Ayaka Komatsu pictured with a Sailor Venus advertisement in Shibuya 109, in Tokyo. For those of you who don’t know, she played Sailor Venus in the live action series “Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon.” Doesn’t she look adorable? BTW Shibuya 109 is amazing. I love the restaurants on the top floor! (From Ayaka Komatsu’s Facebook page)

TRIVIA

  • The personality of this Minako/Sailor Venus can be likened to the demeanors of Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune in Sailor Moon S. Venus was reclusive and hardened for personal reasons, and she was quite harsh when it came to discussing Sailor Senshi duties.
  • Traditionally, the bow on the back of her skirt has been yellow. It was orange in the live-action series, though.
  • The chain that Sailor Venus wore around her waist was likely inspired by the embroidered belt worn by Roman goddess Venus.
  • Despite being the first Sailor Senshi to be activated in the modern age, Sailor Venus was actually the last guardian to awaken her true power.
  • The strands of beads dangling from her hair bow disappeared by Act 17.
  • Sailor Venus and Sailor Jupiter were the only guardian Sailor Senshi to wear unique chains around their waists. However, only Venus used hers as a weapon.
  • Minako’s death was a rare case of a Sailor Senshi dying from natural causes, as opposed to being killed directly or indirectly by a villain.
