Sailor Moon is ©
Naoko Takeuchi et al, 1992.
Are you a
Sailor Moon fan? Wanna get your hands on your own copies of
the manga? Don't know where to go? The following information
should help! (I hope ^_~ )
- Many manga, both original Japanese and especially
translated, are available at regular
comic shops. Try
looking in the yellow pages for your local comic book
shop, or call 1-888-COMIC BOOK to find the comic shop
nearest you. If the only comic shops around don't carry
Sailor Moon, or if you are looking for the original
Japanese (which is harder to find), the owner of the
store may be able to order it specially for you if you
- A company called Mixx
Publications offers translated issues of
Sailor Moon. They started the series in a magazine called
Mixxzine - which has been renamed Tokyo Pop - now it runs
in its own book, and they have started running Sailor
Moon S in a magazine called Smile. They also offer
collected additions that they call 'Pocket Manga'. More
info on their products and subscription information at
their web site.
- Another good place to look, especially if you live in
a larger city, is
Chinatown. You'll be
amazed what you can find if you look hard enough.
- There is a Shopping Guide section of the
Anime Web Turnpike
that lists places to shop for anime and manga in various
locations around the world.
- You may be able to find a deal on used manga at
Ebay. Serch around
often for a bargin.
If you live in Toronto, like I do, here is a list
of places that I like to go to for manga stuff.
- The Silver Snail
- locations at 367 Queen St. W., 2374 Yonge St. and 391
Bank St. in Ottawa. I've never been to the shop on Yonge
or the one in Ottawa, but the one on Queen has an
excellent selection of English translated manga, as well
as some original Japanese stuff upstairs.
- Kiki Wai -
In the Chinatown Center at 222 Spadina Ave. A small
shop, but stuffed to the top with all kinds of neat
stuff. You might have to do a little wandering around
before you find it, but there are plenty of other neat
shops to stumble across until you do find it. The people
who work there are really nice too! I highly recommend
Well, that's about all the helpful hints I can think of.
I hope that this info can help some of you out there who are
having trouble finding manga to enjoy. I wish I could help
out more people internationally, but I've only ever lived
here in Canada, so I don't have very much personal
experience with finding manga elsewhere. The best advice is
don't give up looking! It's worth the effort. ^_~
