From the moment that Phobos and Deimos first appeared in the series, I think that many fans got the sense that there was probably something deeper lurking within Rei’s bird companions. They had Mars-themed names, after all, and time and again we would find ourselves introduced to talking cats throughout Sailor Moon‘s run. So why not talking birds?
And yet, it took four long years before we ever learned any more about them… in the manga, at least.
Who are Phobos and Deimos really? What is their role in the series? And is it true that they’re also Sailor Soldiers in training?
Stick around, because today we’ll be taking a look at these questions and more as we discuss Sailor Mars’ feathered companions!
