The latest set features the second-half of Season 2 of the anime series and will be released as a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack and also as a Standard DVD edition. Fans can expand their Sailor Moon home media collections with 21 uncut episodes with many never-before-seen extras. Uncut English dubbed as well as Japanese subtitled dialogue options are available on both formats. Sailor Moon R is rated “TV-PG.”

The Sailor Moon R Set 2 Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack and Standard DVD Set each contain Episodes 69-89 along with special premium packaging and notable bonus features. The Sailor Moon R Set 2 Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack will carry an MSRP of $69.99 U.S. / $81.99 CAN, and the Standard Edition DVD will carry an MSRP of $44.82 U.S. / $51.99 CAN.

The Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack contains a deluxe, six disc collection (three DVDs and three Blu-rays), packaged with a reflective holofoil slipcover with specialty printing. The Combo Pack also offers bonus Blu-ray content including a “Sailor Moon Anniversary Special,” “Welcome Chibi-Usa!,” and a segment taped during Sailor Moon Day at Otakon 2015, a behind the scenes look at the English dub recording sessions, and a video art gallery and official series trailers. Blu-ray episodes are presented in 1080p video preserving the original 4:3 aspect ratio.

The Sailor Moon R Set 2 Standard DVD Set features three discs with illustrated variant O-card packaging and embossed holofoil printing. Episodes will be presented in 480p standard video format.

In the second-half of Season 2, after unexpected guest Chibi-Usa falls from the sky and tries to claim the Silver Crystal as her own, Usagi quickly learns this cheeky little pink-haired girl is the least of her problems. The Black Moon Clan, in their unending quest to destroy Crystal Tokyo and change the future, have come back in time to corrupt present day Tokyo. Together the Guardians fight the Black Moon’s dark forces, but struggle to understand the truth behind their sinister plan. Is there anyone the Sailor Guardians can turn to for answers? That pink-haired girl may hold the key to Sailor Moon’s victory after all.

The Sailor Moon anime series depicts the adventures of Usagi Tsukino, a cheerful 14-year-old schoolgirl who often finds herself in unwanted trouble. One day, she saves a talking cat named Luna from some mean kids, and her life is changed forever. Luna gives Usagi a magic brooch that transforms her into Sailor Moon, guardian of love and justice. Now Usagi must work with Luna to find the other Sailor Guardians and the Moon Princess, whose Legendary Silver Crystal is Earth’s only hope against the dark forces of the evil Queen Beryl.

The Sailor Moon anime series is inspired by the manga series created by Naoko Takeuchi. In the series, Usagi Tsukino is a clumsy but kindhearted teenage girl who transforms into the powerful guardian of love and justice, Sailor Moon. Meeting allies along the way who share similar fates, Usagi and her team of planetary Sailor Guardians fight to protect the universe from forces of evil and total annihilation.
