If Tadano was hired to do Crystal from S1/2, the outcome may have been different from what we see in Eternal...
She still has to do that awful SHITtenou X Senshi side arc. :ami:::love:::blueghost: :rei:::love:::redghost: :minako:::love:::orangeghost: :mako:::love:::greenghost:

Then there's the fact that Dragonball, One Piece and Precure are top priority with everything needing Naoko's signature. :mameshiba:

Also I highly doubt the fandom would be spared from that legendary meme of episode 3. I'm surprised the animator who worked on that is from Japan. Didn't surprised me at all when NJ mentioned that animation studio that animator came from shut down.

I prefer Tamegai back for Stars just for closure between Takeuchi and Tamegai, the Sailor Stars-themed artwork in artbook 4 and 5 were drawn for him to adapt in the first place and for Takeuchi to be able to fix the manga mistakes in the last few arcs and the colored version of the manga be completed.

Talking about the colored manga is prohibited. You have to say "you-know-what".

The fandom deserves closure and completion and they have already given closure for Tadano because she was given a chance to draw the rest of the Senshi.
She kinda failed tho.I hope she won’t be back for Stars.

Is Tamegai popular among japanese fans?

I really need some aged up senshi with noses and dynamic bodies for Stars.

Tamegai's current style is... interesting...
Tamegai can blend his new style with Tadano and Sakou.
Not surprised, considering how anime narratives quality drop each year, I guess current new generation adore terrible plots. And sadly I am not joking.
Perhaps that shows the rot and decay of society in general.

This fanart fixed every problems in Sakou's design, and incorporate Tadano's style into it.
I NEED this for Stars

For me the eyes could be even more Tadano. I think it‘s important for the fanbase to recognize 90s Usagi through her eyes.

It’s really a nice version adaptation of the manga with some Tadano’s style, I like it. But I suppose it would be still too hard to animate and a design like this would end like S1-2

Well, if they actually try... There way more intricate anime styles done nicely. But toei doesn't even try and it is not like when they simplified the designs it became so amazing. It is still inconsistent, even the simple designs have ugly and off model frames, and still barely move. As for the fan desing - I think the eyes need some more work, they are still a bit lacking for me.

Let's see:

S1/S2

Pros: They were shoujo-ish. At least different from today's standards.

Cons: Everything else. Even though the designs a really 80's/ early 90's shoujo, for some reason they're not well animated. Utena had low budget as well and didn't have such issues in 1997, so there's no excuse. Sakou didn't even know anything about anatomy or perspective. Masahiro Ando is superior, that says it all.

S3

Pros: Expressiveness, better anatomy, better camera shots.

Cons: The Precure style.

Eternal

Pros: Cute..........

Cons: ................ but unsatisfactory. The designs looked like a cheap copy of those of the 90's. Also, they felt unfinished.
