"I am the Pretty Guardian who fights for love and for justice! I am Sailor Moon! And now, In the Name of the Moon, I will punish you!"

Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon is a long-running multimedia franchise that fused the Sentai and Magical Girl genres. The series started as Codename: Sailor V, a manga written by Naoko Takeuchi and published by Kodansha. When Toei Animation approached Takeuchi with a request to adapt it into an anime, Takeuchi thought the concept would work better as a show about a team and thus created the Sailor Moon manga which was serialized in Nakayoshi between 1991 and 1997 and received an anime adaption that ran alongside it. Due to the manga and anime being made at the same time and written by different people, the original 90's anime is only partially based on the manga. The series follows the adventures of a young schoolgirl Usagi Tsukino, who turns out to be the reincarnation of the titular ancient lunar warrior from the Moon Kingdom. The manga was soon adapted into one of the most popular anime productions ever made. Sailor Moon lasted for five seasons, three motion pictures, and a number of TV specials, becoming its own cottage industry in the process.
