This flashback shot of Queen Serenity from Act 13 is strange to me:



It looks like her hair is down/loose instead of in two pigtails, and why is she wearing a ring all of a sudden?
It's the "manga language". In order to depict a character's feeling, sometimes they drew a naked body, loose hair, or even long hair for a short-haired character.

From Act 8: On the first page (pre title pages), we see Venus drop both of her gloves (for some reason). When next we see her arms clearly, they are gloved. On a later page, she removes one glove (again, for...reasons...) only to be wearing both gloves again in the bottom panel. Venus's gloves: they're as inconsistent as Pluto's backstory, role, color scheme, skintone, and occupation!


I always thought that was a flashback scene. Venus removed her gloves to greet the girls.

She's only saying that because she didn't transform. I'm pretty sure it's an error on Takeuchi's part.

Even if it were, we wouldn't know, since it's entirely possible they'd just uncritically recreate Naoko's errors. (I full expect Queen Serenity to use the old version of the Moon Stick, and for Uranus's double-elbowed arm to make its glorious animated debut in Part 2.)

Well I'm going to throw in my thoughts on the extra-long Uranus arm. I think it's fantastic! And I also feel like it is more an artistic expression than a mistake whatever its origins. Sure to some people it will look awful immediately because everyone is unique, but at a casual glace I just see am action scene with someone stretching their arm super high into the sky with all their might. I don't see any need to "fix" this.

The secret behind her immense skill at track: she could extend her limbs at will all along. P-:

Not that there aren't things that don't look a little strange to me, even at first glance...
For some reason I feel like Usagi's nose should be pointing left not right here. Or maybe I'm just seeing it wrong...

:mihiru: Haruka... I can't help but feel you've been keeping me at arms length today. Is something wrong?
:haruka: (extends her hand to Michiru)
:setsuna::haruka::mihiru: (continue to maintain the barrier holding in Pharaoh 90)

No, you're absolutely right. We can only see part of her ear on the left (her right) side of her face because her face is partially turned away. Unless there was like... A strong spotlight on the left side of her face casting a shadow and creating the illusion of it pointing right, then it's wrong.

I think that's the shadow of her nose. Some old shoujo manga drew the same way in particular scenes.
