The always-classy Sailor Star Fighter. For
, in honor of International Blog Against Racism Week
Title is from Seiya's prologue
, from the Sailor Stars singles
: "But my, no, our song is really not a message we're sending to the people of Earth... Princess... We're raising our voices to reach our princess."
Later in the same single, Seiya muses about Usagi: "But is it that as a soldier I was charmed by the power you emit? Or is it that, carrying the heart of a boy, I was charmed by you... "
It's hard to tell what Western terms about gender and sexuality this phrase maps to. Is Seiya trans? Butch? Just plain lesbian? Or maybe this means that, in the alien species to which Seiya belongs, male bodies look like human female bodies. Has anyone written that fic? Because I would love to read it.
