Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon Shinsōban (New Edition)

Sailor Moon was re-released in 10 shinsōban (new edition volumes) from 2003—2004. The covers feature the new official English title for the series, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon. Shinsōban is a new edition (aka ‘renewal edition’) with a new cover, new color pages and other bonus features.

The color pages originally reprinted in greyscale for the tankouban are all printed in color and sticker sheets are included with each book. Naoko Takeuchi’s free talks from the tankouban were removed.

The volumes were re-edited and some pages were redrawn and dialogue rewritten by Takeuchi for the new edition. The chapters were redivided to fit 12 volumes instead of 18 and the bonus stories moved into two separate volumes.
