VIZ Media Europe Acquires License for Sailor Moon Anime
Toei Animation Europe has recently signed a new deal with VIZ Media Europe for the DVD rights to the Sailor Moon anime series. The deal grants VIZ Media Europe DVD distribution rights to the iconic mahou shoujo series for all the French-speaking European countries.
This is a big break for VIZ Media, as Sailor Moon is one of the most sought-after classic anime licenses, with fanbase that is still strong to this day and a commercial appeal that could rival Dragon Ball’s (it’s been described before as “Dragon Ball Z for Girls,” which could be true if not for the fact that there are also a lot of guys who love Sailor Moon.)
VIZ Media Switzerland is planning to release the complete Sailor Moon saga (which consists of 5 series spanning 200 episodes) in Germany, in both German and original version with German subtitles. Kaze, on the other hand, will be releasing the first series (consisting of 46 episodes) in all the French-speaking European countries in both French dubbed and French subtitled versions.
