To be honest, I think they dropped this project just as silently as they announced it. I don't believe there will be any more volumes. I hope I'm wrong though!
Well from what I heard they did say the were going to do a full colored version of the entire manga. Now whether that will be just the manga proper and not say the side stories or Codename Sailor V I don't know. I would love if they did the entirety of it including the Side Stories and Sailor V and I certainly hoped that they have not abandoned it or cancelled it especially since this is something that many fans I myself too have wanted especially for the purpose of seeing what many characters in the manga who were never given colored pictures look like in color. Plus I would love to finally resolve the question of between Rei's Crows which one is Phobos and which one is Deimos all though I assume that will also be resolved in the Eternal movies as well.

They have said this is color version of the complete/kanzenban edition, so it will have everything.

^ Though still not necessarily Sailor V. We have to wait and see. At this point, I think Seira Hazuki was right and we're not gonna get any more volumes until the movies come out.

Guys, they in my opinion released the dark kingdom arc as soon as it was finished to have something for the face after the delay of the film. My guess is they plan on releasing full story arcs at once and this is why it takes such a long time. And didn't have anything done in advance beyond what was released. A lot of less popular manga series got full color digital editions, so I highly doubt they will stop releasing it.

I wonder how many people are in charge of this colored edition. :huh: As digital artists, having to work a huge load of images everyday is not a new thing to them.

Keep in mind Naoko might have to approve them herself and the overall quality of the coloring is actually much more detailed compared to other digital color editions I have seen - I am talking about the shading and brushes used that in this case give a more natural look, while other editions are way less intricate.

What I don't like is the skin color. It's way too yellowish, compared with Naoko's art.
