This download is of the Nakayoshi March 1996 issue.
Many of Naoko Takeuchi’s works, including Sailor Moon, were serialized by chapter in this monthly publication before being published by Kodansha in book format. These back issues of Nakayoshi are extremely difficult to find due to their age, the fact that the publisher does not allow for direct back issue re-ordering, and their rarity – many collectors in Japan prize these issues, especially when they feature famous artists such as Ms. Takeuchi.
This particular issue features Act 49 of Sailor Moon, as well as chapters from Magic Knights Rayearth and Saint Tail!

Very cool,There seems to be a diffrence to the orig manga,In the shot when the girls give their powers to sailor moon,they are posing,where in the manga,they all have their hands in the air.Awesome! I wonder if there any other cut or changed scenes like these.
Thank you for noting it! I wouldn’t probably notice. Also that pink-to-blue coloring of the pages is really special.
The Nakayoshi edition of Sailor Moon features some pretty radically different art work and some different dialogue. I wish I had the time to make a site dedicated to documenting all the changes. In the meantime, enjoy the quirks you find! Pretty cool, right? :D
