3.0 out of 5 stars American Sailor Moon, 1 Oct. 31 2001
By Ileana
Of course, no one expects much from the Americanized version. And if you do, just know now that you shouldn't. (When they translated it, they changed it to be more of a "kid cartoon show", when that's not how it originally is.)
But really, folks. I've only read the first 3 books of the american sailormoon shows, and I can honestly say this is the least favorite. The author simply described what was going on in the show. Well, if you simply do what the teacher describes for a project, that's just average. It's a C. Unlike the next books, this first one doesn't really have much feeling to it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Really potrays the characters. Oct. 14 2003
I love this book! It's great for people who love comedy,romance,and action. Serena (Usagi) is really explained to you in this book. How she's lazy and I hate to say stupid. You see how she improves herself from the beginning of the book to the ending of the book. I'm a real big fan of Sailor Moon and anime and if you are to you should try out this book! It's laugh-out-loud funny!

5.0 out of 5 stars This begins the great novel series. Sept. 20 2003
I personally think this better than the anime. However, I can't say that about the uncut version because I've never seen it before. But I guess thta's the point of Amazon. com: sharing your opinions with other people.
First episode:
Luna gives Serena her "sm" brooch and she defeats Jedite's first monster who steals energy through jewelry.
Second episode{japanese}:
Melvin goes to a fortune teller who is really a monster in disguise and makes him and alot of other people evil.
Third episode:
People who get their letters read on a radio station... fall asleep.

5.0 out of 5 stars I actually love this book Dec 11 2002
By A Customer
I love this book. Sailor Moon (Serena) seems so like the average girl. She's so funny!! I love the battle scenes. I am a new sailor moon fan but I can say I would love to read the second one. Yet from what the other reviewers say I'm going to try to get the orignal japenese volumes. The orignal volumes sound fully detailed,more iteresting,more realistic/and just more fun. Sailor moon is an allsome series. When I first got into the series(I got into the series yesterday!) I actually didn't exspect the fun,lesiure,and iterest I got out of the book. I deffently going to have tons of sailor moon products on my Christmas list!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book! Jan. 29 2002
By A Customer
The Sailor Moon novel series is very well written and great for fans of the TV show. The books are written very much like the cartoon series, so if you like watching the show, you'll love reading these books! Each TV episode is included, and reading them is like watching an episode of Sailor Moon.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable July 5 2001
By A Customer
When I first saw the series, I rolled my eyes at it, thinking it was just like the american series and I didn't need to read it. Well, just out of curiousity, I bought the first two books and found them emmensly enjoyable. They are great reads. Even added into the books are "lost episodes". Episodes that DiC and Cloverway didn't dare turn into a show. Only problem is, is the Calvin Kleins, Brad Pitt, ect. Too much americanizing. I would not recommend this for 8-year-olds. A few things are a tad bit obscene for that age group. Stuart J. Levy did a great job wording things and showing some things *such as transforming* into Usagi's point of veiw.

1.0 out of 5 stars Tsk-tsk, yet another sad thing July 1 2001
By A Customer
I'm going to go ahead and give up. I guess these books are directed straight for little kids. Frankly I'm sick and tired of everything being directed toward little kids when it comes to Sailor Moon. What about us other kids who grew with it? This book is just-"uf." SAD! SAD! I could do better and KEEP it between reading levels. Get a professional! Or try to make even MORE money by making a more mature Sailor Moon novel books - wait. That'd result in literal slauter too. SAD! SAD! These books are okay to buy I guess if you think they look cute on your shelf (which is me I must admit) but if you really want something serious or not so STUPIDLY WRITTEN(because that's exactly what this book is) then read mature fanfics because this is just... "Read once, collection purposes only" material.

3.0 out of 5 stars Anime or Magna? March 22 2001
By mary
I thought the book was ok, except all the americanizing he did. I am offering you the advice I always tell my friends,"If you want it modernized with editings and add ons and Mamoru(darien)as a jerk, go with the anime. But if you want the true story, beautiful pictures, a romantic love story, and to see why the whole world fell in love with Sailormoon, go with the magna. Thats about all I can say.
