The cover of the first volume of Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon as published by Kodansha on July 6, 1992 in Japan.

Sailor Moon is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Naoko Takeuchi. The series follows the adventures of Usagi Tsukino, a girl who transforms into the titular protagonist and goes on a journey to save the universe from being annihilated. Along the way, she encounters and defeats a diverse group of enemies. The series was published in individual chapters in the monthly manga anthology Nakayoshi,[1] Several adaptations based on Sailor Moon have been made including two anime series and three feature films produced by Toei Animation, as well as a musical series, a live-action television series produced by Toei Company, and a large number of video games.

These chapters were collected by Kodansha in a series of 18 tankōbon volumes; the first released on July 6, 1992,[2] while the last one was released on April 4, 1997.[3] It was later rereleased in 12 shinsōban to coincide with the run of the live-action series Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, with some corrections and updates to the dialogue and artwork. Volume 1 was released on September 22, 2003[4] and volume 12 released on July 23, 2004.[5]

The North America distributing company Tokyopop initially released 18 volumes from the Japanese first edition, split into three series, Sailor Moon with 11 volumes, Sailor Moon SuperS with four volumes, and Sailor Moon StarS with three volumes. Volume 1 was released on December 1, 1998,[6] and volume 18 was released on September 18, 2001.[7] The first 7 chapters were also published in the American magazine, MixxZine then chapters 34 through 52 were published in Smile. The series was also published in thirty-five issues in traditional American comic book format. This publication was not complete, only containing chapters 8[8] through 33[9] and the extra "Lover of Princess Kaguya".[10] These were released starting in August 1998 at the San Diego ComicCon[11] through mid-2001.[10] The Mixx and Tokyopop editions of the manga went out of print in 2005.[citation needed] In 2011, Kodansha Comics USA began re-printing the 14 volume restored Sailor Moon manga edition (including the two short story compilations) under the title Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, as well the two volume restored Codename: Sailor V manga editions in English beginning with Volume 1 of both titles on September 13, 2011, featuring an all new translation. Subsequent volumes were published bimonthly.[12]

When the Sailor Guardians return, Kunzite lures them into battle, but is defeated when they combine powers against him. Beryl uses Metaria's power to raise up a brainwashed Endymion as her new servant, whereupon he infiltrates the Sailor Guardians' control room and steals Usagi's part of the Silver Crystal. Beryl then attacks the Guardians herself, but is killed by Sailor Venus using a stone sword she obtained in the Moon. Grabbing it, the possessed Endymion escapes to the North Pole, pursued by the other Sailor Guardians. Unable to heal Endymion, Sailor Moon realizes that the only way to defeat Metaria is to free the crystal fragment from his body. Weeping, she slashes his chest with the sword, and then runs it through herself as well. The fully realized crystal then forms in the air, growing until it covers up their bodies and is swallowed whole by Metaria. The Sailor Guardians hurl all their power at her, but are struck down. Within the crystal, Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask are revealed to have survived the strike of the sword and reawaken. Sailor Moon prepares to seal Metaria away.

Usagi meets Kakyuu, who explains that Galaxia has been destroying planets and stealing Sailor Crystals before reaching Earth and the Silver Crystal. Tin Nyanko appears before Galaxia and asks for forgiveness, but Galaxia kills her. Usagi, ChibiChibi, Kakyuu, and the Starlights travel to the Galaxy Cauldron, the birthplace of all life and stars in the Milky Way, located at the center of the galaxy, to get Mamoru and the Guardians' Sailor Crystals and revive them. Upon arriving, they meet Sailor Lethe, who brings Luna, Artemis, and Diana to kill them and take their starseeds, which are as powerful as Sailor Crystals. Lethe attacks Usagi and the others but is stopped by her twin sister, Sailor Mnemosyne. Usagi realizes her Crystal is the source of all wars and asks Lethe and Mnemosyne to kill her, but the twins are moved by Usagi's sacrifice and let her go to Galaxia. However, Sailor Chi and Sailor Phi, Galaxia's closest servants and leaders of the Animamates, appear and kill Lethe and Mnemosyne with their powers, and take their Sailor Crystals. ChibiChibi shields herself, as well as Usagi and Kakyuu, but cannot protect the Starlights, who are still unconscious in the ground from Lethe's previous attack.

The Starlights die as a result of Sailor Phi and Sailor Chi's attack, and their Sailor Crystals are taken too. Chibiusa and the Sailor Quartet arrive from the future to help. As they make their way to Galactica Palace, Usagi and the others destroy one last Animamate, as well as Phi, Chi, and the eight Solar System Guardians, who are under Galaxia's control; however, Kakyuu is killed in action. Once inside the Palace, the battle between Usagi and Galaxia takes place. Usagi finally meets Chaos, the being who failed to become a star and who has sent incarnations in the forms of Metaria, Wiseman, Pharaoh 90 and Nehelenia to reach Usagi and her Silver Crystal. Galaxia intends Usagi and Chaos to destroy each other so that she alone remains as the most powerful being in the Milky Way, but she is killed by Chaos. ChibiChibi states that the only way to defeat Chaos is to destroy the Cauldron, but Usagi tells her that she will not end the cycle of life of the galaxy and encourages ChibiChibi to never give up. ChibiChibi reveals her true self: Sailor Cosmos, Sailor Moon's ultimate form from a distant future. Usagi uses all her power and throws herself into the Cauldron to seal Chaos. Usagi's courage reminds Cosmos of the strength she needs to keep fighting and returns to her own timeline. Within the Cauldron, Usagi meets Mamoru and her friends, and asks Guardian Cosmos, the guardian of the Cauldron, to send them all back to Earth and their normal lives. The series concludes with Usagi and Mamoru's wedding, while the construction of Crystal Tokyo is taking place; Usagi is seen pregnant with Chibiusa.
