WHY ARE YOU MAKING MY FEELS PLACE ALL HURTY LIKE THIS?
STOP PUNCHING ME IN THE FEELINGS.
As if Usagi’s pleading wasn’t enough. As if Usagi hearing Mamoru’s song from earlier about believing in him wasn’t enough. As if having to force herself up to cut him down wasn’t enough. As if Usagi’s suicide and soft voice about how they’d see each other again, that he’s the only one she’ll ever love wasn’t enough.
No, then they go and pull this shit.
Where the Sailor Senshi are crying that they couldn’t save her AGAIN, that they failed to protect her and the same thing happened all over again, that she killed herself in front of them.
And THEN the Shitennou are just as distraught about it. They had only JUST found their Prince again! They didn’t even have all the time that the Sailor Senshi did, they only had a few days (and probably less) of having their Prince back.
ALL OF THIS HURTS, IT SUCKS FOR EVERYONE, WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS, WHY CAN’T EVERYONE JUST BE FLUFFY BUNNIES AND RAINBOWS AND SUNSHINE ALL THE TIME?
Sailor Moon’s voice in this scene is just so soft and sad.
This is all she can think to do, that her despair has gripped her so tightly and she just can’t bear it anymore, that she has to rise up and kill him, fully planning to kill herself next. And that’s all she can think to do.
Because they’ll meet each other again in the next lifetime, they’ll fall in love again, because he is the only one she’ll ever love.
And I just.
Oh, my darling usagi. She’s a little stronger now, but not strong enough to fight through this without giving up. She believes they’ll have a second chance again, that they’ll meet and fall in love again, she believes in their future, and that’s so much more than Princess Serenity had.
This is a step foward for Usagi, even if she’s still turning that sword on herself in a moment. That she believes they’ll get another chance, that they can still find something good again eventually, even if it’s not right now.
But also: BAWWWW, STOP PUNCHING ME IN THE FEELINGS, SHOW.
