Hi guys I actually have a question this time about the Dub novels that were released. You know the ones that actually covered some of the episodes not found in the original Dub of the series like the Fortune Teller episode. They even for instance named Yuuji Kimura, Tim House I think the boy that tripped Ms. Haruna. I was going to ask one thing though some of Usagi/Serena's friends were actually named in the series they were called June Chin, Kim Matthews, Lisa Brownridge, Rica Kelton, and Tina Marin. My question is do any of them correspond with any of Usagi's friend's from the anime. I mean of course we know Naru aka Molly but in the 90s two of Usagi's friends did have names Yumiko namely the girl with long black hair and blue eyes and Kuri the girl with short Black hair and brown eyes. I don't know what they were called in the dub though. Also Usagi in the 90s anime had two friends that were never named one was a fat girl with red hair and another was a thin girl with brown hair in a bobbed hairstyle. I was wondering if any of these girls correspond to those girls shown?

I wouldn’t take the novels too seriously as they had Serena being an avid Dawson Creek’s watcher and lover of late 90’s boy bands and girl pop. The novels are their own canon.


I thought Kuri's name was "Kari" in the dub, but I don't know where I read that.
Like Memento said tall thin friend being named Brandy was the only “official one”


Hell even Darien Shields isn’t official but in lieu of the tv series dub ever giving him a proper last name what else is there to go off of?

The thin brunette friend was named Brandy; none of the others had names in the dub.

It is interesting though for Usagi's Fat Friend it lists her dub name as being Loraine on wikimoon. Was she ever referred to by that name in the 90s dub? It also says that Yumiko's dub name was either Yumi or Brandy but the last one can't be right as Brandy referred to the thin brunette girl with the bob cut.

Likewise it says that Kuri's name is Kari in the 90s dub but I wonder if that was ever said?

She was not I wouldn’t trust any wikia

No, again as was said before the only friend in the DiC dub to get a name was tall thin girl that went to gym shapely. Fat friend, Kuri, and Yumiko were never given names in the Optimum dub. Not once.
