I translated the Sailor Stars pop-up book and posted a video of it since mere photos wouldn't have done it justice. (Though my camera quality/filming skills also don't quite do it justice either ^_^')


PAGE 1.
Usagi and her friends sat on a bench at school with the super famous pop stars who had just enrolled there, making a huge fuss over them.
"Wow, oh, wow! I can't believe it! The Three Lights are in the same class as me!" Usagi said, becoming far too excited.
Meanwhile, Sailor Iron Mouse had been keeping on eye on Usagi and the others, waiting for the chance to fulfill Galaxia's ambitions.

PAGE 2.
Suddenly, Usagi and her friends were engulfed in fog.
"Guh-guh-guts!"
Sailor Guts and Sailor Buri swooped down on them.
"Kyaa! Who are you? Whoever you are, I won't forgive you!"
"Usagi: transform!"

PAGE 3.
"MOON ETERNAL MAKE UP!"
"I'm the sailor-suited pretty soldier of love and justice, Sailor Moon! In the name of the moon, I'll punish you!"
"Penetrating the darkness of night..."
"Freely falling through the atmosphere..."
"The three sacred shooting stars..."
"Sailor Star Maker!"
"Sailor Star Healer!"
"Sailor Star Fighter!"
"The Sailor Starlights are here!"

PAGE 4.
"Gahhhh!"
"Waaahh!"
The Sailor Starlights' finishing moves defeated Sailor Guts and Sailor Buri all too easily.
"Wow! That was so cool!"
Once again, new and powerful Sailor Soldiers have appeared.

<The End>


Observations:

1. Why are Uranus and Neptune on the cover when they're not in the story?
2. Who's Sailor Iron Mouse? Who's Galaxia? What are her ambitions? Hope you watched the anime, because this book sure isn't gonna explain anything!
3. Sailor Guts and Sailor Buri are apparently actual monsters, not humans turned into monsters, given that the Starlights straight up kill them while Usagi watches in awe.

I'm not sure if they did more pop-up books for Stars, but I have one of the R ones, one of the S ones, and the first two SuperS ones, so I'll be sharing those soon. :)

Here's the first SuperS pop-up book:


PAGE 1.
Usagi and her friends were having fun talking and eating delicious sweets in the park.
"Usagi! You're gonna get fat from eating so much!"
"Jeez... Stop telling me what to do."
Usagi and her friends are always such lively girls.
(By the way, Chibiusa was drawing a pretty picture.)
But meanwhile, a terrifying enemy was plotting to conquer the Earth.

PAGE 2.
"MOON CRISIS MAKE UP!"
Usagi transformed into Super Sailor Moon, and Chibiusa transformed into Super Sailor Chibi Moon.
"Bad guys, beware! I'm the sailor-suited pretty soldier of love and justice, Sailor Moon! In the name of the moon, I'll punish you! Chibi Moon, let's go!"
"OK!"

PAGE 3.
Tiger's Eye and Fisheye's puppets, Karakuriko and Kyokubadanko, got into a terrible battle with the Sailor Soldiers.
"Please, grant me power," Chibiusa prayed.
Right at that moment, Pegasus materialized in a blinding show of dazzling light.
Thanks to the mysterious power of Pegasus, Super Sailor Moon received a new finishing move, which she then unleashed.

PAGE 4.
"MOON GORGEOUS MEDITATION!"
Thanks to Sailor Moon and Chibi Moon's new finishing move, Tiger's Eye and the others vanished into thin air.
Everyone was amazed at the arrival of Pegasus.
"Chibi Moon, this is a secret between me and you."
With that, Pegasus took to the sky.
Please cheer on the powered-up Sailor Moon and her fellow Soldiers.

<The End>


Observations:

This is obviously meant to be the start of the SuperS/Dream arc, but Diana is already present and apparently Chibiusa has already met Pegasus off-screen? The text at the end is kind of ambiguous: it sort of makes it sound like the Amazon Trio were also defeated, but as they weren't (as evidenced by the next pop-up book), this leads me to believe Karakuriko and Kyokubadanko also weren't defeated, but merely forced to retreat with the Trio back to their base.
