This morning, June 16th, episodes 11 and 12 of Sailor Moon became available to view streaming for free, with ads, on Hulu. These episodes are subbed by Viz and will be released at a rate of two episodes per week. Dubbed episodes as well as a DVD and Blu-Ray release will be coming later this summer.
In episode 11, Usagi vs. Rei: Nightmare in Dream Land, we get our first look at Rei and Usagi’s unique relationship. They turn out to be the best of friends but they fight through the best and worst of times. Usagi, Rei and Ami go to Dream Land to investigate a Dark Kingdom plot! While there they see Mamoru on a child’s train, hang out with some robot animals, assault a small child and fight the Dream Princess who’s actually a creepy looking doll monster.
In episode 12, I Want a Boyfriend: The Luxury Cruise Ship Is a Trap, Rei wins a contest for a trip on a cruise ship and brings Ami, much to Usagi’s disappointment. Usagi abuses of her disguise pen to turn into a photographer to sneak aboard and gets a crush on the ship’s captain who’s actually Jadeite!
Is it just me or does it seem like there were a lot of subtitle errors with this week’s episodes? Like I noticed especially in episode 12, the subtitles would be one sentence ahead or they would repeat themselves a lot. I hope someone will bring this to the attention of Viz and that this problem will be fixed.
Just wanted to say I really appreciate these weekly episode updates. I’m in Canada, so I can’t access either Hulu or Neon Alley without illegal add-ons or proxies (which I don’t really want to use ATM). Luckily I went through the series on my own within the last year or two, so the episodes are still fresh enough in my head, but I do still want to keep up with the progress of the new releases all the same. At least with these summaries, I can know what point everyone else is at and be able to follow the reactions of my American friends who are watching the show week to week. So thanks!
