Synopsis

Aino Minako was just a normal girl until a talking white cat named Artemis transformed her into the super heroine SailorV! Now Minako's duty is to fight evil, but with already having troubles in her love life and regular interests (not to mention her school work), what's a girl to do with so much responsibility? Everyone's always hearing about SailorV in Takeuchi Naoko's other series, Bishoujo Senshi Sailormoon, so here's her story!

Background

Code Name wa Sailor V was serialized in the RunRun magazine as the Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon manga ran in Nakayoshi, with a much slower release rate than the latter.

The series was published in English by Kodansha Comics USA from September 13, 2011 to November 15, 2011, along with the republishing of the Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon manga.

Code Name wa Sailor V had an OVA adaptation planned, but it never happened; the Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon anime was created instead.

On a night that Neo Nobility was down, I decided to finally get around to reading "Codename: Sailor V" on MangaFox. I finished less than two days later. "Codename: Sailor V" was exactly what I expected it to be.

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 read more

This manga is the prequel to the all-famous franchise. Originally, it was supposed to be only a oneshot but Naoko decided to continue it as “Sailor Moon”.

But is it any good? Is it really worth the read to learn about Sailor Venus’s origins and why she managed to get Artemis?

Well, you won’t really miss much if you don’t. The manga was only supposed to be a oneshot after all, and it shows.

The battles itself are really episodic and really formulaic – Minako nearly falls into a villain’s trap where they’re to get human energy by manipulating means and she defeats them. Artemis tries to motivate read more

I would say that reading a lot of manga is boring and hard to get into, but since I watched Sailor Moon before reading Codename Sailor V, I had Minako's voice already in my head and her mannerisms were the same and really enjoyable for me. I have only read volume 1 so far and it is more story than fighting which I LOVE. Her character is charming and funny just like you'd expect! Great so far. Read this if you want to know Minako's story.

Okay I have a love/hate relationship with this manga. I finished the first two books and can't find the third. First of all amazing artwork in all the book I only did not like one picture (of haruhi in magical girl costume).the are some funny scenes especially the comedic banter between Artemis and minako. I loved the ending to book 1 I read like ten times over I just loved the part with the promise rings! As for storyline each chapter is basically the same evil person steals energy using charm,objects,etc and sailor v defeats them in the end. I especially liked the pet chronicles read more
