I don’t mind “Sailor Moon” but I think the fact that there is so much noise around it now is due to great PR. Hope the new series live up to the expectations both quality- and sales-wise.

Proving me right again…US market dictates rules in the anime industry. Next time you see only idiocy for the next season, don’t wonder why.
