Technically not an art error again, just another thing that kills me every time:

Act 34 begins with everyone in the hospital with Chibusa, who's just been declared dead by a doctor. Everyone's visibly and understandably upset over this, and then the Outers swoop in dressed like this:

The world is in peril, Chibiusa is pretty much dead, but these three still took the time to put on some couture. I can appreciate commitment to serving looks as much as the next guy, but there is a time and a place. Get some awareness. You're in a hospital, visiting a child's death bed; you're not at Paris Fashion Week! :lol:

Maybe they just came from a gala and didn't have time to change. You don't know their lives! :P

Only Pluto's gown is over the top. Neptune and Uranus' outfits are less formal. I wonder which fashion designer Naoko ripped-off this time. :p

*Mistress 9 takes Chibiusa's Silver Crystal*

Setsuna: Hey guys, hate to just rush off, but we've got a fancy gala dinner to get to.
Haruka: Gotta keep our patrons happy!
Michiru: Does this lipstick go with my new shoes?

Haha! You've officially ruined this scene for me.

Nah, actually the manga is sponsored by the fashion brands, hence their various product placements all over it - it's the same thing as those sponsored outfits worn by the Senshi actresses in PGSM. :lol:

I feel like this page from Act 55 is drawn/meant to be read from left to right:


link


I guess that Chibi Chibi's face in the bottom left panel matches up with the first panel of the next page, which would suggest this page is right-to-left/normal, but the placement of the panel of Galaxia flicking Usagi's forehead makes me want to read from left-to-right. I don't know. Maybe I've just gone crazy :googly:

Normally, Eternal Sailor Moon's wings only come up to around her forehead, like in this picture:



But in Act 53, they got HUGE:



There also seems to be a possible continuity era in the Stars arc. In Act 53, we Galaxia arrive at Charon Castle and Sailor Pluto and her Sailor Power Guardian fade away. On the next page, sensing something has happened, Hotaru teleports to Charon Castle:



Yet later, in Act 55, when Eternal Sailor Moon and company arrive at Charon Castle, they see an instant replay of Galaxia obliterating Pluto and Hotaru at the same time:



I guess it's possible that Galaxia hadn't killed Pluto yet when Hotaru teleported there, but then why did Pluto *and* her SPG both fade away?

Maybe they were wearing this already?

Something Naoko and her team loved to do was cut up old magazines, cookbooks, and other things to create text collages to use as background art for the manga.

Unfortunately, for this panel from Act 27, they used text from a 1989 interview Donald Trump did with TIME Magazine:


link


This panel from the Makoto's Melancholy side story also uses text from that same interview:


link

If allowing Donald Trump, in even the tiniest of ways, to be part of the manga doesn't count as an egregious error, I don't know what does :supercry:

ETA: Text from that same interview was also used in this panel from Chapter 9 of the Sailor V manga:
