Makoto Kino is the civilian identity and present-day incarnation of Sailor Jupiter. This is the original depiction of the manga character created by Naoko Takeuchi.

Profile

Makoto is a Japanese teenager who lives in Azabu-Juuban, Minato Ward, Tokyo, Japan. In Act 17, it is revealed that her parents died in an airline accident when she was younger and Makoto lived all by herself ever since. After she got a sense that there was a place she had to be, she transferred to Juuban Municipal Junior High School, the same school Usagi Tsukino and Ami Mizuno go to. When she transferred, a rumor went around saying that she was expelled from her old school. In Chapter 1 - The Melancholy of Mako-chan, the first story of the Exam Battle series that takes place in the Infinity arc, it is shown that Makoto is very scared of airplanes because of the accident. The story also revealed that Makoto likes cooking and bargain hunting. Also, Makoto is 15 years old in the Infinity arc. In the Dream arc, she and the other Sailor Senshi (excluding Rei, Chibiusa, Setsuna, and Hotaru) attend Juuban Municipal High School. In Act 42, it is shown that Makoto dreams of getting married, opening up a small flower shop and cake bakery, and growing up to be as pretty as Michiru and as strong as Haruka.

Appearance

Makoto Kino is a teenage girl who has long brown wavy hair that she usually keeps tied up with a ponytail holder with two green balls, and green eyes. Makoto is the tallest out of the Inner Senshi, standing at 168cm or 5 feet 6 inches. Also, Makoto is almost always shown wearing her pink rose earrings.

Development

Makoto was present in the original propsoal for the Codename: Sailor V anime; however, she was called Mamoru Chino, a name similar to Mamoru Chiba. It was later confirmed this character was eventually turned into Makoto, her character was meant to be not only tough, but the leader of a female gang and a smoker. Also, her hair was straight instead of wavy.

Etymology

Makoto: Makoto's first name in Japanese is written in hiragana as "まこと", which can be read as "実", which can mean "trust" or "sincerity" in Japanese.[2][3] Originally, it was "Mamoru," meaning "to guard/protect."

Kino: The kanji of "Kino" (木野) can translate to "wood field" or "tree field."

Her name completely in hiragana would be "きのまこと" (Kino Makoto).

Trivia

  • Makoto's very first appearance in the manga was at the end of Act 4, even though her identity wasn't revealed until Act 5.
  • The source of Makoto's income has been a debate among the fans, seeing as she is only 14-16 years old. An explanation behind how she supported herself was never given, but a popular theory is that she lives off an inheritance left behind by her parents.
  • Makoto's school uniform was further representation of her tough girl status, that being the style for those girls at the time.
  • In the manga, it is shown that Makoto keeps many plants in her apartment.
  • In the first "Chibiusa Picture Diary", Makoto is seen eating a chocolate cigarette. However, there are many fans who believe she was smoking an actual cigarette.
