German translation of the Japanese anime comics (cine manga).
The series was launched in 1996 (when "Sailor Moon" was briefly on German television) with issue #3/96 and was quickly canceled with issue #5/98. These three issues feature a sub-par translation (taking the names from the Italian version e.g.
When "Sailor Moon" moved to a different network and was highly successful, the comic book series resumed in 1998 with issue #4/98, this time with a much more accurate translation.
Each issue adapts one episode from the animated series.
The first three issues were later collected in the "Sonderheft #1" issue (with new translations) and one issue (#21/2000 - an adaptation of episode 104) managed to get banned in Germany. The dialogue and pictures of said issue are accused of suggesting that Chibi-Usa (the daughter of Sailor Moon) is getting molested and raped by a boy (personally I think it reflects more badly on the people having these absurd thoughts).
The series ended with issue #4/02 after running out of material to print and since the popularity of "Sailor Moon" waned obviously it wasn't profitable enough for Egmont to produce new issues on their own.
