Ok I know not everyone is a fan of anime but I also don’t know of any girl who didn’t watch this show as of yet.

The plot is that; One day, Usagi Tsukino (Serena), clumsy 2nd-year middle school student (8th grader), stumbles upon a talking cat named Luna. Luna tells her that she is destined to be Sailor Moon, "champion of love and justice", and she must search for the fabled Moon Princess. Usagi (Serena) finds friends that turn out to be destined senshi (Soldiers or 'Scouts') as well, and together they fight to save the world from the certain doom brought upon by the Dark Kingdom (Queen Beryl, the generals, Metallia.. etc.).
Genres: action, comedy, magic, romance, science fiction, shoujo, slice of life...
Objectionable content: Mild (mild bad language and/or bloodless violence) So the intended audience for it is a pre-teen to teen one.

As of March 1, 2010, a new remastered Sailor Moon has returned to Italian television. Toei has also stated if it is popular in Italy, an international revival will begin.
However, it has yet to be announced if the English version will be re-licensed.

Recently, Toei is offering 200 refurbished episodes of Sailor Moon at MIPTV ( http://www.icv2.com/articles/news/17240.html ). The 200 episodes presumably include all the Sailor Moon TV anime series including the original series (46 episodes), Sailor Moon R (43 episodes), Sailor Moon S (38 episodes), Sailor Moon Super S (39 episodes), and Sailor Moon Stars (34 episodes, the only episodes that have never been available in the U.S.).
The anime is also scheduled to begin playing in Hong Kong once more in August 2010.
Sailor Moon has returned to Portuguese television in January 2011 and is going to make its way to Africa sometime in 2011.
It is March 2011 and the word/rumours on the interweb on why it is that there is still no mention of an English language release is $$$ ...
