Usagi Tsukino is an average student and crybaby klutz who constantly scores low on her tests. Unexpectedly, her humdrum life is turned upside down when she saves a cat with a crescent moon on its head from danger. The cat, named Luna, later reveals that their meeting was not an accident: Usagi is destined to become Sailor Moon, a planetary guardian with the power to protect the Earth. Given a special brooch that allows her to transform, she must use her new powers to save the city from evil energy-stealing monsters sent by the malevolent Queen Beryl of the Dark Kingdom.

But getting accustomed to her powers and fighting villains are not the only things she has to worry about. She must find the lost princess of the Moon Kingdom, the other Sailor Guardians, and the Legendary Silver Crystal in order to save the planet from destruction.

The series won the 1992 Animage's Anime Grand Prix Award.

I'll admit, I kind of wrote off Sailor Moon as something that just wasn't for me, a 90s anime that I could just leave in the rear view mirror, but it appears I was missing out.

This was sincerely a lot more fun than I expected, especially given how much filler there was in this series. Sure, most of that filler isn't particular interesting and it is very obvious that the series is just spinning its wheels for a while, buts ome of my favorite moments were pure filler, with episode 31 being one of the stand-out best of the series I'd put alongside or even ...

Mixed Feelings
Sailor Moon (1992-1997)

I decided to take a look at this classic, given how iconic it is, being one of the benchmarks in the world, and what can I say?
Sailor Moon adds the tropes of your typical shoujo series, with a somewhat silly, smiling, lovesick protagonist, good with everyone because yes but despite, with the passing of the episodes you grow fond of her, like her friends Ami, Rei, Makoto, Minako, Haruka, Michiru, Setsuna and Hotaru
Sailor Moon is a phenomenon among Mahou-Shoujo and popular culture in general, having a wide cast of characters with rich personalities and making reference to some social issues, having representation of ...

It all started when i clicked on the "Randomize!" for one of 2021's AWC entries and got Sailor Moon S (The Third Season) and had to see the first ones. After finishing the first season, i wanted to say some things...
You see, i dont skip episodes, fillers or not... If an Anime has 46 episodes on its MAL page, it has 46. And thats wheres Sailor Moon has some trouble with MY PARTICULAR TASTE.

Let me explain: Imagine you're on a bus, but the driver keeps hitting the brakes when theres no need. Well, Thats a Filler... a lot of "old" animes has a lot ...
