My respect for her really went up just now.

Wellp, toei finally did it. They actually animated something that isn't precure that doesn't look like shit.

This looks nothing like previous Crystal. No QUALITY here. it looks great.

Crystal S1 and 2 had zero budget. It was an ONA with no sponsors.

reason for CG = they need a whole bunch of stock sequences + dynamic camera + animating on 1s + sfx

Wasn't that great. Is was a faithful adaptation, but the original anime's additions and stuff made it a hell of a lot more watchable and entertaining.

>Toei actually accepted criticism and listened to the fans to make a better product?
Sailor Moon fans are older and more demanding than the little girls watching Precure.

The merchandise is more expensive, also.
>>
It was great, love the new transformations.
>>
Shit this actually looks like effort was put in. The character model look like an update of the 1992 anime with a bit of Precure thrown in. And the writing is a bit better with the comedy being back. It's not ultra serious and dramatic as it was but a good balance of what a magical girl story is.
>>

I hope they keep adding silly moments. It helps to get the right mood going.

>>139609149
yeah I loved the new transformations too.
I just hope they don't really do another group transformation like that because it took way too long.

Just finished episode and dat ending! Fuck I love the song and the imagery. Is Toei getting their shit together? Now will they put more effort into Tri and Super? Damn this whole thing felt like looking at an 90s anime with a modern facelift. Good job Toei and the preview looks great as well.

It still baffling how she was more popular than Usagi even though they were basically the same, and even with combined popularity in canon, they aren't all that popular among the boys.

In fact, all the girls, minus Mercury, were all boy crazy.

So she actually told Toei to quit jewing on Sailor Moon?

Everyone knows Toei quickly made a Sailor Moon anime so they could keep the rights to a Sailor Moon anime adaption which is a similar contract Sony has with the Spider Man property.

If Sony doesn't do anything with Spider Man for a significant number of years, the rights to Spider Man go back to Marvel.

I feel like Toei had a similar contract.

It's Sailor Moon Crystal, it's a new Sailor Moon series that started in 2014. It's a faithful adaptation of the manga (since the original 90s anime differed from the manga in many respects)

Today the first episode of Crystal's 3rd season aired (the Death Busters/Infinity arc)

One thing I really liked was how the people in the background weren't carbon copies like the first two seasons, they actually had some kind of interaction and didn't just disappear once the fighting starts

I don't think a single person in the entire world thought that it would be.
Although I suppose that the same goes for... every other show made in the last decade.
>>
>>139620565
Because if they make something that's almost but not quite identical to the 90s anime they can market it as a new series without having to do barely any writing or character design. Also this show is 16:9 instead of 4:3. Kids these days don't understand watching things with letterboxing.

>I think she's a decent director at least.

Her work on the 2nd and 3rd seasons of Nodame Cantabile where mediocre. She got fired from directing Hanasakeru Seishounen cause she was doing such a bad job it pissed off all the fans of the manga. Did anyone like how Higurashi or Umineko series turned out? Junjou Romantica is a fucking joke.

The one series I can honestly say I loved the anime for was Otome Youkai Zakuro (Season 2 fucking never). Golden Time was OKAY, not sure if Kon was to blame or just the source material there though.

Chiaki Kon does not have a great track record.

I can't imagine how it'd be if you've never seen anything related to sailor moon if you want to jump right into season 3...

I love how they give Usagi treatment in this episode, she is not too serious like in the S1 & S2 but also not overtly ridiculous like the original anime.

Also related to >>139611041 comment, she is not that boy crazy like the original anime anymore, just look at her mild reaction when meet with Haruka compared to the 90's anime >>139614419

>>139630130
Yeah, I like how they balanced out her mature side and childish side. Though I do miss me some good, crazy Usagi sometimes.
>>
>>139620180
that was fucking hilarious when it happened.
It's like the writers knew how dumb the idea was to do something like a romance that never happened in the original manga, so they just wanted to get rid of it as soon as possible

I mean, as someone who really can't get into SoL anime, Crystal is about as good as I'm going to get. No matter how good the 90s anime was, I just don't have the time or patience to sit through 100+ monster of the week episodes.
>>
>>139631475
I really enjoyed watching the 90's anime.
It's not even nostalgia goggles for me since I never grew up on it, and I only watched it for the first time around 5 years ago.
It's about 200 eps which is pretty intimidating, but the characters, and their interactions, and great direction by many talented people on the crew doesn't make each ep feel like a chore.

It's up to you, if you enjoy slice of life, mostly character driven shows you may enjoy sailor moon.

Old sailor moon filler was forced to flesh out the largely empty characters of the NOT USAGI

Sailor Moon was all about USAGI; even her love interest is pretty much just a handsome cardboard cutout who is mostly there to be part of USAGI'S DESTINY

she was a legit Mary Sue

To be fair, interesting and dynamic characters in anime and manga can be difficult to find in general, due to a reliance on common archetypes.

>>139632117
I'm sorry, I can't stand Usagi's voice-acting, and she's the one talking most of the time. I don't care that she's the original voice actor. Her Usagi now just doesn't sound good to me.

Sailor moon anime was good. Manga was utter shit and making crystal more like the manga is doing no one a favor.
>>
>>139632199
Kotono Mitsuishi is simply too old to voice Usagi. It doesn't matter whether she still active as VA or not, her voice has changed and it no longer fits the role. Same reason they don't call Hisakawa Aya for Ami even though she's still active. Should have cast other VA for Usagi too.
>>
>>139632403
I agree completely. I think they should have totally had her on board for Queen Serenity and Neo Queen Serenity, though. Would have been a nice medium and a cool nod.

In all honesty, the 90s anime didn't flesh them out that much. They had like one or two substantial episodes every season. But are you surprised that a series named Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon is mainly about said character?

That said, it always felt shallow even in the 90s anime that these were great friends but they weren't really that fleshed out, especially after the R season in the 90s anime.

Bro, my whole post is basically saying the opposite of that. Bits and scraps weren't enough either. I wanted the Inners and Outers to had more spotlight than they did. I always thought that their endless devotion to Usagi, like foregoing love to always protect her, was kinda shitty. But in the end, this is Usagi's story.

They should just cancel Sailor Moon and give its budget back to Precure. Also, cancel all shows and give it all to Precure.

It's heavily based on the manga and the 90's anime and the manga were almost completely different from each other..
Each storyline/season is majorly different from each other, but it adds on to the previous storyline, so they all come in together at the end of the series, so it might be important to read up to chapter 27 of the manga

It's so cool how Naoko suggested poses and whatnot for a lot of promotional material.

Her actual skills as an artist weren't that good until near the end of the series' run, but her sense of style, colors, and poses were all amazing.

Off topic, but this is the CEO of DiC entertainment, who made the infamous dub of Sailor Moon back in 1995.

There's an interview with this guy in the new SM book, anyone have a copy of it that they could scan? I know he probably doesn't care, but I'm curious to see how (or if) he responded to fan backlash.

not original poster of that, but in my opinion, as much as I love Takeuchi, the anime handled the story better in my opinion.
With a series like sailor moon, breathing time is needed to get comfortable with the characters and the world around them, and mainly in crystal/manga it's just plot after plot, which is good, but it's also bad because I feel no connection to the girls like I would watching the older anime.
So sailor moon probably would not nearly be as popular as it is now if it weren't for the anime, I believe.

Look at s3's face designa, they look like your typical 2010s anime face. Okay maybe its not a loli face but its stil lsad they decided to move onto a generic art style.

Ami suffered the most from s3's art. Her hair was great now its flat and bland like every other 2010s anime art.

Also the eyes. Again, typical generic shit.

S1 was fine because im not autisric about quality but bluray s1 is fucking amazing and im sad theyll never use this art style again because you of you fucking weebs coomplaining. Now its my turn to complain!!! REEEEEEEE

It's the same character designer that doing Suite Precure, his art style is rather subtle but it's a bit obvious on Sailor Mars transformation scene as she look a bit like Cure Melody in here.

These are just estimates. Some chapters might be split into two episodes.

Seasons 1 & 2: 26 episodes
Seasons 3 & 4: 13 + 11 = 24 episodes
Seasons 5 & 6: 11 + 16 = 27 episodes

Season 6 is Sailor V.
