Product Description

Review

"With its whimsical sense of fashion, thrilling adventure and complex backstory, Sailor Moon was like little else young girls had ever before seen on television, and miles above anything American animators were offering them. The anime led to interest in the manga, which in turn became the sort of success that made the bookstore market sit up and take notice. Scratch a modern-day manga fangirl, and you're likely to find someone who watched Sailor Moon when she was young." -The Comics Journal

Format: Paperback
I grew up watching Sailor Moon and in the past few years have been revisiting my old friend. The series is so much more mature than the original English cut was, and has a lot to offer the more 'grown up' audience while still maintaining all of its original charm. For fans of the anime, the manga is a definite read, as this was the way Naoko Takeuchi originally wrote the story. Besides, there are some pretty major differences between the two as the series goes on, so the manga reads fresh even if you know every episode by heart. If you've already read the full manga (like me!) this book is a still a great buy; the cover art is beautiful, as are the first few colour pages that open the story. The translations are new and look pretty accurate, with original jokes left as are and translation notes added at the back to account for cultural & language differences.

A perfect buy for any Sailor Moon fan!

Format: Paperback
I've been waiting for this re-release for a very VERY long time now, and began reading it with high expectations. These expectations were met. I couldn't help but reminisce of the TV show that i loved as a little girl.

For those who don't know, this is the original story that Naoko Takeuchi wrote in the early 90s that was the basis of the popular show. This manga had already been translated to English in the past, but supposedly the translation was poor (or so I've heard, haven't been able to get my hands on a copy), and is quite rare and expensive today. This re-release edited many of these errors, and is now easily accessible to Sailor Moon fans :D (woot!)

The artwork is simply beautiful, the story line is quirky and fun. I like how the original names were kept for the characters (for instance, Sailor Moon is Usagi. NOT Serena or Bunny). The story really draws you in, similarly to how the TV show did for a whole generation of young girls (and secretly, boys as well). This first volume compiles the stories of how the first 4 sailor scouts join the team (Moon, Mercury, Mars, and Jupiter), as well as Sailor Moon's growing intrigue of Tuxedo Mask (of whom I'm reliving a school-girl crush on, haha).

In terms of criticism, i only have the teeny-tiniest things to report. For instance, the scenes tend to be a little jumpy, but this is so common in manga that it was almost expected. Also, there still seems to be some issues with translation here and there. Some expressions were poorly translated and didn't make much sense, although these cases are so minor that they're hardly worth mentioning. Again, very common in manga, so I won't let this affect my rating of 5-stars for this volume ;D

I can't wait now for the release of Volume 2. In the meantime, i got myself a copy of Sailor V (vol.1), which was actually written BEFORE Sailor Moon.

All-in-all, I Highly recommend this AWESOME manga.

Format: Paperback
Setting:
(5/5) Set in Tokyo, Japan, the book is about the "Sailor Scouts". They are guardians who protect people against a group who are trying to find the Legendary Silver Crystal, which apparently has a lot of power. We aren't given much information about the Sailor Scouts or the evil group except that they are both looking for the Legendary Silver Crystal and the Sailor Scouts are supposed to find and protect the "Moon Princess" as well. I'm positive more will be revealed in the next volume.

Story:
(5/5) Usagi Tsukino helps a strange cat with a crescent moon symbol on its forehead. Unexpectedly, the cat finds her later and tells her that she is a Sailor Scout, Sailor Moon, and her duty is to gather the other Sailor Scouts, and find the Legendary Moon Crystal and the Moon Princess, who they much protect. The chapters in the volumes mostly involve Usagi finding the rest of the Sailor Scouts and their fight against a group who are also trying to find the crystal. I grew up with the Sailor Moon anime and although I kind of remembered it, I thought I forgot it for the most part. However, as I read through the manga, each episode started to come back to me.

Artwork:
(5/5) I love the artwork! I love the old style and how every page is detailed and you can see a lot of effort was put into it. Plus I like the new covers of this renewed edition because each volume focuses on one of the Sailor Scout and I prefer when manga focus each cover on an individual character:

Main Character:
(4/5) Usagi is a cry-baby, on the slow side, and loves to eat and laze around (that's something we have in common). But she's kind and means well and in the end charming in her own way.
