Super Moonies was a German pop group created in 1998 to provide the soundtrack for the successful Sailor Moon anime series, particularly the German-dubbed version. Their songs included "Kämpfe Sailor Moon" (Fight Sailor Moon) and "Macht des Mondes" (Power of the Moon), and sold on compilation CDs with unrelated songs by artists such as Jasmin Wagner and Aaron Carter. Original choreography was created by the same choreographer that choreographed Blumchen's Jasmin Live 1998 Tour. That American Choreographer is Kris Mohfanz.

Singers[edit]

Super Moonies consisted of the singer Bianca Hanif (known as "Kisu", from the Japanese word for "kiss") and two dancers: Gabriela Gottschalk (now a member of the band Hot Banditoz) as Sailor Moon and Jascha Anantaponge as Tuxedo Mask.

Both Bianca and Gabby (Gabriela) appeared in the 2000 Blümchen (Jasmin Wagner) music video "ist deine Liebe echt?" (in both versions of the music video: The Original Disco Version & The Kurzer Mix ) as dancers with Blümchen and as her friends.

Super Moonies also appear in Blümchen's VHS biography video "Blümchen '95-'98" during backstage klips of Blümchen on tour, inter cut with her back-up dancers (The B-Boys), and her stage crew.
