Usagi Tsukino and Mamoru Chiba are the great love story ofSailor Moon. The two are literally destined to be together before they even meet on the show, having been reincarnated from lovers who lived together in the Moon Kingdom a millennium ago.
But despite this fate, we don'tAlwayslove them together, and Usagi has so many other potential love interests that we'd love to see her romance, and some of them look even better than Usagi and Mamoru ever were. Here are 10 people Usagi should be with instead of Mamoru.
CBR VIDEO OF THE DAY
10 Motoki Furuhata
We all remember Usagi's first and most enduring crush, Motoki Furuhata, better known as Andrew in the original English dub. Motoki is the manager of the arcade Usagi frequents. A blond high schooler, he treats Usagi with the teasing affection an older brother might show a little sister. Usagi often goes to the arcade, not only to play her beloved Sailor V game, but also to spend time with Motoki, who is always friendly towards her and seems to like her, rightly so, eh she is.
9 Rei Hino
We all know that Usagi is practically a virgin throughout the series, but there's no denying that she often gets distracted by a pretty girl. King is no exception; When she first sees her, she can't help but tell herself how beautiful she is.

Even after Rei plants a ward against evil on her forehead and their relationship becomes much more contentious, with the two constantly yelling and cursing at each other, the affection behind it all is clear and feels like the beginnings of a romance in development.
8 Gurio Umino
Umino is a close childhood friend of Usagi and Naru and attends the same school as them. In the anime, Umino has a crush on Usagi and often hangs out with her, flirts and asks her out. Usagi usually dismisses him because he is a nerd and wears huge glasses. Also, he has some pretty silly hobbies. But we're really crazy about childhood friendships that turn into romance, and this is definitely a relationship that could have used a little TLC. Perhaps Usagi could have seen more in that friendship.
7 Minako Aino
Usagi idolized himMinakobecause even before meeting her when she was still acting as Sailor V. Usagi followed her comings and goings on the news, playing her arcade game and doing her best to keep up with the latest news.

When they finally meet and Minako is revealed to be Sailor Venus, the two girls couldn't have more in common and often end up huddled together in various schemes with their heads bent together. The two girls share a shared experience of being the first Girl Scouts, and their bond from the Moon Kingdom days is incredibly strong.
We had to add a few villains to this list, especially since so many of them are hot. Ail is one half of a pair of alien twins who come to Earth to drain its energy. Ail and An go to Usagi's school, where they dress like students, and Ail immediately falls in love with Usagi. Who can really blame you? Their flirting is absolutely charming, even though Usagi is in a relationship with Mamoru at this point. Ail is so considerate and flattering that evenUsthought Usagi should dump Mamoru to be with him.
Koan is one of the Spectral Sisters of the Shadowmoon Clan. She looks more like Usagi, with her big head buns, almost like she's an inversion of Sailor Moon (which makes sense given the "Black Moon Clan").
She has similar powers and personality to Sailor Mars, making her an even better partner for Usagi considering Rei and Usagi have such good chemistry. Sailor Moon first uses her Moon Crystal Power technique on Koan to free her from the Black Moon Clan's clutches and let her start a new life. If that's not the basis of a novel, we don't know what is.
4 Haruka Tenoh
Haruka has a pretty intense relationship with Michiru, and to be honest, we put them together pretty hard. But other than that, when we first meet Haruka, her flirtations are with Usagi.intensive. At this point, Usagi also has a pretty serious relationship with Mamoru, and even she isn't entirely convinced that she doesn't want to say goodbye to him for Haruka. Who can blame her? Haruka is super handsome, drives a great car, and is incredibly attentive to Usagi, what we know as Mamoru.nowhen he and Usagi met.
We know we're involving a lot of inner sense here, but bear with us. Part of the reason the Sailor Scout relationships are so special is because Usagi's relationships with each of them, which she formed before she even knew they were Scouts, are so sweet. Makoto is no different.

When Makoto transferred to Usagi's school, many of her classmates weren't very nice to her because she was too tall and looked too different. Usagi saw the beauty and kindness in her and when Makoto offered to share his lunch with her, her heart was stolen. We want to see Makoto cooking forever together in a little house and Usagi getting drunk.
2 Seiya Kou
Seiya Kou is one of the Sailor Star Fighters. A gender fluid characteron anime(where he is a man when he is not a Sailor Scout and a woman when she is), Seiya is always a woman in the manga. But regardless of gender, Seiya's feelings for Usagi are intense. Seiya recognizes Usagi the moment he sees her from his past lives, and he becomes incredibly protective of her, refusing to even let his teammates help protect her. Seiya loves Usagi so much that when she desperately searches for Mamoru, he knows he has to because it would make her happy. That's true love, wanting the best for you, and we would have loved to see a universe where their relationship could have taken place.
1 This is Mizuno
Last but not least,This is Mizuno. Ami is the first Sailor Scout to awaken after Sailor Moon, which means she and Usagi have a special bond. Ami was quite misunderstood at her school, and as a shy and quiet person who gets very good grades, her peers often think of her as a snob. As always, Usagi saw something deeper in Ami and understood that there was a sweet and caring person inside her. Their relationship is sweet and understanding, from Usagi as a friend full of unrequited love and Ami as an extremely loyal person who will follow Usagi everywhere. To us, it feels like a love story.
