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.

Packaging: The box is done pretty nicely. The two single cases are the ones that make the grade lower. It has "A Sailor Moon like you've never seen before" on the back with scene cathes with episode titles and dic information on the nack. The front is horribly done pictures of Sailor Moon ADV has produced. It's OK, but defenitly nothing to brag about. 8/10 80% B-
Extra's: In disc 4 & 8, they have ADV previews for upcoming series. I dont care, because the episodes itself what we expected. Still I'm dissapointed none of them are Sailor Moon realted 6/10 60% D-
Video: Dear god does this one suck the most. The video quality is the WORST I"VE EVER SEEN. Unlike Season 2, the colors are faded and the video looks like its being shown on a projector. Most people saying "Well the shows 10 years old" has nothing to do with it! ADV either got bad masters, or used bad equiptment. It has nothing to do with the show, I have fansubs with 5x better sound nad video, and their reccorded of of TV Ahashi the day they permeired. I'd give it a D+ at best
Audio: Muffled, and staticky. What's more to say? 7/10 C- Yuck
Content: The 1st season is pretty good for the most part, there's some episodes that i dont care for. For the most part the subtitle track could use ALOT of work, It's horrible! Pioneer was way more accurate, and I didn't like how they used dub terms. They changed Moon Stick to Crescent Moon Wand, Sailor Soldier to Sailor Warrior... jeezz. Well, atleast they kept Negaverse, and SAilor Scout out. I would get rid of it the 1st day I got it if they put "Sailor Scout". ADV completly failed to satisfy me 8/10 B-
Menuing: All I expected. If you've seen the PIONEER Movies (R, S, and the Super S movie, you'll know what I mean). There is just the main menu playing Moonlight densetsu, with a snapshot of the episode playing (A clip), with the title at the bottom. Pretty boring, It leaves a fansub feeling D, 6/10
MPAA Rating: NONE
My Rating: 12+.
ADV Rating: Suggested 15+, (although it also says: Contains Mild animated violence, and mature situations. Parental Guidence Suggested. )
Rated 15+ for: Fantasy Violence, theamatic elements, and subtle nudity and language.
(Subtle nudity and language means: very light)
The packaging is beautifully designed; the episode guide is cool and useful; the DVDs are set up so layer changes aren't apparent; the chapter breaks occur in logical places; the shows themselves are great. It's wonderful to be able to see everything as it was meant to be seen. I was surprised that Zoicite is not as different from the dubbed [female] Zoicite as I expected him to be, but the season climax/finale is dramatically different from the dubbed version.
Some of the funny lines from the dubbed version (like "Hey there, Sailor Ladies--goin' my way?") are gone, naturally, but there are occasional gems in the subtitles. It's great fun to see Sailor Moon say "D'oh!"
If I could give this 4 3/4 stars, I would, but I can't quite justify giving it 5 because I think the subtitles could use just a bit more proofreading.
For the people who think Sailor Moon is a kids show, you are mistaking this original version with the US TV show. This anime otaku assures you that the complete and uncut collection is nothing like the one you have seen on TV! In the TV version entire episodes were cut out, scenes and dialogue were changed, voices were weird(Luna is not supposed to sound old!), and everything was edited to make it 'appropriate' for kids. However, the Sailor Moon Season One - Complete and Uncut collection is better suited for teen-adults and is much better in general. If you haven't seen uncut Sailor Moon, you haven't seen Sailor Moon. Every anime fan should check out this box set.
