Sailor Moon, Act 30
"Are you a man? Or a woman?"
"Man, woman. Why should something like that matter?"
This is yet another reason why I love Sailor Moon. No, Haruka/Usagi was never going to happen, but Naoko doesn’t treat it as ~*doomed*~ because they’re both women or treat it as comedic or something that you shouldn’t take seriously. It’s a relationship that’s used to cause jealousy between Mamoru and Usagi, in a way that’s natural and maybe even healthy for them to work through, it makes them stronger in the end, but that doesn’t mean Haruka’s feelings for Usagi or Usagi’s attraction to her, no matter her gender, any less real or important. They have very real chemistry, the kind that you can practically cut yourself on in these pages, and that’s wonderful.

Omake: Mamoru’s Dilemma
It is my firm belief that when it comes to Usagi, Haruka and Minako troll the hell out of Mamoru whenever possible.
