However, she also has a slightly goofier and less aloof side.

She likes Balgo Park’s dog Osushi and has treats with her to feed him. She likes Japanese culture a lot, to the point of adopting Noel as her first name because it’s a girl’s first name in Japan, and using the theme song from the Dragon Ball anime as her cell phone ringtone.

22. Minako Aino / Sailor Venus

Franchise: Sailor Moon

Minako Aino, aka Sailor Venus or Sailor V, is one of the characters in the anime and manga series Sailor Moon as well as its prequel, Codename: Sailor V. She is a high school student who has the power to transform into a Sailor Senshi called “Sailor Venus”, one of the Sailor Senshi of the Solar System, who have protected the protagonist Sailor Moon since the time of the Moon Kingdom.

When Minako Aino meets Usagi Tsukino, who is dedicated to fighting evil as the eponymous heroine of Sailor Moon, Minako herself has already been serving as another mysterious vigilante as well, under the alias “Sailor V”. V joins Sailor Moon’s team, however, she adopts the battle name “Sailor Venus”.

As the series progresses, it is discovered that the reason Minako can transform in this way is because she is actually the reincarnation of Sailor Venus, a Sailor Senshi-type warrior who hailed from the planet Venus and protected the princess of an ancient kingdom called the Silver Millennium in her past life.

On the other hand, while in the manga and anime she is only portrayed as a teenager who dreams of becoming a famous singer, in the live-action series version, in contrast, her character was redesigned to already be (from the beginning) a young celebrity. Minako’s character is first introduced in the prequel manga Codename: Sailor V, where she acts as the protagonist.

In this story, Minako’s origins as “Sailor V” and her first adventures with her inseparable companion, the cat Artemis, are told. Sailor V’s plot is generally consistent with the more recent Sailor Moon series but generally, the two stories are considered separately.

Conan will always manage to get away with it, promising her that Shinichi will come back to her someday.

Although she is the female co-star, she has never had a direct confrontation with the Black Organization, the main antagonist of the series, also due to the fact that Conan hides the truth and the existence of the organization from her so as not to involve her and expose her to danger. During the case of the Halloween party, she saves Ai Haibara from Vermouth, acting as a shield for her, but not seeing the woman in her face and therefore not associating her with Sharon Vineyard.
