INTRODUCTION: Sailor Moon is an anime series that first aired in 1992. It was based on a manga series created by Nakao Takeuchi, best known for her Sailor V series at the time. In no time at all, the series had become wildly popular, and in the mid-nineties it was ported to America. Unfortunately, it was severely edited. Some entire episodes were missing and the dialogue was butchered. Fans cried out for uncut episodes. And finally, early in the new millennium, uncensored DVDs were released. The entire S series, the third of five series, is now available uncut on DVD! Read on for my review of this set. BASIC PLOT: This is the third of the five sagas that make up this series. The Black Moon family has been defeated and Chibiusa has returned to the future. However, a new series of villains have arrived on the scene - the Death Busters. These new villains are considerably stronger than any the girls have faced in the past. They go around taking people's pure heart crystals, hoping to find the three that have the legendary artifacts that will cause the Holy Grail to appear - a treasure that grants its user an unrealistic amount of power. There are a number of plot turns and twists to keep things interesting, as well. SERIES OPINIONS: The S series is, by far, the best Sailor Moon saga. I'm glad they decided to do uncut DVDs for it first. This saga features mysterious and deadly villains, plot twists and lots of them, and some of the most interesting characters ever seen in the series. If you're a fan of the series, this is a must see. THE DUB: The dubbed version of the series is in many ways better than previous sagas that have been dubbed, and worse in many ways.Read more ›

A Good MemoryJuly 29 2010
- Published on Amazon.com
This item contains six of the episodes that lead up to the season finale of Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon S, which I loved watching on Cartoon Network when a was younger. Every time I watch this DVD, I remember how I watched the episodes on TV with my Aunt, and it's a good memory, especially because my aunt likes Mimet's personality. If anyone is a fan of Sailor Moon, I highly recommend buying this DVD.

This is a GREAT classic TV series for families! It includes both English AND Japanese,and the best thing is it's all uncut! Gonna be ordering this again to replace the case(which no longer closes) and the CDS(which got scratched up when the case stopped closing properly).
