Well, as you said, it's history. The portuguese market no longer does this.
And actually, brazilian fans can't stand their own R-Stars dub and are eager for these seasons to be redubbed with the Classic cast. They would have a breakdown if they got the portuguese dub with seven actors doing the whole thing :lol:

My impression is that Naoko wants the manga and the DVDs to feel like luxurious products. People in Latin America are poor and they are going to pirate anime and manga titles, even if official releases are available, so my impression is that Naoko wants to lure people into buying something that is not available through illegal torrents. How do you do that? By providing fans with a luxurious experience.

Will that business model work? Only a privileged few will be able to buy those products, I guess, and the products will flop much like they did in Mexico because they were allegedly overpriced.

We all know Naoko gets a lot of stress from hard daily work, and we all know that she has only one way to relieve her stress. If those Brazilian fans can't afford to buy at least a couple new Ferraris for Naoko, they aren't worthy to be called true fans. What a bunch of ungrateful fans this fandom is made of. :zoid:


LMAO! I've been waiting for someone to say this!!

I am used to Brazilian Portuguese. My best friend is from Portugal and sometimes I struggle to understand her accent. Same thing with people who speak Castilian Spanish.

And if you are suggesting that Brazilians should import the DVDs from Portugal, that is not going to happen... too expensive for the average Brazilian. Moreover, Brazil is going through a tough economic crisis, recession right now.

In any event, as Mara summarized, we all know that all problems stem from one thing:

These entitled, selfish Brazilian "fans" want "Sailor Moon" DVDs without giving absolutely nothing in return; they just complain and complain and suck the joy out of someone else's life. They should be happy with what they have and just quit whining and complaining. :o

That kind of sucks.

I was thinking about it, and idk if anyone here reads Booms! Power Rangers series, but I would love if they were able to get the rights to release SM as a comic and treat it the same way they do PR. That would be such a great thing for this franchise.

Basically, Naoko's involvement within the franchise results in business deals waaaay slower than other anime properties. He also mentions that in order to Brazil air Crystal on TV, it needs to re-air the classic seasons first.


She won't get her ☹ to produce new material, so she releases "new" versions of her old production, that require even older versions to be aired to get license. Smart queen aiming for longevity of her franchise without actually moving a finger, lmao.
MILK that series for dear life, moon legend! :love:

Most of the sources or things I see is them saying Naoko can be "difficult" to work with. It could be all rumor crap though but if everyone keeps saying the same thing....

Licensors and distributors from different countries have recorded videos and wrote articles about Naoko being difficult to work with.

My guess is that she thinks the way she operates her business model applies to every country --for example, because VIZ was able to license "Sailor Moon" in the U.S., then so will other companies from developing countries whose economies are very weak compared to that of the United States.
