I would like to see her following the path of Yukie Sakou. I am tired of the Ito clone-fanart and I would appreciate if she‘d try something new and more manga-inspired.
I don't know why but Ikuko Ito's art is very... Ikuko Ito. It don't say it's bad, but I just don't like it. It does not have a vibe of Naoko at all. People may make a comparison and say "See? This part is more resemble of Naoko's, Sakou's and Akira's are far more different". But the overall feeling is just so different from Naoko's.

Ikuko Itou has a signature style. I quite like it. She really formed her style while working on Sailor Moon and for me she did capture the essence. All she needs to do to make her design manga, would be a bit more volume to the hair and lipgloss. And she did nice lips on characters that were supposed to wear lipgloss. Look at her Mistress 9, Kaolinite and Neherenia. With few details added to her style, she would do best. But she is not as active in recent years. My main problem with Crysternal are not the character designers as much as the animators. Whatever the design, they are doing whatever they want with them... And for some reason with Crystal so far the designers don't stick a lot as animation directors to maje sure the art is consistent. I really hope the film format is a bit more consistent, but from what we have seen so far it won't be the case.
