Sailor Moon - Season One - Complete and Uncut (Japanese Language Edition) [Import]
What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
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.

Fact is, you can get it for 50 bucks around here (from individual sellers through Amazon, click on "buy new and used"), and thats GREAT. Anywhere else is 150.
If all you've ever seen is the stupid DIC version, and you loved it anyway, this is like your painfully ugly child finally going to prom and looking like a queen. The jokes are funnier, the plots make more sense, and the fight scenes are OH SO MUCH COOLER. One thing that really stuck out was the final battle with Queen Beryl, and the scouts "deaths" beforehand. In the Dic version, they tell you the scouts are "in the negaverse". In the real version, they actually die. In very cool ways I might add. You just like them more...for actually being heroic.
Some Episodes were edited to death in the Dic version, like Serena's first kiss. Fun and important stuff was cut out for no reason.
Also, this collection has whole EPISODES that Dic took out. Such as the Episode devoted to telling you about Venus' old british boyfriend. A seriously cool story.
All in all, you'll get the same characters you fell in love with, better explained, funnier, more personable, more extreme, and with more story behind all of them.
Oh, and Zoisites a boy.
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.
The audio isn't bad....well, that's a lie, it's bad, but if you crank up the volume on the TV and DVD it comes out just fine(and if you have a stereo hooked up it sounds REALLY cool)and a side note, watch out for the opening and ending songs, they get LOUD if you follow the above suggestion....unless you like that kind of thing. *shrugs* Oh, and in certain places there is a crackling sound in the background, but that goes away as soon as the "camera" view is moved, so no biggie.
The video definately isn't the greatest, but I've seen WAY worse...have any of you only had one version of the Labyrinth, taped off of Disney chanel back when there were no commercials on a very old VCR for several years? Well if not, I can tell you for sure that that is much, much worse. In certain scenes it gets a little blurry, but this was an old anime, what more can you expect?
Yet, in spite of all these faults, this is still a 5 star DVD. Where the Audio and Video is lacking, the episodes are definately worth it. I really love the one where they go to a hotel where the workers dress as monsters (which really freaks Usagi, and sometimes Rei, out, which makes for some super funny moments) I'd tell you the name of the episode, but that would mean moving and I'm just not up to doing that for the moment ^.^ Plus you get all of the cut episodes (including the mentioned one above)
In short, I'd definately reccomend this DVD!
