Usagi Tsukino is an average 14 year old girl until she meets a talking cat named Luna, who tells her that she is destined to become a magical sailor guardian and fight evil. Usagi is given the name Sailor Moon, and with Luna’s help, seeks out the other girls that will make up her team, the Sailor Scouts. Together, the scouts are supposed to search for the reincarnated royalty of the now destroyed moon kingdom, Princess Serenity, and a magical item known as the Legendary Silver Crystal. Usagi’s first transformation into Sailor Moon doesn’t go so smoothly, but she is helped by a mysterious and dapper young man called Tuxedo Mask. Even with Tuxedo Mask’s help, evil runs rampant in the streets of Japan, hiding under innocent guises, and it is up to Sailor Moon and the other Sailor Scouts to protect the earth. However, Usagi still wants to live normally, like playing videogames, eating junk food, hanging out with friends, and possibly falling in love. What’s a magical girl to do?
