@janegreen haha *high five* finally someone else!! I actually love her tansformation. Sure it doesnt have that special music piece but I think its to keep it away from being rather childish again. Now the music is more action and epic in other ways. I mean in episode 9, throughout the whole episode the music was E P I C !!! And then again like I mentioned the focus is not to make tranformations and attack epic but to make the STORY epic and with that they succeed I believe! I mean in the manga they dont even show the tranformations so I am happy we got these cool ones!

Oh, finally someone who thinks same as me, @jaedze ! I totally agree. The truth is, this is nothing else but a tribute to the manga and the old series. It was made for the old fans who watched it as kids and now are grown up. I still remember having like 4 or 5 years and watching it every Sunday at 8 am. I was so excited! And now, frankly, there are lots and lots of other anime and kids probably won't enjoy this as much as we did back then, so it's basically made just for us, the old fans, and I can't tell how happy I am ;D

The only thing I don't quite like is the transformation of SM. It was always an eyecandy that never ever got boring. The glitter and pink stuff and music, it was soooo enchanting, but here it's just too plain T_T
And at first, I didn't like the drawing but somewhere around 4th episode I started to look at it in different way and now I absolutely love it.
Especially my favorite four kings <3

The best evil characters ever made <3

LOVE IT! As a fan of the original anime, this surpassed the old one for me. Its more grown up (the original was rather childish in my opinion) This feels more fitting for older audience and is more shoujo-ish because of the romance, which is deeper in this one. Its even more emtotional, Usagi is not acting like a 10 year old all the time and the focus is not on transformation and attacks but on story which I LOOVE!! Sure the quality is imperfect but if you compare it with the old anime quality this one is GOLD! The old one had MISTAKES like hell so I am not complaining now. I love Crystal in every way. I hope they do more than just 26 episodes, but with fans complaining more than enjoying it I am doubtful they will continue TT___TT

@carroline I remember reading somewhere that the budget for Sailor Moon Crystal was pretty low hence the poor quality animation. I don't know if it's true but it would make sense.

@winged yeah, they had a lot of time, 25 years, they should have done much better! :D
Honestly i can't understand what went wrong: it's the celebration of an important title, you can guess there were a lot of money invested because is a title that brings even more money with all the merchandise that follows... so what happened? i'll keep watching hoping for Tuxedo Kamen saving the show..... :D
(By the way... i would have loved to see this reboot with a restyling from the '90 to the actual fashion. ok, the old "floppy disk" now is a "cd", but i still dreaming of an Usagi WITHOUT white sock with elegant shoes..... )
