Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute adventure! Always been curious about Sailor Venus before uniting with the sailor scouts. Now it's all clear. Cute, yet meaningful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute as always! This 2nd volume is really cute and fun as the first! She's reminds me a lot like Sailor Moon with the boy crushes, idols, and 13 year old dreams haha. Definitely a good choice after reading volume 1!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointing This volume was very disappointing because of both the entire chapter about getting fat and desperately needing to lose weight, and the awful Chinese stereotypes towards the end. Even without these problematic elements, Codename Sailor V is not nearly as enjoyable as Sailor Moon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sunset Into a New Adventure... The conclusion to "Codename: Sailor V", but definitely not the last we will see of Minako Aino and Artemis! Again, the artwork is exquisite in this volume, and Minako's disguises range from awesome to outrageous. It is also here that we see the beginning of her growth and development into the Sailor Venus we know and love from "Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon". Definitely worth purchasing to complete your collection.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Codename: Sailor V 2 Much better than the first one! Especially near the end. It made much more sense and tied in with the Sailor Moon series.

Editorial Reviews

"With its whimsical sense of fashion, thrilling adventure and complex backstory, Sailor Moon was like little else young girls had ever before seen on television, and miles above anything American animators were offering them. The anime led to interest in the manga, which in turn became the sort of success that made the bookstore market sit up and take notice. Scratch a modern-day manga fangirl, and you're likely to find someone who watched Sailor Moon when she was young." -The Comics Journal
