This story concludes the main story of the Sailor Moon manga. This is it! Will Sailor Moon beat all the bad guys or will she be killed along with all her friends?

Volume 11 of the Sailor Moon Manga’s new English edition by Kodansha is in stores and available online today. This book features Sailor Chibi Chibi on the cover, a character so shrouded in mystery that if I were to tell you who she is I would spoil the whole story for you! This book covers the beginning of the “Stars” arc, the final story arc of the Sailor Moon manga to be completed with the next volume. In this book we have the appearance of Chibi Chibi as well as the Sailor Starlights posing as the Three Lights. Buy this book through the Amazon link below to support our site.
The book as always comes with some nice looking colour pages. Check out a couple of previews of that below.
The art books will all be printed in Japan and distributed around the world. We previously learned that they would be sold in seven countries, which includes Japan and the United States but we still don’t know what those five other countries are. We have learned that each country will have it’s own unique bonus materials meaning it will be quite expensive for completists to get every last one if they want all of the bonus content.
The Kodansha Tumblr page will be having a giveaway tomorrow, May 1st. Prizes, which will include Sailor Moon merchandise, will be manga, pins, calendars, posters and more.

A Sailor Moon fan has recorded a part of the Kodansha Comics USA panel from last weekend’s New York Comic Con which includes the portions relevant to Sailor Moon. The video embedded below has been cued up to when the Sailor Moon discussion begins.
This panel began with the announcmeent of a new Sailor Moon art book for 2013 that we previously discussed on the site. This art book is being put together in Japan and the details are sparse. The Sailor Moon manga box set was then mentioned. These are not new versions of the books, though typos and errors are corrected with reprints so some minor issues may be corrected in these. This followed with a reading of a letter from Naoko Takeuchi to American fans.
Today was the Kodansha Comics USA panel at New York Comic Con. The big announcement they had was that there would be a new Sailor Moon art book released in the US as well as in six other countries in 2013. This will not be a translation of any of the existing art books but rather a compilation taking art from all of the existing books that will also include some previously unpublished material. There were originally seven Sailor Moon art books in Japan which collected art from the manga. This includes volumes I through V, the materials collection and the Infinity art book. None of the existing art books have ever been published in North America.
The panel also included a message from Naoko Takeuchi herself. She confirmed that the box set of the new versions of the Sailor Moon manga will be released for Thanksgiving, November 20th. This message as well as the art book press release can be found below along with pictures of some of the Kodansha booth swag.
A box set collecting the English versions of the first six books of Naoko Takeuchi’s Sailor Moon manga will go on sale November 20th. This set is already up for pre-order on Amazon. This set was first made known when it went up for pre-order on Right Stuf’s web site a few days ago. This was confirmed by Kodansha on Twitter. The box art is only now being made available. It looks like a sheet of cards, bookmarks or stickers comes with the set. The books themselves look like the ones we already have judging by the spines.
The box art, of which we can only see one side, is an image of Tuxedo Mask and Sailor Moon originally used as the cover of the second volume of the manga. Does the first volume cover appear on the other side which we can’t see?
