Re: Act #5: Makoto, Sailor Jupiter

The greatest weakness of the Manga is that a lot of the people who were significant foes in the anime are basically cannon fodder in the manga.

Re: Act #5: Makoto, Sailor Jupiter

Yeah, I admit that I haven't gotten too far into the manga yet, but it seems like all of the interesting villain underlings are just there to show up and die. Of course this probably means that Tellur, Byriut, Cyprin and Petirol will probably end up being major characters in the manga as the anime did the monster-of-the-week thing to them.

Anyway, I don't recall this showing up previously in the threads and if nothing else it's pretty interesting, even if I didn't care for some parts.

Okay, fair enough. And ouch on her part!:eek:
No kidding. This actually makes me really impressed that she managed to make something even halfway decent.

Yes, that's the thing that bugged me the most while reading it.

At that rate of speed, I'm amazed it looks as decent as it does. (I once did a frantic 10 pages in a day to get an idea off my chest, and they barely look like anything.) Though I realize now I don't know if there are art assistants involved or what.
There are assistants and staff-but you're also probably reading the ten-year anniversary edition that she went back and basically REDREW. That's the version that was recently published in the states, and it's also the version Mrs. Dream used for their scans. If she takes time out at the end of Act 11 to talk about this, then you know it's the reissue.

I really should have asked before, but does anyone have handy, say, a side-by-side comparison? Or just an example of the early art? Because I'm all curious now.

Re: Act #5: Makoto, Sailor Jupiter

I have a handful of Japanese Sailor Moon tankoubon released in 1994 from the mid-to-late series (starting with Act 20), the early Mixx translated releases from 1998, and the first two volumes of the 2011 English rerelease (copyrighted to Takeuchi from 2003). My Photobucket account also sadly won't refresh until a couple days from now!

A quick flipthrough comparison of the Mixx release and the current release doesn't show any real differences, other than the current release being of a much higher reproduction quality and the touch-up for the translated sound effects and stuff is far, far better in the new one. I really ought to get the new release volumes which contains Act 20 and up, to do a proper comparison with my tankoubon, but an initial glance at least doesn't show much of a redraw.

EDIT: Found my first difference, but it's really subtle. When Usagi first transforms when facing the Cram School youma after meeting Ami, the panels with her saying "Moon Prism Power, Make Up" are very slightly redrawn: the "energy ribbons" around her hands are a little different, as is the crystal (and the "lens flare" in the bottom panel). The transformed Sailor Moon in the panel next to those is also very slightly redone, so slight I almost didn't notice at first. The panel with the youma flinging the razor-paper is completely unchanged, as far as I can tell.

I don't think it's nearly as bad as being claimed here.

Luna's face is redrawn, details are added to the senshi uniforms, occasionally extra screentones are added, almost everything else is untouched.

That's about what it looks like to me, too. Thanks for this!

For a moment, I was imagining something like Hergé's redos on the early volumes of Tintin.

Re: Act #5: Makoto, Sailor Jupiter

This is one of the most awesome things I've seen.

The only downside I've found is that the lady that sings towards the middle isn't on the album version.
