    Any guess about the price range of the Artbooks? I mean, now they are costing +- 250$. If the price of the reprint ones will be more than that, then It’s better to get the old ones.

    Any news if they’ll be releasing any S.H. figuarts(Sailor Moon Crystal Season 3) of the inner senshis any time soon?

    SH Figuarts Sailor moon Crystal S3 is superb.

    it amazes me how popular this series is. I’m 22 and Sailor Moon was playing on cartoon network when I was like 5 years old. I loved it then as much as I love it now. The creator of SM must be amazed by how continuously throughout the years has stayed so popular.

      She is totally shocked. lol. In interviews she talks about how much she hated the process of making the manga but how amazed she is that it’s still making her money.

    Is 19800 yen per a blueray volume standart price for these things, or they went extra expensive for Sailor Moon?
    Cos series+movies will be 13 volumes, that’ll be $2.5K for the entire series :O
    And will the content be what they’re currently airing on tv? Cos that quality is problematic, there are lots of completely broken shots all over the place, and so far there wasn’t a single time that Usagi’s transformation wasn’t affected by that… Are they actually going to sell that as is?

    I have been waiting for a new Art book with the original illustrations for such a long time!! I’m really happy they will finally release it!
    And I’m looking forward for Sailor Moon Crystal season 4!!!

      Yes! I’ve been desperate for the same thing for years. I’m lucky in that I managed to pick up the Artbooks 1-4 sixteen years ago for a decent price, but I paid a fortune for the Materials Collection. These are five of my most prized possessions. I’ve never managed to get my hands on the Artbooks 5.
      If they could just reprint them all, I’d buy them all over again new!

    So….the Q-Pot charm just slapped a sailor moon coin on a generic sweet. Maquillage thinks that you can just slap crescent moons and stars on something and people will respect it as a Sailor Moon item. The Hello Kitty collab might be cute, if it isn’t just Sanrio characters cosplaying.

    I’m reading so many different translations about the book! Is it a reprint of the manga, a reprint of all the artbooks, or a new artbook?

    Is there any way to let them know how badly we want ALL the old artbooks to be re-released? They would sell like crazy!

    How are the blurays different from the ones that viz has been releasing on bluray? Viz still used the original Japanese with subs.

      they are Japanese releases in Japan only.
