Setsuna Meiou

Setsuna Meiou was the civilian identity of Sailor Pluto, and appeared in the anime and manga series.


As Sailor Pluto, she guarded the Space-Time Door, and she originally could not leave her post, which left her very lonely. However, Neo Queen Serenity allowed her to leave her post to help the other Senshi of the Outer Solar System in the Death Busters Arc/Sailor Moon S, where she took on the identity of Setsuna Meiou, a K.O. University student studying physics.

Setsuna dreamed of being a designer one day. She was good friends with Chibiusa and Diana, and was also very close to Hotaru Tomoe after the end of the Death Busters crisis. In the manga she lived in a house with Haruka Tenou, Michiru Kaiou, and Hotaru in the Dead Moon Arc and Stars Arcs.


Chibiusa's incantation to activate her Key of Space-Time referred to a "Time Guardian" and "the father of the guardian, Chronos," which has led some fans to speculate that Sailor Pluto was the time guardian and the daughter of Chronos. There is, however, no canon evidence that she had blood relatives.

However, Setsuna became part of an adoptive family with Haruka, Michiru, and Hotaru when they took up residence together.


Fan Canon

  • In Fan canon Sailor Pluto and King Endymion are a popular couple due to some fans' interpretations of comments made by Sailor Pluto about Endymion in the manga. The idea of Pluto being in love with Endymion is mentioned in some of the musicals.



  • 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 Pluto dolls, she was given the civilian name "Celia".
  • Setsuna has a mortal fear of cockroaches.[1]
  • Her civilian first name has the same Japanese pronunciation of a Buddhist term meaning "split second" (刹那), which was imported from China (in kanji character format) but originated in India (in Sanskrit).
