"I am the Pretty Guardian Who fights for love and Justice. I'm Sailor Moon. In the Name of the Moon, I'll punish you"
— Sailor Moon's stock introduction.


Usagi Tsukino (月野 うさぎ, Tsukino Usagi) is the warrior of love and justice, Sailor Moon (セーラームーン, Sērāmūn). Originally from a prosperous civilization on the Moon known as the Moon Kingdom, she was reborn on Earth and re-awoke as the leader of the Sailor Guardiansi.

Nomenclature & Etymology

Etymology

Usagi is written in the hiragana spelling of the Japanese word for "rabbit" (うさぎ, usagi)

Tsukino, The kanji of Tsuki (月) translates to "moon" while the kanji for no (野) translates to "field" or "civilian". The syllable no (の) also indicates possession, so while the literal translation of her family name could be "moon field" or "moon civilian", others may translate it as "of the moon."

Her full name, when said in the Japanese naming-order, Tsukino Usagi, gives two additional puns: No-Usagi (野うさぎ), meaning "wild rabbit"; and Tsuki no Usagi (月のうさぎ), meaning "Rabbit of the Moon". The latter derives from an Asian folktale about a rabbit that is said to reside on the Moon.

Series Info

While running to school, a plush cat falls from the sky and lands on her head. She puts the cat on a rail and continues to run to school. It stands up and observes her afterwards.

Later when Usagi is home from school, she goes to bed to take a nap but finds the plush cat waiting for her. The plush cat moves and talks to her, leaving Usagi shocked and scared. It introduces itself as Luna and tells her she is a Sailor Senshi. It informers her that she must destroy a great evil, that can only be destroyed by a princess. Usagi thinks it's all a dream and goes back to bed. Luna then leaves behind a cellphone, and tells her to avoid the jewelry show at OSA-P, and leaves.

After waking up Usagi goes shopping. While shopping, she gets the feeling that Naru is in danger and goes to the jewelry show. Luna sees her again and gives her the Heart Moon Brooch. Luna and Usagi sneak into the jewley show when Luna tells her to take a picture of one of the models. Using the cellpone, Usagi takes a secret snap. She is then instantly disguised as the model. Afterwards, she enters the show through the back entrance to the hall.

The show finishes and Naru's mother comes on stage to steal energy from everyone there. Usagi appears and tells her to stop. However, Naru's mother -who was a youma in disguise- starts to attack her. Luna tells Usagi to transform using the phrase "Moon Prism Power, Make Up!" Usagi follows her orders and transforms into Sailor Moon for the first time.
