With the Sailor Moon reboot anime coming to a close soon (assuming they adapt Stars), what do you think is next for the franchise?

They've re-relreased the manga like 3 times, blu ray sets are now complete of the OG anime, Crystal was an adaption of the Manga...will Sailor Moon just fade from existence besides basic merchandise? Will they just continue to re-release the manga? Perhaps re-adapt the 3 OG movies? Wait 10 or so years to do another anime adaption of the Dark Kingdom?

A remake of Another Story RPG and more video games.

Sailor V anime series.

If possible, a Live Action series. I won't ask for movie because it might be too woke.

I don't really know. Do you think Naoko would continue the story or let someone else do a spinoff?

IMO, I can't imagine a Sailor V only series with a lot of episodes. A Sailor V OVA with four episodes leading up to the awakening of Luna would be nice to have as a collector's item I suppose.

I think more folks would like Sailor Uranus since she seems to be the most popular now.

If we get a Sailor V OVA I'd like them to tackle stories with short OVAs dealing with:

What were the lives of the Inner Senshi like on their home planets? I'd like to see if they had to battle any threats in their own realms and also I'd like to see them interacting with some of their people. Like for instance: Princess Mars, Phobos, Deimos, Lead Crow and beyond on Mars and it's orbiting moons.

Sailor Neptune awakening and fighting by herself before meeting Uranus. I've always been curious as to how she ran into her powers before Uranus similar to how Venus did before the Inners.

More about Luna and her people and why she was chosen specifically.

Chibi-Usa and the Quartet. I am iffy about this one but the Quartet are fresh and need to be more involved. The only thing is that I don't think they have any unique attacks on their own in Senshi form. I cant remember.

That's the only thing I can think of based on Usagi becoming Queen.

I think I am in the minority but I would love to see PGSM inspired series in anime form. Don't have to change everything but keep the same dynamics and drama and fights (minus the slow ballet).

Honestly I feel like if she wants the franchise to keep going long term she needs to let it fly free to a degree. She can still be an executive producer but let someone else come up with the overall stories if she isnt interested in doing them herself. But she is holding Sailor Moon, Sailor V back from the sounds of it.

I am not into the musicals, but I believe the musicals will continue forever. It also would not be unrealistic to expect a new art book.

Naoko’s husband creation, “Yu Yu Hakusho,“ is gaining a live action adaptation. A Netflix original. I am speculating, but depending on how successful it will be it would not be completely unreasonable to imagine that “Sailor Moon” could possibly have a similar fate. Money sometimes talks.

This is both interesting and scary. I am a big fan of Yu Yu so I am going to read more about this but her hubbie also being on Netflix is a good sign. Maybe there just might be something new with SM in the future....

More free :usagi: branded condoms. :yoshi::cthulhu::yoshi:
They were free only for end users, but most certainly not free to license and produce. Speaking of licenses, I wonder if there were any official Sailor Moon-themed coronavirus face masks released in Japan? I didn't follow the news closely. It would be surprising if Naoko missed the chance to use the epidemic for a quick cash grab.

I think if she approached a studio/network/streaming service about doing something with Sailor Moon they'd jump at it in a minute.
And then jump back in a second after Naoko voicing her expectations for advance payments and subsequent monthly royalties. P-:

If she wants to keep the store open, and it seems so, because she has opened small SM stores all over Japan, she has to continue delivering something. Will it be Parallel Sailor Moon? another Live Action? I don't know but this won't stop just after Stars...

No thanks, I don't need her coming out with yet another wig and doing wrestling moves looking super-cheesy on screen.
