4 Best Places to Watch Sailor Moon Online

No comments

Sailor Moon is definitely one of the most memorable shoujo anime from the 90s. Not only did this highly successful series start the whole magic girl genre craze, but it also introduced action to the shoujo genre. While the show was aimed towards young girls, the action made it a perfectly watchable show for all other kinds of audiences as well. Sailor Moon first started airing all the way back in 1992, and the hype for this anime series is still alive today with the release of the latest Sailor Moon Eternal movies in 2021. Are you someone who has still not jumped on the Sailor Moon bandwagon? Well, it’s never too late! In this article, I’ve mentioned all the best places where you can easily watch Sailor Moon. Be sure to read this entire article, as I’ll also be mentioning some places that let you buy the Blu-Ray disk sets of the series.

Sailor Moon Plot:

Before we talk more about all the places where you can watch Sailor Moon, let’s take a closer look at the amazing plot of the series.

Our protagonist in Sailor Moon is Usagi Tsukino, who is a very clumsy and absent-minded high school girl. This young girl one day meets a strange cat with a crescent moon on its head. The cat gives her a magical broach that lets her transform into Sailor Moon. These magical powers don’t come for free, though; Usagi is now tasked with protecting planet Earth from all kinds of monsters sent by the evil queen named Beryl.

Usagi must also find the other Sailor Guardians and the Silver Crystal in order to protect all the people she loves.

Where to Watch Sailor Moon Online

PLEASE NOTE: I will only be mentioning the best legal places to watch Sailor Moon, so you might have to pay for a better experience.

4. Netflix

While you can’t watch the original 90s anime on Netflix, the platform still lets you enjoy the entire remake (including the Eternal movies.) The anime is available in Japanese and English. However, its availability depends upon your region, so you might need a VPN in order to access the show.

How to Watch Sailor Moon on Netflix via VPN

This method works on both desktop PCs and mobile phones or tablets.

  1. Purchase (or start a free trial) of a VPN. I can confirm that NordVPN works for this purpose.
  2. In the settings, choose the USA as your location.
  3. Fire up the VPN and wait for it to do its magic
  4. Once you’re connected, navigate to Netflix (browser or app)
  5. Search “Sailor Moon” in the Netflix search bar and you should see Sailor Moon Crystral pop up.

Enjoy! Please note that if your Netflix library doesn’t update to reflect the country you selected in your VPN, you may have to clear the Netflix cache first and try again.

To to do this, go to settings -> apps -> Netflix -> clear cache. I’ve had no trouble using this method, and I still use NordVPN to watch anime from various Netflix country libraries daily.
