I have been Sailormoon fan for so many years (since 6th grade until now - I'm 28), and had a chance to read various online scanlations, official translation book (previous published Sailormoon by Tokyo Pop if I'm not wrong), and to be honest, I was not so happy with the way they changed the name and the way people call each other in the original Japanese version. It caused me confusion and indeed left me a feeling that the translation didn't convey what the Japanese version meant. And when I ordered this book, I was a little bit worried if I'm wasting my time again. However, it proved itself. I'm completely satisfied with the way it was translated (especially with the fact that it keeps Usagi-chan or replaced by a bunny face (cute! :)), not Serena or whatsoever), the paper quality is amazing (3-4 pages in color art - so beautiful!) and there are even pages in the end explaining details on events, places, terms or some Japanese jokes to help the reader understand the story and the background better. What else to say? Totally recommended for new reader (trust me, the story is way much better than the anime - in case you saw the anime and became an anti fan) and must-have for hard core fan. Can't wait to order the rest of the collection! :)Keep up the good job, publisher!

As a whole I am very happy with these new editions and translations. This volume is no different. The color pages are lovely, and it's nice to see the artwork not flipped for translation. (Though, most manga stopped doing this ages ago at this point anyway.)

My only big problem, and I'm sure it isn't with every copy, is that pages 44 and 45 have a huge thick black line down them, which completely obscures much of the text and image. This is in the first part of the book, Act 17. I thought at first maybe it was part of the story, so I dug out my Mix edition, and it wasn't present, and I even dug out my original Japanese release and it wasn't present. I guess I got the bad copy. This is the only thing I would say to watch out for! If you happen to buy the book somewhere else, in person, be sure to check first! I bought my copy from Amazon so I couldn't check. As always though, I have no issues with Amazon, everything comes at a great price, packaged perfectly and with good shipping speed.

The most recent installment of the newly reprinted Sailor Moon series is, like the previous volumes, amazing.
I had to subtract one star because:
- the translations are somewhat stilted and awkward in places
- the translator notes at the end of this particular volume are mostly useless
- some of the lettering/dialogue gets caught between the pages and interrupts an otherwise smooth reading experience

Still highly recommended, this series broke a lot of new ground when it was first published, and brings back happy memories.

This needs to be said: "The choppy still continues." At first it wasn't noticeable at all, but then towards the end there's scenes that show Chibiusa where it was flashbacking, present daying, and then—?—confusion. It was so rough I had to go back and read it again to understand it. I'm still a little iffy on what happened “exactly” 100 percent. But I got enough of it that I'm not too worried.

What I love is how the guardians are slowly being picked off. However, what I loved the most is that this allowed some time with Makoto, Sailor Jupiter. It allowed readers to see past her strong "yankee" persona and see the softy she is. Plus, I caught a hint of a romance? What's even cooler is how the time traveling is coming in, and I believe it's affecting Usagi. It's interesting how she's jealous of Chibiusa and the attention that Mamoru gives her. Clearly Mamoru immediately understands who Chibiusa is and her importance to him. Usagi. Well let's be honest she's a bit of a selfish person. Mamoru is her man, and I understand that in both lives she really hasn't had time with Mamoru. They still need to build up their love and trust. So Usagi's jealousy is understandable. Unlike a lot of readers I can see how this could lead to her future self becoming distant with someone she's supposed to love unconditionally. Jealousy is a powerful emotion. Plus, let's be honest Mamoru does kind of ignore her . . .

The Black Moon arc is in full swing and the art style is truly inspiring. The future world of Crystal Tokyo is gorgeous, even in its death. The villains are meh. The evil Prince Demand having a crush on Neo Tokyo Princess Serenity is a very interesting plot device. Looking at the drawing of Serenity who could blame him?

I'd forgotten that the newest volume of Sailor Moon came out this month, so when I saw it on the shelves of my local B&N, I instantly grabbed it off the shelves and made for the front register like someone was going to snatch my copy out of my hands. (Hey, I've been to conventions. It's murder out there.)

I was almost immediately rewarded with a lovely set of splash pages in full color. If there's one thing I absolutely love about the reprints, it's that Kodansha has tried as hard as possible to mirror the Japanese editions. The translations might be awkward, but at least we're saved from the terrible nicknames that Mixx/TokyoPop gave us. (I'll never forgive them for having Tuxedo Mask/Darien/Mamoru call Usagi "Buns" as a shortening for Bunny.)

The translation will probably still have awkward points for some readers, but overall I was pretty happy with this volume. I didn't see anything that really stood out that bugged or bothered me, which was nice. It was awesome being able to step back into the series and enjoy all of the differences between the anime and the manga, especially in this saga. I have to say that I seem to like the character of Chibi-Usa more in this translation in the manga- she seems more like a scared child than the manga equivalent of Scrappy-Doo that she seemed to appear like in the Mixx translations.

One thing that sort of surprised me was that there were hints of sexuality in this volume, with Usagi and Mamoru sharing a pretty lingering floor kiss at one point. (There's also a scene of him later bare-chested in a flashback, which came across to me that they did more than kiss.) Don't worry parents, there's absolutely nothing gratuitous here and if you weren't looking for it or looking to read anything into it, you'd never even pick up on it.
