Sailor Moon Remastered and Uncut Coming Soon

A little while ago, Viz Media started releasing episodes of the original Sailor Moon anime on their anime streaming website.  Although it is currently subtitled, these episodes were remastered and uncut.  Viz Media did announce recently that there would be a new dub for the original anime, and that it would be released on Blu Ray and DVD later this year.  The first twenty three episodes will be released on November 11th.  The release will come in two editions.  The first is a collector’s edition Blu Ray/DVD combo pack comes with three DVDs and three Blu Ray discs containing episodes one through twenty three.  In addition the collector’s edition comes with an artbook and a space to put the second half of the first season when it comes out.  The standard DVD edition just comes with the first twenty three episodes.  The collector’s edition will cost $79.98 and the standard edition will cost $44.82.

With Sailor Moon Crystal still broadcasting new episodes in Japan, it is likely that it will be some time before a dubbed version is released here in America.  Here is a trailer of the collector’s edition being unboxed.
