GIMP experiment part 2 XD I’m still getting back into the swing of it but I love how this one turned out, especially the background. This time it’s my favourite character, Sailor Pluto! Of course I used Yuuko-Pluto since she is my favourite XD
Haruka/Uranus(a funny thing that we always start with Uranus even though Saturn would be the first Outer Senshi whe you look at the order of planets haha xD)Takagi Nao. This is no surprise, I guess? Nao was so Uranus it’s even scary. Maybe the real Haruka was a bit more serious but it’s Nao portrayal of Haruka that everyone loves so much and this is because it has so much warmth in it! She Plays the role with passion and omg she sings so good! And she dances so good! She is always 100 %! 100% Uranus and no one can beat Nao x Yuhka (No, Shuu and Sayaka don’t beat them in ANY way-.-).
Michiru/Neptune: Tahara Hiroko. Ha -> now you are surprised, right? For sure, no one portrays the relationship of Haru/Michi as good as Nao and Yuhka but still Yuhka is a bit too sensitive and too less badass for me (with Tomoko it was just the other way roud). If you put Yuhka and Tomoko in a pot -> Hiroko would come out. She was both: she was a confident (at times bitchy) lady as well as a sensitive lover. I love the way she beat Yaten in Sailor Stars with that badass comment and yeah she is just a real lady to moi :D Honorable mentions: Asami Yuhka, Inami Tomoko
Hotaru/Saturn: Mita Mao. It is a very hard decision but in the end Mao wins haha. She was able to play a childlike and sweet Hotaru, like she was in Season 5 and also the serious Girl who can destroy the world. It is kind of impressing how she can change the way of acting in seconds. She also has a nice voice and her To a brand New World is stunning… and scary and beautiful. I also loved her interaction with Ayano (Chibiusa). I really could believe that they were best friends :3 Honorable Mentions: Tomioka Mario, Iizuka Yui, Takeda Keiko
Setsuna/Pluto: W.i.t.h.o.u.t a.n.y. d.o.u.b.t. Hosaka Yuuko! I have to mention that Pluto is my all favourite Senshi and that it is hard to make me happy but Yuuko was perfect! She was Pluto just like Miyuki and Nao were Moon and Venus x3 Her singing, her acting, her dancing, her voice, herself in the fankansha Events and backstage was just so much Setsuna.. Yuuko was a wonderful cast. Although I don’t really like the Black Lady Musicals I love her interaction with Noel… it’s so cute. Or when ChibiChibi steals her umbrella or garnet rod in Starlights Ryuusei and Kakyuu Ouhi Kourin. She always reacts like Setsuna would have.. great. Honorable mention: Nakazawa Seiko

I found this drawing among some of my older ones when I was looking back at them earlier in the week. I showed my bestie and she convinced me to put it on here! Anyway here is my drawing of Yuuko Hosaka as Sailor Pluto. She is my favourite Pluto so lots of effort went into this XD
