Minako Aino (愛野 美奈子, Aino Minako) is the civilian identity of Sailor V and the present-day incarnation of Sailor Venus (セーラーヴィーナス, Seeraa Bu~iinasu). She is the 5th Sailor Senshi to be introduced and join the Sailor team. She is also the real leader of the Inner Sailor Senshi.
Minako retains her appearance from the manga and anime with her long blonde hair and a signature red bow.
Sailor Venus' appearance is similar to her manga and anime appearances.
In older musicals, her shoulder pads were orange (sometimes purple or dark blue) and her glove rims were purple or dark blue. All Sailor Senshi in older musicals had their own color as shoulder pads and their bow color as glove rings.
Sailor Venus, like all Sera Myu Sailor Senshi, has gold trimmings on her bows, shoulder pads, gloves, skirt, belt, uniform, and collar.
In the musicals, Minako's character was not explored in as much depth as in the other versions, but her personality generally matched that of her anime counterpart: overly loud at times, a little obsessive, and slightly perverted. She was always true to her mission as a Sailor Senshi, however, and would do what was necessary to protect her friends. Sailor Venus had one image song, "Traditional the Grace ~Ai no Arashi~".
Minako, along with the other members of the Sailor Team, arrives at the game show to play a couple of games. While there, Minako finds a romance app called I Am Your Cupid. She and the Sailor Team get their phones out and play the app. After playing it for about a minute or so, the team gets bored with it.
