Groove just made a very exciting announcement via their blog tonight, a Sailor V Pullip is going to be released! Not many details are known just yet about the release of Sailor V as of this writing but I’m guessing she will be a November release. Sailor V will be the fourteenth doll released in the very popular Sailor Moon x Pullip series.
For those of you unfamiliar with the series who are possibly wondering why she looks so much like Sailor Venus right now it is because she is Sailor Venus. The character Aino Minako was previously featured in Naoko Takeuchi’s manga Sailor V where she was the main character, which predates Sailor Moon. Sailor V carried over to the new Sailor Moon manga but as Sailor Venus although she is famous as Sailor V in the Sailor Moon universe as well ie. even in the very first episode you see Sailor V video games and Usagi fantasizes about being a hero like Sailor V even trying to deliver a savage Sailor V kick to her younger brother. Of course, I speak of my experience with the older series and the manga somehow I can’t quite bring myself to watch Sailor Moon Crystal ^^;
I will be sure to update here as more details become available! This one is a definite must buy for me as I love the Sailor V manga possibly even more than the Sailor Moon manga.
