I'm sorry to do such heavy cutting. We've got to be careful of spoilers on some of these pages. Let's discuss the spoilers issue in the main talk portion. For the time being we'll leave them out.

We probably want the main senshi pages to look like what Sailor Mercury is now, which is pretty much spoiler free.

Dooky pointed out that we probably don't want to worry about spoilers on the wiki, although we may want to label them. So should we revert the spoilers edit and bring back the info with a note?--WikiSysop 12:40, 16 May 2006 (MST)

Anyone could confirm that the attack Venus used in Act 46 of PGSM is also called "Rolling Heart Vibration" (I'm certain it's "XX Vibration")? Thx! 210 17:00, 10 July 2006 (MST)

Now that I'm more confident about this bit of fact, I've edited the article. If anyone find it wrong, pls correct it. 210 18:49, 10 July 2006 (MST)

Can anyone give me a translation (or at least the romaji) of the following kana script from Aino Minako's manga profile from the Moon Prism Box. I know the first part translates loosely as "Idol Chasing", but I am unsure of what the text in the brackets is. Link ~ Fighter4luv 05:17, 12 March 2007 (MST)

青田買い (aota kai) - Aota Purchase
Aota (青田), lit. green field, a surname.
A company name? I don't know the context, hence I've no idea if I've translated it properly.
--210 06:03, 12 March 2007 (MST)
It was just in Minako's profile as a "hobby". Hobby: Idol Chasing (????). I have no idea why those characters are there. Although, I just stuck it in a translator and it came up as: "recruiting of students" and I know that she attends idol things that recruit students... is that what it means? ~ Fighter4luv 06:24, 12 March 2007 (MST)
I've just read that page & my translation doesn't make sense there. And I don't know how your translator came up w/ that. There must be some hidden context I'm ignorant of. Anyone? --210 06:44, 12 March 2007 (MST)
Ah, 追っかけ can be used in the context of fans following their idols (like when an idol is scheduled to be interviewed at a radio studio, their fans will go to that studio at the scheduled date & time). --210 07:17, 12 March 2007 (MST)
I put into one of the Japanese translation pages from [1] and it came up as "recruiting of students". So the whole thing came to (with a few other translators for verification) "Hobby: Idol chasing (recruiting of students)". I guess that pretty much sums up what Minako does with her spare time. Such is relevant in Sailor Moon S {114} and Sailor Stars {192}. ~ Fighter4luv 07:02, 12 March 2007 (MST)
I've appended a note in my last comment (edit conflict lol). --210 07:17, 12 March 2007 (MST)
And I've also gone to the site you linked & find that 青田買い can be used in the context of companies picking brilliant undergrads for employment once they graduate (like when the field is still green). Maybe Minako longs for being scouted while still in junior high? And thx for letting me learn sthg new. ^^ --210 07:35, 12 March 2007 (MST)

Hmm...[edit]

She is also the only senshi to have her own independent series and canon.

'Independent canon' suggests that the Sailor V manga is not part of th Sailor Moon manga canon, while I was under the impression that is was. Any thoughts? dooky 13:36, 18 August 2006 (MST)

I assumed it meant something like "her own canon, independent series"... The V manga belongs to the same continuity as the Moon manga; at least I've never heard anyone state anything to the contrary. --Rosen 13:57, 18 August 2006 (MST)
The way that sentence is phrased really does make it seem like Sailor V is a different continuity - take the word "canon" out and it would sound better, IMHO. Kerochan no Miko 14:46, 18 August 2006 (MST)
But what if she really has her own canon that she keeps in her subspace pocket to fight pirates? (By taking pictures of them.)--WikiSysop 17:29, 18 August 2006 (MST)
Then it's Canon with a capital 'C'. And idol-chasing V-chan with a camera does sound kind of scary... --Rosen 01:48, 19 August 2006 (MST)

Formatting[edit]

I kept the capitalization of "Father" in the infobox because it's acting in place of his name there. That doesn't mean all the other words in the box need to be capitalized. Kerochan no Miko 06:12, 26 March 2007 (MST)

No problem. I've reverted my edit then. --210 06:40, 26 March 2007 (MST)

PGSM hairstyle[edit]

Since nobody seems to believe me about the odango, here's some proof:

odangogu4.jpg

She did have little odango in her hair. Kerochan no Miko 17:20, 16 April 2007 (MST)

Who doesn't believe you about that? lol I personally like this tidbit in PGSM - it makes her hairstyle more elaborate & interesting. --210 05:36, 17 April 2007 (MST)
^ Having read the edit history, I know why you said that now. --210 05:40, 17 April 2007 (MST)

=Love-Me Chain[edit]

She could also use the chain to remove evil influences from innocent people.
What does that mean? Kerochan no Miko 18:12, 18 December 2007 (MST)

Meh, it's 3:30 in the morning and I'm bored so, for future reference if nothing else, Venus used Love-Me Chain on Motoki in the Dark Kingdom arc, and it seemed to undue Beryl's brainwahing. I'm pretty sure that's what the note was referring to. --Sailor Biccy 00:25, 18 April 2008 (MST)

Earrings[edit]

About the «Super upgrade» during the scene of the anime in which we see Sailor Venus transform from normal to Super along with the other senshi, her earrings change from light orange to dark orange I think, I'm watching it right now it seem pretty clear that something, whatever it is, about her earrings changes. Perhaps someone has an explanation. I've got the video right here: [2]. --Sailor Simon 13:23, June 16 2009 (MST)

It's easier to see in a higher quality version of the video (like this one) but the earrings definitely flashed and did something during that transformation. And when you compare all of her transformation sequences (like here) it definitely looks like they were a darker orange at the end than in the previous ones. Interesting.

Choker Star, Earrings, Brooch, Back Bow[edit]

Choker Star - In the manga, each senshi has a gemstone in their respective color in the middle of the star on their chokers. This can be seen in the Materials Collection Artbook in the SuperS section on the same page that features her princess gown.

Earrings - In one of those big collage images of all the characters in the manga, the one for "R" features the heads of the senshi in chibi form. Sailor Venus has red earrings in that picture.

Brooch - Her brooch is more of an orange-ish yellow.

Back Bow - In the SuperS arc, her bow extends down past her knees, but not too far down. In the anime, it only extends to somewhere around her thighs. They are long when she becomes super in that episode, but not afterward.

Just wanted to say that the colors of the Senshi jewelry and accessories change all the time from one artbook to another, or even in the same artbook. Silver 15:13, 11 March 2010 (MST)

Girdle Referrence[edit]

Hi all, just a question about the referrence to "Aphrodite's girdle" in the trivia section; should it not be a referrence to Hippolyta's girdle? The one from Heracles' ninth labour? I ask because I can't recall ever coming across a referrence to a girdle belonging to Aphrodite/Venus, but (if I recall correctly) Ares/Mars presented his daughter Hippolyta with a belt that signified her right to rule the Amazons. Are these the same item? I don't think Hippolyta's had the power to influence affection, but I'm a tad fuzzy on that myth in general. If they're not the same item, do we keep the referrence to Aphrodite's, change it, or add a mention of Hippolyta's? Aphrodite's certainly sounds more relevant to Sailor Venus. Also, forgive my ignorance, how do I sign my comments? Just type my name? Cheers, Skylight.

1) Hippolyta has nothing to do with Aphrodite/Venus, and therefore the fact that she had a girdle would have no bearing here and would not be a valid trivia note on this article. Aphrodite did have one; that's why it's relevant and thus a trivia note.
2) And yes, it's a completely different girdle. If you click the Wikipedia links in that trivia note, you will find the following information. From girdle: Aphrodite, or Venus in Roman mythology, also wore girdles associated with lechery in later poetry. From Aphrodite: Hephaestus is overjoyed to be married to the goddess of beauty, and forges her beautiful jewelry, including the cestus, a girdle that makes her even more irresistible to men..
