The first of two 23-episode volumes of the first anime series' Blu-ray Collection will go on sale on June 14, and the second will go on sale on August 9. The transfer will be an high-definition "upconversion" of the standard-definition material. The initial release will have a deluxe cover sleeve.

The staff plans to continue the Blu-ray release with Sailor Moon R and three movies.


It was expected after the NHK HD broadcast but it's finally happening now.

EDIT: Could someone translate the rest of the details? I'm curious about the extras.

EDIT 2: Thanks Rika :)

Hopefully they release a cheaper version. I'd totally import if I didn't have to drop $250 per set lol

No mention of the TV commercials (or TV spots) from the DVDs?

Ugh, that's a shame and yet another missed opportunity to include those old LaserDisc & VHS extras that certain people here keep asking about. :|

I love that even with a blu-ray release, Sailor Moon gets the shaft in cool extras. While I like the main covers (it seems like they're using untouched old artwork), the slipcovers look very tacky.

oh so from now on they are going to refer to the 90's anime as PRETTY GUARDIAN instead of PRETTY SOLDIER Sailor Moon?

Is it just me or the slipcovers say Pretty Guardian? Also, in my opinion those are ugly lol

They've been using Guardian instead of Soldier for all the versions of Sailor Moon for about a decade now. I'll be frustrated if these end up having better video quality than the Viz release.

I've seen a few of the HD remastered/upscaled episodes and, comparing them to Viz's version on Hulu, the JP episodes look better to me.

It would have been even more cool if they had gotten Kazuko Tadano herself to draw special new covers for the first two seasons.

Same. If anything, they should've gotten Katsumi Tamegai or Miho Shimogasa to do artwork, since I believe they still work for Toei. Miho did the covers for the Cutey Honey F DVDs awhile back and they look stunning.

Whoever did the artwork for the original movie DVD set was also great, could've brought them back.

Here's the official Toei Video page. I'm really curious why they decided not to alter/update the old artwork this time around. Instead of giving us an "episode guide", they should really give us a booklet with all the previous video release artwork...

It's really disappointing the original laserdiscs have better extras than both the DVD and BD release.

I think the artwork itself is fine, it's how it's used is tacky. Especially that blue background. Yuck!

Well, the official site describes that sleeve as "luxurious." :o

I look forward to the movie Blu-ray comparisons and as for R, I hope they restore the second eyecatch that was cut from the NHK HD broadcast.

I love the art for Vol 2!!!
Never seen this pic before it's obviously not new, but it looks new to me since I've never seen it.
Can't wait to see the art for the rest of the seasons when they're released eventually!!!

I believe that was used for the original LD box? I could be mistaken, it's definitely by Kazuko Tadano.

Can't find them all but Moon is definitely from the back of the box.

The Blu-rays will be region free.

The first press extra is the slip case. No sign of anything beyond that. I missed out on Sailor Moon Crystal Season III as Animate had special box for those who bought all 3 but I bought off Rakuten instead :(. Only JUST realised....

I have a funny feeling that Toei has been saving their best masters of Sailor Moon for bluray. :o

That's pretty likely. I have multiple possible outcomes as to what they'll use:

- A completely new HD remaster that's better than every other one, boasting bright colors, clean audio and overall seems closest to the original vision.

- A shiny new remaster, but it's cropped to widescreen and removes details of the original 4:3 frame.

- An ordinary upscale of the Japanese DVD masters with some noticeable improvement

- The exact same as the Italian R2 releases, but in Blu-Ray definition.

Uhhh, the Italian/Australian DVD release is better than Viz's BD. I think it's safe to say this release will be of better quality than Viz.

Just to be very clear.

These Blurays are UPSCALED. Don't get your hopes up too much.

This says as much...."The video has been upscaled from the original Standard definition picture and had HD conversion treatment so you can enjoy a much clearer picure"

I don't like the covers with the blue background but the others are really nice, in my opinion. They remind me of the artwork that was used for the original release back in the 90s, which I love. I'd love to collect these but it's just not worth the money.
