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...
It starts out with Sailor Moon learning she's the leader of the 3 other sailor scouts. When Serena faints and finds herself with Tuxedo Mask, she uses the moon wand Luna gave her, and with Tuxedo Mask's help, she uses it against the negaverse. Later on, we find out the true identity of Tuxedo Mask, and Serena starts to fall for Darien, as Darien falls for her. Finally, when Sailor Moon is about to be killed by Zoicite (Also spelled Zoysite, and Zoycite), Sailor Venus (A.K.A. SAILOR V!) saves her. Artemis (Sailor Venus's talkingcat) tells the other Scouts that Sailor Venus is the moon princess. But is she really? And why does Sailor Moon's Tiara change from straight to a large crescent moon with a red jewel in the middle? So many twist and turns to keep you hanging! You must read this manga!
Then I picked up the Mixx translations, and...well. I admit that it's a lot easier to read this than to have the Japanese manga in one hand and an English translation in the other. But the English translations I originally had are a lot more faithful to the original than this. Mixx seems to delight in changing things for no particular reason ("I like to eat pudding" becomes "I like to eat Pringles" - wha?) and to alter the little notes from Naoko until they barely resemble what she originally wrote. I'm of a mixed opinion here, and I doubt I'll be buying more of the Mixx versions.
