Japanese Name: Tsukino Usagi
Created by Naoko Takeuchi, the Japanese manga and anime franchise Sailor Moon was an international hit during its initial run (1992-97). Sailor Moon is the alter ego of klutzy teen Serena (her name in the North American version). Serena is a cowardly "Meatball Head" (a nickname based on her hairstyle), insecure about boys and perpetually late for school. But Sailor Moon is a beautiful, graceful and romantic princess, and the leader of the all-girl Sailor Scouts. Serena/Sailor Moon battles magical, extra-dimensional evil ones from the Negaverse, while living an ordinary teen life on Earth.
