Let me prelude my review by stating that I am a very purist Sailor Moon fan. The American forms of most Sailor Moon products usually infuriate me, such as the dub of the show, the movies, and the manga (comic). I speak Japanese, and the translations of the show on television and the VHS movies are horrible! This is mainly because the show was intended for adults and teens in Japan, but in America it is intended for children. Therefore, some of the complexity of the story lines and some of the deep love and emotion is lost, but the story of Sailor Moon, or Tsukino Usagi (Serena, for the dubbies) is still wonderful. To any adult or teen fan of Sailor Moon, I recommend the DVD versions of the movies (where you can watch the subtitled Japanese version) and the Mixx manga translations (which are quite good, at least as good as English can be translated from Japanese). This book is simplified greatly, and the characters are far more archetypical; therefore I recommend this book not to die-hard SM fans, but to young children who love the tv show or who need a new hero.
