Sailor Moon is based on a Japanese shojo manga series written and illustrated by Naoko Takeuchi, which became immensely popular in its time, especially when it received what would become one of the 90s' most successful anime.

In this iconic anime and manga, we follow a romantic, somewhat lazy 14-year-old girl, Usagi Tsukino, who leads a relatively normal life.

This is about to change when Usagi encounters Luna, a talking cat, and receives a brooch that allows her to transform into Sailor Moon: a legendary warrior destined to save the world from evil forces.

As the story progresses, Usagi is joined by an increasing number of other girls from different walks of life, who all become Sailor soldiers and help her in her mission.

Sailor Moon is a long ride, with many episodes and several fillers, but we ensure that it's a wild, fun, nostalgic, and somewhat romantic ride you should try at least once!
