The logo for Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon.

Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, commonly referred to as PGSM by fans, is a Toei production which includes a 49-part live-action television series (which aired every weekend morning on the Japanese CBC/TBS network, in collaboration with local stations throughout the country, from October 2003 to September 2004) as well as two extra parts first released only on DVD/VHS after the series ended. It also has two related shows released on different media, a dance instruction VHS, a radio program series, a number of children's mascot stage shows, numerous albums, TV series DVDs, printed publications, toys, licensed household products and stationery, and even some public service banners. This sentai-flavored tokusatsu drama series was based upon the first manga story arc, and notably featured Keiko Han as Luna, revisiting her role from the anime series. Both the manga and anime series were immensely popular in the 90s.

Naoko Takeuchi, the creator of Sailor Moon, was involved in the production throughout the series, including the casting of main roles, the design of new characters, and the present of jackets for the starring actresses during winter shooting. Some of the actresses starring (and, for some, debuting) in the series, most notably Keiko Kitagawa, have become well known since the series ended with film roles, TV appearances, idol products, etc.

The series has never been aired outside Japan, although fansubs of it (as well as its non-TV/related shows) on the internet are commonplace, and audio-visual products (and other merchandise) of the work are also readily available for sale on the internet. Information is also available at three official websites, complemented by numerous fansites all over the world.

SummaryEdit

Usagi Tsukino was an ordinary teenage girl until she encountered a talking plush cat named Luna and discovered that she was a Sailor Senshi, destined to protect the Princess and the world from the evil forces of the Dark Kingdom. As Sailor Moon she fights, later joined by Sailor Mercury, Sailor Mars, Sailor Jupiter, Sailor Venus, and Sailor Luna, and occasionally helped by the mysterious Tuxedo Mask. Eventually Usagi discovers that she is the Princess they were all searching for, the reborn heir to the ancient moon kingdom and wielder of the Silver Crystal.

The Senshi must deal with their civilian lives and relationships, fight the minions of Queen Beryl, and come to terms with their past lives and how they impact the present day. Their experiences will leave them forever changed, and alter the destiny of the Earth forever.

TriviaEdit

  • Around the time of the series' airing, Naoko Takeuchi published a re-edited and partially rewritten new edition of the manga series (including Codename: Sailor V), complete with brand new covers.
  • The series adopts a newly designed title logo, which does not use the long-established typeface of the old ones used in the anime and the original edition of the manga. The new edition of the manga adopts the new logo (and Codename: Sailor V uses a modified version of the new logo), so does the current official Sailor Moon website (the front page uses a heavily modified version of the new logo, and the inside pages use the exact new logo).
  • The official English title of the series ("Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon") is different from that of the anime and the original edition of the manga (which was "Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon"). The new edition of the manga and the current official Sailor Moon website adopt the new English title.
  • The episode titles were listed in the Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Memorial Book, though they were never shown in the episodes themselves.
