Sailor Moon 8′s here, box is on the way!

I’m finally back in the office after three days of being shut up in my apartment. We experienced no damage or power outages, but our thoughts are with all the people here in New York and across the East Coast who were less lucky. The transit system here is still in chaos (the only reason I’m here is that my subway line is one of the only ones back up and running), so if we’re a little slow getting back to anyone this week, that’s why!

But on to happier topics: Sailor Moon 8 is now available! This incredibly dramatic volume marks the conclusion of the Infinity Arc and the climactic appearance of Sailor Saturn! (Here’s my suggested musical accompaniment.) We hope you all enjoy it.

The box sets are also getting ready to go! As you may have heard, they include Vol. 1-6 as well as an exclusive set of stickers. (You can preorder one here.) We sent Stephen Pakula, our production manager, to the printer to check on them a while back, and he took loads of photos of the boxes and books. Those of you who follow us on Twitter may have seen these already, but everyone else — click “Continue reading” below for a peek behind the scenes!

Stay safe and dry, everyone!

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Why would you make such awesome box sets AFTER I already bought the individual volumes?!?!? No cool Sailor Moon stickers for me……

    Hi. I was wondering if you would consider offering just the box for sale. I already have the first eight volumes.

      Hi Megan,

      Unfortunately the original print run is on a different paper stock, which means that if you bought the first print run your books actually won’t fit in this box. So we can’t offer it for sale separately. Sorry!

        I’ll bet the 1st print run books WILL fit in that box just a bit tight. Nobody there wants to make money selling empty boxes. Hmm… Maybe they would.

    Hi!
    Will there be any more Sailor Moon boxes in the near future?

    Hi Sebastian,

    Yes, we’ll be releasing a second box set, also of six books, next November.

    So you mean, the prints that come with the box are smaller in size? or thinner compared to the individual run? And that the individual prints have thicker papers that’s why they won’t fit in box?

      Hi Utao_pie,

      We were out of inventory on several of the volumes, so we had to do new print runs of them. Those were on different paper, so we had to make the box smaller to accommodate them. As a result, if you tried to put your first-print individual volumes into the empty box, they would be too big and the box would bulge or split. I hope that answers your question.

    Hi, do you know if you are planning to publish the Sailor Moon short stories volumes 1 & 2 in English? Thank you! (I own this box set and the individual volumes…obviously an avid collector XD).

      Hi Riko,

      Yes, we are planning to publish the Sailor Moon short stories in two volumes after we complete the main series.

    My Sailor Moon boxed set came in the mail yesterday. Everything was intact, but there were no stickers in the box. =(

    After the second sailor moon box with volumes 7-12 will you be selling the sailor moon short stories together in a box set?

    Will the second sailor moon box set that features volumes 7-12 included stickers too?

    Hello! I just want to say, you’ve all done a great job with these new translations and I’m super happy that I bought them, but I was wondering, since the volumes you’re releasing are the early 2000 versions of the Sailor Moon books is there any interest on your end to acquiring the rights to publish the new 2013 versions currently releasing in Japan? I understand you may not have any interest, I’m just curious because you guys have done such a good job with these versions.

    Thanks!
