14-year-old crybaby Tsukino Usagi is always late, irresponsible, is boy-crazy, never serious and gluttonous. She's chosen by the talking guardian cat Luna as the leader Sailor Senshi, Sailor Moon. As Sailor Moon, Usagi must fight the evil of Queen Beryl and the Dark Kingdom and locate/protect the Moon Princess. She's joined by Ami, Rei, Makoto and Minako, the other four (more serious) Sailor Senshi. The senshi is occasionally rescued by the mysterious Tuxedo Kamen. Written by

Naoko Takeuchi had started up the whole saga with "Codename: Sailor V", a manga comic about a young schoolgirl, Minako Aino, who gains superpowers and the form of a young woman and fights for justice under the codename Sailor V. She was accompanied by a cat named Artemis and had a magical compact and pen to assist her. Run-Run, the company that published the comic, intended to make an anime series about Sailor V (in the time-honored tradition of making manga and anime series together), but unfortunately went bankrupt before production started. The idea of a celestial superheroine was retained/expanded/refined, but Sailor V ended up as Sailor Moon's friend and comrade Sailor Venus. See more »
In the Hebrew dub the Senshi said "Wake up" when transforming. When the studio realised that they were supposed to say "Make up" as they do in the original Japanese they decided to keep having them say "Wake up" as they felt it went better with Hebrew. See more »
The first season of Sailor Moon starts with the crybaby Usagi meeting a mysterious talking cat, Luna. Luna senses that the 14 year-old girl is the soldier of love and justice and offers Usagi a special broach that allows her to transform into Sailor Moon! The storyline may seem a bit repetitive at times (with the Dark Kingdom's main goal is to steal energy at first, then get their hands on the elusive Ginzuishou), but get rid of the filler episodes, and you get an amazing epic of the moon princess and her soldiers being reborn on Earth after a disaster had befallen on the Moon Kingdom over a millenium ago.
Besides Sailor Moon, the other four sailor senshi make their grand entrances as well as Tuxedo Kamen, a rather two-dimensional character who saves Sailor Moon in times of crises by throwing his trademark rose at his enemies.
The music is certainly worth listening to as it captures the clumsiness of Usagi at first to its seriousness and beauty of her becoming a soldier of love.
The animation may seem a bit subpar at times but that has improved in later seasons. One of the many trademarks of this series is its impressive attack and transformation sequences that are really just pleasureable to watch and admire.
If you have only seen the dubbed version of this series, I suggest you find a way of getting the original episodes, subtitled. You get the sense of the deeper romance, emotion, as well as the great battles and a more mature dialogue of these young girls who attempt to balance their own wacky teenage lives with their duties as soldiers. The final two episodes of the first season of Sailor Moon are by far the best episodes of all the five seasons.
-Highly recommended- 8/10
