Prologue for Eternal Sailor Moon / Tsukino Usagi

Translated by Kurozuki (manga@kurozuki.com).


Hey now! You weeping, heart-broken girl there. You're being shy and timid, little girl. Being troubled by life, living in worry... Sai Baba-sama may allow it, but I won't!

I am the sailor-suited pretty soldier of love and justice, Sailor Moon, and in the name of the moon, I'll punish you!

By far the most beautiful of the ten members of the sailor team, and famous around the world! Focus of the longing of boys throughout the galaxy! Unrivaled in the world, I am Sailor Moon!

And then my other form, the eternal beautiful girl of the Moon Kingdom, the Silver Millennium! Princess Selenity is I, Tsukino Usagi-sama! Ahahahaha!

What? What's wrong, everyone? Don't give me the silent treatment!

Did I say something wrong? I don't think I did. Oh! You want to know why I'm so cheerful and loud, right? It's because yesterday I pigged out on cream honey bean paste balls (the cream was just vanilla). I love them!

Oh, hold on, that's not it. The source of my cheer is that I have the nine sailor soldier allies I rely on, and the future husband to whom I've vowed my eternal love, my wonderful, kind sweetheart. Right, Mamo-chan?

(Mamo-chan, that's what I call him. And Mamo-chan calls me Usako! Mamo-chan... Usako... Haha!)

Oh! That suspicious look! Are you saying I'm not reliable? You want somebody else?

Well, I can't score as well on tests as Ami-chan, I don't have inspiration like Rei-chan, I'm not as good at cooking as Mako-chan, I can't say puns like Minako-chan, but...

I may not look it, but I'm a perseverer! Leave things to me!

If I'm not cheerful, there's no way I can make the ones I love cheerful, right?

And if I don't eat lots of delicious food and pump up my muscles, I can't protect the peace of Earth, right?

Oh, it's almost 7 o'clock on Saturday! Dinner time!

All right!!

With mom's food, and the TV on, my cheerfulness goes up a hundred times! The peace of school, and the peace of my family, and the peace of my sweetheart, and the peace of the universe, I will protect them all together!

Time to eat!

Yes! Energy level at two hundred percent! Cheer bursting at ten billion horsepower! Transform!

Moon Eternal, Make Up! Silver Moon Crystal Power Kiss! I am the sailor-suited pretty soldier of love, courage, and justice, Sailor Moon! In the name of the moon, I'll punish you!
