If you only read one manga in your life, make it this one. There's a reason Sailor Moon is legendary; it was, after all, responsible for the revitalization of the magical girl genre, and it could be argued that it's a big part of why the genre remains popular to this day. Amidst all the humor and school struggles, I think the Sailor Moon series has important ideas and lessons to offer readers about strength, love, determination, girlhood, and friendship. If that's not enough to get you interested, I'll leave this with the fact that the main character, Usagi, is one of the most relatable fictional characters I've ever come across. Most of the time, she just wants to snack and not do her homework, and thinks it would be easier if she were just a cat. I have to agree, Usagi. Recommended By Zoe S., Powells.com
