would you ask her? I would probably ask her

Did she have anything she wanted to include in the manga but decided to scrap?

Did she at some point have plans to extend the series beyond Stars? If so what was planned?

What is the input she had in Sailor Moon Crystal? Was she satisfied with the end product?

How does she feel about the large LGBT fan base that has grown around the franchise?

How about you guys? (I’m anticipating a lot of questions about her wealth and cars P-:)

I have a feeling if I had an interview with Naoko we would just stare at each other for 10 minutes while Moonlight Legend plays in the background and then I just whisper, "Pretty Cure..."

Aside from that I'd ask her if she could pick any three Sailor Senshi to keep, while getting rid of the others, who would they be and why.

"Where is our new Sailor Moon content?"
"Would you be open to letting someone else produce new Sailor Moon content"
"Did she ever consider spinning off any of the Sailor Moon characters"
"Would she do anything different today with her initial stories compared to back then"
"Can we get a Inner Senshi spin off sans Moon?"

My questions are as follows:
  1. Will you ever let the DiC dub be shown and distributed legally?
  2. What would you say to fans of the DiC dub who are disappointed there is no Sailor Moon in the vein they grew up with?
  3. Would you ever be open to a retelling of Sailor Moon set outside of Japan?
  4. What did you think of Toonmakers Sailor Moon (Saban Moon)?
  5. Have you ever thought of appointing a successor to this franchise?
  6. What, really, is the origin of Mysterious 2098 Face?
  7. How much money would it cost to buy Sailor Moon off your hands?

1. What do you think of Sailor Moon's status as a queer icon/cult classic? What inspired you to include queer characters in the series and how do you respond to the criticisms of their portrayals? You've lent Sailor Moon's name and imagery to condoms for a safe-sex campaign; will you lend Uranus and Neptune to a campaign for legalizing same-sex marriage?

2. What's the story with Diana the Moon Fairy? Would you like to see her appear in a future adaptation?

3. If you could change anything about the series, what would it be and why?

4. What is the etymology behind the "Taioron" Crystal?

5. What is the story with Mars and Coronis? Mau and the Moon Kingdom?

6. For once and for all: Are Mars and Venus a couple? Are Saturn and Chibi Moon?

What did you feel when Toei's mishandling of SuperS and Stars made the anime flop and you were able to finally finish the manga? Relief? Or you were sad because Sailor Moon was gone sooner than you expected?

What would it take for you to signed off on a U.S live adaptation series/movie without you having being personally involved?

You mentioned that TOEI’s TV show Bishoujo Kamen Poitrine inspired you to create Sailor V and Sailor Moon. The first volume of “Sailor V” feels a lot like “Poitrine.” Did TOEI ask you to create a magical girl series loosely based on “Poitrine?” Or were you a fan of the show yourself?

Why does Sailor Moon’s Silver Crystal looks identical to the Swarovski candle holder that has the same name, “Silver Crystal?“ Tell us about your relationship with the candle holder and other objects that you love or inspire you.

I can't possibly be the only one that searches the Swarovski store for Silver Crystals on a regular basis whispering "Maboroshi no ginzuishou"... or maybe I am?

I would ask her to please consider writing an act 61 and what her ideas for it might be...

I once considered buying an authentic Swarovski one from eBay, vintage, possibly from the 90s. The box said “Silver Crystal.”

What I would ask her as from what I have seen no one else has asked her this question nor has she responded I would ask "In the Sailor Moon series you made Sailor Senshi or male Senshi for each of the major celestial objects known at the time in the 90s except for the Sun. Why didn't you make a Sailor Sun in the series?"

People did ask the question back in the day at a con as to why there was no Sailor Earth and Naoko Takeuchi responded that Tuxedo Mask takes the place of a Sailor Earth so I would like to as the same thing as to why there isn't a Sailor Sun or a Male Senshi of the Sun. To me it was fairly obvious when I watched the show that Mamoru aka Tuxedo Mask was the Senshi of the Earth just a Male one. From him being referred to as The Prince of the Earth in the same way as Sailor Moon and the other Sailor Senshi were referred to as being the Princesses of their Celestial Objects and for the fact that Mamoru had a Sailor Crystal The Golden Crystal which as Sailor Galaxia said in the Sailor Stars season is the Starseed that controls the Earth. Where as there was atleast in no version of the series I have seen anyone who was referred to as being a possible Senshi of the Sun. There was no one referred to as the Princess, Prince, Queen or King of the Sun or having association with it. Some people head canon Helios as being the Senshi of the Sun but there really is no evidence for this other then his Solar Themed name. However I could just as easily say that Hina Kusaka is possibly an unwakened Sailor Sun due to her deliberately Solar Themed name to contrast to Usagi's Lunar Last name and Mamoru's Earthly last name. Others say that Mamoru is the Senshi of both the Earth and the Sun but this makes no sense what so ever as Sailor Senshi can only be Sailor Senshi of one celestial object at the time and there can not be two or more Sailor Senshi of the same celestial object and even Sailor Galaxia herself in the Sailor Stars anime when mentioning how she murdered Tuxedo Mask and took his Starseed said she had the Starseed that controls the Earth. Not the Starseed that controls the Earth and the Sun. Plus in showing the images of the Inner and Outer Sailor Senshi who were killed with their images over their planets Mamoru is show with his image over the Earth not the Earth and the Sun.

Oh I’d also probably ask her if she never has the intention of creating a new manga, or if she is done with making manga for good.

I feel like perhaps Sailor Moon burnt her out for life P-:P-: Isn’t her husband also similar in that he has a hiatus almost every year? (For HunterxHunter)
