Would you be in favor of a continuation of the series? All integrity in tact. All characters the same, author remained true to story line/tie in the continuation to the past, etc.

I know there is tons of fanfic out there that does this for us, but how would you feel about the continuation coming from where it all began?

I would like to think all of us would love if Naoko decided to continue the series. I'd love to see her answer so many of the fans questions with stories. Even if they were short stories or mini character development plots (srsly, i'd love some more of those character development shorts). Saddly, I think Naoko is pretty much done with Sailor Moon as far as the creating part goes. I think she loves the revival and I think she likes its getting a resurgence and wants to be a part of that, even if its small, but i think she was happy with where she ended it.

However, i'd be fangirl squealing my head off if I found out she decided to do some more work.

I'm not so sure that it would work. It's been so long since the manga and anime ended that I don't think that a continuation would have the same qualities. Like we saw with PGSM, times have changed. It would be hard to keep the same... I dunno, maybe the word I'm looking for is 'atmosphere'. I'd say that the live action would be the easiest to continue, but it's been 8 years since that finished, and all the actors have moved on.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love it to be picked back up again, but I'm just not sure what the quality of the continuity would be. It's more along the lines of the manga and anime being rather on the dated side now.

I'd personally like to see a continuation but in a more modern sense. I think the integration of today's technologies and such would make for some great fun. I mean, I think it would be pretty easy to pick back up if you went that route. With all the time/dimension travel the series already has why not go back to the future?

I don't think that a continuation (in the sense where she picks up where she left off) would work--pop references, fashions, technology and politics have changed since the original SM was published...which means that there would be a drastic difference in the setting, or the setting would stay the same and not interest new readers for being outdated.

HOWEVER! I would love if she were to do a shorter spin-off series based on different characters and/or time periods.

Ex:

Life during the Silver Millenium, the series ending with Endymion and Serenity's deaths.

The story of the outer senshi during the Silver Millenium. (Particularly Neptune & Uranus...were they lovers back then too? How did they meet, if they were assigned to not leave their home castles? Etc)

The world during the rules of Chibiusa and whomever her husband is (probably Helios...), and their family.

The story of Sailor Cosmos.



The list goes on and on...there is so much that can be done! A lot of fanfics have covered this ground though. Still, I'd love to know what Naoko would do for these. C:

I'd also like to see the time period where ChibiUsa is living in Crystal Tokyo with her guardians. I think i've brought this up as a potential sixth season in another thread, but it'd interesting to see what life is like in Crystal Tokyo.

Also if there were to be a continuation of the series in our time, we would well be on your way into Crystal Tokyo. Neo Queen Serenity would be 33 years old and Chibi-Usa would be maybe 10 or 11, though she'd still look younger because of her stunted growth. Unless something exciting happens during this time period, it would be rather boring. I also think Takeuchi would have to go back and fix some continuity errors, i think some odd things pop up when she starts dealing with the future. Which isn't surprising since she originally did not plan to continue the series past the Black Moon arc if I am correct.

Now possibly a redo of the series in a more modern setting? That could be interesting too. Which reminds me of this fanart that SailorFailures posted on her blog a while back: http://sailorfailures.tumblr.com/post/10517682056/modern-scene-uphaul-1-crystal-disk-crystal

I kinda like how Naoko just left it where it was. When Usagi ascends the throne, she's no longer Sailor Moon; the series had to end. .... this is in no way me saying that I would absolutely hate it if Naoko put out further artbooks of Crystal Tokyo's future for the fans to piece together. The open-ended-ness of the future is just so fun to mess with. ((^^ The Crystal Tokyo time period is the main point behind my roleplay idea for this site - I'm hoping to hear back about it soon))

A continuation would be amazing but what would it be about? I mean there are plenty of possibilities but it...I'm not sure..I'm not in favor of a continuation but, possibly a book by Naoko about what happens after "the end" and maybe she could answer some of our questions like the ones on this site.

I actually would LOVE it if the series continued with Chibiusa and her senshi. Because of the fact that Sailor Moon, the franchise, is dated, it could mean a whole different perspective on the characters and anime itself. I really think it could work.

I think it would be so cute if my children were to watch a new show or read a new manga. It would be THE CIRCLE OF LIFE.

(Also, since it is almost 2012, Crystal Tokyo would be so legit with the new technology out currently in our lives)

I think also a reason why people wouldn't want a "Chibiusa" Sailor Moon centered revival is because tons of people dislike her. JUST SAYIN. haha
