We all assume they want to make people like Crystal, so they decided on an old iconic designer, but why not Itou-sensei. Yes, Kazuko Tadano is the original designer and anything that followed was based on her work, but Ikuko Itou worked on the show the longest of all three character designers and her designs are probably the most iconic 90s look. Then her artwork was used on a lot of merch, including a 2019 calendar. Kazuko Tadano is not a bad choice, but why her? I know the obvious answer is availability, but I want to see other possible explanations, albeit speculation on that matter. Also just out of curiousity which one do you prefer personally based on their work on Sailor Moon alone?
