Same. I dont want them to keep the design. They need to be more refined. Hopefully, the curiosity of people will peak like the first episode of Crystal Season 1 and we get up to hundreds of thousands to a million eyes looking at it and Toei will be like, "Let's drop some more dough into this and more skilled animators."
I hope we have future anime projects beyond Stars, that's if it becomes hugely successful and if Naoko Takeuchi will allow it. I doubt she would bother writing any new material for it though and if she will alow for Toei to jointly work on a new storyline/material.
No shade to the Sailor Senshi, aside from Sailor Mars looking really good, Helios looks really, really good. Im not too sure from the trailer but Pegasus looks a little bigger when Chibi-Usa is on his back.
Im not sure if I'm reading the website correctly (wait, I'm not reading it at all, I can't read Japanese) but it seems the movie will play in a lot theaters in Japan.
Im excited. If it does get released in America, I'm getting tickets no matter the cost.
Lazy reuse of 90's Moon Crisis Make Up (also looks like they reused Venus' Planet Power but it does look like they redrew it to be neater and sharper) and Mercury's brooch still being incorrectly drawn as a circle instead of a heart during her attack sequence, it looks pretty good, animation is far improved from the first three seasons, and during the scene with the Power Guardians (YAY ) I like the detail as if is underwater, it's kinda almost like a combination of the manga version and reminds me somewhat of how the 90's version episode (Episode 151, best episode of the season) depicted it when Ami was standing on top of water, a way of bringing back nostalgia for the original anime somewhat whilst still being faithful to the manga. Hope it turns out good, the manga arc for this was the best arc, and Toei Animation is actually trying, although it only might just meet my expectations and not exceed them if it's just a shot by shot imitation of the manga arc, although unlike the first two arcs (and parts of the third arc), which felt to me like they ended up being made boring and unappealing, it actually doesn't look like that's the case here.
