A group of young teens is unexpectedly sent to the mysterious Digital World and paired up with their own powerful, morphing monster called the Digimon. Together the entire group set out on an adventure to fight evil and save the world.
The story centers around an air-headed crybaby, named Usagi, and her friends Ami, Rei, Makato, and Minako. Using special powers, they can transform into Sailor Solders. They become Sailor Moon, Sailor Mercury, Sailor Mars, Sailor Jupiter, and Sailor Venus respectfully. They fight for love and justice against the evil minions of The Dark Kingdom.

The dub version of the show that aired on local networks in syndication and on the USA Network featured a Sailor Says segment following the end of the episode, which gives a positive message to children watching, not unlike what a lot of American cartoons of the day did. See more »
Bishoujo Senshi Seeraa Muun (or as known in the States as Simply Sailor Moon) is the story of a normal girl, Tsukino Usagi/Serena (who loves food and hates school--wow, that's so horrible! Sounds like any 14 yr old girl that's somewhat normal), who finds out she's the reincarnation of the Pretty Sailor Suited Soldier Sailor Moon. The show originally ran from 1992-1994 (They showed the first season in the US in 1992 and ran through what we know as the Doom Tree saga, where DiC dropped the show).
In a nutshell, we follow the lives of what starts off as 5, then turns into 9, girls as they grow and mature...and at the same time balance High School entrance exams with fighting off the evil forces that try to take over the Earth--and the rest of the universe for that matter. Dic ruined the first of the show with its obsessive compulsive censoring (when it actually didn't need any) and love of adding in subliminal "Lessons of the day" to appeal to parents. Cloverway took over, giving us the true beauty of the series...save for making a pair of female lovers into cousins. They won't show the final season SailorStars because of more noticeable evidence of the female pair's relationship and the addition of a trio of males that turn into female, scantily clad Sailor Soldiers.
US version is somewhat poor, but the subtitles uncut version is great for everyone from the young to the young at heart.
