Manga Review: Sailor Moon Volume 6

* Review and Summary may contain spoilers from previous books of the series. Read at your own risk * Plot: Boy, oh, boy! This manga seems to be getting better and better with each installment. Before we go any further, I have a confession to make. The Outer Sailor Guardians have never been my favorite. Actually, I am not even 100% sure I have ever completely read or watched their adventures. Sure, I know the overall plot line, but for some reason, I never cared for them the way that I did the Inner Sailor Scouts. But my opinion may […]

Manga Review: Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, Volume 5

* Review and Summary may contain spoilers from previous books of the series. Read at your own risk * Plot: Wow, oh wow! Sailor Moon, Volume 5 was abundant with surprises. First and foremost, I was pleasantly surprised with how the manga handled the dark transformation of Chibi-usa. The Sailor Moon characters are all so good that it borders on tooth-breaking sweet. So, to see them in a different light is always a nice change of pace… except for the daddy issues. Now that is, and probably will be forever more, a plot thread that I can live without. However, these changes […]

Manga Review: Sailor Moon, Volume 4

* Review and Summary may contain spoilers from previous books of the series. Read at your own risk * Plot: Sailor Moon, thus far, has taken readers into the past. Explored the glory that once was the Moon Kingdom. Now with Volume 4, readers are transported… to the future! Although the Dark Moon arc has never been my absolute favorite, I have a soft spot for seeing Usagi and Mamoru of the future. It is a drastic change from the characters that they are now. Plus, when one little secret gets spilled, the look of shock on Usagi and Mamoru’s […]

Manga Review: Sailor Moon, Volume 2

* Review and Summary may contain spoilers from previous books of the series. Read at your own risk *   Plot: In contrast to the first volume, Sailor Moon, Volume 2 was completely shocking. All the sailor scouts have now assembled: Moon, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Venus. With their forces now joined, it is time to take on the bad guys. One of the biggest plot threads that I have been looking forward to, in this arc, is the discovery of the Moon Kingdom and everyone regaining their past memories. And while it occurs in this installment, it was very […]

Manga Review: Sailor Moon, Volume 1

Plot:  Sailor Moon and I go way back. This was the first anime I ever watched. I remember getting up super early very morning for school just so I could watch it. Even years later when I need a good fix, it is right there waiting for me, now in its newly rereleased manga. In the first volume, readers are introduced to Usagi (Serena), Ami, Rei, and Makoto (Mina) and their sailor guardian counterparts: Sailor Moon, Mercury, Mars and Jupiter. Having usually encountered the US version of names, it was a bit strange to make this switch in my head. […]
