As an insert between two major raw projects, this week I thought I’d share scans of the Sailor Moon art books I own:
- Kodansha’s Ketteiban Sailor Moon Artbook
- Nakayoshi’s Anime Album Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon S Volume 1
- Nakayoshi’s Sailor Moon R Movie Memorial Album
My collection is by no means complete, though I do hope to add more volumes in the future :)
Additionally, I found something by luck: a copy of the ultra-rare novel Atashi no Wagamama wo Kiite, written by Marie Koizumi and illustrated by Sailor Moon’s author, Naoko Takeuchi. I managed to snag the book for $3, even though copies are selling on eBay for $60! I consider this an act of fate, so I have decided to share my fortune with the internet.
Other Stories by Naoko Takeuchi
That’s all for today. Enjoy the super high-res scans! See you on Thursday.
Ah! That artbook is part of the Ketteiban series. Ban, not han. ;D
Thanks for the upload! I bought my R movie memorial album second hand and somebody drew boobs in the back of my copy lol.
Thank you for pointing this typo out, I have gone ahead and fixed the filename, link, and folder name in the archive. I apologize in advance for those people whose downloads I killed in the past 5 minutes. ^^;;; However the file is good now, download away!
Dianne I need you around to correct my awful romanizations. I always make typos!
XD I do too! My problem is song titles. There are so many damn Sailor Moon songs I have to double check if I’m a) spelling it right and b) even referencing the correct song.
Oh my gosh I understand. The musical numbers can be a right headache. >___>
Think one day you’ll try to translate the articles and interesting tidbits? Summaries are probably unnecessary considering the anime…
I am hoping to. I want to collect all the books first and then I’ll work on translating through them. There’s some really awesome information in them that I don’t think has made it online yet! At least not to the English speaking world.
My exact sympathies! (I’m an information nut.)
