Gosh, are some of you really Sailor Moon fans? Why had nobody told me anything before? I’ve been a Sailor Moon fan for over 10 years now and I used to be quite active in the fandom a while back. I definitely do consider myself a big Sailor Moon fan and I am pretty knowledgeable about it, too, having watched the 90’s anime, read the manga, read the Sailor V manga, watched the live action, some of the earlier musicals… and the not-so-well-done Crystal too, of course, though I do blame the manga for that, as I don’t like it very much either. But enough about that, now about my favourite Senshi…
My three favourites are Uranus, Neptune and Venus. It is highly likely that either Uranus or Neptune is my ultimate favourite, though I can’t decide between the two of them for now. Anyhow, I like Uranus a lot for her sophisticated, aristocratic and flirtatious personality and for being a very strong and independent young woman. I also like her for being an anti-hero too, and having a more complex attitude towards their duty together with Neptune in the beginning. I just like it a lot how she carries herself and her interactions with the other characters, how she is mature and even cold at times, yet is not always right about everything and even though mature, is still growing.
As for Neptune, I like her so very much for the aristocratic young woman she is and how she is such a beautifully flawed character. Indeed, many wouldn’t find her flawed and say she’s the perfect young woman but I think it is the total opposite. Michiru is cunning, cold and sort of an anti-hero, yet all of that is integrated with her intelligent, elegant and artistic self, making such a complex character. I also like her a lot for her association with the arts, that I’m very into myself. She truly has that maturity yet doesn’t put others down with it, always being clever and deftly making the best of a situation. She truly has that charm of the elite.
And Venus is my favourite from when I was younger, well not really my favourite from the first time I watched Sailor Moon, but she became a favourite later on when I started getting into the franchise again. I really like how flamboyant and extravagant she is, sly, even, yet has a serious side. I like her storylines, portraying her as a complex character and her attitude in general is pretty cool.
Ha ha, sorry I made this so long, and I’d rather continue, but as you can see, I am passionate about Sailor Moon and very much into its characters.
