A collection of seven off the wall and funny short stories of Sailor Moon none of which are actually about Sailor Moon herself, but her Guardian friends.First off there s Chibi Usa s Picture Diary

Sailor Moon herself, but her Guardian friends.First off there s Chibi Usa s Picture Diary Beware the Transfer Student About Chibiusa s first days at school, her classmates, and vampires Sailor Moon and Sailor Venus are idols for Chibiusa as well as for the rest of the kids They show up to defeat a vampire in a few panels Cute art, standard story for little uns, and BTW, I didn t know vampires liked flowers.The second story is called, Chibi Usa s Picture Diary Beware of Tanabata , revolving around the Chinese legend of Tanabata of Shokujo and Kengyu Haruka and Michiru make a cute cameo appearance, Mamoru is an idiot, the cats roles diminish as time goes on, and there s straw feminism mixed with stereotyped assumptions about men as well Plus, like with the Codename Sailor V manga, there s the implication that only young, slim, pretty girls can be happy because they ll have handsome men in their lives I wouldn t call this a subversion or deconstruction of an old legend when it sorely relies on gender stereotypes to get its point across.Third is Chibi Usa s Picture Diary Beware of Cavities A typical monster of the week story about fearing dentists Add in a rather weak healthy eating message and the job s done no insight to be found here At least Sailor Moon and Sailor Venus share in a battle again with Chibiusa thank heaven this is her last Picture Diary entry she s had enough of the spotlight And wow these stories are excessively boisterous I d even call the artwork for the comedy scenes an eyesore.Now onto the Exam Battle Stories exactly what it says on the tin The Inner Sailor Guardians are at their high school entrance examination period Ridiculous evil spirits to fight come and go, too In The Melancholy of Mako Chan , we learnabout everyone s favourite vigorous and feminine big sister Guardian, Makoto Kino Sailor Jupiter, as she procrastinates studying to go bargain hunting for pretty things, to cook, clean, and drink tea during the girls study groups Ami Chan s First Love Ami Mizuno Sailor Mercury studies hard nearly all the time, and contrary to her usual kind nature, where exams are concerned she is tough on her friends to study as well She can understand and solve any and every problem Except for love letters, which make her break out in hives In this story, she obsessively competes against a rival who keeps getting the same perfect score as her in mock exam results, to the point where she might be falling in love with someone she only knows by pen name Of course Ami s ideal man would be Albert Einstein, and with so much emphasis on her being extremely intelligent 300 IQ , why would she choose her own exam board pen name to be Mercury Isn t that a dead giveaway of her secret identity Like if Clark Kent were to submit a story to the Daily Planet under the name, Supes Or if Bruce Wayne ran a business called, Bat Management But aside from that, this is a great Ami centered story She is drawn with such an array of expressions it s both funny and charming, and boy is she competitive My favourite line, from Minako, is, Rival equals enemy, eh I think I ll stop trying to improve my grades, then, since I don t wanna get killed by Ami Chan Umino appears Even Usagi remarks that she forgot about his existence in the past year Rei s and Minako s Girls School Battle An instant favourite if you re a Rei Minako fan and consider the pairing to be canon, or you think it should be They always look the perfect match when drawn together We delve into the hyperactive, boy crazy, superficial mind of one Minako Aino Sailor Venus, and what she thinks of each of her friends, including her exact opposite, Rei Hino Sailor Mars Despite being jealous of Rei, Minako does admire herrefined friend This could be interpreted as their own special love story about a love hate relationship between two teenage girls growing up into high school age, with new, wider experiences ahead of them.The seventh and fortunately the last story is, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Side Story The Secret Hammer Price Hall It is full of valley girl speak Oh joy I hate this sexist stereotype, its overuse in the media in the 1990s early 2000s, and how it typically has vapid Barbie clones effortlessly butcher the English language merely by opening their mouths In this case it s most bizarre because the two valley girls are meant to be speaking Japanese They are called Ganguro girls here Culture sharing Approbation My eye twitches just reading the horrendous dialogue, even if it is parody and I don t blame the translator for the interpretation One other thing I do not care about brands, and I never have Why would Chibiusa be friends with such airheads in the first place At least Hotaru Tomoe is at hand in her part as the straight man she is my hero in this While there are some genuinely funny moments Chubster Mask made me laugh out loud, and the self aware Sailor Moon laments her lack of presence in these stories, despite being the main character it is obnoxious and messy overall There s too many grown men fetishizing young girls, and apparently Sailor Moon is a franchise in its own universe, with its own cosplay, manga and anime Whatever, clearly it s not meant to be taken seriously, just like the other stories And whenever an enemy shows up, why do the Sailor Guardians keep transforming from their civilian identities in public, in front of everyone Another thing, isn t the cover of this volume the cutest, most precious thing ever Takeuchi san s art continues to amaze me.My final Sailor Moon manga review is coming up with the second short stories volume, containing, in my opinion, much better andsophisticated storytelling the best the franchise has to offer.Final Score 3.5 5 Some of them were really cute and others were just super eh Wasn t feeling it too much The art is still spectacular I think I get why Kodansha decided to publish all of the Sailor Moon shorts together in two volumes, instead of scattered through the main story as they d originally been But it certainly doesn t do them any favors Reading an entire volume of nothing but side stories is draining By the last story, I was sick of them All I can say is to avoid reading the entire volume in one go. There s no time to waste on dying Let s tackle these problems head on and solve them 4.75 sailor stars it s totally blissful to be back in this world and with these characters getting to seeof the characters other than sailor moon is amazing ( READ KINDLE ) ♧ 美少女戦士セーラームーンショートストーリーズ 1 [Bishōjo Senshi Sailor Moon Short Stories 1] ☸ KC This was fun but not really anything necessary to read unless you re really into sailor moon like I am. A really fun collection of stories I know the anime made episodes out of a couple of them at least, so that was fun. Well, this was absolutely horrible I cannot believe that the intended age group is teenaged girls On top of that, I cannot believe that I read and watched sailor moon as a 14 year old No wonder I was so fatphobic and had a kind of fetish of being with older guys, plus my eating disorders I m not blaming it all on sailor moon, I m just saying sailor moon was part of the problem and did not help solve it Number 1, the fatphobia and issues with body image, and encouraging eating disorders http Well, this was absolutely horrible I cannot believe that the intended age group is teenaged girls On top of that, I cannot believe that I read and watched sailor moon as a 14 year old No wonder I was so fatphobic and had a kind of fetish of being with older guys, plus my eating disorders I m not blaming it all on sailor moon, I m just saying sailor moon was part of the problem and did not help solve it Number 1, the fatphobia and issues with body image, and encouraging eating disorders 2, the pedophilia these two images, the characters are grade school girls and yet Naoko Takeuchi has no problem with sexualizing them In one of the images, they transform and say that they are grade school cosplayers It can be seen that a man has blood coming out of his nose, as a response to this In anime and manga that means the man is having an erection This is disgusting And in the other, the girls panties are showing and tuxedo mask, a roughly 18 year old man dating a 14 year old girl, is looking at their panties This is absolutely revolting I just can t I know I have already said this but I can t say it enough Naoko Takeuchi apparently has some sort of pedophilic fetish Mamoro is 18 who dates Usagi, 14 Helios pegasus is obviously a grown man, dating chibi usa I don t care if she is 902 years old it is clear that she has never matured and that is why she looks and acts like a 6 year old I m utterly disgusted and will not continue with the short stories series I m gonna consume all Sailor Moon stories out there These are just a bunch of fun short stories that take place in the Sailor Moon universe They re all hilarious and wholesome
