Length: 30 min each episode/
"Tsukino Usagi" (Rabbit of the Moon) is a rather underachieving junior high school girl who gets low test grades, does poorly in sports, and is often late to class. She's also a very caring individual. When Usagi-chan sees some boys tormenting a black cat, she rescues the cat. The cat reappears later to thank Usagi and introduces herself as Luna. Usagi is frightened at seeing a talking cat, so Luna gives her a pretty broach. With the words "Moon Prism Power-Make Up!", the broach turns her into the superheroine Sailor Moon. Her job is to fight against the youma (demons) who appear to steal human energy. Unfortunately, Sailor Moon is still spectacularly incompetant at fighting youma. Fortunately, the mysterious Tuxedo Kamen appears to save her. Later, the appearance of the other Sailor Senshi (warriors) will help, since they are better at fighting than Sailor Moon is. Luna is also looking for her missing Moon Princess. This is a very funny series which enjoys massive popularity in Japan. Tidbits:
