Mina is a 13 year old school girl and one day a white cat, who she has been running into, tells her she has the power to turn into Sailor V.This is my first time reading Sailor V, as I want to read it before I start Sailor Moon. It's very light-hearted and funny. Mina goofs off quite a bit. She worries more about playing video games than going to school, but she is a likable character. I enjoyed volume 1. I'm looking forward to volume 2.
