PGSM Reunion - Sawai Miyuu Blog Translation

2014.04.16 - Original Entry Here

10 years is both a long and a short amount of time.

I might not need to say anything.

I think the pictures say it all.

My thoughts, your thoughts.

That’s all.

I’ll write more later if I feel like it.

“Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon.”

I’m grateful to have met them all.

My best friends in our guardian poses.

First appearance: Act 25

TRIVIA

  • Her name stems from the Middle French “sérénité” and the Latin “serenitas.” The word “serenity” is defined as the state of being serene or calm. Queen Serenity and Princess Serenity were both inspired by the Greek Moon goddess Selene, who fell in love with a mortal named Endymion.
  • Princess Serenity did not have an “odango” hairstyle like her manga and anime counterparts. She also had black hair rather than blond or white.
  • While the Dark Kingdom caused the destruction of the original Silver Millennium in the manga and anime, a distraught Princess Serenity was responsible for destroying the Moon Kingdom as well as the Earth Kingdom in this series.
  • The Silver Crystal belonged solely to Princess Serenity, and it was not passed down from mother to daughter.
  • Although Princess Serenity played a huge part in past life events, she rarely appeared in the modern story. Instead, Princess Sailor Moon was seen more often.
