I do quite like how Neptune, undeniably the more traditionally feminine of the two, is the one taking Tux head-on, while Uranus is just restraining Sailor Moon.

 #looks like it’s not a huge fight though #which is a shame #as i’d love to see them to at it
Infinite wish list for 2013:
Michiru vs Mamoru epic battle
actually she’s got the advantage pretty much the whole time
but he tries really hard so it’s still epic
it would be so fun I’m just sayin

 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.

(from fyeahsailormoon)

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.

-Tuxedo Kamen to Sailor Moon

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.

And this MoTD actually has the bright idea to kick the ever-loving crap out of Tuxedo Kamen instead of like, just staring at him like most of them do.  
I MEAN SHIT SHE REALLY KICKED HIS ASS AND THREW OFF OF THE ROOF AND IT LOOKS REALLY BAD like he’s all twisted lying there and Sailor Moon looks vaguely concerned about him (but really she’s focusing on the rest of the action) but by the end of the episode he’s up and walking around so apparently it’s fine.

Oh man, I’m… I’m spamming my dash now but… Yeah. 

As much as I like that the R-break up crams some emotion down anime!Mamoru’s throat I do think it would have been awesome if it went a little differently AND I totally agree with what Adventuresofcomicbookgirl said about her already having gotten along fine without him for ENTIRE AIL&AN ARC!! 

I mean, sure Moonlight Knight was there but again, just in that Tuxedo Kamen nonsensical throw-a-rose way, which, as Adventures pointed out, HE DOES THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE BREAK-UP ARC TOO with pretty usual regularity.

Plus, Sailor Moon can handle stuff by herself if she needs to, but the point (as is often explained to the Outers in S - once even by Mamoru HIMSELF) the point THE POINT is that she doesn’t HAVE TO because she has her friends, her guardians, her senshi, and their power is their friendship.  So.. I never got that whole, “she needs to learn to be by herself” justification because her power is LOVE and love is other people. Including Mamoru.

I also want to clarify to everyone that in the scene I capped above, Usagi and Mamoru are still together - which makes this even more frustrating because he’s not even trying to push her away. It’s just something he’s doing naturally, because that’s who he is (at this point in the series). 

It’s also foreshadowing for his behavior with the dreams.  He’s gonna keep this wall up for a long time, no matter how much he loves her.  And tell himself it’s because he loves her, and not because he’s scared.

THE END OF MY THOUGHTS. (just kidding not even close but I’m sparing you the majority)

and you thought that binder in the video was FAKE?!?!

ps I still really like the r-break up.

I absolutely agree with your analysis!

the point of Sailor Moon is people relying on each other and becoming stronger because of it, not the other way around. I think we have a hard time with that because our own culture is so individualistic, in contrast to the culture this is rooted in? Just one of the many reasons of course. And yeah, Mamoru is actually totally all over that so…

I know it wasn’t post-breakup I was just ranting anyway hahaha

I do really love some of the super emotional scenes in the breakup arc don’t get me wrong! The phonebooth scene will ALWAYS GET ME. I CRIED. As will Mamoru’s manly te-ars. (And then there’s the hilarity of Mamoru’s inability to be any good at pretending he hates Usagi. YOUR MAGINIFICENT MOVE WAS BRILLIANT AS ALWAYS. WAIT I DON’T LOVE YOU” Tsundere by nature. Also: MOTOKI I NEED TO KNOW HOW DO YOU GET A GIRL TO HATE YOU???!!!)

but I would have ultimately liked seeing these emotions a lot more if a different, less cliche and frustrating storyline had surrounded them, and the writers should have been capable of doing that. I really, really have no patience for the breaking up for yer own good bullshit. You see guys doing that SO MUCH to girls in media, taking a woman’s choice away and framing it like it’s somehow noble. (buffyspider-manharrypottertwilight and i LOVE HALF OF THESE THINGS) It’s an alarming message to send. So it was disappointing to me to see it as a part of Sailor Moon and the main reason the R season is one of my least favorites (though I still enjoy it and though I love the manga version with the intensity of a zillion suns).

Mamoru: USAGI! (Actually he’s probably saying “Usako” unless he’s so mad he’s forgetting pet names see this is what you do to me you stupid  translation I don’t KNOW now)
Haruka (smiling as Usagi flushes): Looks like your prince has arrived.
(She whooshes away)
A tear rolls down Usagi’s face
Mamoru (less mad now, concerned): Usagi!
(he hugs her) What’s wrong? What did he do to you?
Usagi: No, it’s nothing like that. (thinking) Why am I crying? I just feel so upset…
(Mamoru continues to hug her, looks grim)

And then Usagi’s boyfriend walks in on this AND EVERYTHING IS AWKWARD
Haruka is like “OH MAN PRINCE CHARMING HAS ARRIVED” basically trollololol and she wooshes away at the speed of light like “oh yeah I guess I do have a girlfriend too though she prolly won’t be so mad”
and Mamoru goes from “OMG SO MAD I COME TO THE PARK TO MEET YOU AND BRING MY BRIEFCASE AND THEN YOU’RE LIKE IN THE ARMS OF SOME PERSON…” to “OMG YER CRYING ARE YOU ALL RIGHT HUG ATTACK” in zero seconds

villains ragging on tuxedo mask is my favorite thing

womanizer outfit xD

Quiet. I don’t want to hear that from you.

I can’t even do ridic commentary on this response Tuxedo Kamen just does it himself. 

Tuxedo Mask: I WILL NOT LET ALLOW ANYONE TO TARNISH A STAR DRENCHED EVENING WITH TASTELESS EVIL…

(Sorry I have to do all his speeches in caps they’re just so amazing)

Tigers Eye: Oh. What’s with the womanizer outfit…?

Tuxedo Mask: Quiet. I don’t want to hear that from you.

There is nothing about this exchange that isn’t gold.

cutest moment of their relationship developing omg

Hello, few not-evil dudes of Sailor Moon. Let’s talk about you for a second.

Sailor Moon is known for being one of the few stories with positive representations of females, which is great because it is. I think, however, it should also be recognized for its rare portrayal of male feminist characters. Yep, I said male feminists. They are there. All over actually, if you look. I noticed something pretty amazing about the (good) guys of Sailor Moon. Pretty much every single one is love with a girl who is either stronger, smarter, or arguably cooler than him. And none of them seem to mind. In fact, they are inspired by their awesome ladies and supportive of them.

Let’s see. It’s a given that Usagi is much stronger than Mamoru, but never once does he go “WAH I’M A GUY WHY DO YOU HAVE MORE POWERS THIS ISN’T RIGHT”. He’s aware of his position and quite comfortable with it, choosing to help where he can, and otherwise making it his duty to be Sailor Moon’s official cheerleader. Chibiusa took on an evil queen, saved Helios’ life and put him back in his body. He, like Mamoru, is always giving her advice and encouragement to come into awareness of her own strength. Motoki and Kakeru are both supportive and take pride in their girlfriends advancing their careers as a archaeologist and astronaut, respectively. Both chose to step back when they believed they were holding their partners back. Ryo looks up to Ami’s intelligence, and Asanuma idolized Makoto’s strength (both qualities that the girls were usually ostracized for). Artemis, Umino, and Yuichiro are not insecure about, scared away from, or resentful about loving girls with stronger personalities or better social standing than their own.

Nice. There is some serious collective awesome here. How often do you see this type of representation of males, ever? Let’s just add this to the infinite list of reasons I will always love Sailor Moon.

On a side note, I would be a little too happy if everyone in this set was looking up, down, and around at each other a la The Brady Bunch. Teehee.
