I couldn't help it :-P

I'd like if it had the colors corrected to the manga's version:

The colors clash less than the 90s anime's did with the red gloves and such. I also hope that the blue parts are lightened because I've never liked how dark they are.

Don't worry, I'm sure that Crystal will make everything about Eternal Sailor Moon look as beautiful as she looks in the manga -- unlike the 90s anime, which really messed up her design.

Eternal Sailor Moon's 90s anime design was such a disappointment. Katsumi Tamegai made her torso too short, her legs too disproportionately long, round sleeves too huge, wings too bulky, and color scheme too dark. Too bad Ikuko Itoh left after SuperS. I would have killed to see her design Stars' characters.

Thankfully, Crystal should follow Naoko's sleeker design for ESM more. The only thing I hope they keep from the 90s anime design is the return of the gold heart in her choker and the Eternal Moon Article with the middle jewel being pink instead of yellow.

The anime made the pink shoulder puffs too big, changed the shape of the wings, and in general made the wings always look like that as opposed to occasionally using angel wings.

I'm just responding with your usual tone right back at you. This thread is not for discussing the overall quality of Crystal, yet you felt the need to once again express your opinion on Crystal's quality (or lack thereof, in your opinion). It's happening in LOTS of threads and it is severely uncalled for. You're entitled to your opinion and you're entitled to express it, but going off-topic for the sake of expressing the same old "Crystal is terrible" opinion is kind of overdoing it.

I want a totally new transformation sequence. I hope they will not use stock footage.


... but if they use stock footage, oh well, I will still enjoy it. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

If they follow Crystal's Season 3 henshins, then her eternal transformation will be cheap-looking without much thought put into it.

A-*******-MEN!

I do think that the collar being flat instead of floating like in the sketch above gives the top portion of the Eteral fuku a very boxy shape, and it looks off because the rest of it has no separation like the other fufu did with the chest plate or bow so the gumboil sleeves draw the eye in that direction.

It looks good in this sketch without all of the crazy colors though!

Agreed, the floating sailor collar vs. the flat anime one makes a big difference. I'm also noticing that in the sketch above, Usagi's face is slightly rounder/fatter in the anime version -- this is a nitpicky detail for the entire anime, but in this instance it doesn't do the Eternal design any favors.

The manga skirt also appears more ruffle-y to me, but that might be an optical illusion, not sure.

It's kind of understandable that the they went with a flat collar for Eternal Sailor Moon in the '90s anime though. A floating collar works for the manga since it's still images and Naoko always draws everything like there's a wind machine blowing at all times, but I think it would look strange from an animation perspective and would have made the design look more stiff than it already is.

I hope they do use stock footage. I like it when transformations and attacks that were also in the 90s use the same animation. However new attacks and transformations should be given new animations.

I understand liking a new interpretation of an old attack/sequence, but after Uranus/Neptune's transformations and Rainbow Moon Heartache not being too different in the former and the latter not measuring up I'd like a breath of fresh air.

I never realised that about the collars. So it should definitely look like the Sera Myu collars?

I'm sure her actual transformation and attack sequences will be different from the 90s anime, since those ones were so stiff. I'd be surprised if they didn't have her strike some of the poses from them, though.

I edited a screenshot from Stars with the manga colors and I think that it looks way better.

^Agreed, it looks a lot better. I guess Crystal will go into more of that direction color wise.

That's actually what her colors are supposed to be like, too. The scanners just distorted the colors to the point where it looked like she going to a German festival. :P
