This I never heard of, interesting bit of relatively unknown trivia. Tell me, were Toei/Bandai aware of this random birthday and did they approve? As in, were these dolls licensed out to one of their distributors? If so, could this technically be counted as canon?
The dolls were made by Bandai's North American branch. I'd say it counts as canon unless and until Naoko disputes it (which seems unlikely)

That reminds me, Naru's birthday (January 1st) is from an official source too, right? One of the anime supplement books I think?

Hmm, what are some more good rarepairs.... ChibiUsa/Perle is cute and uncommon, but since it's suggested right in the SuperS movie, I don't think it counts even though nobody talks about Perle much. Maybe uh...

Galaxia / Sailor Buttress from the first Stars musicals?

I still can’t get over that there’s a literal Senshi named Sailor “Buttress” :lol: is that actually the official romanization of her name or is it meant to be pronounced something like “Bataress?”

Capricorn actually fits Naru well methinks, though I could also see Taurus, Cancer or Virgo for her too.

Her name is pronounced as "Batoresu" in Japanese. :)
Sounds like then the direct translation of her name is “Battleless” rather than “Buttress.” Which is still a weird af name for a Senshi to have but at least it’s one you can actually take seriously lol.

I think this is a typo- you mean outside of Setsuna/Mamoru, and outside of Setsuna/Haruka/Michiru, right? Not Mamoru/Haruka/Michiru? XD
Yep, definitely a typo, I meant the former rather than the latter - though the latter would be quite the rarepair crackship indeed lol.

Speaking of, this actually reminds me of the time I stumbled upon a Rubeus/Haruka fanart, now talk about the ultimate of ultimate crackships! lol

(Shipping any confirmed lesbians or gay men with cis men or cis women respectively is a no-no for me, as it reeks too much of conversionary therapy, I know technically Haruka has never been explicitly stated to be a lesbian and she could just as well be bi or pan, but I think she’s extremely heavily coded in a way that’s meant to be read as full monosexual, Kinsey level 6 lesbian - especially in the 90’s anime where Michiru outright says that Haruka “doesn’t get along with men.”)

Yuichiro and Makoto because they would make a very amazing couple. I know Yuichiro loves Rei, but I think that he would also like Makoto as well since Makoto would be a lot more sympathetic towards Yuichiro and that she would love to be with him too.

I think jumbling the Senshi's parents (except for the deceased ones, of course) into a complicated web of extramarital affairs would be fun. :mischief:

i feel like a Haruna/ Prof. Tomoe subplot would have been fun in the 90’s anime
Y’know I never thought about this before but this could actually be a pretty amusing pairing. It has potential to work too since they’re right around the same age and Haruna is confirmed single ready to mingle. I’m sure she’d be a better stepmother to Hotaru than Kaori in any case. XD

I agree! Think of the possibilities.

I ship that! I still think Haruna was a bit younger probably mid to late 20s, but still they would make a very nice couple. And Hotaru and Hanura would have such a cute relationship. One thing I really love about the 90s was the rare cases they showed the wonderful loving mother-daughter relationship between Ikuko and Usagi. The show needed more of that.
