Just gonna keep saying I don't see the gray 'cause I actually love C-17 research for it lmao

At least you're not a JoJo fan or you would have an awful OCD with all the different colors they use in all the different media :P

Its purple to me, I've always seen it as a dark purple that's coded as black.

But if we really want to talk about discrepancies, lets bring out how Neo Queen Serenity's hair went from white in episode one of season 3 to blonde ...creating a continuity snarl.

I apologize if the discussion has ended, but I gotta chime in:

I can't possibly see how anyone could look at colored pictures of Rei and Ami from the manga (not the prototypes but using the final design) and think that they have black hair.

Ami's hair color is clearly a very dark navy in those pictures, and the presence of the violet/purple in Rei's hair clearly shows that the hair color is not meant to be black. If it's black, then it would not gleam violet/purple, nor would Ami's hair appear to be dark blue.

Rei's hair color is meant to be an extremely dark shade of violet/purple that could be mistaken for black in the dark.

It's definitely too light in Crystal, but Crystal is definitely doing its own thing in regards to its color palette.

Furthermore, you really can't use images from the manga itself to justify this because all characters with very dark hair colors are drawn with black hair since...you know...manga is mostly a black-and-white medium.

I'm not denying that Ami and Rei's hair colors are very close to black, but to say that they're meant to be black is taking it a step too far. Takeuchi was not always consistent in how she depicted colors, but the evidence is clear.

Ami and Rei hair are not black. You can not use the manga pages as an example.( For corlor) Because their colors are black and white.It's almost impossible to know what the colors are supposed to be unless you look at a color image or illustration. As for the design for season 4 . I think its best for us not to get our hopes us, and base the designs will be on the promo images. Because of their still promoting season 3 .They probably haven't even started producing season 4 nonetheless have design

Oh, are we talking trash about the S3 style again?

Why not just say something like "oh no, they're using the style I hate again?" You do know that there are people who do like it and reading stuff like "this art is so stupid Rei looks like a South Park Canadian!" is kinda unnecessary in a subforum that's supposed to be light on anti-Crystal posting.

^ I love Crystal, but I'm going to be vocal about not liking that particular style because we're talking about that style in comparison to the one for recent merch. If its that big an issue, just PM a mod. I've done it before and it does help.

Honestly I like Rei with black hair more it makes her more regal and like a strong Asian beauty where as the Violet color is just meh. I do think that violet would be a good hair color for Rei jr. aka Rei's daughter in Parallel Sailor Moon.

we are talking trash because the artwork it's just awful, just like people were talking trash when some of the blu ray covers were awful.

We are NOT going to praise something that looks bad, yeah, maybe saying it looks like south park it's too much, but where is the lie tho

I like Rei black hair, too. Although, it looks violet.
