Hello everyone.

I'm new here and I don't intend to be on here a lot, but I decided to create an account because I needed a second opinion and I didn't know where else to turn.

I should probably explain a few things. I'm a huge Sailor Moon fan (have been since I was a kid) with my favorite season being SuperS. Yes, I know there's a lot of problems with it, but I don't think it's as bad as people make it out to be.

Anyway, that brings up the reason I'm here. While my favorite Sailor Moon pair is Usagi/Mamoru, I also really like Chibiusa x Helios in all incarnations...which brings me to a bit of a problem. I've been starting to wonder recently if their romance is...well...problematic?

I know this issue isn't in the manga, because Chibiusa is over 900 years old. But in the original series, Chibiusa is only 8-9 and (if I remember right) Helios has been around since the Silver Millenium. So would that technically mean their relationship in SuperS is pedophilic?

I only ask because (like most sane people) I don't support pedophilia. But I love their relationship (and have so since I was young) so I'm starting to wonder if that makes me a hypocrite and a bad person? (I have an anxiety in case you couldn't tell.)

I'm guess what I'm trying to ask is this; Is Chibiusa x Helios problematic in SuperS? And if it is, is it okay for me to like it (in a totally G-Rated way)?

Wait, for real?

Edit: Okay, I just skimmed through the R Season Memorial and yeah she is (apparently) 900 years old, too. I'm kinda shocked that doesn't come up more often. Although TBF, if she was in a May-December Romance with Helios, it probably would've been included on the TvTropes page for Chibiusa (it isn't).

So yeah, I guess that answers my question.

Thanks.

I've always been accepting of it, though I am curious as to how it works. If Chibiusa has the body and mentality of a child does that mean she got held back, or has she just been repeating the same grade over and over?

It's one of those things that doesn't make much sense but makes for great story fodder (at least for me).

Oh yeah, it would.

She does mention something about being held back forever in elementary in the R Season Memorial, so I guess it's canon?

Helios and Chibiusa's relationship is not "pedophilic" Helios like Chibiusa is fairly old in terms of years but has atleast for the time being stayed as a young male child. Again what I would say is stop worrying about what certain "morality police" would tell you in terms of fictional pairings especially since this pairing isn't pedophilic anyways but features two young children albeit long lived and not aged to being teens or adults. Especially since these same people have some darker skeletons in their closets or in the same breath defend certain ideologies and religions that allow for things like pedophilia and other unsavory things. It makes me think of this game con owner who banned games that "sexualized women" but in his own computer had tons of child porn featuring little boys and no I am not talking about drawn porn either but porn featuring little male children getting raped.

Oh my God!

I sure the guy got the book thrown at him!

Back to the topic at hand, though thank you. I admit, I get anxious very easy and while I know a lot about this franchise, I'm not an expert. So I appreciate all you giving me peace of mind on this subject.
