I know for some people transformations are important, ut as it is going to be two movies, they really make the brisk and short.
yeah, like in the superS movie, they also put the Inners henshin together.

I bet they'll do something short and impressive, with some new but also nostalgic elements.

I really hope they make some rwarrangment of events so they can fight the Trio at the same time. But Minako would be hard to do this way. Her whole mini arc involved her feeling weak and was unable to transform. I hope they pull up a miracle. Because for me this is the manga arc that really need a proper adaptation and it was the one that already had a rather weak adaptation once.

When it comes to transformations I always post this Cure Ace henshin as a reference:


The part with the flames is really nice and I hope Sailor Mars will get something like this.

BTW: I posted this years ago on Masahiru Sakurai's twitter and asked him for some quality transformations of this kind. And what dud they do? They copied parts of it for Chibi Moon!!

They're both animated by Naotoshi Shida. He loves doing certain shots like those in his transformation sequences.

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)
A lot of people gave her crap during season 3 but I'm sure none of them have heard her old anime & toku songs from the 70s-90s (including her Galaxia character song) so they don't know how good she actually was.

With that said, if Nana Mizuki is ever brought in, I hope there's new songs produced. Her involvement in DBS Broly was a huge waste because she is a good singer and has been doing it for years (good songs for example: each opening for Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha in which she also voiced Fate in the show) and yet she was brought in only to voice Cheelai while the ED song was performed by a Kamen Rider singer and was as terrible as most of the Dragon Ball songs have been since the anime came back (not just with Super but the last two Z movies and most of Kai as well).

They're both animated by Naotoshi Shida. He loves doing certain shots like those in his transformation sequences.
Yup!



More of his cuts here, including the two in question:

I wanted to say that I dont want to offence her, because I know her - she s a legend. She was just not fitting or the song.

The lack of streaming for the events killed my hopes for updates. Yet another cold shower from Toei and Kodansha I guess.
