Hulu has landed a deal to stream Sailor Moon, remastered and uncensored

Raise your hand if you remember that anime from the ’90s called Sailor Moon - now put that hand down and fire up Hulu if you want to see the show’s female warriors kick ass on screen again. Apparently, the company recently cut a deal to stream a remastered version of all 200 Sailor Moon episodes, full and uncensored. Yes, that means you’ll finally see all the elements that were infamously butchered during the series’ first run on US TV. In addition to all the existing episodes, the deal will also include the Sailor Moon remake that’ll start airing later this year, three feature films and various specials. 

Hulu has gotten its hands on iconic Japanese anime series “Sailor Moon,” bringing it back to U.S. audiences for the first time in almost a decade. The Internet TV service will stream the first four episodes of “Sailor Moon” — uncut and remastered — starting Monday, May 19, through a deal with distribution company Viz Media, which acquired exclusive North American rights to the franchise from Tokyo-based Toei Animation Co. Hulu will add two new episodes of the 200-episode series each subsequent Monday. Viz’s NeonAlley.com platform also will distribute the series via the Hulu and Hulu Plus video player. Initially, the “Sailor Moon” episodes will be subtitled. On Hulu, “Sailor Moon” will join other anime titles available at hulu.com/anime, including select episodes and movies of “Pokemon,” “Naruto Shippuden,” “Bleach,” “Shonen Jump’s One Piece,” “Yu-Gi-Oh” and “Dragon Ball Z.”
