DVD REVIEW:

This is the Sailor Moon Series that fans have been waiting for.  Of the four TV series arc (Sailor Moon, Sailor Moon R, Sailor Moon S and Sailor Moon Super S), Sailor Moon S is finally out and on DVD!!!  

What is so special about this series?  Well, it's not only because we have the introductions of the new sailor senshi scouts but also near the end of the series, it becomes SERIOUS.  The battles become intense and blows the previous two series away in terms of what you have seen from Sailor Moon before. I was lucky to see this when it was out in Japan and I am happy to see it out in the US for fans in Japanese with subtitles and um...English dubbed.  Just wait until Pluto and especially the other Senshi (secret!) comes to play a part in this anime TV series.

The third DVD volume brings back Sailor Moon's daughter from the future "Chibi-Usa" and a little more history on Neptune and Uranus.

Anyway, don't expect great quality for anime since this is an anime TV series not a movie or OAV. It was really good during it's time years ago and the paintings are marvelous but it's not sharp because it's a TV series (lower budget than movies).

So, this is the episode 90-127 storyline arc (episode 104-109).  There are 37 episodes total for the series and 6 episodes on this DVD. 

As for special features, well there are hardly any.  A gallery with hardly anything and a profile of Chibi-Usa.

A series of the Sailor Moon Series that is important to the storyline.  Check it out!
