30 Day Anime Challenge Day 22: Favorite Romantic Couple (Haruka and Michiru)

Ahh late 90s/early 2000s English anime dubbing. Cloverway way cool with a nine year old  girl trying to hook up with a horse, but two lesbians Sailor Scouts dating and loving each other was wrong.  So rather just censor them just a little bit as say best friends (who were a tad wee too close to be just best friends), let’s make them cousins.  In fact, let’s not just make them cousins, but  also keep their original Japanese never incestuous-in-the-first-place lesbian relationship intact – thus creating two cousins who were fucking each other like they’re from Alabama, USA.

Great job Cloverway!

Ya younger Sailor Moon fans best be happy ya didn’t have to deal with such awful (and homophobic) censorship.  These niggas just could had called them best friends (who were a wee bit too close to be just friends) but cousins? Sigh.

“My first kiss was with was Brad, the cutest guy in school” lmfao get that bullshit out my face.

But yea, Haruka and Michiru, they’re my favorite anime couple because of how well written they are as a same sex couple. I love how they were treated  like a normal everyday couple, and not like some freak show just because they were homosexuals. (Remember kids, this was the 90s when homosexual and minority characters were written as jokes or “magical”.)

Haruka and Michiru’s relationship also felt legit, like what you see any other couple do in real life – holding hands, teasing each other, natural chemistry off each other, etc.   It didn’t felt force at all – like a real relationship.

Neptune and Uranus Aren’t Lovers! (Or How I Thought That Was a Fanmade Rumor)

Just two loving cousins.  Yep.  Nothing else.

So, a funny story on how I discovered that these two weren’t  cousins,  but unrelated lovers.  Gotta love 90s anime  dubbing censorship.

Back around in late 2001, I legit thought Uranus and Neptune being lesbians was a fanmade rumor.  To me, they were just cousins whom interactions  were  just a bit wee too close to be cousins. While browsing the now defunct SailorMoon.org message boards, there were a post about how Neptune and Urnaus weren’t cousins, but a LGBT couple.

 

Due to prior trust issues with the anime community from finding out that  Dragon Ball AF was a fan made project (Thanks Kanzenshuu!), I didn’t  believe they were lesbians.  I refused to believe they were gay as hell! The internet is full of liars and nerds who want to make up bullshit for their sick nasty, OTP incest fanfiction! I decided to dig deeper, discovering sources from fansites such as Sailor Moon Uncensored and Suburban Senshi (one of the longest running Sailor Moon fansites).

It took me nearly an entire day of using 56k dial up services to accept the fact that they were unrelated lovers and not everything is a fan made rumor. Their hand holding scene should had been my first clue.  But I was an innocent 11-year-old kid at the time.

This was my first clue and it went over my head.  Fuck you Cloverway.
