The mid-1990s cult anime series “Sailor Moon” that features “a cast of magic-wielding girls” began airing in the U.S. this week on Internet television Hulu.
Hulu will be showing remastered versions of the Japanese series for four Mondays ahead of the release of Blu-ray and DVD editions this fall, according to AFP Relaxnews
VIZ Media, a distribution company that holds the rights to stream the series, will also introduce a brand new series "Sailor Moon Crystal." That series will have a slightly different schedule since its 26-episodes won’t kickoff their biweekly release until July 5 in Japan, according to Comics Alliance

The original series was first broadcast with 46 episodes airing in 1992 and 1993 and has since been subject to be altered to be more culturally sensitive. However, the Hulu version is uncut and has been digitally remastered with a Japanese voice cast supplemented by English subtitles and a voice dub expected in the coming months.
According to Viz Media
, the series’ main character is Usagi Tsukino, a “clumsy but kindhearted teenager girl who transforms into the powerful guardian of love and justice, Sailor Moon.” The story lines involve other girls who share similar fates and along with Usagi, “fight to protect the universe from forces of evil and total annihilation.”
