Pink Ladies by Azure-and-Copper
I love the Quartet so much better this way! Especially their hair! I’ve always wished that Naoko had made it less crazy. XD
The Sailor Quartet’s fukus
The Quartet’s fuku is interesting in that it combines elements from both the first and final fukus of the main Sailor Team.
Elements from first fuku
- Single-layer skirts
- The back bows
- Unadorned chocker
- Unique earrings (all of the other Eternal forms have uniform star-shaped earrings)
Elements from final fuku
- “Bubble” sleeves (the noticeable difference, however, is that the Quartet’s sleeves are a solid white unlike the others’, which are opaque and are colored corresponding to the main fuku color. In addition, the strips of fabric below the bubble are also colorless.)
- Knee-length boots
- Star-shaped brooch and tiara gem
- Gloves that reach the upper arm
Three more pages of my on-going 30th century Chibi Usa doujinshi. That’s all I have for now, but I hope you guys like it and thanks for all the support! ^^
This looks fantastic! I’m excited for more!
YOU UPDATED AGAIN THANK YOU SO MUCH
You know Ves Ves was called the beast master of the Dead Moon Circus? I think she has a natural affinity for animals and that stayed with her when she became Sailor Vesta. After she starts living a “normal” life (I put quotations on normal because how normal is the life of a Senshi?) she still stays strongly connected with animals.
- She dream is to become a veterinarian
- She has the ability to speak to animals (meaning she understands what they’re saying)
- She has a large number of pets
- Many of her attacks involve summoning animals made out of energy to attack
I seriously love what the artist did with their hair! I’ve always been disappointed that Naoko never changed their hair when they became Senshi. Those hairstyles are cool, but just way too wonky and attention-grabbing! XD
I would LOVE to see them have hairstyles like this normally!
Page 5 of 12 of 2nd comic I’m translating, Gathering. Ugh, onomatopoeias. Why does English have so few of them? (And why is that word so hard to spell?) The first one, “gura” is stagger or move shakily, which I think rumble covers pretty well, but the second one is “gatan”, which is the sound of something collapsing. English doesn’t have a very good equivalent, so I went with both crumble and crash to try and get the point across. The final one, “kyu” means tightening, which is probably supposed to be Usagi “tightening her resolve”, which would be described as gritting or clenching her teeth on this side of the Pacific.
I’ll be so glad when I’m done with page 11. Page 12 has no text, so I’ll be able to upload the final page as soon as I’m done with 11.
Look at Pallas holding on so protectively to Lady Serenity! So cute!
Sailor Quartet speeches
Once again, this is just me playing around with the attributes of the Sailor Quartet. Each senshi has her own introductory speech, so here’s what I think the Quartet’s would go like. I also incorporated the titles I came up with for them. I’m REALLY iffy on Juno’s and Pallas’s, so these will probably change when I come up with something better.
“The flower spreading throughout the world! Soldier of harvest, Sailor Ceres!”
“The heart that can’t be tamed! Soldier of the hearth, Sailor Vesta!” (Vesta’s theme is animals, which can be tamed. Vesta’s fiery heart, of course, cannot)
“The rising of the goddess! Soldier of Vitality, Sailor Juno!” (I’ve made Hera, aka Juno, the Queen of the Gods, a big part of Sailor Juno’s character because there’s not much else to work with)
“The never ending cycle! Soldier of Endeavor, Sailor Pallas!” (a cycle is like a sphere, which in my head is significant to Pallas’s theme of spheres. It also refers to endeavor; an endeavor is trying to achieve something, and this process can repeat infinitely when new desires are formed)
Senshi titles for the Sailor Quartet
Every soldier has a title; for example, Sailor Moon is the soldier of Love and Justice and Sailor Mars is the soldier of Flames and Passion. The Sailor Quartet, Chibiusa’s team, never receives a title. I decided to come up with titles fitting for them, mostly based on their mythological namesakes.
Sailor Pallas- Soldier of Endeavor
Sailor Ceres- Soldier of Harvest
Sailor Vesta- Soldier of Hospitality
Sailor Juno- Soldier of Vitality
Pallas Athena was the patron goddess of heros and of heroic endeavor. Ceres was the goddess of the harvest, and harvest, in figurative terms, can also be the product or result of an action. Vesta was the goddess of the hearth and home, which is often associated with hospitality. Juno, the queen of the gods, is often connected with with the idea of vital force, fullness of vital energy, and eternal youthfulness.
This was fun to think up, and I hope people like it, too! :D
