Future Reunion Act 5 cover by Mangaka-chan
Future Reunion Act 5 cover
Juno, as third eldest of the Sailor Quartet, gave me quite a bit of a hard time when it came to creating power/attributes for her. Her name sake, the Roman goddess of women and marriage (and by extension, her Greek counterpart, Hera), is far more well known for her jealousy towards her husband's lovers than any specific combat abilities. Even as one of the Amazon Quartet, JunJun was an acrobat, which is not a skill that can be easily turned into a special magic attack. So, to stick to me circus-inspired powers for the Quartet, I decided Juno will use throwing knives as her primary weapon even though in the manga VesVes is shown being the one to throw knives. Her acrobatic skills also make her very agile, quick, and stealthy, making her great at sneak attacks and clandestine surveillance.

Having said all that, you're probably wondering why I didn't give her lightening based powers, since Juno/Hera is the wife of Jupiter/Zeus. The thing is, I don't like the idea of the Quartet having the same kinds of powers and attributes as the Inner Senshi. It takes away from their individuality, and it also ignores their powers from their Dean Moon Circus days. So, even though it's a little more work, I think it's more fun for Juno to throw knives than to throw lightening. I did however, make a subtle nod to the goddess Juno. The design and color of the throwing knives Juno uses is modeled after the peacock's tail feather, as the peacock is associates with Juno/Hera. :)

Like the previous chapters, I'm also planning to make a hard copy edition of Act 5. I'll make a post for it once it's ready for purchase. Textless version of the cover will be posted in a few days.

Even though this wasn't shown in the manga, I'd imagine Chibi Usa also inherited Mamoru's psychometry power. We don't get to see many demonstrations of Mamoru's psychometry powers but one that jumps to mind is the ability to see glimpses of a person's past through touch. This was demonstrated in the Black Moon arc when Mamoru touched Chibi Usa's hand shortly after she fell from the sky and he saw a vision of Crystal Tokyo.

I don't know how often I'll show her using this power in the future, but I think her psychometry would be very potent with people she's deeply connected to, including Helios. The reason for this is because Chibi Usa is not only the rightful heir to the throne of the Silver Millennium, she's also heir to the Golden Kingdom. That means Helios is technically also her guardian priest, much like he was with Prince Endymion. From what the manga tells us, Helios and Endymion’s hearts and souls are linked, though the latter may not be consciously aware of that connection until the Dream arc. If we assume that the rightful heir of the Golden Kingdom will become linked heart and soul to Helios as part of their ascension to the throne, then Chibi Usa would share the same link that Helios shared with her father.

However, because they’ve met in the past and have a connection forged during the fight against Nehellenia, their bond is even deeper and stronger than the bond between Helios and Endymion, thus allowing them to easily share thoughts, feelings, and memories with one another. I’d imagine because their connection is so strong, the flashback Chibi Usa experienced in the second page is especially visceral I’m just twisting that knife now, aren’t I?

I was wondering your thoughts on it becoming an audio drama?

I think that would be fantastic! But I think Luna Sphere's approval is first and foremost, since she's the fan author.
