I like the first style the most. I'd fund Sailor V in something closer to that by myself if I could and Venus is my 5th or 6th favorite.

It's a shame fans post and use overstated shots like that in the middle. The Japanese dvds with noise flying everywhere are more watchable than that.

Waiting to re-watch the third. "I waited 2 weeks for this" really kills things doubly. The music is close to the second's to me but that's about it. I'm basically watching the OP and ED hoping something decent happens in between.

Crystal easily. Only oldfag hipsters like the old anime, but it's extremely outdated, has a shittonne of filler and the characters have manfaces.

Never read the manga, but heard it wasn't as good as the old series, which can't be good.

Crystal has the cleanest art style by far, and the story is told far better than it was 20 years ago.

No, we actually don't. Most of the anime was done because the guys at Toei wanted to do it; Naoko was basically roped in to making the manga version of an offshoot of her Sailor V series. Without her, something resembling the SM anime might still have been produced, but without Toei she would have just continued on with Codename:SV and nobody here would be talking about it because it would have remained just a manga that only Japanese girls cared about.

Dude, that's what pretty much everyone was hoping for.

Each one has their charm, but I personally prefer the top. I do love the middle because it has the most heart and charm taken from the manga, while deviating from the source material enough to make it unique. The bottom is an attempt to make a call back to that time and honestly does it poorly, but perhaps that was the intention. The director did say it was aimed at the same fanbase who watched the original but have now grown older. It's reaching for nostalgia while presenting itself in a more romantic, yet blander way.

The manga captures what both the original anime and the remake tried to achieve perfectly and is therefore the best for me.

On the contrary, I think the sterile nature of Crystal is the biggest thing working against it. That and how the character designs are so stiff and uncompromising.

>the story is told far better than it was 20 years ago.

The story maybe, but the supporting senshi have been reduced to archetypes with no real development or unique personality. No one ever watched SM for the story. The endless and varied character interactions were the heart and soul of the franchise.

Ehh. There's really no series with a better plot out there. The characters are an important part of this, but Sailor Moon is basically a cycle of Greek style tragedies, blown up to a large scale. No other anime series does this as well or succeeds at being as epic.
>>
>>123445533
>No other anime series does this as well or succeeds at being as epic.

You need to watch more anime.

The main staying power Sailor Moon has is the characterization and watching for character interactions, that it has to stick to the usual episodic formulae is what makes it nigh unbearable.
>>
>>123445595
I have watched 'more anime'. The episodic formula would almost kill it, but what makes it work is that instead of relying on suspense and "oh no, what if this thing happened *shock*", it is actually enhanced by having dramatic things be set up in ways that you will see coming from miles away.

It is precisely because it gets away from the reliance on the viewer not being able to predict what happens next and instead embraces the gleeful sense of things playing out inevitably, along with its thematic strengths and great direction, that it looses no steam on repeat viewings and is most tragic in the classical sense of the term.
>>
>>123445976
>that it looses no steam on repeat viewings

I'm sorry you really need to watch more anime, I cannot imagine anybody watching Sailor Moon more than once. It has not aged well at all, the overly episodic format weighs on too heavily. And it's not tragic at all.

>>
>>123447631
>If anything, Precia got what she deserved.

Whether she deserved it or not is unrelated to it being tragic, even for Fate's sake it's just sad that she realized it only at the very end. It would have been a lot less tragic for instance if she died without that realization.
>>

It's not unrelated. Tragic would imply that the event is either shocking or unfair. Which her death was neither.

You need to get a better grasp of tragedy, it's not done solely on some scale of what's "right and wrong", losing what you don't realize you have is probably one of the most poignant and well used implement of tragedy.

In general an event needs to be either shocking or unfair to be tragic, but even that's not necessarily sufficient.

>>123447755
>Whether she deserved it or not is unrelated to it being tragic
That's not the case. Different tragedies have different degrees to which their characters are 'guilty' of their actions and choices, but characters cannot be completely innocent and responsible for nothing, nor can they be completely at fault in an utterly unsympathetic and unforgivable way. What IS important, and far more crucial to the tragic response, is that you should NOT feel sad for the events of characters. You may very much care for them in terms of feeling compassion towards their character, but the effect should be to induce joy and satisfaction instead of sadness. It is precisely by twisting events.

I haven't actually watched Nanoha beyond the first few episodes and I don't care about seinen magical girl shows in general. They all feel completely off character wise compared to actual mahou shoujos and i don't enjoy watching them.

You've probably never watched older series when you got old enough to judge it properly, otherwise you would know that "filler" episodes in Sailor Moon are neatly done and don't feel like a filler, art became very good season 3 onwards, and there are no manfaces whatsoever.

I don't even. Are you trying to say that we shouldn't feel sad for her because she might have been slightly deserving of what happened?

>I haven't actually watched Nanoha beyond the first few episodes

Maybe you should then before arguing this, she realized that she had something truly precious only at the very end.
>>
>>123469544
>Are you trying to say that we shouldn't feel sad for her because she might have been slightly deserving of what happened?
In general, or in reference to the specific example I believe you've given? No. I'm certainly not saying you should suspend your sympathetic response in order to instead be satisfied with the idea that someone 'really just deserved it', even for forgivable actions, quite the opposite really. It's just that, specifically, to fully appreciate tragic drama you need to be aware of the various ways a character may be both justified and unjustified in their actions and to see them both as deserving genuine sympathy and, simultaneously, blame, though it's up to the observer as to specifically how they ultimately view and judge the actions.

The whole point of this is to embrace a deep sense of joy and energy, not at the idea that a character got their just desserts, but because a feeling of mutual, unconditional compassion and simultaneous horror at the inherent terror of their decisions, in realizing how morally twisted the events are. In a tragedy (which your example may or may not be), these feelings should overwhelm and overcome any feelings of sadness that might occur otherwise. There need not even be any 'bad' ending as long as these feelings are inspired.

It's a tie between the manga and the original anime for me, mostly because there are different aspects to each style I enjoy. On some level, I hoped Crystal would be a better mix of older versions - follow the manga more closely but still putting in a bit of padding to better develop the characters.

Somehow they sucked the humor out of both the manga and the first anime. Bums me out.

"There is a misconception of tragedy with which I have been struck in review after review, and in many conversations with writers and readers alike. It is the idea that tragedy is of necessity allied to pessimism. Even the dictionary says nothing more about the word than that it means a story with a sad or unhappy ending. This impression is so firmly fixed that I almost hesitate to claim that in truth tragedy implies more optimism in its author than does comedy, and that its final result ought to be the reinforcement of the onlooker's brightest opinions of the human animal." - ARTHUR MILLER
