The translation seems well in comparison to the Tokyopop print as usual. I didn't see any attack name mistakes, mispellings (as far as I can see, correct me if I'm wrong) and the names of the Witches 5 are exactly like the ones from Tokyopop: Eudial, Mimete, Viluy, Tellu and Cyprine (hopefully Ptilol's name won't be spelled "Petite Roll" either...lol) And Kaorinite is spelled "Kaolinte". None of the pages seem to be scrambled and none of the ink seems to be messy like with issues of volume 5. Other than that, there's not much else to say about this manga, other than its the start of the best story arc from the anime.
Also, if you all haven't heard the news released last Friday, Sailor Moon is going to be made into a new anime by the summer of 2013! If you google it, you'll find out more information, but that news alone is enough for us moonie fans to go crazy!! Since its Sailor Moon's 20th anniversary, it was said they'd also make it a worldwide release, so us USA fans won't be disappointed. The end.
As for the Infinity arc? What can I say? It's the best arc in the manga (although my personal favorite has yet to come). One thing I can say about these new editions is that I think they are better looking than the Japanese ones. The books are a bit bigger and the glossy covers really make the art stand out. There are more of Takeuchi-sensei's beautiful illustrations in the first couple of pages as well, such as a gorgeous picture of all of the senshi, and another really nice one of the Inners, Pluto, Chibiusa, Tuxedo Kamen and the cats. It's just a shame that they've been leaving out the little comics at the back of the editions, but oh well, there are places online where you can read those.
I've been fortunate to have not gotten any copies that that have been smudged or have had pages missing (but then again I've been buying my copies from the local bookstore, so that may be why). This copy is no different.
Volume 6 of Kodansha's re-release of the Sailor Moon manga in English looks great. The cover image really pops and all of the smudging issues that were present in volume 5 appear to be gone which is a great improvement.
Naoko Takeuchi's artwork also seems to take a leap forward with this volume with a certain freshness to the character designs, poses and action that I never really noticed in previous volumes. This volume is a great example of how her style evolved over the course of the series and is a great taste of some of the awesome artwork that's to come in later volumes.
This volume begins the Infinity Arc of the manga which corresponds to the third season of the Sailor Moon anime, Sailor Moon S and introduces the reader to the fan favourite characters Sailor Uranus, Neptune and Hotaru (soon to be Sailor Saturn).
While previous volumes have had issues with story pacing and character face time, this arc also marks an improvment in Naoko Takuechi's story telling with a great balance being struck with action, new character introduction and existing character development. A great example of this improvement is the chapter where the girls take a trip to a mountain resort. Not only does this gives us some Sailor Mars time, but Sailor Jupiter also gets to show off the action side of her personality while Sailor Moon is put in a very compromising situation all while the mystery of the Death Busters is revealed little by little and the characters of Sailor Uranus and Neptune grow more and more.Read more ›
