Hence the two are always in conflict by their very nature, & also like in the original manga, they neither should nor could win over the other, because the existence of the universe always depends on a mutual balance between them.
I like that idea becase it's present throughout Stars and harkens back to things like that strange little panel/scene that compares Queen Nehelenia to Queen Serenity in Dream/Eternal. It'd be cool to explore it further from a different angle.

Cosmos could become an antagonist & Chaos a protagonist by depicting the former as the embodiment of all-encompassing order by which every entity in the universe must abide, while the latter as the one of individual freedom for them.

Perhaps we can make a series about a Chaos counterpart of Usagi/Sailor Moon, Galaxia was originally planned to be written to be that character originally but Naoko scrapped that.

This, I’m surprised she hasn’t been mentioned yet considering what a big fan of Sailor Moon she is, logically either she or CLAMP would be the optimal choice, but I’d also like to see the takes from either Natsuki Takaya or Yuu Watase - Takaya would be especially intriguing since there’s some plot elements in Fruits Basket that are low-key similiar to Sailor Moon that makes me wonder if she was also inspired by it.

From a shonen perspective I’m surprised no one has yet to mention Rumiko Takahashi. I’m not sure if a franchise like Sailor Moon is really “her style” but I feel she’d be the best bet to maintain that great balancing act of a gender neutral tone that the original 90’s anime and manga were so well known for. While her works are all technically Shonen/Seinen, there’s no denying her woman’s touch has managed to attract a large peripheral female fanbase, she’s really the best example of a mangaka whose work speaks to everyone, across gender lines.

As for what the sequel should be centered around, there are really only 4 avenues to go for a direct sequel:

  1. Strictly following manga canon and exploring the future Cosmos came from
  2. The adventures of an All Grown Up Chibi-Usa and her Senshi team ft. Saturn.
  3. The creation of Crystal Tokyo and the lead-up to it.
  4. Exploring the girls as Senshi while now also being adults, something the Mahou Shojo genre is in desperate more need of (seriously why aren’t there any Adult Magical Girls? Why should being a Magical Girl only be confined to your teens?) If Sailor Moon as a franchise is really now aimed at an adult woman audience then let the IP grow up with that audience and explore the trials and tribulations of adulthood while juggling being a super-hero. Would also be a nice bookend continuation to the franchise’s original take as a “Coming of Age story.” Well everyone is now “of age,” so now what? How does this change their perspective on things as well as their Senshi jobs?

Ikegami Ryoichi - I like his depiction of the titular character in Mai, a 14-y.o. girl w/ super powers, hence somewhat similar to the Senshi girls (the story isn't written by him, tho - like in his many other manga, he's only the illustrating artist). :)

I also like Arina doing a Sailor Moon Story, Yuu Watase and Takaya doing a Sailor Moon story would be cool due to the parallels between Usagi with Miaka and Akito.

Yes! Also I just remembered, I don’t know if she’s still in the industry but the mangaka of Please Save My Earth would also be another good candidate- I remember reading in one of her side columns that she’s also a fan of Sailor Moon and both premises were similiar.

PSME did influence Sailor Moon.

Its gotta be Togashi. Odd choice but One could probably do justice to it too. Maybe in a Crystal Tokyo era? Actually neither can do romance, so gonna retract that and put all my cards on the table with Yuki Kodama (Kids on the Slope)

I think CLAMP can write a Sociopath Queen Serenity similar to Shashi and Debonair.

If you want CLAMP to make a Sailor Moon spin-off don't expect a good portrayal of Mamoru because they don't like Mamoru's character in the anime or manga unless they have changed their views since then or it is Naoko writing the script.
