Just gonna say it. The lady said no. And she said no again. And he/she (look I don't know what pronoun it prefers, Seiya's a space alien, who knows what freaky genitalia it's hiding?) I don't know what they do on his/her's planet, but on Earth when a lady has a fiancé, she's off-limits, ya creep.

Agreed. No means no period.

Seiya (depending on what you go by) knew Mamoru was dead and did not believe there was any chance he would be coming back but could not tell Usagi. I'm not sure if this makes it better or worse though!

Aliens falling in love with humans is a recurring theme in Sailor Moon, see Fioré.

I don’t think Seiya forced Usagi into anything.

Usagi accepted going out on a date with Seiya.

When Seiya asked Usagi if he was not enough for her, she remained in silence, crying— implying that she clearly loved and missed Mamoru.

Seiya understood that Usagi loved Mamoru and stopped making advances towards her.

The rooftop scene so. They were basically both blaming her for not liking him and using her emotional weakness. This is something I personally could never find anything but creepy. If it was not for this scene, I liked them.

They had better chemistry with Usagi in the 90's anime than Mamoru even though most of that chemistry was just a rehash of Classic's UsaMamo dynamic but there's no denying they are a bit of a creep. No means no buddy, she's not "playing hard to get." Also their whole "Am I not good enough" scene reeked of emotionally manipulative "nice-guy" behavior. It wasn't about you in that moment Seiya, and you shouldn't have made it about you.

Fortunately, they're actually quite the gentle(wo)man in the manga at least, but then that comes at the cost of barely even having a personality besides quietly dutiful and yearning. Still, I would've easily taken the more bland Manga Seiya if it meant we got the focus back on our main Senshi and the overall lore/worldbulding of the season. Manga Stars set the stage for a Galactic wide battle of the very existence of the universe at stake and raised intriguing philosophical questions such as what it means to be a Senshi. ...Whereas Anime Stars we got mostly a romcom love triangle nobody needed or wanted cause everyone knew by now that Mamoru was end-game and no way was Naoko changing that.

Still to be fair, it's not like Seiya is the only creep in the anime, both Prince Demande and the Amazon Trio are all far worse and give Seiya a run for their money in the creepitude department.

Yet, the fandom loves anime Seiya.
