I just got the first volume of the new Eternal Manga and I love this new translation! I also love how much bigger the volume is! Kodansha really went all out this time!

You can order them online from various sites (Amazon, Walmart, Target, Barnes & Noble, etc) and you could probably find them or request them from local bookstores.

Thank you. This volume was a pleasure to review and hope to do the others going forward.

I'm gonna wanna hear their reasons for keeping "Tsuki" untranslated.
Probably the same reason Act 6 was titled "Tuxedo Kamen: Tuxedo Mask". The reason for that was to mimic the format for the other chapter titles and the Japanese kanzenban had "Tuxedo Mask" written in English too.

I am reading this now (Japanese version) and enjoying every second of it. Like Usagi I find Kanji difficult sometimes so the larger book size helps and the visuals are stunning.

After seeing the Sailor Moon puns comics (Minako makes cringy moon-related jokes) I was pleasantly surprised to see Jupiter saying "Is this the real rabbit of the moon?" to Usagi with Minako looking exasperated.

(I buy these at Kinokuniya in Sydney but entire sets are appearing online in Mercari jp. Speaking of Mercari check out this loot $750 of Sailor Moon stuff!)

WOW!!! Those digital files from the color pages looks stunning!, you can clearly see the pencil traces of Naoko.
Do you know if they sent some promo images in HQ like those but from Volume 1?
Hope someday they release the manga in digital form.

BTW, Do you think Kodansha will release a boxset for this?? I want a box to keep them, but I don't want to rebuy it. Should I wait?

Poor Jupiter, lost to the margins of the page. Also not a fan of the awful way they translated that chapter title.
I just picked up that volume a few days ago. The title was the only thing that bothered me. I think I can actually see Jupiter in my book though.

But if the title is one of the few things wrong, I'm happy. Not a fan of the honorifics, but at least the dialogue sounds natural.
