time was often cut short, and their exploits often forgotten, but these are
the most minor of characters, who still left enough impact to shape the world
Usagi knew, and the life her daughters would grow accustomed to.
Motoki Furuhata (Andrew
Foreman) ~ The blond haired, green eyed arcade man. Motoki was one of Usagi's
first crushes and quickly befriended 30th century Chibiusa, shortly after her
arrival, and in one issue gave both Chibiusa and her mother Sailor V dolls.
Somewhat of a flirt, he enjoys the girls' company, and even knows the
identity of the Inners in the manga. In the manga, he had a best friend,
Endo, but sadly, Endo was "evaporated" by Endymion, then posing as
Motoki's new best friend. To date, Andrew's best friends now are Usagi,
Mamoru and Makoto. In the anime, he is seen for a handful of episodes, before
bowing out during the beginning of SuperS. His anime counterpart never knew
the identity of the Senshi.
Unazuki Furuhata (Elizabeth,
Liz, Una) ~ Motoki's younger sister. She works as a waitress in "Crown
Parlor" as their family owns several different facilities in the area.
She is about 16 when the Inners meet her, and she goes to the same private
school as Rei. Though she usually gives off powerful advice, she is still
emotionally awkward, and does occasionally turn to Chibiusa and her mother's
court for help.
Blake) ~ The much disliked girlfriend of Motoki. In the anime she is
incredibly dense and at least a few years older than Motoki, and spends most
of the series in Africa. She laments in two of the three episodes she appears in over
whether or not a long distance relationship is possible between herself and a
man who's devoted to her. (Dumbass.) In the manga, she stays put in Tokyo, and is rather prissy.
Her favorite clothes are Versace, and she is constantly on Motoki's case
a. Not getting a
good enough education
b. Flirting with
the underage Senshi and
c. Just plain not
being under her constant thumb.
She's very high
maintenance, and sometimes is seen as a much thinner-headed blond. Only
Sailor Jupiter tolerates her, and even then in small doses.
Kotono (Kate) ~ A
manga only student at the school Rei goes to. (The dishwater blond in the
school uniform above.) Perky and energetic, her hobbies deal with the
supernatural, and she is Rei's friend through SuperS. Most assume that since
she is the right age, description and shares a last name with Kyusuke that
they are indeed brother and sister, but Naoko has yet to follow up with any
further notes on this subject.
Asanuma~ A mostly
manga only character who admires Mamoru. A very sweet boy, he credits Mamoru
with helping him get into the school they're in when Mamoru lent him some of
his power. He debuted in SailormoonR, and along the way, he befriended the
Inner Senshi, and Mamoru even trusted him to look after Chibiusa and her
friends in one issue. He appeared in only one episode of Sailormoon, during
the StarS series. He was seen briefly, knocking on Mamoru's door, but was not
even mentioned again anywhere else during the anime. Rarely seen, he has an
impressive fan base.
Umino (Melvin) ~
Everyone's least favorite geek. Umino is seen prevalently in the first two
seasons of the anime, but is rarely seen in the manga. He secretly crushes on
Usagi at first, but later turns his attentions to Naru, though no such
crushes exist in the manga version. His most helpful accomplishment is in the
SuperS battle exam chapter "Ami's First Love" when he introduces
the real Mercurious to the Inners. He is eager to do anything to please Usagi
and Naru, even dressing in drag in one episode, in an effort to help Naru win
a talent contest. Prone to wild freak fits, yet academically bright, his last
appearance is during SuperS.
Melvin) ~A manga only classmate of Chibiusa's. Sorano's existence proves that
there's a "Melvin" for every workplace or school. He's seen only
briefly and is less brave than his older counterpart Umino. The two don't
appear to be related, though they could pass as twins. He is seen in some of
the "Rini's Picture Diary" comics, and briefly in SailormoonS.
Umino is actually his last name, as his first is Gurio, but his friends call
him by his last name only. He bows out during Sailormoon SuperS.
Ms. Haruna Sakurada
(Ms. Patricia Haruna, Ms. H) ~ Usagi's bitchy 8th grade teacher. Though seen
as blond or strawberry blond in the manga, she is depicted as a fiery red
head in the anime. She plays an all too easy target in the 1st season of the
anime, but is thankfully omitted from all storyline by SailormoonS. Her main
concern was never the students as much as her social life, and she despised
Usagi with a passion for how the future queen carried her study habits. She
constantly screams at Usagi, and makes her days in 8th grade a living
nightmare. She was rarely seen in the manga and her whereabouts post
SailormoonS are unknown.
She has a mother, father, younger sibling and dates quite frequently. No
images or names appear for her family.
~The long haired schoolgirl with blue eyes. Yumiko is a minor character seen
in the beginning of the series. Yumiko is your average schoolgirl and is a
decent friend of Naru and Usagi's. She is usually seen daydreaming about the
latest celebrity or trend, and was one of several victims of Jadeite in
numerous episodes. She is seen up until SailormoonR. Like many a schoolgirl,
she dreams of becoming a star, and of her future boyfriend ... whomever that
Kuriko (Kari, Kuri)
~Short haired school girl above. Kuriko has at least two different versions
of herself in the anime, one with blue hair, and once again with her normal
coloring. Though usually a quiet girl, she tends to be more aggressive than
Yumiko, in some cases even being slightly more violent. She goes to school
with Usagi and aside from the usual "victim of possession"
episodes, is a pretty average girl. One of several background extras for the
series, she is not usually seen without Yumiko. Originally, she had hair
shorter than Haruka, but it was later lengthened out to just above her
Kyusuke (Kelly, Kyuuske)
~ Chibiusa's loudmouth classmate. He secretly admires Chibiusa's bravery and
skill, but has the most fun when he's pushing other people's buttons. In the
manga, his idol is his older sister, who makes Sailor Moon and Sailor V
buttons for him, but in the anime he makes no reference to his family. His
family owns their own business and a Soba restaurant, but aren't considered
incredibly well off just yet. Though he brags about being tough, it is often
Chibiusa who comes to his rescue more than he'd like to admit. (That's all
the time, for those doing the math.) Stubborn and selfish, he is seen with
many colors of brown hair in the anime, but has green hair and eyes in the
Momoko, Mamo, Melissa, Melanie, Mary, Melody, Natalie, Quaneesha-Broomqueesha-Taleesha-Brunalla
the 3rd.)~ The child with the ever changing appearance, she has appeared in
both the anime and manga with hair colors in brown, red, magenta, pink and
purple, and eyes in green, purple, pink, magenta, red, brown and black. She
debuts in SailormoonR as Chibiusa's first "regular" friend, and is
seen until StarS. Momo is a very sweet girl, but does once and a while fall
victim to a short temper, usually activated by Kyusuke. She is also the
fastest developed, and already has a curvy "brick house" body, and
a size C cup breast by the time we meet her...in KINDERGARTEN. (What the fuck
is that about?!) Her family runs an old Chinese restaurant, and are pretty
Hanmatsuura~ The kindly yet strange otaku who runs the Hammer Price pawn
shop. He is seen only in one issue of the manga. He automatically knows about
Diana, Luna and Artemis, and can be considered somewhat of a weirdo. (A
stalker perhaps?) His dream is to always have the best items in his store to
attract young girls to his place of business >.< In the issue he
appears in, he is attacked by evil contractors, trying to take away the shop,
and is also attacked by Otakura. But when his new friends are about to be
pulverized by Otakura's evil, he changes into Fatty Mask (or Tubby Mask) and
saves Naruru and Ruruna. He later rebuilds the shop, and is quite successful.
He loves Ruruna and Naruru best, having made special costumes, only for them.
Mr. Kaidou (Kaido, Kaidou-sama) ~ The number one aide of Rei's father, he
often picked out presents and cared for Rei in her father's stead. Though she
hated her father, and was let down by his lack of compassion, she did not
discredit Mr. Kaidou's attempts. On occasion, he would walk with her, look
after her, and he always told her how good she'd look in white. He sent her
fine white dresses and a bouquet of Casablanca each year for her birthday.
He told her much of how he felt connected to her, said that he understood her
loneliness, and told her of how he would never marry or have children, and
how he couldn't get into politics and couldn't be like her father. He called
her his kindred spirit. Such pretty words ... such pretty lies.
On one day, after many
of Mr. Kaidou's words and gifts, a 13 year old Rei caught a glimpse of him
... chatting up his fiancée. After playing witness to the truth, Rei made a
rare phone call to her father. Her father then told her of how Mr. Kaidou was
set to be his successor, and that the fiancée was the daughter of the head of
the Independence party.
(Mr. Hino so you know
is a Diet member of the Democratic Independence party.)
In a heart wrenching
scene, Rei let Mr. Kaidou know that she knew all about his lies and the
truth. And as he tried again to spin-doctor the story around, she said
"Liar... If you
were going to be a politician ... if you were going to be Papa's successor
... you could have married me."
Mr. Kaidou shared with
Rei her first kiss, before bowing out of the series. The marriage by the way
was a suggestion made to Mr. Kaidou by Rei's own father. Hmm...
Himeko Nayotake~ The often uptight woman belonging to Kakeru. Himeko is seen
in the SailormoonS movie, and in the corresponding manga story, Kaguya's
Lover. Himeko's life mission was to be an astronaut. She is able to achieve
that goal, but along the way faces many hardships. One of them, being her
strained relationship with Kakeru. His sudden mood swings often made her spin
out in turmoil, and the two fought a plenty during their brief stay in the
series. But it was their deep love for each other and the memories that they
share from childhood that kept them together. Their relationship is much more
serious in the manga, and their story ends with them embracing their love for
each other, and awaiting the day that their unborn child may join them. Her
Materials Collection age is 22.
Oozora~ The sickly costar of the SailormoonS movie. He debuts in both the
anime and in the manga, saving Luna from being hit by a car. He nurses her
back to health, and gives her a yellow ribbon as a gift. Luna begins to fall
in love with him, and spends several days away from the Senshi and Artemis
with him. In the manga, she even follows him on a plane to America! But meanwhile, his body
and his home were secretly being used by the Snow Princess Kaguya as a
temporary base, while her Snow Dancer minions ravaged Tokyo. She even fed upon his
already zapped strength, draining his life-force. His mind warped, he began
to question everything he ever really knew. His body began to give out on
him, but just as things seemed as bleak as it could get, The Snow Princess
Kaguya was defeated, he was freed from her grip, and then Super Sailor Moon
released enough power to turn Luna human for one night, allowing the weakened
Kakeru to spend one short night with his "Kaguya". He shares a sweet
kiss and a sunrise with Luna, before being returned to Earth at full
strength. He then exits the series with Himeko in tow, having been reminded
by Luna that "his Kaguya" waits for him on Earth. (Yes, Himeko.)
Age is listed as 29 in the Materials Collection, but appears as a child with
Himeko in the manga, presumably the same age as her, even though the artbook
lists her as 22~ a full 7 years different.
Yuuchirou Kumada (Chad) ~ An anime only
character, Yuuchirou is first seen lying on the stoop to the Hikawa Shrine.
Wanting to be closer to Rei, he manages to secure a position with Rei's
grandfather as hired help for the shrine. He portrays himself as a homeless
bum, but in reality, he comes from a very wealthy family. He chooses the life
he leads, because he wants to be an honest man, and earn his keep, rather
than to sponge off of his family or to lead the average "rich
person's" life. As sweet as he can be, he is also very dense, and has a
tendency to judge people by their looks rather than their character. He is
also the constant victim in many of the early "Mars heavy"
episodes, and has almost been killed on several occasions. While still floundering
between the "pseudo big brother" and the potential boyfriend roles,
he bows out by Sailormoon SuperS.
Schoolgirl~ ACK ACK ACK! HOW MANY FRIKIN' NAMELESS CHARACTERS ARE IN
SAILORMOON??? Fer cryin' out loud, somebody PLEASE read a baby name book!!
Whew, anyway ... throughout the series there are many schoolgirl characters
featured as some of Usagi's peers, but very few make it from one episode to
the next. The slightly pudgy girl above is seen in episodes 4 and 8 in the
first season, and is somewhat snobby. Her main concern seems to be about her
appearance, as she fears her boyfriend dumped her due to her size. She is
duped into jadeite's trap in episode 4, and is seen working out like a mad
dog. She and a few others are rescued by Sailor Moon. In episode 8, she is
seen briefly, gossiping about Ami. She does not appear to play a large role,
and is never seen again after Sailormoon R.
Deimos~ (Phobos is in Purple/Blue, and Deimos is in Red.) The faithful twins
chosen by the beautiful princess of Mars, guardians for the Sailor who's
planet is heralded as one of the brightest stars in the galaxy... Phobos and Deimos.
Born long ago on the star of Kronos, Phobos and Deimos were chosen over their
rival Red Crow, to look after Sailor Mars, and they've been at her side ever
since. When Rei was around 4 or 5 years old, she was sent to live with her
grandfather, when she met the two in their crow form. She took to them very
quickly, and sometimes takes them with her on missions. The two were probably
her very first link to her former life on the moon. In the anime, they are
only seen in crow form, but are very helpful, even warning her of danger in
some episodes. In the manga, they do not appear in human form, until
Sailormoon SuperS, when they help their princess realize her true potential.
They are often seen looking after the Hikawa Shrine, and love Rei as their
mistress. They are the first two characters outside of her grandfather and
mother that Rei feels a deep connection to. They were killed in a fight with
Sailor Red Crow, but it is possible that they too would have been reborn,
after the battle at the end of the Universe.
(Menards, Maenades, Maenads) ~ The lovely maidens at Helios's shrine. They
are some of the last surviving inhabitants of Elysion when Usagi and Mamoru
first see them. At first, they are incased in a cleansing crystal, shielded
by the curse of the Black Moon. After their revival, they lead Chibiusa and
her parents into the shrine where Helios lied unconscious in his cage. They
usually stay behind at Helios's shrine, probably in an effort to protect it,
and aren't seen much elsewhere, except for near the end of the SuperS manga.
They watched on as Chibiusa's love for Helios along with her new powers,
awakened him from a deadly sleep, and they watched on again, during the
pseudo coronation of her parents. They were omitted from the anime.
(Mika Cassidy) ~ Seen in only two episodes, this little redhead is considered
Shingo's first love. Mika is an energetic young child who loves to make
dolls. Her doll making skills are something she picked up from her mother,
Yoshiko Kayama (Mrs. Cassidy) who means well, but has no clue on disciplining
her child. She is first seen in episode 6, coaxing Chibiusa's uncle Shingo
into buying a Chanela pet. This is also where we learn that she quite often
looks before she leaps, as the pet turns out to be a trap set by Jedite. It's
mostly due to her buying into a trend, that the two become enslaved by the
Dark Kingdom for several days, before Shingo's older sister (Sailor Moon,
remember her?) saves them. Mika is seen again several episodes later,
furiously making dolls. It is revealed in the episode, that she had tried to
give Shingo one of her best dolls, but due to peer pressure, he felt he could
not accept it (since it was a doll) and he accidentally broke it. Shingo then
spent most of the episode in emotional turmoil, as he pondered over how to
make it up to her. Meanwhile, Mika was possessed by Nephrite, who then had
her expend most of her life-force into the dolls that she makes. The
evil-scary-spooky dolls then went on to attack the Senshi, until Sailor Moon
defeated the "Baddies of the day". After Mika was freed, she and
Shingo made up, and the next day, she presented him with a homemade Sailor
(Ironically, the doll looks like Zoicite when he dressed up as Sailor Moon, a
few episodes later.)
But when Shingo made mention of how cute he thinks Sailor Moon is, Mika
walked off in a stink, name calling Shingo along the way, thinking that he
likes Sailor Moon more than her. (Dudette ... that's his SISTER!! Cop a
clue...) Considering her abject violent tendencies and her strange
disposition, I'd say Shingo's better off without her.
Though only appearing in two episodes of the anime, Mika is mentioned as a
talk bubble over Shingo's head in the Materials Collection artbook.
Mercurious ~ A
minor character seen only in the Ami's first love story, his academic scoring
matches evenly with Ami. This sends her into a tailspin, and causes her to
over study to the point of exhaustion. Due to her obsession with him, the
other Senshi view him as her first love, though she really doesn't show much
affection to the very thought of her rival. His name is often mistaken as a
rewrite of Ami's pen name Mercury, but it's actually a play on his real name.
(His name is almost the same backwards... 'cept different.) He does not
appear anywhere else in the series, and is never mentioned again. He is
friends with Umino.
Cosmos~ A manga only character, she is the Guardian Fairy of the Starseed of
Sailor Cosmos. She appears only at the end of the series, after Sailor Moon
threw herself into the Cauldron, taking Chaos with her. After this, Sailor
Cosmos sent the Amazon Senshi home to the 30th Century, and faded away.
Guardian Cosmos offered Usagi two choices; either she and the other Senshi
could be reborn, and start everything over, or she and the team could
"live as they are". Usagi chose the latter, and Guardian Cosmos
sent the team back to their rightful place in time. Before the choice was
spoken, she told Usagi of how long ago, a shining star had come to the
Cauldron, carrying with her a small star's shell. And how the little star had
a shine similar to Usagi's. (She of course meant that it was Queen Serenity
who brought the little star). Before they met Guardian Cosmos, Sailor Cosmos
made mention that eventually; all of the Senshi would arrive at the 30th
Century. How this new future might turn out is a mystery many a Sailormoon
fan plays with, but if Kousagi is any indication, it's off to a decent start!
many of the characters here actually contributed friendship or wisdom, there
is one character in existence who serves as the permanent victim. Like the
"South Park" character Kenny, she appears
throughout the series; being killed and/or maimed has many clones of her
during the series, and yet despite her longevity ... was NEVER given a name!
Not much is known about this
mystery girl, other than she never ages. In some rare moments, she is either
seen with her mother, or two of her friends, but she is most often seen in
the background, or being maimed by one of the "main" villains. She
wears two pigtails, high atop her head, as the rest of her hair flies down
and around. Her body age is about seven years old, and unchanging, she
appears in various timelines. She is seen either with two bows on each side,
or two sets of "ball" ponytails, ala Cardcaptor Sakura. In
alternate scenes, she is seen with a small, skinny bow high atop her head, or
with a headband, as the rest of her hair swoops downward. Her best friend is
a short-haired girl, with a nasty attitude, who attends school with Chibiusa.
Her mother has short hair, and is never seen without her large earrings.
Diligent manga fans can catch
The Nameless Girl in the following scenes:

through the smog of death left behind by the Black Moon, when from out of

and the same face as the usual victim.
Act 3: Pigtailed schoolchild
"Mimi" is seen waving good-bye to Rei, as she boards the bus being
used by the enemy. She is kidnapped by Jadeite, but is later saved by Luna, Sailor
Moon, Sailor Mercury and the incumbent Sailor Mars. The mother seen in this
issue is identical to the Nameless One's mother, and bears a resemblance to
both Mr. Kaidou's fiancée, and to Mamoru's mother.
Act 11: After the Nameless One
dies, an older clone appears in the background, 3 pages later. Another one
with a bow in her head can be seen from behind in the next panel.

rushing to class. The child's hero is Sailor Moon, and she tries to have
Minako prove to her bullies that Sailor Moon exists. In the end, Mie and her
classmates are attacked by a Cardigan, but are saved by Sailor Moon, Sailor
Venus and Moonlight Knight. Mie then decides that Sailor Venus is her new
Two alternate clones exist is
episode 6. One is shopping for pets with her mother early in the episode, and
a younger copy appears later on, being comforted by Luna, after falling off
of her tricycle.
In the Codename Sailor V manga, she and her clones appear on numerous pages.
(Note- Page numbers come from the reprint mangas. Numbers may alternate after

character who's time was technically short, but impact not entirely
On rare occasion, the
Sailormoon fan is given a short glimpse into the backgrounds of the Inner
Senshi. These moments are fleeting, and no other family member is mentioned
for them, aside from their unseen husbands and their Parallel Senshi
Let's take a brief look at each family tree.
Mrs. Aino~ The
mother of Minako, Mrs. Aino is seen in the Codename Sailor V manga and is
described as being very bossy. This hellcat housewife on wheels is often fond
of ordering around her only child, having a list of chores ready for her at a
moment's notice. Her character is not seen in the regular Sailormoon series,
save but for one panel in one of the mini mangas, where Minako lists her as
one of her dislikes. Many a Sailor Venus fan list her as "The Screaming
Mr. Aino~ Minako's father. Mr. Aino is seen in a few panels, during Codename
Sailor V, and is a clumsy businessman. Not much is known about him, other
that he is Kenji Tsukino's lesser known clone. He is at the mercy of his
wife's constant bickering, and lives obliviously to the fact that his
daughter is Sailor V/Venus. Like his wife, he often times doesn't realize
that his only child is missing, and has never met the other Senshi. Neither
Mr. or Mrs. Aino are mentioned in the anime.
Ms. Mizuno~ Mother of Ami, this beauty works as a doctor, so she spends very
little time at home. She is incredibly proud of her only child, and usually
doesn't mind when her child is out on her own, as she enforced the knowledge
of responsibility upon her daughter. Though this may have led to some of
Ami's shyness, it's because of this independence that Ami became so mature.
In the anime, the unseen Ms. Mizuno managed to get adequate help for the
ailing Hotaru, and in the manga, she helped Mamoru learn of the Black Rose in
his chest. Her one regret is that her work at the Jyuuban Secondary
General Hospital keeps her away from her
beloved child. But nonetheless, she believes in Ami, and what she can
Charming and pretty, she is divorced from Ami's father.
The aloof stranger known as Ami's father. He and Ms Mizuno divorced when Ami
was younger, and he spends all of his time living very far away as a painter.
On occasion, he will send his daughter a postcard, or a painting of something
she might like. In both the anime and manga versions of Sailormoon SuperS, he
is seen from behind for a brief moment, painting away as usual. He travels
from time to time, never staying long in a rural territory.
Mr. Hino~ Diet member of the Democratic Independence party, Mr. Hino never
bothers to see his child, instead using his assistant Mr. Kaidou to spend time
on her in his absence. His image is his life, and he chooses to put his
career first. It is because of this that his daughter has grown to despise
him, and almost never speaks of him. He has never asked about how his
daughter is faring, outside of "idle chit chat". After her mother's
death, Rei decided that Mr. Hino would never be able to be a proper father
figure. She was sent to live with her grandfather at the Hikawa Shrine,
shortly there after, and she now sees her father perhaps once a year on her
birthday. Her grandfather sends her to T*A Private Girls' School, a campus
run by nuns...
Mrs. Hino~ Little
is known about her, other than Rei respects her. Mrs. Hino spent many of her
days, pining for the day her husband would return to her. But alas, Mr. Hino
chose a life of politics over his family. Sadly, Mrs. Hino died young,
leaving an emotional gap behind in the heart of her very young daughter. Even
as Sailor Mars, Rei wears her mother's pendant in the manga, a silent
reminder of the beautiful maiden, still missing her husband. The graceful
beauty she called mother.
(Anime version) ~ Standing in at barley 3'5, he is a master of flirting.
Though his soft and sweet side is not lost upon anime viewers, his lecherous
side knows no bounds, as he frequently goes out of his way to score a grope,
or a blush out of a pretty young thing, even chasing men in one episode! His
favorite type of woman is the cute but underage junior-high schoolgirl, who
can pretend to be submissive and who blushes at a whim. He often fights with
Rei, as she fears he is slowly but surely growing mad, however in times of
his need, the animosity ceases, and she reveals her loyalty to him. He is
also watchful over her, and wants to protect her, until the "right"
man comes along.
Grandfather Hino (Manga version) ~ Tender, youthful, tall and kind, Rei's
grandfather is seen only in a handful of issues. Though it's not unusual to
see him crack a few naughty jokes around the Senshi, he is usually more prone
to watch his grandchild from afar, knowing that one day, "She will fly
back to the place where she belongs." It is uncertain if he knows Rei's
true identity, but he does care for her, having raised her since she was
around 4 or 5 years old, and he wholeheartedly believes that what ever it is,
she will do marvelous things in her life.
Kengo Ibuki ~ The temperamental mystery cousin of Rei. He is seen only in
episode 183 during the StarS season, and works with pottery ... in many cases
to the brink of insanity. If he disapproves of a new vase or sculpture of his
own, he will go into a mad fit of rage, and destroy not only the work he has
just finished, but many of his other works as well, leaving behind a
chaotically wrecked area, in which to start over again. The only person who can
tame him is Rei, several years his junior. In fact, it was her love for his
creations that calmed him down while he was being used by the enemy, after
having his Starseed morphed. He lives alone in a wooded area of Japan, and rarely ventures
outside the panoramic setting of the forest. He does not exist in the manga,
and is usually forgotten, since his very existence is contradictory to the
story, since Rei's parents had no siblings.
Not much is
ever said of Mr. and Mrs. Kino. The two were killed in a plane crash, and
Makoto was left to live alone from an early age. It is speculated, that the
couple must have been well off, as Makoto never speaks of having a job, until
the Parallel Sailormoon manga. After her parents' death, Makoto moves around
quite a bit before settling into her abode, shortly before the beginning of
the series. It is because of the circumstances surrounding their death, that
Makoto hates airplanes.
Senshi~ Resembling "Chibi" versions of themselves, the Guardian
Senshi appear during the SuperS manga. These pocket Sailors represent the Senshis'
inner powers, and usually stand watch over each Sailor's castle. At a time of
complete duress, Guardian Mercury and Guardian Jupiter each made a trip to
see their "owners" , to help them awaken their powers as Super
Senshi. All 8 of them appear near the end of the SuperS manga together, and
aid the Senshi in reaching their final transformation, and in sending enough
power to Eternal Sailor Moon. The "pocket" Sailors never upgrade
their own abilities, always staying at "Super" mode. The only known
anime appearance of any of them, comes in the middle of the SuperS run, when
an enlarged Guardian Mercury helps Ami embrace her destiny.
