Update: The Sailor Moon anime is currently off the air in Australia. The Sailor Moon manga has been re-released though and can be bought in Australian book stores and several online Australian retailers!.
This page will be updated with more information (and newer information) regarding Sailor Moon as we get towards the airing of the New Sailor Moon Anime in 2013.
In late 2001 The Big Breakfast (as the new show was called) was replaced with a music video show and on Sept 12 a regular news program replaced the music show. In early 2002 Cheeze TV on Channel 10 bought the free to air rights to Sailormoon and started airing it.
So far only the first two seasons of Sailormoon (up to the defeat of Wiseman and the revelation of Rini being Serena's daughter) have been screened on "free to air" tv however all four currently dubbed seasons (Original, R, S and SuperS) and the three movies are shown on a regular basis on Australia's Cartoon Network and FoxKids
Currently not airing.
Fox Kids from Monday to Friday at 7:00am and at 3:30pm
Sailormoon Original & SailormoonR DVDs: These two series can be found in almost any store in Australia for AU$24.95 and they contain on average 7 episodes per DVD making them a worthy investment. Unfortunately for perfectionists they have English audio only but for me that's not really an issue and besides the US (Region 1) versions didn't have the original tracks either. Speaking of the US (Region 1) version Madman Entertainment improved the Australian (Region 4) version with better, easier to navigate menus and crisper chapter selections! If you can't find these in store I reccomend EzyDVD.com.au. They're an Australian based company and they offer FREE OVERNIGHT DELIVERY! I've used them before and will definitly be using them again.
SailormoonS, SuperS and Movies DVDs: Buying the 3rd (S) and 4th (SuperS) seasons and the movies is a bit more tricky for Australians than buying the first two seasons as none of these DVDs have been released locally (in Region 4 DVD format). I bought my copies from Amazon, a HUGE American online store with a great reputation.
Kinokunia (the largest book store in Australia, located on the top floor of the Galleries Victoria in Sydney (opposite the QVB) has just started stocking Region 1 (and 4) dvds and they are selling for REALLY cheap prices (around the same as a local Region 4 dvd!). Definitly worth checking out!
If you don't have a DVD and don't want to buy a DVD player you can also get VHS of the movies and series from Amazon and almost ALL VHS Players can play them. Just make sure it has NTSC Playback written on it somewhere.
Sailormoon Manga: Very easy to get. Pretty much all Comic shops stock the Sailormoon manga and even a few book shops! Though if you're already ordering some DVDs or VHS from Amazon you might as well pick up some manga there as well. It's much cheaper to buy from America than Australia (damn tax!).
Sailormoon CDs: Most Australian music stores USED to stock the first two English Sailormoon CDs but I'd be VERY suprised if a store still had some copies left. If you ask at the desk they should be able to order them in for you.
