Overview

The second collection of short stories actually consists of one long, and two short tales. The first and longest story pays homage to one of the oldest folk tales of Japan, “the Tale of the Bamboo Cutter.” Usagi’s faithful sidekick Luna is saved by and ends up developing a crush on an astrophysicist whose dream of becoming an astronaut has been dashed by heart disease. His life is further complicated when he happens upon a mysterious crystal shard the same night he discovers a new comet. It turns out to be the vehicle of a malevolent power from the far outskirts of the galaxy that hopes to take over Earth. In another story, Rei’s background, and her unrequited feelings for her father’s executive secretary are revealed. The final tale is a total comedy that follows the children of Usagi and her fellow Sailor Guardians, proving that apples do not fall far from their trees!

    Dissapointing

    I am a HUGE fan of sailor moon. I own all 12 volumes of pretty guardian, both volumes of Sailor V and now both volumes of Short Stories. When I got this in the mail today, I was so excited to read it. Unfortunately, my excitement quickly disappeared once I started reading it. This volume is comprised of 3 stories, the first one not so short at approximately 130 pages. It's supposed to be a classic tale of the bamboo cutter, but it just wasn't done well. It's boring and just wasn't interesting. The second tale is about Rei's experience with her father's business partner, but it's just not an interesting backstory. The third and final tale doesn't make sense at all. As I said, I am a huge fan of sailor moon. I really wish I could recommend this, but I just can't. Unless you are a little obsessive compulsive like I am and want to buy it to complete your sailor moon collection, I wouldn't purchase it. It's a shame, because I absolutely loved the first volume of short stories.
