Sailor Neptune, Michiru Kaioh
Michiru Kaioh one of the four " Outer Senshi ". Introduced in the show's third
series along with her partner, Haruka Tenoh, Michiru is portrayed as a very polite, calm (sometimes coldly so) character in
the series. She dislikes being patronized even if it would hurt her feelings, and subsequently will not indulge people. This
is alluded to in her backstory, explaining that she was congenial but generally not social. Her known skills include the violin,
swimming, and painting; she is the senshi most associated with the arts. Michiru's primary relationship is with Haruka the
two are in a lesbian relationship although in the English Dub they are known as " cousins ". She is one of the senshi who
has psychic powers naturally, telling her when danger is near. She seems to be a character with a very deep understanding
of things, sometimes even surpassing the other Outer Senshi due to her unnaturally high psychic endowments. Michiru's wavy
aqua hair and deep, sea-blue eyes are, without any doubt, intended to evoke images of her element. Michiru is also graceful
and delicate, with an aura of sophistication. She is clearly intelligent, but this usually manifests itself through art and
music. Usagi (to whom this observation is especially relevant) once commented that Michiru was the ideal example of a princess.
Michiru has some similarities with Ami. They both enjoy swimming, are a Senshi relating to water, and they do not have classes
that they don't like. She uses ocean-based attacks (not just water), and carries the Deep Aqua Mirror, which is one of three
Talismans carried by the Outer Senshi. She takes a black-and-white approach to her role as a soldier,
one shared by Sailor Uranus, who is virtually always at her side. Her senshi uniform is sea-green and deep blue, and her shoes
resemble heeled ballet slippers. Her gloves extend only to mid-forearm.
