Hannah Conlon i do not understand why people like this book soo much care to comment please do. the cats scare me .

Anki Well, I can only speak for myself, and I came to the whole Sailor Moon thing rather late, given my age. But here goes....

When Sailor Moon came out in the USA (first as the animated series, later as the manga) there hadn't really been anything like it on American television prior to that. It was new and exciting, with catchy theme songs and fun costumes and bright colours.

Then with the manga...again, Sailor Moon was one of the first series out there in the USA that really targeted the female comic-reading audience. That doesn't mean only girls read the manga or watched the show--far from it--but it tapped into something that hadn't really been touched prior to that.

Now we're getting a new release, with a better translation and unflipped art and the original character's just a huge nostalgia trip plus a chance to introduce new readers to the series. Yeah, it may be a bit silly at parts, but it's an endearing silliness that makes everything in life seem much more possible and doable.

Hannah Conlon OMG I hate bleach too

Eleanor Naoko even comments that her artwork was not the best. She has on many occasions scolded her younger self about her drawing anatomy. That aside the series was big and huge because it was the first time in the 90's kids got to see the girl routinely saving the guy.
In the manga it is also very cool cause you watch the main character go from a crybaby to a hero. Yeah she's still a bit goofy but she really does change and mature throughout the course of the series. It's a Magical Girls series, and the old school lighthearted kind. You can be assured (at least in the TV show)that everything will turn out okay. That being said if you honestly don't like the series don't read it there are plenty of other series out there for you! I know a lot of younger people who just don't care for it and others who swear by it. I however am a Moonie for life my kids and wife will be forced to watch this crap on holidays and special events till the day I die.

Hannah Conlon Thank you

Jenn I think the pull of Sailor Moon is that you see a change in the character from this little girl who doesn't want more in life than a boyfriend to one who wants to protect the world She learns to see there is more to life than she once thought. I fell in love with Sailor Moon because it was one of few shows I found when i was younger where the main hero was a girl or a group of girls. I used to picture myself as one of the Sailor Scouts. Now that I am older and know there are other anime.manga with strong female leads I still enjoy Sailor Moon for that fact. I like Magical GIrl series along with a bunch of others.

Mitsuki Yoruichi I loved the entire story from beginning to end. Takeuchi-san.... wrote very well. And the art added to it. I was in so much awe reading the manga. I cried when I finished it but I will say that is how a writer ends a manga. I loved it. I've been a fan of Takeuchi-san since they aired the series. She was an inspiration and so was Sailor Moon.

Summer SSS I think it's also just a really fun read.

Well there is love and fantasy wrapped together.Even though most of animes have unrealistic details,sailor moon is more ''girly'' and kawaii than others.Thats why lots of people love watching it.That is my opinion though.Also Sailor Moon was first created back in 1992,there is something that attracts people about it.Sailor Moon built our beloved childhood and our dreams.That is why i love it!!And about cats,Luna and Artemis,they are the smartest animals so don't try to offend them lmao.
