Melancholy Makoto

official series art

Many moons ago (if you’ll pardon the pun), and I mean many moons, back when I was a fledgling anime fan and the internet was a very different place full of excited fans and character shrines and no commercialism, one of my favorite pastimes was looking for image gallery sites to find as much Sailor Moon artwork as I could. And maybe even some 1024×768 wallpapers, too! I still have them all saved, too, having migrated to each new computer of mine since those early days.

Anyway, enough reminiscing… though I still often long for those days when the internet was a much more innocent place. Back in the early days of my Sailor Moon fandom, Makoto/Sailor Jupiter was my favorite character. A small, cropped version of this image still lives in that old Sailor Moon image folder of mine, but now here is the full piece of artwork, which has always been one of my favorites of Makoto. Her expression always got to me, since she seems a bit sad and in need of some cheering up.
