About Makoto Kino (Sailor Jupiter)
Makoto Kino, better known as Sailor Jupiter, is a fictional character in the Sailor Moon manga series created by Naoko Takeuchi. She is a member of the Sailor Soldiers, female supernatural fighters who protect the Solar System from evil. Sailor Jupiter was the fifth and last Senshi discovered by the moon cats in 20th-Century Tokyo. Her civilian identity was Makoto Kino, or Lita in the English dub.
She referred to herself as the “Soldier of Thunder and Courage” and the “Soldier of Protection”, under the guardianship of the “Planet of Thunder”, and was the strongest of the Inner Senshi in terms of physical strength, as well as the tallest among them.
That inner tenderness makes Makoto one of the most likable characters in the series so far, but it also makes her vulnerable. This vulnerability is quickly exploited by Nephrite, who’s latest scheme to gather human energy involves using a “ghost bride” to seduce men and zap their strength. These men in turn can extract energy from female victims, which is exactly what happens when Usagi’s friend Furu (whom Usagi always addresses as “Onii-chan”) falls pray to the ghost bride and attempts to seduce Makoto.
Why Makoto? As it turns out, she has a crush on Furu because he reminds her of the boy she loved back at her old school. Of course, she has no idea Furu is possessed, and almost falls for Nephrite’s evil scheme until Sailor Moon and the other Guardians show up and confront him.
