I'll take it as actual confirmation since this coming from an actual staff member.

And it makes lots of sense for several reasons:

1) Toei is juggling a LOT of projects, but a few of their shows like Appmon is ending this Fall.

2) When they officially announced the new season, the official word was that they're PLANNING on a doing a new season. They said nothing about it being green lit for production.

3) They're currently airing commercials w/ the Season 3 style. If Season 4 was in the works, they would have probably already used the new designs instead of using designs from an older season (even if they did tweak it a bit).

I had thought it was going to be released in the Fall, but hopefully we won't have to wait until Winter of 2018. How ever long it takes them, I just hope it's because they're taking the time to release a good product and not because the anime is experiencing production hell like the first two seasons.

I wonder if the situation about a shortage of animators and being overworked has anything to do with this delay. I can wait another year if we get a season as high quality as season three and I waited four years for more episodes of Attack on Titan. I just wish they would announce this stuff publicly instead of having to rely on rumors.

I believe him allthough im still waiting for any confirmation (or lack of one) on Usagi and Chibiusa birthday.

I dont mind the break. Of course id love new season even today but its not the end of the world

I just hope the longer break means Toei will keep the quality of the animation on S3 level (or higher) and not like how it was with 1st season when after 2 years of waiting we've received very questionable quality after 1st episode

I think the safer bet is production hell.

Well, an animator just died in Japan and the cause was allegedly overworking: http://www.thejakartapost.com/life/2017 ... king-.html

Wouldn't be surprised. Heck, it wouldn't surprised if it was to be released in 2019. Remember when Crystal was first announced and we had a two year delay on it after

I don't mind waiting as I have plenty of other shows to watch in the meantime. I just hope this means we get Dream and Stars back-to-back and the animation will be better quality. Season III was a big step up in terms of fluidity and expressiveness, but the character designs were lacking, the stock animation was subpar, and they got really lazy halfway through with recycling footage. Dream is the best arc in the manga with the worst counterpart in the 90s anime. Crystal's version really needs to step it up and do it the justice it deserves.

Is that bad animators in Japan only get 5 dollars a day. Even though it's technically illegal.

This doesn't surprise me that much . It takes anime two years to make another season. (I mean relesed wise)

Disappointing, but I don't mind waiting if it means better quality. Hopefully they do Stars alongside Dream to make up for the delay.

The English dub of Crystal's third season should be coming out this year, so at least I still have that to look forward to.

I wouldn't take these as anything official. I will continue to wait for word from Toei.

Before everyone freaks out, how do we even know these photos are real? Anyone can fake a photo of a conversation on the Internet and claim it to be the words of the staff members of Toei. It also seems like this is the kind of news they would keep under a strict contract that they wouldn't just randomly spout off to a random fan for no reason before an official press announcement is made. And if it is real, it seems like a bad move on the part of this fan to leak this information that could have cost this staff member a job if this information wasn't supposed to be made public.

They already had a famous scandal when having the first key visual leaked. ^_^

I hope this is just a rumor, and we will have good news before Usagi's birthday.

Thats true. Like i said im waiting for Usagi and Chibiusa birthday for any information. If we wont get any update by then this information will be much more believable. Or if they announce it for 2018 on that day of course

I still think we should be skeptical until we hear from either the official site or a professional anime news site like ANN or Crunchyroll as opposed to just taking the word of some random Twitter user who claims to have an unnamed friend that just happens to know a key staff member.

We've had information come out of his Facebook before (of course that doesn't mean this one couldn't be faked).

I believe it only because it all adds up.

I know a lot of people are hoping it's going to be released Summer this year but it's looking INCREDIBLY unlikely. If S4 was going to be released this Summer we would have gotten some information by now. There would have been an announcement for an event that'd reveal the new voice actors and show key visual art... Literally something. Despite everyone here being convinced about this, Toei never does surprise announcements. They pretty much just drip feed information. Silence just means it's not happening anytime soon.

Ruling out Summer, you literally have only season left this year and that's Fall. I wouldn't be surprised if we don't hear anything in June either and then it'll be pretty obvious 2018 is S4's year.

Yes besides this is how anime usually does it schedule .Lot anime usually have a two year gap between seasons .

If it is true then, I still think you took a pretty big risk with the music composer's career unless you got specific permission to leak such vital information to the public. It still seems kind of weird Toei would leak such important information instead of through an official press announcement or through the official Sailor Moon site. It just makes it seem like the higher ups are trying to hide this information from us for some reason that they won't put it out there in an official way. I've never heard of an anime season release date being announced through a Facebook leak before in all my years of being an anime fan. If it is true, that's also very unprofessional on Toei's part.

Not realy he didn't tell them the exact date . He just said in 2018? That's not really informative

I don't think they've decided on an exact date at this point anyway. lol

2018 could also still include a December air date as the December anime season is counted as the winter season of next year.

The cynical side of me is wondering if Toei is trying to drag the franchise out as long as possible to keep it around for Sailor Moon's 30th anniversary.

Well, not only Toei.
Naoko's new artbook is still in process since 2012 :ohmy: :ohmy:
They try to milk the cow. The Sailor Moon products are selling like hot cakes, worldwide.
