Review This is too well known for me to review it as a series, anyway if you followed this link here you probably know more about the series than I do. If the past year is anything to go by, if you are patient you will see repeats of the whole of Sailor Moon TV, either in German, or in Japanese/Polish, or both . The German opening song is NOT an improvement, but if you haven't seen it before, you'll find that walking over to your ASTRA receiver and punching a few buttons is far less hassle than ordering fan tapes! It's easy to follow, and from what I hear, each episode of the first series has the same plot anyway.
If you are still wondering why this shoujo series is so popular, I'd say it's because Usagi (Bunny) is such an ordinary girl, but still gets to be a super-heroine (but a somewhat clueless one) and there are lots of references to ordinary life. The character designs are very pretty, and the Sailors are rather cute.
