With this setences intorduces Tsukino Usagi in the first few episodes of the first season of Sailor Moon mostly. Often there is a similar quotation in the following four seasons to give a look back to the previous seasons.

"Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon“ was bring into being by Naoko Takeuchi and is on of the most successful and well-known manga/anime. The manga series was published for the first time in 1992 in the magazine Nakayoshi from Kodansha and was brought out as an anime from Toei Animation, with five seasons on the whole, in the same year. Today the manga has get the third new edition in Japan and a new anime with the title “Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon Crystal”, which story is more like in the manga, was produced in 2014. The focus of the story is the life of Tsukino Usagi and her friends, who she gets and who fight for love and justice against the evil with the power of the planets and their elements.

The warriors Sailor Mercury, Sailor Mars, Sailor Jupiter and Sailor Venus join Sailor Moon, which then are known as the Inner Senshi team. Before Sailor Moon gets the support of the other four Sailor warriors, the mysterious Texuedo Mask comes always to her help. In further course of the story there are Sailor Chibi Moon, Sailor Pluto, Sailor Uranus and Sailor Saturn, which together are the Outer Senshi team, whilst the fan base is not sure whether Sailor Chibi Moon, if she realy is a member of the Senshi team because she represents the moon, too. Nevertheless, Naoko has not enough women power with the ten Sailor warriors and so Sailor Star Fighter, Sailor Star Healer, Sailor Star Maker appear – the Sailor Starlight team!

However, who thinks, the story of Sailor Moon is simple, is wrong. With children’s eyes you can see strong warriors, with powers which you would like to have by yourself, who fight against the evil in the world. But the first impression misleads! If you take a look at the series from another perspective, you can see a complex story, which always takes place in different space-time-continuums. Every Sailor warrior has her own story, her own mythology, which often based on Roman Greek, Japanese, even on the Egyptian culture. The astrology is an important part, too, because every planet a symbol is allocated besides the elements, which oft is the same as the asterisk of the respective warrior.

So you travel with the Sailor warriors in the already past Silver Millenium, where you get to know Princess Serenity, Prince Endymion and the “Little Lady”, in the future Crystal Tokyo, which is ruled by Neo Queen Serenity and King Endymion, and see how the weak warriors from the beginning become strong self-confident fighters.

Come to the world of Sailor Moon!
