A thousand years ago, the Moon was home to a great civilization ruled by Queen Serenity. Everything was peaceful until the arrival of the evil Queen Beryl. To conquer the Moon, Queen Beryl unleashed the awesome power of the Negaforce. Although her world was destroyed, Queen Serenity's last hope was the Ginzuishou/Imperium Silver Crystal and the Crescent Moon Wand. Frozen in moonbeam crystals, the Queen, sent the princess (Princess Serenity) and the children of the Moon to the future...on Earth. Their memories lost to them all, the Queen's cat advisors, Luna and Artemis must find the Princess so she will at last be safe...

If you havenít heard of this series, leave my page quietly and no one will be hurt. The most famous Magical Girl, she pretty much defines the genre. Goofy-looking Villains Of The Day and cheesy dialogue are redeemed by babes in short skirts, action and comic relief. Donít watch this if you donít have a sense of humour. This is the original series which was adapted for North American TV (unfortunately). My advice is to avoid the dubs as much as possible. Besides the actual dubbing job, DIC managed to censor absolutely anything and everything even remotely suggestive or violent, and whereís the fun in that?

Available fansubbed or dubbed from DIC.
