It would have made more sense for them to finish the series by the 25th anniversary, let it rest for a bit, and then announce a new adaptation for the 30th anniversary, but clearly Toei isn't interested in sense... :angry:

Chiaki Kon is directing Tokimeki Restaurant, which will be in theaters in 2018.

So they haven't even started SMC4 yet???

Toei is doing multiple movies each year. The other movie is said to be 2018 but we dont know when in 2018 just like we dont know when Crystal movies will be released.

As for Toei showing they dont care about SM: whats new? We knew that since the first season of Crystal. After fans complains they've poured a bit more money into season 3 and now with movies the quality should be even better (even if just by a little bit). Allthough dont expect the highest quality of Toei's movies. Rather expect something like Digimon Tri or Precure movies

Some of the Precure movies look vibrant & nice with smooth animation so that may be a good thing. This movie MAY turn out well since we've never seen anything like it before & don't know what to expect exactly as far as what will be in & how it will be arranged.

This could be a blessing or a curse for the series depending on how this and Stars does.

We may get a Rebirth like DBZ Battle of the Gods...I wish I know how popular SM was still in Japan.

I think we should take it as a sign Toei takes higher priority on making a cheap anime movie based on some cell phone game over making the new Sailor Moon movie.

How common is it for someone to direct more than one anime film in a year?

Tokimoki Restaurant is not from Toei, It's from Production I.G. (see the link in the last page again).

Not often AFAIK, Masaaki Yuasa's sort of an exception since this year alone he directed 2 movies that premiered this past Spring (Lu Over the Wall & The Night Is Short, Walk on Girl) & 1 Netflix series which will be premiering next year (Devilman Crybaby).

I don't think fans complain had anything to do with season 3. One the director left on his own for other projects . The art designer did not want her contract to be renewed . So she left everyone left on their own will. Season 3 air on tv , while the first two sasons air on the net.Sailor Moon is just not as popular in Japan as people think it is.( My Best fiend hardly saw any sailor moon stuff in Japan) Also anime in general is not as popular in Japan as we think it is

^ It's a vicious cycle: w/ the overall mediocre, if not even bad, production quality of anime nowadays, fewer & fewer people are watching them, leading to fewer resources being put on their production, hence lowering their quality even further, & so on. That there're also fewer & fewer people watching TV these days (even the J-dramas & some major variety shows are recording successively lower ratings) doesn't help either.

I think they did. Do you really expect Toei to say "yes we fired these people because we werent happy with the results" or them saying "yes we were fired"? Thats not how Japanese industry works. The fact is that they left and Crystal changed drastically, If Toei was happy with S1-2 results why would they change it so much?

As for SM popularity: its hard to measure its popularity because obviously its not a top anime/franchise of recent years but at the same time the interest is there. Why would there be so much merch coming out constantly (in huge amount and variety) for 5 years in a row now. If it wasnt selling people behind it wouldnt put money to produce it. Same goes for Seramyu and Crystal. Toei could've just cancel it if they thought series isnt profitable enough.

Sailor Moon isnt super popular but its has a strong and devoted fanbase and its also recognizable by other anime and even non-anime fans

Sailor Moon is too iconic. I think now since the magical girl genre has kinda went 3,000 ways since the 90s, maybe folks expectations for the series are higher....Then again, the SAM story has been told over and over again, perhaps, we just need something new? Precure does it every season and look at DBZ Super or something like Saint Seiya. Why can't we get a new story with a new great enemy or something like that game Another Story? I love SM/Crystal is cool too but perhaps it may be time to do something "new" like how the musicals were and even PGSM with some "new things"

Except you are forgetting that we got a new director that change things . She even asked the new art director to make it more cutesy.( The reason it change was that different people worked on it) Anime directors change from seasons it's nothing new.If you want to believe they were fire go ahead.Yes, I think the people who are gone would say there fired ?I'm not saying they have no popularity at all. They obviously have enough fanbase continue . But having enough of a fan base . Dosen't mean it as popular think it is .. My friend went to Japan , and satyed for six weeks . They was hardly any sailor moon stuff . Like I said anime is still niche in Japan. It has a bigger fanbase ,but as big as people think it is .

Unless they decided to get another director or maybe just get two director s.Like Chika Kon can work this week, this other can work the tim she is not there.

A more optimistic estimation may be the end of 2018, like during X'mas. :)

That is what I have been wanting or a long time. I would have much rather preferred instead of Crystal if we got a sequel to the 90s anime. Plus there are a lot of original stories they could have adapted to the 90s. Like let's say adapt the Sailor V manga. They could have had it take place like in the manga a year before the Classic anime and depict her battles with the Dark Agency. Maybe after that they could do a movie or OVA showing her battles with the Dark Kingdom and maybe even show an expanded version of her time in London with Katarina and Alan. They could make a 90s canon version of Sailor Moon Another Story. They could adapt an OVA based on the PC Engine game which took place in between the Makaiju arc and the Black Moon Clan arc of R which depicted the return of the Dark Kingdom except take out the plot holes. They could do an adaptation of some of the original stories from the Sera Myu like the Kaguya Island arc, the Dracul Arc or the Dark Sirius arc or just make something completely new. Like something expanding on the Silver Millennium, an adaptation of the first Sailor Wars, a totally original season depicting the rise of Crystal Tokyo, something focusing on Sailor Chibi Moon's adventures with the Sailor Quartet and Sailor Saturn in the future, something dealing with the future Sailor Wars with Sailor Cosmos. There is so much they could have done.

The issue with Crystal isn't that it's not original. Anime is constantly remade all the time in Japan and other reboots do just fine. FMA Brotherhood has been one of the most popular anime in the past two decades even though it's a reboot. Moonies point out the success of Dragon Ball Super but even before Super, there was Dragon Ball Kai, which was a recut adaptation of the original DBZ and it was very popular for years. The issue with Crystal is the lack of consistency and professional attention Toei gave it from the very start. A sequel would have done just as horribly if it was released as a bimonthly web series with shoddy animation.

Well that is true. I would have been fine if they told the same story over again and even if they were more faithful to the manga then say the 90s anime if they added filler, character development, characterization, plot building and world building to the story to not just expand on ideas, stories and characters that weren't given proper attention but to also give us new stuff to keep our tongue's wagging. Basically like how PGSM did. I think PGSM itself would have had much more success if instead of a live action series they made it the new anime. We might have even got the other arcs adapted into seasons.

Actually, Kai probably showed Toei how not to do remake, it flopped in Japan, and Kai Buu Saga wouldnt even air there, if Toriko didnt flop even more, after Kai, we got new Saint Seiya, Sailor Moon, etc.

Actually acording the db z wiki it didn't have low raitings .(The series average rating was 9.4%, with its maximum being 12.3% (Episode 47) and its minimum being 6.4% (Episode 18). Dragon Ball Kai returned to Japanese TV on April 6, 2014, with the Majin Buu Saga, and ended its run for the second and last time on June 28, 2015 with 61 episodes while the original uncut international version would go on to have 69 episodes) Ir could be debated these were the lowest for DBZ ever . Still that is decent viewing.

I just read the booklet, Chiaki, the director said "The target is making a modern anime that reflects the impression of 90's anime".
I'm afraid that we will see the same Moon Gorgeous Meditation next movie....

From what i heard, TV ratings don't count at all, merch sales is what matters, and Kai sold poorly in Japan, after short time, they stopped putting Kai name in figures and other merch.

We might have even got the other arcs adapted into seasons.

Maybe they could do an anime remake of PGSM, & then continue into the other seasons. :D

From what i heard, TV ratings don't count at all, merch sales is what matters, and Kai sold poorly in Japan, after short time, they stopped putting Kai name in figures and other merch.


Exactly, Kai in Japan was a flop for that exact reason and it's only because it did better internationally (not just the US) that the Buu arc was done in the first place back in 2012.

I just read the booklet, Chiaki, the director said "The target is making a modern anime that reflects the impression of 90's anime".
