Madman has not yet confirmed if they will go through with their plan to release Sailor Moon on Blu-ray. The home-video release of Sankarea: Undying Love was delayed back in 2013. This was due to the discovery that FUNimation, the North American licensor and dubber of the anime, was given the censored television broadcast version instead of the unedited version released on home video in Japan. Initially, a replacement program was going to be made available for any customers who purchased the censored version. However, the home video release has been delayed for one-and-a-half years and only just been re-announced.
FUNimation also delayed the home video release of Ben-To due to discovering “inconsistencies associated with the materials used to create the release”. Initially set to be released several months ago, both FUNimation and Madman have delayed their releases of the series until now.
