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.

Plot

Sailor Moon is a manga series that ran alongside an anime adaptation of it for over 5 seasons. Later, the live-action TV series "Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon" aired. There has also been several movies; one for Season 2, one for Season 3, and one for Season 4. Starting in 2014, a second animated TV series titled Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal aired, intending to be a "reboot" and be based much more closely on the manga than the 90's anime.

The Dark Kingdom Arc (Season 1) follows Usagi Tsukino who is awakened as a guardian of justice, Sailor Moon by a talking cat, Luna. It is her mission to recruit fellow allies, find the moon princess and stop the Dark Kingdom from taking control of the Earth.

In Black Moon Arc (Season 2), a mysterious child, Chibiusa Tsukino falls from the sky, asking for help. It is up to Sailor Moon and her allies to defeat the Black Moon Clan and save 30th-Century Tokyo.

The Infinity Arc (Season 3) introduces new Sailor Soldiers, who may be allies, or may be foes.

In the Dream Arc (Season 4), a pegasus comes calling to Chibiusa for her help. The Land of Elysion is in danger and Sailor Moon must banish away the evil nightmares coming from the suspicious circus that recently came into town.

In the Stars Arc (Season 5), a new foe appears, Sailor Galaxia, who wants to be most powerful in the universe. Sailor Moon must find a way to stop her from doing so and figure out the story behind the three new students, the Three Lights.

Fanon

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.
