Is there a reason the '90's made Mamoru such an asshole?

I don't even think 90s anime Mamo was a jerk during R so much as it was his future self who made one of the stupidest tests of all time, forcing both Usagi and Mamoru into being depressed all while a major new enemy is attacking their city and they are taking care of his brat.

In the first season he was rude but so was Usagi. Usagi was probably the rudest character of all and she gets a free pass. She wasn't only hostile towards some characters, she was very inconsiderate and manipulative. It's true her good qualities outshine the bad ones, but can you imagine being her mother, Ami, Rei, Mako or any other character dealing with her tantrums, mood swings and unreliability on a daily basis?
I agree. Usagi can definitely be a bit manipulative and inconsiderate like when she used Umino to go spy on Mamoru and Rei. Many like to write it off as Usagi just being “curious about dating” or to she’s “worried or looking out for Rei”, but if that’s the case, she wouldn’t need to use and lead Umino on. Then there’s her trying to hook Rei up with Yuichiro when she knows about Rei and Mamoru (which Rei had to remind her). I love Usagi, but she can do wrong too.

Thank you for your opinion. I value your insights. It's messed up how the writers had King Endymion testing his younger self's love for Usagi by breaking them up. He was a huge troll. It would have made more sense for Wiseman to give Mamo visions of Usagi dying.

Yes, I agree that Usagi was very rude. She was the one instigated the banter between herself and Mamoru. Not Mamo! So, I don't think he deserves any bashing for that. I'm throwing salt at her (Usagi) for throwing her test paper without being aware of who was behind her. Not cool, Usa!

Usagi can definitely do wrong, there's no denying that. Her being inconsiderate and manipulative were actual character flaws that should have been addressed by the finale of season one. It was absolutely wrong of her to use Umino like that, then ditch him while they were spending time together. She was his classmate and friend. Imagine how angry and hurt he must felt after what Usagi did to him. Likewise, Rei and Mamoru would be equally upset because Usagi stalked them while they were on their date. Rei would have been furious, she'd yell at Usagi for the latter's spying on the former. Mamoru, on the other hand, would deliver a calm, yet blunt warning to stop.

I agree justice for umino!!!! Usagi get 10 points taken off!!!! Lol Sorry got carried away. Lol Hey should could make it up to him by giving him limited power of crystal Tokyo for one day when it comes to be.

Although what Usagi did was terribly wrong, it can be understandable since jealousy can bring out the worst in some people. You’re right though, she should have at least apologized to Umino and Rei for trying to split up her and Mamoru (though Mamoru probably wouldn’t have mind that ).

Yes, agreed. Jealousy does bring out the worst in people. Usagi's no different.
