Sailor Moon creator Naoko Takeuchi was not pleased that Toei Animation took the liberties of making the Starlights males in their civilian forms. In the original manga (Japanese comics), the Starlights are females regardless of whether they become Sailor Soldiers or appear in the civilian forms. See more »
Sailor Stars begins as most Sailor Moon series do, with a sidequest that leads into the main plot. But there's a lot more to it than that on closer inspection.
The main plot revolves around visitors from other planets. The Starlights, servants of the Kakyuu Princess of Kinmoku, land on the Planet Earth fleeing from the destruction of their planet of old and disguise themselves as the boygroup Three Lights - Kou Seiya, Kou Taiki and Kou Yaten. Their purpose is to find the Kakyuu Princess, who is floating in space, through the wavelength of their songs.
Meanwhile, the one responsible for the destruction, Sailor Galaxia, is on Earth hunting for "star seeds" - the light that allows life forms to live on this sphere. She begins by taking the Earth's golden star seed
protected by none other than Mamoru Chiba on his way to the United
States to study in college.
The Sailor Soldiers have a hard task. Creatures who lose their Star Seeds become phages - false Sailor Soldiers. They have to deal with the Starlights, who don't care about protecting the Earth and only want to find their Princess. And Sailor Moon - Usagi Tsukino - has to deal with the mutual attraction between her and Kou Seiya.
This story is about what a Sailor Soldier is. If you're interested in Sailor Moon, it's worth it to watch this series. But most of all, this series is a tribute to the life of Shiho Niiyama, Kou Seiya's voice actress, who did the performance of her life in this role. She was taken from us by leukemia in 2000.
So it's not like the manga - who cares? This story is good in and of itself.
