While the MP video looks weird in a few parts there are some shots that are a joy to watch. Namely, when all the Senshi are on the group an dare looking up. We get some nice shots of their gorgeous faces....right before we get the elegant Venus turn around. Another one of my favorite but very minor scenes is the opening of Season 1. The end pose they do look fantastic but I hate they switched Mars' pose though to the lame one.
Also the ending to Season 1 had very beautiful animation.
Just 4 more days to the birthday.
As for the season 1 and 2, as welll as the PV, the weird shots and clunciness is very telling about anime in this day and age. While production raised miles, the current animators are limired to somewhat round and cute artstyle and simply cannot get out of the comfort zone to do something with more sharp and ellegant look. Some still can, obviously but most have lost it or were never asked to do it in the first place. Anime nowadays is rounder, flashier and cute and the edgy 90s seem unreachable to most animators.
I dont mind them referencing the 90s as long as they improve and build on them. The Crystal Season 3 tried to replicate some stuff but in a downgrade way. Haruka and Michiru transformations were very bad copies and don't stick a candle to the original. They might get inspired of the old show but improve of the elements they borrow. But first things first - the designs. This is the third time they are introducing a new artstyle and it is high time to do it right. "Please, Pegasus! Protect our beautiful dreams." Oh, seeing grown up Chibi Usa would be so nice, if that part doesn't get cut... At the begining of episide 21 of Crystal she looked gorgeous.
Nana Mizuki as Nehelenia sounds so nice, although I cannot picture her playing a villain. For me there was something very operatic in Nehelenia Japanese voice, just a little hint, and I can imagine Nana pull up such voice, but menacing and cold... I haven't seen her in such role. I'd rather have her for the theme song so we can finally have domeone who can actually sing do a theme song in Crystal (no offence to Mitsuko Horie)
I saw a video recently about Netflix acquiring Evangelion, and about how they’re trying to take over anime by producing a lot of anime, and also acquiring exclusive licensing deals... I wonder what the likelihood is that they’ll team up with Toei to help fund the movies in exchange for exclusive rights and a “Netflix Original” label... especially with the underpaid animators in Japan and the janky outsourced animation.
I just finished it. Gosh Gonzo has become worse than Toei Philippines. Compared to that animation, Crystal was indeed much better. After all it had some beautiful scenes. 7 seeds looks terrible on every frame.
Just 24 hours. If they really skip any Crystal updates, this would be the biggest trolling ever.
I ask the same thing, I hope so, but nobody seems to know. In case it is there will e link on the official site tomorrow. That is how I found it was streamed last year and watched it. It will most likely be in the second part anyway, so even if we miss part 1 it won't be a ig deal/
