It’s a gorgeous week and the beginnings of spring can be felt all over San Francisco. What better way to welcome the season than with another beautiful something; Sailor Moon Crystal!

The much anticipated second set of the direct to the manga retelling of this beloved tale is out now and let me tell you, this set is dazzling. To be honest, I let out a bit of a fangirl squee when the final sample crossed my desk! The limited edition packaging is a pearlescent white chipboard box with gold foil accents and is based on the stunning thirteenth volume of the original Japanese Blu-ray. Let’s take a closer look in this unboxing video, shall we?

The beauty is more than skin deep here, though! This release features not only the original Japanese language track (with English subtitles) but an all-new English dub and fabulous extras. All the Black Moon baddies and Sailor Guardians you know and love from Sailor Moon R are back for this thrilling take on the arc. Matt Mercer plays Prince Dimande and it’s so… so… CHILLING! Take a listen:

So, you have beautiful packaging, voices to die for, what else could you want? Oh yeah, it wouldn’t be a Sailor Moon release without EPIC TREATS! We got you, Moon fam. When you get your copy of Sailor Moon Crystal Set 2 from the great folks at Right Stuf, you will get a Crystal Star sun catcher while supplies last! Just like the sun catcher from set 1, it features solid acrylic construction and a golden elastic you can use as an ornament or attached to the included suction cup for your window:

Even with the sunny days lately, there’s nothing quite like a magical brooch to brighten up any window! (Disclaimer: actual brooch requires talking cat and personal destiny to activate)

If you don’t have a Blu-ray player or can’t find an LE set of your own, the set is also available on standard edition combo pack and DVD. Remember, you can only get the free sun catcher at Right Stuf, though.

That’s Sailor Moon Crystal Set 2, the Black Moon Arc, out now wherever fine anime DVD and Blu-ray discs are sold. Enjoy it!
