Tsukino Usagi is a 14-year-old girl in junior high. She’s ditzy, whiny, and a crybaby. She often flunks her tests, and she is always scolded by her family. However after a bad day, Usagi is surprised to encounter a black cat that can talk! The cat, Luna, grants Usagi the power to transform into Sailor Moon, a fighter who is to save the world against the Dark Kingdom and its evil ruler, Queen Beryl. Of course, Usagi can’t do it alone, and there are others who will help her on the way… – My Anime List

Sailor Moon IS one of the better series to come out of Japan in the last decade. It truly deserves its popularity. It appeals on such a wide level that a family can sit down to watch the show, and all can find something to enjoy in it. Although the music in the North American dub is flat, unoriginal, and basically standard kiddie fare (read HOKEY), and the cringeworthy “Sailor Says” segments seem to be conjured out from nowhere to pass the show off as educational, it IS educational, but through the interactions between the characters rather than a 30-second blurb about crossing the street without looking. At its heart, Sailormoon is the story of a girl striving for the balance between duty and life itself. But it loses itself in the process. The real tragedy of Usagi is that, quite possibly, her fans love her too much. The series is suffering backlash it really doesn’t deserve, because the quality of the later series really does not compare to the first two seasons. And limiting anime fandom to only this show, as so many Moonies do, is a disservice to the entire medium. Sailormoon is not the be-all, end-all of anime, as so many want to believe. Funny enough, maybe it could’ve been, if it hadn’t been so popular.
I love this anime/manga this is a real classic anime that you should watch, i’m a grow-up now but that doesn’t means i forget this series because thanks to this series i grew up!
My Anime List
Overall I can’t recommend this series enough. Every fan of anime should see this show at least once. I would love to give it a 10 rating but the lackluster action and sound bring it down from being perfect.
Sailor Moon is an AMAZING, HILARIOUS and ADDICTIVE show. Honestly don’t miss out on it, and don’t judge is so quickly. You might love it if you gave it a chance.
Make no mistake, Sailor Moon is a significantly flawed work. On balance, though, the series redeems itself with a disarming wit that belies its shallow appearance. Once past the introductory episodes, it transforms into a light-hearted romp that even has one or two emotional surprises up its sleeve, and is just bizarrely charming. The simplistic presentation makes it perfect for children and young teens, but with its strong cast and self-deprecating humour, I also recommend this to adults looking for something undemanding but satisfying.
