A fan of the series since 1995, Koriander runs the popular Moon Sisters fan site and studies the Sailor Moon franchise closely. The new generation of Sailor Guardians in their official, full color forms. Sailor Moon has been delighting fans of tokusatsu and the mahō shōjo genre since its humble beginnings as the spin-off to Run Run's popular manga series Codename Sailor V with a successful manga series, two televised anime series, a multitude of musical plays and live shows, a live-action tokusatsu show and several theatrical movies with fans new and returning still clamoring for more decades past its first run between the pages of a manga anthology magazine. So, wouldn't it make sense for the series to continue with some fresh faces and a new generation, as other series such as Pretty Cure/Glitter Force have been successful in doing? Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask trapped in the body of a schoolgirl who had traveled to the 20th century in order to save her mother's life. Over the course of the '90s anime, Chibiusa (or Rini if you recall the DiC dub) polarized fans as she stumbled through her training as a future, full-time Sailor Guardian, serving as a POV character for younger fans and as either hope or annoyance to adult fans.
This alone would be enough for its own spin-off series, but it gets even better.
But her manga counterpart enjoyed both a physical and mental growth, reaching a teenager's body by the end of the StarS Arc. She also gained her own team, crystal, love interest, and her own power separate from Sailor Moon. Sailors Chibi Moon, Pallas, Vesta, Juno, and Ceres stood in for the original Sailor Guardians when Sailor Galaxia had wreaked havoc throughout the universe and gave the hope that the future was still on its way to a grieving Sailor Moon. This alone would be enough for its own spin-off series, but it gets even better. The StarS Arc ends with Usagi discovering she is pregnant with her timeline's own Chibiusa earlier than her Neo Queen counterpart, and the final manga story, Parallel Sailor Moon, starts with that Chibiusa at 15 and like Sailor Mercury at her age, this Chibiusa is excelling at cram school alongside her eternal best friend Hotaru (who started stunting her growth to keep up with Chibiusa during the Dream Arc, so she is technically 28 in the body of a 15-year-old) and the two are making political plans way ahead of Crystal Tokyo being built. When Chibiusa isn't planning for her diplomatic future, she is taking care of her baby sister Kousagi and their pet rabbits. Wait, There's Another Daughter? Kousagi Tsukino, the (so far) manga-only and full-blood younger sibling of Chibiusa. If you have Sailor Moon Short Stories Volume 2, Sailor Moon Perfect/Eternal Edition Volume 10, or the elusive and Japan-only Sailor Moon Materials Collection art book, then you were likely surprised to find Usagi and Mamoru's second-born daughter, Kousagi Tsukino.
She's the always hungry 3rd grader who has an allergy to cats and is constantly being bullied by her frienemies Ami, Rei, Mako, and Mina, girls named after their Inner Sailor Guardian mothers whose job is to protect and fight alongside Kousagi, despite the fact that none of them really want to. Considering how very much like her mother Kousagi is, it wouldn't be too much of a stretch to think that someone out there would want to see a series surrounding these junior Sailor Guardians and the world they've been growing up in. The girls all make it clear that they are aware of their mothers as superheroes. In this timeline, Usagi has not yet built Crystal Tokyo nor become Neo Queen Serenity, but since Kousagi is acknowledged by her (as of this writing) unnamed kitten companion as a princess, it seems as though it's only a matter of time before a new palace emerges as we initially saw in the Black Moon Arc and in Sailor Moon R. A potential series could easily write episodes for each of the girls having to save the world alongside their mothers, utilize their mothers' powers and eventually as 30th-century Chibiusa once did, cultivate their own elemental powers. Kousagi is told by Mamoru that the day will come when she will save the planet.
Her friends are all told that it is their duty to stand with her when that day arrives, but of course, these five handle this knowledge about as well as a group of third graders will. Episodes on the girls' daily lives could also be a draw. We learn that Ami for example did get to achieve her dream in becoming a doctor, but she and her husband are poor and overworked with the originally bubbly Sailor Mercury now a bitter 30-something. Rei has taken over her grandfather's shrine and purifies places as a proper priestess. Makoto is a struggling entrepreneur with her own florist and bakery store and Minako is married to an assistant director for a sitcom while Usagi is a stay-at-home mom and Mamoru seems to have his own work. It should be a cakewalk to write stories around the daily lives of the girls and have them tie into new enemies or even a monster of the week as we saw with the '90s anime. In a similar vein to Cardcaptor Sakura, Powerpuff Girls, and other kid mahō shōjo stories, Parallel Sailor Moon mixes laughs with a hint of serious content, giving a world of potential to a would-be full series, and it's a shame that since its debut in 1999, there hasn't been more of an effort from series creator Naoko Takeuchi in expanding upon this story, nor has Toei Animation offered publicly to animate the story. But Parallel Sailor Moon does have its fan base, and like with everything else involving Sailor Moon, it is growing rapidly as more people are buying the manga. Sound off! Are you a manga reader?
It left him heartbroken and caused his skin to turn blue.
This list describes characters from the anime and manga series Doraemon. Also listed are their original NTV voice actors (1973), followed by their TV Asahi voice actors (1979-2005; 2005-present). Part of the 22nd century characters are listed in The Doraemons. Each main character represents a primary school student archetype. Nobita appears in every episode of the anime, while Doraemon appears in most episodes, sometimes being substituted (for medical checkup or on leave) by his sister, Dorami. Note: In some translations of Doraemon, the names of these characters are different from the original names. 2.9 Nobisuke Nobi Jr. Albert in the Cinar dub of the series, is the title character and co-protagonist of the series. He is a cat-like robot from the future. He was yellow-skinned and had ears originally. However, his ears were accidentally eaten by a robot mouse. It left him heartbroken and caused his skin to turn blue. People often mistake him for a raccoon dog. He is sent back in time by Sewashi (Nobita's Great-great-grandson) to aid Nobita. Doraemon possesses a 4-dimensional pocket from which he can acquire various kinds of futuristic tools, gadgets, and playthings from a future department store.
He has also been shown to date with normal female cat.
He also has the tendency to panic during emergencies, characterized by him frantically trying to pull out a very much-needed tool from his pocket, only to produce a huge assortment of household items and unwanted gadgets. Still, Doraemon is very friendly and intelligent, not to mention long-suffering because of Nobita's antics. Since Sewashi sent Doraemon to the past, Doraemon has been living as the unofficial fourth member of Nobita's family and acts like a second son to Nobita's parents, since despite being a robot, he requires basic needs for a person, such as eating, and also sleeps in the closet of Nobita's bedroom. He also fears mice greatly (due to a robot mouse having eaten his ears), even go crazy about it and pull out devastating gadgets, and most of the times, Nobita saves Doraemon in such situations. Although he has no fingers in most media, he can hold things because of the suction cups in his hands. His favorite food is Dorayaki. He has also been shown to date with normal female cat. He is the elder brother of Dorami.
Nobita Nobi (野比, Nobi Nobita, English dub: Sidney in the Cinar dub, Specky in the Speedy dub, and Noby Nobi in the Bang Zoom! dub) is the co-protagonist of the series. He wears glasses, a red or yellow polo shirt with a white collar, and blue or black shorts and white socks and light blue shoes. Although he's not good at sports, he's good at shooting. He is usually accompanied by Doraemon, who functions as his caretaker. Although he's not good at sports, he's good at shooting and has been reflected in the movies many time. He's also good at string figure which sometime considered a girls' game. Son of Tamako and Nobisuke Nobi. Future father of Nobisuke (his son). Future husband or boyfriend of Shizuka and great-great-grandfather of Sewashi. Taurus), nicknamed Shizuka-chan (しずかちゃん) is a smart, kind and pretty girl. She is often represented by the color pink, and is seen wearing a pink shirt and skirt.
The word 'Shizuka (しずか)' means 'Quiet'. She is Nobita's best friend. She does not shun Nobita due to his failing grades, lazy disposition or constant failures. In fact, she often tries to encourage him to do better, though she usually fails to convince him. Shizuka likes to take a bath several times a day; however, a running gag in the series is that she is sometimes interrupted by a sudden appearance of Nobita (sometimes Doraemon, Gian, or Suneo) usually due to misuse of Doraemon's gadgets like the Anywhere Door (Doko Demo Doa in Japanese). Shizuka's skirt is also frequently seen getting flipped, either by Nobita misusing Doraemon's gadgets, or by the wind. Scenes in which her underwear is seen, or she is seen bathing, have been removed from the dubbed versions, especially in India, Europe, the United States and the United Kingdom. Her true passions are sweet potatoes, which she would rather keep to herself out of the knowledge of others, and the violin, in which her playing is just as horrendous as Gian's singing. She is also known for taking piano lessons unwillingly due to her mother's wishes (as she loves violin more), which is sometimes a reason for declining to hang out with friends (but she plays piano better than violin). Shizuka is an animal lover and keeps two pets at home: a dog, who is saved from succumbing to illness by Nobita and Doraemon in one story; and a canary which runs away on multiple occasions and causing Shizuka and Nobita to run around the city chasing her down.
