Sailormoon Manga vs Sailormoon Anime

The drawing style in the manga is more detailed but whispier than that of the anime, and the characters are much prettier, especially in SailorStars where Takeuchi's beautiful style is clearly at its peak. The manga tankubon and the art books are really worth getting if for the artwork alone. The characters and the plotline in the manga are much more mature and deeper than those of the anime especially in SuperS. The anime and manga can stand by themselves, but the manga has more of the dramatics and less of the generally pleasant aura that's in the anime. There is suicide, plenty of violence, disgusting looking monsters/youmas/daimons/etc, sex implied, and more of the like. However, nothing in the manga would scare anyone over the age of 10. On the other hand, the majority of the enemies in the anime are much more developed than in the manga; in the manga, the villains tend to be pure evil and only get one or two acts before being destroyed.

The following are links to more specific differences between the anime and the manga. They are not *all* the differences, of course, since that would take too long. All the manga covers have been scanned courtesy of Tsukino Usagi-chan at Please do not use them without her permission.
