As they have delayed the DoReMi from May 15 till "by the end of the year", due to "production issues" and not the Coronavirus, I higly doubt we are getting Eternal release this year. Toei being Toei... They will probably release it next year, so the rest of the world that cannot hope for theatrixal release won't see it till 2022. Whuch is like 6 years from Season 3. I understand if tge vurus is the reason, but if they say the same think like "production issues" after 4 years... Why, oh why couldn't another studio like TMS couldn't produce Crystal. Looking at the right treatment they give to Fruits Basket... But oh well we are getting greedy Toei. Sorry for the rant but seeing the reason for Do Re Mi slated for May and mainly the reason being "troubled production" I just had to vent a bit.

So they are using them to films as well. I thought they reserve them to tv show and that is why they decided to work with Deen on the Eternal films.

From my understanding production is finished on Sailor Moon Eternal Part 1 (this will definitely impact Part 2).

What I don't quite get is how the animation wouldn't be finished for Doremi since the movie was supposed to premiere in like two months... Surely they needed to have the movie finished earlier?? Are we sure it's not an issue with the voice actors recording?

Does production mean a finish project ?

Well it says animation production. They were about to start selling early tickets with some bonus merch. Are they really working on animation till the very last minute for films as well. If it is just some post production minor stuff, it shouldn't be delayed as much. They say "it should be released by the end of the year". Something is clearly fishy. I expected the film to be delayed but for the health crisis going on, but a production for the films should have been finished by now. I doubt Part 1 is finished. Do Re Mi is not has some art and promo video released, while Eternal has but one key visual.

We are going to get the movie. I know its horrible because the delay is pretty much confirmed at this point but oh well we cant do much about it...lets hope we all are healthy when the movie finally comes out.

As a small side note the lastest issue of Kawaii (Polish m&a magazine) has SM Crystal on the front page and apparently also a poster too. Makes me very happy.

It just makes me realize how much I miss the original art direction for Crystal. If they had the budget and the right management to back it up and realize it properly. But, this is Toei we are talking about. At least on twitter they still state September as release date for the yesterday's tweet about the Eternal Dolls. Let's hope the crisis won't affect Part 1 at least. Having it will make a longer wait for Part 2 bearable.

TMS Entertainment is a much better animation studio than Toei. The Fruits Basket reboot is amazing. KyoAni, I think is another studio that can handle Sailor Moon properly.

Oh you don't know what TMS did with Glass Mask 2005. Fortunately, the best script and the music saved the show.
Wow, I have seen it and yes the animation was below average, but still better than what Toei did to Crystal 1 and 2. It was also much longer and they did it without splitting it in cores. And the script was, like u said, good, while Toei opened a bunch of plot holes and stuff that doesn't make much sense.

KyoAni are amazing, but they are not very interested in the genre and they have a signature themes and look that are not very fitting. To be perfectly honest, while I love their animation, which is spectacle of all the shows they did I like two - Silent Voice, which looks great, but still they cut too muh from the source, and Violet Evergarden - amazing artstyle and animation. Everything else I have seen by them was beautiful, but with minimal plot and reason to exist, beyond glorification of moe

You people say how good the new Fruits Basket is yet you don't talk about it in the actual thread while it's airing. :roll:

It's frustrating if Eternal gets delayed, but it's frustrating because EVERYTHING is getting delayed, not because Toei has mistreated the franchise (which is also true). I'm not going to be angry at Toei for doing what is probably the right thing since it's clearly impacting even their more prized franchise such as Precure. It's the one time where they're truly not at fault, so it's best to just take a deep breath.

Nobody is denying it - everything is out of order right now, everything is getting delayed and we all understand the reasons. September is far away and we have hope everything will be back to normal by then. Time only knows and we might still get some news in the next few days, despite the cancellation of the event. Meanwhile, do you guys have any voice-actors hopes and suggestions for the new characters?

I watched SHIROBAKO, the anime about anime making. They record the voice even before the animation is finished. They just simply add the draft of the storyboard, the name of the character, and add the time to make a draft video, and people will record with that draft video.
