The first volume of the Sailor Moon Eternal Edition was the beginning of one of the most comprehensive overhauls ever seen for a Western release of the Sailor Moon manga — new colour art never released outside of Japan, new translations, and even new covers from Naoko Takeuchi herself. Now we’ve got an exclusive look inside the second volume.

Kodansha has provided Kotaku the first look at some of the colour pages that will be included in volume 2 of the Eternal Edition. While prior English releases of the Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon manga have included some of the original colour versions of Takeuchi’s original, iconic artwork from the series, the ongoing release of Eternal Edition marks the first time ever that all of the colour work Takeuchi did for Sailor Moon has been officially released in the West.
