"Yes. New futures will always continue to be created. And there, light and darkness, war and hope, life and death, joy and pain, will all exist. Everything, this is this universe."
— Usagi Tsukino, Act 59 - Stars 10

Usagi Tsukino is the main character of all continuations of the Sailor Moon series. In all of these continuations, she is the civilian form of the title character Sailor Moon and the present day reincarnation of Princess Serenity.

Profile and Personality

Usagi is a Japanese schoolgirl who resides in Azabu-Juuban, Minato Ward, Tokyo, Japan. She is first presented as a goofy, clumsy, and friendly teenage girl who tends to be a bit of a crybaby. It is also shown that she does not like schoolwork and as a result, she doesn't fare well in some of her classes. In addition to this, she is often seen as immature and is somewhat of a glutton, the latter trait being very notable in the first anime. As the series progresses, she starts to become less of a reluctant and impetuous heroine and grows into a more mature one instead.

Appearance

In all versions of the series, with the exception of Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, Usagi has blonde hair that she styles in the odango hair style and blue eyes though in the musicals, her eye color changes depending on the actress playing her. She is often seen wearing her school uniform.

In PGSM, her hair is black, her bangs are straight, and, like all of the other continuations of the series, she styles it in the odango style. Her eyes are also brown.

Development

In the Mixx translation of the tankoban edition of the first volume of the manga, Naoko noted in an interview with Mixx that she wanted to create a character closest to her own personality when making Sailor Moon. This character eventually turned out to be Usagi. Additionally, Usagi's hairstyle was often worn by Naoko Takeuchi during her time as a university student. The hairstyle was Naoko's "good luck charm" for exams and difficult classes.[1]

Trivia

  • The kanji of Usagi's surname translate as "moon" (月, tsuki) and "field" (野, no). Her given name is in hiragana (うさぎ, usagi) and so its meaning is not inherent, but the word itself means "rabbit" and this is used as a pun frequently throughout the series, even in her hairstyle and possessions.
    • Her entire name is also structured as a pun, as the syllable "no" can indicates a possessive, if it would have been written as の, so that her name can also be understood as "Rabbit of the Moon." This derives from a Japanese folktale about the rabbit that is said to be visible in the Moon's face, much like the Western Man in the Moon.[2]
  • She has had a couple of image songs in every continuity of the Sailor Moon series, sans the manga:
