Something that I've often wondered about is whether or not Uranus and Neptune fell in love for the first time as Haruka and Michiru, or if, like Usagi and Mamoru, they had been in love in their past life.

When talking about their past life in the manga, Haruka in particular seems to emphasize the loneliness they felt living apart from everyone else, guarding their isolated stations. Michiru says they weren't allowed to leave their posts and had to watch helplessly from afar as Silver Millennium fell. She says (quoting from the Eternal Edition): "The dominions we each guard are so far apart that by all rights, we never should have met," but it's unclear if she means any combination of them or if she means all three of them. In any case, the manga seems to suggest that Uranus and Neptune at least never met in person, but they probably still knew about each other and they still could have seen each other (via the Deep Sea Mirror, via SailorSkyping on their castles' computers, etc) so a long-distance relationship between them (or even just a secret crush) is still well within the realm of possibility.

As far as the '90s anime and musicals are concerned, I don't really remember their going too deep into Haruka's and Michiru's past lives? Can anyone refresh my memory on that front?

Anywho, my inclination is to say that no, they were not past life lovers and only met and fell in love for the first time in present day Tokyo, but I'm curious as to what you guys think.
Forbidden doesn´t mean they didn´t do it anyway. I mean, how many people have gone 130 km/h in a 120 km/h zone on the motorway? Or how Princess Serenity and Prince Endymion had that affair even if they were not technically supposed to.

God I hope not, making them another “destined couple who were lovers in a previous life” would undermine the entire message of this ship, like I said here:




That being said I doubt this was ever the case anyways since the whole point of the Outers is that they were all alone desolately guarding the Outer Solar System from invaders during Silver Millenium and never managed to come together until this life.
Their Power Guardians replaced them in their posts.

Fun fact: in real life, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto would be more likely to commit suicide than Princess Serenity due to depression issues caused by absolute loneliness and isolation :P
I think the reason the 90s show never dwelved too much into Pluto's backstory in Crystal Tokyo, as well as everyone's life in the Silver Millenium is because it makes the Serenities look like a enslaving matriarchy.
I mean, a child Pluto looking sad while guarding the timespace door surely goes against a lot of human rights conventions. :mudkip:

Neo Queen Serenity in the new timeline is against her Senshi serving her which is why she does everything to end the conflict.

Princess Serenity, Mamorou, looks cute in the bubbles.
If you look at the image carefully, there is an additional bubble and you can see a senshi that resembles Sailor Neptune.

Fans have been talking about this specific scene for decades now.

I dunno, I don't mind the idea of them having been in love in the past. The main difference would be that instead of violating the rules set for them like Endymion and Serenity, they stayed true to their duty despite (possibly) yearning for each other. besides, even baby Pluto had to be introduced to her duty outside the door of time. It's not out of the question to think that the outers met at least once before assuming their roles (even if it wasn't all three at once due to the talisman thing)

Interesting question, and I’m also inclined to say no in past lives; only in current.
