Hi guys I know I have made a few threads on Sailor Astarte but I have a new idea that came to my mind. With the Dracul Arc musicals the first two were very clearly inspired by two actual Sailor Moon seasons/arcs. The first musical of the Dracul arc was very clearly a sort of a remake of the first Sailor Moon S musical just with a Vampire theme. Complete with Professor Tomoe except instead of being Germatoid he is Undead Berserk in this and the character of Death Lamia in the place of Kaolinite. The Death Nightmares and the Death Mannetjes from the Sailor Moon S musical were simply redesigned for this one. We also have a similar plot of the villains wanting something from Sailor Chibi Moon be it her Pure Heart Crystal, Sailor Crystal etc.

However I felt that the second musical was as inspired by the SuperS/Dream arc in the same way that the first musical was inspired by S/the Mugen arc. For one we had the Amazones Quartet who were now changed to be the Samael Quartet and were Hommunculus created from Chibiusa's Starseed and who become the Sailor Quartet in the musical. In fact this musical is the only musical where the Amazones/Samael/Sailor Quartet appeared at all. They appeared in none of the SuperS/Dream arc musicals either the earlier ones or the more recent ones. However this concerns Sailor Astarte. I am starting to wonder now if Sailor Astarte was kind of this musicals version/nod to Queen Nehellenia. Both were Goddesses/Queens associated with the New Moon. Both of them believed that they were the True Queens/Goddesses of the Moon etc. Granted Astarte was more sympathetic and less villainous then Nehellenia in both the 90s anime and the manga. There were also certain similarities to Sailor Astarte and Sailor Saturn with the Mistress 9 plot in Sailor Moon S due to her being possessed by Dark Cain in this musical. Also I felt that Lilith of Darkness was rather similar in role to Zirconia was she was basically depicted as a servant of the Goddess Astarte devoted to making her the true Queen/Goddess of the Moon and is devoted to her in a similar albeit different way that Zirconia was to Nehellenia. I was wondering what anyone else here thinks of this. It would be cool if someone did a fanfic or a new musical connecting Nehellenia and Astarte in some way.

One thing that intrigued me is that in one of the musicals where Sailor Astarte appeared in she said that her Mother's disappearance broke her inside and we never knew what happened to her mother. Maybe if there was ever a new adaptation of the Dracul arc musicals and story (preferably with a more coherent fleshed out storyline) maybe her Mother was Queen Nehellenia however with a story more akin to say the 90s anime Nehellenia and that Nehellenia had a daughter that she somehow forgot about akin to say Witch Bandora on Zyuranger (Rita Repulsa to Power Rangers fans) maybe her embrace of that Dark Power caused her to forget about her daughter Sailor Astarte and Astarte would be wondering through out time slowly forgetting who she was as well due to the trauma of losing her mother and former Kingdom. Maybe she could be Queen Nehellenia's daughter and heir in the very same way that Sailor Moon aka Princess Serenity is the daughter and heir of Queen Serenity. However that is just my idea.
