Another favorite shoujo and anime series is Sailor Moon. If you haven’t read this yet? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR IT’S LIKE THE BEST THING EVER. I’m slowly making my way through the new manga as they release them and let me just say that the colored pages are AMAZEBALLS. Also, SWEET NOSTALGIA. This was my face after I found out they were re-releasing the manga and rebooting the anime series:

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 ...more
Okay, I'm still not getting how no one guessed Sailor Moon was the Moon Princess before it is 'shockingly' revealed by the moon on her forehead. I guess the Sailor Venus double-thing works, but it still is blatantly obvious that Sailor Moon is the princess. Oh well. (view spoiler)

There were a few interesting turns, but I find that Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask's relationship just shot up out of no where.
I'll admit that this is one of my favorite parts of the series for reasons I can't really divulge due to spoiler reasons. (There's got to be at least 4-5 people who haven't seen the anime or read the Wikipedia synopsis.) I'm going to review this in two parts: the artwork and the story.

First the artwork: It's gorgeous. This is a pivotal time in the series, so the artwork gets both dreamy and serious accordingly. The splash pages at the beginning of the manga really are fun to look at. A great add
Now that we've gotten all the introductions out of the way, I'm excited to see where Sailor Moon will take me.

This volume was all about the mythology. It answers a lot of the questions posed in volume one. And although it didn't have a lot of information about the Guardians themselves, the mission has become infinitely more clear. This can only be a good thing as the plot quickly progresses.

I'm still surprised how much happens in just these first two books. In just this volume alone there were
Sailor V appears and Artemis claims that she is Princess Serenity. Alright.

Now, has it never occurred to the five girls that they're all PLANETS, but Sailor Moon is a Satellite orbiting the Earth? If one of them was indeed the Princess, wouldn't she somehow stand out and not be the THIRD planet away from the sun?

Mercuy - Venus - Earth (Moon) - Mars - Jupiter... (later we have Pluto coming but not that has been completely spoiled now that we know that Pluto's actually a dwarf planet).

Anyhow, I li

Tuxedo Mask and Usagi are just too damn cute. I love, love, love this series !!!
LOVE IT! Tuxedo Mask <3 Ich will die Reihe unbedingt vervollständigen :)
Cassandra Miller
Oh Usagi and Mamoru, someday you will live happily ever after, but not today.
This is my favourite volume of the Sailor Moon manga simply because I love how Usagi finds out Mamoru is Tuxedo Mask (I am sorry but the anime version is just sad in comparison, he has a rose therefore he must be Tuxedo Mask, please). In the manga it is so much more then just a mask or a rose, it is the colour of his eyes. Usagi even says that she is surprised she never saw it before, the colour of his eyes, like she co

Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon ist die Neuauflage des fast 20 Jahre alten Mangas rund um die Sailor Kriegerinnen. Hauptsächlich ist die Übersetzung neu, die Leserichtung ist japanisch und die Cover sind ebenfalls neu. Einige Panels wurden von Takeuchi überarbeitet und es gibt Farbseiten <3

Der zweite Band knüpft natürlich nahtlos an Band 1 an. Die Sailor-Kriegerinnen begegnem ihrem fünften Mitglied und der Prinzessin. Aber auch die Gegenspieler ruhen nicht und schicken immer wieder Feinde aus. Al

This is a review for all 12 volumes.

I grew up watching the anime version of Sailor Moon. I have been enjoying watching Sailor Moon Crystal and the old episodes of Sailor Moon on Hulu. When I discovered that my local library had the manga, I had to read it.

These books are so much fun and ridiculous. I will caution the prospective reader that the manga is a bit disjointed at times. The original anime did a much better job at character development than the manga. Even though the series is a bit si
Hermoso, mucho más dramático y complejo que el anterior.
Maneja muy bien el romance y la historia de amor trágica, además hay algunos dibujos que dan ganas de enmarcarlos y llenar las paredes con ellos. Bellísimo.

Recommends it for: Closet Sailor Moon fans who are still confused over some of the details
This volume is a good chuckle because it explains the backstory of the Sailors, Tuxedo Mask, and the "dark force" in the universe. It basically helps the reader figure out what the fudge is going on and finally explains Sailor V.

And it's so ridiculous that it is almost a parody of anime. And I can't help but love it. Usagi and her friends are so silly and fun.

Something is definitely missing from the manga: pretty colors. That was part of what made the TV series so appealing. The manga definitely
Encore un très chouette moment de passé en compagnie de mes magical girls préférées. Certes ce manga n'a pas vraiment très bien vieilli, pourtant je retombe carrément en enfance avec cette série, retrouvant avec plaisir Usagi et ses amies. J'ai plus tendance à rigoler devant certains passages un peu niais et à sourire bêtement aussi. C'est l'effet Sailor Moon ça, tout simplement. Quand on suivait avidement l'animé il y a plus de 20 ans, je crois qu'on a tous (ou presque) à peu près ce genre de r ...more

My all time favorite anime show

As with Vol.1, I found the illustrations to be breathtakingly gorgeous and the translation to be really well done. Any Japanese slang or cultural references are contextualized at the back of the book and I really appreciated learning a little bit about Japan as I read.

This book really builds on the backstory from Vol.1 with less of the rapid who-are-we-fighting? pace. The romance between Usagi and Mamo-Chan is palpable: it adds a more humanizing touch to the out-of-this-world alternate dimension
Originally posted at Coffee & Wizards.

Volume 2 of this classic manga contains more elements you’ll recognize from season 1 of the anime: namely the reveal of Tuxedo Mask’s identity to his kidnap and transformation. Usagi/Mamoru shippers won’t be disappointed, and fans of the anime will enjoy seeing a more complex version of their favourite characters, especially Usagi who is more well-rounded in the manga than she is in the anime. There’s also some great Silver Millennium backstory, which is
It's amazing how some aspects of the story seem to move incredibly fast (such as finding the whole team, or Bunny, er Usagi and Darien, um, Mamoru's growing attraction for each other) and other parts, such as going up against the enemy seem slow. I know that there are several factors in play with this notion. I'm very familiar with then anime, as is most kids my age are up until the outer scouts start coming in. I have also read this before. I just want to skip to the good parts and forget about ...more

Nach dem letzten Kampf wacht gegen die Mächte des Bösen wacht Usagi in der Wohnung von Mamoru Chiba auf. Schnell muss sie feststellen, dass der freche Student, der sie immer wieder neckt, in Wahrheit Tuxedo Mask ist. Der Mann, der ihr im Kampf gegen das Böse immer wieder zur Seite steht und ihr das Leben rettet. Auch er findet ihre wahre Identität heraus. Mittlerweile ist aus Spott so etwas wie Zuneigung geworden und schon der Anblick dieses jungen Mannes lässt Usagis Herz höher schlagen.
(Review originally posted on my livejournal account:

In the second volume, the last sailor guardian, Sailor Venus (AKA Sailor V) reveals herself to the group. The identity of the Moon Princess is revealed, the Legendary Silver Crystal is found and the girls found out some important truths about the past that have brought them to their current situation.

Though I kept it very brief, a lot of things happen in this second volume. Usagi is revealed to the Moon

While I can't see this series becoming my all time favorite, there are aspects of it that I really enjoy.


I think the battle theme between good and evil is something that I can really see myself becoming attached to. It is a theme that I find very interesting if done right. In this second installment, we learn a little bit more about who (or what) the Sailor Moon guardians are fighting. We also get a glimpse into the history of the guardians, and I found this insight to be very
Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, Volume 2 continues the story of Sailor Moon and the Sailor Scouts. In this volume we get further development of Usagi and Mamrou's relationship, along with some really damn good sexual tension between the two characters. The scouts are forced to step their game up as the Dark Kingdom increases their efforts to fine the Imperium Silver Crystal.

Since that is all I can say without any spoilers I will highlight some little things in this book that I liked. I enjoy the f
Estou a gostar imenso de ler os livrinhos desta série, que após tantos anos me vem surpreender pela positiva.

A história está, a meu ver, muito melhor do que a que nos é apresentada no Anime (ou então sou eu que estou muito esquecida). Agora há coisas que me fazem muito mais sentido... Para além de que me está a parecer uma série um pouco mais madura, exactamente o oposto do que esperava, pois receava que talvez fosse demasiado infantil para mim nesta altura.

Adorei saber a história da Princesa Se
Oh! Kan bikin penasaran banget sama vol. 3.
Tapi yang Renewal Editions ini rasanya cepet amat ya, vol pertama udah ketahuan, yang vol kedua ini udah ketemu sama Queen jahatnya. Tapi aku lihat di seriesnya sampai vol duabelas. Aku malah jadi kepikiran, apa lagi yang akan diceritakan ya? Iya, bertemu dengan Uranus, Neptunus dll--hm, mungkin aku sudah saking lamanya tidak baca lagi sampai lupa.
Tapi di vol dua ini sangat sedih ya T-T
Sangat menyentuh.

i love how the story in the manga is developing.
Tuxedo mask finally reveals his true identity to sailor moon and it was so beautiful! it is clear that those two truly love each other... i can't wait to see how their relationship develops.
Also we meet sailor venus in this volume and finally learn that sailor v is not really the princess and sailor moon is in reality the princess. i liked very much that we get to find out about usagi's past as a princess
*Queen Diva*
Ahh!! This volume was a lot more like the Sailor Moon I knew and loved... complete will silly shenanigans from the friends as they hang out! The storyline is actually pretty intense! And I liked that it really had one main focus instead of multiple small ones like the last volume. It makes it seem less rushed and the reader is able to get into the storyline more. More importantly, Sailor Venus joined the team in this volume, so clearly it's great ;-) Though she actually isn't my favorite Sailor ...more
Sarah Maddaford
Usagi starts the volume in Mamoru's room where they find out each others' secrets. The pace continues to be quick with Sailor V on scene claiming to be the Moon Princess. (view spoiler) The volume ends before the final battle, but I would have been severely disappointed if the story had been so condensed that the final battle was in this one.

I do miss some of the filler that the anime added. You get what
Sarah Jane Smith
Here we go! This is the Sailor Moon I remember reading in single issue releases and in Tokyopop's original GN releases. So naturally, it's more of a re-read than a new read, albeit with Kodansha's brand new translation which does the story a lot of kindnesses, especially with Usagi and the references to name (no more Bunny Tsukino, thank goodness!). I love these chapters of Usagi's memories coming back and the Senshi going to the moon, as well as those involving Usagi and Mamoru's time-spanning ...more
