Sailor Neptune

Sailor Neptune was the eighth 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.


Sailor Neptune









Sailor Neptune's (S, SuperS) dominant colour was teal (tiara gem, earrings, choker, collar, gloves, skirt, heels) and her accent colour was navy blue (bows). Her earrings were white studs, her collar had no stripes, and her choker had a teal 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.


Takayo Ooyama as
Sailor Neptune

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.


  • Sailor Neptune seems to be the only one who awoke to her Senshi powers without the help of the moon cats (like the Inner Senshi) or the involvement of other Senshi (like Sailor Uranus or Sailor Saturn.)
  • Sailor Neptune and her partner Sailor Uranus were the only two Senshi apart from Sailor Moon to be involved in a long-lasting relationship in the canon.
  • Sailor Neptune and Sailor Uranus were said to be cousins in the Cloverway English dub of Sailor Moon, causing a stir and jokes of incest among fans.
  • Some people propose the theory that Sailor Neptune was an active Senshi even before Sailor V and Sailor Moon.
  • In 1998 Irwin released a line of Senshi of the Outer Solar System dolls well before Sailor Moon S aired in North America. On the boxes of the Sailor Neptune dolls she was given the civilian name "Nerissa".
