#43 Usagi’s Missing Father

MoonSticks #43 Usagi's Missing Father featuring Usagi Tsukino, Luna, Queen Serenity and Kenji Tsukino.

[[Usagi is in her bedroom with Luna]]
Usagi: Hey Luna..did I have a dad during the Silver Millennium?
Luna: Of course, why would you think otherwise?

Luna: Queen Serenity and your dad gave birth to you in your previous life.

[[Kenji Tsukino is happily walking passed her room]]
Usagi: I don’t remember what my dad looks like! We never see him and no one ever mentions him at all!

[[Kenji turns away and cries]]
Kenji (thinks): I know you never see me but saying that is just too cruel. *sob* *sniff*
Luna: To be honest I don’t remember him either.

{{The Silver Millennium refers to Usagi’s past life where she lived as Princess Serenity}}

    1: The Silver Millennium does not refer to Usagi s’ past life, but to the 1000 years in which the Moon Kingdom existed, times of wars, magic, legends, lost technology, and immortal matriarchs.
    2: Queen Serenity gave birth to Princess Serenity by using her Star Seed. They look exactly the same, the same silver-white hair, the same Star Seed (Illusionary Silver Crystal). Look at Usagi and Chibiusa; their hair is very different, Usagi has strawberry-blonde, straight, and noodle-like hair while Chibiusa has light pink, wavy, poofy hair. Usagi s’ Star Seed is still the Illusionary Silver Crystal, but Chibiusa’s Star Seed is the Pink Moon Crystal.
    3: Kenji did not hear Luna, he just came over from work, and is already crying when Luna says her line in the fourth panel. And even if he heard Luna s’ voice, Kenji would just think he heard voices while sweating and panting a little, then drop the suitcase, open the door, and find Usagi saying she was “practicing different voices for a (ventriloquism\animated) show”. Which she is propably gonna say once Kenji enters Usagi s’ room again after eating some noodles and taking an afternoon nap.

      Actually Silver Millennium refers to a place, not a time, whenever it is used.

      • deedee December 1, 2014 at 2:40 am #

        You can read in Sailor Moon Wikia, Silver Millennium refers to a time.
        “The Silver Millennium was a peaceful time period during the prehistoric age when the Moon Kingdom existed, along with the rest of the Solar System. It provides a setting for the past lives and future selves of most of the series’ major characters, and functions as a major driving force behind both plot and characterization.

        The original Silver Millennium is portrayed as an ancient Golden Age, marked by peace, prosperity, and good relations between the people of Earth and Moon. The English dub states that the Moon Kingdom existed one thousand years ago, but the original manga made it prehistoric. Despite its name, the Silver Millennium appears to have lasted much longer than a thousand years.”

    It’s my belief she had no dad. In the manga it is said queen serenity felt something hot brewing inside her and she knew her daughter would be born, blessed from the galaxy cauldron. The senshi were also born of the cauldron but just to their planets, no mothers, to protect this special soul that would be princess serenity. Serenity is all about rebirth. With the death of the silver millennium and her rebirth on earth, she was reborn with the power of a senshi. Her mother even tells her be grateful you are both a princess and senshi, because she could not transform andfightlike her friends before.

      Thanks for the comment Kimiski :) It’s always fun reading about the manga since I’m more familiar with the anime version (which MoonSticks is primarily based off)

  4. SailorStar9 February 13, 2013 at 2:54 am #

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but wasn’t it said that Princess Serenity was a virginal birth?

  5. Gilian Mendoza August 27, 2012 at 6:59 pm #

    how come he didn’t notice luna speaking

  6. sailorsenshi0111 July 22, 2012 at 6:21 am #

    i wonder what would happen is her father walked at the first panel instead???

  7. Jen June 5, 2012 at 1:58 pm #

    POOR KENJI!

  8. Amber April 2, 2012 at 6:38 am #

    I never noticed that she doesnt have a dad on the silver millenium XD

  9. Mina-P February 10, 2012 at 2:03 am #

    Poor Kenji…

  10. Daz_Dragon August 7, 2011 at 7:23 am #

    Interesting. My theroy was that if your a sailor then you can only have 1 child (thats cannon) and they would be chibi of that planet until their mother died or released their powers.

    • EternalSailorMoon123 August 12, 2011 at 6:40 am #

      But Usagi has two children (one of which is less known): Chibiusa and Kousagi. Kousagi is the second born of Usagi and Mamoru but she only appears in “Parallel Sailor Moon” where she becomes an Unnamed Sailor Senshi.

      • Dragoon11792 October 4, 2011 at 4:36 pm #

        That’s the parallel universe though, in the canon story line she only has one child.

        • Hoofbeats October 2, 2012 at 6:45 am #

          The one child theory was just that, a theory. Setsuna didn’t want Chibiusa to travel back in time because if she changed anything, there would be a parallel universe created. She did anyway, so “our” universe was created, and therefore, “our” universe is the parallel one. Setsuna said herself that the one child theory was based on Neo Queen Serenity only having one. She said nothing about the future “our” Usagi would make for herself, and she had two daughters. Chibiusa and Kousagi. Long story short, Parallel Sailor Moon features the Usagi we all know and love. Besides, it said Chibiusa was 15, not 900+ like the other universe.

          • IcePrincessKani January 16, 2014 at 5:27 pm #

            Actually Naoko made a statement that Parallel Sailor Moon was a contribution for the Year of the Rabbit as well as a way for her to explore the possibility of Usagi changing her mind and taking the easy way out when Guardian Cosmos offered her to toss her troublesome life aside and start anew with the path of a new star, meaning she wouldn’t be a senshi as well as she would be able to bear multiple children if she so wished.

            (Chibichibi was speculated to be Chibiusa’s sister, but that was discounted too with Sailor Vesta saying that Lunarians can only have one child, Sailor Pallas and Sailor Juno confirm it. )

  11. Daz_Dragon August 5, 2011 at 9:17 pm #

    Wait hang on a minute. If usagi was born from queen serenity wouldnt make her chibi moon? Because arent true sailor scouts born from the galaxy caldron (damn spelling)? Meaning her dad was a sailor too or else she was adopted? I have just realized how little effort she put into this part…

    • Kawaii Silence August 7, 2011 at 5:48 am #

      In the Silver Millennium, there was no Sailor Moon. So Queen Serenity wouldn’t have been Sailor Moon and Princess Serenity wouldn’t be Chibi Moon for the same reason. The Moon family has the power of the ginzuishou (I probably spelled that wrong) but it doesn’t manifest into a senshi form until Luna awakens Usagi in the present era. Even if there was a Sailor Moon in the Silver Millennium, in the present-Tokyo area there was no Sailor Moon before Usagi in that era so it wouldn’t make sense to be Chibi Moon when nobody else was holding the position of Sailor Moon. Chibiusa is Chibi Moon in the past because she is training and her mother currently claims the Sailor Moon title at that time. That is how I always understood it. Sorry if that doesn’t make any sense.

      And yeah you’re right about the Cauldron. In the view of the manga, all the stars and souls in the galaxy come from the Galaxy Cauldron. :)

  12. Phaeton August 5, 2011 at 1:43 pm #

    oh yeah! Why doesn’t anyone draw THE DAD! :) why are men always being left out of the picture? :)

  13. Sailorstarlover389 June 1, 2011 at 11:03 am #

    poor dad!!!thats so mean usagi!

  14. Ayen March 26, 2011 at 8:16 pm #

    I’m convinced back on the Moon Usagi was just hatched.

  15. Sailor Starlight January 4, 2011 at 9:31 pm #

    Hahaha XD
    This one is too funny!!!
    It’s my most favourite!!:D

    • Michiru April 3, 2011 at 4:02 am #

  17. usagihimeindonesian November 20, 2010 at 12:51 pm #

    princess serenity have a dad??i don’t know!

  18. Sailor Asteroid September 17, 2010 at 10:49 am #

    Who in the Silver Millenium is Princess Serenity’s dad! I guess this still counts as some kind of mystery… -.-

  19. SailorUranusFan June 7, 2010 at 2:41 pm #

    lol He’s so emotional i wonder what they’d do if they found out about her other parents

  20. Neoqueencosmos May 19, 2010 at 3:41 am #

    i have searched everywhere for princess serenity’s dad!! but nothing cumz up!

    aww poor kenji papa!

    • Chibi Jennifer May 19, 2010 at 9:06 am #

      Non-existent ;)

      • sailor chicken December 30, 2010 at 8:23 am #

        Is it king Endynion?

        • EternalSailorMoon March 26, 2011 at 7:57 am #

          but endymion is the prince from earth not the king of the moon.

          and i dont remember where but i think i heard somewhere that the royalty passes on thru the female line. so maybe they didnt need a father. maybe usagi was born by the power of the imperial silver crystal.
          or maybe usagi is an illegitimate child from a “mistake” queen serenity made! lol :P

  21. thepigtailedgirl May 14, 2010 at 8:58 am #

    you know what I’ve always wondered? how did serena’s parent’s give her the name in the silver millennium AND in the present? and this comic is one of my favourites!

    • Chibi Jennifer May 14, 2010 at 9:29 am #

      haha thanks :D

      ‘In the English dub they call her “Serena” and “Princess Serena” which makes it sound kinda..lame XD. In the original though, her earth name is Usagi (Bunny) so it’s different to Serenity :)

      • Death Rebirth Senshi June 16, 2010 at 4:51 am #

        lol I know.
        “SERENA, as sailor MOON you have a duty to find the MOON princess SERENA.” the dub just makes it that more obvious.

        • whatever! November 8, 2010 at 3:01 pm #

          it really makes you wonder about their brains… just like the sailor venus appears strip…

  22. Lucie April 4, 2010 at 11:56 pm #

    aw. he should look something like endymion, maybe with less adornments on his violet cape :))

  23. Dr. Rorschach March 15, 2010 at 7:37 am #

    Also on Shingo… was I the only one who wanted for him to become a hero and help the rest? Something of Sun powers was my idea.

  24. sailor saturn March 15, 2010 at 2:58 am #

    oh wow that is so funny yet u have to wonder how did neo queen sernity meet the king and WHAT DOES HE LOOK LIKE!? sailor saturn out

  25. Sailor Sun March 11, 2010 at 9:21 pm #

    HEHEHE That’s right..
    Poor Usagi’s dad!!

    This is really great hehehe XD

  26. NiRo~luff March 6, 2010 at 4:40 pm #

    Poor Kenji. Get’s forgotten when he’s barely there at all… And poor Mr. Serenity (lawl, he’d probably have to take his wife’s name, considering the kingdom *was* a matriarchy) never getting mentioned at all. I think it was the whole “Queen Serenity’s shine had another star within it” thing. Endy’s mommy and daddy never even show up. If Serenity was born in a virgin birth then how’d Endy get there? What, was he created from genetic material in ancient Terran labs or something and then heiled as their prince?

    • Chibi Jennifer March 10, 2010 at 9:18 pm #

      lol, your comment about Mr Serenity is so funneh XD XD

      • NiRo~luff April 5, 2010 at 4:29 pm #

        Yeah…poor guy gets completely forgotten… I even found one site that jokes that Artemis was actually Serenity’s dad during the Silver Millenium because apparently he was the only man present besides Endymion… >.<

  27. karen March 6, 2010 at 11:55 am #

    awww i feel soo sorry for usagi’s dad! and he’s so cute, why did he diseappeared from the series? Even in PGSM he’ no where to be seen (except in Usagi’s wedding day crying his eyes out n_n) And I think the question of who is her Silver Millenium father is an ever present for every fan.. does anyone knows if there is an official answer? that would be really interesting.
    Chibi Jen I LOVE your comic strips. never miss one. Continue the incredible work!! and thank you!

    • Chibi Jennifer March 6, 2010 at 12:50 pm #

      Thank you so much for your comment Karen >.<~ Really appreciate the motivation!

      And yes, I’m feeling pretty sorry for him now..lol, I keep picking on these poor characters in MoonSticks ^-^;

      He was quite enjoyable to watch during the first 2 seasons, it would have been nice to give him a few more appearances in the later seasons. It would also be interesting seeing his interaction with Mamo-chan, since Usgai and him officially date and we know her dad is against them XD

  28. Dr. Rorschach March 6, 2010 at 5:17 am #

    Wow, I never tought of that. Maybe Usagi came from a virgin birth.

    • Chibi Jennifer March 6, 2010 at 12:51 pm #

      haha, many have been suggesting that actually… wonder if it’s true @.@

      • Dr. Rorschach March 15, 2010 at 7:35 am #

        Well, in the Sailor Moon S series, they had a some Christian references with the holy grail and everything.

        • mamarylez November 23, 2012 at 4:08 pm #

          Maybe since Queen and Princess Serenity are from the Moon Kingdom, they are part of a special race of Moon people. Maybe reproduction works differently there? That would mean Usagi had to conceive Chibiusa WITH Mamoru because she was reborn as a human.

  29. Leo March 3, 2010 at 2:44 pm #

    I love this. I always wondered what the deal was with her and her father xD

  30. Joine March 2, 2010 at 1:24 am #

    Ahahaha yes! New Moonsticks!!! XD

    Poor Kenji-papa. I dunno why, but I find the background characters/villians the most appealing in anime, so I must do what I must do…

    *Squeezes Kenji-papa*

    I once wrote this drama-filled fan-fiction based on this very subject years ago. XD Well, it was more of an Queen Nehellenia fan-fiction centering around the Manga storyline where she tried to kill the princess as an baby. So I came up with the motive of why she would do this… and The Princess’s father came into it.
    In my fan-fiction I made Queen Nehellenia the younger sister of Queen Serenity. And she was pretty much powerless and under-appreciated– because of that one law that said that one Sailor Soldier could only be born to each royal family who ruled each planet… in order to avoid a over-population of Sailor Soldiers, and also to avoid one planet gaining the extra edge for having extra Sailor Soldiers over the other planets.
    So in a culture where being an Sailor Soldier meant practically getting everything they wanted in the royal courts.. Queen Serenity naturally got everything because she had an Sailor Crystal, which she of course eventually passed on to her daughter.
    This made Queen Nehellenia feel unloved, especially when the least wanted piece of property on the dark side of the moon was dumped off on her.
    It was made worse for her when the man she had been dating turned out to be only using her so that he could get closer to Queen Serenity… since how he was an low-ranking Earth nobleman, and couldn’t get into the royal parties to see her otherwise.
    So she started to really hate her sister Serenity… even more with a passion when she learned that this man had succeeded in attracting Serenity’s attention and actually had married her.
    She couldn’t stand it that Serenity took away the man she loved without even trying, and were actually going to have his child. So she went crazy and was in the process of killing her child when she was caught and stopped by Queen Serenity. Queen Serenity questioned why her own sister would want to kill her child… and that’s when Queen Serenity learned of this Earth Nobleman’s deicit, and how he had used Queen Nehellenia to get at Queen Serenity.
    Queen Serenity was of course horrified that she didn’t learn of this before it was too late… but swore that she would never raise her daughter around such scum who would use others like that. She divorced the guy, and had him banished.
    The Queen then made sure that far as her daughter was concerned, she to be told that she was born from an immaculate conception and certainly NOT from any guy.. especially not that guy. lol And this was also the reason why it was “forbidden” for The Pricess of the moon and the Prince of the Earth to date… not because the dude wasn’t related to Prince Endyimon at all, but due to the fact that the Queen of the moon had a deep mistrust of Earth noblemen after “the incident”. She was scared that her daughter might suffer the same heartbreak she did.

    Anyway, that was the fan-fiction in a nutshell. ^^;; I should probably find a place to start hosting that story again.

    • Chibi Jennifer March 1, 2010 at 9:11 am #

      wow…lol, that was quite intriguing :D That does relate to this question, eheheheheh!
