-The Music
Ahhh the music is great! <3 I really liked the opening and the theme music that plays during really pivitol moments in the episodes.

-Concise episodes
Sure, the show could probably draw some things out, and I wish it put in the effort to put in things that Naoko Takeuchi wanted to put into the show but couldn't because of deadlines, but I really appreciate the lack of filler that doesn't advance the story in any meaningful way.

-Better characterization of Mamoru and his romance with Usagi.
I never hated Mamoru in the classic anime, but I always found him rather dull (and oftentimes rather insensitive or unimportant)

-Senshi x Shitennou
...Need I explain this? XD I love these pairings so, so much. It's really rather poetic in a sense too, since it's basically Mamoru and his guardians paired up with Usagi and her guardians.... Sort of like a counterpart to Mamoru and Usagis love.

-A more mature Usagi

And... overall, I'm just glad that it isn't trying to be the 90s anime. I know a lot of people are disappointed that it isn't, that it doesn't reference the 90s anime much (if at all), so on and so forth, but I'm really glad it's something different but undeniably Sailor Moon. Sailor Moon has so many adaptions; the manga, the anime, PGSM, the musicals, and I think Crystal is making it's own place in that lineup. If I wanted the 90s anime, I'd just watch it.

I also appreciate that Crystal tried to animate Naoko Takeuchi's drawing style, and although I don't think it translated the best, but that's okay. xD

It's Close to the Manga - No filler , the main story is always progressing , the Manga main events happen

Music - I'm a fan of the OST , and enjoy the music alot . Black Lady's theme is so hauntingly beautiful .

Art Style - I like the art direction and style , when it's done well it looks beautiful .

I love most aspects of Crystal, but I think the character designs are probably my favourite part of the show. They truly capture the "pretty" aspect of Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon, which had not been seen since the manga IMHO.

The design and the music all senshis were prettier than the 90s of course and Venus' voice is a little younger than the 90s in the music, I only dislike senshis aren't as strong as they were in the manga... :keke:

- A stronger more competent sm/usagi
- Chibiusa/ Black Lady ( better characterization)
- Art style, when consistent is very appealing
- Neo Queen Serenity (better characterization)

Huh...

Surely the artwork. It does look pretty good and more modern + you dear nostalgic ones who dislike it since it's not the 90's one, please consider moving on.
Faithfulness to the manga. While I dislike the manga + manga Usagi a lot, it is extremely charming + pleasant. It is also pretty good to see this version of the story animated.

That's pretty much it, I guess.

-The art style. I love the new designs for everyone and think they look great. I also love the use of red outlines for dark things. It looks really neat.
-The faithfulness to the manga. I'm more a fan of the manga than the original anime and I love seeing the pages get animated. It's a really nice experience for me.

Those are my strongest points as well.
I love to discover the art book pictures in it, eg. Human Luna /Shittennou and Senshi. I like this original design much more than the former anime version.
I also prefer the faithfulness to the manga including some more of Naokos ideas in it (eg. Shittennou, more background), she couldn't write into the manga before.
There are no annoying fillers.

It's all about the author's handwriting - we get to see the Originial in living pictures.
That's just great!

I also like the fact that Usagi and Chibiusa became more symphathetic characters.

The music is great as well.

I'm really looking forward for next Saturday. :)

- the dresses
- Minako taking a distinct role
-Usagi's characterization is pretty good!
-ChibiUsa
-Mamoru is given a bigger role

How seamlessly I can watch half an episode, hit up the manga, and continue in glorious black&white with speech bubbles.

It would be, but, strangely as it feels to me, I just feel more at home reading the manga rather than watching crystal.

They nailed Chibi Usa. In fact, I think this is the best rendition of her character to date.

The backgrounds are gorgeous. Whoever is drawing/painting them deserves a raise for their awesomeness.

The voice acting rocks.

And last but not least, they are faithful to the original source material. I've always wanted more of that in my media. Some of the frames were panels taken straight out of the manga, which I think is awesome.

It's pretty and doesn't rely to much on stock footage.

My favorite thing about Crystal is the watercolored background, especially when used during the introduction speeches. They are very bright! :love:

- That SenshixShitennou was at least included, even if it was executed pretty badly
- The music
- The character designs
- The voice acting
- An Usagi I actually like, rather than her being my least favourite in other adaptions
- Same with Chibiusa actually

- Chibiusa was less annoying

(Yeah, that's all.)

I agree with these aspects most.

I also agree with most points with previous posts so i won't emphasize them again, except Senshi x Shitennou. I'm fine with villains' personality though.
I'm probably the only one who is glad that this adaptation is not overwhelmed by inners everywhere constantly.
I love the development my girl got :setsuna: :love:
My favorite incarnation of Black Moon Clan.
If a 2nd season happens, my most favorite things are yet to come :mameshiba:

Well Beryl pretty much had the same part in all adaptations of the show although in the 90s it wasn't expanded on as it should have been.

Now that it has ended and I don't have it anymore, I miss everything about it.

I liked everything.

Well does anyone know if it is going to be renewed for another season? They still have more arcs to cover.

Surprised I didn't post in this.

I love Chibi-Usa
I love how the Senshi can fly and do attacks mid-air.
More real time attacks
Despite some issues with pacing, I do like how it doesn't meander around.
The art is still pretty to me.
Some of the music is catchy
Chibi-Usa looks awesome as Sailor Chibi Moon

Though I have had problems with Crystal, I do miss it as I woke up expecting another episode only to realize it was over...lmbo :neutral:

My very favorite thing about Crystal: it gave me a handful of Sailor Moon episodes I hadn't watched before :love:

I also liked the HD resolution and animation effects (although I prefer the old design of the characters, at least of some of them)

Black Lady. She stole the show for me. Such rage! Such diva! Crazy voice Wiseman was a lot of fun too.

I like the 90's versions of them in equal but different ways.

I really like the background music. I especially like the music played during the DK arc during those Usagi+Mamoru moments. It sounded like a harp. Does anybody know what that music is and if it's on Youtube?

Overall, I mostly prefer the original manga over the 90's Anime, so that's a good reason to prefer this adaptation of SM, although there actually ARE a few things I like better about the 90's Anime, such as the Sailor Moon R Movie, which I wish WAS in the manga!!

I agree, Maria. I feel that Beryl should have been a back story on why she became evil in the first place. The same goes for the Four Generals/Kings of Heaven.
