Shuu Shiotsuki as Sailor Uranus
Sayaka Fujioka as Sailor Neptune
Both of you loved “Sailor Moon” in your childhood, have your views of the series change now that you are older?
Shuu: When I was young, I could only see the superficial stuff when I watched the anime. When I was a kid, I had a complex regarding my tall height, so as a result, I didn’t like Sailor Jupiter and Sailor Uranus (laughs). However, this was caused by my problems as a kid, now I think they are wonderful characters. Regarding the main character (Tsukino) Usagi-chan, initially I thought that she is a stupid child, but when I read it again, I think that she is a child who is bright and has strong faith. I felt the difference between my original impression and my reformed views of her.
Sayaka: Me too, when I was young, I thought that the manga is about a bunch of cute and strong girls fighting and it was very cool! I feel deeply about the story revolving around the theme of “love” like between Usagi-chan and Tuxedo Kamen, with Mamo-chan (Chiba Mamoru), the love in a family and friendship… I am saying “You will feel differently now viewing it as an adult, go see it again!” to encourage the friends around me. (laughs)
Tell me about the charm of your character.
Shuu: I am playing Sailor Uranus. Tenoh Haruka has a “neither male nor female” characteristic and different people have different interpretations of the character. Although she looks suave and strong, but in reality she can be selfish and sarcastic as well. She is cool but sometimes she can be playful and that is an attractive part of her.
Sayaka: Sailor Neptune, Kaioh Michiru is a person who is very strong on the inside, I believe this is her charm. In her heart, she knows very well what she likes and what she doesn’t.
Shuu: Michiru has a lot of pride.
Sayaka: Yes (laughs) however including that, I think she is a very interesting person. Even though she has high expectations of herself, but she can be fun too.
