☽ SAILOR MOON AESTHETICS ☾ - THE SAILOR QUARTET (セーラーカルテット)

“We are Sailor Senshi…under the protection of the four
Solar Asteroids. Sailor Ceres. Sailor Pallas. Sailor Juno. Sailor Vesta. Sailor Chibi-Moon…We will be waiting for the day you wil stand alone as a…proud senshi.”

Another two page update. The masks for the Quartet are based on their attributes. Para and Seru I feel like are pretty easy. Jun and Besu…not so much. I was planning to give Jun a mask with peacock feathers (peacocks are sacred to the Roman goddess Juno) but my first couple of designs just ended up being too big or too ridiculous looking so I just made a miniature peacock feather design in the center of her mask. I decided to give Besu’s mask a bird motif as a nod to the fact that she was the master of the Amazon Trio, including Hawk’s Eye.

OTHER VERSIONS

  • Cloverway’s English dub (titled “The Sweetest Dream”):

    It was shown that Zirconia was a reflection of Queen Nehelenia, or a physical manifestation of her fear of aging. Yet some fans believe this theory conflicts with the English story’s decision to make Zirconia male.
