Why Kazuko Tadano and not Ikuko Itou?

Speaking of which, Hisashi Kagawa recently said something similar in an interview. Although apparently he did some minor work on the first Crystal opening.

N: What do you think of Sailor Moon Crystal? Given the announced return of Kazuko Tadano to the series, do you think that sooner or later you will be asked to return to work on Sailor Moon?

HK: I have not received any proposals so far (Ride). But I think that since this is a new anime, it would have been a shame to do it with the old staff, the original one of the 90s. It seems correct to me.
But I'm very excited and curious about the work that will be the teacher Tadano on Crystal, because after all she was the first character design of Sailor Moon and worked on the series of the 90s from the beginning. It's been 25 years and I'm very curious about how it will be his return to this work.
However, I actually worked on Sailor Moon Crystal making some key animations of the first opening. But it's really about minimal stuff.

Ando really isn't all that bad. His animation was really smooth (he's responsible for Crescent Beam and Burning Mandala with Tadano correcting his art) and his characters were always expressive.
I just don't like his art style & all - it looks too childish to me & the faces often look deformed too. :ninja:

I think you mean the guy behind S I and II eps 9 and 17. Even Ando wasnt as bad

The top pic looks fine to me in a way. I think this was the episode she was sick if I believe. The bottom picture looks strange. I haven't see Crystal in a good while but Jupiter's face looks strange?!?! Her eye or something?
Think I may go wwatch S1 & 2 again.

Good lord,. Looking at the site posted above....going to the Crystal page...some of the errors are terrible. They must have been under a lot of pressure. Hopefully those were in-between frames or something since I don't remember most. I remember Mars' had that word ugly hand pose for speech in Season 1 & 2. Thank goodness it was corrected in S3

The guy who animated the Viluy episode in the old anime was the worst of them all IMO. His/her work was wildly inconsistent. Some parts looked like it was Ando's work, others looked like a different animator was behind it.

It was done by Hideyuki Motohashi and I don't find him as bad as Ando
