A Little Bit About Sailor MoonSailor Moon starts with an ordinary junior high school girl named Serena. On her way home from school one day, Serena finds a small black cat with a bandage on her forehead. When Serena removes the bandage, a small crescent moon can be seen on Luna's head. As it turns out this is a magical cat; she can talk and she tells Serena that she is to take her place in history and become the legendary Sailor Moon, destined to knock those baddies right on their sorry behinds! WELL! That sounds mighty nice doesn't it? Serena doesn't think so at first, but in her first battle a strange, but devilishly handsome stranger calling himself Tuxedo Mask appears and helps her out. Serena manages to survive the first battle and she begins her quest to revive the other Sailor Scouts and to find the Moon Princess.
Sailor Moon began broadcast in North America on September 11, 1995 or August 28 on YTV in Canada. In Japan Bandai produced it and DIC Entertainment produced the English language version. The series is a dub of the Japanese anime, which is called Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon, can usually be seen translated into Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon. Sailor Moon is based upon the manga created by Naoko Takeuchi. Sailor Moon, the manga, came after the manga Sailor V. In Japan the last episode to air was on February 8, 1997 and the last manga in March 1997.
In North America, DIC made 65 episodes available in 1995-1996 and 17 more episodes were dubbed mainly for Canadian release. They were first shown in the US long after their original run in Canada. The voice actors for Darien and Sailor Mars had left (or were fired) for these episodes. The addition of these 17 episodes took the series up to the Japanese episode 89 and the end of Sailor Moon R. DIC had a battle to decide whether or not they were to remove any and all references to Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune. It the end, they obviously opted to leave them in, but to make them appear as cousins.
In June 2002 Sailor Moon S and Sailor Moon Super S were dubbed by DIC and shown on Cartoon Network and later on YTV in Canada. The Sailor Moon movies were also first released on VHS and again later on DVD and shown on TV.
