MoonSticks Sailor Moon comic #8 - Sad Kitty Day, Distressed Artemis featuring Artemis, Minako Aino/Sailor Venus, Luna, Yaten Kou/Sailor Star Healer, Kakeru Oozora and Rhett Butler

Hi! I'm Chibi Jen and I've been making cute and fun Sailor Moon comic strips since 2009. If you enjoy my comics, please consider tipping to show your appreciation. Thanks for the support ❤


Minako: What’s the matter Artemis? Why the doom and gloom face?
Artemis: *sigh*

Artemis: Luna is on a date with some guy who left her flowers. The worst part is she looked so happy.
Minako: Aw come on, cheer up, I’m dateless too! *Luna sure is popular though*

Artemis: .. How am I to compete with handsome men like them? I’m just a cat..
Minako: OH NO!! It can’t be my Yaten!!

Narrator: Meanwhile…
Luna: Oh dear.
Narrator: Artemis didn’t realise he was a cat. Well, neither did Luna.

    In the 90’s series, I don’t get why seasons 1-4 are English dubbed and season 5 is not.

    • Chibi Jennifer April 18, 2020 at 11:17 am #

      I think had to do with censorship issues back in the day, seeing as the three lights would literally be changing genders on screen

    Well, that sorta happens when you expect Clark Gable and end up with Rhett Butler.

    …Hey, I’m a 30-something grandpa, gimme a break, alright? ^^’

    Great job imitating the… fat cat thingy. Love the comics. Wait, why would a guy go on a date with a cat? Oh, and Minako looks so cute!

  6. Sailor Ninjago June 24, 2014 at 4:31 pm #

    Sailor Ninjago: NOOOOOOO NOT YATEEEENN!!!!! *fangirls over Yaten*
    Yes I love Yaten for no reason XD

    Um…Tsubasa Chronicles Starlight? Luna is about 1 thousnad years old. It’s in the first season.

    • SailorEris1222 August 1, 2011 at 1:04 pm #

      No, I think she means Rhett Butler’s owner is smart to have arranged a “blind date” for her cat with Luna. :)

  12. Tsubasa Chronicles Starlight April 25, 2011 at 10:09 am #

    U know, 4 a 5 yr old, she sure is smart. Bet that damn cat had somethin 2 do w/ it. >_< Poor Artemis!!!

  13. Chronos Typhoon! I heart Set-chan! April 21, 2011 at 4:34 am #

    How is Diana gonna be born if Luna keeps dating other men? Diana must disapear alot in the 30th century! Doesn’t Minako-chan know Yaten is Sailor Star Healer?

  14. sailorsun1998 April 10, 2011 at 10:59 am #

    ok… who is yaten?

    • Chibi Jennifer April 10, 2011 at 9:54 pm #

      Sailor Star Healer =) Character from final season

  15. Starlight January 25, 2011 at 9:29 am #

    Who would do that 2 Artemis???? :(
    Never go out w/ somebody that u haven’t seen since the beginning of the series. 4 real, that cat is a bad memory of Zoisite. O well :)

    • FireFlames March 27, 2011 at 8:48 pm #

      LUV IT
      lol i thought it was yaten but will yaten give flowers to a cat???

  16. Iikku13 December 4, 2010 at 9:48 pm #

    Rhett Butler is the best! I love that cat, brings back memories

  17. Sailor Asteroid September 15, 2010 at 7:33 pm #

    Man… Poor Artemis… But, Luna will always love him!

  18. eternal moon July 31, 2010 at 10:53 pm #

    WHATTTT!!!!a cat has a date!!!

    • Chibi Jennifer August 2, 2010 at 1:29 pm #

      Women around the world..be envious lol

      • SailorKittyKat January 15, 2013 at 1:43 pm #

        I am VERY envious. I’m greener than Jupiter, I’m so jealous.

        Me: *sighs* I wish I had a date.
        Minako: *pats my back* Cheer up, KittyKat! We’re dateless, too.
        Rei, Makoto: *nods*
        Ami: *looks away suspiciously*
        Me: Ami-chan…? Is there something you’re not telling us?
        Ami: *blushes* Ryu’s back in town this week. We’re going to a convention at the astronomy tower tomorrow.
        Me, Minako, Rei, Makoto: *sweatdrop*
        Me: Why does Ami-chan get to date people when we don’t?! We’re lovable, right?
        Minako, Rei, Makoto: *nods*
        Me: *sniffles*
        Usagi: *Runs up excitedly* Hey, girls! Guess what? Mamo-chan just invited me to a fancy dinner and dance tomorrow night, just the two of us!
        Me: *plops to the ground, puts elbows on knees and head in hands*
        Usagi: *looks at others, confused* Is she okay?
        Ami, Rei, Minako, Jupiter: *sweatdrop* Yeah, Usagi-chan. She’ll be okay.

  19. eternal sailor sedna July 31, 2010 at 10:51 pm #

    xd such the super-duper popular luna!(i wish i can popular like luna)

  20. Sailorlunapurplepearl July 25, 2010 at 11:13 am #

    whos the one who’s ALL ARRANGED?

    • Zeke December 1, 2010 at 5:19 pm #

      According to the transcript, that’s Usagi’s mom. Guess she helped Luna get gussied up for the occasion.

      • Chibi Jennifer December 1, 2010 at 7:31 pm #

        O_o Oh.. It’s not supposed to be Usgai’s mom so I think the translator got a bit confused ^^; She’s supposed to be the cat’s owner :D

  21. bunnychan July 8, 2010 at 5:45 am #

    But it was her Yaten before

  22. SailorUranusFan June 8, 2010 at 12:47 am #

    lol Luna was totally loving yaten in that last season :) (wach out minako…..)

    • Chibi Jennifer July 27, 2010 at 11:35 am #

      I think yaten’s fondness of Luna is probably greater than Minako XDD

  23. Joine June 6, 2010 at 11:02 pm #

    My little brother ADORED Rhett Butler.

    And the fact that he became some massive Youma-thing is why he still hates Zoisite, even to this day. ^^

    And he loves Minako/Sailor Venus, too.

  24. NiRo~luff November 1, 2009 at 3:56 pm #

    XD Rhett Butler…poor kitty, got totally forgotten when Artemis showed up.

    You gotta love him. Saves Luna TM style with the remains of a fish and makes one badass-looking DaiYouma. Oh, and he gets called “Red Battler” in one fansub! XD

    • Chibi Jennifer November 1, 2009 at 4:26 pm #

      Rhett is so funny and cute indeed ^^ Such a hero XD

  25. Kibou no Hikari October 3, 2009 at 1:35 pm #

    Poor Artemis… Luna is quite popular though. First Kakeru and then Yaten, wow… Excellent work!

  26. SMfan101 September 28, 2009 at 5:04 am #

    do u plan on making any more cat comics? or of them in their human forms? (sorry don’t mean to make it sound like I’m requesting anything, just curious)

    • Chibi Jennifer September 28, 2009 at 8:54 am #

      I might do a few more cat comics in the future, but I’m not sure about their human forms (since MoonSticks is based off the anime, and only human Luna appears in the Movie)


      • SMfan101 September 28, 2009 at 11:34 am #

        oh. okey dokey! :D
        either way u make awesome comics!

  27. Lt-Settai-Tenshi September 27, 2009 at 12:52 pm #

    Oh my God, it’s Hercules! I remember him!! That was one of my favorite episodes!

    • Chibi Jennifer September 27, 2009 at 10:25 pm #

      haha yes! Hercules was his English dubbed name xD So funny

      • Lt-Settai-Tenshi September 28, 2009 at 3:52 am #

        -^ ^- I only saw the english dubbed version of the original series…still trying to get it uncut. What was his original name?

        • SMfan101 September 28, 2009 at 5:03 am #

          rhett butler i think.
          red butler?
          something like that

        • Chibi Jennifer September 28, 2009 at 10:23 am #

          Yup, Rhett Butler ;) If you’re unsure, I’ve always listed the characters which are featured in the comics underneath the comic ^_^

          • Timesage May 24, 2010 at 5:22 am #

            He’s named after a character from “Gone with the Wind” as is his owner.

  28. SMfan101 September 20, 2009 at 11:21 am #

    yay yay yay!!!
    so hard to find a good SM kitty comic!!
    good job! love it!

    • Chibi Jennifer September 20, 2009 at 12:09 pm #

      Thank you so much ^___^ (Very cute artemis gravatar btw :D)

      • SMfan101 September 28, 2009 at 4:50 am #

        why thank you thank you!!!

  29. Nameless August 17, 2009 at 11:00 am #

    Absolutely priceless. Poor Artemis, and Luna for that matter. I always thought that fat cat was cute with his crush on Luna.

    • Chibi Jennifer August 19, 2009 at 10:13 am #

      The fat cat cute is adorable ;) How could anyone not like him ^.^

  30. Chibi-Toria July 19, 2009 at 3:17 pm #

    poor minako haert broken because of a cat!!!xD

  31. Peter June 21, 2009 at 12:47 pm #

    Yeah I thought of the dub monsters too, but Luna looks pissed lol.

    • Chibi Jennifer June 22, 2009 at 10:07 am #

      hahaha, we knows she secretly doesn’t mind him that much ;)

      • Timesage May 24, 2010 at 5:23 am #

        She had like 6 “first Loves” in the Sailor V manga. I think she’ll recover quickly..

  32. Sailor Gold Rabbit June 6, 2009 at 8:26 am #

    Question: Was the “doom and gloom face” a reference to episode 40 of the English dub?

    • Chibi Jennifer June 6, 2009 at 8:28 am #

      lol.. not really! ahaha.. but it could if you want it to be ^.^;

      • Sailor Gold Rabbit June 6, 2009 at 8:33 am #

        Okey dokey then! :D

  33. Sarah May 30, 2009 at 12:01 pm #

    My favorite so far ! I love the moon kitties. :)

  34. Chibi Jennifer May 24, 2009 at 7:40 am #

    awww thank you guys :3 I’m so happy you guys are liking these :D

    And @ Maria, thanks for visiting Chibi land ^^ I always try to encourage people to visit both, because they’re quite closely linked together :D

    Thanks for your compliments!

  35. Maria May 24, 2009 at 7:35 am #

    That’s so cute! You’re such a talented chibi artist. I loved your other website ChibiLand! Fantastic job on both. I hope I get to se more of your comics soon too.

  36. Strawberrluv. May 23, 2009 at 8:23 am #

    LOVE! <333333 that’s so adorable and awesome! :)

  37. Kitty May 21, 2009 at 12:54 pm #

    OMG!! the comic is very nicely drawn! i love it! btw, i like your online name, Chibi. It’s a nickname I gave to my boyfriend ^^

  38. Queen Eris May 18, 2009 at 9:51 am #

    I’m loving these! ^_^ I don’t think I could come up with such jokes all the time, to say nothing about drawing the comics!!! Good job! ;)

  39. Sailor Gold Rabbit May 17, 2009 at 8:43 am #

    Ha ha ha! Hi-larious! Minako fraking out in the third panel was so…Minako. There’s really no other word.

    Is it just me, or is there quite a bit of bestiality in Sailor Moon? There’s Luna/Kakeru, ChibiUsa/Helios, Luna/Yaten, and this, which could possibly happen. And notice how it’s mostly Luna getting hot for humans? What a perv. :P

    • Brad May 17, 2009 at 1:46 pm #

      They’re all aliens anyway so I don’t think it matters. ;)

      • Sailor Gold Rabbit May 18, 2009 at 1:02 am #

        True, true. :)

    • Chibi Jennifer May 18, 2009 at 10:01 am #

      Luna does seem like a bit of a perv..esp when with Yaten XD XD Then again, she did try to*kiss* kakeru when he was asleep XD

  40. Chibi Jennifer May 16, 2009 at 11:49 pm #

    Rhett Butler sure is popular!! And he only appeared for an ep or two XD XD

    • jade June 23, 2009 at 11:58 am #

      oh yeah i forgot that he appears in 2 episodes -_-;

  41. jade May 16, 2009 at 3:08 pm #

    ha ha,it’s rhett buttler and i haven’t seen hin sience episode 31

  42. Mamo-chan May 16, 2009 at 6:53 am #

    Rhett Butler! Oh, that episode in classics was hilarious! Especially when he was blushing LOL
    Nice work, as always!

  43. KTVB May 16, 2009 at 12:17 am #

    love the idea!! Original!! XD

    love the drawings as usual :D Keep it up!

  44. Serena May 15, 2009 at 10:08 pm #

    Your comics are so funny and always make me laugh, keep it up <3

  45. Odango-sama May 15, 2009 at 10:08 pm #

    Great! ^_^

    Though I didn’t completely get it. ^_^

    But that’s me, you know. ^_^’

    • Chibi Jennifer May 15, 2009 at 10:11 pm #

      oh..^^;; hmm..that’s a shame.. which part did you not really understand? Was it the third panel? I had a slight feeling it may have confused some people.. either by the characters or the way I presented it.

  46. Chibi Jennifer May 15, 2009 at 7:57 pm #

    Did anyone feel that Luna and Artemis was lacking a bit of chemistry? When Diana came, it kinda felt like a tease, and I didn’t quite see the mother-daughter thing going between Luna and Diana either. is it just me?

    • TVB_4eva May 15, 2009 at 9:22 pm #

      now you mentioned it, YEAAA I AGREE !!! Especially in the 3rd panel, Luna and Diana just didnt quite share the mother-daughter relationship.

      POOR ARTEMIS !!!!!


      • Chibi Jennifer May 15, 2009 at 10:00 pm #

        Thank Kyu! ^_^

        Umm.. Diana isn’t featured in this comic, it was more like a general question thrown in the air (kinda randomly too) Sorry if that confused you ^_^;

        • TVB_4eva May 16, 2009 at 8:59 pm #

          OOOPZZZ… T_T
          soz i kinda got confused…

          hope to see a close bond between Luna,Artemis and perhaps with they child, Diana soon!
          Maybe even when Diana leaves with Senshi perhaps xD !!!
          that would be so sad……

          but those cats are just sooo cute <3

    • Brad May 15, 2009 at 10:31 pm #

      Yeah, I agree! Never thought of that before you mentioned it! After all of her lecturing Usagi of Chibi Usa she doesn’t give Diana the love she should.

  47. Miss Breeziness May 15, 2009 at 6:04 pm #

    This is cute! :)

    Poor Artemis…

    • mw May 15, 2009 at 7:51 pm #

      don’t you mean poor Luna? :p

      • Miss Breeziness May 15, 2009 at 8:06 pm #

        Both. :)

        • Chibi Jennifer May 15, 2009 at 10:01 pm #

          Well, it is called “Sad Kitty Day”, that includes Luna :D

  48. RainStar May 15, 2009 at 3:01 pm #

    Hehe Luna does have good taste though!

    • Chibi Jennifer May 15, 2009 at 10:03 pm #

      Agreed, they’re good looking! Not a bad personality, either- especially Yaten’s softy side… ;]

  49. kressa May 15, 2009 at 1:01 pm #

    hehehe. so cute :D is this story based on the sailor moon s movie?

    • Chibi Jennifer May 15, 2009 at 1:08 pm #

      Thanks kressa ^_^

      This story is based on a few things, there’s reference to the original season where we have the fat cat, then Kakeru who is from the S Movie (ur right here), and Yaten from the final season :) You would really need to have seen the entire series to fully understand this one :)

      • kressa May 15, 2009 at 9:26 pm #

        yeah. i definitely NEVER got to see the rest of the sailor moon series stateside T^T i knew they got as far as the black moon [i think that’s where they were] then cartoon network just stopped showing them to fit in new shows [that weren’t as great as sailor moon].

        • Chibi Jennifer May 15, 2009 at 9:57 pm #

          AH yes.. the old days where we had to access Sailor Moon through the English Dub on TV.. but now with faster internet connection, it’s pretty easy to get hold of all the other seasons (and in the original Japanese audio and English Subtitles) aww…you’re really missing out on the other seasons, they get really good :) If you are interested, lemme know- *whisper*I know a place where you can download them all for free */whisper*


          • kressa May 16, 2009 at 7:20 am #

            really? lol. i know i’ve come across a site too and told my best friend about it. might have to dig through my sent emails and see if i can find it LOL

          • Chibi Jennifer May 17, 2009 at 11:43 am #

            Here it is: http://www.sailormoonfansubs.com/index.php What I like about this is that there’s also direct downloading so it’s much faster if you wanted to watch them as you download as oppose to downloading the whole thing in BT.

          • kressa May 17, 2009 at 11:46 am #

            thanks, jen :) you’re the best!

        • Brad May 15, 2009 at 10:29 pm #

          HUH!?! You missed S and SuperS (3rd and 4th seasons!) they were dubbed into English and put on Cartoon Network too!

          • kressa May 16, 2009 at 7:18 am #

            i didn’t have time to watch them coz of after school activities T^T

  50. Emily May 15, 2009 at 11:08 am #

    Wahhh~ So cuuute ^_^ I love Artemis’ and Luna’s expressions X3 Your comics are awesome … how long does it take you to do one? I wish I had the motivation to post stuff up weekly.

    • Chibi Jennifer May 15, 2009 at 12:09 pm #

      Thanks mle :D I usually spend the week thinking of an idea (brainstorming during work *cough* XD) and then on average 4-5 hours to put it all together :) The thought of keeping something weekly was a bit daunting at first, but it’s quite fun and it becomes a habit. ^-^ You should definitely do something like this too!! Your art is getting more and more amazing.

      Thanks for dropping by :D

  51. Naru May 15, 2009 at 8:47 am #

    Hehe, gotta love Rev Butler :D

    • Chibi Jennifer May 15, 2009 at 10:04 pm #

      He was so funny in the series.. I just HAD to whack him into a comic strip :D

  52. Brad May 15, 2009 at 7:54 am #

    LOL! Yay! A Moonkitty comic! Never realised that Luna only likes human men!

    • Chibi Jennifer May 15, 2009 at 12:45 pm #

      hehe, this one is for Moonkitty ;)

    • Melissa May 27, 2009 at 10:50 am #

      OMG hilarious…I love that fat kitty that has a serious crush on Luna…it’s one of my desktop backgrounds!

      Keep up the good work, fellow moonie!

      • Chibi Jennifer May 27, 2009 at 11:35 am #

        aww..thank you! ^.^ It’s amazing how many fans his has XD XD We all love him XD

Leave us a comment :D!
