If you aren’t familiar with Sailor Moon, where have you been in the last two decades or so? Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon tells the story of a young girl named Usagi Tsukino (月野 うさぎ). Her lazy, crybaby ways disappear the moment she transforms into Sailor Moon (セーラームーン). Together with her friends and fellow Sailor Senshi (セーラー戦士), Sailor Mercury (セーラーマーキュリー), Sailor Mars (セーラーマーズ), Sailor Jupiter (セーラージュピター) and Sailor Venus (セーラーヴィーナス), they save and defend Earth against alien threats.
