There is something happening every day of the year. Some days even have multiple happenings. Today the 6 August celebrates the incredibly popular manga and the anime series, Sailor Moon!
What is Sailor Moon All About
It all started with a small black cat with a lot to say, and a young girl named Usagi Tsukino who received a brooch that transforms her into the titular Sailor Moon. From that point forward a team of Sailor Guardians becomes assembled, and they’re out to save the world from all the enemies that come their way.
History of the day
Rather than the obvious choice of Sailor Moon’s birthday or the day the manga was first created, it’s set on Mamoru’s birthday. Which kinda (but not really) makes perfect sense considering that he’s the Prince of Earth and represents us all.
Sailor Moon is so popular that it has garnered an international following, originally being published in Japan in 1991 it had over one million copies sold by 1995, and the number just kept growing over the next couple decades. Now it’s loved the world over, both in its manga and its anime format, and it has sold over 35 million copies in fifty countries, that’s some serious Sailor love right there!
