    Default Subtext in Sailor Moon

    I don't know if it's just me, but I think there's alot of subtext in Sailor Moon.Tell me what you think. Is there more going on than what we're shown?

    Lol, if you're implying that there are other yuri couples with the senshi, you'd be rather wrong. Unless you're talking about Usagi and Seiya. Then you'd be half-right. But I assure you, the rest of the senshi are straight as a pin. They're FRIENDS. *sigh* Although in the manga, I'm not so sure about Rei. Rei claims that she hates men. lol

    Yeah, Rei's just anti-men and very independent (maybe to a fault), but definitely not lesbian.

    I dont think thats the case, since there were several episodes where Rei was practically connected at the hip with Momoru, then she backed off when he was destined to be with Usagi. Her and Chad have always had a sorta silent love for each other.


    But yes, in the English version, they made Michiru and Haraku "cousins" for the young american audience. Im pretty sure SM was meant to be for ages 14+

    The 'cousins' thing with Haruka and Michiru was just...goofy. I remember watching it the first time and thinking they must be cousins having a romantic affair. I was a bit relieved to discover they weren't REALLY related. I think the English dubbers would have been better off just telling everyone the truth. O.o

    On topic though, I thought there was a bit of subtext between Rei and Minako in the live-action Sailor Moon.

    I remember an episode where Rei had a crush with Haruka thinking she was a guy, but then again i must have dream it...but I watched it recently, that is one of my favorite episodes.. It is when they still do not know the identities of the outer senshis.

    YAY... It appear that BOREDOM strikes quite often!!

    Rei and Minako in the manga have a similar close relationship to that shared between Rei and Usagi in the anime. I always had the impression that there was an intimacy hinted at in the manga which wasn't carried over to the anime. I imagine to cover it up they introduced Yuuichirou to help pacify rumors about Rei (as she does state she hates men in the manga) and switched the relationship to Usagi, who was conveniently tied to Mamoru.

    Overall I found the manga to be pretty blatant with its context, with very little of that carried over to the anime. Haruka and Michiru were toned down, the affection Haruka had for Usagi was toned down (how about that manga kiss?), say no more about Minako and Rei, and so on an so forth...

    I KNOW, man Cloverway was so retarded. I was like "OMG who are YOU trying to kid!? You phail at life!" Cousins indeed!

    Ah, yes, Haruka definitely had a thing for Usagi. That much is true.
