    Calling all Michiru fans... Why is she so popular?

    She gets high ranking in beauty related polls, from what I have seen. And when it comes to her design in the manga I agree with it. Too bad Crystal dropped the ball on trying to capture the manga look.

    Calling all Michiru fans... Why is she so popular?

    Well, she is beautiful, graceful, and have that peculiar nee-sama vibe that most yuri fans are crazy about. Her manga design is gorgeous with that wavy long hair, her signature color is attention-grabbing and she is relatable to the artsy fans. Each character has their fans, although sometimes...

    [JP] 90s anime Blu-ray sets announced

    The supers and stars blu rays are exactly the same, when it comes to visual quality. Sailor Moon blu ray upscale will never worth it, when it comes to video quality. While Toei HD version did some good by removibg some burned frames and dirt specks, which were on the dvd version, the filtering...

    [JP] 90s anime Blu-ray sets announced

    They totally screwed the first 3 seasons, using horrible post processing. I hope they will re-release them with the new masters they got from Toei for S and Stars. They are still not perfect, but way better than Viz. The best are still the ones used in Italy. Toei hd masters are still quite...

    REAl Crystal bashers go way too far

    I was just against compairing them, otherwise it is personal preferences. I love old anime in general. Stuff from 80s and 90s, because of the overall more mature artstyle and the feel of handrawn animation. While I enjoy new stuff as well, I find a lot of it too moe and too digital. But there...

    REAl Crystal bashers go way too far

    It is collaboration, but still cute. It doesn't look like Yukie Sakou though. More like Arina Tanemura's take on the characters.

    REAl Crystal bashers go way too far

    True, while some other episodes had stunning frames, like episode 17, 21 and 25, episode 5 was consistently beautiful with very few art variation. The attacks were also quite cool. While Iwata delivered some exquisite scenes, they were here in there between good and bad frames.

    REAl Crystal bashers go way too far

    I do not agree with this. I mean, sure Crystal has very cute backgrounds, but the old show has it as well. I think these comparisons are unfair. The old show was completely hand drawn and very long. It came out almost 30 years ago and everything was done by hand. The backgrounds are very...

    REAl Crystal bashers go way too far

    Whatever people say about crystal s1 and 2, the anesthetics were very beaitiful. The skirts, the hair, the shadows. Too bad Toei didn't grant the budget and care to maintain it. We might have kept it consistent and even watching Stars by now. While some people bashed the artstyle itself most...

    Season 4 movies update: Sailor Moon Eternal - Coming in 2020

    Did they? I thought it was just Anime Expo panel with international logo from Toei. Didn't know Viz confirmed having Eternal. With this in mind I cannot count on homemade release before late in 2021 :(

    REAl Crystal bashers go way too far

    Well, it is not hard to guess what most peole will complain about. The artstyle sems to be well-received by the majority of the fans. While the animation is yet to be seeb, I doubtbit is going to be without flaws, so some might complain about it. Others might complain by the copy paate...

    Season 4 movies update: Sailor Moon Eternal - Coming in 2020

    If they bring some of the old animators, my money is on Hisashi Kagawa. He was character design for S and SuperS films and Toei still hires him for Precure films. While he did some episodes here and there, he is mostly working on their films, so it is a possibility. But I doubt they will go this...

    Season 4 movies update: Sailor Moon Eternal - Coming in 2020

    He might get inspired, but I doubt he can rearrange it, after all there is some copyright going on. I don't even think Moon Light Densetsu will be used and just put it in the teaser, as we have no artists revealed. I love the old show OST and I listen to some tracks all the time, but I hope they...

    Season 4 movies update: Sailor Moon Eternal - Coming in 2020

    I doubt it will get any awards as it is not original story. As for the music - the Crystal composer is sadly back, so the music will be his doing. I like him, and Im in the minority that loves Crystal OST, but it is not very original. Let's hope he puts more effort for a film.

    Season 4 movies update: Sailor Moon Eternal - Coming in 2020

    I am pretty sure we can follow the story even in Japanese. I was thinking of travelling there next year, so I might get to see it. Still not sure. Never been outside Europe and my Japanese is too basic for such a endeavor. I hope we get more artwork revealed soon. I want to see Mamoru and...

    What if Usagi and Mamoru had a son instead of Chibiusa?

    I like the idea of Moon Kingdom heirs only having one daughter who will succed them. A son would be cute but for comic purposes and I prefer the more serious aspect of the story. But it would be so cute if they had a son and he eventually falls in love with human Diana. Too cheesy, but kind a cute.

    What is the Copyright Status of the Original Dub?

    I second this. I am not in love with the dub. It is ok, it is not the best, but it is serviceable for people who prefer dubs. But VIZ messed up releasing the show with all sort of problems, crazy filtering and compression, cramming so many episodes in one disc for a non digitally produced show...

    What is the Copyright Status of the Original Dub?

    Guys, be real. They won't produce yet another dub of the show.

    What is the Copyright Status of the Original Dub?

    I am sure Viz would have include it, if they could. Maybe the S and SuperS dubs could still be arranged legally. I think the problem might be the Classic and R

    REAl Crystal bashers go way too far

    Nobody, especially me denies the lack of quality. Just people on other outlests are spreading claims of it being such a failure they couldn't secure tv spot for more. As if movies work this way. And why season 1 and 2 were a mess production wise, art wise they kept the essence of the manga...
