Sailor Moon was originally created by Naoko Takeuchi for Nakayoshi magazine in 1991. More than 20 years later, Sailor Moon stands as one of the most influential shojo series ever created, popularizing the "magical girl" sub-genre and trope with fans all over the world. The original anime series -- both subbed and dubbed -- is currently available to stream on Hulu, as is the updated remake Sailor Moon Crystal. The original series synopsis is included below:


"Usagi Tsukino is a clumsy but kindhearted teenage girl who transforms into the powerful guardian of love and justice, Sailor Moon. Meeting allies along the way who share similar fates, Usagi and her team of planetary Sailor Guardians fight to protect the universe from forces of evil and total annihilation."
