I didn't have the opportunity to watch the 'original' version of Crystal. Is it that bad?

The BD version is already a cr*p animation-wise, I can't even imagine the quality of the streaming one.
Do you need to hate Crystal even more. I mean, do not you hate it enough already? I mean it is so bad, I actually stopped watching it after episode 12... And didn't think about it for months until I discovered the blu ray version is watchable.

What do you expect with a low budget net anime? Yes, the animation in the first two season surely is not smooth, but the drawing is 1.5 times better than season 3, not to mention they didn't fix ugly fames in season 3 in DVD. In season 3 I don't feel like they really spent time with each drawing.

They got the ONA version like when they first had JoJo season 1's broadcast master 2 years ago. :evillaugh:

EDIT:


^Should have never been "fixed".
Bravo Toei :|
Also, thats not the "TV" versión, that's the online one. After the bluray releases and Crystal 3 was announced, they finally had a broadcast on tv but with the home release version.

So, Imma keep watching on Crunchyroll since its the same version, thank god I just re-downloaded the bluray versions to sync with the latino dub

Hate it? No, hate is a very strong feeling but I feel pity because Crystal coud've been bigger and better regarding the animation and writing. The manga is superior if you ask me. I know this is not the thread to say this but Crystal is not faithful to the source material, it lacks the energy and the poetry of the manga. Sorry for the off-topic.

Yes, the original is a hot mess with terrible scheduling and pacing but a few episodes looked quite gorgeous and Venus ran up a wall in one episode..lol

I was just being dramatic. But yeah, the whole mess when it first came out really made me quit and ban Crystal, till all the dvds were out so I can watch the bearable version, although the writing in episode 12 was the main reason for me to ''cancel' Crystal for a while. I am so sorry that the mainstream audience they might attract will see already low quality product in its beta version.

We all have to thank that one artist from the Philippines who made that legendary meme. :googly:
Philippine artists are usually to blame when it comes to a bad frame. However, it's the huge Japanese staff who made the most "memorable" episode 2.
It seems that they were not able find a good schedule or a good staff to make episode 2 at the time, so they had to publish the draft version.

Plus the studio who worked on episode 2 actually closed up 3 years ago as covered here.

This whole convo made me dig out my Crystal s1 and 2 discks to watch a bit again. Honestly, Netflix got it really bad. I mean fixed Crystal looks passable. I don't understand why they ended up with this terrible version.

Netflix should also redub Crystal with honorifics this time for an even more authentic experience :p

Either way that artist needs to be credited in memelord history. :yoshi:

It’s still up on Hulu.. their release of the dub is the BD version (the sub is still the web version though.) I wonder if they have an exclusive contract for the BD masters? Maybe that’s why Netflix could only get the web version.

So in few months they will release it in other regions dubbed in all the languages Eternal is available, using this masters, so some countries would be hyper screwed...
