Known in Japan as ''Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon'' (and given the non-literal English title of ''[[AdjectiveNounFred Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon]]''), '''''Sailor Moon''''' is a multimedia franchise that fused the {{Sentai}} and MagicalGirl genres. The series started as a manga and was later adapted into an anime. Created by pharmacist-turned-manga author Creator/NaokoTakeuchi, ''Sailor Moon'' lasted for five seasons, three motion pictures, and a number of TV specials, becoming its own cottage industry in the process.

!!Works this franchise includes:

* ''Manga/SailorMoon'': What you're probably looking for. The MagicalGirl manga and anime from TheNineties.
* ''Manga/CodenameSailorV'': Features Minako as the title character before she was Sailor Venus. [[BroadStrokes Vaguely in continuity]] within different ''Sailor Moon'' adaptations, the manga started as a prototype then became a prequel to the original ''Sailor Moon.''
* ''Theatre/SeraMyu'': A series of musicals, often heavily deviating from the source material.
* ''VideoGame/SailorMoonAnotherStory'': A 1995 SNES RPG based on the first anime (but with manga elements), taking place after the S season.
* ''WesternAnimation/ToonMakersSailorMoon'': An aborted American live action/animation blend adaption by a company called Toon Makers.
* ''Series/PrettyGuardianSailorMoon'': A 2003 {{Toku}} live-action adaptation and retelling of the first major arc, with more obvious J-drama overtones.
* ''Anime/SailorMoonCrystal'': An ONA which began airing in July 2014, originally consisted of 26 episodes that cover the original and R arcs. This anime began as a faithful portrayal of the manga, but has progressively added its own spin to the story. A 3rd season is currently airing on television in Japan.
