So she immediately takes command by gathering anything that may be used as a weapon to threaten the lives of anyone who may attempt to usurp her new found authority.

    Definitely Strobe Edge!!! I have been buying the Sailor Moon manga so the box set isn’t really worth it…

  2. badzphoto says:

    I’ll pick up Bunny Drop 7, Kimi ni todoke 15, Strobe Edge 1, We were there 15, Oresama Teacher 11, Mission of Love 1. It’s too bad that I collected Ouran High and Sailor Moon by volume!
