"With its whimsical sense of fashion, thrilling adventure and complex backstory, Sailor Moon was like little else young girls had ever before seen on television, and miles above anything American animators were offering them. The anime led to interest in the manga, which in turn became the sort of success that made the bookstore market sit up and take notice. Scratch a modern-day manga fangirl, and you're likely to find someone who watched Sailor Moon when she was young." -The Comics Journal

Some of the major differences between this and the original English translation is A)The characters have their original names.Which for people who only watched the English dub might be a tad confusing so here's the breakdown for anyone who needs to know. Usagi= Serena, Ami=Amy, Rei is the same Makota= Lita, and Minako= Mina, and Mamoru=Darien Tuxedo Kamen= Tuxedo Mask. B) It's presented in the authentic reading order, right to left, so the art looks better. When it was originally translated, it was presented in the English reading order of left to right.
In terms of the storyline in this volume, we are introduced to our cry baby, but loyal heroine Usagi Tsukino(whose name literally means rabbit of the Moon). She reluctantly becomes the Sailor Soldier of love and justice Sailor Moon. We see her first encounter with evil and her first meeting with Tuxedo Mask. She meets Sailor Mercury and Sailor Mars and she has a few encounters with Mamoru as well.
I know that for many people reading Sailor Moon is about nostalgia and taking a trip down memory lane but I think it's good for children who are a bit young to remember Sailor Moon in its hay day because if it weren't for manga and anime like Sailor Moon there wouldn't be dedicated manga sections in every bookstore. I recommend it for Sailor Soldiers of all ages.
If you were late to jump on the Sailor Moon wagon, this is your chance to finally own it.
If you were a fan from the beginning, and own all of the first print, this is your chance to read it as it should have been read, and in a much higher quality than the Pocketzine Tokyopop version. The binding will not break as easily. You can read this copy for years without it falling apart!
If you are new and are trying to decide if you should buy this... WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR??? It's freaking Sailor Moon! Buy it now!
I'm very happy with this and cannot wait to get the next volumes!
