Mamoru has never threw a rose in the manga though. Never. By S an SuperS he was completely shafted as a back ground character. They never hide the fact they used him to parody stuff. I know the age of consent in Japan and he is not on the illegal side, but they didn't have a reason to age him up for the anime. Don't get me wrong - the old show is my introduction to the franchise and I think it is great as a story and as character driven show, having amazing flesh out heroes and villains. But for me their treatment of the moon family - Usagi, Mamoru and Chibi-Usa was not the best and these three work better in the manga. The rest of the characters I do prefer the 90s show, although the manga is not as terrible at character development as Crystal - with all the side stories and small personality panels here and there - it does the job. But we are getting off topic. I really hope we will see these designs soon.
Also yeah I hope we see the designs too.
