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 Animamates of the Shadow Galactica take civilian identities based on their names:
  • Sailor Iron Mouse takes the name of Chiuko Nezu ("chu" is the sound mice make, and "Nezu" is short for "nezumi", which means "mouse." )


  • Sailor Aluminium Siren takes the name of Reiko Aya (this is a word pun on "mermaid" and "puppet"' mermaids are infamous for acting as sirens to make men puppets )


  • Sailor Lead Crow takes the name of Akane Karasuma (these are the words for a certain shade of red; "red" and "lead" are given the same writing in Japanese)


  • Sailor Tin Nyanko takes the name of Nyanko Suzu ("nyanko" is colloquial slang for "cat", while "suzu" means "bell").

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 introduced me to Anime!
20 January 2003 | by (FL, USA) – See all my reviews

Sailor Moon....the Anime series that changed my life. I've been a devoted moonie for about 6 years. Like many, it was my introduction to Japanese Anime.

For those who don't know, Sailor Moon is about Usagi Tsukino, a 14-year-old girl who lives in Japan. She gets horrible grades, loves food, is a crybaby, and enjoys sleeping. One day, she is running late for school, per usual, and she spots some little kids tormenting a black cat. She shoos them away and notices a bandage on the cats' forehead. She pulls it off to reveal a crescent moon. Usagi stares in awe, then rushes to school. Later that day, after scoring a 30 on a test, being kicked out of her house, and crying, she decides to take a nap. A few moments pass, and she opens her eyes to see the black cat is there! She introduces herself as Luna, and tells Usagi that she must become Sailor Moon, the soldier who will fight evil and one day protect their Moon Princess. Usagi decides that she is dreaming and goes back to sleep. Luna tells her that it's not a dream, and gives her a special broach. She tells Usagi to hold her hand up and say 'Moon Prism Power Make up!' Usagi does so, and transforms into the pretty suited soldier, Sailor Moon! ........And that's only the beginning! Usagi must also find the inner senshi, Sailors Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Venus. This season is my personal favorite from the other 4 seasons(R, S, Super S, and Stars). Don't get me wrong, I love all 5 seasons. This would have to be my favorite because you have no idea of what will happen next. Sailor Moon is a great introduction to Anime. If you enjoy it, read the Manga series as well! I give Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon 10/10 stars. Moon Prism Power Make Up!
