Those character designs look similar from an idol anime. Was it K-On!?

Or was it like that Cardcaptor Sakura wannabe? I forgot the name of that anime. ^_^'

On the bright side Fate Stay Night will be released on cineemas as planned. So I think if films are getting to be released now we have nothing to worry about by September. So another 3 months of a wait. At least we got something, albeit in a very questionable manner.
Not true, unfortunately. The premiere of Heaven's Feel was canceled and tickets are being refunded. It's being postponed.

They are seriously pising me of using that same one key visual for everything. It is on the commercial for new parfumes now! How can it be? We got tons of artwork for s 1-3 for commercials and collabs and toys etc. Now they are making a movie and keep on releasing merch with the same one picture. I won't be suprised if they use that for the bluu ray box as well...

Once the make a proper announcement with trailer and full info i bet they will also release more art. but so far they are being super secretive. officially no news since the studio DEEN collaboration announcement.

It's possibly still early in their promo schedule. Don't forget that the Doremi movie had its first teaser in February when the movie was originally going to premiere in May (although now it got delayed so...)... It's annoying, but Japanese anime movies don't get the kind of promotion that people here think they do.

We know they're putting together some teaser, so it's just a matter of time when that premieres and then the real promotion with new art starts.

Spoiler alert: The movie is just that image on screen for 1.5 hours

They should have updated something on the official site (new key visual, character designs) so we can have something to discuss about in this quarantine time.

They look cute and very young, but pretty. In Season 3 they were derpy and young with a very comedic look, so I'd rather have the new design. .

I don't like the way they used stock footage in SMC3. They should keep 50% for latter half of the series, and create new footage from other point of view, change the camera angle. For instance, in Venus' case, they can keep just the eye blinking scene, and adjust the scene the chain hitting the ground. That's a good way to cut the corner, in my opinion. They don't have to redraw 100%, but can create something "new". And the way they used the heart attack or something twice in an episode is way too much. When the outer group was trapped in the elevator, Usagi didn't need to twril and make a pose before attack the darkness.

A season 3 problem for me was eating time and cutting corners by doing flashbacks reussing footage again and again, even stuff that happened like a moment ago. S1-2 had many problems and many bad animation problems but even if they do flashbacks they redraw stuff most of the time. Season 3 made it so obvious. S1 and 2 abused transformations too much but it is less in your eye. They used attacks twice in an episode, it is a sin but I can partially understand it. Then they did all the flashback stuff in acts 10-13. It was blunt. And the time they were having inners versus outers they used the same sequence twice. They also reused twice a scene with Kaolinite and Tomoe. For all the sins s1 and 2 committed they never did that. I think Eternal might use some of the 90s elements but mixing it with manga stuff. The mmight also reanimate some of the season 3 attacks. They might even mix the full sequences the first time an attack is used and then use real-time attacks. We are judging too soon, based on some unfinished footage. In the end of the day the arc is so different from the 90s take that we will still get so much original stuff we never saw animated. I think they will try to capture the manga this time instead of trying to adapt the artstyle but by replicating manga panels and with a fluid animation, this might end up being quite gorgeous. The fact we have secenes recreating manga pages in the trailer as well as the key visual makes me think this is the plan now. Dream arc has so many cool moments and well-composed panels that this idea excites me.

Yes! Why not show "Mars Flame Sniper" from the 90s but from a different angle and in real time? Or even "Jupiter Oak Evolution" in the background on the same screen? Toei, make them twirl around the screen like the girls in the Precure transformations!

It is from a different angle though. Kind of...

They should make a battlefield scene, with Mercury attacking Enemy A, with Mars trying to deal with Enemy B later in the background, and the camera moves from Mercury to Mars...
