Viz grabs Sailor Moon!


Get hype!

I was tempted just to type the internet equivalent of a long squeal and end it right there, but that wouldn't be professional, so have some sweet details about Viz's latest acquisition.

Sailor Moon arrives on May 19th. It'll be streaming on Hulu, with disc and digital releases (including its first-ever Blu-ray outing) to follow. All two hundred original episodes, uncut and re-translated, with an all-new dub.

All kinds of people's inner eight-year-olds must be jumping for joy right about now, and frankly I'm surprised it took Viz this long to snatch it up.

Oh, and they just announced that they'll also be licensing Sailor Moon Crystal, the 26-episode series dated for July. Exactly what it'll turn out to be is still a little unclear to me, but chances are it'll look pretty good and get everyone hot and bothered, because, dammit, it's Sailor Moon.
