Codename wa: Sailor V!
Holding a long
stemmed rose bud
Sailor V! V for victory! V for Venus! |
Sailor V! I have unrivaled style!
The soldier of justice,
sailor-suited beautiful soldier,
I am Sailor Venus!
Everybody knows Sailor Venus from Bishoujo Senshi Sailormoon, but do
they know how it all really started? How it started with a thirteen
year old girl showing off in gym class and then landed - rump first - onto
a white cat with a gold crescent moon on his forehead? No? Follow along;
you might as well learn something, then.
My little Minako-chan shrine
won't be a simple regurgitation of information. Instead, everything I have
has been translated by myself and my Lonely Planet Japanese to
English Phrase Book and Dictionary, along with help from Udi Hoh and Heather Solomon. This shrine
includes translations of the Sera V manga [that I plan to mirror from
Alex Glover; with his permission, of course], images, brief
character information and anything else I may think of to add.
Cast of Characters
from the planet Mau. He has the ability of speech and was with Queen
Selenity during the Silver Millenium. He was sent to find the former
princess of Magellan Castle [of Venus] and help her to perform her duties
as the sailor soldier Sailor V.
Minako's Parents: The people who
raised Minako. Minako's father is fairly laid back while Minako's mother
seems to wear the pants in the family. She's forever getting into
arguments with her daughter. Neither parent knows of Minako's alter ego.
best friend. She looks an awful lot like one Mizuno Ami. She goes to
school with Minako and idolizes Sailor V. She often wishes that Minako
were more like Sailor V: responsible.
Amano: Amano is another school friend
of Minako's. He absolutely adores Sailor V and video games of all kinds.
He's also a fan of idol singers. Funny how he looks a lot like Umino Gurio
from Bishoujo Senshi Sailormoon, the geek who has a crush on Usagi in the
Sakurada Natsuna: This red headed bombshell is the
superintendent-general of the Metropolitan Police Board. She's also a
huge fan of Sailor V. She secretly has a poster of Sailor V hidden
behind a map of the city hung on her office wall. Once she found out that
Sailor V was Minako, she could often be seen trying to convince her to
join the police force as a special officer. Minako also calls this woman
'oneesan' (big sister).
Special Officer Wakagi Toshio, age twenty seven, is the officer under
Natsuna. He hates Sailor V and considers her to be a menace and blames her
for all his bad luck in capturing villians, which is ironic when Minako
makes him her Valentines Day sweetheart. Natsuna has charged Wakagi with
bringing Sailor V to her. Because he doesn't, at the end of book 2, volume
9, he's sent to the Siberian branch of the Metropolitan Police Board. When
he returns, he later learns of Sailor V's true identity; he begins, then,
to get over his grudges. Slowly.
Saijou Ace: Saijou Ace has
several identities. He shows up, first, as a vigilante similar to Sailor
V. He wears a white mask and uses the aces from playing cards as weapons.
Later, we find that he's a television star, playing the heroic Kaitou Ace,
best friend of girls everywhere. When Minako wins the chance to act in a
movie with Ace, we learn that he works for the Dark Agency (predessor to
the Dark Kingdom) and had been deeply in love with Princess Venus back in
the Silver Millenium. Back then, he had been known as Adonis, love of
Venus' life. He turned to the Dark Agency, becoming a soldier called
Danburite under the four Generals in hopes that he could somehow change
fate so that he and Minako might be together. To Minako, he gives her the
fortune: she will never have an ultimate lover. She will have only duty,
and that's to keep fighting for that one precious person.
Boss: Unknown person who contacts
Artemis and Minako through the special pen that was given to Minako. This
person (voice) instructs Artemis on how to train Minako as Sailor V and
often has information to help them fight the current enemies. The only
name that this voice is known as is Boss. [Speculation: It could be Queen
Selenity's spirit. Why? If you read the arc in the beginning of the
Bishoujo Senshi Sailormoon manga where Usagi comes to find that she's
Princess Selenity, the dead queen's spirit appears for a while to help
explain the past to her daughter and the other senshi.]
Sailor V's Items and Powers
Crescent Moon Compact: Minako has several uses for the compact.
First off, it's used for transforming into her Sailor V form and is
trigged by saying 'Moon Power Transform'.
Secondly, it's used to
disguise herself. Example: to defeat the Dark Agency idol Petite Pandora,
she transformed herself into a guy. This is activated by saying 'Crescent
Moon Power! Transform! Turn me into a ---'.
The compact isn't only a
transformation device. It can also be used as a way of showing truths.
When Minako looks into the mirror within the compact, we see her
reflection is that of Sailor V, complete with crescent moon upon her
forehead. When the mirror is aimed at one of the Dark Agency's minions,
their true, monstrous forms are revealed.
Business Card Sensors: A new item given to Minako by Artemis.
When held by an enemy, they give off an alarm.
Venus Microphone: A microphone given to Sailor V by Artemis. It
was used in the fight against Mike Makki.
Crescent Beam: An attack used from the Crescent Moon Compact.
She opens the compact to look like two crescent moons back to back, then
fires upon whoever it is she's fighting.
Crescent Super Beam: Another attack using the Crescent Moon
Compact. It's a lot like 'Crescent Beam', but a little more powerful. It's
developed when she fights against the gang leader - and Dark Agency minion
Crescent Slender Beam: Another variation of the 'Crescent Beam'.
This one was developed fighting against Dark Agency minion Debrine. It's a
pun on the fact that Debrine's evil act was making the girls of Tokyo fat
on Rainbow Chocolates just before Valentines Day.
Love Crescent Shower: A healing technique used from the Crescent
Moon compact. When aimed at the sky, it creates a powdery-like rain or
mist to fall over victims of the Dark Agency's evil spells or control. It
melts away the evil. Consequently, baddies caught under the same 'rain'
will melt away.
Venus Love Megaton Shower: The final, ultimate attack using the
Crescent Moon Compact. It shines the brilliant light of truth at the
attacker and dissolves them. It's capable of crumbling a building.
Venus Sulfur Smoke: A defensive attack developed during the
fight with Nyan-nyan, the cat spirit baddie. Sailor V claimed it came from
the atmosphere of the holy planet Venus when Artemis questioned her
about eating too many sweet potatoes for lunch and having a gas attack.
Venus Ten Billion Volt Rock 'N' Rouge: The attack resulting from
the use of the Venus Microphone.
V-chan Striking Katana: Developed during the fight with Wan-wan,
the dog spirit baddie. She summoned up a sword from who knows where and
shoved it through the stomach of Wan-wan.
Sailor V Kick: A powerful kick that Sailor V delivers when
Venus Iron Muscle Punch: A powerful punch developed in the
battle against Nyan-nyan, the cat spirit baddie.
Rolling Screw Sailor V Punch: Another very powerful punch she
develops when fighting the Dark Agency minion called 'Hibiskos'.
Sailor V Chop: A karate-like attack Sailor V has improvised into
V-chan's Rub Out Sailor V Chop: A painful looking attack Sailor
V developed fighting the Dark Agency minion, Debrine.
