Production of the New Sailor Moon Delayed

sailor moon anime 2013Editor Osabu said on Twitter that the upcoming new Sailor Moon anime series will be delayed. Although no certain information has been given, the rumours that the show will not start on the announced season were finally confirmed.

Fumio Osano’s first editing project for Sailor Moon manga was published in 1991. Since then, he has become widely known as one of the main people in the franchise alongside mangaka Naoko Takeuchi.

The initial release season of the upcoming anime was Summer 2013, but it was obvious for some fans that this schedule could not be kept. On the other hand, a different tweet by the editor caused a turmoil within the otaku world.

What does “parhaps” mean in this second message to his followers, we can only guess.

  1. “The initial release season of the upcoming anime was Summer 2013, but it was obvious for some fans that this schedule could not be kept.”

    Was it really that obvious? I have no idea why they delayed it. It’s not like any story element or art decision is going to changed. I just hope it is delayed for more quality checking or something and not due to budget restraints.

    1. There were rumours about this delay. I can’t say everyone trusted them, but some did.
      I think that it is a big project and maybe the short deadline was what made things suspicious.

      For what it’s worth, I personally believe that the production should take its time in order to not disappoint.
