Have you read the manga yet? I picked up vol. 1 at a con, but I haven't had a chance to read it yet.
Personally, I recall prefering the manga to the anime (this was back in the MixxZine days; I haven't thought of Sailor Moon in so long). It seemed to skew slightly older than even the original anime (as in, I think Takeuchi-san's manga was toned down slightly for the screen, then toned down further
for the dub). At least, I don't recall hearing of Usagi's suicide attempt (after Mamoru's death) appearing in the anime in any form.
It also doesn't suffer from "manga-to-anime" syndrome ("let's use this 5-chapter manga storyline to fill 13 half-hour episodes!"), so the pacing is much more breakneck.
