The dorkiest quest

There's a great long-form essay on Kotaku about one woman's quest to find video evidence of the long-lost attempt at rebooting Sailor Moon into a half live-action, half-animated American kids' series. The essay is worth reading in full, but here's a representative sample:
"After speaking with the dead show’s creator, animator, biggest fans, and haters, I think I have finally uncovered the full history of anime’s white whale. It involves a quarter-million-dollar unsuccessful investment, a drugged-up cat, no shortage of corporate intrigue, a Storage Wars-style drama, several eBay bidding wars, and, finally, a dusted-over DigiBeta reel in a retired millionaire’s Florida garage—which brought its own surprises."
