Hi guys I have a question about probably the most mysterious Senshi in the franchise that to this day fascinates me to no end namely Sailor Astarte. This question is mainly about her civilian name Sheba Shingetsu Astarte. Obviously Sheba is a reference to the Biblical Queen of Sheba Makeda/Bilqis and Astarte is a reference well to Astarte the Goddess that Sheba/Sailor Astarte is named after. My question is around the etymology around the name Shingetsu. I know it basically means New Moon my question is New Moon in what context? Does it mean New Moon in a brand New IE recently made and discovered IE not old or does it mean New Moon as in the Dark Moon in the Moon Phases. If the later this would be interesting as if she is the New Moon or Dark Moon soldier this would make her sound similar to Queen Nehellenia to me and it is well know that the Dracul arc musicals are like a weird hodge podge retelling of Sailor Moon S/The Mugen arc and Sailor Moon SuperS/The Dream arc.
