Sailor Moon’s Reboot WILL Represent the Manga’s LGBT Content

Hey, remember when Sailor Neptune and Sailor Uranus showed up and they were “cousins” who liked to gaze at one-another with dreamy sparkles and sunlight softly coming in through the curtains of their shared room? Yeah, nobody bought that shit.

Which is why it’s very good news that the new Sailor Moon reboot has promised that the LGBT story lines from the original manga will actually be represented this time around.

Zoisite will be a dude!

Uranus will be gender fluid.

Serena/Usagi will be a little bi-curious! (hopefully)

Now as long as they don’t throw in some random and seriously disturbing story lines about Usagi/Serena binging and purging, or Usagi/Serena and Rei/Ray cat-fighting over men, or any of the other more-than-a-little problematic elements from the TV show, we’re all good.

By the way — who was your favorite Scout? Mine was always Jupiter, but then I realized that I only liked her because she was tall with brown hair (and I was tall with brown hair). Poor girl doesn’t actually have a personality, now that I think about it. So, as an adult, my favorite is probably Rei/Mars.

  1. Howdy! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly?
    My web site looks weird when browsing from
    my apple iphone. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be
    able to resolve this problem. If you have any suggestions, please share.
    Many thanks!

  2. I’ve not watched much Sailor Moon, but in most of the anime I watch, when a character is crushing on another of the same sex, it’s always very overt, but it seems to stop just short of any actual physical or emotional consummation … I just mean, the “crush” almost always seems to be one-sided, with one party almost embarrassed or simply tolerating the attention. It’s more fan service, and any relationship beyond friendship and “crushes” never seems to fully emerge. (I think of A Certain Scientific Railgun and the one little girl who’s always trying to grab her friend’s boobs…lol) That said, I don’t know what age the original SM was tailored to, so maybe that’s why they left the LGBT angle unfulfilled, but the original writers of most anime plotlines don’t seem to have the hang-ups a lot of people have about those types of relationships. But by the same token, I have yet to see an anime where there is a SERIOUS homosexual relationship angle.
