#67 The Burning Pain of a Pretty Soldier

MoonSticks #67 The Fiery Pain of a Sailor Soldier comic strip featuring Rei Hino/Sailor Mars, Ami Mizuno/Sailor Mercury and Usagi Tsukino/Sailor Moon

[[Rei in her school uniform holds up her transformation pen]]
Rei: Mars Power..MAKE UP!

Sailor Mars (holding her ofuda scroll): I sense an evil aura around here. You two go ahead, I'll catch up with you later.
Sailor Mercury: OK!
Sailor Moon: Right!

[[Sailor Mars watches as Sailor Moon and Sailor Mercury hurry off into the distant]]

Sailor Mars (thinking): Gotta stick some band-aids on before I start getting blisters! Seriously! How do they expect me to fight in high heels?

    I just thought that girls can withstand more pain than guys do,hence of why they fight so long in high heels xP

      hahah its probably a matter of, girls wanting to look good all the time ;D

      I thought after a while she’d get used to it. Hm.

        The claim females have a higher pain tolerance than males is a myth, propagated by psuedo science. Now, Rei’s desire to ignore pain to avoid the more horrendous experience of fashion shaming may be a factor. But, as the Nostalgia Critic likes to point out in his review video… “14 years old…”

        As much of a feminist as the original creator is credited as, I have to wonder about that, especially comparing Eastern and Western animated portrayals of female protagonists.

        It’s still only the three of them, so its probably early on 8D

    See, THIS is why I wear gladiator sandals!

    • Chibi Jennifer July 18, 2015 at 11:54 am #

      Though it could be argued open shoes can also be dangerous while fighting ;D

      • SailorSun September 9, 2015 at 8:47 am #

        True, very true….. ‘switches shoes with Mars’ Yup, screw it. Let’s get some matching high-tops.

    Hey, if worse comes to worse, Rei can *always* throw her heels at the enemy.

    • Chibi Jennifer May 9, 2015 at 12:10 pm #

      She is pretty good at aiming…right? XD She shoots arrows!

    high heels hurt, that’s why i’d rather fight in sneakers… and something to prevent my legs from being scratched because that hurts like hell.

    • Chibi Jennifer May 9, 2015 at 12:11 pm #

      I can barely walk in them properly..let alone FIGHT in them ^^”

    Poor Mars. NOT. ‘laughs evily’

  6. leontinees December 30, 2014 at 9:11 am #

    I always wondered that! :O

    I don’t think I can fight in heels either. I can walk in them, but no fighting for me.

    • Chibi Jennifer December 31, 2014 at 12:13 pm #

      That’s great… I can’t even stand in them ^^”

  9. Hilary April 30, 2014 at 5:42 am #

    Wow thats so awesome!!! I realy love you’r art style! Do you just do chibi figures?


  10. Andy April 24, 2014 at 9:21 am #

    Hehe, this just reminded me early in the manga (got Brazilian vol.1! w00t!), when Mars does her first roll call (just before Makoto transforms into Sailor Jupiter for the first time), that she ends with “I will punish you with these high heels!” It’s a wonder they don’t break off at every fight.

    • Chibi Jennifer April 25, 2014 at 8:33 am #

      haha yeah, in the anime version she also points out her high heels quite a bit too. Rei making a fashion statement XD

      • MekakusenshiXX May 17, 2014 at 3:31 pm #

        Boys can do everything Girls can, but they can’t do it in high heels.
        Unless they are the Starlights.

        Wait a minute, are they boys or gir- *bleep*

        *Technical difficulties – Mind has exploded*

        • Chibi Jennifer May 19, 2014 at 9:59 am #

          Pretty sure they’re girls.. ;D

          • MekakusenshiXX May 23, 2014 at 5:23 pm #

            Well. They’re girls now.

            Why, you ask? (even if no one is asking)


          • Chibi Jennifer May 24, 2014 at 9:01 am #

            ahahaha NoooOOOO…

  11. Chrissy April 12, 2014 at 9:35 am #

    LOL! I’ve always felt sorry for Mars fighting in those heels…. Yay for the update and double yay for colour!!!!

  12. LadyOfBarians April 5, 2014 at 9:48 am #

    this made my day xD
    nice job

  13. MistyQue April 5, 2014 at 8:23 am #

    it was worth your while hon! i love it!

  14. clm April 4, 2014 at 5:59 am #

    The evil aura of blisters. This makes perfect sense!

  15. Rhythm-Wily April 2, 2014 at 7:11 pm #

    They’re magic! Er, right!

  16. wampir00 March 28, 2014 at 4:06 pm #

    jajjaja! I always asked myself how that girls could fight with high heels? that was insane!!! jjaajaja! poor mars, and the other girls with that terrible kind of shoes!

    • Chibi Jennifer March 28, 2014 at 4:06 pm #

      :D! Thanks for checking out my comics ^^

      • EndyMX March 30, 2014 at 3:48 am #

        Colors are lovely! :D

        Hahaha about the high heels, I didn’t catch the pain, maybe because I’m a boy, but now… I think they were special magical heels that didn’t cause her any pain, the kind of heels that women would like to confiscate and give to scientist so they can understand and market hahaha.

        I only know I loved how Mars got those stylish shoes :) I actually loved all the designs!

        • Chibi Jennifer March 30, 2014 at 8:25 am #

          haha yeah! XDD
          I think this one’s more for the girls to relate. I think heels in general look great but the reality is for a lot of us it’s difficult and painful to walk in XD I try not to think about Sailor Mars being 14 years old and running around in it like a pro XDD

          • MekakusenshiXX May 17, 2014 at 3:39 pm #

            I have a confession to make- I have never worn high heels. EVAR. But I guess I can still relate to the blisters from all the times on holidays walking around Wet’n’Wild water park for hours barefoot because someone stole my shoes while I was on a waterslide.

          • Chibi Jennifer May 19, 2014 at 9:57 am #

            Oh what! That’s cruel :<

  17. Chris March 28, 2014 at 1:08 am #

    That is something I never did grasp about the magical girl concept: the complete lack of practicality. Every time I see the shoes or the power up sequences, I keep thinking of Oliver Platt from the Three Musketeers mocking the martial artist.

    • Chibi Jennifer March 28, 2014 at 6:27 am #

      It’s fun though and we can see the appeal, eheehe ^__^

  18. Crystal Queen March 27, 2014 at 10:10 am #

    I can totally relate. XD

  19. roxii March 27, 2014 at 6:26 am #

    Great and funny comic! While I do like the coloration, I also think the comics were fantastic just in black and white.

  20. TuxedoMiniMask March 27, 2014 at 1:18 am #

    Hahahaha! I love it

  21. Leo March 26, 2014 at 5:58 pm #

    Hahaha, now were is the sequel for Sailor Venus? I wonder how she deals with the pain?

    • Chibi Jennifer March 26, 2014 at 6:35 pm #

      She goes around as Sailor V in heels. I think she will manage XDDDD

      • Leo March 27, 2014 at 4:17 am #

        Haha, you are right. She must be used to it by now! I bet she would be the rest in a race in heels for sure. She already does backflips :P
