I can't be the only one that's noticed. Mamoru and Saphir look similar, no? And with the new art out for the next part of SMC, Saphir looks more lavendar-y, which makes me think King Endymion.

Spoiler:
 

Just saying. Any thoughts on that?

Yeah he does look like Mamoru. I think it's the hairstyle. Personally I think Saphir looks the worst out of the new designs. It's the hair. Razz

They do look similar but he's not a downright re-colour of Mamoru (one of my friends keeps saying that-it's kind of annoying)

They do. I always thought it was because naoko got bored and just wanted his character to be simple.

They definitely do xD
When I watched the Black Moon season for the first time and saw Saphir I just was like: WTF? Mamoru, why did you join the Black Moon Clan? And why is your hair blue?

But when he was called Saphir, I got it that he's an indivdual person xD
(This confession is so embarrasing xD)

I think drawing distinctive male characters is...not one of Naoko's strong points. XD;; Even after all these years I still get Helios, Kaitou Ace, and Kakeru confused sometimes if I'm looking at just a head shot of the characters in black and white.

I know Mamoru was based off Naoko's ideal image of a man, so it makes sense that she would draw more men who looked very similar. I actually can't believe I never noticed before

My friend thought Mamoru betrayed Usagi and went to the dark side.

When I saw Saphir, I thought he was Endymion's long lost brother that didn't get killed in the past life, and instead joined the Dark Moon. (But then again, I do have weird first impressions because I thought Mamoru was a secret agent spy because of his shades in the first episodes.  )

A post I saw on tumblr:



"I feel a certain connection to him. It’s just… I look at him, and I see my own character model."  #THE FIRST TIME I SAW SAPHIR I THOUGHT IT WAS MAMORU BRAINWASHED AGAIN

When I first saw Saphir, I thought "Did Mamoru have a younger brother or twin brother that we didn't know about and was kept secret until now?"

Saphir does look like Mamoru in a way.  I like it.

Yeah Mamoru and Saphir do look alike and they both look like twin brothers even though they're not biologically related to each other.

It's been a while since I posted in this thread, but I have some extra thoughts.

Clearly Naoko does have a habit of drawing characters with similar features. I feel like it would have been nice if the 90s anime and the manga did what SMC and the musicals did. I feel like those two mediums decided to alter his character design just enough to make Saphir look more original. Does anyone else feel this way?
