'Sailor Moon' has been remastered in advance of a brand new series in 2014.
The cult anime series is currently being shown in the US, but DVD editions will be out in the next few months.
Internet TV channel Hulu is airing a remaster of cult Japanese anime series Sailor Moon in the United States, beginning earlier today.
Hulu and VIZ Media’s Neon Alley hold the rights to stream a polished up and uncut version of Sailor Moon online, with four episodes made immediately available and then two more set for each Monday thereafter.
The 46-episode original was a hit following its initial Japan broadcast in 1992 and 1993, adapted as it was from a collectible comic series, and featuring a cast of magic-wielding girls who used their powers to defeat the evil Dark Kingdom.
First aired in the US in the mid 1990s, the export was subject to alteration in terms of both content and character roles in order to avoid controversy or cultural insensitivity, but the remaster promises an uncut version faithful to the original, with a Japanese voice cast supplemented by English subtitles and a voice dub coming later in the year.
Fifth series Sailor Stars is to broadcast for the first time to North American audiences. Blu-ray and DVD editions are to follow this fall, with distributor VIZ Media leading up to the introduction of brand new series Sailor Moon Crystal. — AFP Relaxnews
