I know at the start they were all 14 but do you know how old they are at the end? 18?
They barely look like 14 year olds..

The Inner Senshi start at 14 at the beginning of the Sailor Moon series and at the end are 16 years old. Here are the Senshi listed in order of age (oldest to youngest), with their birthday beside their names (original first, dubbed English name in parentheses):

  • Rei (Raye) - April 17
  • Usagi (Serena) - June 30
  • Ami (Amy) - September 10
  • Minako (Mina) - October 22
  • Makoto (Lita) - December 5
Sailors Uranus and Neptune are older than the Inners, having been in high school when they first appeared (during the third arc/season, Sailor Moon Super), when the Inners were still in junior high. In order from oldest to youngest:
  • Haruka (Amara) - January 27
  • Michiru (Michelle) - March 6

Sailor Pluto is most likely the oldest of the Sailor Senshi, but because she is the guardian of the Space-Time door, and depending on which version of the canon you're watching/reading, her age may be different; in the manga, she died during the arc in which she appeared (the second arc, "Black Moon"), stopping time to prevent Prince Diamond from uniting two Silver Crystals; in the anime, she died in the third season (Sailor Moon Super), stopping time to save Sailors Uranus and Neptune in an attack on their helicopter on the way to defeat the Death Busters.
While Setsuna reappears, presumably the same age as when she "died" in both the anime and the manga, it's never definitively stated if she ages alongside everyone else or not. However, she does have a listed birthday:
  • Setsuna (Trista) - October 29
Like Sailor Pluto, Sailor Saturn undergoes some odd aging processes. In both the anime and the manga, she starts out older and then is reborn as a baby that rapidly ages when she receives her Saturn powers once more. The age at which she appears (anywhere from nine years old to 12) to be may or may not be her actual age, especially if her death/rebirth is taken into account:
  • Hotaru (Hotaru) - January 6

Of the main characters, Sailor Chibi Moon is most likely the youngest, although we don't know how old she really is, she appeared to stop aging at some point in her early youth. In the manga, King Endymion mentions that Chibiusa is actually 902 years old, but the reasons behind her age having halted is unknown; while all those of the Moon's royalty have an extended lifespan, they do seem to age at the same rate as normal humans, but halt in their mid-20s. This was not the case for Chibiusa. However, in the manga, once she gained her Sailor Senshi transformation, the seal on her age broke, and she appeared to be a pre-teenager.


This is also the case in the anime, but less dramatically: while she is shown apparently growing taller/having an older appearance after she transforms, it's never explicitly stated by how many years; she appears to be about eight or nine years old, and perhaps just a bit younger when she's not transformed.

If you'd like another explanation:

It is very risky to specifically state an age for any of the Sailor Senshi on a profile page because they get older as the series progressed. It's easier to state their birthdays and then calculate from there how old a Sailor Senshi was during a specific time or season. Here are their birthdays with year:

Moon - June 30, 1978
Mercury - September 10, 1978
Mars - April 17, 1978
Jupiter - December 5, 1978
Venus - October 22, 1978
Neptune - March 6, 1978
Uranus - January 27, 1978
Pluto - October 29, 1976
Saturn - January 6, 1981
Chibi/Mini Moon - June 30, ????
Tuxedo Mask - August 3, 1975
Star Healer - February 8, 1979
Star Maker - May 30, 1979
Star Fighter - July 30, 1979

It's important to note that the time in the Sailor Moon world was parallel to real time when the show first aired in Japan. For example, the show aired on March 3, 1992 so in Sailor Moon's world it was also March 3, 1992. Time in Sailor Moon's world continued like this throughout the whole series. This is how I was able to calculate what year everyone was born in.

It will be very difficult for me to map out each character's age during the progression of the entire season so I will map out Usagi's (Sailor Moon) age throughout each season and hopefully, you can use the birthdays to figure out everyone else on your own.

Usagi was 13 years old when the show aired on March 3, 1992. However, she was 14 years old by Japanese Episode 17 so she was 14 years old for most of the first season. (Okay, this part gets confusing.) The only episode where we see Usagi celebrate her birthday was Japanese Episode 101 in Sailor Moon S when she wanted a pair of glass slippers that was later infected with a daimon. This episode was Usagi's 15th birthday, even though it was June 1994 BECAUSE at the end of the first season, the Silver Crystal granted Usagi's wish that they would all be normal teenagers again so they jumped back one year in age. So in June 1993, Usagi turned 14 AGAIN. This would make Usagi 16 years old in the beginning of Sailor Stars when Mamoru leaves for America on May 11, 1996. Mamoru would be 19-years-old at the same time, factoring in the time jump backward.

The time jump backward essentially forced Usagi, Ami, Rei, Minako, and Makoto to repeat the eighth grade. So in order for the Sailor Starlights to be in the same grade as them in Sailor Stars, the Sailor Starlights must be a year younger than Usagi and the other girls.

Though Sailor Neptune and Uranus were one grade above Usagi, they were still born in the same year. This is also due to the Silver Crystal time jump. Sailor Neptune and Uranus were in 10th grade during "Sailor Moon S" while Usagi was in 9th grade.

However, in the manga, there was no time jump so the Sailor Starlights would actually have been born in 1978 like Usagi in order to be in her grade in Sailor Stars. Sailor Neptune and Uranus can still have been born in 1978, regardless of the time jump, because school begins in March so they could have been accepted into the grade above Usagi's though they were born in the same year.

Yeah, the time jump really confuses people and some calculate the age without it, which would be wrong. I think Chaos summed it up pretty well.

I don't think they put enough effort in to the age/jump back stages.

1978 - 2013 woud be 49yrs if going from 14yrs at 1978.

Nooo she was born in 1978 since shes supposed to be 14 already in 92 when the series was first published :) by the end of the series sailor moon is 16! Stars ends when she was in 10th grade, the year that Mamoru (who is three years older so it fits) leaves for the states to go to university.

 

Although in the 90's anime they made it so that he was already in university when they met............... but in the manga their only 3 years apart  :)

On a side note, when I was 14-15 first watching this show in the 90s, all the drama and romance seemed to make sense.

now i'm 30+ and look back and am like "no way are they old enough for this stuff!"  haha.  like when I was 14-15, no way would my parents let me go to a guy's house who lived by himself!

Rei, Usagi, Ami, Makoto and Minako are 16 years old, I don't know how old Chibiusa is, Michiru and Haruka are 17, Setsuna is either  20 and 21 and Hotaru is either 11 or 12.
