Day 7: Your First Anime Crush – Tuxedo Mask, or Mamoru Chiba, from Sailor Moon

I’m sure this comes to no surprise. As I mentioned on Day 1, Sailor Moon was my very first anime. As it goes, with most female and some male anime fans, Tuxedo Mask was my first crush.

I remember being a wee one and dreaming that I was Usagi (or Serena in the American version) and being wooed by “Darien”. Whether he was under his guise as Tuxedo Mask, his student self  and especially his true form, Prince Endymion, this gal was smitten hard. He was always there when Usagi needed him whenever she was fighting her villains and even though he teased her, he was truly in love.

In 2014, Sailor Moon had received a reboot and the characters received some upgrades. Of course, this means Mamo-chan would be drawn in high-def.

I’m 99% sure that he is the reason I am obsessed with black hair and blue eyes.
