As I stated in my previous post, I completely re-did Sailor Stars, and I am in the process of re-doing SuperS as well, then I’ll get to S and finish the missing volumes of R and mission complete!
The main difference between these new encodes is that I am now using a new VCR since my old VCR oversharpened the footage and added annoying ringing around the edges. Unfortunately though, the Sailor Stars Laserdiscs, which VKLL used as the raw source, were the absolute worst from the series. It had tons and tons of blended frames, which you’ll see in these encodes. And unfortunately for me, I didn’t realize these frames were so blended that when I tried restoring it to the original 23.976 frames per second, it left some panning scenes really choppy. I don’t think I’ll encode them at 29.970 fps and release a 3rd version of these encodes since that’s a lot of work haha… maybe one day when I’m really bored
Anyway, enjoy these for now! Keep them for memories hehe
Hello everybody! It’s a wonderful Monday because today I give you the complete classic season of Sailor Moon! It’s true that I have been withholding these episodes from you 😉 But I finally got some free time, and I’ve updated the episode downloads page with all the direct download links for every single episode from Sailor Moon volumes 1-12 including extras 🙂
I’ve also put everything together in a torrent which you may use to download the episodes. I suggest you download using the direct download links if you have time, and once you have everything sorted on your computer, please help me seed the torrent!
A few notes about this release: the filter chain differs than the ones I used for the last couple of volumes of Sailor Moon R, as well as Sailor Moon S through Sailor Stars. This new filter chain helps stabilize the video footage, as well as preserves original details of the video footage. I also got a new VHS player because my old player was sharpening and boosting the contrast of my tapes, sometimes completely washing out the bright scenes, as well as producing halos around the edges. I will continue using this method for Sailor Moon R, and I may re-release S through Stars as well as release some dub tapes 😀
I’m going to poop out as many of these suckers as I can before the new anime arrives/Sailor Moon is licensed in North America again/TOEI starts hounding us down. Look forward to it!
