5.0 out of 5 stars Fun magical adventure! 24 Dec 2011
By DNN90
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'll keep this short and sweet. This manga was originally meant to be a present for my sister who is typically into this type of stereotypical genre (you know high school, slice of life, romance etc etc etc). I read a few pages (you know just wanted to see if its any good before i give this to my sister) and eventually the pages turned to chapters and before I knew it I had finished Volume 1 and was starting Volume 2 (I ordered both!). What i had initially thought to be a run-of-the-mill shoujo manga had completely engulfed me into this new world, this is definitely kudos to the mangaka as his story is amazing so far (yes i've already order Volume 3&4). Big thumbs up for Sailor Moon!

5.0 out of 5 stars Memories.. 9 Nov 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Sailor Moon was one of the most iconic characters in my childhood.
Just when I thought that the Sailor Moon manga series were hard to find (and if I HAD found them, they would be really expensive to buy due to it being so rare) and are out of print, I was just really happy to see that they are re-printing the manga series again! =D
I can't express how happy I am even more so now that I have been given the chance to collect the Volumes (waiting for when the other Volumes of Sailor Moon are released!).
But in terms of the Amazon services, I would also like to mention that this product came before the expected delivery date and as usual, Amazon has always sent me items that are high quality and in excellent condition. THANKS A BUNCH!

5.0 out of 5 stars A classic reborn! 2 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As someone who was too young to buy Sailor Moon when it was first released in English, despite enjoying the anime series, the idea of a rerelease excited me immensely. And I was not disappointed.

Kodansha have done themselves a great service by retaining the Japanese feel and not trying to over-Anglicize or censor the manga, as was done with the original translations.
While the decision to keep in Japanese names, honourifics and pop references may alienate some readers, it actually keeps the manga closer to the feel of the original, a good goal for anyone translating a work into another language, and a goal I think Kodansha reached.
Also, for those not quite so Japan-savvy, they have included a glossary of sorts at the end of the story, explaining some of the more obscure phrases and even how some of the puns which would not make sense in English have been translated.

The dialogue runs smoothly, though the story is a lot faster than I had anticipated, being used to the "filler" of the anime. But the fast pace drew me in, and kept my attention, rather than making me want to skip ahead to get to the next interesting part - it was all interesting!

The art, of course, is beautiful, particularly the brightly-coloured pages at the beginning of the book, which have been rendered beautifully.

I would reccomend anyone to pick this up and give it a go. The story of Sailor Moon is both a timeless romance and a decent action. I would suggest, however, not to allow young children to read it, as despite the pretty cover there are some dark themes throughout the entire series.

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect 23 Dec 2011
i was really doubtful about this product, i wasn't sure whether the translation or layout would be good but i was delighted when i recieved it. the translation is very good, it uses the original Japanese names and layout. there is the addition of the first few pages being in colour which is nice. for any sailor moon fans i definably recommend this volume, the manga is so much better the anime, it was a really enjoyable read.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT!! 12 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'll start off by saying I've never read any Manga before and this was my first. I'm a big fan of the Sailor Moon anime so decided to expand my horizons with the franchise and try the manga. I was a bit confused at first because for those who don't know, manga start from the back page and work their way backwards, which took a while to get used to.

I wont spoil the story line but it was great, it introduced the reader to Sailor Moon, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and Tuxedo Mask. Cant wait to read Volume 2!!
