YMMV / Codename: Sailor V

  • Harsher in Hindsight: The manga's finale gives Minako's carefree disposition much more weight when you realize just how hard she had it fighting the forces of the Dark Kingdom for a year before the other Senshi awoke. And never brings this up or holds it against them.
  • Les Yay: Sakurada has a none too subtle crush on Sailor V.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Petite Pandora smiling while dying, as she's unleashing toxic gas as it happens. *shudders*
  • More Popular Spin-off: Sailor Moon
  • Sequel Displacement: Due to No Export for You the series was only known by the most dedicated Sailor Moon fans until 2011, when an official English translation was finally made available.
  • Values Resonance: The story about Minako being harassed by an obsessive Otaku who assumes she's a guy in drag because he can't accept the idea of a girl beating his high score, as well as the fact that he acts completely inappropriate when she turns into Sailor V and overall thinks girls have no right "invading" video arcades is surprisingly appropriate given the surge in harassment against female gamers and fans for being "fake geek girls."
