I have all 4 parts if you guys are interested in seeing more. I'm not trying to promote piracy or anything, just wanted to showcase how great these look, especially since most bootleg DVDs look like trash.

These are actually officially released DVDs I'm pretty sure. Cool-lookin', though!

Nope, definitely not officially released. ADV Films only ever released the DiC Dub across 14 DVD volumes. These bootlegs I bought take the same aesthetics from said DVD Volumes and combines them into 4 DVD volumes instead of 14.

Unless these volumes were intended to be released but never were officially and have recently been discovered by a third party, I'm convinced these are just very well crafted bootlegs that had a lot of work put into them.

How's the video quality? I've seen these sets on eBay and am sort of interested in buying one.

I don't see a problem with owning one of those because the DVDs containing the DIC dub have gone out of print...

The only way the DIC dub will survive will be through bootlegs... and although I don't like the DIC dub, it would be terrible to have a part of the history of Sailor Moon erased.

I don't have the official ADV print DVDs to compare with, so I'll just post screenshots from the episode "Time Bomb".

The DIC dub was actually good in terms of music, script (even though it was not the same as the original Japanese version), and voice acting.

The dub actors doing it today pale in comparison, but that's just my opinion.

The quality is alright. I mean, it's the kind that's been stored onto a videotape by DiC to put post-processed computer images on, but it looks really good in that respect anyways.
