All the seasons of Sailor Moon Box sets are available on http://www.animecollector.com
They look very real but it seems that they are all bootlegs. I've never seen a full screenshot of ones of the dvds before. does anyone have one fo these box sets. it would be cool to see the quality of the stars box set and stuff.

The screenshots on the site are very misleading for they are too small.

Those box sets look beautiful but they look like bootlegs even at first sight.

I have the first season one, it's definately a bootleg! the pics on the inside to tell you the eps. are Exactly the same! So you only know the names and order of half the episodes, my best friend has the season 2 ones, we didn't know they were bootleg until we got them!
To tell the truth, that SuperS one doesn't look that bad, but I'm sure it's a bootleg.
I've been looking to buy the StarS season on DVD, but I don't want to get a bootleg necessarily, if I can avoid it, but I don't know what the official one is supposed to look like. >_< I have the season on VHS right now, but I got that for Christmas awhile ago from my dad, and it's a fansubbed version. ^_^

There is no official Sailor Stars DVD set and I doubt there will ever be one. I mean, what profit would a show bring if it were more than ten years old? It seems like the DVD producers (or any responsible persons for that matter) think that people only care for new stuff...
I think there's no need to wait any longer. The Stars season wasn't aired in NA and we can be sure it's for specific reasons, so there won't be a dub (at least, it is quite possible there won't be any). Second, as long as Toei doesn't give out rights to make a subbed DVD Collection for the last Sailor Moon season, so that seems improbable too.
But we can still wait a few years, but will the bootleg still be available? :(

Well, I was just wondering if there was an official subbed set. ^_^ I'm going to buy a set anyway. I'm not looking for a dubbed version b/c I know they don't exist and probably won't unless it's fandubbed. I just wasn't sure if there was ever an official subbed set made, but I didn't think so.

I have a bootleg Stars boxset. I don't ENCOURAGE bootlegged anime, but I really wanted Stars on DVD. Actually, the one my friend has is much better than mine. I got the crappy bootleg. :P But someone else bought it for me, so I guess I can't complain.

Bootlegs or not, they're very nice. I'd like to get my hands on some if I could.

For Christmas one year I got the StarS Season on VHS, it's fansubbed, but I got it as a gift, and they're pretty cool actually, they give cool insights on stuff happening in the episodes, like explaining that saying someone has a "cute face" is kinda common, and explaining that in one episode a weird saying Usagi is using that doesn't make any sense is supposed to be a tongue twister. I never would've understood stuff like that otherwise! So it's pretty cool, but I really want the DVDs now.

 Post subject: About Sailor Moon DVD
PostPosted: Sat Sep 01, 2007 6:19 am 
Hi,
I just need your advice or tips.
I am trying to buy DVDs from this website : www.sailormoonshop.com
but I don't know if the qualities are good as it says.
I have read the feedbacks which are good but haven't actually contacted a person who purchased DVDs there.
So I am really confused and even if they are bootlegs but with the qualities as good as the originals then I am willing to buy them.
I need your advice!
And I have ordered from MAC? and FX but they were so bad that I get kind of scared to take a risk again with the higher price.
Thank you so much~

One thing for sure is all Stars boxsets are bootleg.

Well Toei did release a small pressing of Stars on DVD but its only one pressing and it was only in Japan. Its so rare its almost impossible to find.

Stars was never officially released in the US

You probably meant that "all Stars box sets subtitled in English are bootleg"? O_O
Sailor Stars DVDs sold at http://cdjapan.co.jp & http://amazon.co.jp are certainly licensed and official.

Well, unfortunately the licence for Sailor Moon in North America are completely gone for now. The first 4 seasons were released in box sets by ADV Films and Pioneer. They are no longer available but you can still get them from ebay sellers and stuff. There are DVD volumes available in Japan for all seasons but there are no subtitles because well, it's released in Japan.
heres what they looks like.

Season 1

Season 2 - R -

Which is Sailor Moon's official website? Remember that Sailor Moon is something of a franchise and different companies have rights to different parts of it.

Well there is Sailor Moon channel- http://sailormoon.channel.or.jp/
It done by Bandai which has some rights to Sailor Moon merchandise

Toei who did the Sailor Moon anime also mentions sailor Moon in their catalog but its nothing much over there- http://www.toei-anim.co.jp/english/cata ... _girl.html


Someime back Sailor Moon Channel (which I take to be something of an official website for Sailor Moon) listed the re-release of the Sailor Moon anime on DVD. They still list it. Its hard because its in Jap. Well click the light blue tab at the bottom (the one that says something-DVD-something) then click on the second option from the top on the right hand side. It doesn't seem to be for sale though

Now, the only place I cant find it is on this site but their prices are really steep. This is definitely authentic because its by Toei- http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-13-71-a7- ... 0-rxd.html

Actually, its true. Stars was only released officially by Toei, Japan-only, on DVD. It was converted from the laserdisc version. Its in Japanese with no subs. It is the one I mentioned in my last post and the pictures tranphuong1990 posted. That is the *ONLY* official Stars DVD release.

If you see any other Stars DVD, its a bootleg.

Play-Asia is a Hong Kong reseller, while CDJapan sells DVDs directly from Japan, and cheaper than Play-Asia:

Sailor Stars Vol. 1 at Play Asia - $37.90 USD

Sailor Stars Vol. 1 at CDJapan - $32.74 USD
