Sailor Moon the Legend Continues with Revision for the Next Generation!

In celebration of her 20th anniversary the one heroine known to many as Sailor Moon, in Japanese known as 美少女戦士セーラームーン Bishōjo Senshi Sērā Mūn?, originally translated as Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon later being known as Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, has revived herself through VIZ Media, LLC (VIZ Media), the largest distributor and licensor of manga and anime in North America this past year.

Thus this means the era that once was known in the 90's and 2000's has been brought back in an all new way! This time Sailor Moon the original series has been completely brought back in completed format referring to having all of the seasons 5 in all, specials, 3 movies, and more in full uncut fashion staying true to the Japanese version, including the names, music, and censorship of uncut fashion, plus there's an all new English voice cast to back it all up! Yes this will feature an all new voice cast for this new English re-dub of the classic series!

The standard DVD and Blu-ray/DVD Combination packs each contain 23 episodes along with bonus features of trailers, behind the scenes footage, convention coverage and more! Receiving the standard DVD edition it comes with the 3-disc set containing all of the features and 23 episodes but wait only 23? Yes this is only the first half of season one! Again only the first half of season one! Viz Media has taken the rights to Sailor Moon and will be releasing the series on DVD/Blu-Ray of course but in halfers, not in complete seasons, perhaps once everything comes out, a full on collection set will make its' way to the home headquarters but for now this is what is offered.

As far as the DVD set goes the quality of the episodes is much cleaner, in comparison to the original TV airings or VHS or DVDs of the past, the colors are more vivid, picture again being cleaner, audio quality is top notch, with the voice actors replacing the original set doing their best jobs, through the first set of episodes, getting better as the season goes along.  These episodes being presented in 480p standard video format by the way, making the picture still solid grounds for quality and quantity. Also it's noted that this series comes in of course English language but also includes the Japanese audio and English subtitles for those who prefer the series in another variation they have different ways to enjoy it.

All in all, Sailor Moon is about Usagi Tsukino is a clumsy but kindhearted teenage girl who transforms into the powerful guardian of love and justice, Sailor Moon. Meeting allies along the way who share similar fates, Usagi and her team of planetary Sailor Guardians fight to protect the universe from forces of evil and total annihilation!

If you were and still are into the beloved classic series then this is it! It's better quality with a superb casting job, audio is spot on, that brings the legend we all know and love back to life for the next generation to enjoy and behold just as previous generations have done.
