***Spoilers ahead***

An amazing finish to the Sailor Moon R arc. This book will take you from the middle of Usagi's kidnapping by Prince Diamond to end of the anime version of the Sailor Moon R arc (the end of the Dark Moon saga). I really like all the frames we see with Neo Queen Serenity!

The artwork is amazing as usual, and the translation has improved from the previous volumes. I like the colour pages in the beginning. I am glad that these volumes were condensed from the original 14 volumes because now you get to read more of the storyline in one book.

I have two problems with the adaption of this manga. The first is that the writing in the book is too close to the spine, which makes you have to bend the book open a lot to read it. The second is that they didn't translate Naoko's comments and just put small images there.

Overall, an amazing value for the price. You are getting almost 250 pages of fantastic artwork and the legacy of sailor moon for around $10!

And for those of you who didn't know, Japan has a re-re-release of the SM manga. I don't know if that's coming to NA...

A great improvement over the prior re-releases May 13 2012
By Tsu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Sailor Moon 5 covers the end of the Black Moon Arc. It's a very revealing and poignant part of the series, which covers the transformation and death of key characters. Beyond that, however, I am extremely pleased at this translation. The fans of SM have voiced concerns regarding the poor quality of the translation of the last 4 volumes which contained everything from translation errors, misspells, and complete typos. ("Princess Beryl" and "Spark Ring Wide Pressure", in example.) This is the first volume released in which no glaring errors exist. I saw no problems with the translation and can only hope (particularly because this volume was slightly delayed) that Kodansha is going over the translations with an editor. Also, they remain true to the original with "Chibi-Moon" and "Black Lady", regardless of any awkwardness the latter may hold for western audiences. It's what the fans have wanted and I'm very pleased with this volume and hope the quality remains the same for the ones to follow.

Sailor Moon & Sailor V Mangas May 21 2012
By Brittany - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I recently ordered Sailor Moon 1-5, as well as Sailor V 1 & 2, and if your an original Sailor Moon manga fan, I recommend it! The bindings, unlike the orginal English release, are well made. Everything is printed beautifully, so the artwork is unobstructed by the binding. Everything is left in it's original format, from the way it's read to the Japanese names. It even has translation and explanations (a mini-reading guide) in the back.
My only problem with the books, is that there's a couple of mis-printed words. Like the words "the the" or instead of "this" it's printed "tis." I've also heard a few of the translations were wrong. That I can't confirm though. ;)

If you haven't read Sailor Moon before, what's wrong with you? Lol. If your a fan of manga/anime you have to read it. It's what originally made manga/anime so popular in the states. If you have a child, it also has a great life lessons about love, friendship, never giving up, etc. And if you just want a feel good read, well, I can speak for my self when I say Sailor Moon and Sailor V mangas make me feel good. It's heart warming. <3

Sailor Moon reprint volume 5-Conclusion of the Black Moon Arc May 8 2012
By Kohinata99 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
*may contain spoilers*
The next volume of the reprints of Sailor Moon in line is volume 5, with a pretty pic of Eternal Sailor Venus on the cover, and just like the previous releases, features gorgeous art and of course, a new, great translation (if not, then better than Tokyopop's back in '97). As the review says, this book concludes the Black Moon Arc of Sailor Moon with the appearances of Black Lady, Death Phantom, Chibiusa's new henshin and many other surprises featuring Neo Queen Serenity, Usagi, Sailor Pluto and many others. What I'm happy about now is that the next Arc in the series is the Infinity Arc in volume 6. That's when the popular Outer Senshi appear. Now that the two plain sagas (but still good!) are finished, we can look forward to the reprint releases of the Infinity, Dream and Stars Arcs, and hopefully the two short story volumes. This volume shouldn't disappoint fans old or new. It just came out today, so run over to Barnes & Noble and go grab a copy!

A Classic Revived for the New Generation March 14 2013
By Sin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Sailor Moon is something that I grew up with as a little girl and it was/is an unforgettable series. Knowing that it has basically been 'brought back to life' brings joy to my heart knowing that consumers of a new generation will be able to enjoy what I was able to enjoy growing up. A fantastic series worth investing in ;D
