"Yes. New futures will always continue to be created. And there, light and darkness, war and hope, life and death, joy and pain, will all exist. Everything, this is this universe"
— Usagi's quote from Act 59 Stars 10


Usagi Tsukino is the present-day form of Princess Serenity and the civilian identity of Sailor Moon. This is the original depiction of the character, who was created by Naoko Takeuchi.

A carefree sailor-suited schoolgirl, she can transform herself into Sailor Moon, leader of the series' primary heroines, the Sailor Senshi. She is the love interest and future wife of Mamoru Chiba.

Profile

Usagi is a schoolgirl who lives in 20th Century Tokyo. She likes goofing off and playing video games and is seen as a bit of a crybaby at first. Throughout the series, she matures and learns how to make descions for herself as well.

At the start of the series, she is 14 years old and she is in her 2nd year of middle school. Near the end of the series, she is 16 years old and she goes to high school.

Appearance

Usagi has long blonde hair that she usually keeps tied into two buns/pigtails (odango hairstyle), and blue eyes. She is described as flat-chested and being one of the shortest senshi, said to be standing at 4'11" (possibly 5'0" or a bit taller in later volumes).

Biography

Codename: Sailor V

Before she appeared in Sailor Moon, she appeared in Codename: Sailor V in both Vol.5 - The Machinations of the Dark Agency and Vol.6 - Showdown! Sailor V vs. Cyber-Girl Warrior Lurga. In Vol.5, she was seen looking at a poster advertising the Sailor V game and in Vol.6, she and Naru where outside of Game Center Crown, which was where Usagi wanted to go inside the game center and play the Sailor V game but Naru, who was afraid that they might see one of their teachers and get in trouble, stopped her.

Development

Usagi's signature hairstyle derives from a "good luck charm" of the artist's. In college, Naoko Takeuchi would put her own hair up in odango before difficult class exams.[1] By the intermediate stages of development, Takeuchi planned to have the character's hair be blonde in civilian form and change to silver when she transformed, but she was told by her editor that silver hair would be too plain for cover art. Stylistic use of differently-colored hair does sometimes appear in later artwork. Out of all the Sailor Senshi, Usagi's personality is closest to Takeuchi's own personality at the time that the series was created.[2]

Certain background details of Usagi's character were chosen symbolically for instance, her Western astrological sign is given as Cancer, which in astrology corresponds to the moon. In reference to a popular Japanese belief, her blood type is given as O, supposedly indicating friendliness, optimism, and carelessness.

Etymology

The kanji of Usagi's surname translate as "moon" ( tsuki?) and "field" ( no?). Her given name is in hiragana (うさぎ usagi?) and so its meaning is not inherent, but the word itself means "rabbit" and this is used as a pun frequently throughout the series, even in her hairstyle and possessions. Her entire name is structured as a pun, as the syllable "no" indicates a possessive, so that her name can also be understood as "Rabbit of the Moon." This derives from a Japanese folktale about the rabbit that is said to be visible in the Moon's face, much like the Western Man in the Moon. The English-language manga gives her the nickname Bunny to partially preserve this pun; many other localizations use the name Bunny as well. "Usagi" is not a common given name in Japan.

Trivia

  • Usagi was the only character to appear in all of the acts in the manga.
  • Usagi's family take their names from the real family members of the metaseries' creator, Naoko Takeuchi.
  • In the manga, she is kissed by Mamoru Chiba, Prince Diamond, Seiya Kou and Haruka Tenou (twice).
  • She is hinted to have a physical relationship with Mamoru; she was seen sleeping with him in the last volume of the manga.
  • It is ironic that Usagi hates carrots, as rabbits are usually depicted eating carrots, and Usagi means bunny or rabbit.
