Sailor Moon started as a one-shot manga series in Japan called Codename: Sailor V, which became the more well-known manga Sailor Moon that would span five arcs.
An animated TV series following shortly after the one-shot ran alongside the manga that spanned five seasons. Later, the live-action TV series "Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon" aired. There has also been several movies. More recently, a second animated TV series "Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal" aired based off the first two arcs of the manga.
Sailor Moon follows Usagi Tsukino who finds out that she is a superhero and princess of the moon, and she fights some evil people. Besides this, there's her daughter from the future with an Electra complex, who later falls in love with a magical peasgus.

As one of the first Western-licensed anime franchises and with Cardcaptor Sakura, the first with a canonical LGBTQ ship, [[HaruMichi]], Sailor Moon is one of the most popular anime franchises in Japan and around the world. Not least, this was achieved thanks to a healthy feminist message and the revolutionary combination of shoujo with the male-focused Super Sentai genre.
Since Haruka and Michiru were not just a canonical lesbian couple, but actually the first canonical lesbian couple in the mainstream children's series, they quickly became an iconic ship and one of the first models for the young yuri industry. It was so influential that during the first broadcast of the show in the West, the USA and many other countries were forced to censor their image.
Although technically Sailor Moon doesn't belong to the yuri genre, the extraordinary popularity of the already mentioned iconic lesbian ship and the good number of positive queer representations have made this series a cult in the lesbian community and one of the most famous examples of yuri shipping. The strong focus of work on strong and emotional friendship between female characters, especially in the manga, has also helped such a reputation.
