The creation of Chibiusa, as a character, was also a marketing strategy.

Ah... but didn't Naoko state this herself? She could've based it on both her family and the character archetypes in this series, I don't think that there's anything to disprove... but its nice seeing the parallels between both series.

Is this a common misconception though? We know she named those characters after her family members, but I don't think anyone's suggested their personalities or other characteristics necessarily stem from her family, but maybe I'm just out of the loop when it comes to what fans think...

She may have named the characters after her own family members, but she gave her characters the same personalities (in some case jobs), and even physical traits as the characters from a famous TOEI magical girl show that preceded "Sailor Moon." For example: does Naoko's father work as a magazine editor?

Thanks for the clearing this is up, Clow! I had also heard that Naoko based them on her family so it's good to know the truth. This just makes me want to watch Poitrine even more. :blue:

She possibly has already got one herself, considering her habit/hobby of collecting Sailor Moon bootleg items from around the world. :P

Very interesting! I wonder if the just use her immediate family member names as a stasis to use it for Usagi family?
I really do believe Naoko grew up in an affluent household though.

Wow I didn't know how closely based Usagi's family was to Poitrine's. I guess I would probably add Minako's family all though Minako's mother is meaner then Usagi's but her dad for instance look's just like Kenji all though I don't know if his job was ever stated. Great find Clow.

The similarities are not a coincidence.

  • Yuko's father is the editor of a fashion/feminine magazine --much like Usagi's father.
  • Yuko's brother is a fan of Poitrine/much like Shingo is a fan of Sailor V and Sailor Moon.
  • And... finally... because TOEI wanted Poitrine to appeal to children, Yuko's sister gained the ability to turn herself into Chibi Poitrine, much like Sailor Chibi Moon.
  • Heck, even the houses look identical. Whenever I watch an episode of Poitrine on Youtube, I say to myself: "That's Usagi's house!!!"

^ Ah, my comment in your quote isn't meant to rebut your OP, but is just a side comment in response to LifeGaveMeLemons' post in your quote. :wink:

Excellent article, but it doesn't cover all of the coincidences (e.g. Chibi Poitrine, Yuko's family being identical to Usagi's, etc).

He wrote an excellent piece and I am so happy that he is making people aware about the existence of this unknown toku! Amazing job. :ohmy:

If he reads this message and wishes to expand the article with more information, I would be glad to help him (I have seen the show).
