At the bottom of the character page, I believe it says "A friend or foe???"

That's also more natural then 2011's "Ally or enemy???"

Slag yes! Things are looking up for this translation! Now if they could just switch "Guardian" back to "Soldier" it'd be near-perfect.[/nonseriouswishfulthinking] :P

Am I the only one who hopes they use Diamond, Emerald, etc for the Black Moon clan? I always felt it just sounds and feels much better than Demand, Safir, etc

That's not their names, though. You might as well also want Rubeus to be "Ruby" to fit that trend.

Yeah. I mean, I don't care for Demand, Saphir, or Esmeraud myself because they're a little ~fussy~ if you know what I mean, but they're what Naoko intended and a proper translation needs to reflect authorial intent, not make stylistic changes just because.

Perfect Edition - English Release confirmed

I'm kinda confused since there is no topic referring to that, or I just missed it (sorry if that's the case).
Starting January 2018, the so far Japan exclusive Perfect Edition of the Sailor Moon Manga will be released as the so called Eternal Edition (preorders are up on Amazon i.e.) with the second volume targeted for the end of May.

Any thoughts on that?

Thanks for merging!

I don't know how to feel about these 4 months between these releases. If this is a sign for the planned release shedule, the last volume will be released in 2021 (or even 2022 if Sailor V will follow up).

Yeah, on the one hand hopefully the lengthy gaps between releases means they're spending more time on editing this release, but on the other hand, it'll take way too long for them to finish releasing it...

I really hope the covers will look better in person because they look really bad with the text arranged the way it is...

Hopefully this is a sign they are taking their time to give it a high quality translation that will be worth our money but it's silly for them to take this long just for a re-release.

I think it's the shadow in the text that makes it out too much against the lighter background. Might have been better with a glow instead. Here's what I came up with after messing about in photoshop.

Has anyone picked up the first volume yet? It's on my wishlist but I haven't pulled the trigger yet.
I gave in last week and preordered from the book depository. I'm not proud as I was going to wait for a price drop.
