  1. In the anime, the Inner Senshi had transformation pens that were almost identical (except in sign and colour), but in the manga Sailor Venus had a different pen from when she was Sailor V.
  2. The transformation pens are short and round in the anime, while in the manga they are longer and more cylinder-shaped.
  3. Despite that the transformation devices are pens, the Inner Senshi never wrote with them in the anime.

  1. This is the last transformation sequence Minako Aino used to turn into her senshi form.
  2. In Sailor Venus’ previous transformation sequences, her hair moved away to reveal her face; however, in this transformation sequence she physically brushed her hair away from her face.
  3. After Sailor Venus’ “Super” upgrade, her back bow was enlarged and lengthened, the orange button on her front bow changed from a circle to a heart, the bottom of her shoulder pads were transparent, a golden star was attached to her choker, her earrings were the same shape but darker in color, and her collar had one white stripe.
  4. The wreath of roses that appears on Sailor Venus’ final pose background symbolizes the Greek goddess, Aphrodite (or Venus in Roman mythology). The rose is a plant that is sacred to Aphrodite and people would often give offerings of roses to her in Ancient Greece. It is said that the red rose is connected to the story of Aphrodite and Adonis. One version of the story states that Adonis was fatally wounded by a wild boar while hunting. As Aphrodite was by his side, the mixture of her tears and his blood created the blood-red rose. Another story states that Adonis was slightly wounded and Aphrodite, while running to him, scratched her foot on a rose bush. The blood that flowed from her foot stained the white flowers on the bush, creating the red rose. The golden appearance of the wreath could also be a reference to a magical golden girdle (cestus) that Aphrodite wore, making her irresistible to men.

  • Parts of this sequence are an homage to Minako’s transformations in the first anime.
