Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"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

I was so excited when I heard Codename Sailor V was coming to the United States at long last. The translation was excellent and the story line was fun. I highly enjoyed it. It was interesting seeing that they joined up what was three manga into two for America's release. If you're a Sailor Moon fan or just a Magical Girl fan, this is a fabulous series. Lots of great memories came back reading this manga. :D If you're a Sailor Moon fan, be sure to find "Sailor Moon Forever!" on Facebook. A group of fans together, keeping up with the manga and the upcoming remake of the Sailor Moon series!

A great second act for Sailor V. My only complaint is that there was too much expression around each section of the manga when the characters speak which makes it distracting a bit. But overall it was a great read on who sailor v is and how it all connect to the successful sequel series sailor moon.

Sailor Venus is my favorite of the guardians so I was excited that her previous exploits before Sailor Moon are now available in English. I thought the Sailor V manga was fun. I enjoyed the antics of Mina in her hopeless love life while fighting bizarre villains. The downside though, is that these books took me much longer than a normal volume of this size to read even though they were in my native language. I actually read both in spurts over many days. The only reason for this that I can put my finger on is the need for an aggressive proofread. The books unfortunately contain spelling, grammar, and punctuation problems. Even the lettering done was a little inconsistent in spots. Sometimes things like signs or sound effects were translated and other times not. I personally found the translator’s notes to be somewhat lacking especially when it came to food references as well. And then there were a couple of odd choices in the names of characters that I wish were explained too. In the end I think the story did manage to shine through the release issues. Buying the Sailor V manga is a must for those who love Sailor Venus.
