Doc did you know the SuperS movie was at one point going to be centered on Michiru and Haruka? Ikuhara pitched an idea for the movie that involved them waking up some god of Neptune somewhere called The End of the World. It was approved but it just never came together.
I’ve heard that a couple times!
On its face, obviously, it sounds excellent and I am so mad I never got an entire movie about them, after they were ignored the entire season so Chibs could fuck a horse. Not about it.
But based on everything I’ve heard about the plans for it, I’m pretty glad it never materialized. I have learned that hard way that not ALL Harumichi content is GOOD Harumichi content. Apparently the idea for it was that Michiru would be magically kidnapped a la Mamoru or some bullshit and be locked away Sleeping Beauty style in a tower and Haruka has to come rescue her by Breaking All The Rules or something and Usagi has to stop her to ~save the world~ and I’m sure there would have been a magical asspull where Usagi got to save both Michiru and the world by believing really hard.
Anyway yeah, not really here for it—what I’ve always enjoyed about Sailor Moon is how mostly it flips the script and Michiru is the one saving Haruka.
