Hang on. I’m not talking about the American dubbed version where they were ‘cousins.’ No no, in Japan they were girlfriends. And as of 2017, in the American re-release, they are again girlfriends.
Okay, ready? Back in the original Sailor Moon, Tsukino Usagi, a 14-year-old young schoolgirl, was given the ability to transform into Sailor Moon by the talking cat, Luna. Sailor Moon had to locate all the moon princesses so that together they can battle the forces of the evil Dark Kingdom, led by Queen Beryl. There are monsters, Youma, who sap energy from humans and feed it to the evil Queen Metaria. There’s also a plot about a Silver Crystal, a gem capable of limitless power.
Now, for reasons known only to Japanese TV, they don’t do a lot of multi-seasons with Anime. They do new shows for each season. The problem here is that the show is basically “Sailor Moon” overall, with each season having it’s own title. We lumped it all together as one show.
