What is Sailor Moon about

Sailor Moon is a story about a girl named Usagi Tsukino. Her name translates to “moon rabbit”, which is related to the traditional Japanese tale about a rabbit being on the moon. She's a bit clumsy and cries easily, but she's also very brave and kind. Using her Cosmic Heart Compact and lipstick, she transforms into the Guardian of Love and Justice, Sailor Moon, and fights against bad guys to protect the Earth.


This kawaii anime series is full of love and friendship! Usagi has friends called the “Sailor Senshi” or “Sailor Scouts,” and together, they fight for justice. There’s also a bit of romance between Usagi and Tuxedo Mask, a man who helps her in battles. It's a story about believing in yourself and standing up for what's right, even when things get tough.



When did Sailor Moon come out

Sailor Moon started as a manga series in 1991 and aired on TV in 1992. It was brought to life by Naoko Takeuchi, a talented artist from Japan. She both wrote the story and drew the pictures for the manga series.

“In the name of the moon, I’ll punish you!”

Following its success in the manga, the series turned into an animated TV show and has since been capturing the hearts of fans worldwide!



Is Sailor Moon a princess

Sailor Moon is both a princess and a queen! She is the reincarnation of Princess Serenity, the Moon Princess of the Silver Millennium. This means she's the heir to the Moon Kingdom. Also, in the later part of the series, it’s revealed that Sailor Moon will become Neo-Queen Serenity, the queen of a new Silver Millennium called Crystal Tokyo.



What god is Sailor Moon

The anime is inspired by Greek mythology and Japanese folklore, so you’ll find plenty of references to Greek gods and goddesses throughout the story. But Sailor Moon isn’t exactly a god. She’s just often linked to moon goddesses like Selene and Artemis because she embodies the moon’s mystical and powerful qualities.



Don’t get fooled by Sailor Moon’s cute looks – she’s super strong! In fact, she’s so powerful that her strength can be the same level as a god. Her powers mainly come from the Sailor Moon Crystal. Among the Sailor Senshi, she’s the strongest, and her special move is so strong that it can shake the whole Solar System!

At the start of this kawaii series, Sailor Moon or Usagi is 14 years old. By the end of the manga, she turns 22. Due to the power of the Sailor Moon crystal, Usagi stopped aging and stayed looking like a young adult forever, always being 22 years old!



Who is the oldest Sailor Moon

Setsuna is the oldest among the Sailor Scouts. As Sailor Pluto, it's hinted that she's been around for centuries, even before the Moon Kingdom fell. Even though she looks petite and cute, she’s actually over 900 years old! But when she was reborn as Setsuna, she portrayed a 20-something young lady.



Sailor Moon’s cat is a girl! In Sailor Moon S The Movie, Luna wished to be a human to be with Kakeru, the man she loves. Sailor Moon used the Silver Crystal to transform Luna, and the black cat became a woman named Princess Kaguya. She’s stille recognizable by the golden crescent on her forehead.



How old are Sailor Moon and her boyfriend

At the beginning of the manga, Usagi is 14 years old, and Mamoru is 16. But in the anime version, the writers made Mamoru 18 years old, which makes the gap between their ages even bigger. Some fans wonder if this big age difference is okay since Usagi is pretty young. But if we remember that they were also in love in their past lives, maybe the age difference isn't such a big deal after all!



Not to spoil the story, but we think it’s pretty obvious that Mamoru is fated to end up with Usagi (aka Sailor Moon). At the end of the manga series, the two got married and became the king and queen of the Moon Kingdom, thus starting the second era of the Silver Millennium. How old was Sailor Moon when she got married? She was 21!



Sailor Moon kids

Did you know that Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask have two kids? In another universe, that is. In a special short feature called Parallel Sailor Moon from 1999, there’s an alternate Sailor Moon Universe where Sailor Moon has a second daughter named Kousagi Tsukino. So, in the main story, Chibiusa is the only daughter, but in this special story, she has a sister!



It wasn’t shown in the anime series, but in the Sailor Moon manga and musicals, Sailor Pluto's love interest is hinted to be King Endymion. He is the past life of Mamoru.

"King, your face so close to mine. Don't look at me like that."

You can see hints of her feelings in the way she acts around him, like blushing when he's nearby or smiling (Which she rarely does!) when he shows concern for her. However, it’s a sad situation that makes Sailor Pluto feel even more alone because King Endymion doesn’t feel the same way.



Sailor Mars boyfriend

Sailor Mars, whose real name is Rei Hino, once had a short relationship with Mamoru before he got together with Usagi. They started dating before everyone remembered their past lives. But when Rei realized that Mamoru was really in love with Usagi, she decided to step back and not interfere. She cared about Mamoru but she had extreme respect and loyalty for Sailor Moon, so she let the two be together.



Sailor Moon manga

Sailor Moon started as a magical girl manga series. In Japan, it's called Bishōjo Senshi Sērā Mūn (美少女戦士セーラームーン), which means Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon. This awesome comic was in a magazine called Nakayoshi from February 1992 to March 1997. Imagine, there are 18 books in the old version, 12 books in the new one, and 10 books in the complete set! That's a lot of exciting adventures with Sailor Moon and her friends!



It’s been decades since the Sailor Moon anime series was aired on TV, but the good news is, you can watch it online! The series is available on streaming platforms like Hulu, Crunchyroll, or Netflix, depending on your region. You can even look for it on YouTube!


Where to watch Sailor Moon

How many Sailor Moon episodes are there? Well, Sailor Moon aired for five years, so get ready to watch a lot! The number of episodes varies depending on which season you’re watching. Overall, there are 200 episodes in the original series, including the original Sailor Moon, Sailor Moon R, Sailor Moon S, Sailor Moon Super S, Sailor Moon Stars, and even a new version called Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal.



Sailor Moon movies

As if 200 episodes aren’t enough, Sailor Moon was also made into animated movies! There are seven movies in total — Sailor Moon R: The Movie, Sailor Moon S: The Movie, Sailor Moon Super S: The Movie, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Eternal (Parts 1 and 2), and Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Cosmos (Parts 1 and 2). The older movies are extra adventures and stories while the more recent ones are exciting adaptations of the manga.



Sailor Moon live action

In Sailor Moon’s decades-long history, a special effects live-action drama version aired from October 2003 to September 2004. This show had a unique story based on the first part of the original manga. It showed the adventures of the Sailor Guardians and the Four Heavenly Kings as they battled over Serenity and Endymion's forbidden love.


There were some new characters like Sailor Luna, and there was even an evil Sailor Mercury! The characters' personalities were made more realistic, and their hair colors changed when they transformed. It was like watching Sailor Moon come to life!



Sailor Moon musical

Dance and sing along with the Sailor Senshi in Sailor Moon’s musical series! Musical shows about our favorite cosmic superheroes were produced from 1993 to 2017. These were based on the anime and the original manga. It was so cool seeing Sailor Moon and her friends on stage!


And the fun doesn’t stop there! Both Sailor Moon and Japanese pop fans are excited about the special collaboration between the kawaii series and popular Japanese Idol group Nogizaka 46. This will be the fifth generation of Nogizaka girls to grace the stage for a live Sailor Moon musical in Tokyo!



Sailor Moon game

There are lots of video games based on this kawaii series, and they're so exciting! One game series called Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon is all about our favorite manga characters. It was super popular, and there were tons of games for different game systems like PC, Game Boy, and Computer.


Sailor Moon game boy

Another game is called Sailor Moon, and it continues the story of the Black Moon Arc. You can play it on your personal computer, but there’s also a Game Boy version. Then, there's the Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon R, a combination of an action game and an adventure game where you can explore and fight bad guys.


Sailor Moon Puyo Puyo

Aside from these original Sailor Moon video games, you can also enjoy playing mobile games that feature the kawaii characters. The Sailor Senshi joined the ranks of Monster Strike heroes. In this game, defeated monsters drop Sailor Moon prizes. Another mobile game featuring the Sailor Moon characters is Puyo Puyo Quest. The Sailor Senshi look super cute as younger versions of themselves!



Sailor Moon classic concert

The Sailor Moon soundtrack has a special place in the hearts of kawaii fans. One example is the catchy theme song “Moonlight Densetsu.” Due to the fans’ love for Sailor Moon’s OST, its 25th anniversary was celebrated with a concert and a tribute album.


Sailor Moon classic concert

The Sailor Moon 25th Anniversary Commemorative Classic Concert was held at the Tokyo Metropolitan Theater, where famous musicians and the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra played orchestra versions of the songs from the anime. And guess what? Mitsuishi Kotono, the voice of Sailor Moon herself, even sang some of the songs!

Sailor Moon album

Plus, there's a tribute album called Bishojo Senshi Sailor Moon: The 25th Anniversary Memorial Tribute. It's packed with Sailor Moon songs performed by top Japanese artists as homage to the long-standing series. These include SILENT SIREN, Etsuko Yakushimaru, and LiSA, who all love Sailor Moon just like us!


Sailor Moon prism on ice

Fans got a chance to watch the Sailor Scouts glide across the ice in the amazing Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Prism On Ice show! Evgenia Medvedeva, a famous figure skater from Russia, dazzled as Sailor Moon herself. Other world-famous skaters played characters like Tuxedo Mask and the Sailor Scouts too. But that's not all— ANZA, who played Sailor Moon in the musical version, also joined as Queen Serenity.


Back in 2017, Evgenia Medvedeva, who competed in South Korea as an Olympic figure skater, performed an exhibition routine from Sailor Moon. She called it “Moonlight Densetsu,” the same title as the anime’s theme song. She’s both a queen on the ice and a die-hard fan of Sailor Moon, so we believe getting the role for the Sailor Moon ice skating show is well-deserved.



Yes, Sailor Moon is super popular all around the world! In the US, people started falling in love with it after the TV show aired there in 1995. It was even published in magazines and books, although it went out of print for a while. But guess what? In the early 2000s, a new edition was published, and it became a big hit again!


Sailor Moon popular

Even in neighboring Asian countries like South Korea, Sailor Moon was translated and produced as an anime. It’s so popular that although it’s considered a ’90s anime show, scene shots are still used in memes and Sailor Moon merchandise continues to sell hotcakes. And it’s not just the anime – even the manga has sold over 46 million copies worldwide!
