Default Sailor Moon - Complete BluRay Collection

Hi guys,

I just found out this is coming out next month. Does anyone know if it is the uncensored version from Japan? Or is it the censored version that went to the USA?

Here is an article on the different versions:

https://www.madman.com.au/catalogue/...imited-edition

Also, does anyone know which version ran on ĎCheez TVí in Australia on weekday mornings back in mid-late 90ís?

It aired on Agro's Cartoon Connection not Cheez TV, it's clearly the uncensored edition and newer English dub.

The DIC English dub aired on Agro's, there was no differences unlike Cardcaptor Sakura on Cheez TV which dubbed the OG Themes.

I am pretty sure the old DIC dub has been consigned to the dustbin of history (allegedly Naoko Takeuchi was not a fan of the changes) so all the releases you can find nowadays are uncut and including the final season, with a new English dub. Madman's boxset will be the same discs as their individual season blurays from a few years back - these are all uncut and with the original Japanese audio.

If you want to get pedantic about video, the picture quality for the first 3 seasons may be better on the Australian DVD release than Blu-ray, since for those Madman used the video masters from the Italian release, whereas the Blu-ray uses Toei's fairly heavily noise-reduced upscale. Either is better than the US release which used Viz's own somewhat dodgy upscale for the first 3 seasons before switching to Toei's for season 4. But in terms of having an un-messed-with version in terms of content either way is fine.

I grew up on the original dubbed version (Terri Hawkes will forever be *my* Serena/Usagi). It was - I seem to recall - actually the highest rated show to run on Agro's Cartoon Connection, and I remember setting the VCR every morning before I headed off to school.

Yes, this is the version that I watched, is there a reason they used a new dub? And Iím guessing the old dub wonít be on the BluRay?

Since the 90s dub was heavily edited to "English it" and to do stuff like replace the lesbian scout and stuff. Even if the blu-ray had the old English dub it wouldn't fit within the episode due to stuff like the PSAs at the end.

From what I understand, there were whole scenes (and even a few whole episodes?) skipped when the show was originally dubbed and streamlined for its' run in the 90's. This couldn't be fixed without going back and re-dubbing the whole thing. And it is said that the show's original creator, Nakao Takeuchi, wasn't happy with the changes made in that first translation.

The 90s English language run also only covered the first few seasons so if they wanted to release the entire show they would still need to create a new dub for the rest of the series.

Yes. I seem to recall the show ending abruptly during it's run on "Agro", right after Rini transformed into 'Wicked Lady'.

I much prefer the original dub, and so does my young sister.

I have the movie collection. Is the PQ for the series on blu ray about the same or is it different because the movies were sourced from film?

The movies look better, though those too appear to have DNR applied, likely because Toei have used existing masters instead of going back to the source.

The series is watchable, but the quality isn't amazing, and Madman's DVDs of Seasons 1-3 are arguably superior. As soon as I popped in the season one Blu-ray, it did not even remotely look like it was from a native film source, and I struggled to note any improvement in quality.

And if this was some cynical attempt to get us to double/triple dip on a film-sourced restoration in the future, then it's working.

Either way, I'm still super glad to have finally seen (and own) the entire series uncensored, but a part of me still yearns for what could have been.

Yeah, the movies look completely grain managed and re coloured to be more in line with modern animation. But I found I enjoyed it. As long as the series has a similar kind of revisionism and isnít a huge step down I think Iíll give them a go when thereís a decent discount.
