Sailor Moon S: Heart Collection II [Import]
Tuxedo Mask abducted! The heart-snatchers target the sailor Soldiers one by one, but Sailor Moon and her friends manage to thwart them time after time. However, when the evil Professor Tomoe targets Usagi, Tuxedo Mask is captured! To make matters worse, Usagi cannot transform into Sailor Moon and Kaorinite knows her secret identity! Will the other Sailor Soldiers be able to recover Usagi's heart crystal from Kaorinite?
Professor Tomoe continues his campaign to steal the hearts of the pure to gain the power to rule the world. Standing in his way are Serena and her friends Amy, Raye, Lita, and Mina (Usagi, Ami, Rei, Makoto, and Minako in Japanese), the Sailor Scouts. Michiru and the cross-dressing Haruka (Sailors Neptune and Uranus) are seeking the three heart crystals needed to prevent world disaster. Chad, who adores Raye, volleyball star Jamie, who loves Mina, and Serena's Darren/Tuxedo Moon take some heavy abuse from Tomoe's assistant Kaorinite and her shape-shifting demons, although the Scouts save them in the proverbial nick of time. These generally innocuous adventures take a nasty turn in the two-part story that comprises episodes 12 and 13. Haruka is willing to watch Serena die because her heart may contain one of the sought-after crystals. The Scouts destroy Kaorinite on Tokyo Tower, with some help from Haruka and Michiru. But Haruka's icy amorality makes her endorsement of Serena's "if we all work together, no one will have to be sacrificed" rhetoric ring hollow. She seems at least as villainous as Kaorinite--whom Tomoe casually replaces with Yujial, the villain for the next episodes. Episodes: 8. "The Labyrinth of Water! Ami the Targeted," 9. "Save Friends! Moon and Uranus Join Forces," 10. "The Kindness of a Man! Yuichiro, Heartbroken by Rei?" 11. "Retire from the Sailor Soldiers? Minako's Concerns," 12. "Usagi in Terror! Glass Shoes for Her Birthday," 13. "The Pure Heart Stolen! Usagi's Biggest Crisis." Rated 13 and up for violence and brief nudity. Edited editions--which play on the Cartoon Network--are available on video. --Charles Solomon

For those of you who don't know, Sailor Moon is an anime series about a group of girls with the ability to transform into warriors so that they can battle the forces of evil. It sounds like something that's been done to death, but this series pulls it off nicely. Each episode of the series contains a good deal of dramatic action, with some comedy thrown in to make the series a bit more appealing. Originally it was intended for pre-teenage girls in Japan, but it has drawn in fans from many age groups and nationalities. The series began airing in America as early as 1995, but the episodes were horribly edited, and the dialogue was butchered. The poor time slot didn't help things ever, and eventually it vanished without a trace, until it was picked up by the Cartoon Network, which aired several new episodes, but these suffered the same flaws as their early North American predecessors. But at long last, Pioneer has created the solution to the problem - DVDs of the series, in all their original uncut glory. And what better place to start releasing DVDs than the S Saga, which was by far the best set of episodes?
Now on to the DVD itself. You get 6 episodes, which you can view in English or Japanese (if you choose the latter, subtitles have been provided.) There are also some minor extras, such as a gallery with info on Sailor Jupiter. In the episodes, they even left in the eyecatcher sequences!Unfortunately, these DVDs have some flaws. First and foremost, lack of extras. These character galleries are pretty cool, but I would've liked to see something like interviews with people who worked on the series.Read more ›
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 second DVD volume continues the storyline of the girls trying to pass their exams but they start to focus a bit more on Uranus and Neptune and why they are cold to the other Sailor Senshi. By episode 12-13, things now begin to get serious but things get very serious near the end.
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 98-103). 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 Sailor Jupiter and a karaoke ending and textless opening.
Check it out!
