Since there are threads dedicated to animation errors in the 90s anime and Crystal, I thought it might be fun to point out, document, and laugh at some of the art mistakes in the manga. I'll start.

First, the infamous panel of Praying Mantis!Sailor Uranus from Act 47:



From Act 8: On the first page (pre title pages), we see Venus drop both of her gloves (for some reason). When next we see her arms clearly, they are gloved. On a later page, she removes one glove (again, for...reasons...) only to be wearing both gloves again in the bottom panel. Venus's gloves: they're as inconsistent as Pluto's backstory, role, color scheme, skintone, and occupation!





From Act 9, Beryl's shield and sword switch hands from one panel to the next:



Unfortunately it's not really apparent in Miss Dream's scan, but when the Inners transform in order to teleport to the Moon in Act 10, Venus appears to be using a transformation pen that matches the other girls'. (If you have a copy of the revised manga, you should be able to see what I'm talking about.) This page was redrawn from the original edition where Minako is clearly using her normal pen.

The Uranus mistake bothers me to no end. It even got left in the reprint. It's very apparent Takeuchi got lazy after R when it came to editing the reprint manga. Eventually all the touch ups were adding noses to characters, haha.

There's a panel in the Dream Arc where Mako-chan randomly has her tiara on. It was fixed in the reprint.

If I were the (creative) translator, the line in the top bubble would've become "WHATEVER HAPPENS TO MY LEFT ARM". :lol:

[EDIT]
[Re: The preceding post] And the bubble in this panel would've become "Tuxedo Mask, I think I'm possessed by the demon from The Exorcist".

This may be off-topic but, I really don't consider Usagi/Sailor Moon to be one of the Inners. I'll save that for another time.
Interesting thing regarding the last picture is why Venus' first transformation pen looking identical to the other three, was it inspired by the 90's anime?
