Introduction – Sailor Moon

You already know after I went into Sailor Moon I didn’t actually know what to anticipate. All I knew was that it was a basic Shoujo sequence about magical ladies. I additionally knew that it was fairly in style even amongst a male viewers which was what bought me interested by it within the first place. In order quickly as I noticed a deal on the Everlasting version manga volumes I picked them up and began studying.

And the sequence was actually good proper from chapter one. This sequence was capable of introduce me to the characters and its world in a really seamless means that makes you need to hold studying. When it got here to the artwork I kinda already knew what it was going to seem like due to the period it got here out in. however actually the artwork doesn’t even look dangerous.

Sailor Moon stunned me with how good it was. Like I figured it was going to be fairly good. I imply you don’t grow to be a cultural phenomenon for nothing. However I didn’t understand how good this sequence was going to be. For those who don’t watch the anime then Sailor Moon’s pacing is sort of good. No less than with the manga.

The anime then again which is what introduced this sequence into stardom within the first place is a bit tough across the edges. With a variety of filler in addition to altering sure occasions and character personalities which to me made it a lot tougher to sit down by then the manga.

So when you like me and have by no means skilled this basic shoujo sequence then I like to recommend that you simply learn the manga over the anime as a result of the anime simply doesn’t actually maintain as much as right this moment’s requirements. And if you wish to know if I’ve learn Codename Sailor V then no I’ve not. Sadly I couldn’t choose these volumes up concurrently Sailor Moon so I didn’t get an opportunity to learn them.

However from what I do know the studying order for that sequence is a bit complicated. And it additionally doesn’t appear to be I even have to learn it to take pleasure in Sailor Moon which is nice as a result of I actually didn’t need to have to select extra volumes up earlier than having to learn Sailor Moon.

However with all that being mentioned Sailor Moon is a sequence that I’d say lived as much as the Hype and really for me at the least surpassed the hype due to how good the writing for this sequence truly is. Alright it’s now time to leap into the primary a part of this text.

Sailor Moon Characters

The character writing in Sailor Moon is definitely superb. It’s not something excessive or loopy however it’s superb. The relationships between the Sailor Guardians and Tuxedo Masks are fairly good; they really feel like actual associates who take care of one another which is actually cool. One of many issues that I feel holds this sequence again nevertheless is the villains.

Not one of the villains are all that compelling; they don’t even actually really feel like a risk more often than not. Apart from within the last arc. The construction of most arcs makes it fairly arduous for them to really feel that means as one chapter an enemy is launched and the following they’re defeated. Which makes them not really feel like a risk in any respect.

Generally they defeat the Sailor Guardians and even do another harm however then by the tip of that very same chapter all the pieces is again to regular once more. I want that Sailor Moon would let the second stay a bit longer and provides us a couple of additional chapters of the Sailor Guardians in despair not realizing what to do. Or with their powers taken away like they did within the last arc of the sequence.

That’s my largest criticism with the character writing of Sailor Moon however in addition to all of that it’s fairly good with the relationships. Considering again on it now, one other factor I simply considered that holds the characters again is that their growth all through the sequence is minimal and is at all times tied to Sailor Moon not directly.

I want we might have gotten extra chapters of the opposite Sailor Guardians going out on their very own and dealing with issues like we all know they will do. I nonetheless loved the characters and their personalities lots and it made the sequence actually enjoyable to sit down by and luxuriate in.


The world of Sailor Moon is sort of fascinating. It’s largely simply 90’s Japan however there are additionally a variety of different components to the world that make it fascinating. Just like the Moon Kingdom and different locations like that that don’t truly exist in the true world. The arrange for lots of the distinctive locations can also be form of cool. They inform us lots about who the villains are with out having to enter an excessive amount of element which is nice.

I do want we bought to discover extra of those locations as we actually solely get to briefly see these locations throughout last battles and generally when the enemies are speaking. It might make the arrange lots cooler and make the sequence extra compelling and fascinating to see. However for probably the most half the world of Sailor Moon is sort of cool and makes the sequence fairly enjoyable to sit down by and skim.

Artwork & Paneling

The artwork within the Sailor Moon manga is fairly for its time and it actually nonetheless holds up right this moment. The artwork isn’t the best artwork ever or something however I prefer it and suits the sequence very well. The newer anime I forgot the title of it however it additionally appears to be like actually good in my view. It suits properly with how the sequence feels and will get you invested if you wish to go the anime route.

The paneling within the manga is sweet and helps improve the story telling of the manga and makes the sequence very simple to comply with and skim which I actually like. Sailor Moon does quite a bit proper within the artwork division and makes all the pieces much more enjoyable to learn. So when you have been considering of stepping into Sailor Moon by the manga like I did then you definately positively ought to as a result of the artwork is nice.


You already know Sailor Moon is a very good manga that I like to recommend folks learn at the least to see how far the shojo style has come. However as a result of I additionally assume that the sequence is sort of good. There are after all flaws with the sequence clearly nothing is ideal plus this sequence is sort of outdated so that you see a variety of outdated tropes on this sequence.

However actually when you can look previous all of that stuff then you definately get a very good sequence that is called a basic shoujo sequence for a purpose. So with all of that being mentioned, learn Sailor Moon or watch the newer anime don’t watch the 90’s anime. It’s not nice however yeah that’s the means you must go about it with a purpose to expertise this greatness.
