Sine Timore Early Warning System: Codename Sailor V
Us longtime Sailor Moon fans are familiar with Codename Sailor V. First done as a manga in 1991, it followed the adventures of schoolgirl Minako Aino and her cat, Artemis. These two characters would eventually migrate into the main cast of Sailor Moon. Sadly, this inspiration for one of the most popular manga/anime never officially made it to the US.
Kodansha Comics USA is releasing an official English translation of Codename Sailor V, and will be reprinting the Sailor Moon manga alongside it, starting in September.
