Sorry this review is long, but I wanted to make sure everybody got all the details of this as possible. A lot of people are complaining about the animation piece itself. Granted, I have only watched four episodes so far, but I have not see an issue and their was no issue from what my daughter told me (who is usually a bit to honest in my opinion about things.) Overall, for 24 bucks I think it is definitely well worth it. If it would of been 100 dollars I probably would have been upset, but for 24 dollars this is the best deal you are going to find in order to get Sailor Moon episodes without youtube. I plan on purchasing more of the dvd's. I will keep my post updated if I notice anything that is out of place. On an extra side note:
I do feel that a lot of the detail seems blurred out and that the color does seems brighter. It's not absolutely terrible in my opinion however as someone who grew up watching Sailor Moon on Toonami when I was younger, I do feel the new brighter images with blurred details does take away from the original feel of the series. Addressing the new English dub with new voice actors; I don't love it but I can't say I hate it so far either. I am used to the old voices and enjoyed them, but I also know there are many fans who even preferred the Japanese voices over the original English dub mostly because they found Serena/Usagi to have a really annoying voice. Those who didn't care for the original voices might prefer the re-dub.
I've only watched a bit of the re-dub so far, but what I can say of the new voices is the overall voice acting is pretty good. My only really complaints about it so far are that I feel the original voices had more power to them, more emotion, and the villains sounded a bit more evil. I feel the new dubs, while decent overall do take a bit away from the feel of some of the characters which affects the feel of the series. It could have been nice if they could have had a 3rd language option where they had the series with the original English audio. I would have also liked for the video to be able to fit the size of my television better. I am not super thrilled with the way the re-release turned out but I don't think it's super bad unless you want to nit-pick at everything.
I loved Sailor Moon growing up and to this day have never stopped. Unfortunately when I was a kid I wasn't able to obtain any of the series on its original VHS or DVD releases and now trying to get any of the original is far too costly for me. So even if I feel this release could have been better, I don't feel it's as terrible as some others might think, but that's my opinion, and again, it depends how picky you are. Right now I am just grateful to be able to watch one of my all time favorite anime series I loved in my childhood again even if it's not in the exact condition I grew up with.
