This looks like something done cheapily for Usagi's birthday, honestly. There's no way this would be stock footage even in an ONA, let alone a theatrical release.
I agree. Feels like this isn't the final product yet. Just something to show off on :usagi:'s birthday.

Also negative criticism provides page views and likes (or dislikes in this case). :lol:

What I'm really hoping to see is the new Mercury Aqua Mirage. 90's really botched that one.

It is terrible. Some nice frames here and there but you have to really looking for them. The hair animation is dreadful, though. The cuts are weird and amateurish. While the final pose is good overall, it s still worse than the SuperS and the gorgeous background for it is quite missed by me.

But this is not done for the event. It was done last year. I will check the date, but I remember it on that Yasuharu's video. So let's not get delusional. Yes, Novermber 2019 they had some of this done more or less wayback then.

i read your comments first and watched the video to be prepared.

tbh, no surprise here. i could already tell from the images and teaser that this movie is not going to be a high quality product.

I am not an animator and making an anime is a lot of work, even SMCrystal was. I‘m just sad the quality standards for Sailor Moon are so low, for such a big franchise. For an audience that is adults.

I‘m on this forum and following the franchise mainly because of the Crystal/Eternal project. Today I wonder why I‘m wasting so much time on it.

It's not perfect, and this might be the fact that I've been quarantined for over three months now, but I absolutely loved it. It's likely unfinished, since the opening brooch segment seemed lacking in detail and the transition from Usagi and Chibiusa's far shot to Chibiusa kissing Usagi's cheek seemed abruptly cut. I'm quite happy with what was shown, hopeful it's improved on for the final product, and dreaming that I can actually see this in 2021.

While I don’t like it, I don’t hate it. I’m weirdly indifferent about it. I think that Toei is so confused about what to do with sailor moon. They try to do something different is season one (badly) and then progressively revert to the 90s anime because I think they are afraid to try anything different now. What frustrates me is the pretty cure gets such wild and cool transformations and sailor moon doesn’t. I just don’t get it why does Toei put precedence on everything other than sailor moon??????????

I cannot believe I am gonna say that because I was always very protective of Crystal/Eternal Series since the beginning but here… Com’on it's beyond RIDICULOUS.

We are waiting since 4 years to get A BAD COPY/PASTE of the EXACT SAME TRANSFORMATION than in the 90's??? Some redraws are even better on YouTube. I cannot believe that they COPIED absolutely EVERYTHING... AND we are speaking here about the worst transformation sequence of the old anime Serie…

Well… I mean I was quite disappointed already in Crystal Season 3 when they were copy/paste transformations or attacks sequences… but somehow it was not that much because, THANKS GOD!, in the 90’s anime the Inners didn’t get new transformations or attacks in the S Season (in opposite to the Manga) and the Outers have different attacks in the manga OTHERWISE it would have been probably the SAME STORY about COPY PASTE….

I understand the need to acknowledge the old anime… I have no issue with that BUT CERTAINLY not like that…

Well at least the storyline will be totally different than the old anime (for sure right? or… )… But I’m extremely disappointed for the rest… The only original things in the first part will be then maybe TWINKLE YELL? IS MOON GORGEOUS MEDITATION also used by Chibi Moon in the manga part in this part of the story? I don’t remember…

The second part of the movie (if it’s really coming… because the Backlash is already terrible now) will bring some new stuff like Saturn’s transformation (or are they going to copy the old one from the Saturn Sega game lol?) and the Sailor Quartet…

If it's true that Kazuhiro Ota is returning for this, there's a good chance they got him to redo her transformation like Shida did with Chibimoon for season 3.

Never heard about that before.

Did they really cancel and redraw the Chibimoon transformation for the Season 3 version ? It would make sense yeah because her transformation sequence was not a copy/paste of the old version… and I loved it (same goes for "Crisis Make up").

Well hopefully the Crystal BACKLASH will be helpful this time...

Not terrible. I have a problem with colorimetry. And in addition I have a feeling that the image is always whitish, the colors not vivid.

The transformation in anime 90 was much more detailed ... It's a shame to want to copy style 90 and not invent a new one.

Because if it is to copy paste, as well take up the design of the time too and not make a new one.

Not exactly but Shida did both versions from seasons 2 & 3 and since Ota did Saturn's half-transformation in that season, maybe that's why (or part of why) he was brought back, to do another version for Saturn.

I also don‘t like the soft color palette. Doesn‘t suit the style. But I guess the pastel palette is supposed to look pretty.
