My opinion: To be truthful, I didn't like Serena much in the beginning of the series. All she seemed like was a crybaby, always sucking up to get what she wanted, a total ditz. As the series progressed though, I started to respect her more. Like before the other scouts came, she had to defeat the villain by herself, with only her Crescent Moon Wand, Luna's advice, and her courage. In her first battle with the monster at Molly's mom's jewelry store, she freaked out, but Luna told her to use her tiara and she did, thus destroying the villain. As I continued to watch the show, it showed that Serena was a normal girl, like any of us. She loved to eat junk food, sleep a lot, hang out with her friends, go shopping, and chase boys with her friends. Nothing out of the ordinary, right? What really made me respect her though was that no matter what happened, she was a loyal friend, always putting her life on the line to save her friends. She never gave up, and even though she occasionally freaked out, she always managed to pull through. When I started to read the manga, it showed Serena in a different light. She seemed more mature, more independent I guess the word could be. Considering it was Naoko's work though, that could be why, yes? In the anime, a lot of things were switched around and changed, which would mean I interpreted Serena's actions wrong, and just went by what the show was like, instead of looking at it from both points of view. So now, Iíve seen Serena from the anime and the manga point of view, and I respect her a lot more.
