Vincent Corazza as Darien (Tuxedo Mask) and Alan

Vincent Corazza, best known to fans as the voice of Tuxedo Mask during the S and SuperS seasons of the English dub, will be making an appearance at Kishi Con in Weslaco Texas September 6th to the 8th. Though he only took over as Tuxedo Mask later in the series Vincent Corazza was part of the English dub from the first set of dubbed episodes in his portrayal of the alien Alan from the Doom Tree story arc of Sailor Moon R.

Presale tickets are now on for just $30. Will you see me there? Not likely unless someone wants to fly me to Texas, but I hope all who can attend have a great time.

Sailor Moon animation director Kazuko Tadano confirms a delay of the new anime series in an interview at Cartoonist 2013

Kazuko Tadano from the Sailor Moon anime

Kazuko Tadano, animation director and character designer for the original Sailor Moon series, confirmed in an Italian interview at the Cartoonist 2013 convention in Nice, France that the new Sailor Moon anime series would be delayed, potentially up to December. While Kazuko Tadano will not be working on the new anime series she stated that nothing was in the works, that there will be a large delay and that it will probably be ready in December. While this is once again not an official announcement of a delay this adds to a mountain of evidence that has already suggested a delay is happening. It should also be considered that since Kazuko Tadano is not associated with the show this isn’t first hand information but likely something she’s heard from someone else in the industry. We can’t make any definitive conclusions about the idea that the delay could be until the end of the year, though this does match up with the winter 2014 estimate that was given by a European distributor for Toei a few weeks ago.

Beyond this news she also discussed her work on Sailor Moon. When asked about leaving the series after two seasons of doing character designs and animation direction she mentioned that it was difficult to work with Toei and that she wanted to work on other projects. She also talked about Ail and An, the two aliens from Sailor Moon R, and how they were original characters of her own creation.
