I don't mind the idea of putting the main cast in the final cover instead of every character in Stars, but they really should enlarge Usagi/shrink the other girls.

I think she’s scaled according to how tall she would be relevant to the other girls. What makes it difficult is probably her stupid wings that get in the way of everyone’s faces.

Marco seems to have based the designs off of the Memorial Song Box artwork:



Madman’s kept them in their intended poses, so it seems to make more proportional sense than Viz’s layout (and thereby looks better, in my opinion).

I agree with everyone else though - doesn’t make much sense to have Chibiusa on the cover for part 2.

The graphic designer for Viz's Sailor Moon release is a joke. There's absolutely nothing wrong with Marco's artwork here, but it's just poorly slapped together. They've definitely could've made the cover less busy.
The artwork has not heart or soul.While Yukidesigns for Crystal covers were wonky. They seem in comparison had more heart to it.

Honestly, I'm glad I didn't buy into these initial Blu-ray boxes. They have been riddled with inconsistencies with both the actual footage and the bonus material. The R movie doesn't match up with the other movies' packaging and Season 1's quality far differs from Season 5's and in-between. I stuck with buying DVD versions.

I'm holding out for a possible complete Blu-ray series + movies box set, that hopefully even uses the newly remastered footage in Japan and more consistent packaging designs. I can totally see Viz doing it now with no new content on the horizon other than the next chapter of Crystal. Until that happens, I'm perfectly content with the DVD sets.

I'd rather have them use the same footage as the Australian DVDs. The Japanese Blu Ray release is better, but it's still a DNR'd mess.
It'd be so cool if they did a new upscale that preserves the grain like Discotek did for Galaxy Express 999, but that'll probably never happen.

I mean, the new version is... better. But, yeah, like, what?

That's all?

Besides the "Friendship" to "Partners" change for Uranus and Neptune?

What a complete waste of paper and ink, in my honest opinion. Not sure why they went and fixed this booklet and not the one prior (which I think suffers the worse travesty of flat-out missing voice actors.). But hey, if it pleases the masses I suppose.

Honestly, I think Viz was just more concerned about being seen as "problematic" than anything else... especially after very clearly trying to promote themselves as otherwise in regards to the new dub and Haruka and Michiru's relationship. The missing voice actor credits, screwed up aspect ratio in the first DVD, bad transfer, etc just wasn't as much on their radar. They don't care as much about QC as long as they still appear "woke." Definitely nothing wrong with having a progressive attitude, as long as that's not your only priority in QC.

I'm sure the money spent on "paper and ink" was worth the years of junk mail we're probably gonna get for giving them our address.

I can't wait to get the Sailor Stars Part 2 Limited Edition Set which I pre-ordered. Getting it from RightStuf for the exclusive Gift With Purchase art cards!! It says Artwork Not Final on the bottom, so I really hope they end up changing the image they are using of Eternal Sailor Moon!! There are so many better ones to use!!! :(
