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
Pop-idol Minako Aino (known secretly as Sailor V and Sailorvenus) sings the hit "C'est la Vie", which sounds very much like "Sailor V". Her other songs include "Romance" (a reference to the goddess Venus), "Kinsei ni Katagoshi" (which translates as "Venus over the Shoulder") and her album is entitled "Venus", all tongue-in-cheek hints to her secret identity. Minako Aino is Usagi Tsukino's favorite singer. See more »

Everyone, I'm thinking you're surprised that something like this happened so suddenly. I guess I'm surprised too. I'm sure Mars is angry. But I don't regret this. Because I was able to live right and proper as Aino Minako, in the end. Only, I do feel regret that I haven't yet fulfilled the mission of the past life. If I keep writing that though, Mars will be angry again. But, that we were born carrying a past life is the truth. When we overcome that, I think that we will be our true ...

I've watched the entire season from episode/Act 00 through the Special DVD aka Act 50...including the two short mini dramas. In the beginning I thought that it was more on the cheesy side but decided to check out the original Manga before I made anymore thoughts and or comments unlike some people here who've pretty much ragged on it after seeing only 30 episodes. Let alone that this is originally a kid's show.
First of all someone said that the acting was horrible and that the girls are untalented. This is very SO not true. They are acting entirely to the Manga series. Usagi being all jumpy and funny, Ami being all monotone and serious about herself, Rei being serious on all levels and "bossy", Makoto being all protective over Usagi and kicking guy's asses across the blacktop, and Venus being extremely stern. If you actually check out the Manga you will see that though the characters are different from today's standards of Sailor Moon to the yesterday's standard of Sailor Senshi, the characters and acting is all the same. They did a GREAT job.
It's true that in the beginning that the special effects were less than "really cool"...but as a pilot the production crew wasn't entirely too sure if it was going to fly well when they made the first 5 episodes before it originally aired. But you will notice that the effects got better and again...the effects followed the Manga effects of boom, pow, and whoosh. And what do you want the kids to see??? BATTLE ROYALE EFFECTS??? I know I wouldn't want that.
I think that the puppets and CGI used to make Luna and Artemis was actually good from a kid's point of view. From an adult's point of view I think it was corny on a professional level. My reason of thought is this. If you make the cat look too real, who in their right mind is going to take the cat seriously...if you can with all the j-pop faces it makes. And I might add that towards the end the cats got better.
All in all, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon is a great show for kids and adults with open minds alike. For one thing there isn't any blood and believe me, my friends and I watch a lot of movies with someone getting their hands, head, arms, legs, and necks blown off. It's nice to see something that is refreshing as PGSM. And one more thing about the acting. It is clear to me that some people just don't get how hard it is to act like the Manga series. Kitagawa Keiko did an awesome performance when a particular incident happened in episode 47. Above all else before you watch PGSM, you need to have an open mind as well as an intelligent one.
