Lets face it, Naoko probably forgot about them. In terms of writing future plot twists and other characters, it probably became inconvenient to keep up with the two of them. The last we see of them in the manga is Act 18, Invasion. (Come to think of it, that's the last time we see a bunch of side characters.)

Anyways, what do you think happened to them. The last we know of the two they're both sensing Usagi drifting apart, and the last thought we get from Naru is how she wishes she could help her. Do you think they all grew apart and just never hung out? Did they all end up in the same highschool? During every major battle, were they and her family searching for her amidst the storms that were probably written off as natural disasters? (Ok, that headcannon has made me sad. Did the two of them get married years later? Did any of them ever discover Usagi's true identity? How did they react when she became Neo Queen? 

There's a lot to discuss here folks! Let's hear your thoughts on it!

We see Naru having lunch with Usagi and Haruka in StarS but she's just written out after that

Naoko could have at least gave a reason why she's written out. Maybe she hanged herself after Usagi abandoned her

^Holy crap! That's taking the idea waaaaay to far, Elyon. You're hitting uncanny valley here. Wow. Just wow. 

And we don't even know if Usagi actually abandoned them or not.

^It's actually an idea a friend came up with (and hey, the manga's pretty dark, so i think it could be a valid reason)

A less darker idea would have her move to Kyoto or something

As for Melvin....he's just the guy who Usagi goes to for information. I remember in Ami-chans First Love when he appeared, Usagi was like "Umino! I totally forgot you existed (for like a year and a half)". I found it hilarious how Naoko acknowledged the fact he just disappeared from the series

Well, in the anime didn't Naru make some comment that at some point she had moved to another city? Or am I thinking of somebody else? That could explain her lack of appearances.

Honestly, it feels like they just kind of drifted apart after Usagi became Sailor Moon. I mean, it seems that Usagi still deeply cared for Naru and wanted to be her friend, but her duties as a senshi got in the way. It was probably much better in the long-shot that they drifted apart, what with all of the danger Sailor Moon kept constantly attracting and getting into (I mean, just look at the first season of the anime. Naru kept constantly getting targeted, and that's the season where her and Usagi had the strongest connection with one another. I don't think this is just coincidence)

And Umino....... lol, it didn't really ever seem like he and Usagi were much of friends. He was just more of the weird classmate who bugged the heck out of her. I'm not surprised they lost connection.

Did they? Do you remember which season? I know it would have been after S, because of the episode where she and Umino entered the love contest and Umino got his pure heart taken.

I think it might have been StarS or maaaaaaybe SuperS. I could be remembering it wrong, though.

i remember Naru appearing in SuperS and getting attacked by Tigers Eye for her Dream Mirror but i don't recall her ever saying anything about leaving (then again i haven't watched SuperS in about a year and i only saw it dubbed)

I always found it sad that motoki's last appearance in the manga was him going "OMG YOU GUYS ARE THE SENSHI LET ME KNOW IF I CAN HELP" 

Then....nothing. It's actually one of the last times we see the crown game center being used as their base as well. There was so much more naoko could have done with it. Considering him finding out their identities never went anywhere, why'd she even bother putting it in?

I headcanon that Naru and Umino ended up getting into/going to different high schools than Usagi and the gang. Umino's grades were certainly good enough to probably get into a more prestigious HS.

Do we see Motoki beyond S? I can't seem to recall whether he shows up in SuperS or not, but that could also be explained by him leaving his job at the arcade to focus on his college studies. *shrug*

I believe he showed up in the SuperS episode where his girlfriend returned from her studies in Africa. Reika had her Dream Mirror attacked by the Dead Moon Circus.

Did we ever see him after that, though? Seriously, between her family and other characters, there is a hell of a lot of wiggle room for headcannons.

I've actually developed quite the sad headcannon. You know how every battle always resulted in some supernatural storm destruction like thing? What if Usagi's family members were out looking for her-each and every single time-only to die and get resurrected with no memories? (well, that's from the manga, anyways)

I know more about the anime than the manga.  That, combined with who I'm a fan of, make me most curious about a supporting character that hasn't been mentioned yet.  In fact, I don't even think he was in the manga.

I'm talking about Urawa Ryo (Greg in the English dub).  He only appeared in two episodes, both in the first season.  I know he moved to a different city after this (I think because of his father's work).  But I'm curious how he developed in that other city.

I like to think positive.  So my theory on this is that his contact with Ami influenced him for the better.  In other words, because of his love for her, he learned to not use his ability to see the future, to not use it to 'cheat' on tests by seeing the answers ahead of time.  He learned from her that it's better to just rely on your natural talents.  From that, he learned how to be a better student that way, and even though his grades may have gone down at first upon making the switch, he started studying harder, and was able to improve his grades that way.

Going into the longer term than the series did, I like to think that when he became independent after (or maybe even during) his college years, he purposely moved back to Tokyo to try to convince Ami to marry him.  Although this gets into another debate that I have - specifically, why are Usagi, Haruka, and Michiru the only senshi to get into a romance?  In other words, why can't any of the other senshi have a love interest who loves them back?

This is pretty much what I headcanon too. Besides, It's sort of a natural thing to grow apart from people from time to time. But I like to think that maybe sometimes, Usagi and Naru get together for lunch or something just to keep in touch. Maybe Naru and Umino get married down the line somewhere.

Honestly, I never even thought of that. I was always stuck on Naru crying over Nephrite's death to even consider that a possibility. I bet Umino would grow up to be pretty fair looking and be a videogame developer.

Well, if the show hadn't given Naru and Umino development in that direction, I might not even consider it (heck, maybe they don't get married, they're awfully young in the series, after all) but they enter that love contest in S and Umino is just so genuine about everything and they're just so sweet together. I could see Umino going into game development or some other branch of computer science/development.

From a writer's perspective, I'd say the lack of appearances was due to the fact that there are a lot of main characters and it's difficult to balance all of them as far as attention. The manga itself was much more compact and I don't think Naoko had had much experience handling that many characters before.

I think Usagi just drifted away from Naru as time went on, sad as it is.

Or maybe the supporting characters started developing Chuck Cunningham Syndrome and were desperately trying to fight it off and make a recovery. XD
