Sailor Venus, also known as Minako Aino, is the fifth member of the Sailor Scouts, but the first to awaken her powers. She demonstrates love related powers to combat her enemies. She has dreams of becoming a star and is very cheerful.
For the entire first 2 seasons and all 3 movies of the DiC dub of the anime, "Mina" was voiced by Stephanie Morgenstern.
However when the show returned for Seasons 3 and 4, Stephanie was unavailable and the director reevaluated the voice cast and recast several characters, and Stephanie Morgenstern was dropped as the voice of Sailor Venus. Emile Claire Barlow (who had previously stood in for Sailor Mars) was cast as her permanent replacement.
