MAKO BEING A SWEETHEART
"Oops well I broke the shit out of that, Uhm, here?"
I love how nothing about Mako comes across the same as she was just a second ago.
From this, all suspicion and fierceness and action:
to this, cute and sheepish and friendly:
And they are both her in every single way.
MAKOTO FUCKING KINO IS THE GREATEST AND I WILL HEAR NO WORDS SAID OTHERWISE
Also how adorable is her mirror?
Shut the fuck UP.
Today is my dear friend Kat's birthday, so of course I had to make her something! Kat, I hope you had the awesomest birthday ever because you deserve it for being the awesomest friend ever <33
The bear was a gift from her parents; as a child, Mako treasured it, and after her parents died she cherished it even more. That bear helped Mako through many difficult nights after her parents’ deaths and was there to comfort her as she cried herself to sleep. Even as Mako grew older, she still loved her bear and slept with it every night.
Soon after becoming a Senshi and meeting the other girls, Mako invited them over for cake and tea at her apartment. Still insecure in her new friendships, she moved the bear from its place on her bed and tried to hide it elsewhere in her room; she was still guarded, and having her new teammates and friends laughing at her for still sleeping with a teddy bear would be more than she could bear.
When the girls came over, Usagi’s wandering eye (because, after all, how could anyone keep their eyes from wandering in an apartment full of such cute things?) caught the bear. She immediately hugged it and squealed over how cute it was, asking where Mako got it. Hesitantly, Mako explained how the teddy bear was a gift from her late parents and that she still liked to keep it close. However, to her surprise, the others chimed in with their own stories: Usagi enthusiastically told Mako about a much-loved and much-tattered stuffed rabbit, Ami had a blanket that her mother made for her, and even Rei had a stuffed crow that her grandfather had given her for her birthday (Minako wasn’t in the picture at this point, but her room looks like a freaking Toys-R-Us so it’s not like she can’t relate).
Mako never told them, but it was this incident that really bound her to her friends and caused her to truly open up to them. From that day on, the stuffed bear always had a proud place at the head of Mako’s bed.
Ages ago I was playing around with SAI and drew an alternative outfit for Sailor Venus. I’ve had vague ideas about doing the other scouts for a while now and scribbled this a few months ago, but never finished it. Had a bit of free time today and fancied having a go.Gotta love cute puffy short shorts!
And they both involve Makoto.
DO YOU SEE THIS BADASSERY
Sailor Moon, Chibi Moon, and Saturn are trapped in this mirror and everyone’s trying to break it down to get them out, but it’s incredibly strong—Mercury couldn’t even shatter it with her most powerful attack!
So what does Jupiter do? She pushes everyone aside, says I GOT THIS, and straight up, with no hesitation, PUNCHES THAT SHIT
AND IT FUCKING BREAKS WITH NO GODDAMN PROBLEM
It’s times like this when I grab my head and keen at the amazing amount of pure strength these girls have. People mock Sailor Moon for being a magical based show where all their attacks involve ribbons and hearts and sparkles and sometimes elements (no, really; this is what I’ve gotten out of people. As if a goddamn BLAST OF FIRE to the face wasn’t damn near impressive. Or being smacked with a hot metal chain shaped like hearts—Minako is goddamn HARDCORE GUYS), but what they clearly don’t see is that these girls don’t just rely on their abilities.
You mess with any of them and they will fuck you up. Physically. They don’t even goddamn blink.
Makoto’s gonna walk away with a bloody hand from that mirror and her main concern is gonna be Is Usagi okay? Why? Because punching a magically enabled mirror is no big deal to motherfucking Jupiter.
What I love about Mako is how strong she is. She’s the brawn of the Sailor Team; Naoko herself even said so in the Materials Collection. In terms of physical strength, the only other Senshi who can rival her is Uranus, and even then Uranus is more about agility than straight-up muscle.
Like Kat said, the girls don’t just rely on magic, they use their own bodies in attacks sometimes (Sailor V/Sailor Moon Kick, Sailor Body Attack, etc, as well as countless improvised physical attacks). They’re not afraid to get up close and personal with the enemy and smash their fucking faces in.
