“Fighting evil by moonlight, winning love by daylight, never running from a real fight, she is the one named Sailor Moon”
If you don’t like anime and aren’t in touch with your inner child then you can stop reading right now because this post is all about the the award winning (I don’t think it’s won any awards) children’s (its not just for kids) anime show Sailor Moon. Based off a wildly popular and successful manga Sailor Moon is about Usagi – a 16 year old teenage girl who is essentially a mess. She’s always eating, always sleeping and constantly doing bad/or late for school.. sounds like me now if school was work.
I am getting excited and I’ve barely even written anything so I’ll try and keep this short. The Sailor Scouts led by Sailor Moon are essentially guardians of the universe, each planet has it representation with Sailor Moon being the leader. They each have a different power based more or less on what you would think of the plants, so Sailor Mars is fire, Jupiter is lighting, Mercury is bubbles, Venus is some “Venus Blast” (whatever that is) and later on Uranus and Saturn come in. Queen Serenity is Sailor Moons mother and they all used to live on the moon kingdom together until some evil force destroyed them. Luna and Artemis are the two talking cat guardians of the Sailor Scouts and live on Earth with them.
NOW BEFORE YOU START JUDGING ME FOR GOING SO HARD ON THIS CARTOON JUST REMEMBER THIS WAS WAS FAVORITE SHOW GROWING UP AND WE’RE IN REALLY TOUGH TIMES RIGHT NOW SO I NEED SOMETHING TO SMILE ABOUT.
Anyways, each season there’s a new challenge of monsters that they have to defeat, usually each season culminates with a movie (yes I have them on VHS). I also own Sailor moon socks, a keychain and have dressed up an undisclosed amount of times as Sailor Moon. At risk of going on and sounding like a total freak just watch it. Start with season 1, it’s on Hulu and you’re welcome for the joy that’s this will bring you.
