Sailor Moon: 7 Sailor Senshi Who Could Take On Saturn (And 13 Who Don't Stand A Chance)

One of the most influential stories in the culture of Japan has to be Sailor Moon, the story of Sailor Moon, Sailor Neptune, Sailor Saturn, and all the other Sailor Senshi. It's even more influential for young women, as it's one of the most prominent tales of young female protagonists saving the universe. The story began as a manga but has since been adapted into several anime series, a musical, a live action TV series, and video games. Sailor Moon has become an iconic character from Japan to the U.S.

With Sailor Moon comes several classic characters. These not only include her Inner Senshi, but also the Outer Senshi, guardians protecting the planets all across the milky way. All of the characters are tremendous for social movements - Sailor Neptune and Sailor Uranus were openly gay, Tuxedo Mask, the only guy, was a typical damsel in distress, and the Sailor Starlights were cross-dressers.

10 Things You Didn’t Know about Sailor Moon’s Queen Beryl

The show Sailor Moon has been a widely loved program that has been watched by viewers of all ages and has been seen to be popular among men and women throughout many years now for different reasons. The show also manages to boast one of the most iconic female villains of all time in Queen Beryl, even if it seems like there’s not all that much to her. The only downside is that her story and her origin are explained a lot more in the manga than they are in any adaptation that’s been taken on by anime. The manga

Sailor Moon: Every Sailor Senshi Ranked From Least To Most Powerful

In the world of Sailor Moon, the title character’s Sailor Senshi aren’t the only guardians of truth and justice in the universe. As creator Naoko Takeuchi’s world built up in the manga, she added Sailor Senshi from different star systems with many different powers.

As a result, there are nearly three dozen Sailor Senshi named throughout the franchise. Most come from Takeuchi’s manga, but there are many that are exclusive to live action, musicals, and video games.

In addition to Sailor Moon’s team, there are also Princess Kakyuu and her Sailor Starlights as well as Sailor Galaxia and members of her Shadow Galactica empire.

Not all of the Sailor Senshi remain heroes throughout their tenures.

All of the Sailor Senshi have a few things in common. According to Takeuchi herself, they are all female. They are all considered princesses of their own planets/asteroids/moons.

25 Disney Fan Redesigns Way Better Than The Movies

Has any other franchise's characters been as beloved as Disney's cast of lovable heroes and villains?

From antagonists to princesses and mermaids, Disney's characters have truly transcended time. Many of them have become ageless, as they've been loved for decades by fans of all ages. Others have become instant classics, again loved by any and every viewer.

It only makes sense that some avid fans would tweak their favorite characters and make them their own through crossovers and fan art.

In this list, we're featuring some wonderful artwork created by fans of many Disney franchises. Some take a realistic approach, imagining what animals would like as people or making the animated characters appear more lifelike, with gleaming eyes and shining hair that sets them apart from their animated versions. Others have blended their favorite Disney characters with other popular titles. Princesses taking on the personas of Pokemon and Sailor Moon characters?

Sailor Moon: 10 Characters Weaker Than Tuxedo Mask (And 16 Who Are Way Stronger)

Sailor Moon has brought iconic storylines, outfits, and characters into the world of anime, like Sailor Moon, Tuxedo Mask, Luna ,and Artemis.

It also featured some of the strongest women to ever grace the animated world. Many young girls look up to the Sailor Scouts and their adventures, as they save the galaxy from the forces of evil. This tradition of girl-power has only continued with the recent syndication of Sailor Moon Crystal.

However, just as iconically, Sailor Moon's love interest, Tuxedo Mask, is known for his weaknesses. While encouraging and brave, the masked hero plays damsel in distress far more often than anyone else on the show. It's one of the earliest, most popular version of flipping the popular hero trope on its head.

Tuxedo Mask isn't useless, though, despite the fact that he's become a popular meme online because of this. There are several characters weaker than him

Sailor Moon: 21 Things About Artemis And Luna That Make No Sense

Sailor Moon is one of the most popular animes to ever exist, and it's two cat guardians, Luna and Artemis, are part of the reason why.

While the joy, hope, determination, and spirits of the young Sailor Scouts inspire fans, the cat duo lead the way. Without their feline friends, the group never would have succeeded as much as they did.

Also, of course, who can resist a furry companion?

The Sailor Scouts go through a lot of hardships and their cats are what guide their way. Luna and Artemis give advice, tools, information, support, and friendship.

They follow the scouts through their entire journey and make them better heroes along the way. While a cat isn't the first mentor one would think of, in Sailor Moon, they fit just right.

However, the beloved Luna and Artemis do have their flaws. Some of the things about them are incredibly cryptic,

Sailor Moon: 20 Powers Only True Fans Know The Sailor Senshi Had (And 10 Weaknesses)

For decades fans have watched Sailor Moon and both her Inner Senshi (named for the planets closest to our sun) and Outer Senshi (named for the planets farthest away) battle the forces of evil on manga pages and on the screen.

In the Sailor Moon franchise, it’s the title character who gets the most power ups and exhibits the most variety in her abilities. This doesn’t mean that her Sailor Senshi are left out in the cold, however.

The Sailor Senshi have energy based attacks just like Sailor Moon does. The majority of what fans see them do in the manga and the anime involves these energy based attacks and hand-to-hand combat. They also each have some specialized skills.

Sailor Venus, as the leader of the Inner Senshi and the one who doubles for the Moon Princess if necessary, has powers the other Inner Senshi do not.

Sailor Moon: 10 Characters More Powerful Than Fans Thought (And 10 Who Are Even Weaker)

Sailor Moon heralded the beginning of the magical girl era of manga and anime. Over the years, plenty of books and shows have created characters that far surpass the abilities of Sailor Moon and her Sailor Scouts, despite many fans thinking that Sailor Moon herself might have been overpowered in her original stories.

So much focus is placed on just how much Sailor Moon can do with her power of love and forgiveness that sometimes the powers of her supporting characters went overlooked.

Sailor Moon might have got all of the attention, but her Sailor Scouts also had a variety of abilities that made them even better equipped to handle a fight than fans might have believed. Despite Sailor Mercury being used for defensive purposes, she packed one heck of a punch, for example.

Likewise, many of Sailor Moon’s villains were marked as easy defeats simply because Sailor Moon’s devotion to her friends,

Sailor Moon: 20 Things Only True Fans Know About Sailor Mars and Tuxedo Mask's Relationship

Sailor Moon is one of the most beloved and iconic animes ever to exist. It has spawned several dubs, new series, movies, a musical, toys, and more. It was a saga to rock a generation.

One of the most iconic parts of Sailor Moon is the ultimate pairing of Sailor Moon herself and Tuxedo Mask, her prince and partner in love and heroism. Beyond their alter egos, these characters are known as Usagi and Mamoru in the Japanese versions, and Serena and Darien in the English versions. They are a power couple for the ages.

Relationships in general are a very important part of the series, exemplifying the bonds between people and what they will do for love. Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask are the epicenter, but they are not the only ones.

Before Usagi and Mamoru, there was another relationship that the tall man partook in. Mamoru once was

13 Characters Stronger Than Sailor Moon (And 12 Who Are Way Weaker), Ranked

Sailor Moon is one of the most popular franchises in the history of anime and was one of the key factors in popularizing the genre in the West.

Its reach even goes far beyond the original anime and the manga it was based on, extending into stage musicals, live-action adaptations and all kinds of merchandise, and its presence in pop culture is still powerfully felt today, thanks in part to the remake of the original series known as Sailor Moon Crystal.

With a franchise as long-running and beloved as Sailor Moon, it’s no surprise that it's filled to the brim with memorable and beloved characters, such as the title character herself, the titular Sailor Moon.

Despite her name being in the marquee, though, Sailor Moon is far from the series’ most powerful character, and in this list, we’re hoping to address the characters that leave Sailor Moon in

Here's The Sailor Moon Theme Song Played On Traditional Japanese Instruments

I remember getting in trouble when I was in grade school for watching Sailor Moon at my friend's grandma's house. To this day I'm not entirely sure if she thought it was sexually suggestive and pornographic, or she was just an older Midwestern woman who thought the show was meant to corrupt our young and impressionable minds into wearing dresses. In either case I haven't watched a lot of the anime since, but do remember the theme song being an absolute banger. This video (via Kotaku) of the theme song being played by people proficient with Japanese instruments proves my point well enough, so check it out below:

This week, Netflix revealed a new upcoming original series, and it might just have you quivering in your stilettos. According to the trailer's official description, Super Drags tells of three drag-tastic superheroes who "tighten up their corsets and transform into the baddest Super Drags in town, ready to combat shade and rescue the world's glitter from the evil villains."

20 Sailor Moon Fan Designs Better Than What We Got

The <strong><em>Sailor Moon</em></strong> franchise is gargantuan, to say the very least. In the west, the original dub of the animated adaptation nearly single-handedly started the anime obsession across the hemisphere, cementing the cultural significance of the series, and the rest of Japan’s animated exports for the foreseeable future.

The movement that started with <em>Sailor Moon</em> was brought to the finish line by <em>Dragon Ball Z,</em> and the combined one-two animated punches of both series made sure that their footprints in the minds of children of all ages would last forever.

Like all shows with significant fan populations, <em>Sailor Moon</em> has a dedicated fanbase that continues to reminisce, speculate and feverishly discuss their beloved franchise daily.

Also like all shows with significant fan populations, there’s an enormous and varied amount of fan art created in honor of the manga and show.

Series creator Naoko Takeuchi’s original designs are beautiful to behold.

April 2018 marks the 20th anniversary of Shinichiro Watanabe’s anime series Cowboy Bebop.

RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars 3: 9 Favorite Moments From "The B*tchelor"

  • TVfanatic
We're all searching for love in this crazy dramatic world. But, in the case of RuPaul's Drag Race All Stars Season 3 Episode 3, we needed a major break from that reality and just make fun of the dating contestants we see on reality TV.

The queens assumed the role of a contestant on "The B*tchelor," a parody and nod to The Bachelor/The Bachelorette franchise. They whipped out their comedy skills to win the heart of Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman (he plays Jay on Lifetime's UnReal). We saw characters ranging from the virgin to the party girl to the needy girl.

In Milk's case, she overacted in her role as the stalker. She pushed the limits too much and was the queen kicked out by Kennedy Davenport!

Also featured in the hour was a runway wig challenge inspired by RuPaul's Drag Race Season 5 queen Roxxy Andrews, an argument broke out between Milk and Kennedy,
