Jupiter always had good episodes in Crystal, and her attacks are really good (Coconuts Cyclone has some beautiful shots). I suppose it’s fair the other guardians have better treatment now.
Mars and Mercury are really good, I think they are from the same animator who kindly posted in English last week on Twitter ?

I hope Crystal Stars will have inbetween frames that are on par with these:


They are on the screen for just a glimpse but still our eyes notice their flawless beauty.

And tbh they look better then any official Eternal promo art.
anything from past seasons looks a lot better than any eternal promo art.
The art for the movie looks so... lackluster, in both posters they are just standing there, there is no pose or hair porn and everyone has the same face expression. The only art I really like was the very first key art, and that's just a redraw from a manga panel lol

To me I think the Eternal promo art is pretty, of course, it's really the eyes more than anything but I found they all look nice,. especially Mars. A lot of people like the look of it as well so far so that is a good sign. I had a guy tell me it looks better than what I showed him before ( Crystal Season 3). Actually, the Eternal movie looks better than the Crystal art at certain points, lol. At least to me.

I think all three styles the series has gone through have something good about them. But all three are also lacking something. As long as there's actually motion, though, I'll be pretty satisfied. Lol.

Germany
There is less than a month and it drags and drags... It will feel like the longest May ever.
I think may will pass very quickly since next week most people in Germany only have 3 working days, and the last week of may also has only 4 working days because of holidays.
I personally watch one episode of Crystal each day to make time pass even faster.

Good idea, I might start doing the same :)

Right?? The first poster was really cool, dynamic and powerful. I had to get used to the new, rounder chara design, especially of Moon, but the poses, hair and expression was totally there. I have a feeling that all promo posters have been made by different artists.

I do not know about all of them, but the one with Nehellenia is for sure quite different. I am sure the one for part 1 is done by Tadano, but I cannot say for sure about part 2

Uhm, Anything? Like this?

Maybe you don't like Eternal art but saying ANYTHING from past seasons was A LOT better is a reach. Most people agree that Eternal is the best Crystal ever look and it is clearly better than the horrible mess that was ss1

I think they meant posters. I agree to a degree - s1 and 2 had some cool promo art going on, but the season 3 ones were... quite bad. Eternal promo art is on point. I dislike the first key visual that was way too round, but the other 3 are quite good.

I was talking about the posters, but if you wanna go there:
Spoiler: show


Just the transformation alone has weird frames and dubious quality art for a movie. Isn't the transformation one thing very important to Sailor Moon franchise and should be high budget or something? 90's transformation with the same choreography looks a lot better.

And I'm not going say anything about the art style again, most of the sm fans are from the 90's anime and ofc they gonna like anything that looks like that, but Eternal doesn't look as good as how it used to look back in the classic anime + the lack of consistency in the animation make it looks like a different artist every single frame lmao (@ eternal transformation).

but anyway, back to the posters, yeah, i need more dynamic poses, I'm not asking JJBA but you know lol

S1-2 posters had some interesting parts (minus Usagi who is constantly weird looking), but they advertised a product we never really had, even after corrections. Some frames are reminiscent of this design in some episodes but not a lot.

I like Eternal but I kinda agree to the fact that posters kinda lacks some dynamic poses or camera angles. I like them a lot but it’s not very imaginative, and eyes kinda lack some depths, they all look quite alike. If you look at the poster in the artbook, Uranus/Neptune/Pluto eyes seems copied-pasted with just their color changed…

And yes double moon henshin has some nasty shot. If I remember correctly, Tadano said in the pamphlet that she helped correcting henshin because animators weren’t yet used to the design. She doesn’t say which henshin she corrected though, obviously not Moon Crisis :/
