Do we have actual proof that new masters exist from Toei for S / Super S / Stars ?.

So far there has been no HD broadcast or home video release of any of the 3 in Japan

Now Madman are saying on Twitter that they aren’t releasing past Sailor Moon S on iTunes, Play, or any other digital format and Crystal won’t be digital until April. This sucks for digital only people!

If Toei is providing Australia an "HD" master/remaster(for Sailor Moon S) before releasing it in Japan, it could be a request made from Toei.

Maybe I didn’t explain it well. Madman aren’t release any more of Sailor Moon Classic via digital, No Sd no HD nothing. Crystal was HD from the start and they are delaying it on digital for an unknown reason. It’s available on Blu-ray in AU and US and digitally in US. There’s no good reason why.

Blu-ray LE: Sailor Moon Super S (Season 4) Part 1 (Eps 128-146) Limited Edition (Blu-Ray) - Blu-ray
Blu-ray: Sailor Moon Super S (Season 4) Part 1 (Eps 128-146) (Blu-Ray) - Blu-ray

^Reminder that the DVDs for this (and Stars) use the Japanese upscale and not the Italian master.

Moon Prism Power Collection

Sailor Moon: Moon Prism Power Collection - DVD

This set is strange, It looks to be a DVD re-release of season 1 part 1 but the complete set for that season came out not too long ago and the listed extras implies that this will have new discs.and new packaging.

Huh. That's unexpected. To be honest I've been waiting for the S movie, but SuperS is still good. Have I missed the movie or is it not available yet?

The Madman BDs are the same quality as the Japanese BDs. I replaced my Region 4 DVDs with the BDs, but honestly you can upscale the DVDs with your Blu-Ray player and retain all the detail, since the BDs are a bit scrubbed.

I upgraded to BD because the discs are more durable and with better packaging. It's probably a better investment than DVDs.
