Sailor Moon 9 & Fairy Tail 23

Sailor Moon 9

We've got two great new books out this week: Sailor Moon 9 and Fairy Tail 23! This volume of Sailor Moon continues the Dead Moon Circus arc, in which the Amazoness Quartet tempts each of the guardians in turn with dreams of a sweeter life. The guardians will have to resist and find a way to come together to save Mamoru and Tokyo from this new evil!

He's Naoko Takeuchi's editor in Japan, and he loves getting Tweets in English. (He even posts in English himself from time to time.) Our bosses went to Japan this month and met him for the first time, and he's a fantastic guy.

But on to happier topics: Sailor Moon 8 is now available! This incredibly dramatic volume marks the conclusion of the Infinity Arc and the climactic appearance of Sailor Saturn! (Here's my suggested musical accompaniment.) We hope you all enjoy it.
