I might just have to double-dip on the manga, I was lucky a few years ago to get copies from eBay, but now I think I want the newly released version of the Sailor Moon manga and I definitely want the Sailor V manga.

Hopefully with all this new interest in Sailor Moon, and with the good sales figures, Toei will be willing to remove Sailor Moon from its vault. I wouldn't mind double-dipping for remastered Blu-Ray DVDs of Sailor Moon. C'mon Toei you know you want to -- and the fans want you to, too.

I can hear the profanity laden tirades at the DC comics offices already.

That is awesome! I know for years it's been speculated how much Sailor Moon would sell if it reappeared and it's nice to see the people who thought it would do great get validated.

Hopefully this might help get the DVDs back out there as well!

GO SAILOR MOON! Very Happy

Really happy to see this manga doing so well in sales. I just hope it will get Takeuchi and Toei to consider opening the show up again for license.

Give a fan-favorite series a respectable and uncut release and it tops the charts

What a strange formula...

Well nice to see Sailor Moon representing. I;m not really surprise the manga would sell well in US. I knew Sailor Moon revival would get a lot of her fans attention. I hope this manga sales can send a message to Toei: "Yes we want Sailor Moon in US now!!!"

Well Blu-ray's not going to happen until it gets released in Japan first but remastered DVDs from the Japanese R2s would be nice.

Wow can't believe it's selling that well. Just imagine if they release the manga sooner by a few years how popular this can get again.

Heh, I used to have an old story concerning a bewildered mother and an anxious ~9-yr-old daughter about the first Sailor Moon, Mixxzine, and a comic shop........ Laughing
