I like that all the guardians get speech animation which was better than 90s anime.

Black Moon arc was mostly quite better than the 90s because Chibiusa is more tolerant even though animation isn't consistent.

Not much, since Toei didn't invest into it.

FifthDoctorVenus I am pretty sure their back stories were the same in the 90s anime as was in the manga via Beryl and the Shitennou. It just wasn't expanded upon however extra anime material seem to support their backstories.

But do the fact we have no proof of that.It's only speculation,I do not believe that Beryl,and Shitenu had the same past as the manga.As for the anime extra materials,there just extra media .

- The little cut scenes with the pretty art and flute sound.
- The graphics and art, its very nice!
- The youma are really evil looking and creepy as they should be.
- I like Rei personality more, she is a not as mean and hot headed.
- I like that SMC and its community has taught me so many things about SM I didn't know! For example, that Sailor mercury's fuku is sleeveless.
- I like how tuxedo mask seems to show more love and emotion.

There is so much more I really enjoy of SMC, and so far I haven't had any complaints or criticisms. My husband enjoys it too, and he likes the artwork and overall modern look. I'm sure I could come up with more likes but these are off the top of my head. :innocent:

People keep being negative about Crystal lately so I'm starting a positivity thread. No negativity allowed.

I liked how Crystal kept Princess Serenity blonde and gave NQS silver hair.

I loved the animation in the Moon Pride music video.

I loved seeing new attacks animated.

I loved the original character designs as well.

I loved the Utena style rose borders they used.

I loved the beautiful eyecatches, title card, and to be continued artwork.

I loved how beautiful the promo image for Crystal looked.

I'd also like to add that it's shorter so it's much easier to get into the story. It's difficult to get invested in the characters who aren't Usagi, but each arc is easy to get through and fun to watch without feeling like you're dedicating your entire life to a storyline.

A lot of the stuff I like from the story is from the original manga, so to save some space, I'll sum up by saying I like it's the faithfulness of the source material. Now that the obvious one is out of the way, down to more specific things. I like the animation in all three seasons so far. They both have their merits and downfalls, but they are not awful (I particularly liked the animation in episode 38 the best). The first two seasons have a glamourous appeal to them, while third season has the advantage of movement and the ease of switching to animate humorous situations when needed. I also like the opening, "Fall in Love with the New Moon".

I love Crystal! :love:

- The new designs and pastel colors
- The new voices (and old ones)
- The music is gorgeus

Im just happy we got Crystal in the first place. It took me awhile to get used to the 3D transformations, but in the end, they were ok too.

The story is A LOT more coherent than the 90's anime, which made little to no sense.
Also no horribly designed MOTD, which is a plus as well.
But that's about it IMO (well, I could say that it being closer to the manga is also good for those of us who haven't read it, so that too).

Moon Crisis Make-Up looks really awesome. It is a improved version of the 90's Crisis Make-Up
Sailor Moon's athleticism improved greatly in Season 3.
Double Moon Heart Ache!
Can I echo what some else said and say that Chibi-Usa is a very likable character in Crystal.
Super Fuku for all senshi early, like in the manga.
The Senshi were pretty able to stand their ground longer in Season 3.
Uranus and Neptune's ending has a long replay value.
I love how dark this season got a certain points. I enjoyed Tomoe's Flashback scene to when he swallowed the egg.
Magus Kaorinite
Kaorinite not being infatuated with Tomoe but actually competing for Pharaoh 90s favor.
Kaorinite's Monster Transformation
Never before scene fully animated attacks in the series.
Pink Sugar Heart Attack Pawnage.
Uranus kissing Sailor Moon
Neptune killing the entire Witches Five Team in One Blow.
Tuxedo La Smoking Bomber
Robo Hotaru
Skydive Mercury Make-Up
Dark Doom Close
The heart in Moon Spiral heart Attack, spinning like a pink twister of death towards the enemy.
Mimete's death.
Faster pace, (we get to each season much faster.)
Diamon Host. ( I love the way the Daimon take over people)
Space Sword Blaster vaporizing everything.
Venus turning into a guy.
Rei's birthday party.

Some characters are nicer , and we don't have any force jokes .

Rei is nicer No Usagi , and Rei arguing
Usagi, and Mamoru are matuer here
Usagi , and Chibiusa relation ship . They feel less like enemies, and immature siblings . And more like mother, and daughter or average sisters. ( The no bickering, and less arguing help )

-The music is amazing (At first I didn't like Moon Pride, but when I watched the first few episodes it grew on me and I'm so happy they went with that~)
-Seeing Sailor Saturn and just how they portrayed her was perfect
-real time attacks
-Usagi and Mamoru's relationship had more maturity
-the voices for each character worked so well
-the actual drama and moments where they really went there and proceeded to scare the pants off you, or make you cry like a baby.

That's all I got for now! :D

I love Crystal and yes I know that it has some problems and flaws, like every show does, but there are also some positives about it too.

Here's a list of some of the things I love about Crystal:

1. Unlike the 90s anime, Crystal follows much closer to the manga and I'm glad because I love the manga

2. Crystal is much shorter and fast-paced like the manga, some people might find it to be a bit TOO fast-paced with not enough room for character development. But I feel like the 90s anime was just too long and draggy, it's good to have some filler episodes to make room for character development, but the 90s anime just had way TOO many fillers and unnecessary episodes and it dragged the series on for much too long. As much as I love SM, but I honestly cannot sit through the entire 90s anime again, it's just much too long and draggy and I feel like watching it from beginning to end would be very tedious, I would skip some episodes. But since Crystal is much shorter and fast-paced, I can easily watch the entire Crystal series from beginning to end over and over again since it's so short.

3. I like how Crystal is so direct and straightforward in its storytelling, mainly due to the fastness of its pacing, it doesn't beat around the bush or take 10-20 episodes to introduce a new plot-point. Since the 90s anime had too many fillers and unnecessary episodes, I feel that the storytelling was very draggy and slow in the 90s anime. In Crystal they don't waste time, they get directly to the point in the storytelling, the story progresses along very quickly without wasting any time or space. Some fans don't like the fact that Crystal is so short and fast and hardly has any filler episodes hence much less room for character development. But I think that the 90s anime is just TOO long and slow in comparison. I would rather prefer they be more direct and straightforward and quick with their storytelling, as oppose to slowly dragging out the story for so long, so in that aspect, I prefer the fast-pacing of Crystal.

4. I may be in the minority about this but I much prefer the artwork and animation in Crystal, I think the graphics and animation in Crystal is much more beautiful, clean and consistent. While in the 90s anime, the animation and graphics were all hand-drawn by different artists, so the animation and artwork were very rough, raw and inconsistent and sometimes even rather ugly in the 90s anime. Since all the animation and artworks in Crystal are drawn using computer programs, the animation & visuals are much more clean and consistent. The only thing I disliked about the animation in Crystal was the 3D transformations in the first 2 seasons, but I'm glad they got rid of those and reverted back to 2D animation for the transformations in season 3. After they replaced Munehisa Sakai with Chiaki Kon as new director for S3, they made many new improvements in S3.

5. I love the soundtrack of Crystal, it has many beautiful music.

6. And of course the Japanese voice cast for Crystal are really great, I love the new voice cast just as much as the original Japanese voice cast in the 90s anime.

there are other things I love about Crystal, but I think these are some of my favorite parts about Crystal.
