When I heard this was coming out to the USA I couldn't resist! I've always loved Aino Minako, and while I knew her back story, I've never had a chance to read. I have to say that I'm glad I did. The translation is beautiful, with the exception of some awkward phrasing here and there. Its funny and a good background for Sailor Moon. A lot of the things that are introduced in Sailor Moon comes from Code Name: Sailor V. It also explains how Minako ends up getting her famous red bow, and her insatiable love of idols. It even shows you a few glimpses of the other sailor senshi, unawakened, in the manga. Which is really cool. Gotta say I love it. 5/5.
