Naoko Takeuchi’s beloved manga series Sailor Moon is now available on comiXology in four 300-page volumes, with future volumes planned to be released as the series hits print from publisher Kodansha Comics.
“Fans who enjoyed Sailor Moon as children have now grown into full-fledged adults – I am extremely grateful that their love for Sailor Moon continues to this day,” said Fumio Osano, editor of Sailor Moon. “Many people have told me they see the series in a different light now that they’ve re-read it as adults. Takeuchi-sensei started the series in her 20s and drew it into her 30s, so now that the fans who enjoyed it as children and teens are the same age she was, I think they’re making new discoveries.”
Sailor Moon ‘s main character Usagi, incidentally, has her birthday on July 1 — so it’s good timing. This launch marks the first official digital English-language release of the fan-favorite Sailor Moon series and coincides with the debut of digital releases in other languages worldwide, including Japan. Started last September, these definitive Eternal Editions feature all-new cover illustrations by Takeuchi and newly revised translations.
