It’s a normal school day for 8th grader Usagi Tsukino – late for school and rushing out the door. In her hurry, she collides with a stray cat! Usagi’s kind heart forces her to stop and help the cat, but she must face the consequences at school – namely punishment from her strict teacher Ms. Haruna. Usagi’s day takes a turn for the worse when her test is returned with a dismal mark of 30.

At lunch, Juuban District Middle School’s students are abuzz with rumors of jewelry thieves and Sailor V, the soldier of love and justice who catches the thieves. Usagi’s best friend Naru is having a huge sale at her mom’s jewelry store that lures all the girls in their class – but will it attract trouble as well?

Usagi makes a series of detours on her way home: playing the new Sailor V game at the Game Crown Center, injuring a snobby stranger and then being insulted by him – and seeing that strange little cat again.

After getting home and being forced to reveal her test grade, Usagi deals with her mother’s wrath and her brother’s teasing by falling asleep!

Usagi is awakened from her sweet dreams by scratching and a strange voice – the cat has broken into her room and it can talk! The cat introduces herself as Luna, and presents Usagi with a glimmering brooch and a mission to fight evil.

With the words “Moon Prism Power Make Up!!!”, something within Usagi changes. She hears the screams of Naru being attacked by a monster and springs into action!

By the light of the moon, who will have the strength and courage to save Naru? Why has Luna appeared and chosen Usagi of all people to help her? And just who exactly is that handsome masked stranger in a tuxedo?!

    Your work looks so good. Your group could actually work in Kodansha and do a really good job. I recommend your group go and work there because your scans and translations are like professionals.

      Thanks. :) I used to work as a translator for a famous U.S. manga publishing company, however, it doesn’t pay very well and I’ve since moved into technical translations for the semiconductor industry. Gotta pay dem bills! :D

    You did amazing work! Thank you so much. The wait paid off! I was just wondering something. I wanted to buy at least one of the original Japanese perfect editions, but I can’t find anywhere which volumes contain what chapters. My favorite arc is the dream arc. Could someone tell me which volumes contain that one?
