Ladies and Gentleman,
Viz held its Sailor Moon panel at the 2014 Anime Expo. Announced were the dub cast for the Viz Re-dub of Sailor Moon (The Classic Anime) as well as the release of a new box set, along with date.
Sailor Moon Season 1, Part 1 box set will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on November 11, 2014 and has been seen to run from $56-80 for Blu-Ray with about $30-50 for the standard DVD release. Online Retailer Right-Stuf had a pre-order promotion for a limited edition coin but that has since sold out.
The Limited Edition Blu-Ray/DVD set comes with episodes 1-23 on 3 Blu-Ray and 3 DVD plus an 88-page, full-color premium booklet, all in a nice chipboard art box that will have room for Season 1, part 2. Viz has stated that all 5 seasons will be released in these boxes.
Now what about Sailor Moon Crystal? As of now, according to Japanese Entertainment Website Natalie.Mu(Site is in Japanese), the season will be released by King Records in 13 two-episode volumes with a limited edition release of Volume 1 (Episodes 1-2) in Japan on October 15, 2014 with a wide Blu-Ray/DVD Release on November 12, 2014 (The Day after Sailor Moon Season 1, Part 1 is released in the US… Actually, the same day due to time difference). The limited edition Blu-Ray set will actually be housed in a large designer box that doubles as a music box that will play the theme for Crystal “Moon Pride” (Though the box is part of a Japanese Promotion that comes from buying the individual DVDs) and the DVDs come with special booklets, with Vol. 1 coming with a larger bag chain charm and and all volumes including smaller charms, which may be attached to the aforementioned chain (Information found on SailorMoonCollectibles.com) and it seems that the Prices are going from 7020-8100 Yen, depending on the title and can be pre-ordered on the CDJapan website (The rest of the titles can be found here as well). The prices for the normal Blu-Ray are going for 4860 Yen and the Regular DVD volumes are priced at 3780 Yen and all of these can be found on the CDJapan website as well.
There is currently no word of a US set release for Sailor Moon Crystal as of yet but information on them will be posted for both Sailor Moon Classic and Sailor Moon Crystal as we get more details.
