I think Codename Sailor V is pretty good. Although if i had to improve 1 thing, it would be that i would have to improve the villains because every chapter, they have the same personality. I think that's booring

Great maho shojo

Is an episodic shojo that not pretends too much: a lively girl who fights evil.
Code Name wa: Sailor V does its job well. Minako is a good character, the story is enjoyable and the art is clean and pretty, very shojo.
Minako has common shojo characteristics, like how she isnt good at studying, but has her good points: she is very lively, optimistic and independent.
Sailor Moon is a more mature and longer version. I really recommend this If you are into Sailor Moon, or If you are just looking a great Mahou Shojo.

Sailor V   
Rating: 7.0 / 10.0

Iíve been an avid manga reader for close to 14 years now and yet I have never had any connection to the Sailor Moon universe; When it was shown on TV in Europe I moved to New Zealand and by the time I went back to Europe Sailor Moon was long gone. With that I only got my hands on copies of the Sailor Moon manga series about 20 years after its first release.

Sailor V is a lovely prequel to Sailor Moon. I love when stories have crossovers or when characters make a guest appearance. It was always fun discovering Usagi and the others in the odd panel here and there. I believe the Sailor Moon universe was mainly created for a younger audience. For those who are a bit older it may be more difficult to connect with this story if one, like me, hasnít grown up with it. But nonetheless, as long as you donít take it too serious and pin down everything that doesnít make sense (after all Ė itís a magical girl shoujo mangaÖ they hardly ever make much sense) it can be a very enjoyable read. Minako is a nice lead character who is both feminine and strong and always delivers hilarious scenes. Naoko Takeuchiís artwork is gorgeous. Some years back I didnít appreciate older manga style as much as I do these days but I had to stop on so many pages to admire her line art Ė she always manages to make sure graceful poses for her characters as well as the movement of hair and clothing!

I thought the ending was rather sad despite the overall comedic tone of the manga. Still Ė I thought it was a lovely setup for its transition to the sequel.

P.S.:
I feel lucky to own the older 3 Volume edition as I find the cover art to be so much nicer.
