A widely-popularised nationwide search assembled a cast of unknowns for the main characters, for many of whom this was their first big acting gig. While the quality of the ConspicuousCG, a few [[PeopleInRubberSuits rubber-suit monsters]] and many combat scenes that resembled dancing more than fighting (a style derogatorily referred to as "Ballet-Fu") expose its uncertain beginnings, all of the staff- from the actors to the CGI artists- gradually grow accustomed to their roles and [[GrowingTheBeard produce a slow but smooth improvement in the show over time]].

Originally broadcast in Japan between October 2003 and October 2004, ''Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon'' was a live-action {{Tokusatsu}} re-imagining of the original ''Manga/SailorMoon'' manga, announced to coincide with the franchise's 10th anniversary. It ran for 49 episodes, plus two [[TheResolutionWillNotBeTelevised direct-to-dvd bonus acts]] that formed a prequel and epilogue. Although it shares the same name as the original anime (''Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon''), it is commonly referred to as "Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon" to distinguish it from other works. (The original translations of the original anime used "Senshi" as Soldier. The current translations of both the new and old anime and manga uses "Guardian".)

** Minako makes it a point to chide Rei for not awakening her powers and gives her a CoolAndUnusualPunishment to help, especially since according to her Rei is the Senshi leader. Minako later reveals she's the real leader, much to Rei's chagrin. Later on, [[spoiler:Minako accidentally reveals that her powers haven't awakened, and Rei has to rescue her from a youma.]]
* JailBaitWait: Despite the legal age of consent being thirteen in Japan, Mamoru waits several years before [[spoiler:he and Usagi get married.]] Motoki does the same.

** Rei calls out Minako for her IWorkAlone attitude, especially when Minako tells her that she is the leader of the Senshi, when it turns out that Minako is the real leader and was leading on Rei.
** Sailor Luna chides Mako for not going on a "proper date" with Motoki, since Mako believes that it's better to be alone and though she likes Motoki she doesn't want to pursue a relationship with him.
