LOL calm down

left has some interesting shadows and is overall more powerful and expressive. the white background works here better for me.

rights looks flat. and some of the faces and hair just messy.
I have to agree with Seira on this one - season 3 one has proper shadows, but this is basically the laziest way to do it, not to mention the same face syndrome - Ami, Mako and Minako look exactly the same.

Also I don't really have any problem with the Season 3 montage. The scene cycled through the girls pretty quickly and at that point near the climax you can tell the staff were getting stretched thin a bit as the animation took a dive... So shortcuts were inevitable.

But the Eternal version definitely looks a lot better. It's exactly what people are saying here. The animation of Eternal never quite reaches the level of the best animation of Season 3, but it also doesn't end up reaching the same lows as any of its predecessors.

I am calm. It's just funny that you think Eternal looks lazy when they took the time to actually draw each individual senshi in a different pose.

Like I said, these words start to lose their meaning here when it's applied to any instance of something you don't like.
Well, redraws can be lazy. Marco Albiero comes to mind :P
I think these discussions are always going to get us nowhere. The S3 character design is a pet peeve for a lot of people. I hate their profile shots and skirts, but I don't see the godawfulness a lot of fans see. I would pick it over the poor man's version of the manga Sako did anyday.
Tadano is generic, but would easily beat all of the other 2 up with a proper animation budget.

You do realize he was contractually obligated to do redraws of specific artwork provided by Toei and wasn't allowed to create new poses or concepts, right?
I didn't know, but I called what he did "redraws" and I don't see how that clashes with this fact you mentioned.
I didn't say anything about posing. They look lazy and uninspired to me, even though they don't look bad. And a lot of fans share this opinion.

I like Tandano...However, I do remember from the 90's...I think she did the last episode where SM fights against Doom Phantom. That episode always stuck out to me as one of the worse. Must have been the R movie taking most of the resources at the time? The R movie was pretty well done.

The best animation I've seen so far from the new bunch are the scenes from Eternal with Mercury's henshin and World Shaking.

I start4d watching Sailor Moon Crystal again, it's in English (unfortunately) and on Tubi and I was curious. The art ranges from bad to okay...there are a few great shot but I don't think the episodes I were watching were corrected.

The distant shots look really bad...like in one scene Esmeralde, I believe had no face...lol

Can you believe, December is almost here and then next year...Cosmos...fingers crossed for a trailer in December.

The one with Prince Demande? Sad to see him finally taking action but it looked like a really badly animated Dragon Ball episode. The projectiles looked very simple like drawn from someone in kindergarten..

How likely is it that we’ll get a new trailer in December?

Fingers crossed they won’t reschedule the movies for fall 2023….
Hopefully. As of now everything looks good and we are on schedule to get the movies as planned. I'm not for certain we would get a trailer in December but I just expecting it for some reason.

It's crazy we are finally coming to the end of this Crystermos era. It's been a long ride.

R looked pretty bad during the Black Moon arc, my headcanon is that they were giving its budget the short end of the stick in case the movie didn't generate enough revenue.
