Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon refers to the original incarnation of Sailor Moon, which was written and illustrated by Naoko Takeuchi and published in Kodansha's Nakayoshi magazine between 1992 and 1997. This first edition consisted of 18 volumes covering 52 acts, with volume 11 containing short stories that did not follow the main storyline. Starting from 2003, the series was re-released in Japan in a new format known as the "Renewal Edition" or "Shinzōban" (新装版; lit. "newly bound edition"); in this new edition, slight corrections were made to dialog and art. The new edition consisted of 12 volumes (each with new cover art) covering 60 acts, as well as two additional volumes separating the short stories from the main storyline.

An English translated version was produced by TokyoPop soon after the first Japanese edition. Additionally, the new re-release of English translated version has been published by Kodasha Comics USA in 14 Volumes, starting September 13, 2011, under the new title, "Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon".

Naoko Takeuchi also released seven artbooks containing art from the manga series, including the cover illustrations, pictures from the chapter heading pages, and other images of the characters.

As it was revealed in 2012, and confirmed on August 4, 2013 at the second 20th Anniversary, there will be information in the upcoming October 2013 Nakayoshi magazine about the brand new "Kanzanban" or complete edition of the Sailor Moon manga. The first two volumes will be released simultaneously on November 26, 2013. They will published twice a month and are scheduled to finish in April 2014.

It has also been announced that two artbooks will be released sometime in late 2014, and that the artbooks will contain an original bonus item for each country's version.
