Extra Information
Anyone who watches Sailor Moon knows Naoko Takeuchi plays a big part. Without her we wouldn't have the characters and story we love. She's the creator of Sailor Moon! Sailor Moon wasn't always an anime cartoon. It first started out as a Japanese girls' comic (or shojo manga) drawn by Naoko.
Her Sailor Moon story can be found in a total of 18 volumes, and 54 acts (sort of like episodes in the manga).

The Sailor Moon Manga started in the February, 1992 issue of Nakayoshi and the Anime was started on March 7, 1992.
