I picked up major homophobic vibes from the decision to allow men to attend the SMC premiere event only if accompanied by a woman. I get that this is about stopping gross otaku guys from harassing women but as a gay man, I don’t see why other gay men can’t attend unless they drag a woman with them. My partner and I have been Sailor Moon fans since our school days so what’s the problem? What about trans women? Are they basing gender on looks? This seems so problematic and foolish.

I really don’t think that was their intention at all. A lot of people have compared it to the “brony” situation for My Little Pony, where a fanbase of adult men have basically started sucking the fun away from the intended audience - young girls - and since Sailor Moon has a strong potential for the “gross otaku guys” as a fanbase (check the Christmas special segment for the show back around the time the R movie was released - basically just men in the audience), they pretty much erred on the side of caution. I don’t know what they based gender on, so I’m just making an assumption, but I really doubt they were being homophobic. This is Sailor Moon, after all, which is hardly a homophobic show.

You are not alone, OP. He has the best voice, too.
I adore this series. I actually adore any series that deals with mythology/spirituality/folklore/the like.
“Someone I know saw some pictures of my Disney collection and called it “scary,” adding that no guy would ever want to date me because of it. If that’s the case, then bring it on. I love my Disney merchandise, and if someone thinks I’m unworthy of love because of it, then I wouldn’t want what they call love anyway.”

“Me… I would risk my life for my two friends. I didn’t realize it until just now, but with all my heart, I want to save these two. I would give my life to save my friends. The time means nothing to the heart, even if our time together is short… even if I only know so little about them… it only means I have more to look forward to in getting to know them. My heart is set on fighting alongside them.”
