There’s something to be said for surprises, because with only a few days notice, VIZ Media announced the Blu-ray and DVD release date of Sailor Moon Crystal‘s second season. Picking up only moments from where Season 1 left off, The Black Moon Arc centers on the Sailor Guardians taking under their protection a mysterious little girl named Chibi-Usa, who is in search of the Silver Crystal. Chibi-Usa turns out to be a refugee from the 30th Century city of Crystal Tokyo, which has come under siege by a band of occult terrorists who believe Utopia isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
SAILOR MOON CRYSTAL Set 2 covers Episodes 15-26 of Sailor Moon Crystal and, like Season 1: Dark Kingdom, will be released in multiple formats.
