Toei announces French language deal
Looks like Europe will be getting one of the most sought classic anime licenses. Toei Animation Europe has announced a DVD distribution deal for Sailor Moon has been signed with Viz Media Europe. The agreement covers "all the French-speaking European countries."
Toei lays out plans for Viz Media Switzerland to release the complete Sailor Moon saga in Germany (5 series/ 200 episodes) in German and German-subtitled Japanese, while Kazé will release the first series (46 episodes) in all the French-speaking European countries in French and French-subtitled Japanese.
A German newsletter issued from Viz Media Switzerland pencils in the DVD release for late this year or early 2014.
