Sailor Moon and Sailor V announced for USA release
I normally don't do news notes like this, but this one is so big that it deserves a little blub.
Anime News Network is reporting that Sailor Moon 2nd edition and Sailor V will be getting a USA release starting this September. If you don't remember from my blog posting back in January 27th, I pointed out that Sailor Moon's chances of a new USA release increased quite a bit because Kodansha is publishing their own manga. I also said that the manga is the far superior version of the storyline that is much darker and more well-developed.
For those of you who don't know, sailor moon was the manga series that started the magical girl genre. It is about Sailor Moon and her adventures to fight evil, right the wrongs of the past, and gain new friends along the way. It has several story arcs and a wonderful cast of characters. Codename Sailor V is about the adventures (or misadventures) of Sailor Venus when she worked by herself. Sailor V actually came before Sailor Moon and was its prequel, but it actually ended a couple of months after Sailor Moon.
If you haven't experienced the amazing experience called Sailor Moon, do yourself a favor and buy the USA release of it. Look forward to my extensive reviews of Kodansha USA's release of Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon and Codename Sailor V.
