Mirai Arashi was born June 1 to Koji and Amanda Arashi. Her mother, Amanda, was originally from the state of Minnesota in the United States and had met her father when he was attending college abroad. Growing up in the city of Yokohama, Mirai lived in a very loving home, and though not without personal difficulties in self esteem, she was always kind to anyone who needed help. While she tended to not socialize easily, she made one friend in the form of Jun Adachi, whose parents owned a local book store. They bonded over their difficulties in making friends (Mirai due to issues of self-worth and Jun for her intelligence and snarky nature). Mirai would eventually gain another friend in the form of Yasu Moto, an older teenager who saved the young girl after she was nearly hit by a car. Mirai would look up to the girl as being the sort of person she wished she was, rather then the timid life she lived. As middle school approached, Mirai prepared for her life to continue as it was, with the same struggles and worries--an ordinary life.
Becoming a Sailor Senshi
One day while walking down the street, Mirai spotted a small cat trapped in the middle of the road. Against all reason and realizing how scared it was, Mirai rushed into the road, narrowly avoiding a car, and picked up the animal. Before she could react, the cat ran off, though Mirai was simply happy to see that it was safe. That evening, Mirai found herself visited in her dreams by a mysterious figure who explained that it was the queen of the planet Quinox, a far distant planet in the solar system. She told the confused girl that she had been chosen to be her champion, a being she referred to as a sailor senshi.
Confused, Mirai asked the being why her, and the Queen said she had been watching her for awhile and had seen her gentle soul, and knew that she was someone she could trust. When pressed for questions, the monarch merely told her that someone would be coming to guide her in this endeavor. The next day, coming home, she found herself face to face with the small cat she had rescued, who, much to her surprise, began speaking. The cat explained that her name was Shina and that she was to be Mirai's guardian as a senshi and would help her learn her powers. Mirai quickly realized that Shina was like her, very nervous about the role and the two quickly bonded as friends.
Soon, the day of her ascension came and much to her surprise, she found herself not the only one to become a senshi, though the only one who had not been a senshi beforehand. After the ceremony, Mirai slowly began to get to know her colleagues, though still very nervous. While she had to go back home to Yokohama, she promised to return whenever she was needed.
Shin Sailor Q
The Yokohama Arc: Episodes 1-26
While walking home one day, Mirai witnessed a strange creature attacking a nearby shrine. Shocked, the girl transformed, and though she was able to defeat the creature, she was unable to prevent it from stealing an object. After a few weeks of battling these monsters, she found herself face to face with their supposed master, a man calling himself Jack. The being had come to claim an object known as a "Seal" and while she was able to defeat the man, the seal itself was soon stolen by another strange man. This man, named King, soon went after a second seal, with the help of Homuncli, strange creatures created by the man's master. Eventually, the two battled at Yokohama stadium, ending in King's death. This time, however, Mirai is able to get her hand on the last seal.
Not long after this, Mirai gained a new schoolmate in the form of Himeko Yamashiro, a rather snobby and cold girl. However, Mirai soon began to befriend her, the girl warming up to her in the process. In the meantime, Shina did some research with the help of Freya and learned that the seals were part of an ancient magical ritual to bless the area where the city was built; the seal's points now represented by the three towers of Yokohama. At the same time, Mirai found herself targeted as Sailor Quinox by a new enemy known as Queen, who was seeking the last seal, though not aware that she had it.
Eventually, the school itself was attacked, with Himeko revealing herself to be Queen, much to Mirai's shock and horror. The girl stripped Mirai of the final seal, but as she was about to teleport away, Mirai grabbed her, following her to her lair. There the mastermind behind this all, an ancient magic user known as Magnus, received the prize. His plans were seemingly interrupted by the appearance of Sailors Nix and Nereid, who took the object away from him. However, this proved to be useless, as Magnus violently took the orb giving life to Queen (who was revealed to be a homunculus), killing her in the process. Using this orb, in conjunction with the others (having taken them from the bodies of those Mirai had defeated) as well as the seals, Magnus completed the ritual, sealing Yokohama in a dark dome.
While Nix and Nereid ran into the battle, Mirai found herself speaking to the Queen of Quinox (another form of Matsumi), who told her to believe in herself and face her enemy for the sake of everyone she cared about. Gaining new courage, Mirai joined the other senshi in taking down each of the three towers, which were being used to link to a huge tower in the middle of the city. Stopping the spread of the dome, the senshi then faced Magnus, now in a god-like form, who revealed his plan to try to guide the world into a new "golden age." However, no matter how much Mirai tried to convince him otherwise, Magnus was obsessed with making this wish come true. Remembering the words of her teacher, Mirai was able to tap into her own powers (with help form the other senshi) to fight back, destroying the mad alchemist once and for all. However, while they were able to defeat the enemy, Mirai was grief stricken to find that Himeko was still dead. Her pleas for help were soon answered, when the Queen of Quinox appeared and using her powers, restored the girl to life as well as restoring Yokohama to what it once was. With the conflict truly ended, Mirai returned home to rest.
Shin Sailor Q The Movie 1: Another World
While late and running to school one day, Mirai suddenly has a vision of a hooded girl, begging for help. Without warning, Mirai finds herself transported to a strange world. After saving a young boy from a man in dark armor, she herself is saved by a woman named Yara, who looks exactly like Yasu Moto. Taken to a nearby fort and explaining herself, Mirai learns that she is on the world of "Noi." Upon Meeting High Chancellor Harto, she learns at Noi is being threatened by the forces of a mysterious foe only known as The Phantos, who controls a force of warriors called sentinels and has kidnapped the young priestess, a ward of the High Queen.
Realizing that Mirai has been summoned to their world for perhaps this reason, Harto asks Mirai to go and rescue the girl. However, before she can make a decision, the fort is suddenly attacked by the sentinels. Though she transforms, much to everyone's surprise, she is unable to defend the area and for her sake, Yara quickly takes the girl away, deciding that they must go and speak to the High Priestess for more information.
After riding to a temple on the edge of a mountain, Shin Sailor Q learns from the priestess, who looks exactly like Freya, that Mirai was summoned to Noi by the priestess herself; further, the villains are after the Stargem, a powerful jewel which the young priestess was guarding when she was attacked. Yara asks to speak to the priestess in private, to which she agrees. Curious, Quinox listens in and learns that Yara does not believe Quinox can help them, as she seems too weak. Yara wishes to take on the task herself, mentioning that she had once been told she was meant for something special. The priestess rebuffs her, instead telling her that she can sense a great deal of power within in the young girl. Quinox feels ashamed, but quickly hides it as Yara and the High Priestess return. She tells Yara and Quinox that the young priestess is being held in the Dark Citadel, near the edge of a shadowy lake. She then tells Quinox to trust in herself and her abilities before bidding them farewell.
Meanwhile, The Phantos tells his forces to prepare for the intruders which are sure to come. Moving away, he goes to the hooded girl who is being kept in a cell and demands that she tell them where the gem is. She remains silent, and The Phantos tells her it does not matter, for no one is coming to save her.
Heading into a swampy area, Quinox and Yara are soon confronted by two warriors for hire, named Masa and Sama, who look just like Masaki and Saki. They were being paid by The Phantos to stop them. However, during the battle, sentinels attack, causing the two warriors to switch sides and help them defeat the sentinals. Wanting revenge and in a bit of awe over the fact that Mirai is from another world, they agree to help them get to the citadel. Yara, however, is unhappy with this, feeling over-burdened with the new members of the group and their adoration of the young Quinox.
The Phantos is told of the two warriors switching sides, but is not worried as it explains that "they have already won."
Soon arriving at the edge of the lake, the four find a boat and start to cross. During the ride, Quinox admits to Yara that she is right and that she isn't as strong as the High Priestess makes her sound, and that she just wants to go home. However, Masa disagrees with the girl and tells her that the fact that she already made it this far must show that she has some special quality that she herself does not realize.
Reaching the Dark Citedel, the four manage to sneak in. After getting through several traps and nearly being caught twice, they finally find the cell where the young hooded priestess is. However, before they can get out with her, sentinels appear and Yara, much to the other's shock, joins their side. Taken to The Phantos, the figure reveals himself to be Harto, who had felt unappreciated by the High Queen and desired power. Yara also is revealed to have always been on his side, unhappy with her own treatment and how even though she had been told she was special, nothing came from it. She then reveals that she had the Stargem herself, which the young priestess had foolishly given to her, believing her to be trustworthy, something which devastates the priestess.
Taking the Stargem from Yara, Harto transforms into a powerful armored form and announces he will kill the priestess, which Yara did not agree to and he mocks her for. Masa and Sama try to fight Harto, but are beaten back, as is Yara when she tries to attack. Quinox also is blasted back by a burst of power. Turning to destroy the young priestess once and for all, Phantos is unaware as Quinox grabs a small rock and throws it at the Stargem on his chest, dislodging it. Diving for it, Quinox manages to grab it before Phantos, transforming into "Holy Sailor Quinox" in the process. Phantos in his rage attacks Quinox and at first seems to succeed, but Quinox, wanting to protect everyone there, manages to fight back and finally defeats Phantos, who dissolves in the process. The power returns to the Stargem, and the group quickly escapes from the Dark Citadel amid its collapse. Yara tries to apologize to Mirai, but Mirai understands how she felt and is just glad that she's alright.
At high queen's castle, Mirai is somewhat upset since she isn't sure she'll be able to return home. Masa and Sama try to cheer her up and Yara offers her own support, helping Mirai feel a bit better. Entering the room, Mirai meets High Queen Tamsu, who looks exactly like Matsumi Kaze/Queen of Quinox. The Queen gives her thanks and promises rewards to Masa and Sama, while forgiving Yara for her mistakes. She then asks Mirai what she wishes, to which the girl asks only to be returned home, which the Queen says she can do. Saying their farewells, Mirai finds herself face to face with the young priestess, who then reveals herself to be a double for Mirai herself, and thanks the girl for saving her. The Queen then uses the power of the Stargem to send Mirai back to her own world.
Finding herself in Yokohama, Mirai runs into Jun and Chiyo, who explain school was cancelled due to a power problem. Deciding to get some lunch, the two girls walk off, getting into a slight argument over where to go. Mirai pauses for a moment, remembering the adventure she just had before following after them.
Dream Emperor Arc: Episodes 27-32
One day after school, Mirai passes by an old ruined shrine. Decided to check it out, she finds herself strangly drawn to a torn up image of a strange figure on the wall. Slightly creeped out, she quickly leaves but thinks she hears what sounds like a weird song following her, though it fades quickly.
The next day, she hears news of one of her classmates having vanished, something which worries her friends, who decides to check out the problem, though Mirai is unsure. Arriving at the apartment, they find the building strangly quiet. For a moment, Mirai thinks she hears the song again, but is suddenly interrputed by the arrival of a fox like creature which attacks them. Mirai manages to seperate from the others and transforms, but finds herself unable to defeat the being, which escapes. Mirai manages to get the girls away from the building. The next day, Mirai goes to revisit it, but finds that the building itself is gone.
Elsewhere, the fox like creature reports to a being known as the Dream Emperor, that a Sailor Senshi has appeared. The Dream Emperor is pleased and tells the fox to accelerate their plans.
Mirai starts to become worried, as none of her friends seem to remember the building or their friend being there. As the days run by, Mirai starts to notice similar things happen, with the fox appearing in a location and then the location vanishing, as well as a strange red spot slowly growing in the sky. Finally, one day, the fox appears at her school and though Mirai tries to stop it, the entire school as well as her friends vanish. However, when the fox tries to harm her directly, it is suddenly disintegrated by the Dream Emperor himself, who claims the responablity of destroying Mirai himself. Though Mirai tries to fight back, she finds herself overpowered by the being, who leaves her for dead and retreats to a large temple in the middle of the city.
Struggling to her feet, Mirai is startled by the remains of The Fox, who explains everything: Mirai is actually asleep, trapped in a dream dimension created by the Emperor, who seeks vengence against the Sailor Senshi for the death of his older sister, Queen Badiane. She has in fact only been asleep for a day but that his plan will cause the entire world to fall into the dimension if not stopped, after these final words, the remains of the being finally disintigrating. Realizing she needs to stop him, Mirai hurries to the temple.
At the temple, the Emperor is already beginning to gather the nessicary energies to expand the Vortex, causing many of the people in Yokohama to fall asleep. Quinox begs the Emperor to stop this, but he tells her that he will not listen to a murderer and attacks her directly. Though she tries to protect herself, she is unable to do so and the Emperor casts her into a deeper dream like state, a form of limbo to trap her forever.
Seemenly awakening, Mirai finds herself in a grey lifeless landscape. However a voice calls out to her and tells her not to despair, telling of her great capacity for good and reminding her that a dream is simply the tool of the one dreaming it. With these words in her heart, Mirai reawakens within the dream.
The Dream Emperor is shocked by this turn of events and attempts to destroy her but finds that since she now controls the dream she is in, he cannot harm her. Instead, she apologizes for what happened and forgives him for his actions, removing his helmet and revealing him to be a very young boy, Prince Badri. Badri reveals that he hated his sister, who always abused him, but since she was the only family he had, felt that he had to avenge her. Quinox promises to him that she will be there for him and will visit him again whenever he likes in the dream world. With these words, Badri ends the vortex, reawaking the people of Yokohama, as well as Mirai herself, much to the relief of Shina, who had stayed by her side the entire time.
Meanwhile, a mysterious woman arrives in the city, her intentions unknown....
Alchemist Arc: Episodes 33-50 (END)
Recovering from the events of the Dream Emperor incident, Mirai slowly tries to return to normal life. However, one day while walking through the city with Himeko and Shina, who is resting on her shoulders, the two become aware of a strange woman dressed in dark clothes and wearing a hood. Deciding to follow her as Shina has a bad feeling about the woman, they witness her attack a nearby building. Transforming into Neo Sailor Quinox, the senshi is able to defeat the creature but finds it strangely familer somehow.
Over the next few days, Quinox fights several creatures, before facing apperent master, a woman named Oberon. Though she is able to defeat the individual, she is badly injured in the process and is too weak to put up a better fight when a new series of creatures appear, this time lead by another figure named Titara. While she tries to recover, she learns from Shina that the targets make up the center points of something called ley-lines or areas of highly concentrated magic on which Yokohama was built. If these areas are destroyed, it will cause the entire city of vanish into magical vortex. After recovering enough, Quinox is able to defeat Titara though she learns from her that a greater evil is at play.
When another creature attacks, Neo Sailor Quinox is able to defeat it though unknown to her it's due to the help of other heroes. She then realizes soon after that Himeko had vanished. Himeko for her part finds herself kidnapped by the true mastermind of the plot, a woman who simply calls herself Onna (woman). Onna reveals the truth: that Onna is the last and "perfect" homunuculas created by Magnus before his death. She then blackmails Himeko into helping her plans in destroying the city in revenge against her master's death by theatening to kill Mirai and her friends.
Mirai is shocked when Himeko reappears, once again in the form of Queen and tells her that her becoming her friend was simply a ruse to gain her trust before destroying her. While Quinox is able to defeat her, the entire situation leaves her shaken and depressed and with the help of Prince Badri, she contacts the Queen of Quinox, giving up her transformation phone and her role as Neo Sailor Quinox. Shina for her part decides to try and investigate, soon learning that a final attack is being planned.
Confused and hurt, Mirai decides to take a walk in a park. There she befriends a mysterious woman who offers her some advice and tells her to trust in Himeko, as she probably is doing such actions for another reason. Having made up her mind to try and save Himeko, Mirai is surprised when the woman vanishes when she's not looking, leaving behind the Quinox Phone.
Not long after, Himeko (as Queen) stages a final attack on the last ley-line point standing. Before she can do so, however, Shin Sailor Quinox arrives with Shina and begs her to not give up on their friendship. Realizing that Mirai can fully defend herself, Himeko tries to stop the attack, only for Onna to appear and destroy the last point, knocking Himeko out in the process. With the last line demolished, the entire city of Yokohama vanishes into another dimension.
In the other dimension, Neo Sailor Quinox finds the energy has almost completely knocked out everyone in the city except for herself and Shina. Noticing a large tower like the one Magnus constructed, the two make their way there, only to find Onna, now absorbing the raw power of the magic vortex in the hopes of completely destroying the city once and for all. Quinox pleas with her to stop this but Onna is too consumed by revenge to listen. When she tries to make one last attempt to get through to her, Onna fires a magic bolt straight at the young senshi. Instead, Shina transforms into her human form and manages to block the attack with her own power briefly, only to be knocked out by the recoil. Quinox is horrified, while Onna can only gloat at her attempt, when suddenly the ground cracks around the woman and dark energy hands grab the woman, pulling her screaming under the ground, much to Quinox's horror. The earth erupts as a dark shape rises from it, taking the form of Magnus, who reveals that he had manipulated events so that Onna would resurrect him with the full powers of Yokohama's magical potential. The creature then reveals his plan to finish what he started and become a god and decides to start by destroying Neo Sailor Quinox! Funneling power through itself, it fires on the senshi who tries to block using the Rhapsody Lyre. However, the power is too great and Quinox finds herself beginning to be overwhelmed by it. Just as it seems she's about to die, Quinox remembers all those who helped her through and the words the mysterious woman gave her to not give up on anyone. Given new courage, the senshi funnels as much of her power through the Rhapsody Lyre as she can and fires back at the creature, who tries to defend himself but is soon consumed by the energy, destroying him for good. On cue, Yokohama is flung back into the regular universe, with Himeko and Shina (back to the form of a cat) waking up, healed once more.
Later that day, Mirai is walking home, thinking about everything that had happened, when a voice calls out to her. She finds herself face to face with the woman from before in the park. The woman introduces herself as Matsumi Kaze and reveals herself not only to be the Queen of Quinox but also the previous Sailor Quinox from before Mirai. She tells Mirai how proud she is of her and apologizes for not showing herself before but she now knows that she is someone who deserves answers. She tells the girl that she will always be there for her and vanishes before her eyes. With a new courage and belief in herself, Mirai returns home to face whatever comes the next day.
Shin Sailor Q the Movie 2: Phantom Sea Bell
Having had a rough time after the events concering Onna, Mirai, Himeko and Shina are given the opportunity to relax at a private beach owned by Matsumi Kaze aka the original Sailor Quinox. Arriving, the girls immediately start to play in the water, enjoying themselves completely. However, in the middle of this, Mirai suddenly hears what seems to be the sound of a bell and looking around, notices a strange girl dressed in white staring out at the ocean. Walking over to talk to her, only for the girl to look to her, tears in her eyes and tell her that she's sorry. All of a sudden, the water bursts upwards as a large creature forms out of the sea rushing towards the girl. Mirai tackles her away, while Himeko and Shina run over to try and help. The girl simply cries that she's sorry as the monster tries to follow after her. Transforming into Neo Sailor Quinox, Mirai tries to blast the creature, but it simply absorbs the energy. Before the girls can react, the thing swollows them up, retreating back into the water.
Waking up, they find themselves in a strange room covered in stairs and doors. Realizing that they're under the sea somehow, the three suddenly hear the sound of the bell again. Following the sound, they finally find their way through a door which leads to a long hallway. However, almost as soon as they do, a strange figure in ragged robes and a mask appears and proclaims that they cannot escape the truth. The door behind them suddenly shut and water begins to rush in. Despite their attempts to hold on to each other, they're each washed away, seperate from each other.
Coming to in another room, Neo Sailor Quinox finds the entrance is far above her head. Panicking and worried about her friends, she desprently tries to crawl to the top but keeps falling back down. Not wanting to give up, she suddenly feels a hand grabs hers and pull her up. Looking over, she spots the girl in the white dress, who is crying and runs off, apologzing for what she did. Not wanting to lose her, Quinox chases after the girl into the darkness. Losing her once again, Neo Salior Quinox instead finds a large wall with a diagram, which seems to depict a kingdom with a royal family and then it's destruction. Hearing the bell once again, the wall suddenly splits open, revealing a larger room on the other side.
In the room, she discovers Shina and Himeko trapped in orbs of light by the ragged figure, the bell toiling once more. The figure proclaims that when the bell toils it's last note, then they will be forever trapped here in this place. Quinox tries to protest but the figure blasts her with the same energy, which consumes her. She suddenly then finds herself in another place with Himeko and Shina both of which are staring at visions in front of them. Himeko is watching scenes of her doing terrible things as Queen, while Shina is remembering an incident where she failed to protect her fellow acolytes during the fall of Quinox. Turning, Mirai now sees a moment when she told a lie which got a friend of her's in trouble, a guilt she kept all this time ago. She is then told this is a place of punishment for eternity. Turning, she spots the little girl, who apologizes and keeps repeating how it's all her fault. Mirai then sees a vision of the little girl in the middle of an island kingdom. The girl spots a bell tower and running up it, rings the bell, when all of a sudden the earth shakes and cracks, a large wave heading towards her as she calls out to her papa and mama. She then cries to Mirai that if she hadn't rung the bell none of this would have happened, but Mirai refuses to belive it. Just then the water creature reappears and the ragged figure proclaims their guilt. Neo Sailor Quinox tries to fight back as the creature attempts to attack the girl but finds it too difficult to handle the monster made of liquid. All the while she tells the girl not to give into her guilt, to not let it take over and that there had to be more to this then just that. Quinox knows what it means to feel guilty and she knows what she did was wrong but that she knows that she can't let it eat her away. At that moment, her lyre glows as a new song starts to play on it. Grabbing the instrument, Quinox shouts that it isn't who she is and unleashes an attack which bursts the water creature apart.
Quinox and the girl find themselves once more in the middle of the vision but this time earlier in the day, where the girl overheard her father talking to a few others, appertly about how it was clear that an earthquake was going to happen that tday and that there was little they could do to stop it. The ragged figure then steps forward and states that the girl hadn't understood it at the time and had let herself think the bell was behind it, though it was just an ordinary object. The girl's guilt had been so powerful that she had bound his spirit as well to this plain but now they could both be free. As Quinox watches, the figure transforms into the king, who embraces his daughter. He then apologizes for everything that had happened but thanks the senshi for what she had done. A bright light fills the area and the two ascend before Quinox's eyes as everything seems to fade away.
Coming to, Mirai finds herself once more on the beach. She spots Himeko and Shina and quickly wakes them. The two are very confused on what happened and Mirai figures that what they did was to help out someone. As they look out onto the ocean, the three hear the sound of a bell ring out across the waves.
Shin Sailor Q X
Magna Arc: Episodes 51-64
One night about a year after the events of the Alchemist, a shooting star storm fills the night sky, the comets falling to Earth. In Yokohama, Mirai and Shina watch the display. Mirai is awe of the sight but Shina is frightened, feeling something is wrong with the comets and that they bring something evil with them. A week later, Mirai is walking to school when she nearly bumps into a running teenage girl. She doesn't think much of it as the topic of the comets come up in class, with Jun telling her and Himeko that one apperently crashed close by. Arriving at the site, they find it closely guarded but Jun decides to get closer anyway. At that moment, the stone splits open and a small object latches itself onto Jun, transforming her into a monster which immeidatly declairs that it is searching for someone. Attacking the people around it, the monster then tries to attack Mirai, but Himeko jumps in the way, taking the blow. Transforming, Quinox finds the monster far more powerful then any she has fought but after a time, manages to defeat it without hurting her friend, restoring her to normal in the process. As the weeks go by, more and more incidents occur, as ordinary people seem to transform into creatures, apparently seeking out an unknown person.
The man behind these attacks eventually decides to target a location where he is certain the person he is looking for will be: a school. Disguising himself as a teacher's aide, he changes a student into a Probe with the ability to control others through touch. Soon almost everyone is under it's power outside of Mirai and Himeko are under it's power and try to attack them. Mirai is forced to transform and after a short battle defeats the Probe, releasing everyone from it's power. While Himeko makes sure the students and teachers are alright, Quinox is able to track down the controller to the top of the school roof. He introduces himself as Magna and rather then give away any other information, throws himself from the top of the building, shattering on the ground and revealing himself to be a machine. Meanwhile, in a high tech facility, another man watches as the signal from his teammate vanishes and realizes he has been defeated. Looking over a large pillar like structure, he decides that he will step in to take over.
Dornus Arc: Episodes 65-70
Returning home, Mirai learns from her parents that a new exchange student is going to start living with them, introducing her to Riku Watanabe. Mirai almost immediately recognizes her as the girl she had bumped into before and remembering how Himeko originally posed as a student when they first met, Mirai chooses to confront her privately. Riku admits that she is lying and that she is in fact running away from people who want to do harm to her. While Mirai is unsure, she agrees to help her out and hide her. Meanwhile, Dornus starts to try and track down his target, sending drones out to try and seek the individual his comrade had failed to find. This time, however, he observes the pattern of defeats and figures out that Mirai is the common thread. During a walk back from school with Riku and Himeko, Dornus attacks them directly, this time infecting Mirai herself with a Drone, transforming her into Quinoxius. Himeko and Riku are forced to flee, while Quinoxius hunts them down. Within herself, Mirai finds herself fighting against the creature which has taken over her body, wanting to protect her friends but finds herself weakening. Chased to an abandoned building, Himeko tries to protect Riku against Quinoxius, but finds herself unable to do anything against the super powerful drone. Dornus mocks them but Himeko finally gets through to Mirai, who turns on Dornus. Dornus, having had enough of this, strikes against Mirai. Himeko jumps into the way, taking the blunt of the blast, while Dornus escapes with Riku. Mirai, reverting back to Quinox as the drone part finally dies away, runs to her friend's side, desperate to save her. Calling out for anyone to help, she's shocked when a crystal like object suddenly bursts out from herself and then lowers itself into Himeko. As she watches, Himeko herself transforms into a senshi!
Sailor Salacia Arc: Episodes 71-75
Mirai is shocked to see Himeko become a senshi and even more so when Himeko declares herself to be Sailor Salacia, senshi of sea winds. However, before Mirai can ask anymore questions, Himeko/Salacia runs off, determined to try and stop Dornus. Mirai tries to keep up but soon loses track of her. When she doesn't show up at school the next day, Mirai and Shina contact Matsumi, who tells them that Salacia was once a colony of Quinox and that it was lost a long time ago. She also warns that if this crystal has joined with Himeko, she might be losing herself to the power of the gem, which may make her not able to tell innocent people from enemies. After several false leads, Mirai finally manages to track Salacia to a local building, where she has kidnapped a student who had bullied her earlier, thinking that she is in league with the enemy. Forced into battle, Quinox manages to get through to her friend, forcing her to finally reject the influence of the crystal. Realizing what being Sailor Salacia means, she swears her eternal loyalty to her friend and to fight for her, something which surprises Quinox. Returning to her home, Mirai, Himeko and Shina are shocked to learn that Riku has vanished! After a rocky start, the three manage to track down her location near the bay, where they encounter an invisible spaceship hidden ontop of the water. Forced to fight their way in past some Drone infected dock workers, they discover Dorcus linking Riku to a satellite like set up. While Salacia holds off the drones, Quinox talks to Dorcus, trying to convince him to stop and to free Riku. He instead attacks her, telling her that she will not stop his mission. Shina interferes, managing to bite him on the hand, causing the man to throw the kitten across the room, being caught by Salacia. Having had enough of the girls, Dorcus tries to attack them directly but Quinox on reflex attacks back, trying to save her friends. The blast misses but knocks him into his own machinery, destroying him in the process and revealing him to be yet another Drone. Shocked at what she had done, Quinox is even more surprised to discover an injured Riku, who reveals that she is in fact simply a robotic component to the device Dorcus had hooked her up to. She was to gather and send data to the world where Dorcus and his companion had originated and unforenatly he had already managed to beam most of it into space. Thanking Quinox for being her friend and begging her to stop her creators, she permanently shuts down. Returing to her friends, Quinox realizes there is only one way they can stop what is coming: go into space after them.
Space Arc: Episodes 77-78
Note: Episode 76 is a Clip Show
Launching from Earth within the captured space ship, Mirai can only watch as the Earth gets farther and farther. Himeko tries to comfort her in that she's doing the right thing, but their attention is taken away when the ships original systems suddenly come online, blasting them out of the solar system. Trying to regain control of the ship, they only manage to smash into an asteroid, which in the process damages part of the ship. Fearing for their lives, Mirai and Himeko nearly die to oxygen starvation before Shina, mostly by accident, manages to turn the systems back on again, warping them back on their original course. Mirai finds Himeko has sustained injuries in the suddenly re-activation and in her attempt to help her, is attacked by the now hallucinating Himeko, something which she finds troubling since it could damage the rest of the ship in the process. After a painful fight, they finally manages to calm her friend down, just in time for Shina to come to them with alarming news: they have arrived at their destination.
High Lords Arc: Episodes 79-90
Mirai, Himeko and Shina find the ship approching what seems to be a gigantic island hanging in the middle of space. Before they can react, the vessal's systems lock on and are drawn deep into an open cavern, which they find is filled with ships and what appears to be armed soldiers. Trying to sneak past, they are spotted and forced to fight their way out, before accidently triggering a hidden door and falling below.
Meanwhile, four beings, called High Lords, meet with a mysterious figure hidden behind veils on a throne, who report that everything is prepared for their final move. The figure is pleased, as it will mean the end to a long mission. However, one of the lords then suddenly reports that a ship has returned with strangers on board, ones who had managed to fight their way past the soldiers. Disturbed by this, the figure orders their high lord to bring them in, so they may know more of why they are here.
Mirai, Himeko and Shina find themselves in a city underneath the surface of the floating island. Trying to blend in, Mirai ins't certain where they should begin. Shina suggests that they try and find the location of where the transmission was sent, something which both girls agree to. However, before they can get very far, they're suddenly ambished by a gang who drag them away. The gang is lead by a young woman named Asara, who at first is astonished to discover them to be strangers, asking them why they're here. When Mirai reveals what they're looking for, Asara agrees to help them, as her group are rebelling against the plans of the ruler of the island, High Queen Ora. With this in mind, the three get to work, helping the gang to sabotage and help others who dislike the ruling class at the same time. At the same time, the High Lords work to try and stop their actions, hoping in part to either kill them or capture them. The first, Josur, tries to attack directly, ambusing them several times and trying to destroy them with his Mech like machines. However, eventually Mirai and Himeko are able to trick him, resulting in him accidentally destroying himself with his own weapon. The second, Moras, is much more crafty and instead sends her own soldiers to attack civilians, blaming the strangers on it. Thanks to Shina, her misdeeds are eventually broadcast and in her panic, ends up falling prey to her own monsters. The third, Burai, lures out Mirai and Himeko with a story involving an apperently kidnapped Earthling. However, in a drawn out one on one fight, he ends up underestimating his opponents and falls to his death.
Finally, Shina manages to locate the area in which the transmistter is located, a mission which Asara insists that she take part in. Managing to make it past guards and taking on a vastly powerful monster, the four finally reach the location in which the energy was originally sent. However, they soon discover it to be a trap. Much to Mirai's horror, Asara reveals herself to be the final High Lord and calls in reinforcements to finally bring in the three. Mirai and Himeko transform, but find themselves overwhelemd and are forced to flee. In the confusion, Mirai and Shina are seperated from Himeko and forced back to the old HQ of the gang, the two are forced to face the angry and disbelieving rebel forces there.
Final Arc (91-101)
Mirai and Shina manage to convince the rebel force that they're on their side and to help them rescue Himeko. Himeko, meanwhile, is brought before the Queen herself and though she is unable to see her due to her being hidden behind curtains, she realizes how powerful she is. Mirai, Shina and the rebels begin their plans to save Himeko by deciding to use the ancient tunnels beneath the city to reach the palace. Going through the tunnels, Shina and Mirai several times get separated, facing against ancient monsters as well as a den of thieves living down there. During one of their wanderings, the two stumble onto an ancient room filled with machinery. Shina manages to activate it and the two discover the whole history of the island: The people on it belonged once to a planet far off outside the galaxy. However, soon it became evident that the entire world would soon be rendered lifeless to a huge cosmic storm. Worried for her people, Queen Oma had a generation ship constructed, with the sole purpose of trying to wait out the disaster with plans to return to the planet once it could be inhabitable again. However, something apperently went wrong, as the world drifted off far off course.
The queen soon learns from Himeko about the existence of Sailor Senshi and worried about her plan, declares that they shall move forward their plans. Just as Shina and Mirai rejoin with the others, the entire area begins to shake, causing part of the tunnel to collapse, cutting off their means of escape. They have no choice to make their way up a long shaft to where the throne room is. Mirai and Shina are frightened up continue on their way, hoping to save himeko.
Meanwhile, over Japan, the massive form of the Island begins to slowly descend, causing power to be cut off in both Tokyo and Yokohama as it starts to drain away the energy around it. Large tendrils start to extend down from it, latching onto the ground as it tries to lower itself.
Himeko manages to free herself, just as Mirai and Shina and the rebels make their way in. Asara orders her men to attack the rebels and a fight breaks out as both Mirai and Himeko transform. In the middle of the night, the curtain suddenly comes off, revealing a huge computer structure, with the Queen inside a large glass tube. Shina realizes the truth, that the computer was the actual leader and was simply using a projection of the queen to do it's work. The computer acknowledges this fact, revealing that long ago the Queen fell sick and was preserved to protect her but that the computer was instructed to continue it's mission. However, over time the computer realized that to return to the planet was fruitless and thus has been searching for a new world for them, no matter what the cost may be. It also reveals the original planet to have long been restored as had the queen's health. Asara is shocked by this, realizing all their work had been a lie. However, the computer takes this as an act of defiance and kills her with an energy blast. Before Quinox and Salacia's shocked eyes, the machine raises itself up, constructing a body out of the area around it to try and destroy the intruders in a desperate act to complete it's mission. Shina, meanwhile, runs off with one of the rebels to try and find a way to end the computer's program.
The three start to fight, with Quinox and Salacia try to dodge the creature's attacks and fight back with their own attacks. Quinox wonders why it couldn't find a peaceful solution to it's problems, which the computer stating that it must complete it's programming, no matter what the cost and human lives are of little concern to it. A stray blast hits Quinox, causing her to fly out of the island and start to plummet towards the ground. However, Salacia catches her hand and promises Quinox that she won't ever let her down. As Salacia pulls her friend up, the two senshi see the computer start to rise up against them weapons aimed at them, stating that it has won and that humanity will soon be wiped out. The two prepare to fight and then are surprised when the humanoid seems to writh and morph out of control. Shina (over a mental connection) alerts them that she has managed with help to sabotage the base programming, ending it's capability to attack. The two senshi combine their powers and with the memories of each other and everyone they have met, fires a combined Quinox Storm Current blast, destroying the computer for good. Much to their surprise, the form of the real queen emerges, glowing gold and thanks them for saving her people. She promises Quinox that they will find a new path to the stars and then with her powers, teleports them back to the ground, as the island takes off back into space.
Mirai, Himeko and Shina awake once more in Yokohama and are at first confused on what happened. Mirai is then suddenly contacted by Matsumi, who is checking if she is alright, since she saw the island attack. Mirai says she's fine and that she is happy to be home.
Things return to normal as Mirai and Himeko once more go back to school (having been excused with being on a school sanctioned trip with Matsumi's help). Shina works with freya on learning more technology to help the two. The three think to themselves about what it means to have a home and decide that while they may not all come from the same place, Earth really is their home. They walk off, passing by another teenager with her dark hair tied up in a ponytail, the three looking up at space and hoping the people on the island find their own way home soon.
Shin Sailor Q X the Movie: Great Space Elevator Mystery
Inside a building, a man attempts to take several photos, sending several texts on his cellphong at the same time. However, someone catches him and he screams in terror.
Two days later, Mirai's class goes on a field trip to visit the newly opened Space Elevator. The tour guide states that it will offer trips to the highest point in the Earth's atmosphere. Mirai is very excited by this prospect, while Himeko doesn't understand the point of it. The tour is interrupted when the man behind the tower, Hiyoki Ginga appears and begins to explain to the young students about how important it is to capture one's dreams no matter what the cost. While he is making his speech, Mirai notices a girl not much older then her try to sneak past security. However, she is soon spotted and is quickly escorted out. While Himeko doesn't think anything of it, Mirai gets the feeling that there is something more to her story. Mirai is determined to find out what is happening, so with Himeko's help, manages to sneak off after her.
The girl realizes she's being followed and turns a corner and then grabs at the person behind her, only to grab Mirai. She demands to know why Mirai is following her, with Mirai saying that she was worried and that she was sure something was wrong. The girl tells her it's none of her business and to leave her alone, but Mirai just wants to help. Just then, two of the security guards appear and suddenly morph into some sort of dark monster. The girl tells Mirai to run and prepares to fight it on her own. Mirai protests but the girl charges forward, managing to kick away one of the monsters. Mirai is so shocked by this display that for a moment all she can do is watch. However, she manages to transform (without the other girl noticing) and defeats the creatures with an Air Crash, though the other girl is knocked out. Sailor Selecia shows up, checking to see if Quinox is ok and then wonders where the monsters came from. The two de-transform and Mirai manages to wake the girl, who wonders what happened. However, she grows defensive again and runs off. Himeko finds that she accidently left her phone behind and when holding it, discovers that it has been left on strange series of numbers.
Inside the building, Hiyoki Ginga looks over a display inside his private office. He asks the security guards on the status of the intruders and they reveal her to have escaped. He is undisturbed by this, though, knowing that she will soon come to him and that no one will be able to stop his ultimate plan.
Shina looks up the numbers on a computer (having been taught to by Freya) and discovers them to be coordinates in space. She also discovers a large object, like a planet, heading straight for Earth!. Mirai and Himeko realize that the Space Elevator has something to do with it and decide with some reluctance to go that night to investigate.
The two manage to break in without any trouble but before they can get very far, they bump into the girl from before. She wonders why they've been following her and Mirai reveals they have her cell phone and give it back to her. She reveals that her brother had been a reporter and had been investigating the space elevator and how it had suddenly been built by someone who up until then had never existed. When he disappeared, she went to try and find out what had happened to him. Mirai promises that she will help her find out the truth but before they can go any further, they are suddenly ambushed by more of the monsters. Mirai and Himeko are forced to transform in front of the girl, who is shocked by the fact that they're senshi. The two try to fight them, trying to protect the girl in the process. However, Hiroyuki Ginga appears out of nowhere and blasts all three with a strange energy burst from his hands.
Meanwhile, Shina is with Matsumi, who watch on a monitor as the large planet grows closer and closer to Earth. Shina wants Matsumi to intercede, but Matsumi is sure Mirai can handle this.
Quinox awakens and finds herself locked tight to some kind of pole with Salacia and the other girl. Much to her shock, they are inside a large dome at the top of the elevator, with a clear view of outer space. Hiroyuki appears and applauds their powers but tells them that it was all for naught. He then transforms into an armored alien like creature, revealing himself as Imperal and that he has come to lead his world to this planet to consume it into itself. Even as they watch, they can see the looming Dark Star approaching, it's energy starting to affect the planet as well as the room around them. Imperal declares the end of Earth to be on hand and tha the will finally see the misirable planet destroyed. However, much to his surprise, Salacia manages to break free, freeing Quinox and the girl as well. Quinox declares that they will never destroy the planet but Imperal decides he has had enough of them and fires a large blast at the three. Quinox tries to hold back the blast, as the planet grows closer and closer. She tries to beg Imperal to give up his plan and to stop the Dark Star. However, he only mocks her and pushes more energy into the blast. With the help of Salacia, she manages to push back the attack with the help of Salacia, mortally wounding the alien. Deciding he will take them all with him, he blasts the dome, causing it to partially shatter and for him to be sucked into the depths of space. Salacia grabs hold of a pole to try and keep her ground but watches in horror as Quinox is dragged outwards. However, the girl grabs Quinox's hand and tries to keep her from flying out. The girl declares she won't lose anyone anymore and that no matter what, she'll try and save Quinox. Suddenly, a crystal emerges from Quinox's chest and enters the girl, causing the surprised teenager to suddenly transform into a winged sailor senshi: Sailor Venti. At the same time, Quinox's own brooch lights up and transforms her into a new form: Space Sailor Quinox. Realizing if they don't do something, the earth will be destroyed, Quinox, creating somehow a force field around the three of them (she doesn't know how), flies into space along with Salacia and Venti.
On Earth, the space elevator collapses as energy from the Dark Star starts to affect Yokohama.
In space, the three face the vast approching Dark Star and find the energy pushing them back. Without warning, Imperal reappears and tries to attack Quinox, Salacia and Venti. After a short battle, Quinox manages to blast Imperal far off into the distance of space using her Rhapsody Cross. The three try to get closer but are buffeted by the hard winds. With the help of Venti, who's flight powers help them keep on the path, the three combine their energies into the Q Endless Cyclone Shot, striking the core of the star and causing it to explode, in the process sending the three plummiting to Earth. Coming to, Quinox and Salacia find that Venti has vanished and then quickly run off to try and avoid attention from the press and police.
The next day at school, Mirai still wonders what happened to Venti, while Himeko thinks she must have gotten scared and run off. However, their attention is taken when a new student is introduced, a girl named Sora Suzuki. The two are shocked to realize it's Venti, who then chooses to sit next to them and then asks them in a whisper what the next step to being a hero is.

The next morning, Mirai heads off to school with Himeko and Sora, all three of them late due to the fact that for some reason the earthquake seemed to have knock out power across the city. However, they don't get far before they notice a young child crying in a corner. While Sora feels they should keep going and while Himeko is sympathetic, she too feels that should keep moving. However, Mirai feels sorry for the child and goes to help her out, learning that she had missed her bus and that she tried to walk to school but got lost. Mirai decides to accompany the child and manages to convince the others to help out, even though they will be late. As they leave, they are unaware of a mysterious crack following them along their way.
Finally reaching the school, Mirai is happy to see the girl now much happier then before but just as the three leave, a mysterious woman appears and tells the young girl that she will claim the "Crystal of her Heart". Mirai hears the girl scream and running back with Himeko and Sora, discover the girl passed out on the ground, the woman holding up a strange grey crystal. Sora runs forward, transforming in the process but the woman is quicker then her and quickly knocks her out of the way with an unknown energy. Upon seeing this, Mirai and Himeko transform, but they fare no better. While the woman gloats, however, Shina manages to knock the crystal out of her hand, Sailor Salacia quickly catching it. Furious, the woman is about to attack the cat but discovers herself surrounded by the three senshi. Realizing that she is outnumbered, the woman summons a creature known as a Shard from a jewel on her necklace and sends it after Quinox and her friends. The three are barely able to defeat the monster, the woman escaping in the process through a crack in the ground. However, Quinox is able to get the crystal back to the girl, allowing her to recover.
Over the next few days, the girls encounter this woman several other times, each time hunting for the shards from various different people across the city, including a local sports event, an idol meetup and one of her classmates from school! Eventually Himeko becomes a target herself, forcing Miara and Sora to chase after the woman, who makes her way towards a large crack on the edge of the city. Quinox and Venti manage to corner Peri, forcing the woman to transform into a stone like creature and fight back. Though the woman is able to badly hurt the two, a lucky shot by Quinox manages to hit Peri in her weak spot, injuring her badly. Before they ask her why she's looking for these shards, the woman is suddenly destroyed by a blast and though Quinox and Venti search, they are unable to find the source, unaware of three figures watching them from a distance.
Hunters Arc: Episodes 112 - 121
More coming soon!
Neo Sailor Quinox using Rhapsody Barrage
As a sailor senshi, Mirai has enhanced abilities in advance of those of a normal human being. However, while her speed and agility are slightly greater, she is not very physical compared to the other senshi.
- Air Crash: Mirai's main attack. Gathers energy above her head and sends it outward in a sweeping motion, creating a large cutting shockwave.
- Air Shield: Small circular shield made of air.
- Hurricane Strike: Combined attack with Sailor Titan. Funnels air energy through arrow shot by Titan. Very powerful.
- Rhapsody Lyre: Mirai's senshi weapon. Unlike the others, the Rhapsody Lyre was constructed by the Queen of Quinox herself. The instrument is almost completely indestructible and has several secrets that the young girl has yet to unlock. It's abilities include:
- Rhapsody Barrage: a barrage of air energy shot from the jewel on the lyre when specific notes are played. Has a wide field of attack but can only be used sporadically as it requires recharging afterwards.
- Rhapsody Guard: the lyre can be used to block attacks both energy and physical. This is an automatic feature, rather then needing to be summoned.
An upgrade created when Mirai was exposed to the energies from the Stargem, a magical jewel from the world of Noi. Her fuku gains larger shoulder pads, while the gold on her uniform turns purple. Her center brooch becomes far more eleborate with the Stargem (or a copy of it) appearing in the middle. Her head tiara also gains a star symbol on it.
- Air Holy Shot: A blast of Stargem laden air energy shot from her palm. It acts as a shockwave.
- Air Holy Circle: A magical barrier which acts as invisible armor against most attacks. Can also be used to enhance user's strength.
- Rhapsody Staff: An upgrade to the Rhapsody Lyre. The lyre itself becomes part of the headpiece of the staff with rings around the central pole itself. It's abilities include:
- Rhapsody Orb: An orb of air energy swung out from the staff head itself, which can be directed.
- Rhapsody Block: The staff can be used to block attacks but unlike the Rhapsody Guard, it creates a very small feedback against the attacking foe in the process.
A form Mirai accessed when fighting against a revived Necros, Imperial form adds gold designs to her uniform as well as a gold crown like tiara.
- Quinox Infinite Ascension: A sword slash using the Outer Apocalypse Lance. The attack summons every version of Sailor Quinox from across the multiverse and is so powerful, it can slice the entire universe in half.
- Outer Apocalypse Lance: An ancient blade built to defeat Necros in case of her return, it contains gems from each Outer planet. While Mirai used it once, it is currently in the possession of Andy Dioll.
A form Mirai got when she was first awakening Sailor Venti. Space form changes her blue bows to purple and adds a slightly more futuristic look to it.
- Q Endless Cyclone Shot: Attack using the combined energies of Quinox, Salacia and Venti, blasted out from the Rhapsody Cross as a large energy like bullet.
- Rhapsody Cross: A crossbow like structure with several strings. Fires large energy blasts from it.
- Mirai enjoys baseball and is a big fan of both the Yokohama Baystars and the Minnesota Twins.
- Mirai can understand English due to her mother teaching her it when she was growing up. However, she doesn't speak it.
- Out of all the senshi, Mirai considers Andy her friend.
- Mirai has a fear of heights and hates flying in planes.
- Mirai has visited the United States a few times to visit her grandparents, but never gone outside of Minnesota.
- Mirai's favorite food is calamari, while her least favorite food is radishes.
- Matsumi once called Mirai "the kindest soul she ever met"
