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.
So, I recollected all of the new ones, and I love them. Plus, Jupiter is my homegirl. Great translation, only qualm I had was the last few pages of the final book, the original translation was much better.
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.
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?Read more ›

Gorgeous artwork throughout, especially the color pages. Ends on a cliffhanger (they all do) so I'm so impatient for vol.5 to arrive in the mail.Published 17 months ago by Brynnlux
