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.

http://aristocratic72.livejournal.com/3607.html


I always thought with this part they were being so weird about it because they were competing for the flowers? But okay, here's just my little theory on it the whole ordeal.

Well honestly, I feel like there's no way that little microscopic things (like Rei moving closer to Minako in four frames) are done on purpose. I just don't really think that they would specifically instruct her to do things like that. I feel like if they wanted to subtlety hint at a canon relationship, they would have made it a little more obvious.

However, even if the directors/writers/Naoko/whoever did not write in these little tiny looks and actions on purpose for the sake of creating a relationship between the two, I don't think that this rules out the possibility of their feelings. When you watch PGSM... I mean... COME ON, there is DEFINITELY some sort of special connection there, whether it be romantic or not. They have a special relationship that NO other senshi have with one another. There's practically NO denying that.

So anyways, I'm thinking is that their romantic tension or whatever EXISTS, but is not due to Naoko/the writers/the directors/ etc. It is completely due to the characters of Rei Hino and Minako Aino. I feel like really good characters have a mind, heart, and soul of their own that a writer can only control to a certain point. I feel like Minako and Rei could have some sort of relationship that Naoko herself doesn't even know about. I feel like the characters could just be so compatible that they naturally show this tension throughout the entire series because of their personalities-- whether it's done on purpose or not. If actresses can play Rei and Minako as accurately as possible, they let their characters take the reign, and when their characters are so romantically compatible, the girls can't help but show that-- whether they're aware of their doing so or not (i.e. the entire scene in this LJ post). So yeah, I think that there could definitely be something going on between them, but I just have a theory that Naoko had no control over it-- the characters just have feelings of their own.

My whole thing on PGSM is beyond just that one scene. It's basically stemmed from the whole series really. Rei is obviously taken by Minako. Like something pulled her in. Maybe it was because Minako faked being their princess, but this capture lasted even beyond when Minako revealed she wasn't the princess. This mesmerization caused Rei to let a youma get away (like twice I think). It caused Rei to be the most heartbroken when Minako died (2005 show. No spoilers -_-). Rei was the special one that inherits Minako's power in the end. It's just little things, yes little things, that captured the audience and made them go "is there a thing?" because while small, it is powerful.

And we will probably never know what Naoko thinks truly on Reinako. We have a couple canon images that go beyond the realm of "normal contact" between friends, that usually only Haruka and Michiru do. That's there for some reason. Then you have these little tidbits in PGSM between them. Reinako is like on the edge of fanon and canon because there isn't a conformation and there is also no denial.

Plus, they're cute. I don't see either one of them strictly for men, either. Minako is the goddess of love after all.

Anyway, I love the bit on you thinking this is out of Naoko's hands and in Rei's and Minako's. Like they're really real.

^ That's a beautiful drawing of Rei and Minako ♥ I too ship them a lot and they're actually my ultimate SM OTP. I do ship others but Rei x Minako stands strongly within my heart. =3

Plus both Venus and Mars in mythology are the birth parents of Cupid. The cherubic matchmaker. =D

o_O xD now then yeah, that is quite the love child. lul. Anyway, Reinako ftw! =3

PostSubject: Re: Rei x Minako   25th December 2014, 10:45 am

I actually wrote up a big long tumblr post a while back gushing over why I love reinako so much


Me wrote:
1: Rei/Minako: Where do I begin on ReiNako…  These two dorks are basically two sides of the same coin, and complement each other perfectly.  At their cores, both Rei and Minako are very serious and dedicated people towards their duty.  They are both hardworking and ambitious people, with Minako able to throw herself into her dream of becoming an idol, and Rei at trying to achieve the Rei Hino International Success Life™.
Rei is a character who, when we meet her, has built up a lot of emotional walls, she’s been hurt too many times and puts up this image of the cool and perfect temple priestess.  While Usagi plays a huge role in getting Rei to tear down those emotional barriers, because Usagi is The Princess, Rei feels that she can never be on the same level as Usagi.
But Minako, Minako is her equal, her partner.  Minako knows that the world is a dark place, and Minako really gets it.  With Minako, Rei has somebody she can be an equal with, and somebody who can understand her burden as a senshi.  And ultimately, that is what Rei wants, she wants somebody who can be an equal partner and somebody who can understandwhat being a senshi means to her.
Minako on the the other hand.  Minako had to grow up fast.  In the space of the year, Minako went from kind of a tomboy and a bit of a space case, to a warrior who had faced death, and somebody who had killed.  Minako’s time as Sailor V went from riding high at the idea of being a superhero to very quickly understanding the human cost of war.  Add to that, that she has years of Silver Millennium memories in her noggin, Minako is very much somebody who grew up fast.
But when Minako sees Rei, Minako sees somebody who gets it.  Rei was also forced to grow up fast and to close herself off from the world.  Minako sees somebody who knows what she’s been through, and knows what it’s like.  And above all else, is an equal partner.  Minako sure as chibi ain’t gonna playing second fiddle to anybody.  Mina has dreams and nobody is ever gonna take those dreams away from her.  Minako joined up with the team pretty late, and she felt like an outsider coming in and expecting to just take over this team that was already a well-oiled machine.  Minako really felt like an outsider in the beginning, and with Usagi being revealed as Serenity, Minako had spent so much time by herself and without anybody around her who she could relate to, Minako just wants somebody who’ll pay attention to her and listen.  And that’s what Rei provides in the beginning, somebody who’s an equal to her, a partner she can talk to and who is there to listen and give her attention.
But as their relationship evolves, you have Minako able to get Rei to open up, and Rei to keep Minako feeling alive, and from that baseline I can easily see a relationship blossoming out of there.



I've written Rei/Minako before and I'm actually working on a PGSM!Reinako fic right now for a thing.

For those fanfic writers who are interested, I'm running another "Reinako same prompt fic party." on tumblr.

http://crunchbuttsteak.tumblr.com/post/117091294605/april-may-reinako-same-prompt-fic-party

The prompt is "I can't believe you wore that" and must be 1000-5000 words, and it due on May 13th.

I just....Wow, that's a good song. XD I'm not a hardcore fan of this ship, but whenever it pops up, I do appreciate it. Rei and Minako definitely have a sort of chemistry in a few adaptions. ^^

I don't know what the intentions of the writers were but does anyone else feel like PGSM made Minako and Rei parallel to Haruka and Michiru?

Honestly? I feel like the PGSM writers knew they weren't going to able to do more than the Dark Kingdom arc and so they used thematic elements of later arcs in PGSM.

Hence you have Rei and Minako being the new Haruka and Michiru, Minako being the parallel to the Starlights with the idol/senshi double life, Princess Sailor Moon being the equivalent of Sailor Saturn, Sailor Luna being the 'kid' character in lieu of Chibiusa, and Chibiusa's weird obsession with horses being given to Minako, sorta.

I also love the episode where Usagi is shocked Rei isn't into guys and Rei says she isn't that type and I'm like "what type are you Rei?"
