This week’s Weekly Anime is the world renowned anime series, Sailor Moon.

I initially began watching Sailor Moon a year ago when I caught my sister watching it. Although Sailor Moon is fairly old and the art isn’t that of present day anime, I find that that’s the charm of the show.

The first season of Sailor Moon aired on Asahi Television at 7:00pm on Saturdays from March 7, 1992 to February 27, 1993. It consisted of 46 episodes.

Sailor Moon follows the life of Tsukino Usagi, an airhead high school student who’s a bit of a crybaby but an extremely loyal friend. In the first few episodes of the anime Usagi discovers that she and her group of friends are the legendary Sailor Guardians, who are direct descendants of an elite group of women whose main goals are to ward off the evil tactics of the Dark Kingdom.

Over the course of the series you’ll get to watch as Usagi encounters many enemies that will prove to be quite difficult for her to fight off at times. However, with the help of her friends and her legendary Moon Stick that helps her defeat villains, Usagi shows that she’s strong enough to overcome anything. For me, this show is the embodiment of showcasing girl power to young girls.

The Sailor Moon series has five seasons, three movies, and a manga of the same title that consists of 18 volumes.

In July 5, 2014 Toei Animation released a reboot of the Sailor Moon series entitled Sailor Moon Crystal. The anime follows the story line of the original anime while omitting certain parts to further the plot.

I haven’t viewed Sailor Moon Crystal yet but I hear it’s just as good as the original Sailor Moon so it is definitely on my must watch list!
