The series, which bids ado in Japan in Spring after five years, returns to select syndicated stations in June. During this time, there will be negotiations made to get Sailor Moon onto a network for new episodes. I've only been able to see 65 episodes produced by DIC which are edited dubs of the first 72 episodes of Sailor Moon and Sailor Moon R. Sailor Moon dealing with whining, always-late, boy-crazy, irresponsible, underacheiving teenager Serena gaining magic powers from her talking cat Luna to fight the Negaverse, headed by Queen Beryl. She's joined by four more responsible girls who have generally the same powers and same short-skirted, Sailor-suit super costumes as she does.
Sailor Moon R, after Queen Beryl is destroyed, first deals with two aliens who steal energy from Earth to preserve the Doom Tree which supplies them with enough energy to survive. Once that story is done, Sailor Moon R becomes extremely complicated once a girl named Reeny falls out the sky looking for a crystal belonging to Sailor Moon to save her parents in the future. This is where the story stopped when Sailor Moon was cancelled. The show is very detailed, like most animes, and has emotional content, humor and other elements that give it more of a special feel that goes beyond a neverending struggle for domination of Earth.
