I took a look at the trailer and made a comparison with season III. All the characters, except Ami, remain the same color tone (or the difference is so vague that I couldn't see it). And the color choice for Jupiter is very delicate, her choker, glove rings and boots have different color tone from her skirt (I think it was Sakou's idea, and was kept in Akira's design too).

I am not the biggest fan of Kagawa, he goes too round for my taste, his designs for the s an supers films go a bit too shounen for my taste and he omitted a lot of detail. Itou and Tadano on the other hand are iconic. Looking at this Itou and Tadano proportions are quite similar in face shape and proportions. Kagawa made the head huge.

Isn’t it great to see all those different versions? Eternal looks best, Sakou had the best shading+colors.
I kinda prefer S3 style which looks more Precure-ish. Eternal looks like it's been done before. Well it is going for that 90's vibe.

Eternal does look more better in the trailer. That one in the picture makes her arms look short and the S1 style have the right proportion.

found these on twitter (itoh/kagawa/tadano)

I don't like how Itoh draws the skirts, Kagawa is my favourite. Maybe because he adds some shounen to it (which especially fits Jupiter). In comparison I also don't like that Usagi, in all versions of Crystal incl. Eternal, looks so soft, dreamy, (lost). 90s Usagi mostly has this friendly and determined strong expression in her face. Also, her pose in this depiction has this light "I need to pee" with her legs. I want to see a strong Usagi!


EDIT: I only noticed now that finally the breast-armor is more visible. In all other designs it seemed just like the seam of two pieces of fabric.

I like the way Sakou did the girl's skirts. They look pretty. Tandano is best of course and Rei looks very unique. I like how Minako's personality flows just from her design. Seeing Jupiter's design in detail looks better too. They all look nice ....I really can't wait to see how they make the Outers and enemies look.

It's weird how the design sheets from the 90's anime always looked worse than in the actual show and art. I mean, Itoh's still my favorite, but it's funny how she already stopped drawing them with those tiny torsos by the time they actually started work on the episodes these forms debuted in.

Not to mention how much better they look in the Laserdisc covers:

Agreed - it looks like the one on this title character of a 70s tokusatsu series: lol

It looks better on him cause the colors don't clash. Dirty white on those breast plates clashes with silk white on the leotards. It looks like it hasn't been washed or there's this really ugly stain on it. :lol:

In fact, there's a color discrepancy on him, too, especially due to the plate being made of a different material, but at least it doesn't have that dirty look. lol

Especially Nehellenia. Cannot wait to see that wicked queen. And if they follow the manga we might see Queen Serenity and little baby senshi. I hope they keep that scene in the past.

I hope they won't use "Moonlight Densetsu" as the theme song but a new song instead.
And please use some of Crystal's background music to have at least a little bit of consistency...
I bet they will incorporate it in a way, maybe as opening song, maybe as ending song. I welcome using it as a nostalgic reference or in a key moment. I'd also love to hear a version of Revo of Moonlight Densetsu, he has this power in his compositions, I still find Moon Pride a great song (that guitar riff!)
Since the composer of the previous Crystal seasons is on board again, I have no doubts that the new songs will sound like reminiscent.

I love Moonlight Densetsu and I do not mind them using it again. My main concern is the fact the song has terrible versions in the past decade, with the only one I like is the Crystal cast one, which, however, is too similar to the classic version. I really hope it is not th Momo Clo one, it was so generic. If they use the song again, I hope is a different stronger version with good singer/singers that sounds unique and not a cheap mix.

Not that I think that 90s music cues that paid tribute to American 70s TV soundtracks should be reused or redone... But since Yasuharu is involved in the project, there's no need for you to worry. The church music is definitely in. :lol:

Call it whatever and yes, it is not the most original soundtrack, but it fits Crystal. The style will work fine with the fairy-tale like story. We have dreams, Earth Kingdom, Pegasus, Evil Queen, cursed princess, circus. That kind of back ground music would fit the story.
