What do you think are the worst seasons of Crystal in terms of writing, character and pace? I personally think that season one is the absolute worst.

^ Good point, but we all saw how ugly things got without contexts so that’s what my comment was directed at.

Id say that Season 1 was the weakest link. The elimination of the joke panels in the manga didn’t help it, and while I can appreciate a serious story I don’t think that the few characters moments we get in such a fast paced story as this can be afforded to be sacrificed.
The only other con to this season was the storyline changes (that didn’t likely stem from censorship like Beryl being gutted). The SenxShi romance and conflict would have benefited from additional episodes because they felt flat with no development. Beryls backstory could have been more memorable had it received this treatment too.

Sticking closer to the manga for the next 2 seasons -even with its faults- worked in its favor and though I enjoyed season 1 I won’t pretend that the start was shaky.


Your turn

Season 1. The first arc of the manga is not very good, IMO. The manga becomes good starting with the Black Moon arc --and then it gets better and better.

I feel the exact opposite :P

I voted for Season 1, too. Mainly because of all the character moments being removed and Usagi commiting suicide in the present!
Usagi committing suicide is already part of the story!
But if it were me, I’d write that a bit differently

...like having Endymion strike her down and have her be force to kill him.
Heheh.

It pains me to say this but Season 1 ruined the Dark Kingdom arc for me. The lack of cool moment's like Usagi's transformation into a groom, no funny moments, Moon killing Beryl and her necklace, and the stupid Senshi x Shittenou subplot ruined it for me. Plus, I hated the CGI transformations.

I don't like the 3D CGI transformation sequences, either. I also didn't how they were in full length, resulting in a loss of characterization for EVERYONE!

all the above for me XD course I've always been biased towards the 90s anime and i don't care who knows it XD
I understand how you feel, Ryo. The 90's anime holds a special place in your heart, mostly due to Ami and Usagi. Though, I did enjoy Crystal season 3, I fully respect your opinion.

^ I won’t say that the romance wasn’t clumsily written but why is it THAT bad that they all cried after seeing four humans being obliterated right in front of them?
It’d be funnier if they were nonchalant but it was a perfectly normal way to react xD

I don’t think it’s bad to say that you have a bias :)
Now, PRETENDING not to while it being obvious is bad xD
-that last statement doesn’t mean you, just people who do this in general.

Now, in the most neutral way possible, I just want to ask what makes you dislike all of the seasons?
