Hi,
Sorry if this isn't the correct place to post this but please could someone advise if/when the new Sailor Moon Crystal anime which launched on 5th July 2014 will be available to us here in the UK?

Thanks.

You do realize that VPN usage is against our terms of service right?

sorry, stripped out your URLs and referred to a posting that could confirm the availability for the UK.

I watched it on niconico yesterday at about 5:30pm BST and the quality was pretty good but it lost quality in a few places. I then rewatched it an hour later and the quality was perfect.

You can't fullscreen on niconico but you also don't need to register for an account. Niconico is the chosen broadcaster for Japan and it's legally streaming it internationally, subbed in various languages, so if you don't have a local streaming site then you should definitely watch it there because views will be taken into account for ratings etc.

It is a little disappointing that it hasn't been picked up for streaming in the UK, but at least we can still watch it legitimately (and even for free!) and support the show!

Just a note that the quality of the subs were a little iffy in places (more in the quality of the English than in the translation) and the timesetting isn't perfect. But it's perfectly adequate. You also want to make sure you click on the button in the far bottom right corner to stop chat from rolling across your screen!

To get fullscreen you need to change the player settings in the Playback tab to "Fit to screen".

For the UK or other countries not covered by CR, it has to be Nico Nico for now (as per the linked article above):

They have subtitles available in other languages. The links for each are at the top of the English page, but here are a few that might be popular:
