Narrator: It is just a matter of time before Baby Hotaru is re-awoken as Sailor Saturn..
Baby Hotaru: ?
Narrator: ..the Soldier of Ruin and Rebirth.
Narrator: 1 day later…
Haruka: WOW! What happened? Hotaru grew so quickly!
Michiru: She was still a baby yesterday!
Narrator: 2 days later…
Setsuna: Her rapid growth is a sign the time is coming..
Haruka: The feared soldier will once again enter this world.
Narrator: 4 weeks later.
Haruka: Hey! She Still looks the same!
Setsuna: I think that’s it.
looking at hotaru on panel 1 makes me to hug her to death!!! too cute!!!!!!!! :-D
Hotaru is so cute! Panel 1, it looks like she’s a baby pikachu from pokemon! too cute to resist!
Thank you fireflames ^_^
Wish I were Hotaru to be a kid forever.
I agrie with Eris!
U know, if my 5 yr old brother EVER grows up that fast, Im takin him 2 the hospital which is what the Outers shoulda done!
good point. thing that also leaves me confused: in SuperS manga she grows to preteen age then in Stars she’s back to being less than 8 y/o.
At the start of the first season, Usagi & co are 13 and Mamoru is 17, and by the time Sailor Moon R rolls over, Chibiusa comes from the future as a 6 year old, Usagi is 14 and Mamoru is 18. In the third series, Usagi turns 15, and Mamoru turns 19. Chibiusa returns as a 7 years old, Setsuna is 18, Haruka and Michiru are 16, and Hotaru is 13. At the end of the third series, Hotaru is rebirthed as a baby. At the beginning of the fourth series, Hotaru is 1 (cronologically 14), Usagi is 16, Mamoru is 20, Setsuna is 19, Haruka and Michiru are 17, and Chibiusa returns as a 8 years old. When Hotaru s’ powers “wake-up”, she turns into a 8 year old and stays that way. At the end of the fifth series, Usagi is 17, Mamoru is 21, Setsuna is 20, Haruka and Michiru are 18, and Hotaru is 9 (actually 15). A few months later, Usagi gets pregnant, and the New Crystal Millennium starts. Everyone gets encased in crystal and the Sailor Senshi become immortal. By then, it’s been 1000 years, but Usagi is 22, Mamoru is 26, Setsuna is 25, Haruka and Michiru are 23, Hotaru is 14 (actually 1020), and Chibiusa is 5, and their ages have been stopped, but if Usagi gets killed in battle, over-uses the Silver Crystal, or abdicates, then Chibiusa would be next in place and age up into whatever age she would be if their ages were not locked and the crystal-encasing did not happen.
Lady Antebellum “American Honey”
……She grew good, she grew up slow….
Not Hotaru under any circumstances.
I don’t get it but ok. By the way, what the heck is up w/ Setsuna’s hand? Did she break her fingers or something???
Thank you ^^
I just noticed sailor pluo’s hand on the last panel
ahahah yeh weirdness :D
wats up wit Pluto’s hand???
Rooster fingers :D
lol oh my god, brilliant! Again, I thought the exact same thing!
haha yay ^_^
Thank youuu! ^^
The look on Hotaru’s face is so cute! And oblivious! XD
I beleive the reason why she did not grow up to her full age was because Galaxia needed her star seed to mature. She needed to age a certain amount for the seed to mature which explains the fast aging and the fast ending of it.Galaxia mentioned that slightly when Saturn/Hotaru was ready to destory her.
I wish we got a transformation and attack from her, just one.
Love this comic!!!
Yep, thought that too XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
lol i luv how you bring out the holes in the manga story
Thanks! ^_^ Though I always thought the holes were based on the anime XD
XD I was expecting Hotaru to be too big in the last panel or something. Awesome job!
lol.. and they would have the same response..
*whisper* Did something go wrong? XD
In this comic, baby Hotaru looks so cute on the strip-1!
Ahaha, love it! <3
Glad you think so :3~
Yah, <3 Hotaru-chan. I actually like her as her slightly younger self in Stars- so adorable. I don't know why she didn't grow up to her old age though, in the manga it looks like she does but in a lot of shots than she still looks young.
I guess it gives Chibiusa a friend closer her age ^^;
baby hotaru looks cuter here than in the anime!!! :D
aww really? X3
I think Hotaru was cooler when she was a teenager. I didn’t really like her that much in Stars… :(
Yea, I think she should’ve grown older too!
lol False alarm! Too cute! ^_^
:D Thanks RainStar!
Very nice Chibi-chan. =D You know what? Your comics have inspired me to start drawing again…
Thank you DrummerChick! And it’s great I was able to inspire you! I’d love to see some of your drawings =D
Hehe were you expecting her to turn into a granny or something XD?
hmm..actually you have a point. If she grew at a constant speed, she might actually be dead in 4 weeks. ^^;
I LOVE THIS! =^_^=
Glad to hear it! ^_^
LOL that’s great! I wondered the same exact thing, why didn’t she end up growing at least up to how old she was in S. It would’ve been cool if she aged up to everybody else, but it shows that size doesn’t always matter, she kicked a lot of butt anyways! She was about to put Nehelenia in check before Chibiusa stopped her. My favorite part is the last shot where Hotaru is still wearing the same smile she had before, as if she didn’t move an inch since last time. Setsuna’s comment is hilarious as well:)
Thank you Peter! ^_^ Haruka wasn’t exaggerating when she said “she looks the same” XD ahahaha..
Thanks again! As usually, very well done! Sorry this is so late!
I think in the manga she was growing so quickly because of the Dead Moon Circus, and she stopped when they were defeated. I have no idea in the anime though. Good observation!
oh, ahha that makes some sense! I haven’t really read much if the manga ;)
I don’t have any word to express how funny this comic is…
I LOVE IT <3 I guess this is the best comics you have ever done (the rest are awesome but this is the funniest LOL)
Honestly, I have never thought about not Hotaru's growing up in this way. You are really clever and observant ^^
Really a great work..
Thank you so much Sailor Sun :) I’ll continue to do my best to get some more funny ones out.
Thanks for following all this time!
Very clever – I love your comics!!!
Thank you curdey :D
That’s so funny! lol
I always wondered why she had to be younger in Stars than in S…
hehehe, good to know I’m not the only one!
OMG Jen, that is your funniest one to date! I am glad I could be some assistance, but you really hit it out of the park.
I also love the lighting effect in the first panel, reminds me so much of the scene from the first episode of Stars with baby Hotaru.
Thanks for much for your awesome suggestion ^_^
And yesh, I tried to make that scene similar :D
Yeah with the cherry blossoms ^^
:D It’s a pretty scene!
p.s,this happns on the show,exept the last 2 panels
Actually, the third frame happens too.. Sort of. XD
For all we know she could be a 20 something midget who has the face of a ten year old. This show has done weirder things.
That’s a creepy thought @___@
lol I never understand that either. How is it that she grows fast in two days but when she looks about 8/9 she just stays that way. Why couldn’t they make her grow up to be 14/15?
I wish they’d make her grow back to the age when Sailor Saturn first appeared in Super season. I mean, even if they were reborn, it’s not like we’d see say a ..8/9 year old Sailor Jupiter for example ^^;
GAH! You’re getting too popular! haha! Look at all these comments!
Love this one! Great work as usual! Love your sense of humour!
Thank you Brad ^__^
Glad it’s meeting your expectations.
Lol nice one!
I have to tell you, I am in love with MoonSticks! Every single comic is hilarious and adorable! I also love how you even have the outfits accurate — Like in comic #1, that’s what they were wearing that episode! So awesome and detail oriented.
Thank you so much for your kind compliments!
I’m very happy you loved them all so far! :D
Hotaru looks like Ayuma Kasuga!
Who’s Ayuma Kasuga…?
ahhaha..really? I don’t think they look that alike..^^;
I love Azumanga Daioh. And come to think of it…Hotaru does kinda look like Osaka! :)
I was just about to say the same thing. She shares that same “lights are on, but no one’s home” quality :P
Lol it sounds like they are planting Hotaru XD
lol, I re-read it, and you’re right! It does sound like she’s a plant ^^;;
XD it is rather odd that happens but CUTE! :D
Wonder if anyone can think of a logical explanation?
Ha! Oh Saturn. She’s so short!
lol, yup XD
Thanks for dropping by!
LOL that’s funny. she’s actually one of my favorites :)
^____^ Seems to be quite a few Saturn fans here :D
Glad you enjoyed it!
Yay! Hortaru and Setsuna! Hooray!
Once again, MoonSticks had made me laugh! Yay! :D
haha that’s great Sailor Gold Rabbit ^___^
For a second there, I was expecting a Hotaru either 50 feet tall or a middle-aged lady. :D
ahahha yeah…except even if she did grow, she can only grow so much..being in a chibi comic XD
Good point. :)
HAHHAHAH!!! Hilarious!!! I reckon lol I thought she was growing to grow older too lol
Hotaru’s lost expression is priceless!
YAY for a Hotaru comic ^_^ keep it up!
XD We were all fooled… and disappointed…
Seriously though..how come she stopped?
Shouldn’t we be asking YOU that?
Hey, I didn’t create the anime ;)
Awwwwwww I love Hotaru!
