Done in collaboration with our dear friend Icera of Neo Nobility, this is the first release in a series of joint projects we are doing with Icera for the side-stories.
The Chibiusa Picture Diaries are a series of short stories that focus on the adventures of Chibiusa. They appear in both the original Japanese print manga, the re-print Japanese manga, as well as in the English-language version of the manga published by Tokyopop and Mixx comics. However, as the official English language translations for the short stories are somewhat problematic, we have undertaken a project to finish them all up and offer them online in a high quality, digitally remastered format for your downloading pleasure.
Or, read our manga snark edition!
