: My intention is to create a definitive catalogue of all the changes made to the Sailor Moon manga when it was re-released in 2003 and 2004. It is my goal for these records to be incredibly thorough, to the point of people wondering why I even wrote something down an alteration was so miniscule. Most
changes that were made were not major, and can be missed unless searching for them. There are, however, quite obvious changes as well.
This record goes through each panel of every page, and logs all variances between the originals and re-releases. Major changes are highlighted in orange
, and include images that have been fully redrawn, not just cleaned up, and any
changes to the dialogue, from added particles to changed attack phrases. All changes use the original releases as points of reference, so you don't need to own the re-releases in order to understand what exactly was changed.
Links to images, where included, direct to Manga Style
, Sailor Dream
, and The Oracle
, all excellent sources when it comes to the manga art and re-releases.Important note
: Japanese text support is needed to view changes to the dialogue; translations and furigana are not provided as of this point in time.
