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).

Some more random musings:

  • If Prince Demand had managed to touch the two Silver Crystals together, thus destroying the world, would Sailor Saturn have been awakened?
  • Though they're not technically Sailor Crystals, I wonder what would have happened had Sailor Galaxia gotten her hands on the Black Crystal and the Taioron Crystal. With those extra boosts of power, would she have been able to defeat Sailor Moon?
  • Is Chibiusa's Umino-lookalike classmate Sorano supposed to be Minako's friend Hikaru's brother? Or does he just happen to share the same [last] name?

He may have presented himself as male but he could have been a cross-dressing woman. In the Sailor Moon universe, that's pretty common. :P Since they didn't have a chance to verify his sex, they listed his gender as "unknown" just to be safe.

Came across a comment from a Japanese fan theorizing that since Wiseman had the power to manipulate space-time, he must have absorbed Chronos, and that the Black Moon arc was building up to a showdown between him and Pluto in a parallel to Usagi vs Chibiusa/Black Lady as part of the arc's theme of parent-child conflict, and.......I'm just really disappointed now that that's not how that arc played out.

I've always thought that entire plot point nonsensical, and I like to imagine that if he had touched the Silver Crystals, it would have absolutely no effect, and everyone would have gotten worked up over nothing.
