    Chibiusa tuvo mucho protagonismo en este tomo, y a Usagi se la vio poquito... pero realmente no me molestó porque por fin cada una de las Inner tuvo su espacio en cada capítulo *_*, aunque el de Minako la verdad no me convenció demasiado.El último capítulo fue ge-nial. Las Outer deberían tener un spin-off.Quedan pocos tomos para que se termine el manga... y no quiero.

    This review is also posted on my blog.(view spoiler)[Oh man, that was intense.All the FEELS.I absolutely loved how each scout got their own chapter focused on each of them! That was such a relief and a welcome break from the main focus on Usagi, as much as I love her to death. (Although I was disappointed that Makoto’s chapter seemed the shortest and the least in depth, but, eh, the others were all *fantastic* so it’s hard to feel too upset about it.)The VENUS feels at the end specifically though.And the Outer Senshi coming back!!THAT FRIGGEN CLIFFHANGER.And all the scouts getting powered up and getting their crystal transformations and attacks and ARTEMIS IS HUMAN and just holy WOW.HOLY HELIOS. (Though isn’t Chibi-Usa a little young to have a love interest??)And just, I don’t know, the exploration and development of all the senshi and Chibi-Usa’s character specifically and all the girls having THEIR OWN SPUNK and THEIR OWN DREAMS and each one being perfectly beautiful and valid and none of them needing a man to do SHIT (and actively addressing it, more than once) and Hotaru being raised by THREE WOMEN (one of which is actively gender fluid ahlsiudhfd) and THIS IS JUST A GREAT SERIES OKAYSUCH A GREAT SERIESAND I’M ALMOST DONE WITH IT TOO HOLY SHIT WHEN DID THAT HAPPENI’M COMING FOR YOU VOLUME TEN(hide spoiler)]["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    What I like about this volume is that we see more of the other senshi. We practically focus on them. The part with the outer senshi is my favourite by far. What I don't like is how they all have to push away their dreams for their princess. Haruka always misses Usagi. Michiru and the others think of her. No, Michiru's greatest dream was to be a violist and be with Haruka. I prefer the original anime because there yes, they all have to save Usagi and protect her, but they also show more of themselves.

    I love love love how the main Sailor Scouts are finally getting some real character development and we get to see much more of the regular every-day girls being friends and hanging out. But there are also some mysterious magical things going on, battles to fight, monsters to vanquish, and new characters to introduce us to new worlds.

    Poder disfrutar este arco sin el relleno excesivo del anime es algo que agradezco demasiado. Este tomo nos muestra más a fondo los deseos y sueños de las chicas y como aceptan su destino. Y pues, tengo a Helios así que soy muy feliz.

    This may be spoilers for anyone who hasnt either read the manga this far ahead or seen the anime (give or take the basic... I said basic!... plot is the same). But really, are you going to be looking at reviews for SM vol 9 if you havent at least seen or read this far ahead, or plan on being spoiled? Either way, I warned you!I love this arc. Ok, I love all the arcs. And Black Moon is still my favourite. Chibi Usa/Rini isnt my favourite soldier... but for some reason all the arcs I really love and certain elements of them pertain to her...Black Moon... Black Lady...Dream Arc... Chibi-Usa/Rini & Helios...I must really like that squeaky pink meatball head (hehehe... meatball head). So I give you... the cutest SM couple EVERRRRRR... (besides Usagi/Serena & Mamoru/Darien). Now I know your thinking... 'But Lauren... thats a horse and a kid...' Step back haters! And let me finish!She's riding the horse... oh come on! Doesnt that look fun? A horse that will take you places AND talk to you! (Yes, yes he's a Pegasus not a horse. I KNOW THIS. Just... go with it...)Being cute n stuff...Annnnd thennnn...Wait a minute... THATS not a horse (Pegasus. OH BE QUIETTTT)... What on earth is... going o-AHHHH! AHHH! AHHH! Seeee... he's not a horse!!! I TOLD YOU IT GETS GOOD. Naww... SideNote: For anyone who watched the SM anime dub... How creepy is it with that 40 yr old voice over doing Pegasus/Helios' voice! WHY?! It just... its laughable. But I wont let it ruin the moment...Sahhh cute!

    The Dead Moon Arc is one of the weaker Sailor Moon arcs, primarily because Chibi Usa is allowed to step in as co-main character. No. Just no. Listen, I'm cool with Chibi Usa growing as a character. I'm fine with her fighting right alongside Sailor Moon, but the story definitely loses some traction when we focus on her rather than Usagi. Usagi is the heart and soul of the story and trying to pretend that Chibi Usa has the same gravitas is just that: pretending.That said, since pretty much every chapter in this volume is a power-up type chapter it means we get to spend some one on one type with the inner senshi, which is always fun. However, the inner senshi can't hold a candle to the last chapter which finally brings back the outer senshi! For me, the highlight of this volume was showing how happy Haruka, Michiru, and Setsuna were with their life with Hotaru, but always feeling in the back of their minds that they were going to have to return to battle someday. When Hotaru sees her reflection as Sailor Saturn? Chilling and beautiful. And I'm always down for Haruka and her devotion to Usagi.And! Bonus points for quoting from "The Second Coming" and not using the final lines or "things fall apart; the center cannot hold." I don't think I've ever seen anyone quote this poem and not reference those famous lines, so it really impresses me that Takeuchi would direct our attention to elsewhere in the poem.

    While the story and plot itself is just as good as any Sailor Moon volume has ever been, I docked a star from my rating for two irksome reasons: first is Takeuchi-sensei's renderings of Helios in pegasus form. They're so distracting, with very bad anatomy that should have been easy to draw using reference images of horses. When I eventually saw a beautifully depicted elephant in one frame of this volume, it frustrated me even more that Helios wasn't given that kind of attention. The other negative in this book is the spelling/grammar errors. I actually thought, several times, I should apply as an editor to Kodansha Comics, just to make sure simple typos like "paniful" won't happen anymore! After all, every single volume of the new Sailor Moon manga has been riddled with simple, easy-to-fix errors like these. Having gotten all that off my chest, I still loved reading this volume and recommend it to everyone, typos and all. I was enthralled, surprised, amused, and pleased by this part of the story and I can't wait to start the next one!

    This might be the single volume I was most looking forward to adding to my collection. Because Pluto was always my favorite, of course. As I get deeper into the series, I'm realizing that I remember the story less and less clearly. Obviously because I read the first few volumes dozens of times, but the last few only a couple of times each. One of my favorite single chapters is in this volume, showing Haruka, Michiru, and Setsuna's quiet, private lives raising baby/toddler Hotaru. Very sweet chapter, though of course nothing that nice can last.

    This manga is the best in the series of Sailor Moon manga for me, so much action, so many dreams from all the inner senshi sailors, so many things going on around ... it is still a new awakening Sailor Saturn that made me happy and the outer senshi sailors to be able to transform again like the others. I can not wait to read the next volume. I hope they make the Sailor Moon Crystal season 4 just like this, from page to page.

    As much as I love the manga, I think at times the 90s anime did some things better than the nanga. While we get a lot of great depth for all the Senshi as the Dream arc explores their dreams and fears in this volume, the way the anime handled the deaths of the Amazon Trio was crafted much better than in here. Of course, they had a full season to develop that, instead of just a few chapters. Still, that doesn't make the manga bad, just suitably different.

    The new Sailormoon series has more per volume than the old one, so this series' vol 9 is actually further along than the vol 9 of the original translation released in America. I am also digging the new covers. Don't get me wrong, the old covers were nice but the new ones are more uniform with one another, which I really like. This volume is about the Dead Moon Circus, and as quite a bit that you would not find in the anime. A solid volume.

    Powerful, climactic stuff!Mamoru is sick, and soon coughs up black blood. Usagi and Chibiusa, having switched physical sizes, comprehend inner and outer problems all around them, what with the Dead Moon Circus spreading their influence everywhere. (There's a moment of self-awareness where the Inner Guardians mistake the grown-up Chibiusa for Black Lady. Yet, Chibiusa frantically wonders, "Who's Black Lady?" She really doesn't remember being her evil alter ego in the Black Moon arc? There wasn't any indication of this before). Anyway, the two revert back to normal after transforming into Super Sailor Guardians in the next battle. Chibiusa's Pegasus, Helios, is desperate for help from a young maiden - mainly to find the Golden Crystal. She develops feelings for Helios: Is he her new prince? In the middle of the story he finally reveals himself as the Priest of Elysion - a land which protects the earth from deep within its heart. Helios, Mamoru the prince/Guardian of earth, the earth itself, and Elysion are all connected. Due to Dead Moon destroying dreams, spreading darkness and imprisoning Helios in their new moon (no longer inhabiting the extinct Silver Millennium), the linked four are dying. His strength to appear in spirit gone, Helios vanishes, his last words a declaration that both the Legendary Silver Crystal and the mysterious Golden Crystal are the only forces that can drive out Dead Moon's darkness and death. No matter how much Mamoru tries to steer Usagi away from him, feeling himself a constant burden and a danger to her in his sickness, she vows to stay by his side always - for that is her dream. Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and Venus each get chapters of their own where they are confronted by what their dreams really mean, and by their deepest insecurities. They are conflicted with their individual desires and their shared Sailor destiny to fight evil and protect the Moon Princess Serenity. Each Guardian meets a "mini-me" - a "mini-me" who calls her “princess” - of her own during her battle and new transformation. Each of them looks up to the Sailors Uranus, Neptune and Pluto for guidance (i.e. like Chibiusa, learning how to be an adult). Tensions rise, and as the girls continue to feel useless - unable to transform ever since the eclipse which brought Dead Moon to earth - they fight alone. Teamwork suffers, and the relentless enemy gains the upper hand. Meanwhile, the sorely-missed Outer Solar System Guardians live a quiet, peaceful and productive life raising a rapidly-aging Hotaru. It's only a matter of time before she awakens again, and lets the Outers know what they've felt is their mission all along: It's the same as the Inners', to protect their Princess Serenity, for the future Silver Millennium. Artemis gives Minako the power to transform into Sailor Venus, but the Amazoness Quartet seem unstoppable. No power seems strong enough to defeat these parasites.Chibiusa and Diana are concerned for Mamoru. And for Usagi, who has started coughing... Phew! There is a lot going on!I love the Guardians' character development the most. Intelligent, sweet Ami with her dreams in medicine, whilst still coping with her parents' divorce and feeling that they think she's always too busy studying to care about them. Serious, aloof Rei wants to be a shrine priestess, and is constantly under pressure to fit into gendered traditions and get married and settle down. Lonely but ambitious Makoto has many dreams, and doesn’t know how to prioritize each one realistically. And the bubbly Minako wishes to be an idol, and this becomes more potent when, as the only Inner Guardian left who cannot transform (something only Artemis, Luna and Diana know about), she feels she's failed as a leader and protector. Her bond with the brave Artemis gets a spotlight. Nice to know she is grateful for everything he's done for her, too. The Guardians learn to overcome their weaknesses, and know they are not alone in their confusion about what it means to achieve their dreams. It’s a good metaphor for growing up.Plus, Chibiusa is heartbroken at the possibility that she isn't the grown, beautiful maiden Helios is looking for. Despite their constant bickering, she looks up to Usagi, and is also jealous of her for being so powerful and lovely a saviour as Sailor Moon, even though she is her future mother. Chibiusa's inferiority complex is explored further in this arc, and thank heaven she is given her own prince to fawn over instead of her future father, Mamoru. When in the body of an adult, it's easier to see that she can be a brave woman sometimes, in the face of so many traumatising things happening.Usagi, as she grows older, does start thinking about taking her relationship with Mamoru to "the next level" - which in the beginning is very awkward when she is in the body of a child. Like her love life, Usagi Tsukino is maturing, along with the 'Sailor Moon' series with its more complex storylines and artwork. Near the end, when it appears she might have been infected by Mamoru's curse, it is genuinely terrifying. A perfect cliffhanger!I would talk about the character journeys the Outer Senshi go through in this volume, but that would take far too long. I'll only say that their development is as inspiring and thoughtful as that of the main characters. They have their own professions as well as a child to bring up, and now they're called to be Sailor Soldiers once more. What lives these ladies lead! Plus, little Hotaru/Sailor Saturn knows poetry.Bigger, badder villains; increasingly intense action, suspense, character background and depth; more excitement. What more could any 'Sailor Moon' fan want? The Dead Moon Circus arc is turning into a fairy tale in the Brothers Grimm sense. Even though Death Busters is my favourite arc, it still feels like the series keeps getting better and better. The love is brimming; I can't wait to get into the tenth volume.Wow, ten already! I'm positively flying through these reviews!Final Score: 5/5

    Deep in the Dead Moon arc, all the Guardians go through internal trials and gain new power. This manga has a few chapters I've truly loved, like the Outer Senshi and a peek into the lives they've gotten to live after they left at the end of the Infinity Arc, and their sorrow that they have to left it all go and return to the battle. Saturn reawakens as a new Guardian, and gives the others their reborn powers. Venus' trial, however, is pretty weak. She can't transform and decides to keep it to herself, but still goes knowingly alone into enemy territory.

    “Ah… that’s right. I’ve got tons of people I love in my life. I want to love them a lot, lot more. … I want to protect them.”With the Dream arc now in full swing, our favorite team of Sailor Guardians plus Tuxedo Mask are drawn in by the mysterious new circus in town, whose shows hypnotize the audience and were weird, surreal-like experiences are constantly occurring. Though the story initially seems a bit more playful and lighthearted – the Amazoness quartet, the four minion villains, are cute young girls who even seem bored with their jobs at times – it actually delves quite deep psychologically.Since the Dead Moon circus prays on dreams and the inner psyche, the Amazoness quarters works tirelessly to find out the Sailor Guardian’s ‘true’ dreams and lead them away from their duty by dangling the things in front of them that they’ve always wanted – for Ami to be a highly professional doctor, for Makoto to open a cake shop and get married, for Rei to be the head priestess of her family shrine, and for Makoto to become a famous idol.These are all dreams that they have as young teenage girls in a human world, and the quartet abuses this knowledge – by entering the Guardians’ dreams – to tempt them into giving up their pursuit of being the protectors of the Galaxy (and by proxy, of Sailor Moon/Princess Serenity). In that sense, this ninth volume of Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon is quite interesting – it delves fully into the realms of character development, giving every Guardian her own mini-arc in which she has to overcome her own weaknesses, insecurities, and fears, eventually remembering her real dream amidst the illusions that the Dead Moon circus casts.Meanwhile, Chibi-Usa keeps meeting the mysterious Helios in her dreams, and Mamoru has gotten quite ill. We also get a brief flash of what the Outer Guardians – Haruka, Michiru, Setsuna and baby Hotaru – are up to, away from the rest of our party.On a large scale, this volume might not have been as interesting as some of the more climactic or inspiring moments in the series, but I really appreciated the fact thatNaoko Takeuchi took the time here, nearing the end of the series, to further develop her characters and give them all some individual screentime.All taken together, a great story sidestep that allows for a closer look into what simmers beneath the surface for the Sailor Guardians – and then Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Venus, rather than just Sailor Moon herself.

    This volume had so much feelings in it. I love how we get so see more from the others girls. I have so many new favorite characters. And I'm glad we got to see them in this one again. But this volume also had some really good cliffhangers. I can't believe I'm almost done with this manga series. This series has so many childhood memories. But I'm happy that I finally got the chance to see how it ends.

    I loved this volume. Getting to see more into all the scouts's lives was amazing. There was background info I didn't know, but often wondered. I am so into this arc, I need the next volume!!I also love that the outer senshi are back in the story line and it sounds like they're only going to be more and more involved as the arc goes on.

    No sé que tan bueno sea que Darién no quiera nada con Serena chibi, porque significa que el físico le afecta, pero qué bueno, porque eso sí que hubiera sido un trauma.Osea ya quedó demostrado que Darién podrá apestar a bote, pero no a azufre... ya siquiera.Aunque no puedo perdonarle que le haya contagiado la tuberculosis a Usagi... #pincheDarienPD. ¡¿Que pedo con Artemis?!

    I'm not going to lie, I think the series has definitely hit its peak. But it's still Sailor Moon, and I still love it, despite its flaws, so of course I'll keep reading. (I've also just never been a Chibi Usa fan, and that's probably not helping right now…)
