Ok, I'm the crazy loon that does the reviews based on merit and what I know of the originals. I don't know abiout all the other reviewers out there or amazon, but I do my research! First, there are some issues I want to discuss with you guys! Manga is singular and plural, so is senshi and every other Japanese word out there (Hey, how about the guy who said they didn't like them because they were Black and White) It's always and forever MANGA. When there are two, it's still MANGA. Thank you. Arigato even. Considering I know the original, and I have it in front of my face, I can say for you, that the SuperS tend to be translated a tinsy bit better in my taste than the other ones (no offense to the translator) and the SuperS ones tend to have less Americanizations, with the saving grace that Michiru, Haruka, Setsuna, and (I'm assuming soon Hotaru) are retaining their full names only done in American style. Also Makoto, Minako, Usagi, and Amy, may have not had their first name preserved, but their last names were. That gives a plus. As for volume four itself, I can tell ya Chibi-Usa finally arrives. (Rini in this case), and It starts a new plot (Hence, NO there is NO split in the manga like there is in the anime, only equivilents.) I'm telling ya if you don't really want to do the searching, and hate Dic, this is your best option, as a Moonie, it's my duty to rate it 5 stars (though Stu Levy (CEO of Mixx) might not think that I do) Four is a cool manga. If you have any questions, e-mail me.
