It all begun when Naoko Takeuchi, still another aspiring female manga cartoonist decided to spin out a fairy-tale yarn all about a fun-loving young missy with such wide blue eyes and incredibly long blonde "cowtails" (they're PIGTAILS, okay???) who was chosen by an alien cat named "Luna" to save the world - or at least the mystic princess and a mysterious jewel rumored to hold immense powers hidden somewhere out there in the universe.
Our sweet 14-year-old heroine, Serena (or "Bunny", if you like) had been assigned by her four-legged mentor to protect innocent folks from the evil as well as finding new members for the whole magic-wielding squad with celestic names like "Sailor Moon", "Sailor Mercury", "Sailor Jupiter", and so on forth. However, the goofy kid behaved so irresponsibly like falling asleep during Luna's stern lectures, bumming free lunch off the other kids, and throwing temper tautrums whenever she had to do something unpleasant like attacking the enemy that you just gotta wonder whether the poor kitty had REALLY made a RIGHT choice in the first place???!! Nevertheless, Sailor Moon herself really pulled through as well as showing some real promise in the very end. And what's more, it didn't take very long for the girl to discover all the other Sailors in one place!:)
Girls, you'd just love such dewy-eyed whimsicality, such misty romance, such pretty poses in that swirling pleated skirt and those cute little shoes, such dashing heroes in fancy duds who would SWEEP YOU RIGHT OFF YOUR FEET, and plenty of real humor in this nifty little pocket-sized book (though I admit the artwork itself is a bit awkward in some places) So LET'S JOIN THE WHOLE GANG to ward off the monster mommies, energy-sucking jewelry, brain-washing disks, disappearing buses, even a funny treasure-swiping princess, and so on forth!^-^

I saw all of the anime episodes they show in the US on the Cartoon Network.After that I discovered the manga and found that it is much better.In the manga, Bunny is far less of a crybaby (though not totally lacking) than Serena in the anime.I now own Sailor Moon 1-4 and Sailor Moon Supers 1 and 2.I'm working on getting the others that are out now, but this book is definitely one you must own whether you're a huge Sailor Moon fan, a minor Sailor Moon fan or you just like manga in general.It does add a bit of variety to your manga collection, though.In my opinion, "Cresent Moon Bald-Spotted Kitty" does give Luna's name a bit of spunk, don't you think?I think this book is great.I especially like the little notes Naoko puts into the book.Anyway, the first volume of Sailor Moon is one that is great for almost anyone.(Buy it!)

Format: Paperback
First off, the art in this manga in wonderful. It is very beautiful and capable of potraying the deep emotional thrill ride this story will take its readers. When I first bought this publication, I wasn't a big fan of Sailor Moon. Alas, after this I was hooked. ...The story of a cry-baby girl named Bunny who meets a mysterious cat named Luna..... Luna gives Bunny a beautiful Brooch that upon calling "Moon Prism Power Make-Up" transforms Bunny into the gorgeous soldier protected by the moonlight...Sailor Moon! Afterwards, Bunny has to fight "icky bad guys" to protect the earth. Thus, she embarks on her mission under Luna's guidance, to find the other "Sailor Scouts". Slowly she falls in love with the mysterious Tuxedo Mask... The past and reincarnation begins to reveal itself....This is, once again, a simply enthralling manga! Much better than the anime, so don't judge by that. Read this wonderful story and you'll surely want to buy the rest!

Format: Paperback
If the Sailor Moon anime TV show struck you as a little too reliant on laughable monsters of the day and silly overused gags, than please take a look at the Sailor Moon manga. Takeuchi sensei's artwork is much more beautiful than the anime artwork (although admittedly too detailed to animate). The story itself is significantly different from the anime plot (no romance among the generals for instance). The manga is full of many more nuances and subtle characterizations than the anime as well. After all this is first and foremost Takeuchi sensei's world. Mixx's translation isn't perfect, but it is convenient and much more fluidly readable to have the manga in English. Unfortunately, there are several layout errors. The pages are occasionally cropped so that a letter or two is missing. The decisions on which fonts to use could use some reexamining. In addition, Mixx has sadly fared no better than their peers in the use of translated sound effects. They blend poorly with the artwork and sometimes just sound silly. Even with these flaws, it is wonderful to welcome Sailor Moon to our shores and I encourage all fans of good storytelling, beautiful artwork, and unforgettable characters to give this title a try.

Ok if your into Sailor Moon then you will LOVE the Mixx translation. Now I know I can't read Japaneese and I'm sure most of you can't either and I really don't have time to go looking up translations like some do suggest and I think that that would just ruin the whole experience to have to stop and look up every character. Even if you aren't a Sailor Moon fan but you like Manga and don't know japaneese this series is HIGHLY suggested! I LOVE the first book I think it is one of the best! In the first one you get to meet Bunny better known as Sailor Moon, Tuxedo Mask/Darien Shields then Ami/Mercury, Rei/Mars, and Lita/Jupiter. But DON'T skip around while reading the books, read them in order so you don't ruin any suprises! But most improtantly ENJOY! I think EVERYONE Moonie or not wil LOVE this book!
