As reading through in Japanese forces much slower reading for me than in English, and I’m appreciating the artwork much more, I’m also finding…Ms. Takeuchi has made some silly flubs along the way!
First that stood out to me was in the Mars intro chapter, on the bus. While I agree that bottom-left panel wouldn’t look as good showing Usagi’s profile from her other side, considering the position of the person looking at Usagi she really should be shown facing left (in my opinion):
More recently, in Act.8, we open with a (part of the story) color page showing Venus holding/dropping her removed gloves, but in the black and white pages after, she’s still wearing her gloves until after she attacks Tuxedo Mask, after which she takes them off. The color page was included in the original Nakayoshi release, so my best guess is that was created separate from the actual story pages, so Takeuchi didn’t pay attention to making up that detail.
The big one for me is on K.8.27, the page after Usagi meets with Mamoru by the fountain, where she takes out Mamoru’s pocket watch. Usagi uses her left hand to get the watch from her pocket, then her right hand is shown holding it, and then we see her holding it in her left hand. Was she playing her own version of hot potato?
My favorite scene in Act.8 is definitely Usagi telling her family that she is, in fact, actually the heroine of justice known as Sailormoon.
I’ve also found with the ような’s in Act.8, I’m finally starting to get a grasp of understanding them when I read them. ような seems straightforward enough, but after knowing its meaning for years, I found that when reading (which I only really started around 2019, not counting analyzing every line of a manga in 2018), I had to think about ような whenever I encountered it. With as much as it came up in Act.8, I’m starting to have a “feel” for its meaning when I read it, without thinking. Progress =D
