The anime "Sailor Moon" is called a "shoujo" anime which means it was designed specifically for the assumed taste of young girls. The show, reaching 200 episodes, began airing in the 1990's right in the middle of the "Girl Power" movement that encompassed that decade.

Although not without its criticisms, the anime has been dubbed feminist and progressive in its approach to gender at the time. The show remains a classic and staple to young girls as they follow teenager Sailor Moon or Usagi Tsukino on her journey to defeat dark forces from the Dark Kingdom through the power of justice and love.

This all begins when she comes across a talking cat, Luna, who is looking for her to help fight this evil. She does not do it alone, joined by her friends and fellow Sailor Soldiers, Sailor Mercury, Sailor Mars, Sailor Jupiter, and Sailor Venus.
