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.

So when I got into a Sailor Moon mood I turned to the Japanese version, subbed. This anime has so many great moments in it, it'll make you laugh and, possibly, cry at times. I became so addicted to this classic anime that I just had to own the DVDs! I ordered this season first and watched all the episodes in a few days and was left wanting more.
This boxset is great! It has eight DVDs in it containing all of the first 46 episodes, uncut! Some people have complained about the quality of the sound and the fact that it is in mono, but it doesn't bother me. There is a reason for the volume button. ;) There is no English audio, just Japanese with English subtitles.
For those that are not aware, this boxset is the ONLY official Region 1 release. It has eight discs and is made by ADV. So anyone selling the first season with four discs is selling a bootleg. Since Sailor Moon DVDS are no longer made, the originals go for a high price, some times over 200 dollars! The bootleg versions are usually priced a little lower, so watch out for what you buy if you are planning on getting this or any other SM sets!
And yes the sound is lacking, and it does look like someone stood there with a camera and shook it as it was filmed, but trust me, it's easy to get over when you see some of your favorite, classic episodes of Sailor Moon, espically the uncut versions and "lost episodes" such as the one where Sailor Moon goes to a bar, the one where the Mars, Mercury, and Moon go to a haunted house on their vaction, or the one with Sailor Venus past, which episodes never aired in the dubbed English version.
The jokes are funnier, and the episodes are relitivly longer because everything was left in (any nudity or violence), so there won't be that thing where you watch Sailor Moon says and are just like "Hey! That never happened in the show!"
And another thing is all the sexes are finally correct, such as Ziocite or however you spell it being a male instead of a female. Scary but true.
But as I stated, anyone who has always wondered what was the real ending of "Day of Destiny", with each Sailor's death and the true fight behind Serena and Darian (which was awsome) not to mention the Japanese music, (or the orginal Sailor Moon Music) than definatly by this box set...then go for the second season.
