In May 2014, Viz Media announced that they licensed the series from the start for an uncut release, and also that they would eventually plan to release the fifth season on Blu-ray and DVD. On December 14, 2015, Viz Media streamed the first episode of Sailor Moon Sailor Stars, along with the series finale of Sailor Moon SuperS, on Hulu.
