I've been thinking this for a while and after reading and watching the previews of the new season I have the feeling they will cut the kiss between them.

After reading the interview with the head writer Kobayashi (The one where there was an image of Hotaru.) he mentions he added a pat on the head that was not in the manga but I think he change the kiss for a pat on the head such as the one in act 28 and it seems that that will happen according to the footage.

I may be over analyzing but last time I did it turned out to be correct with 2 arcs in one season.

What do you think will happen, even if they have stated that they will follow the manga I have a feeling that on this they will just leave the flirty parts of Haruka but not kissing.

While so far they seem to have toned down a bit of the darkness of the last two seasons (I'm mainly referring to Usagi's way of killing the daimon's, because there's not much else to go off) I don't think that cutting something like that would happen. To be honest, it seems like Toei is trying to milk as much out of the characters as they can (this can be seen with a Neptune and Uranus ending song and titlecards), and the fans would go absolutely bonkers over the Haruka and Usagi kiss. :lol:

He's talking about the pat on the head in Act 27 Part I in the arcade scene.

There would be a ton of backlash if they removed the kiss. I don't think they're silly enough to do something like that. It's being aired on late night as well, so I don't see what the problem is.

Depends on how far they want to take Usagi and Mamoru's fight. They already dropped her getting worried over him calling her "Usa".

I don't think they would either . But I don't think you should assume just because it s a fan favorite moment in the english speaking fandom. Dosen't mean it s a fan favorite in Asian countries.

I know but that is subjective as well. That reminds me of a shojo manga who had two guys kiss . But the author she forgot she wrote that in the side bar.She end up being surprise at her own manga.

No way. They would never cut such a sshockng scene. It would be an outrage and I know readers of the manga will be waiting on it.

This season is supposed to be mature and with Chiaki's background I dont think she would omit such a scene. To be honest, I think such a scene would get the community buzzing!!!! (& shipping)

Yeah, everything about the presentation of this season seems yuri-friendly, so I'd be really surprised if they cut it out.

I'm concerned that they AREN'T going to cut it. I don't get why anyone likes that scene in the manga. It makes no sense, is just as creepy/predatory as the kiss in Act 4, and it goes nowhere. You can explore Usagi's ~sexual confusion~ without making Haruka cheat on Michiru (with zero fallout) by basically assaulting Usagi.

I really hope they keep it in as it's one of my favorite moments from the manga but I doubt they'll cut it. If anything, Crystal seems to be the adaptation most explicit about the lesbian themes of Sailor Moon we've seen so far. We've already seen the bedroom scene of Haruka and Michiru in the leaked footage and the lyrics in the ending theme song are very explicit about the lesbian themes of the show. Even the opening also seems to have some shouo-ai undertones between Hotaru and Chibi-usa going on and the show seems littered with Utena homages. My only question is if they'll have the kiss as the cliffhanger at the end of Act 28 or if they'll save it for the beginning of Act 29.

Put it this way - If they can show a daughter making out with her own father (brainwashed or not), they can show two girls kissing.

I understand people's problems with the kiss, but as someone who identifies as bi, I deeply appreciated it in the manga, but acknowledge that it's problematic.

If I had complete trust in Crystal, I would hope they'd keep the kiss, but somehow rewrite the circumstances so that it's unequivocally consensual. I don't think that will happen though, but I will be incredibly disappointed if the kiss is removed.

I would hope so. While I dislike this scene, it's about as problematic as Tuxedo Mask kissing a passed out Sailor Moon or Demand forcing a kiss on Usagi. They kept both of those scenes, so they should keep this one too.

I think the recent musical did a good job of exploring Usagi's sexuality without including the kiss but I always appreciated the kiss in spite of the problems with it because the original anime had zero same sex kisses at all and it always felt like the 90s anime was trying to hide that gay people do kiss.

I'm not try being rude,or offensive . But the manga didn't had same sex couple kissing either? Sure Haruka kiss Usagi,but that was just a show of affectionate ? Keep in mind it was 90 s anime

I would rather they cut the kiss and replace it with Haruka kissing Michiru. I didn't like how Haruka basically cheated on Michiru and plus Haruka and Michiru are a better couple anyway and they deserve to have a kiss.
