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.
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...
Made much more obvious in the manga. Yes.
