Hi guys,

I keep seeing a really ridiculous rumour posted on Sailor Moon groups on Social Media. The rumour I keep reading from people is as follows: “Sailor Moon was originally intended to be a hentai, but Naoko’s editor changed it in to Sailor Moon.”

So many people reply and agree to it and say they have heard that or that it’s old news.

I’m sorry but that’s just not true!? (Or is it?)
There is simply no proof to back up this claim. What I always understood was it was originally Sailor V and she changed it to Sailor Moon.

Anyone else ever heard this hentai rumour or have proof of it being true?

The author has always remained on the shoujo genre, I really think Sailormoon was not conceived as a hentai. He certainly could not have published the work on nakayoshi and above all there would have been clear references in the source material (Sailorv's manga, including one shot and sketches).

...I’ve never heard of any rumor like that. Ever, like since becoming involved in the fandom in 2013. Post the receipts because 1. This honestly sounds fascinating and 2. I don’t know how true this sounds
Okay this has the same energy.That other runour that black butler was meant to be yaoi.

This is the most ridiculous thing I have ever read. I have never heard of this rumor. I guess sone troll used the published hentai dojinshis by some of Naoko's assistants as base to spread that. Naoko has done a bunch of one shots as well as illustrations for light novels prior Sailor Moon and she never crossed the line. Nudity in shoujo means purity and she did some suggestive yuri drawings. The concept of the work is explained in detail in the Matterial Collections and neither anakayoshi nor Toei would had been remotely interested in hentai.

it's an untrue stupid rumor from people who know nothing about sailor moon
Could be just someone flame baiting.

There's this one rumor in a :usagi: Facebook group which I'm usually seeing from time to time where they say Crystal :setsuna: being the tallest. Likes to get other moonies triggered.

Who are Naoko's assistants and what have they published?

i just want evidence lol. Screenshots, anything really. OP makes it sound like something that they’ve seen repeatedly but I certainly never have
Omg you actually think I made this whole thing up? Did you really need to call me out twice acting like I’m just trying to start something? My god I’m only trying to start a discussion on this forum that I’ve been a part of for many years. Is that okay???! Can you stop coming for my wig? Why does this have you so triggered?

Here are a few examples of people talking about the rumour it was originally a hentai.

People will believe and say the dumbest crap like saying Sailor Moon was intended for teenagers in Japan, so I can believe people thinking it was originally going to be Hentai.
Even some moonies think the series is "mature" because of its darker plots and homosexual characters. It's just a kid's show that also had an older demographic in mind just like many other cartoons, that's all.

I thought the rumour you would post would be the one where Naoko supposedly said that she created the Sailor Senshi based on the friends she wished she had. Which I couldn't find the original quote.
