Well I doubt any of us need Sailor Moon explained to us. But if you ever need to give someone an overview, The Mary Sue is putting together a series explaining it all.
Now as a creative type, I’m following this pretty closely. The relaunch is a huge thing of a beloved franchise, it’s supposedly following the manga closer (which will make it fresher), and it seems that the American audience is even more receptive to the magical girl genre. This could be insanely huge.
Also if it’s huge (figure it will be) I’m thinking . . .
It’ll play into Hollywood’s unoriginality. They will jump on this.
I expect more attention to the magical girl genre in the US. Again.
It could be surprisingly mainstream as the seeds are there.
