Shuu Shiotsuki as Sailor Uranus Sayaka Fujioka as Sailor Neptune
What are your views on each other’s character?
Sayaka: If I want to do something, she will help me to fulfil it, a very good person
Shuu: Eh? Hold on hold on. We’re not talking about the impression of me, it should be about Haruka? lol
Sayaka: There are too many similarities between Shuu-san and Haruka, I don’t even know from which viewpoint I should start lol. Haruka said before “Man or Woman, it doesn’t matter”. The charm which they have is not something a man or a woman exude.
Shuu: I think that Uranus is the strongest fighter, but mentally, it is Neptune who is the strongest
Shuu: Haruka and Michiru are like puzzle pieces which fit each other, they complement each other and they “match”. Well, Haruka is mentally weak.
Sayaka: I can understand that. She would feel weak halfway through the battle.
Shuu: When facing the enemy, she would be the first to charge and attack, but when the enemy is too strong, Haruka might be “ahh, i can’t” and her mind would start to weaken and lose hope.
Sayaka: Yes, at this time, Neptune would say “This is not the time to say such things”. This is the part where it shows how strong she is mentally.
Shuu: Yes yes lol
Sayaka: The two of them have very good balance.
Shuu: However, sometimes, they don’t engage in conversations? Do you feel that way?
Sayaka: But there is a part which they will communicate after that. I feel that this is a very charming aspect of their relationship
Shuu: There are many explanations to their relationship. In the 90s anime, Usagi-chan asked “Are you two lovers?” and Haruka answered “we are beyond that”. During our performance last year, Sayaka and I discussed about the relationship between Haruka and Michiru, and we both agreed that we will only play them in a relationship beyond lovers.
“The fan reaction to this show has been like massive, I mean, people are obsessed with it. I told you, like my entire office every Wednesday is like “Oh, it’s The Handmaid’s Tale day!” I mean, have you
started to noticed, you know, because you were on a show that had a very, very, very, rabid fan base and still does to this day in a lot of ways. Have you noticed like a wavering in the amount of people coming up to you now and being like “Serena Joy is the worst. I love you”? Just like that – it’s more Handmaid’s Tale now that people are getting into it?” [▶]
