First two screenshots are retraced from Act. 38 of SMC because its the same moment when they're showing high school uniforms and Mamo became Uni student

Lol, the Usagi profile aside, this looks great. But with the 80 minutes being already short run time, do we really need all this in the film... I am so worried about the pacing... I love everything but the sloppy profile shot of Usagi. It looks nice and Mamoru looks great.

These are retraced from season 3 and if you look them back to back... No way saying Akira's frogs look better...

I don’t think that Sakou will ever be back but who knows, maybe there will be a poll where fans can decide between Tadano, Sakou and Takahashi? I wonder who would win that.

Anyway, Stars is hopefully a bit more elegant again, with older faces please.
I cannot see Sakou returning but I think there will be artstyle change for Stars and we cannot tell to what direction they will be going with it.

If these movies live up to Toei's expectations unlike previous Crystal seasons, I really doubt there will be another change.
I am perfectly fine with the new style so I have no problem with it. And so far it looks great in animation. But I think part of the Crystal franchise now is the ever changing artstyle. It is part of the whole experience.

Chibiusa is the clear winner of Eternal. She looks great in all shots. Maybe the cute design does her a favor. I also like the pic with them holding the kaleidoscopes. It’s flawless. Pic 4 looks okay but I’m not happy with the shading. It looks a bit too simple and weak to me. Pic 3... their left eyes are popping out like fisheyes. Usagi looks weird overall and Mamo’s nose/upper lips...I don’t like it.

I guess I’ll be fine if Tadano keeps on working on Crystal Stars IF she makes everybody look older. I want the last reboot project to look different again. I appreciate the inconsistency with the chara design.

I mean...the profile shots have never once looked good in Crysternal, so I'm not surprised by how bad that still of Usagi and Mamoru looks :lol:

They should have never included the eclipse scene in the last episode of season III. I guess at the time they were probably expecting to churn out season IV as an actual TV show, in which case they wouldn't have had to recap everything, but they should have just played it safe and then done Act 40 as a two-parter. Instead they're going to waste time showing us stuff we've already seen (including, I'm sure, the stuff from Mercury Dream that they already put in Act 16).

Anyway, in the Stars arc, we see Galaxia viewing the coronation scene from her base, and later learn that Kakyuu also witnessed it. Do you think Eternal will include cutaway shots of Galaxia and Kakyuu during that scene to set up the Stars adaptation, or have they already completely abandoned any interest in telling a cohesive story?

The latter, of course. If it's not present in the manga panels of the Dream arc, it's not happening.

this cold totally happen as as much some hate Crystal and twist stuff they always ended a story arc on a cliffhanger.

They also included the tease of human Luna in season 1.. so anything’s possible!!
That was a sweet glimpse and raised many hopes, but didn’t go anywhere, sadly.

@MementoNepenthe I think it was cool to include it in S3 as a cliffhanger, but since there was no S4 in sight it was at the same time pointless. I think it is important though to show the scenes in the beginning of the movie. Maybe they play a song during those scenes and it works like an opening like in the 90s movies.

That’s my hope too- akin to how they did the scenes on the bus in the R movie. Though from the trailer, we’ll still get dialogue during the scene, so who knows..

There was Momoiro Clover Z's stage on AbemaTV, where they sang full version of Tsukiiro Chainon
and IMO chorus and last verse are the only good parts of the whole song
