Why this anime even exists
The Internet
1 - Toei is the anime company that owns both Sailor Moon and Dragon Ball Z, and thus never has to produce anything else, ever. OR SO THEY THOUGHT!

2 - So ten years ago, they made a weird-as-hell live action Sailor Moon TV show, with the intention of getting it dubbed and on American TV. Because America has such a long history of putting dubbed live action programming from Asia on in prime time.

3 - America responded by pointing and laughing.

4 - Toei got pissed, and rescinded the North American rights to the Sailor Moon anime from the US companies translating it.

5 - Knowing that Sailor Moon was still a valuable property, Toei basically held it for ransom, telling companies that they could only have the rights to the anime if they committed to buying, translating and airing the live action show.

6 - At this point I should point out that no one in Japan liked the live action show either. Sailor Moon's talking mentor cats were played by plush toys that someone just waved around, their hand barely obscured by a table or whatever. This is what they actually did.

7 - Since the live action show was box office cyanide, no one wanted to buy the rights, so the property just sat there in limbo for a decade.

8 - Then later, the 20th anniversary of Sailor Moon rolled around, coinciding with another exciting event: Toei being in serious financial trouble due to some economic [...] stuff I don't know or care about. [...]

9 - The 20th anniversary was actually two years ago. This remake was announced in 2011, then delayed a half-dozen times. It was the Half-Life 3 of anime for a little while there. Except not really, because this show exists.

10 - So with the remake in production, and a need for new revenue, Toei finally accepted that live action Sailor Moon was a money pit they were never going to dig out of [and] they let Viz buy the rights to the anime alone.
