IF TOKYOPOP DID DO IT<CLICKS OFF caps locs> they should keep the original names, and make sure the notes that the put in are Naoko's no TP

I e-mailed them and this is the letter the gave me in return

It should have a Left to right format, original names and translations, and be in a super cute box set!

Right-to-left, using the Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon volumes as the source material, as well as the standard paper they use in their manga. Anything else (character names, attack names, etc.) I could live with.

Or what they could do is that they could do it both ways...one being Left-Right and one bering right to left, thank ViZ for the idea

I'd personally like it if they rereleased the old and the new books.

Why? Well, I like the old covers better, and I don't like that Mercury's new attack name is Mercury Aqua Mist. It breaks the pattern of the sailors not having their name in their attack until they get their power-up. But I'd also like to see the revised dialogue, art, covers, notes, etc of the PGSM release see the light of day in the US.

Of course, I know that would never happen. ^_^ But it's nice to dream.

Thinking more realistically? The one thing I can think of that nobody else has said, is that I would like them to not totally screw up the colours on their covers. It seems like no matter what TokyoPop releases, they screw up the colours badly. (Sailor Moon tome five is NEON PURPLE?!?! And don't even get me started on Tokyo Mew Mew . . . .) I'd like for them to just once look nice.

I say if they want it to be as great as other mangas keep it like it was originally meaning the original names and stuff. Everything like the japanese ones. Hey if they can do that with the other manga why do they have to butcher this one?
