[[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?

    So I avoid high heels to the fullest. I prefer to wear sneakers, sandals or even tennis shoes.

      I dread formal occasions the most…when non-heels aren’t really an option XDDD

    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

        Omg yassss someone feels the pain too

      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.

  9. SailorStar9 May 9, 2015 at 12:09 pm #

    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’

  12. 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 ^^”

  15. 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?


  16. 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…

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