Part of the educational mission of Warriors of Legend is to provide the best educational resource we can, and, as with any work of research, from time to time some errors or areas requiring improvement will be required. As a result, as we update the text, we release new editions. What follows is a list of changes made to Warriors of Legend in various updates:
Third Edition (Oct. 2006)
Notes: It's now October 2006 and over the two years since we first wrote the Warriors of Legend manuscript, we've learned a lot of new and exciting things about Japan and the Sailor Moon series, and taken a lot more pictures. We wanted to update Reflections of Japan to make sure it met our standards of accuracy.
The edits are minor, for grammatical or clarification purposes. None of them substantially change the text; the biggest change is that we mis-captioned one image. If you own first or second edition, you're not going to miss anything with Third edition. But for those just coming across the Warriors of Legend project, we wanted you to know that the version out now is the best we can make it- unless we find something major, we anticipate no further changes to the manuscript.
