I really like how this interpretation gives a lot more color to all the characters. They clearly have issues (i.e. Mako's parents, Rei's dad, Ami's insecurities, Mamoru's engagement). It makes them more real and easier to relate to. I didn't think I'd like this live action and I was expecting it to be cheesy.. but on the contrary, I find that I almost prefer it because it's so much deeper on the emotional level and it really hits the spot! They've done a terrific job rebuilding this story and making it exciting and new for people like me, who know all there ever was to know about Sailor Moon.
