    Another lovely thing about the Sailor Moon set is it will feature closed captions as well as English subtitles.

    Wait a minute,are you talking about Song/Sign subs like with Ranma or CC subs that can be turned on via TV or online player?
    there will be standard subtitles, signs & songs AND a separate closed captions track for the dub.

      Viz is slowly but surely redeeming themselves for me...Now if only the other companies would do the same. Finally, closed caption for the hearing impaired!

        Neat, wouldn't mind if more anime releases had those 3 options, I think FUNi stated somewhere that they don't because it costs more to do those(?)

          It really doesn't make much sense though...because adding them onto the DVD doesn't cost that much, but making them does. However, for almost all their shows, a closed caption track is made for their english dubbed itunes catalog, like this:

          Makes me kinda mad that they have them right there and don't put them on the DVDs/BDs themselves.

                      Interview with VIZ's Aker and Hamric, Part 2

                      Anything else going on with VIZ that we haven’t talked about?

                      [..]

                      Hamric: On the anime side, just a small little thing called Sailor Moon. Couldn't be happier. For two weeks we had the number one show on Hulu, not just in our category, but the #1 show was Sailor Moon. It launched the week of Anime Expo at Fourth of July.

                      Aker: That is also gratifying because that is one that we knew would do well, but not that well. Then it just exploded.

                      Hamric: The pre-orders for the DVD/Blu-ray for this fall are already the largest VIZ has ever seen in its history. Mass is taking a tremendous position on this.

                      Aker: Which is amazing because with mass merchants (along with other retailers), there’s a caution around girls properties. Maybe the reason for Sailor Moon's popularity is you can watch it at age 8 or age 38. There’s the nostalgia buyers.

                        The hype is real it seems. Glad to see it's breaking expectations. Hopefully it'll allow Viz to start taking a few more risks when it comes to new pickups

                              That is exactly what I thought too.

                                ^Heh, I also thought the same thing at first. My favorite show coming to Blu-ray would be the treat of a lifetime.

                                In regards to SM, I'm so happy that the pre-order volume surprised even Viz! I sure hope it keeps up this momentum with the later sets.
