The future isn’t there to see just yet, Moonies. For those of you who have not heard via other fans on Twitter, Facebook, and other forums, FUNImation’s panel at Anime Expo 2011 on Friday night began with a “Cosmic Moon Power” (possibly from an AX staff member), and then there was no mention of a license for Sailor Moon. We can’t say we at the blog are surprised by this (because as usual, we saw it coming). For those of you still wondering why it is taking so long, a deal at a much higher parental level than FUNImation or any other company acquiring the license has to take place first. And so far, that deal hasn’t quite come to fruition yet. It’s a waiting game as always, so please be patient. The Sailor Moon anime will come when the time is right. Rest assured, everyone knows how much the fans all want the series, and given how (almost) smoothly the revival has gone in other parts of the world, it will be well worth the wait for everyone involved to plan the best possible strategy for Sailor Moon in North America. Hang tight, Moonies!
A very special thank you to Sailor Astera for creating this comic and giving us permission to use it to accompany this article!
And FUNImation? Do us all a favor and actually tease fans about a title you have rights to. How about starting a panel with Kamehameha next time?
