Profile

Ami's most-emphasized character trait is that she is enormously intelligent—in the anime and manga she is rumored by other characters to have an IQ of three hundred, while in the stage musicals this is stated as a fact.[6] She is adept at English in both the musicals and the anime.[7] 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.[8] Ami is depicted as sweet, gentle, and loyal, as well as slightly insecure.[9] Anne Allison describes her as "a smart girl who needs to relax", calling her "conscientous" and "studious", "everything Usagi is not".[10] Early on in the story she relies 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, later, Makoto Kino. IQ redirects here; for other uses of that term, see IQ (disambiguation). ...

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 and becomes one in both Parallel Sailor Moon and the live action series. In the musicals, Ami's dream of being a doctor and leaving Japan to study abroad is a recurring theme.[11] The first part of the song Dream Yume wa Ookiku (ドリーム 夢は大きく lit. Dream - Dreams are Huge?) shows Ami's conflict between studying abroad and growing up or being with everyone else and staying a young girl. She faces a similar dilemma in the anime, but very directly; given the opportunity to study in Germany, she gets as far as the airport before deciding to stay in Japan and fight evil alongside her friends.[12][13] Image File history File linksMetadata Amimanga. ...

Ami 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 both the anime and the manga, Ami's diligence in her studies becomes a running gag; she often comically scolds Usagi and the others for not doing their homework, and she can become obsessive about being the best student. Her character has been interpreted as a political commentary on the education system of Japan.[14] 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,[2] and when she later receives one, it gives her a rash.[4] 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.[15] Popular culture, or pop culture, is the vernacular (peoples) culture that prevails in a modern society. ...

Besides reading, Ami is shown playing chess and swimming in order to relax.[2] As the team scholar, computers are listed her strong point; she even belongs to the club at school.[16] She loves all her classes, especially mathematics. Her favorite foods are given as sandwiches and anmitsu, with her least favorite being yellowtail.[2] Other loves include cats[17] 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, named Saeko in the live-action series.[18] They look very similar, and Ami admires her mother and longs to live up to her example.[14] 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,[19] partly because divorce in Japan is taboo.[20] However, in the anime Ami seems to appreciate her father and seems to share some of his artistic traits, at one point even composing matching lyrics for a tune that had none.[21] In the manga, Ami's mother is revealed to be fairly rich, as they live in a condominium.[22] 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.[22] Divorce or dissolution of marriage is the ending of a marriage before the death of either spouse. ...

In the live-action series, Ami is especially shy and usually wears glasses while in public, even though she does not need them.[23] At her middle school, she has no friends before meeting Usagi and always eats lunch alone on the roof so she can study.[24] 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.[25] A pair of modern glasses Glasses, also called eyeglasses or spectacles are frames, bearing lenses worn in front of the eyes normally for vision correction, eye protection, or for protection from UV rays. ... // Middle school serves as a bridge between the Elementary School and the High School. ...

Aspects and forms

As a character with different incarnations, special powers, transformations and a long lifetime virtually spanned between the Silver Millennium era and the 30th century, Ami gains multiple aspects and aliases as the series progresses. The Silver Millennium was golden-age of an ancient civilization in the famous series, Sailor Moon. ...


Sailor Mercury

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,[26] Soldier of Wisdom,[27] Soldier of Justice and Wisdom,[4] and Soldier of Love and Exams. Her personality is no different from when she is a civilian, although certain powers are unavailable to her in that form. Japanese high school students in uniform, many are girls wearing sailor girl outfits The sailor outfit Japanese school uniform (セーラー服 sērā-fuku) is strictly for girls of middle and high school age (although some people wear it as a costume). ...


In Japanese, the name for the planet Mercury is Suisei (水星?), the first kanji meaning 'water' and the second indicating a celestial object. Although the Roman planet-name is used, Sailor Mercury's abilities are water-based due to this aspect of Japanese mythology. Initially most of her powers are strategic rather than offensive,[8] and she possesses various pieces of computerized equipment to help her study the enemy.


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.[19] A similar event is divided between episodes 143 and 151 of the anime, and she is given the name Super Sailor Mercury.[21] A third, manga-only form appears in Act 42, unnamed but analogous to Eternal Sailor Moon (sans wings).[28] To meet Wikipedias quality standards, this article or section may require cleanup. ...

In Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, Ami is briefly taken over by the power of the Dark Kingdom and becomes Dark Mercury. This form first appears in Act 21, 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. 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. This sword was redecorated and given to Zoisite. Image File history File links Download high-resolution version (595x1022, 1187 KB) Chisaki Hama as Ami (Dark Mercury). ...

Dark 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. This article is about the villain group. ...

Dark Mercury has 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.[29] She shows blatant disrespect to Kunzite and the other Shitennou, even to Queen Beryl, perhaps because, unlike even the Shitennou, she had been directly exposed to Metaria's power during her conversion, as opposed to having Queen Beryl or another intermediary filtering it.

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 Mercury. This haunts her, as she becomes terrified of what she may have done to her friends while not in control.

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.[31][32] Naoko Takeuchi once drew her in the arms of Zoisite, but no further romantic link between them was established in the manga or anime.[33] In the first stage musical, it is stated that the two of them were in love at the time of the Moon Kingdom,[34]; 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?).

In the manga, Ami can dowse without any aids.[35] Otherwise, she is not shown using any special powers in her civilian form, and may not be able to.[36] 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!"[37] As she becomes more powerful and obtains new transformation devices, this phrase changes to evoke Mercury Star, Planet, or Crystal Power.[38] 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.[39] 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.[40] 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.[41][citation needed] Impact from a water drop causes an upward rebound jet surrounded by circular capillary waves. ...

Sailor Mercury's first major offensive attack is Shine Aqua Illusion, introduced in the second story arc, which can be used as a simple projectile, to freeze the enemy in solid ice, or to create a defensive barrier.[42] 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,[19] 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"[43] 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 works in sync with her Mercury Goggles,[44] which analyze the area around her and display information in front of her eyes and on the Computer. The visor may be a hologram of some sort; it materializes across her face when she touches her earring. The manga sometimes shows her wearing a small microphone connected to her earring, which she uses to communicate with Luna at the Senshi hideout during the manga's first arc. All of these devices gradually fall out of use as the series progresses.[citation needed] In the live-action series, like most of the other Senshi, she receives a tambourine-like weapon called the Sailor Star Tambo. She is one of two Senshi to use it for a named attack (Mercury Aqua Storm), and later can transform it into a sword. For other uses, see Supercomputer (disambiguation). ...

In the manga, the Mercury Crystal and Mercury Harp are among her most significant magical possessions.

Ami was not included in the original proposal for a hypothetical Codename: Sailor V anime, which instead featured Minako's very similar-looking best friend from that series, Hikaru Sorano.[45] She was present, however, by the time the concept was expanded to center on Sailor Moon.

Creator Naoko Takeuchi designed Ami as the "team brain,"[3] giving her genius-level intelligence to create the impression that she was not quite human—in fact, the character was originally intended to be a cyborg with an accelerator. One possible storyline involved her losing an arm or being injured in some other way and dying from it, but Takeuchi's editor objected, so Ami became a fully human character.[46] Naoko Takeuchi (武内直子 Takeuchi Naoko), born March 15, 1967, is a manga artist who lives in Tokyo, Japan. ...

Sailor Mercury's original costume design, like the others', was fully unique. It featured full-length sleeves, pink ribbons, shoulder guards, green accents, buttons on the stomach, and high-tech goggles. Later, Takeuchi was surprised by these sketches and stated that she did not remember drawing them.[47] She also describes Ami as looking like Noriko Sakai,[3] a J-pop idol of the early 1990s, and in Ami's original debut, Usagi thinks to herself that Ami resembles Miss Rain, a character from another Takeuchi series. This reference was removed in the 2003 renewal manga.[48] In the English manga, a similar comment was made, but referencing Demi Moore.

Certain background details of Ami's character were chosen symbolically—for instance, her Western astrological sign is given as Virgo,[2] which in astrology corresponds to the planet Mercury.

The kanji in Ami's last name translate as "water" ( mizu?) and "field" or "civilian" ( no?); and her first name translates as "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.[49] 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. ...

In the English versions of the series, "Amy" mostly retains her family name of Mizuno. One early episode of the anime shows her answering the phone in her house by saying "Anderson residence." DiC may have intended this as her last name; she is reverted to Mizuno by Cloverway in the series' third season.[50] In an early DiC promotional tape that advertised Sailor Moon to television stations, Ami was given the name Blue.[51] DIC can refer to: Diploma of Imperial College Dubai International Capital DIC Entertainment In chemistry, Diisopropylcarbodiimide Disseminated intravascular coagulation This is a disambiguation page — a list of pages that otherwise might share the same title. ...

Reception and influence

The official Sailor Moon character popularity polls listed Ami Mizuno and Sailor Mercury as separate entities. In 1992, readers ranked them at seventh and fourth respectively, out of thirty eight choices.[52] One year later, now with fifty choices, Ami was the eighth most popular while Mercury was ninth.[53] In 1994, with fifty one choices, Ami was the fifteenth most popular character, and Mercury was sixteenth.[54] In early 1996, with fifty one choices, Ami was again the fifteenth most popular character, and Mercury was the nineteenth.[55] Image File history File links Flag_of_Sailor_Moon. ...

As a model Japanese student who works hard, does well in school, and is academically ambitious, Ami doesn't think twice about accepting the offer despite the loss this will mean of friends and Scout activities. On the day of departure, however, Ami changes her mind, unable and unwilling to sacrifice her membership in and commitment to the Sailor Scouts for the personal goal of her academic career. In an age when Japanese children are facing intense pressure to perform at school and scholastic achievement has become the singular determinant of future careers, the message of this episode is refreshing, perhaps even radical.”

There are differences, however: Sailor Mercury's attacks tend to serve a tactical purpose (by hiding her allies or by distracting/immobilizing/freezing her enemies) whereas Sailor Neptune's powers are more offensive (drawing power from the seas and oceans) and psychic-based.
Sailor Mercury sometimes calls it by this name in the English anime, but other times calls it "Mercury Ice Storm Blast." In the fourth season (SuperS), after she gains her Super form from Pegasus, it is referred to as Super Aqua Illusion.
In Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, the 'Dark Endymion' arc of the manga and anime is replaced by the appearance of an evil Dark Sailor Mercury.
