I wonder why is Usagi wearing an apron. Chibi Usa is so pretty in her teen form I kind a start warming up to the idea of a sequel with her. The night scenes do look amazing in Eternal so far.
Kinda dumb question but are these from the first part or the second? I never finished the arc but I thought Chibiusa and Usagi swap back before the part of the arc where part 1 ends, or am I mistaken when does it leave off? lol ^^

Books aren't really comparable to manga. One is a visual medium the other isn't, so the way they're adapted to screen is completely different. The fact that Crystal is (or rather claims to be) a carbon copy of the manga is supposed to be its selling point, but these movies are basically the manga with half of its scenes cut out. It's not appealing to the fans who wanted a faithful adaptation nor is it appealing to the fans who wanted something original.
There's only been three minor scenes cut in Part 1 so this is a weird take.

I live in Japan and wrote my thoughts earlier in the thread

I’ve not read the manga but from summaries I’ve read it follows the mAnga structure and scenes closely.

That being said it’s a 70 ish minute movie after credits and cm are cut.

With following the manga closely the pacing is off they could have been a little more fluid in direction.

End point
Spoiler: show
just after Venus gets her power up at the audition and Amazon quartet trap all the inners


re pacing
Spoiler: show
they gallop through the inner power ups with no time to breath or reflect and this feels rushed there could have been a little more leeway here but I guess this is following the manga so manga purists will be happ

If movie director can adapt a 800 pages book in 2 hours movie like Harry Potter they can adapt a manga without problem in 2 x 70 min movies... That the secret of a good adaptation...

And if the movies are huge success on Netflix (what I think) I'm pretty sure they will adapt them somehow in a TV Serie... That could be also ONE reason why the movie are called Eternal and not Crystal. This is basically what happened with DBZ movie "Beerus" and "Freezer" and the creation afterwards of DB Super.



You have no reason to believe that.... wait till I least you see one of the movies before already being negative about them....
The reason why Dragon Ball Super adapt "Beerus" and "Freezer" on the TV anime was because they need to show these arcs for new fans who didn't see the films. After all, these arcs will be important for future arcs.

There won't be a reason to adapt Dream arc again, since it only lack Stars to complete Sailor Moon..


We are all agree anyway that a TV Series would have been better. But the quality would have probably been totally different... If the Netflix deal is successfull maybe it will happen somehow :)
Honestly, I really doubt this will hapen.

If Sailor Moon is succesful on Netflix, it is more likely they want to create its own version (like Knights of Zodiac for Saint Seiya). They will likely start from Dark Kingdom again.

What bugs me is that they decided to please manga purists instead of writing a script that just feels right in pacing. They will never win any award for the movie with such basics like a narrative structure done wrong.

Aren‘t there general movie reviews in Japan from people who are not Sailor Moon fans? What do they say?

They weren't trying to please Manga purist.This is how new anime adaptions are now.They try to be as close to the material as possible.This is not Sailor Moon the re imagining.(I do heard though promise never land is getting anime only scenario.With the author supervision)

In Promised Never Land’s case, it’s most likely for an anime original ending since a lot of manga that get adapted don’t always cover the full series.

But yes you’re right, with exceptions like that one (and that’s because some manga are just so long running), most anime nowadays are very faithful to the original manga.

A.manga.is.not.a.storyboard.

"As close as possible" is good as long as it makes sense. Certain things have to be adapted to a certain level.

How many times do we have to go in circles. This is the way Crysternal is going to be till its over. It is not perfect, they are not going to change the formula with its run. We haven't even seen the movie yet. Plus what no Sailor Moon fan would go to watch the essentially 4th season of it?
Not trying to sound shady but a lot, if ticket sales are to be believed, at least.
