Game Center Crown
Gēmu Sentā Kuraun
|City, Ward, and/or District||
Azabu-Juuban, Minato-ku, Tokyo, Japan
Motoki Furuhata (all versions)
Game Center Crown was an arcade where Usagi and her friends hung out and Motoki worked. Game Machine Joe once played there in the anime, as did Takurou Ootaku in Codename: Sailor V. There was a crane machine game and a Sailor V game in the arcade. Luna used the Sailor V machine to communicate with Artemis during the battle against the Dark Kingdom.
It was located below the Fruits Parlor Crown. Both establishments were run by the Furuhata family, who owned the building.
The outside of the arcade appears just like every other building in the area, there is a blue and yellow sign on the sidewalk near the entrance that advertises for the arcade. The words "Game Center Crown" are written on sliding glass doors that serve as the entrance. The buildings interior has tile floors and blue walls which have various game posters on them, usually for a new Sailor V game. There is also a staff room that Motoki takes Usagi to that has white tile floors and yellow walls where she rests in a green chair. In the room there are also decks, filing cabinets, chairs, table and boxes. On the walls are schedules and other employee information. The arcade use to appear quite often in the anime when Usagi had a crush on Motoki, so she visited there for much of the series. After she and Mamoru officially became a couple, the arcade started to appear less often.
MangaThe place made its appearance on the original Sailor Moon manga, and also Codename: Sailor V.
The arcade stood on top of the Lunar Command Centre, which could be accessed via one of the arcade's Sailor V game stations. The Sailor V video game was used as training for the Senshi and Sailor V, herself, used it to communicate with Usagi. When Tuxedo Mask was brainwashed, he used Makoto to infiltrate the base and a fight ensued. During the fight between the Inner Senshi, the brainwashed Tuxedo Mask and Queen Beryl, the building suffered massive damage, as the backlash blew a hole from the command centre straight up through the roof before Mercury warped the site of battle from the actual arcade to the hyperspace plane, much to the shocked terror of Furuhata Motoki.
