The complete first season in English and Japanese! If you've only seen the American television release, you haven't seen the whole story. Includes lost and cut episodes never aired in the USA.
Serena (Usagi) Tsukino learns from a talking cat that she is actually Sailor Moon, warrior of justice. Her mission, find the other Sailor Scouts (Senshi), find the Moon Princess and save planet Earth from the evil Queen Barryl and her warriors from the Negaverse. A fantastic series about a clumsy middle school girl trying to save the planet, with a love story from another lifetime, a LOT of action, some comedy and even a little drama.
Sailor Moon: The way it was meant to be seen

"Welcome to what will certainly be a new dimension of the Sailor Moon series. For the American fans that have been exposed to the youth-friendly DiC cuts, ADV has taken the right step by introducing the first season the way it was meant to be seen. All episodes are uncut, taken off of the original Japanese masters, and fitted with English subtitles.Many details will stand out between the American release and the unedited, original version. Perhaps this stands out the most in the final two episodes. Due to its graphic content, the final two episodes of the first season were condensed to a single episode for the American release. Here, however, you will be able to see how the Sailor Scouts' battle with Queen Beryl really ended, by seeing the final two episodes in their entirety.Parents should be warned, however, that with the added scenes comes more suggestive dialogue and more violence, therefore this DVD box set is not recommended for young kids. (ADV's rating is Age 15+)If I am not mistaken, ADV will also be coming out with the second season of Sailor Moon, uncut. If ADV proceeds with this release, it will be to delight of many Sailor Moon fans. That release will only leave us with the final season, Sailor Stars. There is much discussion about the more intense content in Stars, so while the release of Sailor Moon's final season in the American market is still up in the air (and may be for a long time), be sure to get your hands on the first season of Sailor Moon, uncut, which is worth the high price and is a must for anyone's Sailor Moon collection."
Everyone complains too much...

"C'mon guys. Stop complaining. The sound is bad because it *IS* Mono, and it's from 92, and on top of that Toei had faulty master tapes. I personally didn't mind the sound at all. Trust me, after 15 hours straight, you won't care anymore. Besides, it's really only the opening and endings that are muffled.
Also, anyone hoping for extras is just silly. Yes, it would have been nice to see the openings and endings without the credits, but we really don't have a right to complain or expect that.
Anyway. The show is WONDERFUL. I was a dubbie once - I got hooked in 95 on the chopped up DiC dub of it, and I've been a rabid fan ever since. I'm really happy being able to see this. It's so much better than what was shown here (the US), it's indescribable. I see Sailor Moon in a very different (though better) light now.
It's a must have for any Sailor Moon fan with $50 to spare (I bought mine new for $49 at another website). :)"
The real Sailor Moon!

"The plot synopsis about this set was incorrect. It should have said: Ditsy cry-baby Usagi and her friends, Ami, Rei, Makoto and Minako use special powers to transform into Sailor Soldiers. They fight for love and justice against the evil minions of the Dark Kingdom. They heed the advice of the talking cats, Luna and Artemis...
The point is, if you want the dumbed down version of this series, you aren't buying the right DVDs. These are only in Japanese, so Tracey Moore and Terri Hawkes shouldn't be credited.
Anyway, the real Sailor Moon is so much better than the American dubbed version, as fans will find as they watch these DVDs.
I won't give away too much, but the end is much more intense. The dubbers chopped up tbe last three episodes and made them into two. And also, you can sigh with relief that there is no 'Sailor Moon says' at the end of any of these episodes!"
