Aside from the main body of the Sailor Moon series, Ami features in her own short story in the manga, called "Ami's First Love." Originally published in Volume 14 of the manga, this was the only one of three "Exam Battle" stories to be made into a "Special" for the anime series.[5] In addition, a number of image songs featuring Ami's character have been released, including the contents of three different CD singles.[6] An image song or character song is a song on a tie-in album for an anime, game or dorama that is usually sung by the seiyuu or actor of a character, in-character. ...

Ami's most-emphasized character trait is that she is enormously intelligent. Her peers view her with a mixture of awe and distaste, misinterpreting her inherent shyness as snobbery, and so she tends to have a difficult time making new friends.[7] Naoko Takeuchi gave Ami genius-level intelligence to give the impression that Ami was not quite human, but her editor objected and this inhuman trait was later toned down.[8] Ami is depicted as sweet, gentle, and loyal, as well as slightly insecure.[9] Early on she relies somewhat heavily on the approval of her mother, teachers, and friends, but as the series progresses she becomes stronger and more confident in herself. She is generally the most sensible of the main characters, and is often the only one embarrassed when the group has a dull-witted moment. As the story begins, she attends Azabu Jūban Junior High along with Usagi Tsukino and Makoto Kino. In humans, shyness is the feeling of apprehension or lack of confidence experienced in regard to social association with others, e. ...

Throughout the series, much of Ami's free time is spent studying. She loves to read, and dreams aloud of one day being a doctor like her mother. She has great appreciation for art as well as science, and contrary to the usual depiction of a bookworm, even enjoys pop culture and romance novels (though she is usually embarrassed to admit it). In the manga, Ami also has something of a crazy streak — she often scolds Usagi and the others for not doing their homework, and she can become obsessive about being the best student. She sometimes displays attraction to boys her age, and other times aversion to the idea. Love letters are listed as the one thing she has most trouble with,[1] and when she later receives one, it gives her a rash.[5] In the anime, a classmate named Urawa learns her identity and expresses attraction to her, but this is never resolved, as he disappears after just two appearances in the first series.[10] Image File history File linksMetadata Amimanga. ...

Besides reading, Ami is also shown playing chess and swimming in order to relax.[1] As the team scholar, computers are listed her strong point; she even belongs to the club at school.[11] She loves all her classes, especially mathematics. Her favorite foods are given as sandwiches and anmitsu, with her least favorite being yellowtail.[1] Other loves include cats[12] and the color aquamarine.

Ami is one of the few girls in the series whose family situation is explicitly mentioned in the anime. Her parents are divorced, and she lives with her mother, a busy doctor who is not home very often. They look very similar, and Ami very much admires her mother and longs to live up to her example. Besides her workaholic tendencies, Ms. Mizuno is portrayed as a good person who openly resents not having more time to spend with her daughter. Ami's father is never named, but is stated in the manga and anime to be a painter. The manga says that he never visits them, having decided one day not to come home from the forest where he was relaxing and painting, but he sends her postcards on her birthday. Thinking about this, Ami sometimes resents her parents' selfishness in separating,[15] partly because divorce in Japan is taboo.[16] However, in the anime Ami seems to appreciate her father and seems to share some of his artistic traits, even composing a song at one point.[17] In the manga, Ami's mother is revealed to be fairly rich, as they live in a condominium.[18] Ami is shown testing the strength of a sword that the Sailor Senshi received on the moon by using it to chip a diamond ring. (Classically, a diamond is the hardest mineral.) When the girls panic, she calms them by saying that her mother has many more.[18] For the record label, see Divorce Records. ...

In the live-action series, Ami is especially shy and usually wears glasses while in public, even though she does not need them.[19] At her middle school, she has no friends before meeting Usagi and always eats lunch alone on the roof so she can study.[20] Usagi seems to be the only one to realize that Ami is merely shy, not truly standoffish, and in befriending her gradually helps Ami to learn that she is more than just a bookworm. By Act 34, when Ami's mother attempts to transfer her to another school because she thinks Ami's friends are bad influences, Ami rebels, avoiding the admission interview and spending the night at the Senshi hideout with Rei Hino. Later she tells her mother that what she's doing in her life right now is more important than studying, and her mother understands.[21] This article does not adequately cite its references or sources. ...

The kanji in Ami's name translate as "water" ( mizu?), "field" ( no?), "Asia" or "second" ( a?), and "beauty" ( mi?). It is structured as a pun, as the syllable "no" indicates a possessive, so that her name can also be understood as "Ami of Water." It is frequently mistranslated as "Friend of Water" because of the French word ami, which is included in some Japanese dictionaries.[22] In the English versions of the series, "Amy" mostly retains her family name of Mizuno. One early episode of the anime, however, shows her answering the phone in her house by saying "Anderson residence." DiC may have intended this as her last name, but she is reverted to Mizuno by Cloverway in the series' third season. In an early DiC promotional tape that advertised Sailor Moon to television stations, Ami was given the name Blue.[23] Japanese writing Kanji Kana Hiragana Katakana Hentaigana Manyōgana Uses Furigana Okurigana Rōmaji   ) are the Chinese characters that are used in the modern Japanese logographic writing system along with hiragana (平仮名), katakana (片仮名), and the Arabic numerals. ...

Ami's Senshi identity is Sailor Mercury. She wears a uniform colored in shades of blue, and is given specific titles throughout the various series. These include Soldier of Water and Intelligence,[24] Soldier of Wisdom,[25] and Soldier of Justice and Wisdom.[5] Her personality is no different from when she is a civilian, although certain powers are unavailable to her in that form.

As she grows stronger, Sailor Mercury gains additional powers, and at key points her uniform changes to reflect this. The first change takes place in Act 35 of the manga, when she obtains the Mercury Crystal and her outfit becomes similar to that of Super Sailor Moon. She is not given a new title.[15] A similar event takes place in Episode 151 of the anime, and she is given the name Super Sailor Mercury.[17] A third, manga-only form appears in Act 42, also unnamed but analogous to Eternal Sailor Moon (sans wings).[26] To meet Wikipedias quality standards, this article or section may require cleanup. ...

Dark Sailor Mercury

Dark Sailor Mercury, portrayed by Chisaki Hama, has a markedly different uniform from her "good" counterpart.

In Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, Ami is briefly taken over by the power of the Dark Kingdom and becomes Dark Sailor Mercury. This form first appears in Act 22, as a servant of Kunzite. Her sailor fuku has black tulle and lace on the back bow and sleeves, and tribal designs appear on her tiara and boots. She also gains a chain with a black charm on it around her waist. Her transformation phrase is Dark Power! Make-up! and is said in a much darker tone than her normal one. She wields a sword fashioned from an icicle, which she creates herself the first time her transformation is displayed. In promotional photos prior to her premiere, she was shown with a different sword, which seemed to have strings on it like a harp or violin; the latter seems more likely, as she is also seen holding a bow.

Dark Sailor Mercury is created when Kunzite manages to kidnap Ami in a moment of vulnerability while the other Senshi are busy. He exposes her directly to the power of Queen Metaria, causing drastic personality changes as well as the alterations to her uniform. She is self-confident to the point of egotism, and continues to attend school in civilian form, mainly to antagonize Usagi by brainwashing all of her former friends. Dressing predominantly in black, evil-Ami tends to move about slowly and dramatically, and when confronting the Senshi gives a sense of sadistic glee.

Dark Mercury seems to have no intention of being a follower to anyone, and is always trying to pursue her own agenda, which is to kill her friends and become as strong as possible.

Despite these alterations, certain aspects of the real Ami still remain. She still wants to do well in school, and wants friends, hence the brainwashing of her classmates.

Periodically, Sailor Moon attempts to heal her friend with the power of the Silver Crystal. Mercury is always snatched away before this can be completed, but it has some effect, ultimately resulting in her recovery. In Act 28, the catalyst for her finally returning to normal is when, having defeated Sailor Moon in battle, the sight of her injured friend causes her to realize she cares about Usagi, and to remember who she really is. After being healed, she has no memories of what happened while she was Dark Sailor Mercury, a fact which haunts even more than if she did remember, as she is now terrified of what she may have done to her friends while not in control.

Princess Mercury

According to the manga, during the Silver Millennium, Sailor Mercury was also the Princess of her home planet. She was among those given the duty of protecting Princess Serenity of the Moon Kingdom. As Princess Mercury, she dwelt in Mariner Castle and wore a light blue gown — she appears in this form in the original manga and in supplementary art.[28][29] Naoko Takeuchi once drew her in the arms of Zoisite, but no further romantic link between them was established in the manga or anime.[30] In the first stage musical, it is stated that the two of them were in love at the time of the Moon Kingdom,[31]; this is further established in the later Eien Densetsu, where Ami and a disguised Zoisite share a duet, "A Fabricated Forevermore" (偽りのForevermore Itsuwari no forevermore?).

Special powers and items

Ami is not shown using any special powers in her civilian form, and may not be able to.[32] She must first transform into a Sailor Senshi by raising a special device (pen, bracelet, wand, or crystal) into the air and shouting a special phrase, originally "Mercury Power, Make-up!"[33] As she becomes more powerful and obtains new transformation devices, this phrase changes to evoke Mercury Star, Planet, or Crystal Power.[34][35] In the anime, Sailor Mercury's transformation sequence evolves slightly over time, whether to update the background images or to accommodate changes to her uniform or a new transformation device, but the animation remains essentially the same.

Sailor Mercury has the power to manipulate water.[36] For the entire first story arc, she uses her powers only to create dense clouds of mist, chilling and blinding the enemy while her allies prepare more direct attacks. In the manga she usually does this without speaking, while in the anime it is given the name Shabon Spray.[37] The live-action series gives her an offensive power right away, namely Mercury Aqua Mist, which is a beam attack capable of destroying weaker enemies. She uses a total of five attacks in this series, most of which are variations on the first.[38] Impact from a water drop causes an upward rebound jet surrounded by circular capillary waves. ... Dramatic morning mist Mist is a phenomenon of a liquid in small droplets floating through air. ...


Sailor Mercury's first major offensive attack is Shine Aqua Illusion, introduced in the second story arc.[39] Aside from variations on her other powers (mostly improving their strength with the addition of "freezing" or "snow"), her next named attack is Mercury Aqua Mirage, used during the third arc of the manga and again in the special side-story "Ami's First Love" (manga and anime). Her final and most powerful power comes in the fourth story arc, when she takes on her second Senshi form (Super Sailor Mercury in the anime). At this stage she acquires a special weapon, the Mercury Harp,[15] and with it Mercury Aqua Rhapsody, which is her primary attack for the duration of the story.


In addition to her own powers, Sailor Mercury has more non-magical items than any other Senshi. Early on in the series she makes frequent use of an extremely powerful "Micro-miniature Super Computer"[40] that enables her to make special calculations, scan her surroundings, track the movements of allies as well as foes, and determine her enemies' weak points. The computer also works in sync with her Mercury Goggles[41] which analyzes the area around her and displays information in front of her eyes and on the Computer. The visor may be a hologram of some sort; that materialize across her face when she touches her earring. The manga also sometimes shows her wearing a small microphone connected to her earring, the utility of which is never explained. All of these devices gradually fall out of use as the series progresses.[35] In the live-action series, like most of the other Senshi, she receives a tambourine-like weapon called the Sailor Star Tambo.

In the manga, the Mercury Crystal and Mercury Harp are among her most significant magical possessions. The former is her Sailor Crystal and the source of all of her power, which becomes especially important in the fifth story arc. The latter has a will of its own and can even speak.

Ami Mizuno - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1790 words)
Ami is generally considered the sensible one of the five girls, and usually is a scapegoat for embarrassment when the group is having a dullard moment.
Ami lives with her mother, a busy doctor who is not home very often, and whose face is only ever seen in the manga.
Ami was given her own 'special,' called "Ami-chan no Hatsukoi" or "Ami's First Love." She was the only member of the team budgeted for such a story in the anime, though the other girls had them in the manga, and it is generally considered one of her best roles.
