Also, I just noticed the preview for episode 128 they said "Sailor Moon Supers" like the Japanese version, instead of "Sailor Moon Super S"
Verbally in the dub, or textually in the subtitles?

Verbally in the dub.
Hooray! They pronounced "SuperS" correctly! :circles: :dance:

Just got around to watching the bluray ray of S part 2. The acting is good, but wow the video is like watching an animated jpeg. :sad:

Edit:
Looks like the third disc has better video quality than the first two. Can anyone else confirm?

I know it probably won't help you much, but disc 1 and 2 from the DVD set look fine to me. Well, for DVDs that is. The picture quality wasn't too pixelated or smeary. I'll see if disc 3 on the DVD looks better than 1 and 2.

I'm glad Viz seems to have checked to make sure all the disc menus are correct this time.

You can't really see the frozen grain in the DVDs because the detail is lost. But on the Blu-Rays, it's really noticeable and really does look like gifs LOL also, the line art is loaded with stair stepping.

Freezing grain also is apparently an issue in the Hulu versions of the episodes. You'd think Viz would somewhat go in-depth on certain flaws...

Viz: "Flaws? In our perfect version? Surely you jest, darling. There are no flaws in our superbly high-quality video that we personally enhanced and improved ourselves. Tut tut, to think that our video quality is flawed. Hohoho, what a lark."

Ah, now the frozen grain is something that I did notice. However, I thought that since I've seen it on other shows like Simpsons and King of the Hill, it was just built into the master tapes and decided to think nothing of it. If it's not on the tapes and it's the result of poor remastering, then that's a shame.

It has never been in any version of Sailor Moon ever in existence except Viz's releases. Viz will call these "collector's items" like they did with the pillarboxed set 1 DVDs LOL

^ Speaking of which, does anyone know if Viz fixed Set 1's DVD set aspect ratio problems on any re-pressings?

I'm definitely leaning toward just getting the DVD versions from here on out, and at a reduced price at that. I have many Blu-rays in my collection with questionable/bad PQ, but they were dirt cheap. $60-$70 is way too much for these. Viz's Ranma sets were almost perfect, and cost $20-$30 less.

How did the Pioneer S DVDs look compared to Viz's DVDs?

The only upside to Viz's releases is the color is better and the Japanese audio track is better. Pioneer's Japanese audio tracks sounded like they were recorded in 1932, much like the Japanese track on Viz's Sailor Moon R movie release. Pioneer's DVDs were much crisper and had the line work intact.

ChibiBoi, based on your knowledge of these things and on how Toei's Sailor Moon Blu-rays look, how do you think they're going to handle the episodes in S?

I've been telling myself that while Toei's Blu-rays could certainly be much better, they're still better than the Viz Blu-rays. I can't wait to encode them.

Toei's S Blu-Rays will most likely have the same quality upscales as the HD Japanese airings and their Blu-Rays of classic and R. No surprises there. Toei really only does re-scanning for their films.
