Hiromi Matsuno was an anime-only character who appeared in episode 21. She was an animator working on the Sailor V anime, along with her best friend, Kazuko Tadashita. The two of them bought special pencils before they started working together, and promised not to use them until they had become real pros.

She was targeted by Nephrite, who planted the twin Youma, Castor and Pollux, into her pencil. Because of the Youma's influence she became angry with Kazuko, thinking that Kazuko's work was better than hers, and began to use her special pencil out of a desire to do better. Hiromi decided to kill off Sailor V at the end of the anime, but Kazuko refused.

After the Sailor Senshi saved Hiromi from Castor and Pollux, the two friends confessed that they had both already used up their pencils, as they were each worried that the other would leave her behind.


  • In the English dub, Ellen Dubin gave "Lori" a Southern accent, even though Hiromi did not originally speak with an accent. However, according to Ellen, this was not planned, but the director went with it.
