PostSubject: New Manga Releases and Scout Guides   6th February 2013, 11:49 am

There are two things I want to talk about in this thread. The first one being why doesn't Tuxedo Mask get his own manga cover along with the other senshi? Chibi Chibi is cute but her role wasn't nearly as big as Tuxedo Masks. I think he should have gotten his own cover!!! The second thing I wanted to mention is I noticed on Amazon the other day that the overly priced scout guides have been knocked down immensely in price! The sailor Venus one was about $30 last time I checked and is now around $4!? Why would that be happening unless Kodnsha plans on rereleasing those too? I hope they also release the other minor ones with the villains and outer senshi they skipped.

I had a small preview of the Sailor Venus scout guide as a kid. It showed pictures of her in London as Sailor V. I was confused as a kid seeing how Dic skipped Minako's life as Sailor V episode.

Did Japan have a scout guide or was that was something Dic did?

Yes they did have them! I have all of the scout guides but I only had Jupiter and moon until I found a lot of the other 3 cheap on eBay.

(Thanks Mayo! :3)

Yeah I have to agree with Mayo about why Mamo didn't get his own cover. The series is really about that the girls than him.

I think the thing about putting Mamo on the cover by himself is that people who don't know what Sailor Moon is might think it's a series for boys. It just doesn't attract the right audience's eye as much as the girls do, I guess.

Not really, considering when he appears on the cover. If the previous covers featured the girls, and then he's on a cover, there's hardly no way to think the series is for boys. Especially if the cover is of him, in a tuxedo, holding a rose. Most series for boys would depict the main character holding swords, or having some cocky grin. If anything, they would mistaken it as a Yaoi/BL manga because he's such a pretty boy. 8D

But yeah, generally believe he's not on a cover without Usagi cause it's a magical girl series. (I have one where it's him and Serenity on the cover. )

It is! I love it myself mostly also the details that went into both of them. If I were Naoko I would be insane at this point. x3

I guess I just mean like if someone saw that specific volume by itself it wouldn't be as attractive to young girls and they'd be less likely to be like, "That looks so cute, I wonder what that is!" and look further into the series. *By the way, this is not what I personally think, I love me some Mamo, but I'm just attempting to explain what they might have took into account :p*

Okay now that I think about it, I'm sure we've all noticed the manga prices go down as well. Maybe since both the scout guides and mangas are going down, it's due to something completely different.

Boy howdy did those Scout guides have issues...

I own 3: Moon, Mercury, and Jupiter (I read Venus though a library). Those things are just riddled with errors, and inconsistencies. It really didn't help the fact that they where translating them from Japanese senshi fanbooks, and left in alot of things that where cut/changed in the dub version, thus confusing dubbies in the process. Even as a kid I noticed all the problems those things had. I should make a list of all of the errors in those books...anyone interested? Still, they are fun to look at.

I've noticed the price reduction too for both those and the original manga. I think its because at the time, those where the only Sailor Moon books available, and people really wanted them, even if they where really crappy translations with poor binding (Tokyopop's print of manga had is own share of issues >< ). Now that better quality Sailor Moon books are being printed, the demand for them is much lower than before.

Works for me, as I really want Venus and Mars to complete my collection, but I wasn't going to spend over $30 for a copy. Its not worth it. I already feel ripped off paying $13 a book new.

I agree with the errors part, but I enjoyed the screen shots from each episode it provided. The sailor moon was my favorite one.

The nice thing about the Sailor Moon one is that it had the least amount of errors. Its like they finally manged to get their act somewhat together by the time the final book rolled around.

I also find it the most nostalgic one of the 3, as I got that one along with a bunch of other awsome Sailor Moon/anime books for my birthday one year....the same year my mom gag gift me a boom and dustpan set the day before, and killed my enthusiasm for opening any gifts at first on my actual b-day. LOL.

I Sort of wish that on thr 12th volume, instead of Usagi, Chibiusa, and ChibiChibi, It would have been Usagi, Chibiusa and Mamoru, since that would be the royal family all together. and there would be no way at that point to think it's a series aimed toward boys.

I always thought if a girl saw Tuxedo Mask on the cover they'd grow hearts in their eyes and want to read more.

I know for a fact they had them in Germany.

Over there they took some pages and artwork from the same Scout guides that where published in Japan and in the US, translated/edited them, and added in some new material like art crafts and such. They seem pretty short and they cut alot out. Once they ran out of material for the 5 inner senshi from those guidebooks, they didn't stop there. They did the outers, villains, and other important characters like Pegasus/Helios. I have scans from some of those books somewhere. I kinda wish I knew German, as I'm quite curious to know what short of info they have.

EDIT
And because I have a feeling you're going to ask....yes swifty, I do happen to have the one for the Dark Kingdom. Wink
