Kodansha would continue to administer some of the old ancillary rights established under the previous contract (1992-2002) but not the anime which is now administrated partly by Toei and TV Asahi (which includes Sailorstars).
We were not able to confirm exactly what was happening until we pressed Kodansha on the matter in 2002 (and by that time, Kodansha seemed so infuriated with the situation that they may have stopped providing a forwarding address or phone number for Naoko altogether).

 Mutant Frog Travelogue » Blog Archive » Imperial Japanese propaganda and the history of Kodansha
Anyone who has even a passing acquintance with Japanese media or publishing will probably recognize Kodansha, which is still a major publisher of magazines, comics and various types of books.
Looking at the timeline in the more detailed history section of their Japanese language website, we can see that Dai-Nihon Yuubenkai and it’s spinoff, Kodansha, were merged in 1925, creating a company with the combined name of Dai-Nihon Yuubenkai Kodansha.
Since this remained the companies name until 1958 (when it became simply Kodansha Corporation) and this booklet is very much a product of the Imperial era, it must have been published between 1925 and 1945.

Kodansha and Nelvana have co-produced the Babar's Adventures cartoon series, while Nelvana has previously acquired the rights to key Kodansha properties such as Cardcaptors (Cardcaptor Sakura) and Medabots (see "Medabots to Bow on Fox Kids").
Since Kodansha is such a key manga publisher in Japan, the agreement makes perfect sense for Nelvana.
