In the anime, Achiral appeared in just one episode ([[Dark Gate Completed? A Grade School in Danger|episode 81]]), under the service of [[Esmeraude]]. In this episode, he and Chiral target [[Chibiusa]]'s elemantary school and cause the students and school staff to fight each other. Chibiusa's classmate [[Momoko Momohara]] is injured, which causes Chibiusa to unleash her power. Chiral and Achiral are ultimately defeated by Sailor Moon.

In the manga, all droids look the same, with the exception of [[Veneti]] and [[Aquatici]]. In the anime, while all droids are different from each other, all are female and do not have the inverted black crescent moon on their foreheads, instead they have gems with the black crescent moon inside.

Achiral, along with his twin Chiral, worked for the Black Moon Clan, but their exact identities and roles were different in the anime and manga.

Anime[edit]

In the anime, Achiral was a Droid belonging to Esmeraude, and he appeared in episode 81.

Manga[edit]

In the manga, Achiral and his brother Chiral formed the Boule Brothers (or, in the TokyoPop translated version, the "Artificial Jewel Brothers"). They were Esmeraude's underlings, and according to the Materials Collection, were "twins like mirror reflections."[1]

The two participated in Code: 005, Operation: Remake. Along with Esmeraude and Chiral, he trapped Sailor Moon within a fake Crystal Palace. While trapped, a magnetic field prevented her from using her powers. Achiral was killed by the team effort of Tuxedo Mask's Tuxedo La Smoking Bomber and Sailor Venus' Venus Love-Me Chain.

Trivia[edit]

  • "Chiral" is a scientific term referring to an object that cannot be superimposed on its mirror image; an object which is non-chiral is called "achiral."
  • Unlike most Droids in the anime, Achiral and his brother Chiral did not have a gemstone on their bodies that was shown turning black when they were destroyed.
