Still no Sailor Moon? I wonder what's gone wrong with that box set. I hope they haven't cancelled it.

It's good to see Adachi and Shimamura on there. I might get that instead of the Funimation release so I'll have a zone B copy.

As someone who briefly ordered the release, I got this message when it was cancelled shortly after the removal of the product page

"Unfortunately, due to licensing issues, the release of SAILOR MOON COMPLETE SERIES (SEASONS 1-5) (BLU-RAY) (LIMITED EDITION) has been delayed indefinitely."

Remains to be seen what this means but I wouldn't be too hopeful.

Yeah, "delayed indefinitely" is usually corporate speak for cancelled. That's disappointing. I notice that some of the individual season sets are out of print, so maybe the licences were up for renewal and the licensor bumped the price up higher than Madman wanted to pay.

Surprised to see LBX Girls there and at the full price of the others... I felt like I was one of the few that watched that low budget show, can't imagine anyone wanting to buy the BD especially at full price of other shows.

Seems to be a usual single cour 24 minute episodes series so the price doesn't sound too farfetched. Also good to note that a series' budget isn't so easily judged from the visual quality. Even ufotable is known to have rather average budgets despite their high quality.
