Ah I corrected the news text. I'm not sure what he meant by "not 2014. perhaps." There is a possibility of this autumm release, but it's likely to be aired in or after 2015.

So either that means they're going to delay it until 2015 or just one season.

Please let it be just one season...

So stupid! Apparently the delay is so that they could air reruns of the original Sailor Moon instead. Even with 2 episodes a week, it's still going to take 6 months for the entire first season to finish.

But than they might know if people are interested in it at all.

Too bad it happened but better to wait and get some good thing, than rush stuff and have some abomination.
I will be happy with this as long as they will direct this series towards older fans (it probably won't affect Precure with its little girls demographic and that huge amount of cash it brings but still)

There has to be plenty of interest in a remake. They wouldn't have ever made that live action Sailor Moon in the first place if there wasn't any.

If they wanted to air all the original episodes before, why didn't they do this a long time ago?

I was actually hyped for it this coming summer! D: Oh darn it.... ;_____;

At least hoping for some good quality animation and story if they'll delay it. This gives them ample time to do so.

Huh....that is an inconvenience of varying scale from person to person.

It's unfortunate, but it looks like we'll have to wait a little longer. Sad.

Okay, as it is said, it is not cancelled and better have it postponed and well-executed than quickly-done then forgotten .. .

It deserves to be newly rejuvenated as a new phenomenon

Damn, disappointing news. Well, we've waited a long time for it so far so I guess a little longer won't hurt... As long as they're improving it and dedicating more effort in to the show, it'll be worth it.

How badly do you have to screw up for "Summer 2013" to turn into "Uh possibly 2015"? And with something as beloved and anticipated by so many people as Sailor Moon too.

Jeeze.

Edit: Actually that tweet is ambiguous as hell, it could mean Fall 2013 too, so who knows. I guess I'm still going to expect first half of 2014.

flips a table

Seriously, you think there would be somewhat of a priority placed on such a storied franchise...

oh well. If the delay actually amounts to something positive for the remake, I suppose it's for the best in the long run. It's just always slightly worrisome when something like this runs into issues so early.

I wouldn't be surprised. It seems like too ambitious of a project... you can't really do Sailor Moon in just 13-26 episodes, but could you really get a long daytime slot for Sailor Moon anymore? I doubt it.

Probably because they jumped the gun and announced it without doing any work on it beforehand.

Wasn't it to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Sailor Moon? But isn't it kind of this year, not 2015? And why would it definitely not be 2014!? Those people work in mysterious ways.

The 20th anniversary was 2012 - last year.

I've heard rumors that the delay is because Princess Naoko Planning has been butting heads with the producers over changes to make the anime more marketable/PC/whatever, but so far as I've seen these rumors are unfounded (though they make sense), so take that with a very small grain of salt.
