Amazon has just delayed the first issue by 3 months, to April 24th! The other two volumes might get new dates, as well. Stay tuned.

To those who pre-ordered it, you will be getting this email soon...

Release date for Eternal Edition of the Manga now April

Some people on a Facebook group I'm apart of received an email after pre ordering their copy of the first volume stating that they will receive the book in late April, as the release date has been changed. Amazon seems to have updated their release date for it to April 24th.

I hope this means they are delaying the product to make further improvements to the translation to give us the best quality translation as possible.

But to make that decision so close to release when they had most of last year?
I think it's more likely to be a mistake made during printing or maybe Kodansha Japan changed their minds about something and they have to go through approvals again. Hopefully nothing's getting pulled this time.

Although I'm not picky about it either way, it would be nice if they were listening to the North American fandom and were delaying the release to remove the honorifics from the translation, but it's probably not likely that's the reason for it.

I'd love that to be the case, but for now, not getting my hopes up. This tweet says they're still being included.

It's the same English logo that was on the Japanese cover. I think it's just the shading that sticks out too much against a cover that's very bright and vibrant. There's also no shading on Naoko Takeuchi's name so it looks very inconsistant. I've said it before, maybe a glow or white outline would be better. Maybe change the font for "eternal edition" to match Naoko's name.



It's going to be in metallic ink so maybe that will make it look better, but maybe gold foil would have looked nicer.

Have they released the Sailor V kanzenban yet? I have really felt like some Sailor V.
Nope, Sailor V kanzenban has not been announced yet. It might depend on the sales of the Sailor Moon ones.

I don’t think the Sailor V kanzenban changed much of anything anyway, but I would double dip just for a more readable translation.
It included all of the color pages, which is enough for me.

I wonder what the issue is? Were further edits to the translation ordered? Is there a financial issue with paying to print the books? Something else? Hopefully there aren't further delays and hopefully they lower the prices. But I'm still optimistic that they'll come out. The bilingual edition was delayed about half a dozen times before it was finally released. The artbook(s) we were promised six years ago, on the other hand.......
