The novelizations were announced as only covering the DK arc from the beginning. I suspect had sales been strong they would have continued, but I feel like they probably flopped. Last I checked each book only had two or three reviews on Amazon JP.

And a lot of Eternal Editions are being released right now, I'm sure they plan to hold the coloured ones at least until all other releases are finished.
Oh definitely. They will certainly hope people will buy both. Kind of like how everytime Lord of the Rings is re-released they wait for everyone to buy them before announcing the extended editions, so everyone ends up buying both. They do it every time lol

Everyone is amazed that Ami is wearing a jumper/sweater under her sailor collar ... have we forgotten about Crystal?! (laughs)



Come to think of it I'm suprised they didn't make her sweater blue.

I like the sweater, it suits Ami!

Now I finished reading the first 2 volumes and oh my, how pleased I am. I know some people don't like the covers and find the Dark Kingdom panels lame, but overall we are getting it good. I did my research checking other full color digital editions and compared to them this one really stands out. Most of them look too smooth, gradienty and fake, while the team on here really tried to give the brush feel and imitate hand work really well. Nothing feels like cheap photoshop coloring and I cannot wait for volume 3, whenever it comes out. In my book they made a wonderful job and I hope this edition goes well and sells well. I mean it is laughably cheap for what it is and I hope people support it, so we can get Sailor Venus as well. Thank you Kodansha. This is THE anniversary project we deserved.

You're blocked from the SM twitter account?
I can access the account but I can't find that tweet. Can't see any tweets from the 26th.
No, I was not blocked from the account but the tweet about color manga was hidden from me.
Maybe it's hidden from all people from North America???

I love this thread about Princess Serenity’s choice of hair color:

In my head at this moment Usagi never fully turned into the princess. I mean sh was Usagi with the princes gown and aura, but the manga itself stated her body gradually started changing later on making her physically resemble the princess more. So I find no problem with the hair color.

I also like the idea that Usagi’s DNA is not exactly the same as Princess Serenity’s from Silver Millennium. After all, they have different parents.
