Mid-February Update!

It’s not the end of February yet, but it’s been a while since I’ve updated this site, so I figured I’d let y’all in on what we’re up to!

For those of you who follow us on Twitter and Facebook, you’ll know that we have updated our main banner! Tell us what you think by participating in our poll on the right sidebar. We’ve also released the entire Sailor Moon S* season for your enjoyment and are currently working on Sailor Moon SuperS, which I think will be complete by the end of the month (we’re about halfway done with the season already) ! Then we will start working on Sailor Stars 😀

As I mentioned in the November 2012 roundup, Studio Chikashitsu and VKLL did not subtitle Sailor Moon R episodes 59-72. Chikashitsu had intentions of completing them, but they disbanded after releasing volume 3, and VKLL had no intentions of subtitling those episodes because they had already been dubbed and put up for distribution by then.  The only groups (that I’m aware of) who subtitled these episodes are Random Masters and Anime Daisuki (I have low quality versions of their releases, if anyone’s interested in them, please comment this post).

Long story short, I have taken it upon myself to personally subtitle these episodes and put them on tape. I’ve currently completed volumes 4 and 6, and am now working on volume 5. They will be up for distribution on fansubs.ca if anyone wants to order the tapes. This is one Studio Chikashitsu’s original distros, with ALL of the Sailor Moon tapes from Studio Chikashitsu and VKLL re-opened for distribution since North America’s license on the series has lapsed.

I think that’s all I have to say about updates for now 🙂 Don’t forget to donate to help keep us going (even if it’s just a few dollars) We’d really appreciate it 😀 And follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook to receive more frequent updates!

*Volumes 5-10 of Sailor Moon S will be replaced once 1st gen SVHS tapes are obtained. The current releases are from 2nd generation VHS tapes and contain some tracking errors and quality issues.

Donations NEEDED! S-VHS Player with TBC Required

Hi everyone,

I would just like to take the time now to emphasize how important donations are right now. I have recently received tapes for Sailor Moon R volume 7 through Sailor Moon SuperS volume 10 (Specials included)! That’s the exciting good news 🙂

The bad news is, there is time base error in some of these tapes. What this basically means is, some of the videos have wave-like horizontal jitters like this:

I know, gross. The only way to fix this is if I use a VCR with a time base corrector. However, these are pretty expensive and I just don’t have the money to afford one 😦 It costs about $200 and I really want to get high quality releases out to you, so any little donation would be really appreciated–even if it’s just $10! If every one of you who visits this site donated about $5 or $10 each, that would be enough for a new VCR 😀 And enough money for me to give high quality VHS rips of Sailor Moon fansubs to you guys like this:
