Fans waiting for Viz’s next Sailor Moon TV series release will need to be a little more patient. The release had originally been scheduled for April 10th, as we mentioned back in November, however some readers have noticed that pre-orders were being delayed until April 24th. Indeed the listings on Amazon and Right Stuf’s web sites now show an April 24th release date. After some concern in our comments section reader Drew reached out to Viz for clarification and they confirmed that the new release date for Sailor Moon SuperS Part 1 is in fact April 24th. This is only a two week delay but I know some fans have been waiting quite some time for this one!
I’m not aware of any reason given for the delay, though such things are not uncommon. Since there haven’t been any dubbed episodes released to stream yet this will be the first chance we get to hear Viz’s new Sailor Moon SuperS dub. It will also be the first time the Sailor Moon SuperS Special will be available in North America. This shows, amongst other things, what Haruka and Michiru were up to during the Sailor Moon SuperS season. Are you planning on picking up this set? You can pre-order it from Amazon using the link below.
That aqua color is so refreshing after the pink and yellows we’ve had so far!
Pretty in pink, yep!
BLAST, the other part of my message got cut off, sorry! “Pretty in pink, yep! But VARIETY is appreciated!”
At this rate, Sailor Stars will be bluish violet.
it makes you wonder what stars will be colored and I fully agree the pastel colors of the past 3 seasons is kinda strange on my book shelf so this will be very nice to tone the colors down a bit
Maybe green, orange or an even paler shade of blue, maybe violet or white. Season 3 really threw me off since I assumed it would be pink too, then they did yellow.
I wish season 2 had been a different color as well if they were going to change like that.
We should take bets, but ima say blue. They seem to be ROY.G.BIV’ing them…
The 10th or the 24th, it’ll still take my library an age or two to go over my request for them to purchase it, approve it, and then for the damn thing to come in. So no matter what, it’s going to be a long wait for me.
2 weeks longer o well, I preordered it a while back so I can wait a few extra days to hear rita yell at the amazon trio lol, hope there isn’t an issue with the product like way back on season 2 part 2 where an episode was totally messed up in the printing, just speculation on my part as to why the delay but who knows, last I seen tho the dvd by itself was still coming on the 10th per amazons site but in this day and age why would you just get the dvds when there is a blu ray copy out there lol
Does anyone know it it will include all three epsiode specials?
Yes. It will be on special features on disc 3.
Why is everything about this frsnchize so disorganized, no matter the country? The first two seasons were released on Blu ray in japan and then not a damn word about the rest. Crystal will take a decade to be finished with all the delays. Viz are releasing the old show with the speed of a turtule, the Perfect Edition of the manga is delayed infinitely. Viz dubbed the R movie ages sgo and dont mention releasing the rest. Everything is so slow and random, evem the board games were delayed to the point they use an artwork no one identifies with Crystal anymore….
Always has been, probably always will be. It’s very frustrating, but since I came into the fandom in the late 90’s the waiting game and disorganization the series has has been a nightmare.
It usually always comes back to Toei. They really don’t know what to do with it.
They took forever to let Dic license any more of it, then they never let us have Stars…I can only imagine the headache it is for any country outside of Japan trying to deal with them.
They are notorious for ripping companies off and they don’t give a care about us fans at all, obviously.
I agree, but it is not just anime related – figurines are being delayed, manga new release is being delayed, Naoko was advartized to release a new artbook in 2014.., and we never heard from it ever again. I’m from a country that Sailor Moon has never been released or broadcast, but I’ve been a fan since I was like 6 in 1997, watching it in German, without understanding a thing. Eer since internet became a thing I’ve been searching stuff about it and it has always been a mess.
You have my sympathy, Justme. That’s harsh.
It’s just what Garet and Saintfighteraqua say – it’s like Kodansha and Toei both don’t respect one of their most valuable assets. All Toei are for is Pretty Shitty Cure to sell toys, while Sailor Moon brings hell a lot of money from licensing. Crystal is being released in USA, Australia, Germany, France, Italy, Portugal and this year Latin America will also broadcast it. God knows how much money this licensing bring to their pockets. Now with these Crystal movies if done right they might actually get screenings abroad. Pretty Cure was never interetional success as no more tha a season or two being dubbed in a couple of countries and their movies never made it outside Japan. Sailor Moon is world-wide successful franchise that deserve respect at least as much as Card Captor Sakura, which blew my mind with its stunningly animated Clear Card season that was delivered *surprise, surprise* on damn time.
Don’t know about that other stuff but I do know no more Crystal can be dubbed until it’s released in Japan. So, that’s Toei’s fault not Viz’s fault. They can’t dub what hasn’t been created yet.
I’m not talking about Crystal dub. I’m just saying that TOEI have no respect to their beast when it comes to licensing.
Oh, com on!
Sorry. But this delay has got to stop.
No kidding I was all excited thinking I’d get it within one more week since I pre ordered from Right Stuf and now I have to wait over 20 more days! I would of understood if they had a good reason for the delay. But they don’t tell us a thing!
Just got a message from Viz. They pushed the date back again. Now it’s the 28th of April.
wtf, haven’t gotten a change in date yet from amazon but who knows with the rate this is going, last I checked the dvd only set is still slated for the 10th and at this time the combo pack and collectors set is still for the 24th of april really hope this is a bad dream
Ya, but I got the message straight from Viz staff stating the release is the 28th, not the 24th.
that seems very strange, why would they release a movie on a Saturday when generally a rule of thumb is movies and shows get released on a Tuesday? did you order straight through viz media? I checked today and amazon still has a street date of that Tuesday and I checked even with other stores like target and best buy and they both still show a Tuesday release and not a Saturday, honestly something smells fishy there
I hope they don’t keep postponing Super S to May or any further future dates.
I hope they don’t postpone it to May. I’m curious to see what new threat our heroes face in Super S.
Trailer’s available now: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6LmfzEF8XiU
omg they did some stellar casting by having zirconia voiced by Barbara (Rita Repulsa) listening to her voice is music to my ears, cant wait to get this set and im hoping that they will use her on the queen once she makes her appearance later on in this arc
On the other hand Pegasus’ original dub voice actor was much better than this guy.
What is it with these people at Viz? Are they stoned or something? First it was the 10th, than it was the 28th and now it is on the 24th. Make up your fucking minds already Viz!
