    Perfecto como siempre.Trágico y prometedor.A partir de este volumen comienza la parte del argumento que nunca llegue a ver en el anime. Así que es terreno emocionante

    Dang Takeuchi, there ain't no fire. You can space your plot out a bit more. Or at least your drawings, there are some ridiculously busy pages this volume.This volume made me realize one of the strengths of the anime was that it made up stuff to keep the series running longer. The manga is really compressed, with all the episodes the anime had it did a much better job developing the girls friendship. I'll give the manga the superior status when it comes to Usagi and Mamoru's relationship? Takeuchi uses this delicate pretty style when drawing their big scenes that's really effective in portraying romantic swoonery. Also so many little touches and kisses, yes, physical affection, continue giving it to me. Great couple. I maintain the anime did the friend relationships better though, the only one I feel has been written to be particularly interesting so far is Minako and Usagi. Maybe it stems from Takeuchi considering Minako more because she has her own separate title? (view spoiler)[I just think Rei and Ami being snatched up this volume would have been even more emotionally affecting if they'd had more time to be developed. Not that it wasn't, I'm not made of stone and I'm coming in with pre-existing Sailor Moon feelings but still. Could've been better. (hide spoiler)] 3 stars

    1.5/5stars I love Sailor Moon. I watched all of the anime (original one that is). Heck, my dog is named Luna after Luna the cat. But this is a case where anime is far better than the manga (for me at least). I had the same issue with the Cardcaptor Sakura, but in its case the manga was superb and the anime was pretty, but very, very slow going. Anyway. This 3rd volume was a complete mess. It was literally messy and hard to follow. And don’t get me started on the translation - it felt like a child translated it. I also liked that anime handled the plot better, the original manga is much too ... suicidal for my liking. Usagi literally killed herself twice so far because she didn’t want to live without Mamoru. And I’m not about that life. When the anime was made I think that the creators realized that romanticizing suicide for the loved ones was a bad idea, thus they changed it and I prefer it that way a 100%. But that’s just me. That’s probably a reason why I never got on board with the whole Romeo and Juliet thing. Also the manga has none of the humor that I came to love so much in Sailor Moon. And there’s zero bickering between Usagi and Mars, and lets face it - those two were so good at it. There’s also no time spent on their school life and activities and all the scouts just feel bland. It’s all just fighting and more fighting. Much disappointed. My WEBSITEMy INSTAGRAMMy WORDPRESS BLOG

    This is the 3rd volume of the new edition of BSSM mangá series. I love Sailor Moon since I first watched the anime when I was 8-9 years old and when I found out there was a manga, I had to read it. The first time I did was almost 9-10 years ago, through an website who had the english scan )in very low quality, but still) and I loved it instantly. So, when the 10 year anniversary of the anime came around and Naoko Takeuchi finally released the rights to get the new edition of the manga published here in Brazil, I HAD TO BUY THIS BEAUTY BECAUSE OMG THE ARTWORK IS GORGEOUS. AND THERE ARE COLORED PAGES. Plus, even though I remembered most of the story, I needed to refresh some details.I love how darker this is, how much Takeuchi worried about the details - the greek/roman mythology references, the moon rabbit legend, the lost Moon Princess tale, the zodiac inspiration...they are in everything, from the name of the characters, to their personalities, their style, their was all so well though out! - how the plot moves quickly (unlike the anime, that has too many fillers), and how progressive, for it's period, it is.This volume closes the Classic arc and starts the Black Moon arc (or R, in the anime) and because of that it's not one of my favorites. The final battle against the Dark Kingdom and Metallia is amazing and fast paced (but not rushed) and it's one of my favorite battles. The Black Moon arc is the problem. I like the idea of this arc, introducing Crystal Tokyo and some characters that will be of importance later on, but it has the only thing that makes this volume (and the next one as well) lose an entire star: ChibiUsa. THIS ANNOYING, BRATTY LITTLE GIRL MAKES ME WANT TO THROW THE MANGA OUT THE WINDOW. Seriously. Unfortunately, she's a constant in this arc, so I'll have to bear with her.On to volume 5!

    Me encanta como va la historia! no esperaba que empezara con la segunda parte ya en este tomo, pero me gusta que se les está empezando a dar más protagonismo al resto de las chicas.Lo que no deja de sorprenderme es cuánto cambiaron en el anime original.En el comic del final (el de Naoko Hime) hay un spoiler mayúsculo sobre Chibi Usa, si no conocen la historia salteenlo!

    I am not finding this Manga super engaging. I'm pretty bored and it is a tad bit confusing at parts. I have vol 4 & 5 and I will probably attempt to read them soon but if I struggle through those as much as I did this one I will either DNF or I won't continue the series. Kind if disappointed since I LOVED the anime.

    ¡Ya era hora de que retomara Sailor Moon! Pasa que me pasa (valga la redundancia) algo raro... Es el único manga que, cuando dejo de leer, olvido lo que leí. En serio; leo algunas páginas, lo dejo, lo retomo al otro día y ya no me acuerdo qué había leído (JURO QUE LE PRESTO ATENCIÓN Y QUE ME GUSTA). Como no vi Crystal, solo el anime de los 90, no me puedo apoyar en eso para avanzar sin releer... Los dibujos no ayudan, muchas veces me resultan demasiado confusos (antes no había hecho mención a esto porque, al no haber leído más mangas, no sabía si era cosa de este o de todos... Es de este).En fin, todo eso fue para decirles que estaba esperando a que salieran unos cuantos tomos más así podía leerlos de corrido (para leer este tuve que releer los primeros dos... No quiero releer la saga cada vez que salga un nuevo tomo).Me gustó mucho, pero el segundo sigue siendo el mejor (en mi humilde opinión). Me encanta que la trama empiece a avanzar más (aunque haya aparecido Chibiusa... La odio, lo juro) y que los personajes empiecen a tener un poco más de personalidad.Muero por llegar a lo que se corresponde con la tercera temporada, pero para eso falta....

    Me encanto, como siempre ❤El manga dista mucho del anime y eso me gusta porque estoy conociendo una historia nueva y a su vez llena todas las lagunas que había dejado el anime. Apareció Chibiusa y no puedo mas de felicidad. <3

    The feeling that the manga story is a rushed, remixed version of the anime story continues as we move on to Sailor Moon R, which I've only seen a few episodes of. The epic, worlds-shattering battle full of dramatic self-sacrifice, and then reincarnation, that ends the first story arc concludes, and then we immediately move on to the beginning of this new story. New character Chibi-Usa's introduction is weird and half-stupid, and her setting herself up as a cuckoo in Usagi's home by magically hypnotizing Usagi's parents doesn't sit well with me. I know why Chibi-Usa is drawn to Usagi and Mamoru--and there are plenty of tip-offs that make it obvious who she is--but still. I don't care for her at all, either as a character or a plot device, so it's just as well the story doesn't take long in putting more emphasis on the new enemy Black Moon Kingdom, who are kidnapping the guardians one by one.I think Takeuchi's art improved in this volume, although I couldn't tell you exactly how.

    This review is also posted on my blog.(view spoiler)[I remain unsure about how exactly to review these manga volumes, especially now that Sailor Moon Crystal has entirely finished the Black Moon arc and it is only just starting here.It is further proven that Sailor Moon Crystal is an exact replica of the original manga (entirely unlike the 90s anime), give or take a few minor changes - and most of those I didn’t even catch, since it’s been many months since the beginning of the Black Moon arc has passed on the show. But there was one difference that I have to say I liked better - instead of Ami playing Berthier in the chess match, like she did in the show, she completely went on the aggressive and confronted her immediately without even beating around the bush.For the time being I have complete access to all the volumes in this series from the library, so I’m hoping I’ll be able to get to all of them relatively shortly and pass the current point in the show so that I may move onto new content, and maybe be able to write a better review. I don’t exactly watch the show with the intent to review - just to enjoy - so I can’t say I remember what my first impressions were.All I can say, in regards to the content of this specific volume, is - FINALLY CHIBI-USA I KNOW WHERE YOU COME FROM NOW I HAVE BEEN WAITING SO LONG TO LEARN YOUR STORYLINE AND HAVE YOU INTRODUCED PROPERLY AND NOW YOU ARE INTRODUCED AND THE STORYLINE IS JUST STARTING AAAHHH~ ~*cough* Volume four will get picked up tomorrow. I hope I’ll be able to read it soon. :3(hide spoiler)]["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    Sailor Moon Volume 3 finishes up the equivalent of Season 1 of the Sailor Moon anime, and beginning the next arc of the story. In Volume 3 we see the senshi use the Moon Sword for the first time, and a much more tragic telling of the battle against Queen Beryl. As the inner senshi struggle to help Sailor Moon with the battle, Usagi fights to return Mamoru to normal and bring him back to her. As a fan who had mostly only seen the anime, it's wonderful to see more of the bond between Usagi and Mamoru that is often glossed over. Sailor Moon never moves along slowly, and the final battle is no exception to the rule. NOTE: The second arc of the manga is one place where the anime starts to depart from the series, and does not contain the 'Ail & Ann' storyline. The next arc soon begins and we are introduced to Chibi-Usa, and the Black Moon Clan. Peace never lasts however, and things quickly begin to fall apart for the Sailor Senshi.Fans of the the use of the Japanese names will be happy to know that this has followed through to the Black Moon clan, and we see 'Demando' instead of 'Diamond' and 'Chibi-Usa' rather than 'Rini'.I was extremely happy to see the gorgeous color pages at the beginning of the volume, as these are beautifully detailed and painted. In a bit of fan-girl squeeing, I was also happy to see the use of the image showing the inner senshi paired with the four generals as well for a chapter image and use of Mamoru's actual abilities as Prince of the Earth.

    Ein toller Teil! :) Dieser hat mir besonders gut gefallen, da Sailor Moon und Tuxedo Mask jetzt ENDLICH so richtig zueinander gefunden haben und Chibiusa aufgetaucht ist. :D Der Zeichenstil gefällt mir außerdem sehr! Deshalb gibt's 5 von 5 ☆☆☆☆☆. :)

    Versi premium jilid ketiga ini adalah jilid yang membuatku jadi kangen Sailor Moon dan akhirnya memutuskan untuk mengoleksi semua jilidnya. Hahahaha... Konflik Sailor Senshi tachi versus Queen Metalia feat Queen Berryl and the gank bisa diselesaikan dengan memuaskan. Kehangatan hubungan Usagi dan Mamoru terasa kentara. Nyaris nggak ingat kalau Usagi dan Mamoru masih SMP dan SMA karena hubungan mereka terasa begitu dewasa. Mungkin memang orang yang punya ingatan kehidupan masa lalu jadi seperti itu. Hahaha. Kenapa jadi kayak anak indigo?Chibiusa yang pertama kali dicurigai sebagai musuh dimunculkan di chapter pembuka konflik mereka dengan Black Moon. Usagi kembali diuji ketika satu-persatu teman-teman Sailor Senshi-nya diculik musuh tepat di depan matanya. Dimulai dengan Ami dan Rei.Sayangnya penggambaran adegan di Sailor Moon memusingkan. Beberapa adegannya memiliki sistem paneling yang membingungkan terutama ketika berganti seting tempat dan waktu. Paling bingung pas adegan munculnya para Biarawati dengan sabit hitam di dahi mereka yang diakhiri dengan terbakarnya mereka secara tiba-tiba di depan Rei dan temannya (Spontaneous Human Combustion). Ugh...

    I really loved all the pretty transformations in this volume, the new magical powers and crystal things, and the way that Usagi finds strength and bravery from the encouragement of her friends and her love for Tuxedo Mask. I love how the Sailors all band together, willing to give their lives for each other, fighting against evil, and generally being awesome!Chibi-Usa was always a weird character to me. She just never seemed to fit into the story, in my mind. Somehow I don't remember her being introduced this early in the story, but here she is, being all mysterious and bratty.

    With each volume I'm becoming more and more engrossed. Seeing the original story line in the mangas is awesome. Like knowing who Queen Metalia is, and who the four kings of heaven really are. I knew Zoisite was supposed to be male, but not that they were Prince Endymion's guards. I am truly in love with these stories.

    Some spelling errors otherwise a good read :) I think it's terrible that these books have spelling errors!!! There's like no words which should mean that they would be easily proof read. You pay good money for published works so they should be correct! Never the less I'll give it 5 stars! can't wait to read the next one :)

    Picks up where the last volume left off:Queen Beryl is killed pretty easily and quickly by Sailor Venus's sword. The ominous, shapeless devil, Queen Metalia, appears before the Sailors. This “great ruler” aims to absorb the power of the Legendary Silver Crystal and engulf the earth in total darkness. Sailor Moon sacrifices a possessed Tuxedo Mask, and herself. History seems to be repeating itself; and fate is forever on a loop. Moon and Mask become trapped in crystal - and within the void of oblivion, Metalia. But the long and short of it is: The couple are alive, and with the power of love and support Sailor Moon uses the Legendary Silver Crystal - it’s source issuing from her heart - at its fullest to seal away Metalia. Thus she saves the world. The Sailor Soldiers and Endymion's guards help out from afar, and true love's kiss revives our heroine. Usagi is presented with the option of becoming queen of a revived Silver Millennium, but the young princess/schoolgirl chooses to remain on earth and live out her normal life for as long as she can, with those she loves. Plus, the arcade center owner, Furuhata, knows the Sailor Soldiers' secret identities now, not that this comes to anything.End of Arc 1, or the Dark Kingdom Arc.Arc 2 is the Black Moon Arc. Black Moon are members of a rebellion from the new Moon Kingdom of the future on earth, called Crystal Tokyo. Prince Demande, Rubeus, Saphir and the Metalia-lite Wiseman are at the head of operations. Also making her first appearance, literally falling from the sky, is Chibiusa, a cute but annoying little girl with a sick sense of humour who wants the Legendary Silver Crystal from Usagi. Is she involved with Black Moon? And is she setting out to destroy Usagi and Mamoru's love by coming between them? Really stupid thing to do in light of when the brat's true identity is revealed. Anyway, Black Moon kidnap Sailor Mars and Sailor Mercury - cliffhanger! And there's Asanuma, a young student at Mamoru's high school who has a "man crush" on our prestigious male lead.Another great volume, all around (apart from Chibiusa). With the end of an arc and the start of a new turn, the story once again becomes a little light and goofy. Even Mamoru has his less-than-stoic moments. But it's a necessary catharsis, and a good build-up for darker and more dramatic events to come. The artwork is fantastic, flowing and expressive as always. A sci-fi, aliens-vibe is going on too...Sailor Venus is absolutely badass at the end of the Dark Kingdom storyline. So fierce and protective. It's quite a shame she doesn't use her sword in subsequent stories; just the "love-me chain" will do, I guess. Sailor Mars/Rei Hino has a chapter dedicated to her in beginning of the Black Moon arc. Details about her family, hobbies and past times are made known. It also shows how hanging out with Usagi and the gang has made the beautiful shine priestess more slovenly, like a regular teenage girl - quite contrary to her mature, aloof personality! Like Mamoru, there are many layers to Rei's character - it's so much fun to witness! Sailor Mercury/Ami Mizuno receives similar treatment in the next (and last) chapter. It's lovely that we get to know more about these characters and how they live their lives so differently from one another. They remain friends nevertheless. Sailor Jupiter only gets bit parts to do in the volume, but that'll change soon. A huge shout-out to Luna also for demonstrating the extent of her dedication to protect Usagi; and her growing, tearful fondness for the girl.Can't wait to talk about the fourth volume of Sailor Moon's epic adventures in love and justice!Final Score: 5/5

    Ah, the end of the Dark Kingdom arc, and the beginning of the Black Moon Arc. While I thoroughly enjoyed the finale of the Dark Kingdom arc, and I have to say I have a bit of a girl crush on Sailor Venus now, it was choppy. Which surprises me as this is the third addition to the series. Usually meaning story and art panels become smoother. Not choppier. The finale was indeed choppy. If it had been a bit smoother this volume probably would have gotten a higher rating from me. Alas, the chop-chop and then the "villain of the week" comes back. And even they were a tad skippy.That being said, I really-really-really liked the wrap up of the Dark Kingdom arc. The romance between Usagi and Mamoru has hit that beautiful sweet spot. Or as I like to call it, the "ahhhhhh" moment. Combining past lives into a present day romance, tragedy, and by it's own right a happy ending. While it's not the end, clearly, it's a happy one for the story arc. Even better, is that while Usagi and Princess Serenity officially become one, Usagi states it's still her. There is a more mature side of her present and continues to grow, but I still love that she’s still her silly self. Which readers get to see in old-school Princess Serenity. I'm still a weeeee bit bummed that the other characters aren't getting more development. There's some, especially as someone is slowly picking off the Scouts. But it doesn't really make me feel closer to the ladies. Sailor Venus had some amazing page time as the true leader of the Sailor Scout’s group as she does everything in her power to protect the Princess/Queen of the Moon. A-mazing. I can see why Takeuchi created SailorV first, and kept her in the Sailor Moon universe. (Yeah, see my girl crush is shining.)The mini-Usagi, or Usa/Chibiusa, has been a character that made me lose interest in the Anime after she was introduced. (OK, I lied—again—I made an anime reference. Sorry!) Mainly because I found the character even more annoying then the Anime version of Usagi. Chibiusa really hasn't gotten much page time at this point. Instead of seeming like a brat, she comes off as a lost child. One who's lost her parents and clearly needs Sailor Moon's help. Now if only the Scouts could help themselves! If it wasn't for the powerful ending of the Dark Kingdom arc 2/5 would be my solid rating. The new storyline isn't starting out terribly strong and the choppiness isn't helping. There are some moments that I did enjoy in the opening of the Black Moon arc. I just wish things were more . . . fleshed out. Dare I say, more time spent on opening this up. Yep, I'm saying maybe a chapter dedicated to getting to know our characters more and building up the new trouble brewing for our Sailor Scouts!Sexual Content: Kissing. Clean. Maybe a bromance!3/5- Adored it, just a few minor details held it back.Originally reviewed at Book Whispers.

    I just...This series is so well known, and it generally is talked about in a positive light. I really, really wanted to like it.But I couldn't. I read the first two, and the majority of the third volume (this one), and I just had to stop. The plot is predictable and boring, the characters are barely, if at all, distinguishable from one another, and the art, though sometimes beautiful, often annoys me in how busy it is. I felt overwhelmed in many panels, as they seemed cluttered and I didn't know what was going on. The worst part, though, was the writing. This is probably due to the translation, but the writing is horrible. The dialogue doesn't flow and it doesn't seem real, especially for teenagers. Also, every time the light crystal is mentioned, it's name is in quotes, which is like nails on a chalkboard for me.Not to mention, the title of the series in this publication is "Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon?" What? Really? "Pretty Guardian?" Why? It's unnecessary, and sexist.I love reading manga. I've never read a manga and not been able to finish it before, but this one was that bad. I wish I could understand the hype over this series.

    Favorite Scan in volume 3. [Dawww]Volume 3 of Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon [HBIC Sailor Mars is the cover] is the ending of the Dark Kingdom arch and the beginning of the Black Moon arc. We see Usagi come into her own and utilizing all her powers to finally fight the great evil that destroyed ruined both her lives.The Black Moon arc starts with Chibi-Usa [aka Rini aka Trunks] arriving lip first onto earth and integrating herself into Usagi's life. Unfortunately, with her arrival brings a new enemy who is also searching for the Silver Imperium Crystal and start attacking the Sailor Scouts. It is a fairly weak beginning to a really good arc as it is pretty much the exact same "one villain attacks one scout" formula we saw previously. I am looking forward to the rest of the story unfolding and how Usagi deals with this new danger. One notable change that I like in the manga rather than the anime is that Mamoru actually has some powers which makes sense because he is a "Sailor Scout." It makes him more than just a damsel in distress.

    This book has the end of the Queen Beryl arc and the beginning of the Dark Moon story arc, and while the beginning of the Dark Moon arc is not the strongest, it's the electrifying conclusion to Usagi's fight against Metalia is good enough to push this book from a 3 to a 4 star. It's also the start of seeing Usagi's friends get methodologically kidnapped - and yes, I'll be that jerk and ask why not Venus, but I guess she actually served a larger purpose for the story? The art of Usagi in action as Sailor Moon, however, is as gorgeous as ever. Plus, Chibiusa and Luna-P are super cute.
