Story: The story wasn't that bad. It had an environmental message in it, and the romance between Ichigo and Masaya was really sweet. Kish's unrequited love for Ichigo was also done pretty well, especially in the last two books. I nearly cried with Ichigo during book seven when Kish was revealing his feelings. It also has side stories such as Petite Mew Mew where the girls are in kindergarden and Tokyo Black Cat Girl, the prototype for Tokyo Mew Mew.
Art: For the most part, the art was cute and pretty. Males in this looked kind of weird at times, though. I liked when characters got really big heads. It looked funny. (You'd have to see the manga to understand what I mean; I can't describe it properly.)
Character: While the lead character Ichigo is cute, and her love interest, Masaya is sweet, there wasn't enough of the other characters. Ryou gets a bit of a backstory and so does Keiichiro, but the other Mew Mews get none and are pretty much supporting characters. While I haven't watched the whole anime, only 21 out of 52 episodes to be exact, I can say this much: the anime was better for character development with the other Mew Mews.
Enjoyment/Overall: This was a very cute manga, and I would recommend it for those who like cute things and magical girls. It could have been better in some areas, but it was still entertaining. read more

Story: The story, and all five story arcs, were great. My favorite arcs were Black Moon and Stars. The story rather quickly goes from 'pretty girls in uniforms saving the world from aliens' to something much deeper, and that is a great thing.
Art: The art is great as well. I love Naoko Takeuchi's style; it is so flowy and pretty.
Character: Great characters, although, it focused a lot on Usagi, Mamoru and Chibiusa. I know that there were side stories about some of the other characters, but I didn't get to read those since Neo Nobility didn't have them. The Princess Kaguya story that focused on Luna was also great like its anime counterpart, "Sailor Moon S The Movie: Hearts In Ice". I'll give the characters a 10 anyway since the main characters were great.
Enjoyment/Overall: As I said, I loved this manga. It took me a couple of weeks to read since it was eighteen volumes/fifty two acts long, but it was well worth it. I recommend this to any Sailor Moon fan; it's a great read. This gets a ten. read more

Story: Plot wise, the story wasn't special. You know the early filler episodes of Sailor Moon that involved the enemies stealing energy in whatever way they can? That is basically what the entire Sailor V manga was. Although it's not as good as Sailor Moon plot wise, it is funnier. There are a few moments that made me laugh out loud, such as the part where Minako calls Artemis a transvestite because he had a girls' name. My biggest complaint with the story is that most of the manga is filler like, and all of the important stuff is jammed into the last chapter. (Which was a lot longer than the other chapters.)
Art: The art was really good. I absolutely love Naoko Takeuchi's art. It's very pretty.
Character: Minako is one of my favorite Sailor Moon characters, so reading an entire manga dedicated to her was pretty fun. All of the "first loves" that she had were funny, and I found her first impression of what Artemis was telling her more believable than Usagi's with Luna. Speaking of Artemis, he was pretty cool in this too, especially when he was making fun of Mina.
Enjoyment/Overall: This manga was nothing all that special. However, seeing where the inspiration for Sailor Moon came from was rather interesting. It was also cool reading a manga dedicated to Mina. I'll give this a seven. read more

Story: The story was very good. It focused on Luna, rather than Usagi, and it told about her falling in love with a human guy. There could have been a little more about Snow Kaguya (I can't really remember her name; I'm so bad at remembering villain names!) but that's okay with me because I perfer good guys over bad guys anyway.
Art: The art was really pretty and shiny, although not as shiny as that of the SuperS movie. However, it may just have seemed like that because I was watching it full screen so everything was a bit pixelated.
Sound: I absolutely loved the background music. Everything fit the emotion so well. I really liked the song they played while Sailor Moon used Rainbow Moon Heartache. (I think that's the attack name, I can't remember.)
Character: The characters are great, as usual. This was great character development for Luna, and we also get to see Luna's human form. Great new characters were introduced as well.
Enjoyment/Overall: Like I said before, I really liked this movie and it's my favorite of the three Sailor Moon movies. It was very cute. read more

(By the way, the person who uploaded the one I was watching didn't upload the end, and I had to read about it on Wikipedia, so bear with me a bit.)
Story: The story was pretty good. It stays true to typical Sailor Moon plotlines. It was kind of sweet how Fiore wanted to protect Mamoru so much, and it was very sweet how the Inner Senshi stood by Sailor Moon so much. I admit, I got kind of bored in the middle and took a break, but that may be because of my problems with sitting and watching a long thing.
Art: After seeing the SuperS movie, I admit I was kind of disappoitned with the art here, which was nothing spectacular. But there is this one scene that shows the meteor from an angle, and that was pretty cool looking.
Sound: The sound was great, I really noticed the background music, and it was really good.
Character: Of course, all the familiar characters are in this, and they're all great. One of my favorite scenes was the part where Usagi was sleeping, and Chibiusa plugged her nose shut and held her hands on Usagi's mouth. But aside from the usual characters, I didn't like the new character, Fiore, too much. I thought that he was too self pitying. I know that he was possessed by that flower monster (can't remember her name, if she had one) at some point, but I felt that his hatred for Usagi was irrational.
Enjoyment/Overall: As I mentioned before, this wasn't really my favorite. I thought it was kind of boring. However, I can see where other people thought it was good, and maybe if I saw the ending I would think differently. It's not that it was a bad movie, it was just that I wasn't interested. I'll give it a seven overall. read more
Story: Rather than having a really thick plot, "Peach Girl" mostly follows the complications in the love life of the main character, Momo. And believe me, there are LOTS of complications. It can be overdramatic at times though, and a bit unrealistic too. However, the story is quite addicting.
Art: As I mentioned in my review for "Peach Girl: Sae's Story", I really like the art. I think it's because it's more realistic than the art of some of the other mangas I read. I particularly like the shading of the lips. The cover images are nice too, although some of them make Momo look kind of slutty.
Character: This manga has some great characters. Momo makes a good lead character, although her love drama can be wearing, especially in the later volumes where she has to choose between Kiley and Toji. Speaking of them, Kiley is definitely one of my favorite characters. I have found myself laughing out loud at some of his comments numerous times. Sae is an EXCELLENT antagonist, and easily a hatable character, although, she becomes more sympathetic in the later volumes.
Enjoyment/Overall: I loved this manga. It was the first manga that I ever completed because it was so addicting. If you're looking for a good romance drama, you might want to check this out. But if you don't like drama then you might want to stay away from this because this has quite a bit. read more

Story: The story was wasn't bad. Like the other people before me have mentioned, it was kind of cliched with all the talk of sugar and dreams.The pied piper thing was also used a million times before. There were also parts of it that didn't make sense; for instance, there was no real explanation for why the Outers showed up out of nowhere. The part where Usagi was in her dream was also a bit confusing at first, but it's explained shortly after. Anyway, the story wasn't that bad, but it wasn't particularly excellent either.
Art: The art was fabulous. There's no other way to describe it. Everything looked so much nicer than in the series. The thing that stuck out the most to me was how shiny everyone's hair was, especially Chibiusa and Usagi. Chibiusa's hair was also more styled than it is in the series, and looks more like that of the manga; a huge plus.
Sound: I thought the sound was really good. I liked the song that the kids sang in while on the ship -- it was so catchy!
Character: As a Sailor Moon movie, the most familiar characters are naturally in it. The Outer Senshi, with the exception of Saturn, also make an appearence which is nice since they weren't in the SuperS series at all. The new character, Peruru was also pretty cool. I liked him. My problem, however, is with the antagonists. They had absolutely no depth, and there was no real reason why the evil queen (I can't remember her name, sorry) wanted to take over, or why she wanted to make the children dream. (She did say something to Sailor Moon about how if everyone slept and only dreamed of themselves no one would get hurt. Still, it doesn't explain much.)
Enjoyment/Overall: Well, I enjoyed it. I thought it was cute, and I loved the art style. Naturally, this is a movie that Moonies should watch. But if you're not a fan of Chibiusa or cute things in general, then you may not want to watch this. Overall, it's a good movie, and I give it a seven. read more
Story: Like its predecessor, "Sae's Story" was more of a chain of events rather than a thick plot. It mainly follows the love life of Sae, who, despite her good grades, gets held back a year in high school due to skipping classes. We also get to learn more about Sae's past.
Art: The art is great. There is something about Miwa Ueda's art that I really like. The characters are drawn very nicely, and the cover art is great too. (I especially like the cover for volume two!)
Character: Like the art, the characters are also great. Momo and Kiley reappear, although they are mostly background characters. We are treated to a few new characters, such as Kanji, Sae's childhood friend and first love, and two of Sae's short lived boyfriends. I really liked Kanji.
Enjoyment/Overall: As I said before, I had enjoyed this manga. It is a good sequal to "Peach Girl". However, I wish it could have been longer though, because I would have liked to see more happen between Kanji and Sae. Ah well. Overall, it was very good. read more
