It was a disappointment for me. I for one did not want a 100% faithful act for act adaptation for the manga which even Crystal failed to be. I would have been fine if they were more faithful then say the 90s anime was but I would have also liked some filler, character development, characterization, world building and expanding on plots, characters and ideas that weren't really expanded upon especially the villains. The villains on the most part have no real personality, characterization or development other then "ooh look how evil I am." The high ranking Youma Thetis from the 90s first season had more of these things in her short episode the many of the manga villains had at all. I would have liked something more akin to PGSM. Something that was more faithful to the manga but added, filler, character development, characterization and even new stuff to make the series fresh. I would have loved to see new Senshi for instance even though I wasn't really happy with the Sailor Luna stuff in PGSM. It would have made more sense to say make Hina Kusaka into Sailor Sun that would have been an interesting story.
I agree MariaTenebre even Professor Tomoe was poorly written he came out as nothing more than a MOTD in Crystal and as soon as the CGI transformations started I hated the series even more (I Hate CGI with the exception of Transformers Beast Wars and ReBoot), the artwork was Ugly, Rushed and as Rose has stated a few times you could probably sneeze on the Senshi and they would be finished off (that was also why I hated Dragonball GT all the characters were weak and everything was ripped from the original DB).
in the 90s Anime you knew Professor Tomoe or Dr. Tomoe in the original dub was the main threat until later on when Pharaoh 90 was introduced
