Results Report Finally Done!


Hi Moonies! Here are your results reports binders, for those of you who are still skeptical of this campaign. One will go to Toei, and the other will go to FUNImation. I spoke with representatives of both companies on Monday and they are both looking forward to seeing these results. Each one has nearly 180 pages! I had wanted to send them out this morning, however it took me nearly 3 hours to get everything printed properly. As you can probably tell from the photo, every page in here is protected with a page protector.

There is a wealth of information in these reports, and it is our hope that they will help to bring the series back by notifying the companies of what the fans want to see. What makes up this report? 1331 survey responses, several pages worth of fan comments, and a comprehensive look at the history of Sailor Moon and how past management decisions have affected the fandom.

I want to first and foremost thank the fans who participated in our campaign. Your voices are strong, and you have shown that Sailor Moon is still loved. Your love for the series never stopped, despite having been without it for 5 years, or the few years gap in between the R and S seasons! Many of your comments for the show have told us how much it has meant to you and what the show needs to be a success again.

Secondly, I want to thank my entire Moon Chase staff for their grace, patience, and teamwork. When we all pull together, there is nothing that we can't do! This report marks one of the biggest achievements that this site has ever produced, and here's to many more! I promise, you can all take it easy now ;). To the auxiliary staff members who have helped us translate important things that we needed to put this together, thank you!

Thirdly, and not least, I want to thank our staff's family members, friends, and colleagues for their support. It has meant a lot to us especially when the going got tough. We could not have pushed on forward without you! And a special thank you to the stars of the show for still having faith in a production they did many years ago. We know how much these characters have meant to you all, and we really hope we will be able to enjoy your voices again in a re-release or re-dub!

To you two blue binders, I wish you a prosperous journey to the hands I will send you off to tomorrow morning! Tell our stories and words with as much heart as we all gave putting you together!

Thanks everyone! I will keep you fans posted with the progress!

The only results that we have not sent are the results of that 1 question we asked on the manga - because FUNI and Toei wouldn't be able to do much about it anyway. Toei has no credits listed on any of the manga, and FUNI doesn't publish manga either! I will send a much shorter report to Kodansha once I know they are settled in the US market (probably January). I just don't want to trouble them right now at what is probably a hectic time for them since they just started operations!

I wish those two binders a safe trip, and a happy end. I hope that we get only good news from FunI and that nobody stands in our way. We can see the prize now let's run for it!
