Viz Licenses Classic “Sailor Moon” Anime & “Sailor Moon Crystal”

Sailor Moon fans have had a lot to be excited about recently. The upcoming reimagining of Naoko Takeuchi’s manga, Sailor Moon Crystal, is set to start airing this July. Now, Viz Media has licensed the original anime – that’s 200 episodes, three feature films and tie-in specials – to stream digitally, with DVD/Blu-Ray releases set for later this year. Not only that, the series will be uncut: Japanese names and storylines will remain intact, with the original 4:3 aspect ratio preserved. An all-new English dub is in the works as well.

The first four episodes have already been posted on Neon Alley and Hulu. Two more episodes will be released every Monday. The series will be released in half-season DVD/Blu-Ray sets starting the fall. Specific dates have yet to be released.
