So apparently there was no news on release dates of Viz's Crystal nor S today. There will be a Sailor Moon panel next Saturday at another event though.
What a surprise. How long are Viz going to sit on this? After making such a song and dance about it I can't say I'm impressed.
Two years in and we're not even hearing about when we might get the third season, which leads me to suspect it's months away at the least. I was hopeful when the first four sets looked like the gaps between might be about 4 months on average. That's still three years to completion.
But R part two was October last year, and whilst the screwup on that introduced a delay making the "release" date December, it looks like it's going to be six months. Or more.
It's ridiculously slow, even allowing for the new dub.
And then we have to factor in Crystal which I have a nasty feeling isn't going to be released in parallel. How long until we get the full series? 2021? Will they even be selling DVD's by then?
Hard to believe that nearly two years after announcing this with a big splash they've only managed four half-season sets.
It does make me wonder in Madman will pull ahead. It would be very odd to rush (compared to Viz) the first four (yes, I know the dubs were already done), then to slow down to a snail's pace. If Madman know the release schedule, and it's going ot be this slow, you'd think they'd manage expectation by spacing out their initial sets more.
