Editorial Reviews

Based on a manga by Naoko Takeuchi, Sailor Moon is the story of a teenage girl who meets a magical cat who gives her super powers. She becomes the leader of a team of brave girls, known as the Sailor Warriors. Sailor Moon has long been justifiably renowned for the strength of its plot, its direct and honest treatment of romance and, in this uncut version, a realistic and unflinching acceptance of death as a necessary possible consequence of a righteous fight.

Thank you, thank you, thank you ADV! If you have seen the dubbed version of Sailor Moon and not the original, you have something to look forward to with this box set. This 8-DVD set goes from the beginning of the Sailor Moon episodes up through the Queen Beryl battle, which by the way was hacked up and turned into one episode for the US dubbed version. Now you can see both episodes and what REALLY happens in the battle with Queen Beryl.
For the people who think Sailor Moon is a kids show, you are mistaking this original version with the US TV show. This anime otaku assures you that the complete and uncut collection is nothing like the one you have seen on TV! In the TV version entire episodes were cut out, scenes and dialogue were changed, voices were weird(Luna is not supposed to sound old!), and everything was edited to make it 'appropriate' for kids. However, the Sailor Moon Season One - Complete and Uncut collection is better suited for teen-adults and is much better in general. If you haven't seen uncut Sailor Moon, you haven't seen Sailor Moon. Every anime fan should check out this box set.

Welcome to what will certainly be a new dimension of the Sailor Moon series. For the American fans that have been exposed to the youth-friendly DiC cuts, ADV has taken the right step by introducing the first season the way it was meant to be seen. All episodes are uncut, taken off of the original Japanese masters, and fitted with English subtitles.
Many details will stand out between the American release and the unedited, original version. Perhaps this stands out the most in the final two episodes. Due to its graphic content, the final two episodes of the first season were condensed to a single episode for the American release. Here, however, you will be able to see how the Sailor Scouts' battle with Queen Beryl really ended, by seeing the final two episodes in their entirety.
Parents should be warned, however, that with the added scenes comes more suggestive dialogue and more violence, therefore this DVD box set is not recommended for young kids. (ADV's rating is Age 15+)
If I am not mistaken, ADV will also be coming out with the second season of Sailor Moon, uncut. If ADV proceeds with this release, it will be to delight of many Sailor Moon fans. That release will only leave us with the final season, Sailor Stars. There is much discussion about the more intense content in Stars, so while the release of Sailor Moon's final season in the American market is still up in the air (and may be for a long time), be sure to get your hands on the first season of Sailor Moon, uncut, which is worth the high price and is a must for anyone's Sailor Moon collection.

C'mon guys. Stop complaining. The sound is bad because it *IS* Mono, and it's from 92, and on top of that Toei had faulty master tapes. I personally didn't mind the sound at all. Trust me, after 15 hours straight, you won't care anymore. Besides, it's really only the opening and endings that are muffled.

Also, anyone hoping for extras is just silly. Yes, it would have been nice to see the openings and endings without the credits, but we really don't have a right to complain or expect that.

Anyway. The show is WONDERFUL. I was a dubbie once - I got hooked in 95 on the chopped up DiC dub of it, and I've been a rabid fan ever since. I'm really happy being able to see this. It's so much better than what was shown here (the US), it's indescribable. I see Sailor Moon in a very different (though better) light now.

It's a must have for any Sailor Moon fan with $50 to spare (I bought mine new for $49 at another website). :)

Like everyone else I was absolutely thrilled to read that the complete, uncut episodes of Sailor Moon would be made available on DVD. However, I wanted to post a few caveats to anyone who is about to buy this set. They should not stop you from buying it, but you may want to know.
1. The menuing on these DVDs is very limited - just one menu where you select which episode to play. You CANNOT turn off the English subtitling on the episodes. Although most people won't care, I would be happier if I could turn off the subtitles sometimes to concentrate on the video.
2. So far I find the sound quality pretty crummy! During the episodes themselves it sounds okay, but the music during the opening and closing sequences sounds really muffled.
Well, now that you know the couple of downsides to this box set, here are the great things about it!
1. You get each complete episode with the opening animation, commercial break "eyecatch", and closing sequence. If you are familiar with the dubbed version of Sailor Moon, this is a treat. The scenes flow together unobtrusively without the computer animated tiaras and sparkles that were inexplicably added to the dubbed version. You may notice bits of mild violence that were cut out for censors.
2. You get to hear the characters' real voices! Usagi isn't so ditzy. Luna isn't an old lady. Beryl and Jadeite are more threatening. English credits for the original voice cast have been carefully added to the ending, so you can learn the names of the characters' voice actors.
3. The packaging itself is beautiful: There is a durable foil slipcover, with two snap cases inside.
4. You get all 46 episodes, an entire season, for a pretty reasonable price.
