Let's not kid ourselves the dubbed Sailor Moon was pretty bad, but aside from the differing story and the overly obnoxious voice cast, it still had a decent story. The girl who seemed normal (hates school, loves food, loves video games) all of a sudden has a big change in her life. She meets her future husband, and find out the he is the meanie making fun of her then out of nowhere she meet her future child! What is wrong with this world! The story didn't get a perfect 10 because the cast is oblivious! Anytime they transform, and are around people they know, no one notices! Please watch the live action movie, as cheesy as it is the characters don't look the same when they transform.
The characters are pretty awesome. The scouts make up almost every type of girl. The jock (Jupiter), the religous one (Mars), the actress (Venus), the brains (Mercury), and the lazy one (Moon). Of course in the later seasons there are more scouts but this review is for the first season.
As for the animation it was done well for the time. There were a few slip ups, but that is understandable for the time. Just wait until the new one comes out this year. Oh about that don't watch the 2013 Sailor Moon without watching all of the old Sailor Moon. This includes stars!!!!!
Though my moverall rating is a 6 Sailor Moon is one of the best animes of all time, and my personal favorite. So if you are into the magical girl series YOU MUST WATCH THIS!
