Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon (commonly known as PGSM) is a live-action reinterpretation of Sailor Moon. It follows the Dark Kingdom arc of the franchise, with the awakening of the four Inner Sailor Senshi. The show ran from 2003 to 2004, consisting of 49 episodes, a sequel (that takes place four years later), a prequel (detailing the origins of Sailor V and Tuxedo Mask), and a "making of" special.

Changes Made in Canon

Some differences between Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon and the other incarnations of the metaseries include:

  • Sailor Moon, Sailor Mercury, and Sailor Venus don't have their colored hair until they transform.
  • Minako Aino is a pop idol, rather than being a normal schoolgirl like the other Sailor Senshi (who dreams of becoming an idol in the manga and anime). She is also more serious and strict than in the other incarnations where she is cheerful and funny.
  • The Game Center Crown has become a karaoke parlor.
  • Motoki changes from an attractive, suave, character to a socially awkward but loveable turtle fan.
  • Luna and Artemis are plush toys rather than real cats.
  • Luna also becomes a Sailor Senshi, known as Sailor Luna, more or less taking the place of Sailor Chibi Moon (Artemis never takes human form).
  • Mio Kuroki is a younger, shadow version of Queen Beryl that only appeared in the live-action version, whereas she never appeared in the metaseries. She was the only one who Minako mistrusted because of her intent to cause pain to Usagi and later Rei saw her for who she was.
  • Sailor Mercury turns evil and becomes Dark Mercury which never occurs in the anime or manga. However, Tuxedo Mask also becomes evil in the ending acts of the Live-Action.
  • Sailor Moon has an upgraded form, known as Princess Sailor Moon. However, Princess Serenity had full control of it, causing an internal conflict between her and Usagi for the rest of the series.
  • When Luna becomes a human, it shows that she is a child instead of an adult.
  • Only two people die in Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon: Tuxedo Mask (when being killed by Kunzite in act 25) and Minako Aino ( when she died in a surgery in act 47)
