Sailor Moon Eternal Edition Volume 3 Comparison (Kodansha vs Kodansha!)

The last few months have brought many changes to my life. A lot of things have happened, both good and bad, but I'm ready to get back into this and catch up before the next release. I'm sorry to everyone for the long wait.

So...the Sailor Moon manga is now available digitally for the first time in English. While I'm in no hurry to give up my physical copies, this is fantastic news for those who don't have the shelf space or the money. I can also see many double dipping for the convenience of being able to read the eternal editions on the go. One thing I've noticed while casually flipping through the preview pages for the other languages is they all seem to have localised honorifics whilst the English version is the only to maintain the Japanese ones. For the languages that used the same alphabet at least. As someone who would've preferred localised honorifics in the English edition, I can help but feel a little envious.

Sailor Moon Eternal Edition Volume 2 Comparison (Kodansha vs Kodansha?)

Well, everyone, here we are again. First of all, I would like to apologize for how late this comparison ended up being, but while last time, it took me a couple of weeks to get my copy of the manga that ultimately ended being to my benefit as several interviews were released during that time giving tidbits of information that I was able to include in my look through. That and other purple dragon related distractions led to me choosing to wait for a couple of weeks, which unfortunately ballooned into a couple of months. Christmas, family gatherings and my own lethargic tendencies also played a part and for that, I'm sorry. I'm definitely going to try to be more prompt with volume three. Realizing it has the same release date as Kingdom Hearts 3 though, that may prove to be a struggle. Fingers crossed.
