Welcome to The Sailor Senshi Page, a fan website dedicated to Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon
in all its incarnations: the original manga (comic) by Takeuchi Naoko; the Japanese anime by Toei
Animation, including the TV series and three movies; the live action Pretty Guardian Sailormoon
TV series; the Sailor Moon live action musicals (also known as "Seramyu"); and world dubs and
translations of the anime and manga. You can find detailed information, reviews, movie files and sound
clips, pictures and images, and plenty of other special features and articles on this website.
Sailor Moon is a magical girls series about Tsukino Usagi, a young, klutzy, crybaby girl, who is also
very naive and pure-hearted. One day, on her way to junior high school, Usagi comes across several boys
torturing a black cat and saves it. Later that day, she encounters the cat at her home. The black cat,
who can talk, introduces herself as Luna. Luna says that Usagi is one of the soldiers she has been
searching for; as a Sailor Soldier, Usagi's duty is to find the moon princess and to save the world from
the Dark Kingdom. Usagi, so Luna explains, is Sailor Moon. Usagi doesn't take this news seriously at
first, but she nevertheless cooperates and transforms into Sailor Moon, much to her shock. So begins her
adventures as the pretty sailor-suited soldier. In her new role as protector of Earth, Sailor Moon finds
allies in other Sailor Soldiers and in the mysterious Tuxedo Kamen (Tuxedo Mask), and she discovers secrets
about her own true identity.
