    No wonder Naru doesn’t show up much in later seasons! She was secretly dead! :o

  2. pikachu jigglypuff June 24, 2014 at 5:04 am #

    I always wondered what happened when they were transforming.

  3. pikachu jigglypuff June 24, 2014 at 5:03 am #

    Usagi-chan! I love your dancing but get back on track!
    I am sad that everyone forgot to put me in the episodes.

    you know it’s like every season usagi waits for a new transformation thats longer than the next and i bet in stars the outer senshi are thinking “damn glad we don’t transform in season 5 we jut show up out of nowere and rose petals conveinently introduce us to the sailor animamates”

    • Chibi Jennifer July 11, 2013 at 12:15 pm #

      I wish they included the outer senshi’s henshi in stars too ^^”

  7. Sailor Silver March 2, 2013 at 9:36 am #

    when watching the series i skip the transformations, its a waste of time on school days

    • Chibi Jennifer July 11, 2013 at 12:15 pm #

      aww really? I always love watching the transformations! (Even though it’s the same thing in every episode… XD)

  8. Jess-chan January 19, 2013 at 12:26 pm #

    Poor Naru-chan!

  9. Fireflames August 17, 2012 at 6:15 pm #

    I bet Usagi wants a new power-up but her transformation has to be much longer :P

  10. Sailor Concrete August 9, 2012 at 8:15 am #

    oh my god! i’m not alone!

  11. TheAllanimefan January 10, 2012 at 11:12 am #

  12. Ashleigh3070 August 12, 2011 at 7:52 pm #

    Your comic strips are so awesome and so full of win XD I swear I’ve read them all at least 20 times XD Do you take suggestions? I was wondering do you watch Sailor Moon abridged? It’s on youtube. It’s BRILLIANT. So I was wondering could you make a strip about that? x x x

    • Chibi Jennifer August 12, 2011 at 8:35 pm #

      Thanks for your comment ^_^ I don’t follow SMA but I have seen the odd random episode :)

  13. Usako June 19, 2011 at 2:13 pm #

    Poor Naru…


  14. Ayen March 26, 2011 at 8:07 pm #

    I’m glad not to be the only one who had this thought.

    I could totally make a sandwich in the time it takes her to transform and come to the rescue. Oh yeah that’s a challenge, do you accept Sailor Moon? >:0

  15. usagihimeindonesian November 20, 2010 at 12:49 pm #

    very poor naru…

  16. usagihimeindonesian November 20, 2010 at 12:48 pm #

    omg!!naru is dead!! and usagi is dancing with moon crystal power!!! poor naru…. :D

  17. Elly July 27, 2010 at 3:30 am #

    Actually it was shown in some episodes of the anime, that the pretty, cute, loooong transformations really happen in a fraction of a second and what we see is just a really sloooow motion.

    Still – great strip, I love it :)

    • Chibi Jennifer July 27, 2010 at 11:57 am #

      hehe thanks ^_^
      It makes more sense to be in an ‘instance’, but I had to throw this one in, after everyone watches the henshin sequence every episode which takes up like 30 seconds XD

      • elly July 29, 2010 at 8:42 pm #

        The funniest thing is half of almost every episode is taken by all of the girls shouting each others names. Right now I’m watching the second episode of Sailor Stars and of course when outer senshi appeared the inner just HAD to say the name of every single one of them, instead of just saying “oh, it’s you gals! great timing, great to see you, what are you doing here?” :P

        Also, I think the anime would be even more epic if the attacks changed more often :P

        • Mew March 25, 2012 at 2:14 pm #

          Or everyone saying a name one at a time.

          Ami: Usagi-chan!

          Rei: Usagi-chan!

          Makoto: Usagi-chan!

          Minako: Usagi-chan!
          And, of course, continue on if Haruka, Hotaru, Michiru, Setsuna, Mamoru, Chibi-Usa, Luna, Artemis, Diana, and anybody I may be missing are around.

        • crazy March 9, 2013 at 4:49 pm #

          like if poor pluto would have another atack like the other outer senshi

  18. Alana June 28, 2010 at 6:06 pm #

    I used to think that time would like, speed up, so while I was watching my TV in the normal world, in the Sailor Moon world the transformations took like three seconds.
    This still made me laugh though. Love Naru’s ghost xD

  19. SailorUranusFan June 7, 2010 at 2:49 pm #

    im suprized they dont just pounce on her while shes transforming

    • Chibi Jennifer June 16, 2010 at 8:37 pm #

      Ah, the long debated topic..

      • SailorStar9 October 29, 2018 at 8:15 pm #

        Standard anime rule: You do NOT interrupt transformation sequences, lest you face fanboy rage.

        Someone should mentioning this to Ronin Warriors: poor Ryo!

  20. Neoqueencosmos May 19, 2010 at 3:46 am #

    still dancing!!!

  21. thepigtailedgirl May 15, 2010 at 10:44 am #

    I have a suggestion, you can do a comic of how the english dub always changes the attacks?

    • luna lover August 24, 2010 at 9:10 am #

      yeah like maybe a sailor soldier (english dub) says their attack while in japan,it does not work.the japanese version says “no its (whatever it is in japanese)” (it works) english one says it wrong, japanese says “no (whatever it is in japanese)” another sailor soldier (the same one in both japanese and english) are there, one says this could take a while the other one has the sweatdrop. (sorry that my comment is long).

  22. thepigtailedgirl May 14, 2010 at 8:50 am #

    more realistic than most anime it’s like their transformations could stop time

    • crazy January 18, 2013 at 1:47 pm #

      no that would be plutos powers which SHE CANT USE EVEN THOUGH SHE GOT THEM because there were three things she could never do leave her post at the time door go through the time door and stop time two out of three done guess which

  23. Lizzie May 3, 2010 at 3:46 pm #

    XD I love how Naru-chan’s ghost even has a little bow. Too funneh ^^

  24. ilight_thnite April 25, 2010 at 3:06 am #

    LOL …my sides hurt. It seems like you draw the questions that every Sailor Moon fan has ever wanted to ask.

  25. Hg April 16, 2010 at 9:56 am #

    This is too perfect, lol.

    • FIREflames April 18, 2010 at 1:04 pm #

      naru-chan might be dead lol im not sure hate saying that

  26. MoonMad March 11, 2010 at 6:26 pm #

    Lol. This is one of my favourite comics! poor naru-chan..

    • Chibi Jennifer March 11, 2010 at 6:48 pm #

      heheh, thank you! Glad to hear it MoonMad :D

      • FIREflames April 3, 2010 at 6:50 pm #

        lol and i wonder whats naru-chan been attack by ????

  27. RainStar March 8, 2010 at 2:08 pm #

    lol this is great! You know this is exactly what would of happened.

  28. Maya-chan February 5, 2010 at 10:18 am #

    Its cute and funny especially the last pannel

  29. Sabrblade February 5, 2010 at 10:18 am #

    Reminds me of what the Nostalgia Critic said about the transformations. lol

    • Chibi Jennifer February 5, 2010 at 10:24 am #

      What did he say? xD

      • Bunny the Cabbit February 9, 2010 at 7:55 am #

        Basically that they were wayy too long and the villains would fall asleep from boredom before it was over. But he’s way funnier than I am about it.

  30. Sailorcancer February 5, 2010 at 10:17 am #

    I love all the frames in this one! You did an excellent job on this!

  31. Chase's Eye February 5, 2010 at 10:17 am #

    Surprised you didn’t do this sooner!

    • Chibi Jennifer February 5, 2010 at 10:23 am #


      Most things should be covered eventually 8D heehhee

  32. ChaosInuYasha February 4, 2010 at 9:33 am #

    If anything can ease my mind off of my mom in the hospital its this comic. *watches Setsuna transform*
    *Setsuna runs and hides from me*

    • Chibi Jennifer February 5, 2010 at 10:23 am #

      aww..hope your mum is better soon!

      Take care ChaosInuYasha!

      • ChaosInuYasha February 7, 2010 at 5:47 am #

        Yeah. *Nurse Setsuna comes to me since I am now sick*

  33. Sailor Gold Rabbit February 2, 2010 at 8:34 am #

    D: Poor Naru! XD That’s awesome.

  34. Fighter4Luv February 1, 2010 at 8:55 pm #

    I love your comics. They’re so cute. Poor Naru-chan. She just couldn’t hold on for that 45 seconds longer… *sob*

    • Chibi Jennifer February 1, 2010 at 9:21 pm #

      :D Thanks for dropping by, glad you’re enjoying the comics! (Is this Corey?)

      • Fighter4Luv February 1, 2010 at 11:44 pm #

        Yuppers. I’ve been keeping an eye out on your comics. Your drawings are just so uber cute! I love the circle eyes! :P Simple but still really awesome! Keep up the good work!

  35. Travis January 31, 2010 at 6:34 pm #

    And this is why Naru left Tokyo!

    Haha very funny, I really like this cause it is soo true. Its like a minute long while everyone else is like less then 30 seconds. I think Mercury’s is what, 15?

    • Chibi Jennifer February 1, 2010 at 2:53 pm #

      I think Naru was a bit more unfortunate here…XD

      And yesh, Mercury looks to have the shortest henshin..but then I remembered Chibimoon.lol

  36. Jen January 31, 2010 at 4:21 pm #

    Lol! Adding to the “why don’t the enemy attack them while they transform?” thing, I always wondered why the enemy never attacked them while they’re doing the speeches? I probably would if I was an enemy. They’re off-guard while they’re dancing around and posing!

    • Chibi Jennifer February 1, 2010 at 2:50 pm #

      lol, that’s something I never really thought about except- why do they bother listening to them talk? The youmas etc I mean.. they’ll just die in the episode anyway XD

      • Jen February 2, 2010 at 10:37 am #

        The youma don’t know they’re the red shirt guy, sacrificed by the writers to let the plot move forward. They still think they have a chance even though the one sending them to fight the senshi know different, and want to know the name of the opponent they will destroy. :D

  37. Sailor Sun January 31, 2010 at 9:56 am #

    OMG! that’s so funny.. 8D
    I was tired of studying and my morals are down..
    Thanks for making up my mood ;)

    P.S. It took me a long time for the image to appear (because of the slaw connection -_-;), but it really worths it ^^

  38. lolful January 31, 2010 at 4:39 am #

    XD Naru-chan should go find Luna and get herself a brooch… and a quicker transformation XD

    • Chibi Jennifer February 1, 2010 at 2:48 pm #

      lol, that’s asking a lot… especially the quicker transformation part 8D

  39. Bunny the Cabbit January 31, 2010 at 1:23 am #

    I love Naru-chan, she’s so cute that everyone wants to kidnap her.

  40. Lu January 30, 2010 at 8:58 pm #

    I always found it odd how time kinda stops when the senshi are transforming/executing an attack. I mean really, their sequences aren’t short…

    I must say, thats probably one thing I didn’t like about the series, since it takes away from some of the seriousness of few battles (specifically near the end of the arcs).

    AND ESPECIALLY SAILOR MOON. Her transformations/attacks are a good 20-30 seconds longer than everyone else.

    I do realize that sequences like that are necessary in Magic Girl anime, but….it wouldn’t hurt for it to be a lil more realistic every now and then?

    • Chibi Jennifer February 1, 2010 at 2:45 pm #

      I find it amazing when Sailor Moon does her final attack and the enemy just stands there, waiting for her to finish.
      Surely time doesn’t stop when they attack? XD

      Remember the scene where Sailor Moon uses her attack on Sailor Tin Nyanko? The attack was just as long but for some reason Tin Nyanko couldn’t run away in time (and got half healed)

      • SailorUranusFan May 31, 2010 at 6:04 am #

        an enemy could just take them out when they transforming lol

        • Sailor_Lyoko May 31, 2010 at 9:30 am #

          yeah D:

  41. Joine January 30, 2010 at 2:08 pm #

    Sailor Moon : *still dancing*
    Naru : *has died*
    Me : *is laughing*

  42. XYukiXNagatoX January 30, 2010 at 12:37 pm #

    dont worry naru! just a few more seconds, she hasnt put on her tiara yet.

  43. DrummerChick January 30, 2010 at 12:33 pm #

    Very nice work Chibi Jenn!!

    Love the art for her transformation scene, btw, very well done.

    Poor Naru…

    • Chibi Jennifer January 30, 2010 at 12:39 pm #

      Thank you DrummerChick! ^^

    • Lady Aino January 31, 2010 at 9:03 am #

      Ya! Chibi-Jenn’s art is the cutest!

    Gahahahahahah brilliant :D

  45. KonekoTsukino January 30, 2010 at 8:03 am #

    This made me smile sooo much. Poor Naru-chan, though. Always getting attacked :(

  46. LinneaKou January 30, 2010 at 8:02 am #

    So true XD

    I often wonder what the villains do as the Senshi transform. Maybe they practice their origami?

  47. kendaoh January 30, 2010 at 8:01 am #

    real and true XD

  48. NadiaZeta January 30, 2010 at 8:00 am #

    XD jajajaja poor Naru she wait to much.

    • Chibi Jennifer January 30, 2010 at 8:19 am #

      Yeah XD Nothing new though she’s always waiting for someone to save her ^^

  49. Phi-sen-tea January 30, 2010 at 8:00 am #

    *dead of laughs*

  50. chibi-junjun January 30, 2010 at 7:59 am #

    Sailor moon is so kawaii in the 3 panel!

  51. senshi of love January 30, 2010 at 7:57 am #

    Usagi-chan what took you so long?! While you enjoying your transformation poor Naru-chan lost her soul!!!! :evil:

    lol lol lol lol lol

  52. SerenityMoonGodness January 30, 2010 at 7:56 am #

    Awesome! Funny Love it!

  53. Lady Aino January 30, 2010 at 7:55 am #

    lol The age ol’ transformation joke. Naru-chan, we barely knew ye….

    It’s funny when people cry “Y dont dey jus attack hurrrrr while shez tranfrming!!!!”, not realizing it’s just for show. Magical girl anime is like that. In real time, the transformations are instant. Just check out Michiru during the flashback in episode 106. Same goes for attacks. Remember the Rubeus fight? She spent “forever” doing the Escalation at first, then for the second time, she executed it instantly. Again, all for show.

    • Chibi Jennifer January 30, 2010 at 8:12 am #

      I’m not too sure about the attacks though XD Remember in the S movie, when the senshi were all trying to attack, but they were too fast and attacked them before they could finish executing their attack? Also, in a SuperS episode, Mars was trying to use her flame sniper and end up getting burnt herself? It seems like they really need to say the entire phrase..

      Yet at other times they don’t say anything XD
      Not really consistent huh?

      • Kawaii Silence January 30, 2010 at 11:01 am #

        ^.^ I was wondering if anyone would bring up Michiru’s transformation for that episode. Its cut but still shows Haruka watching her, so its not impossible for people to watch if it is more instant. For attacks, maybe its just sometimes they do the whole sequence (because their girls and want to be flashy?) but if they really wanted to they could shorten it? I don’t know, I never liked watching the same sequence for the attacks all the time. Like something different, even if it does take the same (long) amount of time it would be more interesting to watch different attack sequences.

        • Chibi Jennifer January 30, 2010 at 11:17 am #

          Oh yes, which was pretty cool in the movies, especially in the R movie where all the senshi had the same attacks, but it looked different :D Wish they did more of those.

          Speaking of shortening attacks, Jupiter’s Supreme thunder sometimes it cut short too (without the little antennae thing popping up)

          • TimeSage January 31, 2010 at 8:50 pm #

            PGSM shows Minako Running down the street and in a flash fo light become Sailor V. Anime has Mamoru do much the same except on a motorcycle.

  54. Lucky Chance January 29, 2010 at 11:44 pm #

    Ooh! Nanou! (In French Naru-Chan was called Nanou)
    Nanou’s soul has a ribbon?! Wow!

  55. twelveofdecember January 29, 2010 at 8:34 pm #

    Hahaha I always think about that, why they spend so much time on their transformations/attacks?
    If I were the enemy, I would have take advantage of that… XD

    Great comic! I laugh a lot with it!! ♥

    • Chibi Jennifer January 29, 2010 at 8:35 pm #

      Thank you so much :D Glad you had a good laugh! ^_^

  56. tensai01 January 29, 2010 at 8:33 pm #

    LOL so damn funny, I always wondered why the enemy doesn’t just shoot them or whatever when they are transforming.

  57. Jacky January 29, 2010 at 8:03 pm #

    hahaha!, this one is really cute =) and very well drawn too. 2nd frame looks amazing and love their expressions in the 4th frame. well done!

  58. Martina January 29, 2010 at 5:36 pm #

    Hehehe! First time commenting, but been a reader for a while.

    I love this strip, especially the 3rd panel. You captured that scene perfectly in your style.

    • Chibi Jennifer January 29, 2010 at 7:18 pm #

      yay, another lurker out of the dark :D Nice to meet you ^-^!

      And thank you! Glad you like the style :D

  59. AmaraMichelle January 29, 2010 at 4:15 pm #

    way awesome, loved the third panel Kawaii!

  60. haruka_fanatic January 29, 2010 at 4:09 pm #

    lol She does have a long transformation. It was bound to happen.

  61. dreams-of-absolution January 29, 2010 at 2:43 pm #

    lol this makes me giggle with it’s cuteness > w <

  62. Shenanigans January 29, 2010 at 2:30 pm #

    “Naru-chan? You still alive?”

    Oh my gosh where have I not seen people talk about how long the transformations took. But let’s think about this logically. Why couldn’t the youma just destroy the senshi while they are transforming? Never mind.

    (Poor Naru-chan. Always the target.)

    • Chibi Jennifer January 29, 2010 at 2:33 pm #

      Maybe because the transformation sequences are so pretty that they want to stand there and watch the entire thing :3


  63. ChibiRo January 29, 2010 at 1:44 pm #


    (Changed my user again. x3)

    • Chibi Jennifer January 29, 2010 at 1:52 pm #

      lol, maybe if it was instant XD

      The funny thing is, despite her transformations taking some time, no one has ever attacked them during the sequence- they’re invincible!!

      (*waves* ^^)

      • ChibiRo January 30, 2010 at 8:45 am #

        True true. XD

  64. Yue January 29, 2010 at 1:10 pm #

    Amazing! LOL! XD

  65. Usa January 29, 2010 at 12:11 pm #

    I remember thinking that the senshi wouldn’t last long against a conventional threat. Think about it. An MP-5 submachine gun fires 700 rounds per minute. Her transformation lasts 45 seconds. Hmmm….

    Even in the time it takes just to say, “Moon Crystal Power, Make-up!” she’d be dead. xD

    LOVE the second panel, it’s gorgeous.

    • Chibi Jennifer January 29, 2010 at 12:16 pm #

      Well you’re right about that one XD Remember when Tin Nyanko shot a fire at Eternal Sailor Moon? Seiya had no time to transform, she just ran to take the attack.

      Thanks :) Happy you like it ^.^

  66. Leo January 29, 2010 at 12:07 pm #

    lol this is soooo funny because it’s true xD…

  67. Kawaii Silence January 29, 2010 at 11:13 am #

    That’s a good point. Though from what I know the transformations don’t take that long and just made flashy for the anime (which I think just gets old). I love the second panel, Usagi looks so beautiful and natural. <3!

    • Chibi Jennifer January 29, 2010 at 11:24 am #

      We know we love all the Senshi henshin sequences though, even if all for show.. <3

      I don’t remember ever fast-forwarding the sequences when watching it. LOVE the music and special effects :3

  68. Brad January 29, 2010 at 11:04 am #

    Actually I think Naoko confirmed that all the transformations happen in a split second in real time but this is still hilarious. Love the last panel!

    p.s. You HAVE to do one about Tuxedo Mask’s …. wierd transformation! Arm sticking out for his hat… no, oh wait, it’s just sticking out!

    • Chibi Jennifer January 29, 2010 at 11:22 am #

      haha I’ve always wondered whether it was instant or if it really did take that long. There were several cases where you see the characters thinking while looking on at her henshin sequence (eg Mamoru, Sailor Aluminum Seiren etc)- which is only possible if it did take that long.

      (LOL. Tuxedo’s anime henshin is hilarious…but can’t beat the PGSM one, LOL!!)

      • DSBM April 23, 2010 at 10:40 am #

        This was hilarious! The fourth picture killed me. XD

        But actually, that you mentioned about the characters thinking while watching them transform, could be possible with an instant transformation. Don’t they tranform in a flash of light? (like Michiru in front of Haruka)
        Then it would be possible for them to think “Is that… Sailor Moon?” while her silhouette changes its appearence in that flash of light, as Michiru’s does if you look closely. Or when the light fades away and their view becomes more clear. That’s what I think. :p

  69. lotsofmoxy January 29, 2010 at 10:39 am #

    It’s sad that this is very true…

  70. DREWdesu January 29, 2010 at 10:07 am #

    HAHAHAHA That was hilarious… the 3rd frame thing was ADORABLE DD

  71. bleedingrosedg January 29, 2010 at 9:38 am #

    XD poor Naru-chan. sometimes I think she’d be better off if she could transform and save herself

  72. penelyn January 29, 2010 at 9:38 am #

    I love the second panel, so cute.

    XDDD Silly.
    Her transformation doesn’t actually take that long. ^^;;; Lots of people seem to misunderstand.

      I timed it, Moon Crystal Power takes 45 seconds :D That’s less than a minute!
      But 1 out of a 20 minute episode may seem long. *cough*

    Aaaawww, Usagi is so clueless! XP

          No worries :) Doujinshi are self-published Japanese works, usually fan mangas.

    haha love it :D i always thought about this, especially in season 1 when zoisite shoots the fire beam at mamoru and usagi and she still finds the time to transform an hour long haha

      lol, that scene continues to amaze me :D Actually, I wonder how completing a transformation was able to save them from being burnt? And how did they get back up? Super Sailor Jump?

      • spike110 January 30, 2010 at 4:05 am #

        haha yeah probably or they teleported, or the ginzuishou saved them xD
        i remember watching this episode when i was 6 thinking “this scene just doesnt make sense” xD

    Wow! The drawings of her transformation are amazing!

    hehe how cute!! I particularly like the last shot with the contrasting happy Usagi and Dead Naru XD

    • Chibi Jennifer January 29, 2010 at 10:33 am #

      Thanks :)!

      Usagi is always smiling while transforming, hehehee.

    LULZ… ;-D Poor Naru-chan!

    • Chibi Jennifer January 29, 2010 at 10:32 am #

      xD With her being attacked so many times I guess Usagi was too late~
