Rei: But you know, Minako at times like this sure is powerful…

I think it’s interesting that while the other girls obviously do NOT approve of Minako lying to the people she’s dating, they also admire how confidently Minako goes after what she wants, and how, I guess, self-possessed she is? I think this episode does a good job of showing that the way Minako is unashamed in pursuing her desires and does things her own way is a good thing, it’s the part where she’s not being honest with the people she’s dating is bad. It would be fine if she was dating two guys, they just have to KNOW that she’s doing that and be okay with it. Of course, Tiger and Hawk do know, but she doesn’t know that.
