Who was animation director for it? And character design looks much different. It is gorgeous, but even back in the day I couldn't find info. If all of Crystal was movies with this effort put on, nobody would have hate on it. This attack not making to Crystal is a shame, like it is not even Toei's production.

I dunno about that, but it's probably the best production released in the entire Crystal project so far. lol

I have to agree. The video is great and flawlessly captures the manga's aesthetic.

But sometimes I wish Momoiro Clover's Z "Otome Sensou" had been the official song. It is also a good song.

I asked Mercurius about this a few years ago since he has the single with the DVD and this is what he sent me.


@Rika-Chicchi, could you translate this? He sent me his own but I think it has a few names misspelled.
The official pronunciations of those names have to be searched on the net & I don't have the time to do so, ^_^' so here're just the translations of the job titles:

Original creator [of course everyone here knows how her name is to be spelt lol ]
Character designer
Director of drawing
Art director
Director of photography
Production chief
CG director
CG producer
Editor
Recording
Recording studio
Checking & correction
Director
Producer

So who animated it? :P

Agreed. I think what elevates is not just the animation and character design, but also the direction and storyboarding. Like everything conveys a specific mood and there’s so much being told in very quick cuts. There’s not a single episode of Crystal that even remotely approaches the direction of this music video.

Yup, if given sufficient time & a team of quality animation staff (both of which can be translated as sufficient budget lol ). :)

That director of drawing should be the animation director - Maniwa Hideaki, hasn't done anything for Crystal itself, which I hope changes for the movies

Yes, me neither. I am surprised he did the designs for an older I show I enjoyed - Lovely Complex as well as Osamu Tezuka's Buddah. so he has a thing for emphasizing on stuff related to shoujo style - like eyelashes, hair detail and pointy noses,

You would think that because they do show Sailor Moon's transformation and clips from episode 1 in this music video , that they could have also taken Moon Healing Escalation out of this music video considering it does look good and they could have saved money reusing it.

The main thing I liked about the MV were the scenes we don't have in the manga. It made me hope that some things will get explained and explored a little bit better. Unfortunately TOEI used the manga as a storyboard...
