Top Ten Reasons to get into Sailor Moon- Tuxedo Mask.
Yo, hear me out. Are you tired of ladies always getting held hostage so their man can save them? Are you tired of seeing the same old love story with the powerful man taking lead while his less powerful girlfriend supports him? MAn, wouldn’t it be a refreshing change to see the guy have to do that for once? Are you tired of seeing guys resenting their girlfriends for being more powerful? Can’t a guy not do that? Gosh, can’t there be a one guy to provide dashing fanservice and swoop in to support and help a bunch of girls kick ass and compliment them on the beauty of their teamwork and friendship?
Or maybe you’ve just thought “oh boy would it be hilariously awesome if some guy just decided to fight evil in a dinner suit and top hat, throw roses at monsters and yells things like “TEACH THEM THE ABCS OF JUSTICE” at the hero.” Also what if he’s really rich and tall, dark and handsome and an orphan like Batman and really adores children and cats and dedicates himself to raising his ridiculously pink daughter.
Well baby your oddly specific wishes have been answered, welcome to the mindblowing experience of Tuxedo Kamen/Mask.
Whether he is the supportive slightly insecure sweetheart from the manga who goes on an interesting journey to find his true place in the world but will never stop talking about how Sailor Moon can do anything and she is everything to him and he is there for her, or he’s the ridiculous personified camp machine from the anime, Tuxedo Mask is a fun character in his own right who subverts gender roles and makes us swoon with his dashing heroics and laugh at his ridic dorkiness.
I believe in you. Many live and souls have been saved with that power. You must believe in yourself, follow your path without fear. When you’re uncertain or worried, I’ll be there for you. I may have no power, but you called me here to you. If you need me…I’ll give you the strength of my soul. I live to be there for you, so you must fight with confidence.

Also by Mamoru:
“I only use a rose as a last resort. I am troubled by copycats!
I will not allow anyone to tarnish a star-drenched evening with tasteless evil. I am just one stem of a rose that cuts through evil.
Your maginificent move was brilliant as always, Sailor Moon!
A supermarket is the people’s fountain of health! The fresh vegatables of the open country and the melt in your mouth good thinly sliced meat are mad!”
I could go on forever basically.
