I love that that tweet uses the original dub theme song. DiC's everlasting impact!

Still :eeklez: at that terrible cover.

I just got my movie in the mail today whoever did the remaster for viz this time did a really great job the colors are really good and sharp I finished the make up sailor guardians special I think for the attacks and for the transformations phrases used in the special are just recycled from that episode they originally came from however. The gallery artwork shows the girls in their civilian form only no guardian form or attacks and they show the flower monsters they fight on earth and the asteroid also show the flower that is controlling fire. The menu shows the movie version of sailor moons transformation theme then the music like theres a big battle approaching the moving vids show the guardians transforming. There is no insert with the movie it is just the movie and Bluray with a slip cover.

(Blu-ray menu's the same as the other 90s sets)



A sad reminder that unless you're in Australia or import DVDs from there, this is the only way to own the Japanese cover in an English release. It also means we're screwed if Viz uses something else for the S & SuperS movie covers.

Notes:

-No closed captions on either disc.
-None of the songs are translated in either sub track.
-Blu-ray subs are locked like with season 1 part 1 and both Crystal sets.
-No chapter stops for Make Up! Sailor Guardians except at the end (if that matters).
-Both special & movie credits are left in Japanese (as expected after what happened with Crystal).
-The theatrical intro extra with Stephanie Sheh, Robbie Daymond & Ben Diskin is 10 minutes long.
-The BD-only Los Angeles premiere extra is the post-premiere Q&A with the dub cast & director and is 34 minutes long with highlights of before the premiere at the end.
-The BD-only gallery extra has the original cels from the film so no Marco Albiero designs this time.

I still can't with the cover art. I just can't get over it. Even as menu images they look terrible.

You suck Viz.

There are no translated credits at all? Not a separate credits scroll or anything?

Are they the same as the images used in the Pioneer gallery?

While I'm happy they included the Make Up! special, I'm seriously bummed over the lack of isolated audio track, and trailers from the Japanese release.

Nope, it's the same as the other sets but because there's no booklet included with it, there's nothing here.

I have never owned the Pioneer DVDs but here are some pics.







There are 23 images in all, do these look familiar?

There's also no creditless OP which IIRC, was an extra on a bonus DVD with the R2 movie box.

Nice! Those are actually from the Japanese DVD release. The Pioneer release only had cels from the film. I can screencap them later tonight.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's on the R2 movie box, but not on the single DVD release. I could be wrong. The Pioneer release didn't have it either.

EDIT: According to this page, the extras on the original R2 movie box are...

- Dreaming Moon
- Theatrical Trailers
- Creditless Opening/Endings
- Film Digest
- Documentation (???)

Physical extras include stickers, and reissues of the original movie programs. I believe these are only included on the box release, and not the single reissues. The isolated audio track is included on both releases.

Also, the extras for the Pioneer release include...

- Edited VHS Opening
- "Power of Love" Clip (the climax scene from the edited English dub)
- Character Profiles
- Art Gallery
- Pioneer Catalogue

The edited opening, profiles, art gallery, and catalogue are present on each movie release. Each gallery has cel art from the respectable film. The character profiles vary slightly for each film. The S movie also includes the story of Princess Kaguya, as well as the original ending credits. I'll have to double check, but I'm pretty sure the SS movie doesn't have any specific extras.

The character profiles use both the Japanese and English names, except for the Outers, since the films were dubbed before the S dub premiered.

Whoa, this got on DVD? I thought it was a LaserDisc exclusive...

Behind the Scenes feature? :?

The isolated audio track is included on both releases.
Starting to wonder what happened with this track. Sure we can blame Viz for being cheap here (or can we?) but it looks like Italy & France didn't get it either. Does it really have the same clearance issues as the LD extras?

Yeah, I'm surprised about that. Part of me wonders if it's a mistake on the website. The box's obi doesn't mention it.

No clue.

Anybody own the boxset and can confirm?

I mean, Viz received an isolated track since... they were able to make their own dub. Maybe Toei rejected it as an extra, or Viz didn't think to include it.

I'm shocked Viz didn't even try to do some sort of bonus present, or reversible cover or anything special for this release. Makes me worried about the other features.

I wonder why there is no reversable cover like the other sets. And we are sure this is a true HD remastered for the movie and the make up special?

The makeup special looks like an upconversion. The movie is a lot crisper and has a lot of detail, you can even see parts where the animators colored outside the line, and also little dots in the linework thay didn't get filled.

Also, based on how shoddy this movie packaging is, I'm 90% sure they're going to release a box set for all the movies.
