The fact that probably most of us have grown up watching Sailor Moon among other animes and cartoons. The manga was adapted into an anime series and Toei Animation produced it. Sailor Moon broadcast in Japan back from 1992 to 1997. Right after, a live-action television adaptation, Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon aired from 2003 to 2004.
