For just a second, I thought she was shooing butterflies out of her finger. XD
It's sooo beautiful. Sure, I'm willing to believe she can create butterflies. Why now? XD

the whole coloring is spot on ( especially in small format. dont really like the pixel brush )
but u screwed it with the proportions. I saw it like that because this could have easily fooled me into thinking it was a poster made by naoko takeushi but the proportions threw me off right then and there. great job though.

Woah, extremely pretty.

I bet in contrast, Sin's would be surrounded by black hell butterflies, sparkling in her indigo eyes.

That's pretty much the only way Naoko differentiated the two heroes differently. Our hero, Usagi, was born blue eyes while our anti-hero, Sin, was born with purple eyes.

Honestly, I always thought Sin was cuter, even though she would most likely to punch a hole through anyone allied with Neo Queen Serenity. She was like the Batman to Usagi's Superman....since Sin's parents were slaughtered right before her eyes by Diamond.

Naoko Takeuchi didn't create Sin, she was from the pixel game Sailor Moon: Another Story. She was far from a hero, she was another enemy that was being manipulated by a more powerful enemy. All her power came from the demon Queen, otherwise she'd be a normal human. Most of her background is unknown, how did you hear about Diamond killing her parents, I don't remember that being a part of the game but it's been a while since I've played.

Um, are you sure you want me to list how many things you said that were completely false? Its a long list D: You just admitted its been a while since you've played, while I created the deviantart contest for Another Story and manage the Another Story Wiki page.

I think I know a bit more then you do. For one thing, there is no such character as the demon Queen.

Wiki is not a reliable source at all, considering you manage it you should know that. I myself have changed many things on WIKI sites as a prank, it's a public website open to the public and can be changed. Try the OFFICIAL Sailor Moon webpage. The woman Aspu in my emulator is called Queen Aspu(-sama is the equivalent of Queen, King or a royal figure head in Japanese, -hime is the equivalent of princess. and she obviously ain't human.

And nothing I said was false. Naoko did not work on the game Sailor Moon: Another Story and it in no way has any connection to the manga or anime, it's an alternate tale solely made for the purpose of the game. Just as the Live-Action was a separate tale in and of itself.

The only works Naoko actually worked on were the Manga, the Anime, the Musicals and the Live-Action. She was not apart of the making of the game unlike how she was apart of the other Sailor Moon based series. where are you getting your facts?

I use wiki's for giving information, not learning from them. For that, I do my own legwork. Oh boy this is not going to be pleasant. D: You just admitted that you are completely close-minded about the things you believe in with no basis whatsoever, and you just admitted to also being an internet troll. This is going to be an abhorrently dumb conversation, talking to a dime-a-dozen troll and egoist is something I've done so many times over the internet, the only relief is how dumb they usually are. But honestly, I'd rather believe people were better then that.

For starters in basic logic, if you were even paying attention to the opening credits, it said that THE SCRIPT FOR ANOTHER STORY WAS WRITTEN AND SUBMITTED BY SOMEONE BY THE NAME OF NAOKO! I THINK THAT'S A PRETTY BIG HINT!

And that's just the stuff you pick up right away if you pay the least attention. There are some other stuff that you pick up if you pay attention to the smaller details, for example, who past Venus' love interest is being Kunzite, a detail left out of anime or manga, and was only given in an interview with Naoko later then 1995.

The game is a manga and anime crossover event, certain manga driven plotlines, like Dr. Tomoe being dead, converge with anime driven ones, like the Dark Moon Sisters being alive. It was created to help create clarity for a lot of plot points in the manga, as well as fix a lot of plot holes in the anime. Because boy did the anime team do a number on the plot. They even twisted Naoko's arm a little in the direction the manga went a little, like with Chibusa, who was a walking time paradox since it made "all futures lead to Crystal Tokyo" a thing. Remember how there was some kind of vague cataclysmic event that caused an ice age in the anime before Crystal Tokyo appeared. Yeah, it was the temporal comet filled with the power of Mercury described in the game. In the manga, it was just the silver crystal blooming when Usagi turned 25 or something.

Not that both weren't considered doomed timelines to begin with. Neo Queen Serenity still claimed ownership over the earth, and it lead to world-wide removal of negative emotions, and mass banishment to Nemesis to anyone who refused. Not to mention that the entire human race (outside of frozen Crystal Tokyo) were slaughtered by the Wiseman-corrupted Dark Moon group, by the death seed in the manga, and by bombardment from the skies in the anime. Marduk confirmed that all these people were still dead after the event, not that anyone could feel the slightest bit sad about it since they were purified. (Remember? Marduk's backstory was informing Apsu on how bad things were and Apsu agreeing, not the other way around. There was no brainwashing)

Why on earth would Apsu be a demon? Last I checked, demons did not have tuburculosis!!! Did you forget that's all she was doing for 4/5ths of the story? Coughing up blood, and showing concern instead of evil ploting? She was indeed corrupted by her own power near the end, but she was no demon. A cursed human sage to be sure, but nothing demonic. She AWAKENED their powers, like Nergal wanted. When Apsu's powers depleted, Sin's powers were still in full force, meaning the Oppositio were independent human beings with powers. Humans can be scary when pushed to their magical and spiritual limit. They only have one mortal life, unlike the Sailors. Sin's inner willpower resisted the infinite power of the Silver Crystal to be purified, and her inner demon was a 500 foot tall black hell dragon.

Why do you think Naoko portrayed the antagonists as the ones in the moral right? Even Usagi in her room admitted she had no solid arguement for Sin wanting to adjust the future so that humans didn't rely on the Moon Kingdom or the Silver Crystal. They had to brainwash the Oppositio temporally to gain victory, including Marduk who was proven to have never been brainwashed by Apsu in the first place. In fact, a scene in the past showed all 5 of them had their human personalities intact. Where Sin is depressed, Marduk is trying to pulls things together, Nabu doesn't think they can salvage things, Nergal is beating herself up for not being able to stop this, and Ishtar is trying to cheer Sin up. It even showed Sin pleading for the Oppositio and Sailors to work together after she developed a bond with Shingo, Usagi's brother. Heck, even APSU was willing to not become ruler at all and let the timeline fix itself for humans to rule, not the moon kingdom. Remember? They stole the Rose Crystal, meaning Tuxedo would never awaken as King Endymion, and the Cyrstal Tokyo timeline would never exist. They left and Apsu said she was fine that they didn't get the silver crystal. That's of course when the accidentally revived Prince Diamond fucked up things royally just to get in Sailor Moons pants. And yes, he did kill Sin's parents. She said that right after running him through in the back with her fist, but I guess you forgot that too.

Why do you think Naoko killed off the anime Black Moon Sisters in this game? Because in the manga, they died. In this, their genocidal asses were saved not by thier own accord, but because they were purified, taking their free will out of the equation. Naoko made the harsh reality clear, "reality does not work like that!" Heck in her story, she made sure the Oppositio win inevitably anyway, with Nergal in possession of the 7th Rainbow Crystal, meaning the power of the Silver Crystal will wane before Crystal Tokyo can appear. Quite clever, replacing it deep in the past with a fake that would appear to be the real one.

You seriouly need to grow up, I didn't even bother reading half of that. The only reason Naoko was in the Japanese version of the credits (The REAL credits if you paid attention) was because SHE CREATED SAILOR MOON! Not the game. If she wasn't given credit it would have been a copyright infingment. She did not create or even work on the game.

You seriously need to chill the fuck out. That game is based on the manga, does NOT MEAN SHE MADE IT! There are other sialor Moon Games you realize and some are based on the anime, are we to assume she made those too? No! She did not WORK on ANY of the Sailor Moon games, she only gave her permission for them to be worked on they have NOTHING TO DO WITH THE ORIGINAL SERIES!

Sweetheart, you insulted me first. Again I'm not reading what you wrote, but you are wrong. You obviously don't have any friends do you because you obviously don't know how to talk to people. Grow up. You can't admit to being wrong and if you believe anything wiki says you have more problems than what anyone can easily see should they decide to read the fucking book you wrote. although they don't have to read more then three sentences in to see you a little fucking bitch who can't stand to be wrong. Stop tlaking to me freak, go get help.
