She is the One Named Sailor Moon!
"Sailor Moon" is a Japanese manga, or comic book series, that turned into a virtual cottage industry for its creator, Naoko Takeuchi. The manga premiered as a serial in Kodansha's monthly manga magazine Nakayoshi from the February 1992 issue to the March 1997 issue. It has 52 chapters, known as Acts, and ten separate side-stories.
"Sailor Moon" was so popular right from the start that Toei Animation produced an anime television series based upon it, also titled Sailor Moon. That series began airing in Japan on March 7, 1992, and ended on February 8, 1997. The series has 200 episodes and remains a children's classic.
