Sailor Moon Volume 3 finishes up the equivalent of Season 1 of the Sailor Moon anime, and beginning the next arc of the story. In Volume 3 we see the senshi use the Moon Sword for the first time, and a much more tragic telling of the battle against Queen Beryl. As the inner senshi struggle to help Sailor Moon with the battle, Usagi fights to return Mamoru to normal and bring him back to her. As a fan who had mostly only seen the anime, it's wonderful to see more of the bond between Usagi and Mamoru that is often glossed over. Sailor Moon never moves along slowly, and the final battle is no exception to the rule. NOTE: The second arc of the manga is one place where the anime starts to depart from the series, and does not contain the 'Ail & Ann' storyline. The next arc soon begins and we are introduced to Chibi-Usa, and the Black Moon Clan. Peace never lasts however, and things quickly begin to fall apart for the Sailor Senshi.

Fans of the the use of the Japanese names will be happy to know that this has followed through to the Black Moon clan, and we see 'Demando' instead of 'Diamond' and 'Chibi-Usa' rather than 'Rini'.

I was extremely happy to see the gorgeous color pages at the beginning of the volume, as these are beautifully detailed and painted. In a bit of fan-girl squeeing, I was also happy to see the use of the image showing the inner senshi paired with the four generals as well for a chapter image and use of Mamoru's actual abilities as Prince of the Earth.

I finally got my hands on this the other day and as my grades can attest, I spent the day reading and re-reading this rather than focusing on studying for tests.

This volume finishes off the first story arc of Sailor Moon and moves into the second arc concerning Chibi-Usa and the Dark Kingdom. It's been a while since I've read the TokyoPop versions, but I could notice a few things that seemed to be different in this volume. (For one, I don't remember seeing the DK crew vaporizing what appeared to be a young girl/teen.) It brings a darker tone to the series that the initial English releases never had.

I'm still absolutely loving the manga covers for the series so far. The artwork in general is gorgeous, but the covers look fantastic and are attractive to look at. (People unfamiliar with the series might not know what they're picking up, but odds are that anyone savvy with manga could give them a rough description of the series.)

Now something I want to mention in this review is that if you're more familiar with the anime version, you'll probably be wondering where the Ail and Ann story arc is and why it's not here. That's because the Doom Tree saga was an anime only story arc that was written so the manga could progress far enough for a second anime season to be made. (Depending on how much you liked this arc this will either be a good or bad thing.)

Ah, the end of the Dark Kingdom arc, and the beginning of the Black Moon Arc. While I thoroughly enjoyed the finale of the Dark Kingdom arc, and I have to say I have a bit of a girl crush on Sailor Venus now, it was choppy. Which surprises me as this is the third addition to the series. Usually meaning story and art panels become smoother. Not choppier. The finale was indeed choppy. If it had been a bit smoother this volume probably would have gotten a higher rating from me. Alas, the chop-chop and then the "villain of the week" comes back. And even they were a tad skippy.

That being said, I really-really-really liked the wrap up of the Dark Kingdom arc. The romance between Usagi and Mamoru has hit that beautiful sweet spot. Or as I like to call it, the "ahhhhhh" moment. Combining past lives into a present day romance, tragedy, and by it's own right a happy ending. While it's not the end, clearly, it's a happy one for the story arc. Even better, is that while Usagi and Princess Serenity officially become one, Usagi states it's still her. There is a more mature side of her present and continues to grow, but I still love that she’s still her silly self. Which readers get to see in old-school Princess Serenity.

I'm still a weeeee bit bummed that the other characters aren't getting more development. There's some, especially as someone is slowly picking off the Scouts. But it doesn't really make me feel closer to the ladies. Sailor Venus had some amazing page time as the true leader of the Sailor Scout’s group as she does everything in her power to protect the Princess/Queen of the Moon. A-mazing. I can see why Takeuchi created SailorV first, and kept her in the Sailor Moon universe. (Yeah, see my girl crush is shining.

I read volume two of this forever ago (meaning: over the summer), and was a little blurry as to what had happened, and I hadn't reviewed it, but I didn't want to re-read it. So, I just went ahead and read this one. It took me a tiny bit of time to get back into it, but once I was, it went by rather quickly.

I said in my first review that I was impressed with this series, given how not impressed I had been with the prequel and what little I had seen of the anime, and that's still true. I'm rather surprised with how good this series is, and really pleased and enjoying it a lot.

In the last volume, the evil Metalia turned Tuxedo Mask evil, which was horrible, and I thought he would be stuck that way for several more volumes, but he changed in this volume. I was very pleasantly surprised by this, but am so glad, since he's one of my favorite characters, if not my actual favorite.

There was some fighting with Queen Metalia, and she started darkening the world for a bit before she was overthrown. I wasn't surprised by this when it happened, but was curious as to where the series was going to go from there. The girls all got more powerful after that happened, the crystal was fixed and the moon kingdom was repaired. The girls have a tiny bit of time to relax, and then a little girl, claiming her name is Usagi, interrupts Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask by falling from the sky and landing on top of them. Also, a man, who I believe to be Sailor Mars' love interest, shows up, named Asanuma, and I'm looking forward to the development there.

A new enemy shows up, and the goings-on seem to be very much like what happened with Metalia. Including some kidnappings, another thing I'm suspecting is going to happen often.
