Sailormoon Cats - Luna, Artemis, Diana
The oftentimes cute and adorable cats of Sailormoon: Luna, Artemis, and Diana.
Luna and Artemis were sent from the moon in the past to present-day Earth
in capsules where they slept until their arrivals.
Luna is the first cat we see appearing in episode one. She is black with red
eyes (though her human form has blue eyes), and she has a yellow crescent
moon on her forehead. Luna first meets Usagi in episode one when Usagi saves
her from being tortured by little kids. Later on, Luna appears in Usagi's
room and speaks to Usagi. She gives Usagi a brooch and the ability to
transform into the pretty soldier, Sailormoon. Luna tells Usagi that her
mission is to find their Princess and to defeat the Dark Kingdom. Luna
helps Usagi find three other Sailor Senshi, Mercury, Mars, and Jupiter. Luna
also gives the Sailor Senshi special items in the first season, like their
transformation sticks, Ami's super minicomputer, and several items for
Sailormoon. She later meets up with Artemis who brings along Sailorvenus.
In the S movie, Luna falls in love with a human, Kakeru, but is unable to
express her love because she is a cat. At the end of the movie, Sailormoon
uses her power to grant Luna her wish of being human for a short time.
Luna transforms into a young, pretty girl and poses as Princess Kaguya in
order to help Kakeru. Later on Luna also develops a crush on Yaten in
SailorStars (though she doesn't become human :P).
Luna is generally serious and helps keep the senshi, especially Usagi, on
track. She often becomes annoyed with Usagi when she goofs off or isn't
doing what she's supposed to. She is aptly described as Usagi's guardian
and mentor. However, she also has a non-serious side as well. She teases
Artemis a lot, and she develops crushes on human men, namely Kakeru and
Artemis is the male white cat. He first finds Aino Minako, and he gives her
the power to become Sailor V. Later, they meet up with the other Sailor
Senshi in Tokyo, and V becomes Venus. Artemis first appears in episode 33
Unfortunately, Artemis often gets the shorter end of the stick when it comes
to abuse. Luna likes to make fun of him constantly. However, he still
loves Luna, and he becomes incredibly jealous and hurt when he realizes that
she has a crush on someone else in the S movie. They make up, though, so
everything's pretty good until SuperS.
Diana is the kitten of Luna and Artemis appearing in SuperS episode 133.
She varies from pink to grey, so she's kind of pinkish grey, I guess, and
she is VERY cute. One of her habits is calling Mamoru "Mamoru-sama" and
Usagi "Usagi-sama" as they are the future King and Queen of Crystal Tokyo.
Diana first appears in SuperS by cuddling up to her father, Artemis, on
the street, calling him her dad. Luna and the Sailor Senshi assume that
Artemis has had an affair with another cat, and as a result, Luna smacks
the poor cat rather harshly. It is not until Chibi-usa finds her that
Diana reveals to all that she is the daughter of Artemis and Luna.
