I love it when I'm at home and there is a knock on my door between 10 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.. It means that there is a package for me (more than likely, anyhow)! Today is one of those days!
As I look lovingly at the brown, cardboard rectangle that clearly says "Amazon.ca" on its front, I already know what's inside. I grab the little tab and pull across carefully, opening the make-shift box. I notice how incredibly large the two volumes of manga are, and then flip them over: Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Vol. 2 and Codename Sailor V Vol. 2.
I do a little dance and pet them, my new acquisitions. I sigh happily and put them down, suddenly realizing that I am behind in my reading, since I haven't finished Sailor V vol 1 yet, and have been putting off the first volume of Sailor Moon. I think I'm a little scared, since it has been so long! I have a select few of the "original" volumes released in the 1990s by Mixx, but they are the wrong way around, and poorly translated, and mostly there for collection purposes. Trying to read them is painful. I think this might be why I hesitate with the new volumes, despite the new translation and original "right-to-left" orientation.
How's this: I promise once I've read them to give you guys the full scoop, okay? For now, I shall return to admiring the cover of volume 2... Ami is so pretty as Sailor Mercury...
