So this girl is arguably the progenitor of badass women in anime. Certainly, she is the first one I encountered in my life. She is the instantly recognizable heroine of anime-
Badass Women of Anime: Sailor Moon
I grew up with Sailor Moon. My older brother and I used to watch it all the time. Whenever we fought, we would watch Sailor Moon to calm ourselves down. Now that he doesn't live with us, whenever I miss him I just pull out my Sailor Moon DVDs and call my brother and we talk about it. Sailor Moon is a very important part of my life and I love it so much! Sailor Jupiter is my favorite though :3
I love sailor moon. I will always recommend it to people who are just getting into anime. it actually gave you a female to root for, because so much anime even now the main characters are guys. but I get where you're coming from. Not everyone likes the show, which is understandable it did have its good and bad moments.
