Laughing Sailor Moon is the name given to a still frame from the anime series Sailor Moon, in which the characters Usagi Tsukino and Makoto Kino are shown laughing nervously. Online, the image has been used as exploitable and reaction picture, and often as smug anime face.


The image of Sailor Moon laughing with Sailor Jupiter comes from episode 27 of Sailor Moon season one entitled "Mercury's Mental Match,[1] which premiered on October 10th, 1992 in Japan and October 11th, 1995 in the United States. During the episode, Usagi and Makoto join the other students in looking at their grades, which have been posted outside their classroom. After Usagi bemoans that she should have worked harder, Makoto suggests that next time she tries studying, causing her and Usagi to laugh nervously.

About one month later, on August 17th, 2013, a Desuchan user Desu reacted to an article about an infamous furry allegedly engaging in sexual activity with a cat with the image of Moon and Jupiter. Over the image (shown below, left) were the words "Get a load of this guy" written in Impact font.

Since then, the image has appeared on numerous image boards (shown below, right).

I was wondering why Sailor Moon is so popular on Tumblr considering they usually favor newer things since a lot of them are too young to be interested in old stuff… but then it hit me.

Of course they of all people would like Sailor Moon.
