    They r cousins in english dub but in japanese they r lovers

    Well, you can be sure I don’t express affection to my cousins in THAT way ^^;
    I always knew about UranusxNeptune, in Spain was never really subtle and I loved them.

    I am more intrigued at wondering how on earth did the grill knew Haruka is a girl when 5 school girls and one Star Fighter mistook her as a boy.

    • Chibi Jennifer July 13, 2014 at 9:53 pm #

      Actually, all the inner girls mistook Haruka for a boy at first as well XD

    • lisa February 8, 2015 at 6:11 am #

      I thought Haruka was first drawn to be not that feminine (no eyelashes, boy clothes). She did become more feminine over time, and I was wondering if Takeuchi did it because she couldn’t draw guys that well.

      • Chibi Jennifer February 9, 2015 at 8:00 am #

        I assume you’re referring to the manga version? :O

  6. minipradasa July 10, 2014 at 9:39 pm #

    I alwais though they were REALLy close cousins XD

  7. Sailor Ninjago June 9, 2014 at 11:05 pm #

    I hate all those people who say if they are cousins they suck.What if the SM fans parents disapprove of homosexuality??Its for their OWN good!You’re just fans of the Japanese one………sorry I was angry -.- I can’t control it -.-

    • Nyxity August 30, 2014 at 11:29 am #

      It is actually funny. In the past when there looked like there would be no hope of the S Season getting dubbed due to Haruka and Michiru’s relationship, fans would say, “They are awesome characters and I want the S season dubbed! Make them sisters/cousins/really good friends if you have to!”

      Those fans got their wish. -__-

      Truthfully, I think those who say Amara and Michelle suck is because they actually do suck – some just like to add in the cousin bit for icing on the cake. The dub destroyed their characters as well as Sailor Pluto’s. They did do a better job with Rini from S Season on, though. Dic’s dubbing of the R Season ruined her. -__-

        It’s a good thing we’re getting a brand new redub of the series :3

    I’m beyond excited about this remake I too am 24 and I remember watching sailor moon as a child but never felt an attachment to any of the sailor scouts until Haruka and Michiru came into play.i totally crushed on Haruka and didn’t put two and two together until I found my fiancĂ© Keira.I’ll be beyond happy if they are lovers instead of cousins which upset me as I live in Canada

    • Chibi Jennifer June 9, 2014 at 9:09 am #

      haha yes! They will definitely no longer be cousins if Sailor Moon Crystal gets to show the third season :D Regardless though, I think we can at least all be excited that VizMedia is releasing Sailor Moon (90s anime) in its full uncut, uncensored glory :D

      • Sailor Venus June 30, 2014 at 7:35 am #

        Ikr It’s out on my b-day July 5th or so they say…

  9. MissE. March 16, 2014 at 3:26 pm #

    I’m 24 and grew up watching the English Dub of Sailor Moon. Haruka and Michiru came into the storyline when I was around 13-14, and I instantly knew that they were lovers. I’m bisexual myself, something I didn’t fully discover and accept until I was 20 when I began a lesbian relationship with a college classmate (we’re both bi, and, as I found out recently when she posted her excitement over the new Sailor Moon: Crystal anime and manga, both fans of SM.) While discussing the changes that would occur, she posted: (and I quote…) “One thing’s for sure. Haruka and Michiru ain’t ‘cousins’ this time around…! :)”

    • Chibi Jennifer March 16, 2014 at 3:32 pm #

      haha yaaay! I really hope the new anime gets to cover all the seasons :3 I would love to see Haruka and Michiru in Sailor Moon Crystal ^^

      I think it’s also great that you were able to discover yourself :) All the best!

      • MissE. March 16, 2014 at 3:42 pm #

        Totally agree… and thanks a bunch. I’ve been with my girlfriend for two years, and we are very, very happy together. :)

  15. crazy January 24, 2013 at 8:14 am #

    lmao this kid is too smart for her own good XD

  18. Alexa March 23, 2012 at 10:50 am #

    Haruka and Michiru at the end: “Are you f**king kidding me!?”

  19. Wind Chaser March 18, 2012 at 10:33 am #

    I find it funny that even as a 7 year old who knew nothing of homosexuality I was still able to instantly recognize these two as lovers even without the music and rose petals lol Though that immediate recognition may just have been my own lesbianism showing through at a young age ^^; the worst part was my confusion after my younger sister got in my face and furiously argued that they were cousins. she has since come to accept the truth. |D

    • ChibiSteph March 31, 2012 at 10:10 am #

      I know what you mean though i was showing more to be bi then lesbian sadly i’m a bi and I can’t change it but I’m not one of those bi girls thankfully xP

      • Elizabeth June 15, 2012 at 2:39 am #

        As soon as I saw them in the Dic version, I was like: “Yeah…sure they’re cousins…I have cousins, and I do NOT hug them like that.” My next thought was that the Dic dub was an epic fail. They tried to turn an anime for teens into a show for little kids.

        • The Panda Queen April 3, 2015 at 10:09 am #

          Actually, the show was for kids in Japan.

          Hitoshi Doi’s page said the show was aimed at 4-12 year olds.

  20. Faye March 10, 2012 at 4:03 pm #

    Yeah, the whole cousins thing confused the HELL outta me when I was a kid. I knew cousins didn’t hug like that.

    • Chibi Jennifer March 10, 2012 at 4:42 pm #

      hehe, at the very least you got to see S on TV ;) Here in Australia it was never broadcast at all..I only heard about the bizarre cousin thing you guys went through ^^;

    • Wind Chaser March 18, 2012 at 10:36 am #

      nor do they talk to each other like Ruka and Michi do, or that episode where Michiru says she likes Haruka’s hands?? lol XD

  21. Sailor Phobos-Deimos January 9, 2012 at 1:59 pm #

    I’ve always been a fan of these two. They’re just so PERFECT for each other!
    I <3<3<3 u, Haruka and Michiru!!!!!

    • crazy January 20, 2013 at 1:58 am #

      ya im so jelous especialy since they come some how make rose pedals come on command

  22. Akane-chan December 22, 2011 at 11:51 pm #

    Damn u, DiC!

  23. Sarah November 30, 2011 at 12:09 am #

    I love how Haruka and Michiru are like ‘Really now?’ in the final panel. XD America really failed horribly to censor their beautiful relationship.

  24. CCW September 20, 2011 at 3:20 am #

    I am a fan of SM in China,struggling to study Japanese as well as English.And I adore Michiru-sama’s elegance so much!Of course Haruka&Michiru is a perfect match!
    Look foward to seeing your new comic strip!

  25. KGS July 7, 2011 at 3:38 pm #

    Man, the English dub is lame. You could still tell that Haruka and Michiru were a couple despite the poor attempt to turn them into cousins for the English dub. Shame on them for trying to ruin one of the best relationships in the show!

    • crazy January 20, 2013 at 2:02 am #

      there were only two and if you ask me It doesn’t relly matter if you already know so don’t flippin’ of the cteator of the English dub okay

    • crazy January 24, 2013 at 8:15 am #

      i love those two who dosen’t

  26. Christina Frederiksen June 27, 2011 at 4:16 am #

    Naoko Takeuchi said they aren’t cousins.. is just the english version of Sailor Moon that made them cousins.

    • MissE. March 16, 2014 at 3:36 pm #

      True. In the manga and the original there are many scenes that make it ABUNDANTLY clear that they are/were lovers. The English version of SM started the ‘cousin’ ruse for the same reason that only the first few episodes of the Stars season was broadcast in the US. Highly critical fans need to remember that anime on a whole was intended for teens 15-18. The show was highly censored in the US, and even an entire season cut out so it could be marketed to young girls. I was born in 1990 and watched the anime from 1997-2005 when it stopped broadcasting on Cartoon Network.

    • Chibi Jennifer March 16, 2014 at 3:44 pm #

      I heard the French had a different way of hiding their relationship.

      They made it seem like Haruka pretended to be a man in civilian form to hide her identity, and Michiru pretended to be “his” girlfriend. That still beats making them cousins.. XD

  27. kenna May 25, 2011 at 8:32 am #

    LOL so funny mummy are thoes two lovers there so cute no sweety there cousins

  28. Tsubasa Chronicles Starlight April 26, 2011 at 6:13 am #

    Haruka & Michiru were wrong 2 begin w/. 1st lesbians, then cousins in the horrible dubb.

    • Chibi April 28, 2011 at 6:05 am #

      there is nothing wrong with their choice/preference of their sexuality. and it’s better to keep those opinions to yourself; otherwise it’ll turn into a controversial debate, and lets not forget that some people will find your statement very offensive.

    • CearaIvfory August 26, 2011 at 1:53 pm #

      I personally don’t mind homosexuality in a tv show/movie/book as long as it’s tastefully done and the characters aren’t totally stereotyped. HOWEVER, as for your complaint about either. Which would you prefer? Lesbians or lesbian incestuous cousins? The first is what Naoko-sensei drew and intended, the latter is what the dub portrayed them to be despite their best intentions.

  29. Chronos Typhoon! I heart Set-chan! April 21, 2011 at 4:39 am #

    The english dubbers made them “Cousins” because they didn’t like how Sailor Uranus and Neptune were lovers.

    • CearaIvfory August 26, 2011 at 1:53 pm #

      Yeah but now they just made them incestuous.

  30. SailorEuropa April 18, 2011 at 6:40 pm #

    These are awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    My compliments to chibijennifer!
    I could never draw like that, let alone create some of the best comics I’ve ever seen

  34. Hinaichigo March 17, 2011 at 9:18 am #

  35. ZuZu February 21, 2011 at 1:42 pm #

    Seven years old watching Sailor Moon dub and I could tell they were lovers.
    now it’s just incest.
    Way to go, DiC. xD

  36. Kadri January 28, 2011 at 5:01 pm #

    This is one of my favorite comics… I still can’t believe the English dub turned them into cousins. That was just silly. XD

    “Oh look, mom! They’re ‘kissing cousins’!!” *wink wink* …right. lol

  37. Asynca January 25, 2011 at 10:47 pm #

    LOL! I loved these two in high school. They were my first rolemodels :)

    • Waterkeeper511 December 20, 2010 at 12:14 pm #

      Yes, of course they’re lesbians. Have you even seen the show?

      Welcome to 1997.

      I don’t mean to sound mean. It’s just very common knowledge that they’re indeed in a relationship.

    • Tsubasa Chronicles Starlight April 25, 2011 at 10:12 am #

      NO SHIT!!!! (amatures!!)

  40. Daenerys December 13, 2010 at 11:36 pm #

  43. Dr. Rorschach October 17, 2010 at 6:45 am #

    Not sure if you ever saw that episode of the Simpsons where Homer becomes a hippie with some of his mothers’ old friends?

    In that episode, Homer by accident places drugs in the juices those guys made and the whole city gets high. Well there was a scene where Grandpa Simpson and his friend are sitting at a bench in the park drinking the juice, and it caused them to laugh and act like Beavis & Butthead.

    Sometimes, I imagine that Haruka & Michiru were sitting there drinking that juice, and doing the same thing, only instead of saying “We are old people” one would say “We are lesbians” and the other would say “that is so cool” and then laugh like Beavis and Butt head.

    • Chibi Jennifer October 28, 2010 at 9:07 pm #

      oh, haha…no I haven’t seen that episode actually :)
