I only have a few things I don't like about the box.

The fact they're using a DVD cover for the box just seems, lazy. They should have atleast changed it or something. And a box with new art would be great. And I still can't stand the poorly drawn tiara on Sailor Moon U_U;;

Of course, I'm not getting the box so I no right to bitch =P

I thought it was a "thin-pack"? The box is huge nonetheless. Or maybe the image is just blown up. Anyway, how is the tiara poorly drawn? It looks really blended and official.

It's the case that the DVDs are in which are the thin packs, not the box. They are half the size of the normal DVD cases.

It looks ok, not a new image, which is sad, but it is still pretty cool that they finally have a boxset out.

Its kinda hard to see in that image, but the way the tiara was drawn seems very poor. It seems really flat, like it was tattoed on her forhead. It lacks dimension with the forehead.

YAAAAY ^______^ The S season is the only season I like (I prefer the manga over the anime). I'm so glad that I'll be getting $3000 this summer. But I don't really like the cover art. I don't know, I kind of wish that they used something new, but still YAAAAY ^____^.

But I have a question, will all six of the DVDs have the same cover art as the box, or will they be like the original cover art for the old releases?

Unknown at this time. Geneon has yet to show any art of the individual cases themselves. All I can tell you is that they won't have the red Signature Series bar on them, and that they won't be reversible either. Chances are we won't know until early copies of the box are sent out.

I just realized something about the art, Sailor Moon has the wrong tiara, it should be a moon. I wonder why it's the jewel 0___o weird.

Even with the messed up tiara, the artwork is still pretty nice. I'm still not planning to rebuy the S season though.

Dont' complain guys, the S boxart is way better than the SuperS box art, now that is fugly. I can't belive what a craptastic job they did on the SuperS art. I don't understand why they just didn't use all of the original art instead of making their own ugly creations. *shudders at the dvd with Minako and that nasty pic of Artemis with her*

People have a right to not like things about the art. They also have the right to discuss it.

Joey: The question is, Rachel, does he like you? ''Cuz if he doesn''t, then it''s all just a moo point.
Rachel: Huh...a...moo point?
Joey: Yeah. It''''s like a cow''s opinion. It doesn''t matter....It''s moo.

Hmmm..I suppose I should have phrased that differently.

By "dont' complain" I meant it as "It could be worse" I wasn't literally saying, "DONT' COMPLAIN"

And Tiff why do you have such a horrible attitude? I notice that you're very cold and direct in a lot of your posts. I don't understand why the majority of the people that post here suck up to you so much.

I'm not Tiff, but I think can answer this one.

Tiff isn't sugar-coating what she wants to say. She tells us what we need to do, and we follow her because she is our administrator, who's job is to keep this forum running smoothly. If she was very demure about what she did, this forum would be total chaos. The reason that this forum runs smoothly and has good discussion points and the like is because she, Dan, Bob and the Chibi Mods keep it in order. If we didn't have them or she wasn't strict and enforcing, this forum would be COMPLETELY overrun with stupid things like false rumors, stupid posts like those "bump" posts people use to get a thread to the top of a forum, and most likely lots of people getting their feelings hurt with the whole "newbies are stupid" thing that goes on in so many other forums.

As for sucking up, we don't really, we're nice because she is a VERY good person. To find this out, talk to her in a mature manner about something. Tiff has helped me in the past with various things. She isn't cold, just intolerable of rule breaking.

Me: This is coming from the kid who doesn't know what Viagra is!
Ko: It's cold medicine, right?
Our Group: NO!!!
Me: Can I just say?
Dylan: Sure, it's no weirder than what normally comes out of your mouth.
Me: (says what)
Ko: .....What's that?
Me: ......*starts crying*
Carley: STEVE! STEVE GET OVER HERE AND TELL KO WHAT VIAGRA DOES!
Steve: See, it's like this: The bridge goes up and the soldiers rush out....

Tiff: Aww, you killed someone for me. That's so sweet in a f***ed up sort of way!

Well thank you Celexia for answering for Tiff. :)

I am a member of many forums and I have never ever felt so very unwelcome. I know that mods and administrators must be firm with the posters, but never this badly. I mean, what does it cost to use a smiley after posting such a cold sounding post? I didn't mean any harm in that post, and I felt as though I did something horribley wrong.

I'm just asking that she just be a little nicer, is that alot to ask for? Apparently so.

Tiff isn't cold, but she is direct, and that's what keeps the forum in order. Go to an unmoderated board (like the kind on IMDB) then look at this, BIG DIFFERENCE. Tiff and the other admins keep things in order. I think if she wasn't dirrect, people wouldn't listen to her and the board would be in chaos.

And that's really mean and offencsive to say we suck up. I don't suck up and I'm sure that everyone else doesn't. I just act nice to everyone I know because I don't feel like being a bitch and hurting people's feelings.

Edit. -_-; fixed my grammar.

If you think Tiff's not nice, you don't know Tiff. I'm just getting to know her better, but what you need to know is this: what you see as coldness is a rare quality to find in people, justice. It takes a lot of courage to say that someone is wrong and to call a spade a spade. And what you see as sucking up is genuine respect for that courage. If you say something wrong and get called on it (I've done it many times, and I'll probably do it again), look at what it was, judge its severity, and work to correct and prevent it. You shouldn't feel "horribly" wrong for a misstep of semantics, but you do need to watch what you say, and be prepared to take the consequences of public speech.

Well, this is OT and I'm sure Tiff can speak for herself, but she's my friend and I feel the need to defend her.

Yes we are all evil little funky monekys for taking this off topic ^_^. :grabs topic steering wheel and does a U turn, only to slam it into a wall because I am a bad driver:

I have a question. After reading some reviews on the Sailor Senshi Page, it appears that the DVDs have some bad grammar. Does anyone know if this will be corrected?

I'm assuming sooner or later the companies that made the DVDs (*is too lazy to look it up*) WILL notice sooner or later, just like from the R boxsets. If there is bad grammar, I think the company should have looked it over before they released it. Do you mean bad grammar by spelling, or the subtitles are weird with the English language, ie "I is going to the bookstore" ?
