My first anime was Sailor Moon.
Sailor Moon is definitely an anime I would recommend for those looking for a light yet interesting story.
Serena (Usaki) turns out to be a magical girl basically and must team up with the infamous Sailor V along with 4 other school girls.
The newer version is more graphic and adult.
The english US version is child-like and fun, it also takes out the most adorable female coupling ever due to past homophobic-ness.
The old Japanese version was child-like and fun, but was more of a medium between the newer and US version. it also contains an adorable couple that I can't name or I will spoil.
Anyways you guys should watch it because it is adorable and I like it.
Have fun anime buds <3
