First off, I titles this review Bishoujo Senshi SailorMoon because I am reviewing the sub, not the dub, Sailormoon. This is an anime about a teenage girl (yes again) named Usagi, that is pretty flighty, but finds out that she is a Senshi destined to protect earth from evil forces. Her cat, Luna, advises her and pushes her to take responsibility and give up having the life of a normal teenage girl. Later on, 4 more girls join her in her adventure. even later in the series there are 4 more senshi, but they mainly show up just for fighting.


Bishoujo Senshi SailorMoon Picture 1 This is a very long series. It has 200 episodes all together broken up into 5 series Sailormoon, Sailormoon R, Sailormoon S, Sailormoon SuperS, and SailorStars. It also has 3 movies and 2 specials. I'm not sure how much of it has gotten dubbed, but my advice is to stay away from it ;P The whole storyline in each of the series is pretty interesting; however, the storyline of each episode are basically cookie cut. In EVERY episode, Usagi or one of the senshi makes a friend and that friend gets attacked by random badguy of the day and the Senshi come to the rescue. I know this is starting to sound bad, but it's really pretty decent. The series gets much better after the first two series. Sailormoon S is my personal favorite. I don't know about other people, but this series really makes me care about the characters.


Bishoujo Senshi SailorMoon Picture 2 Usagi- She is the main character of the whole series. She's your typical anime teenage girl that loves to eat and does bad at school, and just likes to have fun.

Luna- She is the cat that finds Usagi and tells her that she is Sailormoon. She is a smart cat that can talk and even type on a computer. She helps Usagi find the rest of the senshi and instructs her about her enemies and how to fight them.

Mamoru- He is the hot guy of the series and starts out always picking on Usagi, and she is always yelling at him, but their relationship is so adorable, I love the scenes with them.

Ami- Ami is a super smart girl that get's transferred to Usagi's school where Usagi is the only one there that really befriends her. She always gets the highest scores and is quiet and pretty laid back. She one of the only girls in the series that always seems to have her head on her shoulders.

Rei- Rei goes to a different school all throught the series. She lives at a temple and takes care of her grandfather. She's a total smart ass and is always fighting with Usagi and spends the first half of the first series trying to make herself the leader of the group.

Makoto- Makoto gets transferred to Usagi's school as well and has the reputation of always getting into fights, again, Usagi is the only one to befriend her. Makoto is very confident and pushes Usagi to stand up for herself.

Minako- Minako is a lot like Usagi, they even look a lot alike except for different hairstyles. She used to be a star known as Sailor V and lived in England. She goes to a different school as well.

Artemis- He is Minako's cat advisor, and does the same kind of stuff for Minako that Luna does for Usagi.

There are a million more characters and about 10 different main badguys per season so i'll just leave them out ;)


The animation of the first two series isn't the best heh, I really like the look of the animation in SuperS and Stars. But overall it's just good animation, not anything really spectacular.

Voice Acting

I first saw this dubbed, and since it was the first anime had ever seen, it didn't seem too bad, but after I saw it subbed, there was a major difference, the subbed is so much more serious. and the whole role of Luna is changed. in the dub, Luna's voice is that of a stuff old british woman, in the sub her voice is much younger and her role changes to that of a friend rather than a babysitter. the dub voice acting is terrible, and sub is great!


I love the character in this series and how they interact. they really have a lot of emotion. also i love the villans in the S series and the outer senshi once they come along, i know i didn't mention them in this review, but they don't come about until the end of the third series really and i would have to give out a lot of spoilers. Perhaps I will write a seperate review for each series. let me know what you think.


Well, I kinda didn't like how predictable it was to know who was gonna get attacked by the badguy in each episode, but the overlaying storyline in the series saved that for me.
