“Sailor Moon,” a blond ponytailed teenager, and her girlfriends are on the way to combat evil and sexism — and sell as many dolls, trinkets and toys as possible. The Japanese creators of the Sailor Moon cartoon attribute its immense popularity in Japan to the casting of strong females as central characters.
These warriors against sexism wear miniskirts and draw power from makeup — and sometimes get help from Sailor Moon’s love interest, a masked man named Tuxedo, who appears when the girls are in trouble.
Known in Japan as “Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon,” the title character in everyday life is a brash and dishevelled 14-year-old named Usagi, who like most Japanese high school girls wear sailor uniforms.
Using magical brooches, sceptres and, Usagi and her girl companions transform into fast-thinking, stylish superheroines who use power rays to fight otherworldly demons.

Sailor Moon also celebrates her 25th birthday.
