Frankly. If the second part was destined to be a hit, it would be in the top 10, or even in the same place as part 1. There, I must say it's a flop for this second part.

Where did the audience for film 1 go? Why didn't he go see the second movie? These are the questions that must be asked. Covid 19 has nothing to do with it, otherwise, these people would not have been to see part 1.

So sad that the movies flopped. I wonder if they will go back to making STARS a Tv series now?
I don't know how you can get on this conclusion "the movies flopped" but whatever lol They clearly (at least the first part) didn't. And the movies are still not out internationally... which is obviously the main goal of the movies and the netflix deal.

Seeing as the movie was monetized by Netflix, maybe Toei will consider the idea of making two movies for the arc 5 and Netflix after (like the arc 4).

Let's be honest, directly selling a publisher for each country is a waste of money for Toei. The best solution in the future is to make Netflix a priority for transmission.

When a film crashes in its own country. It remains a flop. Even if the foreigner will do better, it remains a flop in Japan.
You seem to have such a weird satisfaction saying everytime and everywhere that the movie "flopped", I wonder what's exactly the idea here ? Does it make you feel better ? We are so happy that you seem so pleased, really.

Where did I speak everywhere that the movie flopped? I just said once here ... I can't help it if the Japanese haven't gone to see the second film.

If it wasn’t in the top 10 for the first week then it definitely won’t be from now on.

It’ll be interesting to see where they go from here. Another movie? A TV broadcast? They haven’t had much success with either.. so it’s hard to say. Storytelling wise I’d much prefer a weekly TV series for Stars of 13 episodes with Tandano’s style over a movie. Art style aside I honestly don’t think there is that much of a difference between S3 and Eternal, anyway. There again it’d be a very messy move to go from movie back to TV so who knows..

Perhaps the film format was better in a sense for worldwide distribution.

Look, Season 4 (Eternal), Netflix. No need to go through the publishers in each country to negotiate. Here, we negotiate all the countries at once for a single streaming publisher.

After, now, Toei can negotiate with each country for a physical release only. So less fuss, they already have their money with Netflix.

----

Look in France, we had two seasons, nothing after, because more TV broadcasting, Toei refused to do a dub for a physical release only (not profitable).

---

So Netflix is a good point to broadcast the series to the world, if season 5 becomes a series, as long as they continue with Netflix.

Because if it is to wait months and months for each contract in each country to be done, as much to snub the publishers of each country for Netflix.

I just see these movies as 2 very long commercials. They most likely get their net profits from selling :usagi: merchandise with the international community.

But haven’t we seen from past seasons that the story stays the same based on the manga? If anything the movies have revealed how much Crystal’s episodes were padded for time.

I know fans are secretly hoping that they’d expand on Stars, but if they didn’t do that for the past four seasons, I think it’s time to let that hope finally go. Whatever form it takes, for better or worse, Stars will adhere to the manga.

But for example in season 3 we got a little bit more time for action scequences and so on. Like the fight with the Daimon on episode 2, the cool Senshi vs Senshi battle, etc. I don’t mind extra padding and fluff as it gives the narrative a little time to breath. Eternal while it’s impressive they managed to squeeze everything into a short runtime suffers because of this.

Naoko is meant to be more hands on this time around but from everything I’ve seen she is yet again doing the bare minimum. When the director is struggling to understand your manga (because the second half of SuperS is quite hard to follow) and you send you editor to do your job for you.. what?
