This is just a guess, but I think the licensing rights would be too expensive. I'm not sure how much of an audience it would get -- sure the show is popular but it looks very dated (like it was filmed in '89!) so it doesn't look as polished as some of the material being produced today. Finally, there's the sad fact that Saturday morning cartoons are gone, gone, gone.
Then again I could be completely wrong. The recent success of the My Little Pony cartoon shows a girls' show with neat characters could become very popular with its target audience and beyond. It'd be a matter of making sure it comes on a timeslot when someone can actually see it without hacking it to make the show more American.
A girl in my high school class gave a thoroughly detailed presentation for her final research project on why the English dub of Sailor Moon was awful and should never aired here again. It involved terrible translations and rewriting characters and storylines to make no sense. Her biggest objection was that two lesbian characters were made cousins. This girl, by the way, was a genius and class valedictorian.
Its really sad that this presentation constitutes a significant percentage of what I remember being taught in high school. Certainly not much calculus survived.
She'd be right, along with the dropped episodes (the entire last season along with lots of other ones along the way) combined the no death/no christian imagery policy.
IIRC it's in a bit of a rights purgatory - the Japanese company has been sitting on the main rights for a while, but I think there's still some residual rights for side properties held by enough other companies that nobody in NA can get all the rights at once anyway. It's coming out in non-English markets now, and the anime industry is hurting, so this cash cow will likely be out soon enough.
Nah, I'm not into dolls.
I dunno guys. It sounds like you've thought about this a lot more. Why don't you do it? I won't make fun.

ok so this is a dude who talks through his sailor moon dolls and you guys are debating the merits of his arguments, which makes me sad, for all of you
I think its the My Little Pony. Before we know it half the videos posted here will be girls cartoons.
@Xiphias I can't find it in my heart to make fun of sailormoonred.
@Cena_mark PoeTV is the greatest website in the world
All the videos on it are made for little girls

What the fuck is wrong with this guy? I don't say this often but watching kids cartoons may be the LEAST of this guys problems.
and playing with dolls based on a show made for preteen girls!
