Storyline

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.

Trivia

The Sailor Senshi's civilian names relate to their superhuman roles:
  • the name of Usagi Tsukino is loosely translated as "Rabbit of the Moon" ("usagi" means "rabbit", and "tsuki" means "moon").This pertains to a Japanese folktale about a rabbit that can be seen in the Moon, and also to her moon-based powers.


  • Chibiusa is a loose term of "little Usagi" ("chibi" means "little" or "mini"), she being Usagi's daughter and Sailor MINI-Moon.


  • Ami Mizuno reads "Asian Beauty of Water" ("A" means "Asian" and "mi" means "beauty", while "mizu" means "water"), which reveals her power to control water.


  • Rei Hino's surname relates to fire ("hi" means "fire"), which reveals her power to control fire. The word "rei" could be translated as "beautiful", "companion", "spirit", or "soul" (the latter fits her "Fire Soul" cry), but the name "Rei" is always written in Katakana, which suggests that it doesn't have any Japanese meaning.


  • Makoto Kino translates as "Tree Spirit Makoto" ( "ki" means "tree" and "spirit"), and her power is control over nature (mostly trees/lightning).


  • Minako Aino reads "Beautiful Child of Love" ("mi" means "beauty" and "ko" means child, while "ai" means "love"). This pertains to Venus being the goddess of love.


  • Setsuna Meioh is loosely translated as "Moment of Pluto", which alludes to her power over time ("setsuna" means "moment", while "mei" and "o" mean "dark" and "king" and are derived from "meiosei"-"Dark King Star" which describes Pluto).


  • Michiru Kaioh means "Neptune Rising" ("michiru" means "rising", while "kai" and "o" mean "sea" and "king" and are derived from "kaiosei"-"Sea King Star" which describes Neptune), which alludes to her powers coming from the ocean.


  • Haruka Tenoh means "Distant Uranus" ("haruka" means "distant", while "ten" and "o" mean "sky" and "king" and are derived from "tenosei"-"Sky King Star" which describes Uranus) which alludes to her powers coming from the sky/wind.


  • Hotaru Tomoe is loosely translated as "Firefly of Saturn" ("hotaru" means "firefly", while "to" means "earth" and is derived from "dosei"-"Earth Star" which describes Saturn). Fireflies are associated with spirits of the dead, which allude to her power of death/rebirth.

Goofs

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 »

It's one of those things.
14 December 2004 | by (the minds of the weak.) – See all my reviews

You know.. in life there are many things we like but can never truly tell anyone why. This is one of them. I know I commented on the dub before (and it's entertaining because of how cheesy it is) and I'm not that big of a fan of anime... yet there is SOMETHING i can never put my finger on. I just like it. I really do. I don't see it as a guilty pleasure or anything It's just one of those things I cannot explain for the life of me why I like. I SHOULD think it's stupid. I SHOULD think it's not that good, yet I don't. Something about this oddly charming little piece of japanamation has stolen my heart (no not really) and I really really enjoy it. I guess i'd give you a recommendation to see it. I don't care if you actually do go watch it.
