Sailor Neptune

Sailor Neptune was the seventh Sailor Senshi introduced in the series. Unlike the original Inner Senshi, she was not awakened by the moon cats in 20th Century Tokyo, but rather awoke on her own. Her civilian identity was Michiru Kaiou, or Michelle in the dub.

She was introduced in the Sailor Moon S season of the anime and Infinity arc of the manga. Sailor Neptune fought alongside her partner and lover Sailor Uranus in defending the Solar System from outside threats. In both versions of the story, she was elegant, sophisticated, capable of sharp anger, and sometimes cold. She was fully dedicated to her duty as a Senshi.

Sailor Neptune was given specific titles throughout the various series, including "Soldier of the Deep Waters," "Soldier of Embrace," and "Soldier of Affinity." Her personality was no different from when she is a civilian, although certain powers are unavailable to her in that form. Her respective element was the sea or ocean (not just water in general like Sailor Mercury).

Powers

Transformations

Attacks

  • Deep Submerge - Sailor Neptune sent a blue-green sphere shaped like Neptune toward her target.

Costume

  • Sailor Neptune's (in Sailor Moon S) dominant color was sea-green (tiara gem, choker, collar, gloves, skirt, heels) and her accent color was navy blue (bows). Her earrings were white studs, her collar had no stripes, and her choker had a sea-green gem with gold accents attached to it. Her shoulder pads were the same as the others. Her gloves were wrist-length (rather than elbow length). Her heels had criss-crossing straps up the ankles, like ballet slippers.
  • After the "Super" upgrade (in Stars) her earrings remained the same, her choker had a star attached to it, her collar had one white stripe, the center of her front bow was a heart, she had one translucent shoulder pad, and the back waist bow was enlarged and lengthened. The length of her gloves remained the same.

Manga

Powers

Transformations

  • Neptune Planet Power, Make Up - Used this phrase to transform into Sailor Neptune.

Attacks

  • Deep Submerge - Sailor Neptune sent an energy blast at the enemy.
  • Submarine Reflection - Sailor Neptune used the Deep Aqua Mirror to either reveal an enemy's weakness or send an energy blast.

Costume

  • Sailor Neptune's first costume in the manga was identical to the anime version. After the "Super" upgrade, her costume was almost identical to the anime version, although the length of her gloves extended to her elbows.
  • After the last upgrade in the Stars arc, her choker was V-shaped and the center of her front bow was a green five-pointed star. She had round light green puffed sleeves with two strips of darker fabric attached to the bottom. Her gloves became longer, reaching to her upper arms. Her belt consisted of two ribbons, one sea green and one light green, with two long, thin back ribbons, clipped together by a golden five-pointed star. Her back bow was light green. Her skirt became two-layered, the top layer being sea-green and the bottom a lighter green. Her boots were knee-high and white, and had a sea-green V-shaped border with a golden five-pointed star at the top. Her tiara gem was a sea-green five-pointed star and her earrings were sea-green, dangling five-pointed stars.

Musicals

In the musicals, Sailor Neptune was played by Kahoru Sakamoto, Chikage Tomita, Miyuki Fuji, Hiroko Tahara, Sara Shimada, Yuuka Asami, Tomoko Inami, and Takayo Ooyama. Although she did not have her own image song in the musicals, she did share duets with Sailor Uranus in "Chou Bi! Uranus to Neptune" and "Harsh! Saint Cry!!," which acted as image songs for the both of them.

Costume

Sailor Neptune's sailor fuku in the musicals was faithful to her costume in the third season of the anime. Her collar, choker, shoes, sleeves, glove fittings, and the top layer of her skirt were green, and her bows and the bottom layer of her skirt were blue. Her sleeves were decorated with dark green beads. The ornament in the center of her front bow was a sea-green cross, in the center of which was a golden circle decorated with a ring of green gems. Her choker ornament was a golden cross with a green gem in the center, and she wore golden cross earrings. The trim on her costume and the stripes on her collar were all gold.

Trivia

  • Some people propose the theory that Sailor Neptune was an active Senshi even before Sailor V and Sailor Moon.
