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

Sailor Moon Volume 2 Nov. 16 2011
By Serenity-hime - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This second volume of Sailor Moon had me super excited because I've been waiting for re-releases for years since the Tokyopop mangas disappointed me with their translation. However it seems Kodansha isn't spell checking or checking grammar before sending these out. At one point Usagi says "What'll should I do." However, this is really the only problem with them this time around. The use of their Japanese names is wonderful since the English names made me want to gag every time I read them. Overall Sailor Moon Volume 2 is worth the price, especially if you're like me and are a huge Sailor Moon fan.

Flows more naturally now that minor translation issues from vol 1 were fixed Nov. 15 2011
By randystopia - Published on Amazon.com
This volume of Sailor Moon really finds its voice i feel. The first volume i had minor problems with the translation and of the names "princess' and the use of "bro' . This volume they seem to have worked out those translational issue and now it flows more naturally. Definitely thankful for that.

A must for any Sailor Moon fan Nov. 21 2011
By XPx - Published on Amazon.com

This second volume of Sailor Moon is just as great as the first. I did have an issue with some of the pages and being too close to the inside of the book so you had to spread the book pretty wide to read what Usagi was saying. Also, I am not sure why Kodansha decided to use A "bunny" for "Bunny" instead of "Usagi". I suppose it was to save space? It was just awkward seeing a little bunny head in place of her name.
Kudos to them for translating!
Though, it is also odd that Usagi's dad would say, "...Say, Mother?" "What is it, Father?"
They had names, didn't they? But hey, oh well.

This volume continues the story right where it left off and even includes a few extra pages of Naoko's early concept artwork! The art is as always, amazingly beautiful and is a great read. A must have for any Sailor Moon fan!

Fantastic story, but bad translating Jan. 28 2012
By Becky - Published on Amazon.com
I've been a HUGE 'Moonie' (sailor moon fan) for so long. I have eagerly awaited the manga returning and this time in ENGLISH! Which excited me. The art on this series is simply beautiful. It catches the eye and is very tastefully done. The books themselves are very thick with wonderful illustrations by Naoko (GODDESS!)
The way Sailor Mercury looks on this cover is so striking. The water droplets are so gorgeous and the Chibi Sailor Mercury on the back cover is a really nice touch! Very 'Sailor Moon Channel'!

It's not the story itself that is bad, it is the translating of words that simply confuse me and sound effects that make no sense at all! I'm not too knowledgeable of Japanese 'honorific's' and what they are, but how the characters talk to each other does not seem logical in any way to me in most of the story.

It is better than the first book, but just not enough. I also am sick of the printing issues. I had no missing pages, but the ink in my book was incredibly LIGHT in parts which made it hard to read and which reminded me of the bad photocopying jobs they did when I was at school to save money...

Great follow up volume! March 21 2014
By Shera (Book Whispers) - Published on Amazon.com
Kukuku! This volume really surprised me! Especially the relationships between Usagi and Mamoru (Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask). Takeuchi did a wonderful job of making me feel for these two in such a short amount of time. Especially, once the all the scouts finally meet up—SailorV finally comes in. The whole Princess of the Moon was handled very well, and if the art for the missing princess had been a bit more vague I think it could have almost fooled readers. Make that a really big almost. Ok. No the readers would have never been fooled. Still it's the thought that counts.

The art is still gorgeous and the color pages are so pleasing! Ah, they're fantastic. It all goes together well with the memory reveals, and the origin story. Mythology! Yes, thank you! (It was sorely missing from the anime.) The tragic past of Prince Endymion and Princess Serenity is the right kind of tragedy and melodrama I love. Especially when there's plenty of sweet notes to make my cynical heart go all "ahhhhhhhhh!"

It can be argued that this volume still has it's "monster of the week plot". Let's be honest most super hero/fighting manga do. This time around Takeuchi does a wonderful job with volume two and lifts it up from the last volume’s cheesier standardized monster of the week fodder. Even more I enjoyed the gem stone guys—as I fondly call the guys named after rocks—when their twist came up. Which I wasn't expecting, but wish it could have been explored more! There was a hint of a lost love with Sailor Venus that is just begging to be realized!

It's a official I'm hooked! Volume 2 is a great indicator of how this series can grow. Usagi has already grown so much, but what I love is that deep down she's still the fun and lazy person she was before. She's just growing up. More growth on the other scouts would be the cherry on top, but there's still plenty of time for that. The funny thing is that harsh manga judge inside of me wants to give this series a lower rating, but I've been converted. Especially since Sailor Moon gets to save damsel Tuxedo Mask as well as be saved sometimes. It's official the manga is working for me, when the anime couldn't. (I lied, I mentioned the anime.)

Sexual Content: Some kissing not much else. Clean!

4/5- Great! Really enjoyed it.
