It's no secret that Crystal had them live beyond their manga point of death but it's also no secret the payoff was very disappointing. If you were in charge of the show, how would you have handled their extended story? My brother likes the idea of them being treated like the Specter Sisters from R; redeemed and living life as modern humans. They wouldn't necessarily have to stay in Japan, maybe travel and occasionally return to the plot to help out. I think that might work.

Anyway, just curious for your thoughts. Would you leave it as is, go back to that manga deaths, or do something else with the Generals?

Not all of them will fall in love with :ami::minako::rei::mako:. May be just :rei: X Jadeite. It seems to work well with Another Story. The Shittenou will be portrayed as good and honorable soldiers. They'll be fighting the usual D&D monsters dragons, eye of the beholders, trolls, orcs, etc. saving innocent people and villages. Give them each flashback fillers fighting some evil wizard.

Have them stick around and become Mamoru’s actual team and best buddies. For as much as the manga tends to treat Mamoru better and centers it around him more I always found it odd that he’s just left completely alone with no built-in support system other than Usagi and Chibs. At least in the 90’s anime he has Motoki, (had) Fiore and a group of friends from back in his high school days (Shiori and Kobayashi, even if they were filler) in the Manga/Crystal he essentially has no one except maybe Asanuma. (And even then it doesn’t seem like they’re really close the way Mamoru and Motoki are in the anime since rather than being equals Asanuma tends to idolize Mamoru and treats him with Kohai-Senpai admiration.)

Furthermore let there be actual complex emotional issues between the Shittenou and the Senshi with the Inners not being able to fully bring themselves to trust them after they were betrayed in the past, I’d also like to see the Shittenou grapple with their own sense of guilt over what they’ve done but a subplot like that would probably be something a bit too character-driven for Crystal to be equipped to handle.

Agree with this, axe the Sen/Shi shipping completely except for maybe one or two pairs, anything else comes off as both really forced and unrealistic and would be hard for the show to juggle that many ships at once and give them all the proper depth and development (Including the our currently established Miracle Romance and HaruMichi couples as well as all the other manga’s teased ships)

Disagree with it being Jadeite/Rei though, Imo that’s one of the more ridiculous Sen/Shi shipping along with Ami/Zoi, especially for Manga Rei in particular who seems to really hold a grudge against men and probably vowed to never allow herself to get taken in by one again after the incident with Kaidou, I’d almost consider it borderline OOC for her to get involved with any man post-Kaidou.

I might be biased due to it being the only one of the 4 I actually ship but in my opinion the only Sen/Shi shipping that should be canon and allowed to manifest is Venus/Kunzite and that’s it.

The pairings remind me of Winx Club, and romance is one of the worst aspects of the show. Other than Tecna and Timmy, who initially had a interesting subplot about two geeks learning how to love, pretty much almost every other couple felt like... Barbie and Ken. Sky is pretty much like Tuxedo Mask in Sailor Moon. His relationship with Bloom drove the first season into its major conflict, but after that, their relationship grew more and more tiring.
