New Limited Edition Sailor Moon Blu-Ray Booklet To Be Reprinted After Labeling Lesbian Relationship As Just A “Friendship”

Viz Media apologized for labeling the relationship between a lesbian couple as just a "friendship."

Viz Media have announced that they will be reprinting the Sailor Moon Stars Limited Edition Blu-Ray booklet following them referring to the romantic relationship between lesbian couple Sailor Neptune and Uranus as a friendship.

The new booklet was included with copies of the Sailor Moon Sailor Stars Part 1 DVD & Blu-Ray release on June 18. The booklet included a relationship chart noting the relationships between major characters appearing in the series. This chart included a mistake that brought back a problem that has long bothered Sailor moon fans since the original U.S. release of Sailor Moon re-labeled Sailor Neptune and Uranus as cousins.

Viz has made it clear that the current label was a mistake and that they will be republishing the booklet. Some fans have said that this is LGBTQ erasure, while other fans claim the book is filled with several mistakes including the nature of other couples, showing that it may be more a result of a sloppy editing process.

With the mistake being fixed and Viz ready to offer replacements to those who have mistake booklets, you will need to track the Viz Media twitter.
