It looks amazing even without color. The artist who did this added a lot more animation than it exists in the original and completed it alone in just one month. He single-handedly put TOEI to shame!

Here are some of his online accounts:

Here's a side-by-side comparison of the official and the fanmade opening.

Watching the two side by side, you can tell not only that they added a lot more animation/movement, they also fixed Toei's error of Sailor Moon still holding the Moon Stick in this opening. If only this person were part of Crystal's actual official team, so many errors would have been avoided.

The 90s style just fits Sailor Moon more.
I disagree somewhat, Maria. Rei, I think and maybe Michiru look much more beautiful in the manga's art style.
Well I always thought that the manga and the 90s anime's styles were fairly close on the most part. I mean the manga's style resembles more of the 90s anime then it does any season of Crystal. I mean look at Beryl for instance. Yes she has more of her manga styled dress on but physical feature wise 90s Beryl looked more like manga Beryl then Crystal Beryl did.

That's true. It's bewildering that some people can't see that.

I am absolutely in love with this! So many little details were put in, like Venus attacking various Droids from the 90's anime instead of generic villains.

Worst episode of '90s Sailor Moon >>>>> Best episode of Sailor Moon CrystalImage
Oh really???

I don't think you made this thread for a good purpose. It's just for satisfying your hatress towards Crystal.

You really didn't miss any chances to insult Crystal, did you?

This fanmade opening is very impressive and I enjoyed it a lot. But the 90s anime was far from perfect and it also suffered a lot from inconsistent art styles and animation errors and off-model character design work.

I don't think that the 90s anime was perfect. It did have it's share of flaws. That being said Crystal had a chance to correct some of the flaws from the manga and they failed. Also I find it funny how people claim that Crystal's art style in either the first two or third season was somehow more faithful to the manga when in reality the 90s art style resembled the manga more. Crystal had more of the manga's physical trinkets but the art style is not close to the manga.

I don't really care what version other fans think has the best art but it is nostalgia bias to proclaim the 90s anime as some perfect godsend that would solve all wrongs if only Crystal was animated in that style.
