Sailor Moon:

so a few things

So, a lot of things people seem to misinterpret in Sailor Moon is the whole Usagi/Chibiusa/Mamoru triangle thing

Now we’re getting into the jealousy territory.

Right, so as I said, Usagi and Mamoru’s relationship is barely off the ground,

Also recall how much stress Usagi is under.

Things get hot and heavy as Mamoru assures Usagi he only wants her

And basically this is the realization that just hit Usagi

See, here Usagi admits she knows she’s being irrational and she understands that Mamoru would feel protective of his child

And so we have Chibusa go over her hardships.

Chibiusa is majorly insecure that she’ll never be able to live up to her mother
