On June 9th Hulu has started streaming episodes 9 and 10 of the original Sailor Moon anime in Japanese with English subtitles. These episodes will be released at a rate of 2 per week every Monday by Viz. There are plans for a new dub and DVD/Blu-Ray release coming later this year.
Episode 9, Usagi’s Disaster: Beware of the Clock of Confusion, has the Dark Kingdom invading a clock store which causes everyone to rush! Ami finally gets her computer and uses it to investigate as the enemy manipulates time! Sailor Moon is turned into a baby and then an old lady in the course of the fight. This episode’s dub name was “Time Bomb” which meant that it was not always replayed in sindication, such as on Cartoon Network, so be sure to check it out if you haven’t already.
Episode 10, The Cursed Bus: Enter Mars, the Guardian of Fire, introduces us to Rei Hino, a priestess from the Hikawa Shrine and the greatest character in the series! Busses have been dissapearing near the Shrine prompting Usagi to come in and investigate. Rei is revealed to have special powers and is ultimately shown to be the third Sailor Guardian, Sailor Mars!
