Day 3 - Thirty Days of Anime

Day 3 - Sailor Moon

Is there anyone under 30 (or even 40) that has not heard of Sailor Moon? The original series ran in the 90's and has been credited as inspiring the TV series, Buffy The Vampire Slayer and a host of other "magical girls" anime.

A reboot of the series was released in 2014.

Sailor Moon is the story of teenage age named Usagi, who befriends Luna, a talking black cat. Luna gives Usagi a magical brooch enabling her to become Sailor Moon: a soldier destined to save Earth from the forces of evil.

Luna and Usagi assemble a team of fellow Sailor Soldiers to find their princess and the Silver Crystal. They encounter the studious Ami, who awakens as Sailor Mercury; Rei, a local shrine maiden who awakens as Sailor Mars; Makoto, a tall transfer student who awakens as Sailor Jupiter; and Minako, a young aspiring idol who awakens as Sailor Venus, accompanied by her talking feline companion Artemis. Additionally, they encounter Mamoru, a high-school student who assists them on occasion as Tuxedo Mask.
