Boys aren’t forgotten. They’re to be lured with action-filled plots and a testosterone-charged sidekick named Tuxedo.
OH MY GOD
NOBODY CAN GET MAMORU’S NAME RIGHT
also i have no idea why English audiences insisted Mamoru was there to appeal to boys
HE WAS NOT
he was there to appeal to young girls who liked boys
and fantasized about having a miracle romance with a handome rich prince with a car in a suit stealing diamonds and letting you walk all over him
he is 100% aimed towards the boyliking female fantasy and a construction of female gaze
like i’ve only been with one little boy while watching sailor moon but just from that survey JONAH HATED HIM AND FELT HE COULDN’T IDENTIFY WITH HIM so????
nothing in Sailor Moon was designed to appeal to young boys (the creepiness of older guys, arguably some elements, but that’s another discussion) the superhero action aspect is GET THIS ALSO FOR GIRLS BECAUSE GIRLS WANT TO BE HEROES TOO AND NAOKO TAKEUCHI AND HER SUPERIORS ACTUALLY GOT THAT OMG!!! get over it america
