Read the manga, it makes so much more sense. Especially the Queen Beryl arc.
And you get stuff like Tuxedo Mask has a personality! Hints that Usagi is bisexual! Also, Usagi also has a personality and it's very likeable! I like the fact she starts as the whiny, crybaby but quickly develops into this figure that will do anything to protect her friends and loved ones, while not the smartest or strongest of the bunch, she's the most determined.
Seriously, I adore the manga. Its shojo crack, but good shojo crack.
