Does anyone else get the feeling that Michiru is a bisexual with a preference for women rather than gay?

To me it seemed like she showed A LITTLE BIT of interest in Mamoru in the 90's anime.

EDIT: And if she was then that would be great because most bisexual women in fiction seem to either have a preference for men or 50%-50%.

DISCLAIMER: I'm gay myself so no need for anyone to suspect me of 'straight-washing' her.

In the Cloverway dub where I veer back and forth between mentally replacing every instance of the word cousin with partner in my head and pretending “cousins” is a cover the girls use to throw off homophobes in universe, yes Michelle is bisexual. She’s dated two men and swoons over Darien.

In the manga and Japanese anime? Ehhh I don’t recall her showing any attraction to men. She could be bisexual but she could also just be a lipstick lesbian. It’s possible that she’s the type who just appreciates beauty regardless of gender (similar to Kunzite who is canonically bi or pan in the anime)

I don't really know if I'd count the dic and cloverway dubs as apart of the actual sailor moon story. They've edited and changed so much that I actually see it as more of it's own thing.

I always had a feeling that Michiru is moneysexual with a strong preference for owners of expensive sportcars. Gender/looks/morals/everything else is of secondary importance. The same applies to all other females in the series.
As a bit of a gold-digger myself I'm not sure how to react to that :D

Y'all are so obsessed with making everyone bisexual in this series. Like it's a kids show from Japan, out of all the things they put into the show do you really think they were like "oh yeah, lets make it seem like this character is bisexual"? They barely handled gay themes respectfully.

I have OCD, and get easily overwhelmed by trying to "decide" who is gay or bi or straight. Typically, I imagine characters whose names start with an odd-numbered letter as being bi or pan, so that includes Michiru. Of course, that does make bisexuality and pansexuality far more common in fictional worlds than they are in real life, but eh, whatever.
