November-January launch window is what they're saying. They might have an announcement next month. Whether or not it's Sailor Moon-related, who knows.
Hmm.. problem is the writer of the article wrote about Nov-Jan window but nothing in the Japanese source he quoted (e.g. the pics in the article) mentions anything about such window.

It is very rare for a TV series to start in November because of the "cour system" in TV broadcast in Japan where series almost always start in Jan, April, July and October. If you have a credible source about November being mentioned as a possible start date I would be very interested to know about it.

Seems like they're just randomly throwing out dates they have no intention of following up on. Can't wait for the next cycle of hype and inevitable disappointment when this gets delayed again.

November would be a bizarre time to start an anime, very late fall start. Can't remember a show that started airing in November. I think the calendar hint really means winter 2014 season, usual start of either last week of December or start of January is my guess.

I saw it coming.

Wow, I was quite excited to hear they were making a remake. Sailor Moon is like a building block for a lot anime fans. Hopefully it will come along a lot faster, than we think.

WHAT. Aw man that's such a bummer. I was so looking forward to watching it this summer...

^ I'm guessing it's most likely due to Takeuchi's heavy-handedness. From what I've heard, at least, that woman seems to have a stubborn streak a mile wide. (And considering what she went through during the Sailor Moon days, I can hardly blame her.)


Since they ruined her scenario about the Starlights which Shocked her at the utmost ... I think she doesn't want the direction to slip through her fingers once more
