However, all the contents are the same with colored pages in the first few pages, so if you are not picky about paper and the slight difference in printing as an effect of the paper quality, then it is really a nice set with stickers and a lovely storage box. Also, the only other problem I found is the first and last volumes of this set (#1 and #6) have a little dent on the corner cover, probably from the manufacturer inserting the books in the box, and the fact that the paper quality is thinner.
this is part one of a two set bookset. supposedly part two is set to be released late summer 2013. prolly to coincide with the new sailor moon anime.
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!^-^
Story & Art: Volume 7 covers the second part of the Infinity Arc. While I'll try to avoid going into spoilers, it highlights the return of a beloved character, and the rise of new powers, both good and evil. The story starts to get very intense in this volume and a lot of plot and background story revolving around Hotaru and Mugen Academy that was alluded to in Sailor Moon 6 is revealed here. Takeuchi's art is some of the most beautiful in this volume, and as always, there are several color images for the first few pages of the book. The fully-translated preview of Volume 8 is also back at the end of the book.
Translation & Writing: The translation itself doesn't seem to have any serious flaws like in some prior volumes. However, it does have serious typos which could have been avoided with a simple spell-check, or from being carefully read even once before being published. Multiple words in the book are missing spaces, causing two separate words to become one jumble; a "what" gets turned into "whatt", and letters are omitted ("Pease" instead of "Please"), "Sasanqua Camilla" instead of "Sasanqua Camellia", even though it's referred to as the "Christmas Camellia" in the very next panel. (It's a flower, not a Duchess.) What's upsetting about this is the fact that it's been happening since Volume 1 of this new release from Kodansha and very little is apparently being done with regards to quality control. This is especially discouraging since Kodansha is releasing later prints that correct the errors and have plans to release a box-set which presumably will also have these errors fixed. Good that they're fixing their error? Sure. The fact that 7 volumes in to this series, 1 full year after the release of the first volume that they're still releasing a faulty, typo-ridden product, however, is irresponsible and punishes the fans that eagerly await to buy the first release of each volume (and are more or less creating the demand that's resulting in reprints and box-sets) and frankly, is extremely unprofessional of a professional manga company. Many of us were hopeful that after the mostly-accurate and minimal-typo Volume 6 that these kinds of mistakes were no longer going to be an issue, but apparently Kodansha can't be troubled to skim, read, edit or spellcheck their products before sending them out to the printers.
Summary: Great story, great art, great series and you should read and enjoy it. You might, however, consider waiting for a later printing when Kodansha considers getting around to fixing their mistakes.
