The curious origin that led to the success of Sailor Moon
Sailor Moon cannot be understood without analyzing her origins a bit. Naoko Takeuchi He always dreamed of making a living drawing manga, his great passion along with astronomy. Although her parents forced her to go to university to study pharmacy, when she finished her degree, Naoko continued with her dream of being a cartoonist. He managed to get a couple of works published, which encouraged him to create a story whose main theme was the space and whose protagonists were women.
In August 1991, a first issue of ‘Call Me Sailor V’ Went on sale. In the manga, a cat was with Minako Aino, and told her that he had the power to transform her into a warrior called Sailor Venus. A single number was more than enough to get the attention of Toei Animation, the studio behind the series Dragon Ball Z.
Takeuchi accepted create a television series based on his character, but modified the bow to create a alternative history, introducing many more elements of popular culture. Thus, he entered fully into the super sentai genre, of Japanese origin, but that would begin to have international success at that time even with American productions such as power Rangers. In the spring of 1992, ‘Sailor Venus’ would become ‘Sailor Moon’, with an identical argument, but this time, accompanied by a group of teenage girls with unique powers, called the ‘Sailor Scouts’. Together, they fight to end the individuals who do evil. And sometimes, a very mysterious masked boy lends a hand. Both the manga and the anime They were a success, reaching the franchise to achieve World Fame. The franchise is currently somewhat more stagnant than in the past, but it does continue to generate a fairly stable cash flow thanks to the exploitation of its merchandise, as is the case with your huge collection of Funko Pop dolls.
