    What's up, man? Who are you?

    Sometimes people who criticize the original Sailor Moon make the argument that Sailor Moon isn't an effective superhero because Tuxedo Mask usually swoops in to distract the enemy for her—or, as they usually put it, "is always saving her from everything." Guys.
