A VISUAL AID
Okay, see that? Mamoru is teasing Usagi. Not in a mean or insulting way, but a cute way. She’s being super obvious that she has a fucking talking cat and he thinks that’s hilarious.
It’s a small moment BUT A PRETTY IMPORTANT CHARACTERIZATION NOTE because it shows that Mamoru LIKES FUCKING WITH PEOPLE. He’s not 100 percent serious mcbroodingman all the time. It gives him a bit of personality in a very condensed story.
Also a nice characterization note: Usagi recognizes Mamoru (in the most shoujo way possible). This is really important for Usagi because it shows she’s not completely fucking oblivious- she’s just in serious denial.
Andddd when Mamoru officially recognizes Usagi.. Leading to some really good gag faces, which Crystal is sadly lacking. Also Mamoru blurting something out and getting kinda embarrassed adds more range to his character as well- HE’S KIND OF A LOSER, NOT GENERIC MCMANLYMAN
Continued under the cut: REI, NO MAGIC FLYING SHIT, THE SENSHI NOT BEING WIPED OUT IN ONE SHOT, AND NO MAMORU TO THE RESCUE
But hello! Thanks for following me. College is hitting me real hard right now and I barely have time to breathe. Hopefully that’ll change soon.
But for now, hello :)
