Sailor Moon receives the most ‘creative’ versions after #sailormoonredraw trended on Twitter

Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon is undoubtedly one of those Japanese anime series that has had an immense impact on pop culture. In fact, the 1992 franchise’s popularity has never faltered and it’s evident even in the younger generation, which patronizes its merch, ornaments, and cosplay costumes.

But Sailor Moon is more than just a story revolving around the lives of these “beautiful guardian warriors” who are destined to save the universe in sailor-style uniforms.

To celebrate this success while waiting for Sailor Moon Eternal, anime fans and illustrators alike are sharing their own interpretation of Sailor Moon in this online movement called #sailormoonredraw. The goal of the artists is to come up with their own versions based on this particular frame.
