  • I want to watch the episode

    What do I do?
  • This episode, A Moon Star Is Born, is an amazing start to a great series. In this episode we are introduced to Serena, a teenage girl who learns that she is Sailor Moon, defender of Earth from the Negaverse. She learns this from Luna, a talking cat.moreless

    This was an amazing episode and a great way to start off the series. It demonstrated great animation, especially when we see Serena transform into Sailor Moon for the first time and fight the Negaverse. Great animation is also shown when the Negaverse tries to take over Earth for the first time. We really do get to see how great this series will be and this episode shows how relatable the characters are! We also are introduced to the main characters such as Tuxedo Mask and Serena and Lune, the lovable cat who helps Serena realize she is really Sailor Moon!moreless
  • Serena Tsukino becomes Sailor Moon

    This is the first episode in one of the best anime series to ever hit television! Serena Tsukino is a crybaby, and sort of bratty, teenager. Her grades suck big time, and she has no boyfriend. On her way to school, she sees a bunch of boys picking on a black cat. Serena takes pitty on it, and saves it. And there's some weird moon shape on the cat's forehead!!! After she fails a big Algebra test, her friend Molly takes her shopping to cheer her up. They swing by Molly's mom's jewelry store, where everything is 99% off! I'd like to go shopping there! ;) After a bit, Serena decides to go home and face her mother. On her way home, she bumps into some hunky older student who calls her meatball head! XD When Serena arrives home, Mrs. Tsukino is outraged and locks Serena out of the house and refuses to let her back in until she studies at the library. So she does, and when she arrives home, Serena collapses on her bed. The weird cat from before sneaks into her window, and starts to talk to her! She tells Serena that she is actually Sailor Moon, and it's her destiny to protect the world. Back at the jewelry shop, Molly's mom is actually some crazy demon thing, and Serena, erm, Sailor Moon, has to go save Molly. Just as SM is about to be beaten, the devilishly handsome Tuxedo Mask comes to her rescue!!! Who is this strange man? Find out next time on Sailor Moon!moreless
