Review quote

-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

Our customer reviews

I loved this manga! It was really fun getting to read about how and when Sailor V first became a Sailor Scout and getting to see how she adapted to her new life as well as seeing her early missions. This volume also gives the reader a chance to really get to know Mina and better understand her character. I am looking forward to reading the next volume.
