Season DVD Release Schedule
(Jul. 15, 2003)
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.

After 30 episodes, the continuity in the popular "magical girl" series begins building to its climax with a series of revelations. Pegasus is Helios, the Priest of Elysian, the Kingdom of Dreams; his horn is the magic Golden Crystal that could enable the sinister Queen Nehelenia of the New Moon to plunge the universe into darkness. When Nehelenia discovers that Rini/Chibiusa possesses the long-sought Mirror of Beautiful Dreams where Pegasus is hidden, she captures the mini-Princess. Darien/Mamoru's body has synchronized with the Earth, so Nehelenia's real and figurative webs of evil cause him pain. In between revelations, the filmmakers pause for humorous interludes. All the Sailor Scouts mistake Rini/Chibiusa's fascination with Pegasus for a crush on an older boy, and in one singularly odd sequence, Pallapalla turns Rini/Chibiusa into an adult and Serena/Usagi into a child.

Rubeus and the evil sisters from the Negamoon are back and they're pulling out all the stops in a furious series of new attacks!

Poor Serena! From hanging out in bakery shops to falling in love, there are so many things for a young girl to do when she's not in school. Unfortunately, the evil Rubeus and Emerald are keeping Sailor Moon and the Sailor Scouts so busy that there's not much time left for a little fun on the side!
(Nov. 19, 2002)
These adventures follow the pattern established on the previous disc, as the search for the "Mirror of Beautiful Dreams" continues. Zirconia, the agent of the evil Nehelenia, summons the Amazon Quartet (Cerecere, Pallapalla, Junjun, and Vesves) to find the Mirror. Curiously, the four girls in circus costumes refer to Zirconia as "Old Hag" and "she," although the character's English voice is clearly male. The members of the Quartet attack a girl who literally has stars in her eyes for Raye/Rei, and pose as dentists to trap Serena/Usagi and Rini/Chibiusa. Their other victims include a preschool teacher, a starving artist (who's hungry enough to eat Serena's cooking), and two boys from Rini's school. Each member of the foursome uses a "Remless" to battle the Sailor Scouts and Tuxedo Moon, but they're undone when Rini (Chibiusa) summons Pegasus with her "Twinkle Yell."

The filmmakers abruptly change villains as the SuperS adventure continues. The nasty Amazon Trio (Fish-Eye, Tigers-Eye, and Hawks-Eye) tire of being used by Zirconia of the Dead Moon Circus to find the "mirror of beautiful dreams" that contains the Pegasus. When Fish-Eye falls for Darren (Mamoru), the threesome decides they want to become human; Pegasus grants their wish, despite their evil deeds. Zirconia, who serves Nehelenia, "The True Queen of the Moon," calls up the Amazon Quartet. Cerecere, Pallapalla, Junjun, and Vesves are girls in circus attire who also fight with a "Remless," an evil spirit similar to the "Daimohns" in the S continuity. In each encounter, they battle Sailor Scouts Serena, Amy, Raye, Lita, and Mina (Usagi, Ami, Rei, Makoto, and Minako in Japanese) and are finally defeated when Rini (Chibiusa) summons Pegasus with her "Twinkle Yell."

High-pitched, relentlessly fast paced, and filmed in eye-gouging gumball colors, this video series combines two previously released dubbed episodes from the Japanese animated series, along with a couple of new ones. The adventures of a group of schoolgirl superheroes, Sailor Moon is a lighthearted kiddy variation on a ubiquitous Japanese subgenre, stories of alienated adolescents granted paranormal powers and enlisted on the side of virtue in apocalyptic struggles across space and time. Imported to the U.S. in an attempt to create a post-Power Rangers franchise for girls, the show never became a mainstream megahit in the states, although it still has passionate fans (thanks to airings on the Cartoon Network). The chirpy, giggly tone may be off-putting, but the level of visual imagination (and the self-sufficient courage of the young heroines) can be exhilarating, especially when kids and parents watch together. This first volume kicks off with the "secret origin" episode, "A Moon Star Is Born," in which Tokyo middle-school student Serena is transformed into the title character by the occult power of a mysterious locket. She acquires a cute sidekick (a talking cat named Luna), and in the three succeeding episodes she begins to assemble her support team of spunky Sailor Scouts, with names like Sailor Mercury, Sailor Jupiter, and Sailor Venus. In the second episode, "Talk Radio," a phantom radio program is somehow connected with the door-to-door delivery of flowers whose fumes put people to sleep. Also includes the episodes "Slim City" and "So You Want to Be a Superstar," with a total running time of 90 minutes. These edited shows are appropriate for fans age 5 to 12. --David Chute

It will take all three Sailor Scouts to stop Queen Beryl and the forces of evil in the second fantastic volume of Sailor Moon!
Contains 6 great episodes as seen on TV!

The adventures in this second collection of the Super S series (episodes 128 to 166) follow a single pattern. Zirconia sends out Fish-Eye, Tigers-Eye, or Hawks-Eye to find the person with the beautiful dream that will enable them to capture the Pegasus. Why they need the Pegasus to conquer the world is never explained. The trio flees the Sailor Scouts, leaving a "Remless," an evil spirit similar to the "Daimohns" in the S series, to fight them. Serena (Usage) and Rini (Chibiusa) save the innocent victims and destroy each Remless, with the help of Amy, Raye, Lita, and Mina (Ami, Rei, Makoto, and Minako) and Tuxedo Mask (Darien/Mamoru). Rini continues to strengthen her psychic link with the Pegasus and to summon him in times of need with her "Twinkle Yell," but the villains from the Dead Moon Circus remain unaware of their bond. Rated 13 Up: Violence, grotesque imagery, brief nudity. --Charles Solomon

The Super S series encompasses episodes 128 to 166 of this popular TV show and follows the S series, in which the Sailor Scouts defeated the Death Busters. During an eclipse, the eerie Dead Moon Circus appears in Tokyo. Ringmaster Zirconia sends out the Amazon Trio (Fish-Eye, Tigers-Eye, and Hawks-Eye) to find a "mirror of beautiful dreams," which will enable them to capture the Pegasus, a winged unicorn that forms a psychic bond with Chibiusa. Pegasus gives Serena and Chibiusa new weapons and the ability to transform into Super versions of themselves. They need all the power they can muster to protect not only their innocent friends, but a nun, Artemis the cat, and Serena's mother Ikuko from the machinations of the Amazon Trio, despite help from Tuxedo Moon and Scouts Amy, Raye, Lita, and Mina (Ami, Rei, Makoto and Minako in Japanese). The six episodes here are the uncut originals and rated 13 Up for violence, grotesque imagery, and brief nudity. --Charles Solomon

The quest for the Magic Heart Crystals grows increasingly baroque as the sinister Professor Tomoe replaces his lieutenant, Eugeal, with the star-struck Minet. Sailor Scouts Serena, Amy, Raye, Lita, and Mina (Usagi, Ami, Rei, Makoto, and Minako in Japanese) continue their difficult alliance with Michiru and Haruka, Sailors Neptune and Uranus, and are joined by Setsuna/Sailor Pluto. These three Scouts have come from the past and the future to aid in the struggle. The presence of the three Crystals causes the Holy Grail to appear (a cross between a Fabergé Easter egg and an urn, rather than the legendary chalice), but who will wield its awesome power, the long-sought Messiah or the evil Messiah of Silence? This apocalyptic crisis often takes a back seat to the Sailor Scouts' exams, snacks, and romances--as fans of Sailor Moon expect. Rated 13 Up: violence and brief nudity. --Charles Solomon

High school entrance exams are approaching, and Serena and her friends Amy, Raye, Lita, and Mina (Usagi, Ami, Rei, Makoto, and Minako in Japanese) need to study--especially Serena, whose grades have never been good. But Serena is easily distracted. When Haruka appears on the scene, she and the other Scouts immediately fall for him--only to discover "he" is a girl who often dresses as a boy. Haruka is almost always seen with Michiru, but there's nothing to the relationship. Serena is also busy leading the Sailor Scouts into the battle. The evil Professor Tomoe and his assistant Kaorinite keep unleashing shape-shifting daimons to steal the crystalline hearts of the pure, which will enable them to rule the world. The Scouts and Tuxedo Moon need the help of Sailor Neptune and Sailor Uranus to defeat the evil doers. These powerful, aloof warriors are searching the world for three mysterious and potent talismans. The combined power of Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Moon produces the redoubtable weapon, the "Spiral Heart Moon Rod." Many fans rank the Sailor Moon "S" season (the third), which comprises episodes 90 to 127, as the best in the series. More cynical viewers may notice that reused footage makes up about one-third of each episode. Edited versions of these episodes played on the Cartoon Network (and are available on VHS). These uncut episodes are rated 13 and older for violence and brief nudity. --Charles Solomon
