The history of Sailor Moon — the world’s best loved magical girl!
Since it first debuted as a manga in 1991, the iconic Sailor Moon series has been influencing generations of fans for 30 years. When Sailor Moon creator Naoko Takeuchi first came up with the concept of what would later become a hit series, she was inspired by her love for the Super Sentai series and astronomy. Once she proposed the idea to her editor, the theme of the girls wearing sailor uniforms was added, and together with her other influences, Takeuchi brought forth a series full of joy and beauty.
One year after the manga was first published, the very first Sailor Moon anime adaptation was broadcast in 1992. The anime is credited with the worldwide spread of the popularity of Sailor Moon, and many fans saw the themes featured in the show — girl power, beauty, friendship, and magic — as highly inspirational. With the variety of personalities exhibited by the Sailor Guardians themselves, it became easy for fans to relate to their favorite Guardian, leading to a unique connection between the fans and the series that you won’t find anywhere else.
The Sailor Moon 30th Anniversary Project
Loyal fans are in for a treat with the Sailor Moon 30th Anniversary Project! In addition to the debut of a new logo specifically made for this commemoration, the Sailor Moon series is teaming up with several brands in Japan to release the widest range of Sailor Moon merchandise that we’ve ever seen!
