^That's a joke, right? It does say "Nehalennia" (though it oughta say "Nehelenia" since that's how Viz spelled it in their subs on Hulu).

I pointed out their use of "Nehalennia" a few pages back. It's weird that they're using a different spelling than other official sources and just leads me to believe that all of their decisions so far have been arbitrary. I mean, if it's okay for them to use "Nehalennia" instead of "Nehelenia", why not use "Fish Eye" instead of "Fish's Eye"? Clearly they're not under any kind of contractual obligation to use the same names/terms as the Kodansha manga translation....

Is this kind of contractual obligation common in the US?

I don't think it would be? But I say that because when the Viz release started, there was speculation that their use of certain terms/names (Legendary Silver Crystal, Malefic Black Crystal, Demande, etc) was due to their "having" to follow the manga translation.

“Nehalennia” might be the name of the Goddess but Nehelenia (or other variants with “nehe” at the beginning) is a closer transliteration of the katakana in her name. But I guess it’s not a big deal.
"Nehelenia" also what Viz subbed her name as on Hulu.

I don't know about you guys, but as a Kill la Kill and a Little Witch Academia, I can't wait for Stars to be dubbed and see Haruka and Nehelenia meet and interact, just like old times. Uranus and Tellu never interacted either.

Amazon has listed SuperS Part 2 for December 18th release, while RightStuf keeps it's November 13th date. It might look like SuperS Part 2 is going to be delayed a month, since the S movie is coming out October 2nd, and they want to space out the Sailor Moon releases. We'll have to see if RightStuf does change their release date or Viz making the announcement, for the official word.

I wonder what Viz will do once they release Stars. There's a good chance Crystal's Dream arc adaptation still won't be out by then, so do you think Viz will wait until it comes out before putting out new Sailor Moon stuff, or do you think they'll do something in the meantime to keep the franchise active?

I mean they could release some of the Sailor Moon Musicals or even PGSM. They could also sub or dub some of the Sailor Moon games that were released in antiquity and maybe release them on PSN or something like that.
