Only in the anime do we see these next
three villains. Ail and
Ann are aliens born of
a tree called Makaiji.
They crash-land a pod on Earth, hoping to find energy to
keep the tree alive. They decide to take energy from
humans, since they do a lot of activities that would show
they are quite energetic. It's debatable whether they are
truly siblings or not since they were not born by normal
means. They enroll at Juuban and pretend to be siblings.
Ail has green skin, blue hair with two small
pink streaks, and blue eyes in his normal form. When he
is disguised as Ginga Seijuurou, he has brown hair, blue
eyes, and normal skin. Ail has a set of cards with images
printed on them of creatures called cardians that take energy from
people. He plays a strange flute, using it to summon the
cardians. Though he loves Ann, he ends up having a crush
on Usagi. This causes a lot of bitterness between them.
When Makaiju goes insane and kills Ann when she tries to
protect him, he realizes who he really loves. His name is
also written as "Earl."
Ann has green skin, pink hair with two small
blue streaks, and pink eyes in her normal form. When she is disguised at Ginga
Natsumi, she has auburn hair, almost reddish brown eyes,
and normal skin. Ann is the one that selects which
cardian Ail will summon. Though she loves Ail, she ends
up having a crush on Mamoru. This causes a lot of
bitterness between them. When Makaiju goes insane and
tries to attack Ail, she jumps in the way and is killed.
The Makaiju is a strange looking tree; enormous,
multi-colored, with cherry-blossom like petals. Strangely
enough, it is sentient. It bore many children, but they
ended up fighting amongst themselves and dying, so she
took Ann and Ail, then just children, and went out to
search for a better place. She needed the energy of love
to grow, and hatred poisoned her. When Ann and Ail
stopped getting along, she started to die. She eventually
went nuts and tried to attack Ail, but Ann jumped in the
way and was stabbed by one of the roots. Sailormoon
healed the Makaiju, and she was reborn as a sapling.
brings Ann back
to life in the end, and she and Ail
take the reborn Makaiju with
them out into the galaxy to raise it better this time.
"Ail and Ann" is a pun on "Alien."
Moon Family came from the future, but
they aren't all related. They lived on a world called
Nemesis, having been forced to leave Crystal Tokyo [I
think...]. They decided to attack Crystal Tokyo, but the
only thing this accomplished was killing a lot of people
while leaving Neo-Queen Serenity asleep
in her palace, protected by the Inner
Senshi. They went back in time to
corrupt certain parts of Tokyo so that Crystal Tokyo
would never exist. They were also looking for Chibi-Usa,
who had gone into the past to find the
ginzuishou. Wiseman was
basically their leader, though not an actual part of the
family. He, however, had a hidden agenda: to summon his
master, the Death Phantom,
using the family as his pawns. All members have an
upside-down black crescent moon on their foreheads, the
opposite of Serenity's. Droids are
the creatures used.
The mysterious Wiseman appears as a cloaked
figure with strange, multi-colored swirling hands and a
crystal ball. Underneath the cloak, he has the form of a
skeleton. He uses the family so he can get the Black
Crystal (what's the Japanese term?) into a powerful
enough state to bring the Death Phantom to Earth. He is
killed by the combined forces of Usagi and Chibi-Usa
[princesses in anime, Senshi in manga]
Rubeus created a UFO to journey into the past.
He's supposed to corrupt the different points in Tokyo,
and orders the Ayakashi Sisters around a lot and
manipulates them. He doesn't do that much work on his
own. In the anime, when the Ayakashi Sisters are healed,
he makes a last-ditch effort and kidnaps the Inner
Senshi, daring Sailormoon to come rescue them. This
backfires, and Esmeraude appears as his UFO burns,
taunting him and leaving him to die. I'm not sure about
the manga... He is named after the precious stone ruby, a
variety of the mineral corundum.
The youngest of the Ayakashi Sisters, Cooan is
very, very vain and doesn't take very well to
having her appearance mussed. In the anime, she has a
huge crush on Rubeus, and she is healed by Sailormoon
after Sailormars took pity on her for Rubeus's horrible
treatment of her. In the manga, she was killed by
Sailormoon. Her attack power is dark fire, similar to
Sailormars. She is named after the mineral kermesite;
cooan is the word for this mineral in Japanese. Her name
is also seen written as Koan (*cough cough* VKLL *cough*)
The second youngest of the Ayakashi Sisters,
Beruche is quite intelligent and acts more rational than
her sisters. In the anime, she is healed by Sailormoon
after she has a chess match with Ami and Rubeus tells her
she's worthless, so she tries to kill herself and the
newly-healed Cooan. In the manga, she was killed by
Sailormoon. Her attack power is dark water, similar to
Sailormercury. She is supposedly named after the mineral
The second eldest of the Ayakashi Sisters,
Calaveras is friendly but knows her duties. In the anime,
she is healed by Sailormoon after the fiasco involving
Petz getting a wand and Calaveras being jealous of not
having anything like that. In the manga, she was killed
by Sailormoon. Her attack is a whip, reminscent of
Sailorvenus's Love-me Chain. She is supposedly named
after the mineral calaverite. Her name is also shown
written as Karabaras.
The eldest of the Ayakashi Sisters, Petz is
haughty and power-hungry. In the anime, she was in love
with Safir, and she was healed by Sailormoon after she
went on a power-trip with a wand Rubeus gave her. In the
manga, she was killed by Sailormoon. Her attack power is
dark lightning, similar to Sailorjupiter. She is
supposedly named after the mineral petzite.
He is the other leader of the Black Moon Family.
He is cold and withdrawn from the others, and he has a
crush on Neo-Queen Serenity, which eventually leads to
liking Sailormoon as well. He has a third eye in the
center of his forehead where his black moon normally
appears, and he can use it to hypnotize people. In the
anime, Wiseman killed him. In the manga, Sailormoon and
Tuxedo Kamen seem to almost accidentally kill him. He is
named after the gemstone diamond. His name is also seen
written as Demand, Demando, Dimand, Diamond...
The younger brother of Dimando, Safir doesn't
hold as much authority. He makes crystal figures for
Esmeraude to use. In the anime, Wiseman killed him for
figuring out his plans. I don't know about the manga...
He is named after the gemstone sapphire, a non-red
variety of the mineral corundum. His name is also seen
written as Safir, Saffiru, Saffire, Sapphir...
Esmeraude doesn't seem to be a relative of any
of the other members of the Black Moon Family. She is
quite vain and self-assured, and has a secret crush on
Dimando. She is supposed to corrupt the areas of Tokyo,
and uses crystal figures to do so. In the anime, she is
turned into a dragon by Wiseman and dies. As for the
manga, uhhh... I don't think she has any sort of attack,
anyone know? She is named after the gemstone emerald.
Wiseman kidnapped Chibi-Usa, made her think her
parents never loved her, and aged her into the evil,
grown-up Black Lady. Black Lady is loyal to the Black
Moon Family, showing respect for Dimando but a bit of
disregard to Safir. In the anime, she starts having
visions and realizes she isn't alone, and turns good
again. In the manga, Sailorpluto sacrificized herself to
stop Dimando by stopping time, and the death of her
friend jarred her out of it and made her good again.
Kiraru and Akiraru
They only appear in the manga. They show up
talking to Dimando, and they show up when the Senshi go
into the future, attack the Senshi... Um, anyone know
anything else about them?
Death Phantom is a strange entity that Wiseman
serves. He is killed by the combined forces of Usagi and
Chibi-Usa [queen and princess in anime, Senshi in manga].
He's also an alter self of Chaos. I don't know anything
else about him.
anime, the Ayakashi Sisters were
just turned evil, and after they are healed, they run a
cosmetics store together and live together as normal
Note: If I
say "supposedly" in regards to a name, I
haven't confirmed that the mineral exists.
