Should there ever be a new Sailor Moon manga?

This is your experience with the fandom. I had pretty different experience and observation. I remember when Crystal first trailer came out, just on Youtube, it had way more views than most popular shounen trailers do - I remember like 2 million views in a week. It is still on the official youtube channel for reference. It is normal for people to compare Crystal with old show as they are both anime. Comparison doesn't mean I want it all again. People compared designs and animation because thdy have no other refference. Trye there are some 90s anime blind fans, to the point claming the Viz provided quality, and play it blind to their lies on how the Japanese Dvds look with fake laserdisc screen shots, but again this is the USA point of view. There are different fans. I have met a guy who said only cares for S season and doesn't like the rest. There are people who will never accepting new. The fact Crystal didn't present itself well contributed a lot. The problem is not the girls doesn't look like the 90s, but the fact the designs for some people were not as flexible and too stiff. The problem was not that the girls don't have 90s personalities, but the fact they don't have any. The problem is not that the 90s coedy is missing, but the fact there were but tired jokes here and there. Etc. People compare. It doesnt mean everyone and their dog wants the 90s anime. It has bee n around for 26 years after all. Nobody I know reacted or complained about Moon Pride music video, which shows that people just want quality.

Agreed, that's why I was disappointed with Crystal, not because it wasn't like the original anime (I KNEW it wasn't going to be like that), but because I wanted something new that gave me the spirit I was watching a fun, enjoyable Sailor Moon anime program just like I did with the original anime and I got instead one of the most poorly made anime ever. And oh boy, it was hell to be a Sailor Moon fan around that time, and all those rabid Crystal fans I met who didn't understand why I wasn't happy with it and harassed me for my opinions of liking the original better, I know many rabid Crystal fans like that, and they all were pieces of [BLEEP]. Though I've never met people like that in my life, I'm sure they would probably be like one of those snotty rich kids back in high school who would talk [BLEEP] to you for not following the clique everyone else had agreed on, or like one of those rabid Go!Animate fans who attack you for hating a stupidly hilariously bad drag and drop software. I've had a lot of bad experiences where I was attacked by some who would take authority over me because they thought they knew better than me or thought that they were tougher than me, throwing around shitty excuses like "nostalgia goggles/if you were truly a Sailor Moon fan", all that to where my first instinct is that I block them after I hear that so they don't bother me, and I didn't even attack/harass them (though I would tell them "Piss off" or insult them back if they insulted me). It's not fun being treated like an outcast or underneath people who couldn't care less for you. Hell, that's why I'm actually sometimes afraid to post my own opinions, I fear people will harass me or treat me like I'm stupid.

I myself though, wasn't too big of a fan of the Moon Pride music video. The animation was alright, but I can only say "passable".
