Madman Entertainment are thrilled to announce the acquisition of SAILOR MOON – one of the most beloved and iconic anime series ever made – for distribution in Australia and New Zealand on DVD, Blu-ray and digital platforms.
Not only will the arrangement see the release of all 200 episodes of the original series along with the three feature films and additional specials, but also the previously unavailable series SAILOR MOON S, SAILOR MOON SUPER S and SAILOR MOON SAILOR STARS.
The uncut and uncensored release of SAILOR MOON will feature its original un-cropped 4:3 aspect ratio, along with all original Japanese character names, story elements and relationships, as well as an all-new uncut English dub with a new voice cast.
The first 12 episodes of SAILOR MOON will premiere on AnimeLab.com on November 28, with subsequent episodes from season 1 and other seasons (R, S, SUPER S and SAILOR STARS) to follow throughout 2015
The smash hit SAILOR MOON anime series is inspired by the bestselling manga series created by Naoko Takeuchi and tells the story of Usagi Tsukino, a clumsy but kind-hearted teenage girl who transforms into the powerful guardian of love and justice, Sailor Moon. Meeting allies along the way who share similar fates, Usagi and her team of planetary Sailor Guardians fight to protect the universe from forces of evil and total annihilation.
SAILOR MOON will also receive a deluxe DVD and Blu-Ray release at a date to be determined in 2015. Further details of these deluxe releases will be revealed in the near future.
Finally, in addition to the original series, Madman is also very proud to announce the acquisition of brand new series, SAILOR MOON CRYSTAL – which will begin streaming on AnimeLab.com from November 28, as well as receive a disc release at a yet to be determined date.
