Lita or Makoto Kino is Sailor Jupiter and is the third to join the Sailor Senshi. She is tomboyish and very tough, and has a very strong personality. Her element is thunder and she fights in the name of justice for Jupiter.
Makoto Kino is a tomboy who transfers into Usagi's school. She is very tall and strong for a Japanese schoolgirl, she can transform into Sailor Jupiter, attacking with lightning and with some control over plants. When she was young both of her parents died in a plane accident so she lives alone and takes care of herself. Although she is never seen working anywhere she always seems to be financially ok. She is most known for her physical strength. When first transferring to Usagi's school there was rumorers of her being kicked out of others schools for attacking teachers and students. Even though everyone was terrified of her, Usagi wasnt and quickly made friends with her.
Although she is a black belt in karate she is also has a black belt in cooking. Whenever going out with the group or just going to someones home she always 'brings goodies' and everyone seems to enjoy her cooking. She also seems to enjoy cleaning and doing other domestics things which at first shocked the other sailor scouts.
She seems to have a very protective personality. If someone is hurt or if someone is messing with one of her friends she will quickly confront the person causing the problem and make them back off. She is also very loyal.
Even though she is busy with school and as a Sailor Scout she hopes to marry young and own her own flower and cake shop.
Her powers are electrical in nature and she calls down lightning from the sky in an attack originally called "Supreme Thunder". Her powers were later upgraded and her increasingly stronger attacks called "Supreme Thunder Dragon" and "Super Supreme Thunder". However she is not immune to electricity and has effectively committed suicide by targeting her own body before. Like most of the other Senshi she has died and returned to life several times.
Lita's first anime appearence was in Sailor Moon Episode 25, and her first anime movie appearence was in Sailor Moon R: The Movie. Out of all the original Inner Senshi, Lita is the thrid to be introduced. Right after Sailor Mars, and right before Sailor Venus.
