After over a decade at the top, Sailor Moon's presence is fading quickly. In the mid-90s, it dominated the anime scene, carrying Cartoon Network to record-high weekday ratings. Now, it's a fraction as powerful, seen only on a few local stations in pre-dawn timeslots. Next week, all of ADV's Sailor Moon video releases will be given "out of print" status, and Pioneer's discs can't be far behind. Even in Japan, merchandise sales, the driving force of the Sailor Moon franchise, have screeched to a halt. By any account, Sailor Moon is on her last legs.
