Sailor Moon is an internationally popular anime franchise. The series first started off as a Shoujo manga in early 1992, created by Naoko Takeuchi. The manga was published in Kodansha’s Nakayoshi magazine, where it ran until 1997. Toei Animation produced an anime adaptation of the manga months after the manga was first introduced, running alongside the manga where it also ended in 1997. The series was split up into yearly seasons, with each new season having a different name. Since then, three films, a live stage production, live action TV series and a slew of video games were released.
