    Sailor Moon Crystal Official Art

    For once they gave them cute outfits that deviate from their main colors! I really like this art. Even though there’s a few tweaks that I’d do, Tadano’s style really captures the Sailor Moon feeling best…

    Sailor Moon Cosmos announced for Summer 2023

    They cut out Mint's introduction (she is a lot like like Sailor V), but they pretty much combined the plot of that chapter with another episode and actually gave her a lot of character development. Whereas Crystal in its first season actually removed a lot of little scenes that developed the...

    Sailor Moon Cosmos announced for Summer 2023

    I think @sapphire91 is right that overall it won’t make a major difference since Crystal has a very clear established formula in following the manga closely. None of the story or pacing issues are going to change. However, I think there probably will be a subtle difference in regards to how...

    Sailor Moon Cosmos announced for Summer 2023

    The first couple of episodes in both Season 1 & 2 are stand outs because they flesh out the Inners a lot more than in the manga. Ami’s and Makoto’s episodes in particular.

    Sailor Moon Cosmos announced for Summer 2023

    To be fair to Tadano back then, her designs were fairly accurate to Naoko Takeuchi’s at the time. Remember that Naoko’s style was not as waif-like in the beginning and Usagi in the early stages was way more child-like. The styles of both the ‘90s anime and manga seemed to majorly diverge during...

    Favorite translation for Odango Atama

    I think your theory sounds right to me. In the manga, Mamoru refers to Usagi’s “buns” as “lumps” and his first insult of choice is actually “lump head.” Usagi then corrects him by saying they’re buns not lumps, and after that he starts calling her bun head… So he’s basically using her own words...

    I would have preferred Eternal’s designs from the start.

    Sailor Moon Crystal Official Art

    It could be just me, but everyone looks slightly aged up from their designs in Eternal. Mamoru in particular looks very handsome (it’s also nice seeing him with the girls… I feel like it’s rare with these kind of promotional artworks).

    Sailor Moon Cosmos announced for Summer 2023

    Yeah. It's close to Sailor Moon Crystal Season 3 in terms of animation. Although, I think Tokyo Mew Mew New edges it out by a bit with its stock footage being better (although I guess it helps there's less characters?).

    Toon Makers (Saban Moon) Sailor Moon pilot?

    If they were going to really lean into Japanese/Asian stereotypes, I feel like they would have had Sailor Mars’ actress portray Sailor Mercury instead… But considering how much of their personalities they swapped around, I just don’t think they really had the originals in mind when creating...

    Toon Makers (Saban Moon) Sailor Moon pilot?

    It’s not unlikely since sometimes old manga do get new anime adaptations… It’s just the fact that she doesn’t acknowledge her older works that makes it feel like a huge long shot. She could totally pitch Cherry Project to a studio since the manga was a minor success at the time, but she just...

    This is probably true in a roundabout way. Sakou worked as a key animator for Code Geass which was based off of original designs by CLAMP. But I think her style is probably more influenced by Takahiro Kimura who was the actual character designer for that series. That’s why you get weird oddities...

    Sailor Moon Cosmos announced for Summer 2023

    To be fair stock footage was introduced in Season 2. The scene you quoted was one of a few exceptions.

    Toon Makers (Saban Moon) Sailor Moon pilot?

    Yeah it’s weird how much I HATED everything I saw at first watch, but have weirdly grown more fond after a few more watches? There is something endearing about it.

    Toon Makers (Saban Moon) Sailor Moon pilot?

    It does make me smile to see the fandom finally have something NEW to react to. Seeing all of the fanart (there's already a lot of art with Usagi and Victoria together and it's very cute) and memes. It's what makes me hold out hope that there'll one day be actual new Sailor Moon content because...
