I cannot be the only one that despised rei/sailor mars in the beginning seasons. she’d just attack usagi for no reason at all, and then gets upset when usagi says something back. i understand that usagi is a bit irresponsible and crybaby-ish for her age but still. my girl literally has such a image to maintain, having to carry such a secret, and hell, having such a responsibility at like 14/15 plus not to mention constantly saving the world. and i’m not saying all the sailors don’t go through this too but usagi is like the front and center and has more responsibilities ext. what im to say is that usagi is under such stress and having rei attack her for it so very often is just not needed for usagi
What's on your mind?
Ok, so I know I’m going to have those that disagree with me on this one, but when it comes to comparing Seiya to Mamoru, as both a character in general and as a love interest for Usagi, Seiya comes out on top in every way. Now, I know a lot of people don’t like Seiya because he tried to hook up with Usagi when she was with Mamoru, but from his point of view, Mamoru had abandoned Usagi and moved on without telling her, and Usagi just couldn’t accept that, which is understandable considering the circumstances. So now that that’s out of the way, let’s get move onto why Seiya is better in every way.
First is character-wise. I’m sorry to say it, but Mamoru doesn’t really do anything. He’s just kind of in the background all the time, or is a plot device to move the story along, which makes him rather one-dimensional and not that interesting (both as Mamoru and Tuxedo Mask). This is in contrast to Seiya, who is much more involved and far more interesting as a character, and has a much better personality. And if we’re going by the anime version of Seiya (which I do), his gender-fluidity adds an aspect to Seiya’s character that’s unique and interesting. Personality-wise too, he’s much more suitable for Usagi, as the two are very alike and can relate to and understand each other very well, not just as great friends, but as love interests as well, whereas Mamoru is really just kind of… there, and all Usagi does is fawn over him. When it comes to Seiya and Usagi, it’s a trope that falls under the category of being in love with your best friend. Their relationship is better than Usagi and Mamoru’s, as friends, love interests, and comrades in arms.
And this is one of the biggest factors in all this. Who they each fell in love with. I have to be honest, I am not a fan of the destined lovers or the reincarnated lovers trope. I know some people see it as being very romantic, where their love transcends time, space, and lifetimes, but to me, that kind of love has always felt kind of… fake (not fake as in unrealistic, fake as in phony). Because their love doesn’t develop naturally, it’s inherited from their past selves, from someone they no longer are, even if they regain their memories of who they were in the past. They have no choice in the matter, and their feelings don't develop, they just appear out of think air because of who they are before, and it has no bearing on who they are now, which almost makes it feel like brainwashing, or a love spell suddenly cast on the person. Usagi and Mamoru may have regained their memories of being Serenity and Endymion, but even if their personalities are similar, that’s not who they are anymore, they’re not that person. Different events have shaped their lives into different people, but then something from their past is just inherited. So yeah, their love feels fake. In fact, if you think about it, both Usagi and Mamoru showed no interest in each other until they regained their memories of their past (with the exception of Usagi thinking Mamoru is cute and fan-girling over Tuxedo Mask), and they both even seemed to find the other annoying most of the time (though Mamoru found her to be amusing), but neither were interested in the other romantically. But then once their past memories return, boom, they're madly in love. But Usagi and Mamoru aren’t in love with each other, Serenity and Endymion are, and the two of them simply inherited those feelings. Like I said, fake, and forced.
This is in contrast to Seiya and Usagi. Seiya’s feelings for Usagi weren’t inherited, he falls for her own his own. He develops an interest and attraction to her at first sight,m yes, but he falls for her over time as his feelings develop and he gets to know her. This makes his feelings more real, more sincere, and more genuine. What more, he falls for her, Usagi, as exactly as she is, flaws and all. Not Sailor Moon, not Princess Serenity, but simply Usagi, which also makes his feelings all the more real. And the same goes for Usagi, because despite being in love with Mamoru, she does indeed develop feelings for Seiya, pretty strong ones too. And not for Seiya the famous singer and member of the Three Starlights, or Sailor Star Fighter, but simply Seiya, as he is, flaws and all. Their alter egos are just add-ons to who they are, but it’s not WHO they are. Not like with Usagi and Mamoru. In fact, it’s highly plausible that had Usagi not found out that Mamrou had been killed by Galaxia that she would have ended up getting together with Seiya. In fact, you can even argue that what really prevented her from even considering Seiya as a love interest was Chibiusa and her and Mamoru knowing of their future together, so she never even considered anyone else as a love interest. But even then, she still clearly develops feelings for Seiya, even if she doesn’t fully realize it herself. But the second Mamoru is back, she’s so hypnotized by him, she is completely blind to not only the feelings she has for Seiya, but also his very obvious feelings for her to the point where she doesn’t even register his confession. And to be honest, that kind of obsession in a person really isn’t that healthy, no matter how much you love a person.
So I’m sorry to all the Usagi/Mamoru shippers, but when it comes down to comparing Seiya to Mamoru, Seiya is not only better and more interesting character and love interest, but his and Usagi’s feelings for each other are also more genuine, and their story is more interesting and all around better and more suitable for each other.
