Sailor Moon Questions and Answers

Do you think Sailor Moon could have lasted longer as an anime?

I think it definitely could have but I understand why it didn't.

It was a cultural phenomenon in Japan at the time it was airing and merchandise was everywhere. The reason it didn't continue though was probably due to the fact that the creator, Naoko Takeuchi had already been struggling to create more of the manga do you think sailor moon could have lasted longer as an anime? from which it was based and had decided to finish it.

The anime continuing after the end of the manga would have been very unusual as this almost never happens. Most animes in Japan rely on multimedia marketing across numerous versions at the same time. Just look at Naruto, Bleach or any other current anime who has anime, movies, manga, toys and cds to push the product.

If the anime continued, it's ratings most likely would have decreased without the manga reader's support. Many probably would have stopped watching as well, simply assuming that the story has finished as the manga has stopped.

Something else to think about is that at the time, 200 episodes (about 4 years) was a very long run for an anime. If they were to make a new Sailor Moon anime now however it most likely would run into the 500s or even more like the aforementioned Naruto and Bleach.

Consequentially though unless Naoko created more manga the anime would see a lot of storylines unique to the anime, similar to the alien arc in Sailor Moon R. Not necessarily a bad thing though.
