Makoto Kino (Sailor Jupiter) from Sailor Moon

Welcome back to Waifu Wednesday, Niche Gamer’s column where we talk about characters, their appeal, and a little on their history.

Today’s waifu is Makoto Kino, otherwise known as Sailor Jupiter from the Sailor Moon franchise!

Makoto is described as a tomboy who’s tough and quick to act. But despite her reputation, she has girly hobbies like gardening, handicrafts, and has dreams of one day getting married and owning a bakery or flower shop. What is it with tomboys who just want to enjoy their girly hobbies being named Makoto? Someone explain it to me.

Due to being tall and athletic, Makoto has a reputation for being a delinquent. However this reputation creates a gap moe with her girly hobbies and also how she’s really a good person at heart.

Makoto Kino was suggested by one of our readers on X (formerly Twitter)!

Feel free to share who your waifu is on our Twitter or Facebook and who knows, we might feature them in a regular Waifu Wednesday post!
