Usagi Tsukino was a normal school girl until a stuffed cat named Luna literally fell into her life. Next thing she knows, she's the Sailor Senshi known as Sailor Moon and is destined to find the Moon Princess and defeat all evil that comes in her way. But she's not alone though; Sailor Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Venus and Tuxedo Kamen will help her throughout her battles. This is a live-action series re-telling of the Bishoujo Senshi Sailormoon manga and anime series and doesn't follow exactly to the original. (i.e: Minako actually is an idol, CROWN Gaming Center has been changed to a karaoke center, Luna is a stuffed animal.) Written by
In Act 33, Zoisite (Yoshito Endoh) tells Jadeite (Jun Masuo) that he was the youngest and looked up to Master Endymion like a big brother. However, according to Naoko Takeuchi in the manga, Zoisite is the youngest Dark Kingdom General at 16-17. See more »

I thought it would be an utter crap, but surprisingly, I found myself liking it a lot. Let's make it clear: It's NOT a mind-boggling masterpiece, the music isn't the best and the action will come across as pathetic and even outrageous for a good action sucker (fortunately, that's not my case), but honestly, do good-action suckers know Sailor Moon (in any on its forms) exists? Another mess-up is the monsters, transformations and CGI effects-- they look sorta cheap and kitschy and very Power Rangers-like. However, the other virtues PGSM has kinda make up for this. Unlike many, I never saw the anime when I was a 6-year-old, and when I started to watch it online, I thought it was very slow-paced and got bored in the third chapter. I thought that the characters were pretty lame (particularly Usagi) and not given much importance and I desperately wanted a new senshi to appear soon, so that something actually happened to the show. However, no senshi appeared till episode 8. Rei appears right after Ami, in the episode 10, but we don't get the slightest glimpse of Makoto, my 2nd favourite senshi (in PGSM and the SM manga; in the anime she is really dumb) till episode 25! I mean, please. The action was supposed to really start once all of the Senshi were joined up, not be almost an entire saga like in the anime! The characters are simply more likable. Rei, Makoto, Usagi and Minako were all dumb, immature, high-pitched boy-crazy bimbos with very slight differences among them in the anime. Ami--or Amy, whatever--was your typical "cool nerd", to call it someway. However, in PGSM, every one of the Senshi has a distinct personality and is much more realistic and convincing than her usually stereotyped anime counterpart. All in all, the better pace and character development of PGSM was what made me like it more than the anime. Besides, the acting is pretty good, specially taking into account it's the first TV role for all the main actresses (the Sailor Senshi, of course) and in fact almost the entire cast.
