Oh yes, hello! I love the thought of these two as a couple. It really clicks in my head, especially in the manga and live action show. <3

My favorite adaption of them is definitely PGSM. That's what got me shipping them in the first place. I loved how they were basically a pair among the group of senshi, and that they had a strong friendship that I feel, if they had done certain actions, could have easily turned into a romantic relationship.

I do like how they were portrayed in the manga as well, even though we didn't get to see much of their interactions. I loved the little side story about Minako sneaking into Rei's school.

Also, I'm not sure if I'm the only whose noticed this, but in some of Naoko's drawings of all of the senshi together, occasionally in some of them Haruka and Michiru will be in a romantic pose, such as holding one another, and as a sort of mirror between the outer and inner senshi, Minako and Rei will be placed together. Maybe this is just the shipper in me and my wishful thinking that perhaps Naoko was giving sly hints about them being a couple, but it is an interesting thing. (I'll post some actual examples of what I'm talking about here when I get home this afternoon.)

I felt that there was a bit more than friendship, with the sublteness of some of the things they said and did. Razz

Once when I was showing a few of the PGSM episodes to my sister, and she said Rei and Minako were like an old married couple that bicker all the time. It made me laugh so hard! XD

PostSubject: Re: Rei x Minako   8th February 2013, 4:35 pm

I'm still in the first major arc of the manga, and Minako is a whole lot different in it obviously, but in the anime they hardly even say a word to each other, so when people get all shippy over their anime incarnations, I think it's kinda lame.

Seems to be based entirely on visual appeal - the color-swappyness of their design gives that a kind of inverted twincest aesthetic, which is so popular. I don't see any chemistry there at all.

As far "evidence" for the ship, I don't see how Naoko was "hinting" at anything. The blatantness of Uranus/Neptune kind of underscores how unnecessary she felt it was to hide girl couples, and I think part of the point of that couple was exploring the possibilities of two senshi in love. As part of their maturity, their relationship was played up in contrast to the four guardian senshi, who were depicted as single, longing for boyfriends, etc. Pairing up the guardians strikes me as missing the point, at least in the canon-covered timeline. Speculation should be reserved for topics and areas that are more unclear.

I think most of the PGSM characters have a lot of chemistry between them, but also that this just makes them interesting friends. There's no need to go drawing romantic connections between them. Again, it's just beside the point of the story being told.

Well...if you do not ship, don't post here? o.o the point of this thread for us goobers to come here and goob together over a ship we like/see. It's the area where we can "spam" about what we like about them, post pictures, post where we see it, etc. and not have to worry over someone coming in and being like "no, it's not there."

I made this a discussion, not a debate. So please, if you do not ship or like, please do not post, okay? ^^

PS -- and I promise you, if you watched PGSM, it's there. You can't miss it.

I like to kinda think that maaaaybe their relationship in PGSM was an after thought of Naoko's...so maybe it could be in the new anime? Yeah right

PostSubject: Re: Rei x Minako   8th February 2013, 5:35 pm

*Disclaimer: I don't mean for this to spark a debate in this thread. I am just explaining my love for this couple*

I love the small hints of their touches with one another, especially in the artbooks and things. They don't have to be so blatantly explicit with one another for there to be feelings. There are so many pictures of them with subtle touches that one wouldn't normally do with a friend, and that same kind of possessive touch doesn't seem to be present when they are with other characters. The only exception I can think of is the picture of Minako groping Usagi xD They are also very often paired together or positioned near each other in pictures as well.

I think it's a very pretty thing, to have such a subtle emotion between two characters that allows us to interpret it as we'd like. It doesn't have to be so blatant and in your face sometimes

I also like the fact that their name counterparts in Roman Mythology have a lot to do with one another, and I love to incorporate mythology into Sailor Moon because it seems to play such a big part in the series as a whole.

Also, I love the way their personalities mesh together. I think they are just a very beautiful couple and while I love exploring different couples in Sailor Moon, Rei/Minako is one of my absolute favorites

And now for some pictures to show what I meant by subtle lovely touches! :3 <3 <3



The way that Minako is leaning into Rei, and their hands looks to be together though Chibiusa blocks the full view.



Uh, well, not much explanation needed for this one, I think xD



Again with the leaning in to one another thing Also I personally think it looks like Minako has her hand on Rei's waist.



One of my favorites. Now Rei has her hand on Minako's waist and Minako looking all sexy while being close to her





These last two are so cute and playful, I had to include those too. To end, I LOVE these two


*end rant o.o*

Ohhhhhh, that pic spam is giving me so many feels right now, Verdandi! And the first picture is a perfect example of what I was talking about, how in drawings that include all of the senshi Rei and Minako are a sort of parallel to Haruka and Michiru. <3

I must be blind because I never noticed these subtle hints before! They're not two I ship, but I am now taking what they say a lot more seriously especially in the manga during the stars arc when they tell the starlights they don't need boyfriends because they have each other or something like that. I definitely see this as a sailor moon manga and PGSM thing only though and not in the anime.

ReiXMinako is my favorite "unofficial" couple in the series. <3
I just really love the way their personalities mesh together (in the manga, that is; I've never seen PGSM ;_; ).

I also love all of the pics Verdandi posted! *steals the first one* >w>

I think PGSM is the best representation of any shipping between the two. That, and Naoko's artworks. (I'm sorry Neith if I say anything spoiler-y. TOTALLY watch PGSM. It is really, really good).

I mean, think about it. Rei and Minako don't really do anything...friend-y, but Rei like, is instantly attached to her, cares about her and all of this. Rei let a Youma get away because she was worried about Minako. She flipped out whenever something bad was going on with Minako. And don't even get me started on the end of the series.... T.T

And I can tell Minako cares deeply about Rei too. I think she just shows it in a more teasing way or serious way (it's subtle in that sense).

I agree with you, Lady Tuxedo. PGSM and Naoko's art definitely represent this couple the best. I've never shipped them in the anime, because they barely even interacted with each other. (boy, would it be great if they dropped hints in the new anime?)

Even in Lady Tux's avatar, I mean look at that pose! I don't personally ship them but I definitely think this is interesting. I've never noticed anything in the artwork until seeing this thread, I wanna look more into it!

You really, honestly, cannot deny this ship. You just, you can't. Especially in PGSM. Even people that don't ship can see it.

I am going to end up posting tons of fanfiction on here, I know it.

I haven't finished reading it yet, but this fanfiction... Welcome Back... seems to be a really good PGSM Rei x Minako fanfiction. It is filled with emotion.

I really cannot. If PGSM doesn't seal the deal that Reinako is canon...I don't know what would. I know there's some people that don't like to ship or like to play it off as nothing, but come. on.

This entry from LJ sums basically my feels up quite nicely.
