    Very nice Chibi-chan. =D You know what? Your comics have inspired me to start drawing again…

    • Chibi Jennifer June 22, 2009 at 9:55 pm #

      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?

    • Chibi Jennifer June 22, 2009 at 9:56 pm #

      hmm..actually you have a point. If she grew at a constant speed, she might actually be dead in 4 weeks. ^^;

    I LOVE THIS! =^_^=

    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!

    • Chibi Jennifer June 22, 2009 at 10:18 am #

      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..

    • Chibi Jennifer June 22, 2009 at 10:31 am #

      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!

  8. curdey June 20, 2009 at 10:58 am #

    Very clever – I love your comics!!!

  9. Mamo-chan June 20, 2009 at 10:56 am #

    That’s so funny! lol
    I always wondered why she had to be younger in Stars than in S…

  10. Travis June 20, 2009 at 10:31 am #

    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.

    • Chibi Jennifer June 20, 2009 at 10:59 am #

      Thanks for much for your awesome suggestion ^_^

      And yesh, I tried to make that scene similar :D

    • Sailor Sun June 21, 2009 at 5:18 am #

      Yeah with the cherry blossoms ^^

  11. jade June 20, 2009 at 5:40 am #

    ha ha,nice

    p.s,this happns on the show,exept the last 2 panels

    • Chibi Jennifer June 20, 2009 at 7:37 am #

      ^_^ Thanks

      Actually, the third frame happens too.. Sort of. XD

  12. newageretrohippie June 19, 2009 at 10:06 pm #

    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.

  13. AnimatedEvey47 June 19, 2009 at 10:05 pm #

    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?

    • Chibi Jennifer June 20, 2009 at 7:40 am #

      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 ^^;

  14. Brad June 19, 2009 at 9:40 pm #

    GAH! You’re getting too popular! haha! Look at all these comments!

    Love this one! Great work as usual! Love your sense of humour!

    • Chibi Jennifer June 19, 2009 at 10:03 pm #

      Thank you Brad ^__^
      Glad it’s meeting your expectations.

  15. Jacky June 19, 2009 at 6:27 pm #

    Lol nice one!

  16. angelinamoon June 19, 2009 at 1:34 pm #

    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.
    Love it!

    • Chibi Jennifer June 19, 2009 at 1:36 pm #

      Thank you so much for your kind compliments!
      I’m very happy you loved them all so far! :D

  17. Captain Ersatz June 19, 2009 at 9:29 am #

    Hotaru looks like Ayuma Kasuga!

    • Chibi Jennifer June 19, 2009 at 9:33 am #

      Who’s Ayuma Kasuga…?
      *searches google*

      Oh. XD

      ahhaha..really? I don’t think they look that alike..^^;

      • Miss Breeziness June 19, 2009 at 10:43 am #

        I love Azumanga Daioh. And come to think of it…Hotaru does kinda look like Osaka! :)

        • Fighter4Luv February 1, 2010 at 8:48 pm #

          I was just about to say the same thing. She shares that same “lights are on, but no one’s home” quality :P

  18. DREWdesu June 19, 2009 at 9:10 am #

    Lol it sounds like they are planting Hotaru XD

    • Chibi Jennifer June 19, 2009 at 9:18 am #

      lol, I re-read it, and you’re right! It does sound like she’s a plant ^^;;

  19. black_sonnet June 19, 2009 at 9:10 am #

    XD it is rather odd that happens but CUTE! :D

    • Chibi Jennifer June 19, 2009 at 9:17 am #

      Wonder if anyone can think of a logical explanation?

  20. Purenightshade June 19, 2009 at 8:42 am #

    Ha! Oh Saturn. She’s so short!

  21. Kressa June 19, 2009 at 8:42 am #

    LOL that’s funny. she’s actually one of my favorites :)

    • Chibi Jennifer June 19, 2009 at 9:15 am #

      ^____^ Seems to be quite a few Saturn fans here :D
      Glad you enjoyed it!

  22. Sailor Gold Rabbit June 19, 2009 at 7:46 am #

    Yay! Hortaru and Setsuna! Hooray!

    Once again, MoonSticks had made me laugh! Yay! :D

  23. Miss Breeziness June 19, 2009 at 7:18 am #

    For a second there, I was expecting a Hotaru either 50 feet tall or a middle-aged lady. :D

    • Chibi Jennifer June 19, 2009 at 7:29 am #

      ahahha yeah…except even if she did grow, she can only grow so much..being in a chibi comic XD

      • Miss Breeziness June 19, 2009 at 7:36 am #

        Good point. :)

  24. KTVB June 19, 2009 at 7:15 am #

    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!

    • Chibi Jennifer June 19, 2009 at 7:28 am #

      XD We were all fooled… and disappointed…
      Seriously though..how come she stopped?

      Thanks ^_^!!

      • TimeSage October 23, 2009 at 4:17 pm #

        Shouldn’t we be asking YOU that?

  25. sourpunkgrrl June 19, 2009 at 7:05 am #
