I am not in my early twenties any more and I like Seiya a lot. In
anime he has to be about sixteen or seventeen because he attends the
class as Usagi. His is a very cheerful character, and being with him is
always a lot of fun. Think of the mischief he does at the lake where
girls were camping. He is good at sports, a great vocalist and he has a
heart. For ChibiChibi he is the best "elder brother" she could have. He
work very hard for his aims, he is sweet and a good dancer at discos,
likes someone he shows his feelings clearly.
Considering all these positive aspects of his personality, I think
would be a great boyfriend for any teenage girl. He is the perfect
for a boy group idol; his personality has no failures. However my
for him have a motherly touch - he is a cute boy.
Mamoru doesn't seem to be so good at sports (he only does a bit of
in the anime). Most of the time he is working with his computer or
somewhere reading a book. Being with him is not so much fun; we don't
laughing a lot. You cannot call him a very romantic person. Does he
write a love letter to Usagi or does he give her flowers? He has been
target of many villains who twisted his personality and brainwashed him
the manga more often than in the anime). He is silent, serious and does
show his feelings very often. In contrast to Seiya, Mamoru is not good
singing and we never watch him dancing in a disco, he is no famous
Considering all these not so positive aspects of his personality, I
think he is the ideal boyfriend for many teenage girls. A lot of young
would get bored when being with him.
When I look at him, I see someone who will listen to me when I have
it would be great to talk to him, to discuss various topics because he
wide range of interests and a lot of knowledge. I see someone who takes
care of his future daughter and someone who is working hard for his
the day when he will be king and will have lots of responsibilities and
tiring duties. I see someone who has been very lonely for a long time
life, someone that has matured early in his life because of his
Mamoru is not a cute boy like Seiya.
Mamoru is handsome, attractive, sometimes irritating and a challenge.
Mamoru is a man, and he would be an ideal husband for many young
especially for an emotional young airhead with lots of dreams who can
him up and make him laugh more often. When I think of him, my feelings
have a motherly touch at all.
Reading the comments we got for our discussion who the better couple
Usagi and Mamoru or Usagi and Seiya, I got the feeling there are many
Seiya fans out there in the web than Mamoru fans.
It is not fair that many younger fans ignore the good points of
is not fair that he is disliked for being manipulated by villains.
Neptune and ChibiUsa and even Mercury were also manipulated and just
no villain ever tried to manipulate the StarLights, it doesn't mean

can't be everyone's idol; he is too quiet and too less cheerful for
powers he was given as Tuxedo Kamen are weaker than the powers of the
StarLights', but nevertheless they do their job just as Chibimoon's
and Mercury's defensive skills.
Just because he is not used to show his feelings more openly, it is
to say that he doesn't love Usagi as much as Seiya does.
Both are great characters but maybe it is my age, (as a teenager I
have cheered for a boy group idol like Seiya too) because I would
