Old friends and new enemies lurk in the mysteries surrounding Mugen Academy. The Death Busters crave the Hoste, the human energies, of Sailor Moon and her friends–and they’ll prey on the girls’ dreams and weaknesses to get it! Furthermore, prophetic dreams hint of “talismans” that could awaken a “Deity of Destruction.” Could these things be connected to the guardians’ power? And are the Sailor Senshi capable of murdering the innocent to save the entire world? (from Goodreads)
Since the previous volume, I got into unfamiliar land. As further I go into the manga, the less I remember from the anime, probably because I rewatched the first couple of seasons several times, and I watched the later ones just once. However, from the little I remember, there are several differences to what actually is going on on the manga. So everything is like completely new to me, and that is super entertaining!
A whole new arc opens and seems really promising, since we’re finally introduced to the remaining outer senshis, which I always loved! And even when I know that they’re part of the good guys, I like how everything they say and do seems suspicious to the other senshis, and that, for once, Luna and Artemis seem to have no clue about them! And Saturn hasn’t even woken yet…
I love this cover! Isn’t Chibiusa the cutest?
This volume is the end of Dark Moon’s arc, which was never my favorite but, ironically, meant the introduction of some of my favorite characters. The senshis save the Earth again, of course, and Chibusa is allowed to came back from the future to train as a senshi with the others!
Black Moon is gaining power. They abducted Jupiter too! Sailor Moon, Venus and Tuxedo Mask are trying to figure out where they’re keeping their friends, and eventually Chibiusa helps them to find some answers, unveiling aswell her own story and introducing them to Sailor Pluto, the guardian of time, which means… TIME TRAVELS! Yay? The future doesn’t look promising. Sailor Moon is captured too, and Chibiusa is in great danger.
In this tankoubon, the Dark Kingdom is finally defeated. Of course, it’s not end of the fight for the senshis, because there wouldn’t be another 9 tankoubons to read if it were.
A new and more powerful enemy rises, Black Moon, and Mars and Mercury are abducted!! Meanwhile, a very young girl makes quite a mysterious appearance and everyone is wondering if she’s friend or foe?
Ahhhh… You gotta love Chibiusa 😀
SM#1 was mostly about introducing the senshis and getting to know their enemies. In this new tankoubon things are getting harder. Sailor Venus makes quite an appearance and we get to know Minako. The senshis finally wake-up fully and we learned what happened to the Moon Kingdom and who is Princess Serenity. Serenity and Endymion are finally reunited, just to be separated again, and the silver crystal is found at last! Sadly, the Dark Kingdom is gaining too much power and took Endymion as prisoner. Can’t wait for the next book!
Usagi Tsukino is a normal girl until she meets up with Luna, a talking cat, who tells her that she is Sailor Moon. As Sailor Moon, Usagi must fight evils and enforce justice, in the name of the Moon and the mysterious Moon Princess. She meets other girls destined to be Sailor Senshi (Sailor Scouts), and together, they fight the forces of evil! (from Goodreads)
Moon Prism Power Make Up!
I feel like I’ve been waiting all my life for this (pretty much). The manga is finally being published here in Argentina and as I’m writing this I’m making arrangements to go buy the second tankoubon.
I’m completely biased towards Sailor Moon, so I’m just going to say it’s absolutely awesome.
