Sailor Moon S Brazilian DVD Promo Cards

Sailor Moon S Brazilian DVD Promo CardsRecently while browsing the Sailor Moon Forum, I discovered that I own an extremely rare set of Sailor Moon S cards. Here is the story behind these cards:

Sailor Moon Brazilian DVD Promo Cards

In January 2012, a nice young lady made a post in SeraSell, to announce that she was selling sets of Sailor Moon S Brazilian DVD promo cards. She had between ten to twenty sets of these cards (10 cards per set for $30 USD each), and sold out almost immediately because they are GORGEOUS. These cards were only given to those who pre-ordered the Brazilian DVDs for Sailor Moon S. Because the nice young lady helped organize the release party for the DVDs in Brazil, the company gave her those cards as a friendly ‘thank you.’

Once the cards were sold and shipped out, photographs of them were quickly uploaded to the internet. Unfortunately, these cards are extremely rare and have become hard to find. Price value for the cards quickly hiked and bootleg versions have also found their way onto Ebay. From what I’ve seen, the only sighting of these cards are in the hands of those who purchased them on SeraSell. So if you spot any legit copy of these cards, you should buy them. They’re a trophy find for Sailor Moon collectors.

I scanned in Volume 2 of Kodansha’s Sailor Moon R TV Magazine Deluxe book. This book covers the second half of the Sailor Moon R season, involving the Black Moon Clan. It introduces the character of Sailor Pluto, Demande, Esmeraude, Saphir, and the Ayakashi Sisters. It also previews the Sailor Moon R movie storyline and has information regarding Fiore’s character. As usual, there are lots of big lovely pictures and iconic images from the Sailor Moon series in the book.

Kodansha's Sailor Moon S TV Magazine DeluxeA few years ago, I scanned in a few pages from the Kodansha’s Sailor Moon S TV Magazine Deluxe book. I finally went ahead and scanned in the entire book, to add to the Gallery’s Kodansha TV Magazine Deluxe Book collection.

The book explores the beginning of the third season, Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon S. It begins with the introduction of Sailor Uranus (Tenoh Haruka) and Sailor Neptune (Kaioh Michiru), and their quest for the Talismans. Death Busters and Witches 5 are brought into this arc as well. Only the first half of the third season is covered in this book. The periodical concludes with the ending of season two, Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon R.

I also scanned in an awesome poster of Tenoh Haruka by the company, Banpresto. The poster is actually vinyl, a little bit bigger than the size of a pencil board, and can be framed (It came with plastic frames). It was part of a set of small vinyl posters that Banpresto released in 1994, called "Character Sheets." Though any of the images in this Banpresto poster set is hard to find, this particular Tenoh Haruka one is super rare, which is why I’m so happy to be able to show it off. Enjoy the scans!

Sailor Stars TV Magazine Deluxe

Oh boy. Its been a while since I’ve microwaved expensive Sailor Moon artbooks and tore them apart for scans. But here is one: The Sailor Stars TV Magazine Deluxe book published by Kodansha in December 1996. This book includes some pretty awesome summary of the Sailor Stars series, the conclusion of Sailor Moon SuperS series, and some points on the SuperS movie. There are character profiles for the Three Lights and the Sailor Starlights, which means there are cool images of Seiya (Starfighter), Yaten (Starhealer) and Taiki Kou (Starmaker).

The Sailor Stars TV Magazine Deluxe book is the rarest one out of all the seasons published by Kodansha. These days, this book can easily fetch more than $100 on Ebay. So if you have a copy, please treasure your’s. If not, then enjoy the scans!

Sailor Moon Infinity Artbook

Infinity Artbook

Yep, it happened: A Volume Infinity artbook was torn apart for scans. I know that bit of information probably broke someone’s heart, considering that Volume Infinity generally costs (at the very least) a few hundred dollars on Ebay. But in our defense, our copy of Volume Infinity came to us damaged and the pages were falling out. So what better way to do it, than to scan it in and preserve the files…?
