Parallels in Sailor Moon:
Princess Serenity using the Silver Crystal and the combined powers of the Inner Senshi to defeat Queen Beryl in season one, versus Princess Serenity using the Silver Crystal and the combined powers of the Inner Senshi in Sailor Moon R: The Movie.
GAH I LOVE THIS.
Usagi is just SO SHOCKED. She doesn’t even know what to say.
But Mamoru? He’s HAPPY. He’s so happy that Usagi and Sailor Moon turned out to be the same person, because he had feelings for them both. Considering his rough childhood and his loneliness that he endured through adulthood, this is probably the happiest moment of his life to date.
AND ZOISITE IS ABOUT TO TAKE A GIANT SHIT ON IT. AND I CAN’T HANDLE IT. JUST LET MY BABIES BE HAPPY OKAY.
OMG. THIS SCENE.
She admits that she’s worried about him, and then he is just so shock and taken aback. It’s like he can’t believe that the girl he’s falling for might actually care about him, too.
I can’t handle this ship.
Okay, I freaking love this scene.
Some fans argue that Mamoru and Usagi only love each other because of their past lives as Endymion and Serenity.
But look at them here. They have no idea who they really are. Usagi has no idea she’s the princess or that Mamoru is Tuxedo Mask, and vice versa for him. But she approaches him and tries to be friendly with him. And then they tease each other. And then he basically tells her that he likes her just the way he is.
This scene just convinces me that even if they weren’t the prince and princess, that they’d love each other anyway.
