Viz Media Responds to Sailor Moon Sailor Stars Anime's Booklet Errors
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Viz Media revealed in a statement on Tuesday that a booklet bundled with the limited edition of the first Sailor Moon Sailor Stars home video release contains text errors. The company said, "The erroneous text is in the romaji provided with the song lyrics. The booklet is the only item affected and the issue does not affect the rest of the Limited Edition set or the Standard BD or DVD releases."
Viz Media also stated that it is working on a "replacement solution" for people who already purchased the set. The set shipped with 17 episodes on Tuesday. Viz Media's release marks the first time Sailor Moon Sailor Stars, which is the fifth and final season of the original Sailor Moon television anime series, is getting a home video release in North America.
