Another thing I love about Usagi and Mamoru’s early meetings is that it’s clear, right from the beginning, that they’re attracted to each other. Usagi’s heart beats faster, her face heats up, and some of that can be attributed to the embarrassment of the situation, but it’s also clear that she just has this instant reaction to him.
Usagi does this with the Sailor Senshi as well, that the connections between them can’t be denied just by the loss of those memories, those feelings are still there and that means she’s instantly attracted to Mamoru as well, there’s SOMETHING there that gets under her skin and makes her face heat up and her heart beat faster.
She loves her friends before she meets them in this life, before she remembers them, and you see the same thing happen with Mamoru. She loves him even before she remembers him, before she really knows him.
I love it for the tropes of shoujo romance, I love that she loves Mamoru SO MUCH that she remembers him across the vast distance they both had to travel to this new life of theirs, I love that she just sees a hot boy on the street and is attracted to him.
But I also love it because that’s Usagi for you. No matter what, you cannot stop her heart from remembering the people she loves and she will love them again, the moment she meets them. Hell, she’ll love them even before she meets them again in this life.
AND UGH NOW I HAVE USAMAMO FEELS AGAIN.
