Viz will release the franchise digitally with English subtitles starting May 19, followed by the new English dub starting in late 2014. The first four episodes will stream with English subtitles on Viz Media’s NeonAlley.com service and the Hulu service on Monday, and two more episodes will then debut every Monday (via ANN). According to Viz, being available for free is “important to us, because this is such a big title, to have a free option available. Sailor Moon has never been free, legal, and official online here.”
True that! Streaming the episodes online ahead of the home video release is a smart move on Viz’s part as it will generate interest in both the original and new series and hopefully drive sales of the blu-rays and DVDs. No need for fansubbed bootlegs anymore, thank god.
