If Stars is adapted faithfully, it is going to be very similar to Madoka; the Stars arc deconstructs the magical girl genre, I always thought so.
The manga does, I love the final couple of chapters and the conclusion, the twist and all, but the building is terrible and shows how tired Naoko was. I t was rushed, and sadly it will feel even more rushed animated. If there is an arc that needs a lot of rework it is Stars. But a movie format might be just what it needs.

In the manga she states that her past life made a vow of chastity to Princess Serenity a vow which means one would never engage in romantic relationships or sex but she and Jaditie were lovers in Crystal soo...
I mean, properly speaking, "chastity" simply means not engaging in sexual acts outside of marriage. One who swears chastity can still get married and have a sexual relationship with their spouse should they so desire.

i think that Stars would need to be action heavy if it follows the manga to the T to make it good.

But it being flawed means that a movie format could flesh out certain things. These movies are already showing that they don't mind adding scenes.

Yes and the movie format will make it feel work better. All it needs is stuff rearrange. Like don't cut anything - just adapt the senshi death scenes happen simultaniously, let them have all their moments together, kill them in a big battle at the end of part one and focus on the rest in part two.

I dont like that change to be honest. Stars is great because of just how shockingly it flips the manga's formula, brutally picking off the senshi and highlighting Usagi's loneliness. Its a major part of the arc and i dont think it'd fit the thematic

It can be done better though. In manga you have your own pace. In anime you have dynamic presentation and nothing would hit if it follows that pace, Kill Them early on, explore the trauma. I think you understand what I mean.

Yeah, it makes sense to have one campaign for both. After all it’s one movie split in two parts and most people will probably watch both. As far as I remember they already introduced all characters of the manga. I guess next year there will appear new posters showing the outer senshi and eternal sailor moon
I forgot it's December already. :D:D:D

Тhis VR experience looks quite bad though. The models are really cute, but the CGI transition make it look bad and clumsy and choppy. Compared to the actual CGI models they created for the previous VR stuff these kind a remind me of season 1 CGi. It simply doesn't look whenever they try to make something designed and intended as 2d into cgi

God, that profile shot looks even worse in person. Okay, I understand that not every frame is going to be a masterpiece, but there is no logic in highlighting shots that look so obviously bad.

I'm going to say this as mangs fan. It would be a bad idea .If the guardians weren't killed where there supposed to be . Let's think about it the arc is about Usagi's loneliness . Having them be around longer would make the message feel a bit meaningless. There is no reason to keep them around. What character development?At this time their arc is complete .3We have enough characters. With the starlights, princess Kaguyuu,outers ,asteroid Senshi .I can tell you with attempts at writing a stories . It hard to keep up with a cast of many characters.

The only bad profile I see is the moon gorgeous meditation part. And yes, this one is pretty bad. Weren't they tracing Itou. The rest of the trailer, while still relaying on stills look pretty good to me, and they did much better at evoking manga pannels.

I was referring to the shot of Usagi and Mamoru in the park with the flower petals blowing past them. Their right eyes are bulging out so awkwardly, it looks awful.
