Makoto Kino (木野 まこと, Kino Makoto) is the civilian identity and present-day incarnation of Sailor Jupiter (セーラージュピター, Seeraa Jupitaaa).

Nomenclature & Etymology

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).

Appearance

Civilian

Makoto is a teenage girl who fair skin and a slim complexion, though she is slightly more muscular than her most of her fellow Sailor Senshi. She has big green eyes, long brown wavy hair that she usually keeps tied up with a ponytail holder with two green balls, and is almost always shown wearing her pink rose earrings. She is also the tallest out of the Inner Sailor Senshi, standing at 168 cm or 5 feet 6 inches.

Sailor Senshi

Sailor Jupiter wears a sailor suit with two colors: green (scarf, boots, skirt, choker, gem of tiara, button of front bow, end of sleeves on gloves) and pink (both bows, earrings). The rest of her outfit is white. Her tiara is the same base color as the rest of the Sailor Senshi's; gold. She is also seen wearing a light blue hair accessory as well as a pair of pink rose earrings.

As Super Sailor Jupiter, she wears an upgraded version of the Sailor Jupiter sailor uniform. The entire uniform is the same. The only things that have changed are the length of her back bow and the shape of the button on her front bow (circle to heart), along with a yellow star added to her choker. Her boots are also the same.

As Eternal Sailor Jupiter, she wears an upgraded version of the Super Sailor Jupiter uniform. The scarf is still dark green, along with the first layer of her skirt. The second layer of the skirt is transparent green. Her front bow remains pink, while the back bow changes from pink to light green and has ribbons of the same color flowing from it. Her puffy white sleeves are now replaced with transparent green big puffy sleeves with the remainder of the sleeve being two dark green puffs. Replacing the usual button on her front bow is a green star-shaped button, the oval-shaped gem on her tiara is now a green star-shaped green gem, and the plain collar now has a green star attached to it. Instead of the original dark green tie-up boots, Eternal Sailor Jupiter now has a pair of white boots with a strip of dark green at the top with a gold star in the middle. Jupiter is still wearing her hair accessory but her pink rose earrings have been replaced by green dangling 5-pointed star earrings.

Sailor Jupiter is also the princess of the planet Jupiter. She wears a green gown with two green roses, one on each side, that goes down to her toes and splits in two right above the knee and trails back. Her hair is tied up with a green ribbon with a pink rose in the middle. She has a green choker that is tied in a bow a the back, with the streams running down her back. Her symbol is always on her forehead. In addition to the choker, she also wears a necklace. She also has green heels with a strap across the ankle. She dwelt in Io Castle.

Background

Makoto was an only child who lived with her parents until one fateful day when her parents died in a plane crash, leading her to develop a fear of airplanes. She would learn how to take care of herself and develop impressive cooking skills in the process.

One day, Makoto tried to confess her feelings to a boy she liked, but he rejected her. She would later transfer schools, partly because of heartache, but also because she felt a greater purpose calling her elsewhere.
