Mat is the primary caretaker for a child I mean I barely trust him with an army and now this
I wrote earlier about the uniqueness of Kunzite’s attacks in Sailor Moon Classic: how he neutralizes his opponents by luring them into an engineered environment, an “inner space” that is, in an uncanny way, an extension of himself. His magic, I argued, is a devouring magic: its modus operandi is to surround and enclose, to trap and encircle, to swallow and crush.
So focused was I on the offensive, monstrous aspects of this M.O. that I failed to notice its most poignant manifestation.
He does it to Zoisite.
Play Zoi’s death scene in your head. You know how it goes. Expiring on his stone bier, Zoisite asks Kunzite to help him “die pretty.” It’s a fairly opened-ended request that could be met in a number of ways, and Kunzite obliges by creating an illusion. Flowers. Light. A rain of blossoms. Cue the cheesy tableau and the goodbye tears.
But wait, we missed a step. Before he makes the flowers, Kunzite does something else: he draws his cape over Zoisite’s head. The illusion itself — the flowers, the light, the falling blossoms — takes place beneath the cape. It is, in other words, yet another of Kunzite’s engineered spaces.
It’s a touching inversion of his signature move. Where elsewhere he attacks creatures of light by sealing them in a prison of darkness, here he enfolds a creature of the dark inside a world of light. Kunzite encloses Zoisite.
It also lends an uncanny doubleness to the scene. For while Kunzite is, in a sense, with Zoisite in the illusory bower (folding his arms about the boy in a physical echo of the greater containment), he is also outside— in the dark, holding the cape, creating a magical environment that ultimately cannot be sustained.
And that, of course, is the saddest part of all. No matter how many layers deep his embrace may be, there is no way Kunzite can hold on to Zoisite. At the end of the scene, the cape flies upward: the illusion disperses, and there is nothing underneath.
