Hikaru Sorano was a character who only appeared in Codename: Sailor V.
Nomenclature & Etymology
Sora means sky while the character for no means field or civilian. Hikaru means shining or to shine. Hikaru is also more commonly a boy's name.
Hikaru bears a very strong resemblance to Ami Mizuno of the main Sailor Moon series. One notable difference, however, is that while Ami's hair is a royal blue, Hikaru's is black.
She was the best friend of Minako Aino since both of them were in elementary school. She was also a fan of Sailor V, but was unaware that Minako herself was Sailor V. She was the vice president of a volunteer club. She also looked similar to Ami Mizuno. Once the Sailor V manga ended, she was never seen or mentioned again.
- Based on her role in Codename: Sailor V, she appears to be Minako's counterpart for Usagi Tsukino's Naru.
- Hikaru made a brief appearance in the video game Sailor Moon: Another Story in Minako's dream.
