Sometimes when I'm reading the manga or watching the anime or whatever, I find myself wondering about something that wouldn't quite be on-topic in any of the existing threads, but that also doesn't really merit a thread of its own, so I thought I'd start a thread where we could all discuss the random, minor questions that pop into our heads concerning this franchise.

For instance... Why didn't Usagi get her own Exam Battle Chapter side story? :?

It still would have been interesting to see. Besides, Chibiusa got a ton of focus and was still given four side stories, and Minako had her own spin-off (er, prequel series?) but still got (to share) an Exam Battle Chapter. And it's not like Naoko would ever shy away from giving Usagi more spotlight :lol:

Some argue that Toei is responsible for almost everything that is wrong with Sailor Moon. So most probably they are the ones to be blamed for not letting Naoko to make Usagi's Exam Battle, too.

Another random question: In the Sailor V manga, why is Ace's gender given as unknown?



It seems pretty obvious that he's a guy, and no one ever expresses any uncertainty as to that, so why say his gender is unknown? I get that this was probably done just so all the answers in his profile would be "Unknown," thus making him super-mysterious, but it just comes off as strange and careless since "gender" could have easily been omitted. This just opens up the possibility that Ace is actually a woman (or, I suppose, nonbinary).
