Thought this series needs a bit of love as I'm seeing a lot of negativity.

So simple really, but why do you love Sailor Moon Crystal? Is it the story, the writing, the music the VA's all of the above?

Me ---> It's the Manga come to life on my screen. :happy: :love:

Like you, it's the manga animated more accurately.

It's also more expressive towards the Mamoru/Usagi pairing. And I feel the character development is stronger than the other anime as well.

For me, it's the updated graphics. Not to mention how the fandom has really come alive; it's awesome to see so much new fanart, fanfics etc.

I love it because it has so much heart. Pretty animation and a great story that follows the manga more closely are part of it, too. Great character interaction, and the characters feel more real than the first series, in which they were very over-dramatized. (Usagi's antics were over the top, Rei and Chibiusa were brats, and Mamoru was often nothing more than a rose-throwing show-off. In the S season the outers weren't treated any better. Haruka had an attitude problem, Michiru was a stereotypical Mary-Sue and Setsuna was just... there. Super S continued to go downhill and actually undid a lot of character development from earlier seasons. Minako in particular seemed to go downhill a lot) For all that, I really did enjoy the classic series but Crystal is far superior in my opinion. Dropping the monster-of-the-day formula was an epic win for all parties involved. Watching Crystal makes me see just how well the story can be done when the characters are written like actual people and not cartoon characters. And the music, the MUSIC! So much better than some of the cheesy background scores used in Classic. I hope they go beyond a mere 26 episodes because this show is GOLD.

To keep things short and sweet: I love how it's the manga in anime-form with a few new surprises to keep old fans on their toes. I'm especially excited for the bluray releases!

Like everyone else, I love finally having an animated version of the manga! I appreciate their attempt to make one episode per act of the manga. I feel the character development (at least in their specific episode) was done well. And Act 5 made me fall in love with the series with its absolute perfection. :love: I like that Mamoru finally has a personality. Wow!

When the art is at its best, it's much more pleasing to the eye than the 90s anime was.

It's more faithful to the manga but with some of it's own twists (general surviving and who knows what else)
The new graphics are gorgeous
Music is great
Voice Actors are nailing it so far
Live Attacks ! (Flower Hurricane and Mars' fire attacks look sooo good )
New and improved transformations
We see more of Mamoru
Dropping the MotD format helps it feel less repetitive

I can go on and on ......

For starters, I love the fact that is a new rendition of Sailor Moon. That alone is #1.

Other things I love:
-Adjustment for technology: CD instead of floppy, Usagi has a laptop, Ami has a tablet, etc.
-Mamoru Chiba: he's now younger than me by a whole decade, but he'd be legal in Japan at least. He's the perfect combo of nerdiness and hotness.
-The attack sequences.
-When they transform, I love seeing the part when the tiara shows up: a big improvement from the original scenes.
-The Dark Kingdom looks better.
-The Kings of Heaven are still alive.
-Ok, I kinda like the new opening song.

I like that it has brought SM back onto people's radars. Whether or not we think Crystal is that great, the fact that everything else has been made possible (dubs, re-release of the 90's anime, new merch, livening up the fandom) is enough to be thankful for.

As for the particulars about the show itself, I like the lack of filler. I also like real-time attacks, which make the show more fluid.

To be honest my love for SMC stems from my love of the franchise as a whole but as for the show itself I think the art is quite pretty, some of the music is enjoyable and its good to see a "modernized" version of SMC.

The art style has a lot of potential.
The music is fantastic, and while I miss the old cast, these new voice actresses are great.

I haven't commented on here yet, so here goes.

Usagi: I'm in love with this Sailor Moon, flawed, but brave and with a pure heart.

The fighting scenes are epic.

I'm in love with the romance between Usagi and Mamo.

The interactions between the girls are very charming.

I've been enjoying it, and it's been a great way to get friends interested in Sailor Moon in a new way.
I have one friend who is hooked, and it's interesting for me to see the story unfolding for someone with fresh eyes.

"That V girl lied!? You mean the derpy one is THE MOON PRINCESS!? That sooooo came out of left field."

No joke. So funny.

I found that for my friends Crystal is easier to get into and more interesting for a new comer . I showed my friend the 90's anime but he lost interest because of all the filler.
But he loves Crystal ! And like you said it's awesome seeing their reactions to the story and hearing their theories on what they think is going to happen .

I hated her in the 90's anime but liked her in the manga, She was a better and much less annoying character so she should be fine in Crystal !

Since this is following the manga story line truthfully with minor slips/ revisions (like the 4 knights not dying immediately) I'm loving it! Every time an episode ends I immediately go back to the manga version of it and compare how much percentage was adapted and most of the time it's almost the same down to the last detail. Chibiusa will be less annoying here so can't wait to watch her as a favorable character :D

I have recently re-gained a interest in Crystal! I can't wait for Pluto! (why hasn't no one seen what I'm doing yet?)

I originally thought we were going to see her in February but it turns out it's in April instead.
