I mean, they also misspelled "Guardian" in one of their YouTube videos (I believe it was even in the video's thumbnail) so.......yeah.

One of the things I don't like about Sailor Moon under Viz is that it seems to be the exception to most anime when it comes to "let's stay out of politics and just have fun."
I hate having to defend Viz.

They’re not doing anything political. Erasing homophobia, while arguably annoying in the mere act if being censorship, is not being political.

...homophobia...censorship...political.
While I used to be an extremely political person, now at age 35 I've just really grown tired of all the preachiness. Whether you're calling me a sinner and welcoming me into a church, or you're calling me a bigot and banning me from a social media group, I just want to be left alone to enjoy my life while I still can. I don't care what most people have to say about me, because people have been saying bad things about me since I was a little kid, and while they may be right and I may be wrong, I don't really care anymore.

It is probably for this reason that when it comes to anime, I have largely settled into moe/CGDCT type shows. You don't have to deal with the political correctness and can just have fun watching your favorite show. Plus those type of shows, especially music-club-themed ones, are better subbed than dubbed.

Honestly I haven't started on Part 1 of Stars yet, because I've been watching Love Live and the new Nanoha movies. When I finish watching Sunshine, I'll see what this is all about. But in general I prefer things that don't aggravate me with preachiness. While most anime doesn't do this, Viz's dub of Sailor Moon tends to.

I'll be honest, not digging this final cover. Size proportions don't seem consistent, and Sailor Chibi Moon shouldn't be there at all. How about Chibi Chibi or the Sailor Starlights? Hell, I would have even taken Tuxedo Mask being on the cover. But I am happy to know November 12 is the date to save.
