Summary from GoodReads:
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!
You guys, this is the first Manga I’ve ever read. For those of you wondering what Manga is, it’s a type of graphic novel from Japan. It’s translated into English, but you read it from right to left, instead of left to right. It was definitely a little confusing for me at first, but I did get the hang of it. I’m going to state my thoughts in bullet form today.
- Reading Sailor Moon made me all nostalgic for my early teen years. I loved the dubbed version and watched it all the time when I would come home from school.
- It’s kind of funny. Usagi is a bit of a cry baby, and perpetually late, and it was fun reading about that.
- I still love Tuxedo Mask. Is it wrong to say he’s totally cute. As anti-feminist as this is going to sound, I loved that he was always saving Sailor Moon.
- Not that Sailor Moon and her scouts didn’t do some saving. Because they totally did 🙂
- Things were a little too convenient, sometimes. For example, that video game that would dispense special tools for the sailor scouts. I mean, what was up with that?
- I love this style of illustrations. I love the long, flowy hair, and the big expressive eyes. And did I mention that Tuxedo Mask was totally cute?
So I definitely enjoyed this graphic novel. Graphic novels still aren’t my favorite way to read a story, but it’s fun and interesting. I think I will read the next volume in this Sailor Moon series. But after Sailor Moon, I don’t think I will be rushing out to read other Manga series.
