List of Sailor Moon episodes

Sailor Moon, known in Japan as Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon[1][2] (Japanese: 美少女戦士セーラームーン, Hepburn: Bishōjo Senshi Sērā Mūn), is the first season of a 1992 anime television series produced by Toei Animation and directed by Junichi Sato based on the manga of the same title by Naoko Takeuchi. It was broadcast from March 7, 1992 to February 27, 1993 on TV Asahi. This season adapts the first arc of the series, the "Dark Kingdom" arc.[3] A second season, Sailor Moon R, began airing on March 6, 1993.

It follows the adventures of Usagi Tsukino and her friends. After discovering her true identity as the titular character from the magical cat Luna, Usagi fights to protect the Earth from the Dark Kingdom, who previously destroyed the ancient Moon Kingdom.

In the 1993 favorite episode listings for Animage, "Loved and Chased! Luna's Worst Day Ever" came in first place, with "Naru's Cry! Nephrite Dies for Love" coming in third place, "The Sparkling Silver Crystal! The Moon Princess Appears" coming in sixth place, "Memories Return! Usagi and Mamoru's Past" coming in ninth place and "Love for Ami?! A Boy Who Can Predict the Future" coming in eleventh place.[4] The following year, the two-part series finale "The Sailor Warriors Die! The Tragic Final Battle" and "Usagi's Everlasting Wish! A New Reincarnation" took first and second place respectively.[5] Eight DVD compilations were released in Japan between May 21 and July 21, 2002,[6][7] and the series was later released in a remastered edition in two box-sets from December 11, 2009 to January 21, 2010.[8][9]

In the English language adaptation of the series by former licensee DIC Entertainment, the season was cut down to 40 episodes and also adding an ending segment, "Sailor Says," to teach a moral based on the story that had just been shown.[10][11][12] The episodes were first broadcast on YTV in Canada from August 28 to October 24, 1995, and later had its first-run syndication in the United States from September 11 to November 3, 1995. The first season was later released by ADV Films in a subtitle-only DVD box set in 2003. Eventually, on May 16, 2014, the season was re-licensed for an updated English-language release by Viz Media and they released the season in two uncut DVD and Blu-ray compilations on November 11, 2014 and February 10, 2015 for parts one and two respectively. Hulu began streaming the series in the United States on May 19, 2014, with Tubi TV following suit in Canada on July 15, 2016.

The score was composed by Takanori Arisawa. Three pieces of theme music are used for the episodes; one opening theme and two closing themes. The opening theme for the whole season is "Moonlight Densetsu" (ムーンライト伝説, Mūnraito Densetsu, lit. "Moonlight Legend") performed by the idol group DALI.[13] "Heart Moving", performed by Misae Takamatsu of Sakura Sakura, is used as the ending theme for the first 26 episodes,[13] and "Princess Moon", performed by Ushio Hashimoto, is used for the remainder of the season.[14] DIC Entertainment made an English-language version of the Japanese opening theme for its adaptation.[15]
