Yesterday we shared a video from Anime North 2013 where John Stocker mentioned that he had heard that FUNimation was going to be doing the dub for the new Sailor Moon anime. Some clarification has now come from the FUNimation Facebook page stating simply that “FUNimation does not hold the license for Sailor Moon.”.
This is pretty straightforward. Whether or not some future deal has FUNimation doing the dub for the new anime is something we can only speculate about. As of now they simply do not hold the rights. There is not currently any indication of anyone holding the rights to the Sailor Moon anime, old or new, in North America. Should we get any reliable information to the contrary we will be sure to let you know about it.
