Did you know that Sailor Moon was based on the true story of Naoko Takeuchi herself? Indeed, more often than not, art does imitate life. Takeuchi has always been open with the fact that her loved ones inspired her to write the manga series. Moreover, Takeuchi has always seen a great deal of herself in Usagi Tsukino, or also known as Sailor Moon. That fact leads every Sailor Moon fan to ask themselves if Takeuchi also loves hamburgers and milkshakes as much as Usagi Tsukino. If you still can't relate, you might want to watch Sailor Moon online on some of the best anime websites out there.
Anyway, if you can't still get over the fact that Usagi Tsukino is Naoko Takeuchi herself, here are some more weird secrets about Sailor Moon. Did you know that Takeuchi gave Usagi a younger brother with the same name as her real-life brother, Shingo? Perhaps, the reason why this shojo manga was greatly welcomed in Japan and even in the United States is because of its message's authenticity. Although when its Americanized version was aired in the US, some of its themes were altered. For instance, the American TV censors did not approve of the forbidden love between Sailor Venus and Sailor Uranus. Yes, you read that right, the original Japanese material depicted these two as lovers, not cousins really. Despite the alterations, Sailor Moon still remains to be one of the most popular anime franchise and one of the must-read manga series of all time.
