Ahh, nice purchase :heart: I only have the Serenity and Venus Twinkle Dollys but they're super cute. For the SH Figuarts, I only need Pluto and Saturn to complete the Sailor Team. I won't get Chibiusa because she seems so tiny for the price. (I just wish Saturn wouldn't be so crazily marked up these days!)

Any news regarding the season 4 movies for Crystal yet? I heard that both Osabu and Chiaki Kon were at Anime Matsuri.

Is that a new Naoko Takeuchi drawing?

Poor Chibiusa haha.
But yeah, she should be cheaper if she uses less material.

Disappointing. I wonder if they'll just go all 3d for these movies. Usually I'd be against it but after houseki no kuni (which definitely has similarly proportioned character models), I feel it could be done well if they're willing to spend the money.

I just don't want this halfassed switching between 2d and 3d. The last dragonball movie had that and it sucked.

Honestly, a lot of things related to the 20th-25th anniversary felt half-assed when it comes to Crystal and some of the merch. The new Myus, at least, were excellent from the ones I've watched!

Well, I never liked the direction they went with animating Crystal. They made all the senshi into moving stick figures, when in the original manga and the original (and IMHO better) anime, they all had different looking bodies, ad weren't some sort of different hair-colored cintoplets.

It's new from around the time of the Kanzenban Japanese release, so a few years ago.

And ugh, Crystal season 3 (Infinity arc/S) was a least somewhat better in terms of movement, etc, but somehow Crystal season 3 didn't really do anything to hype me up. Maybe it's because I prefer the original seiyuu to Crystal's or in the transition from manga to animated, something still felt lost :sigh: I do think some breathing room in Crystal's Dark Kingdom arc would've seriously benefited since the "new direction" they tried with Kunzite, etc, failed horribly when it was only 2-3 episodes to work with....

Having that invented romance subplot for all 4 guardians was stupid, given their vastly different personalities. Something like Venus/Kunzite only (or heck, Jupiter and Nephrite, too) is perfectly fine, but for manga Ami and Rei, that's pretty out of character....

Season 3 example:
SPOILER: Show
Before Saturn leaves and says her farewells to Chibiusa, her saying she "loved" Chibiusa....It was an addition that didn't really change much of anything. It just comes across as flat, instead. The Kodansha manga is "I'm so glad I met you...And I'm really happy that we became friends, Chibiusa-chan! Thank you...Goodbye." Why Crystal felt the need to throw in an "I love you" in there when it's pretty much implied, I'm :huh:


I'm just concerned what "additions" the Dream and Stars Crystal arcs will add, since it really hasn't done anything to blend the best elements of the manga and 90's anime together (which would make Crystal something special). This lack of understanding the characters on Crystal's part is more and more concerning.

On a lighter topic, I really love this fan site and their Trivia section, it has lots of fun stuff: http://seaofserenitysubs.tumblr.com/tagged/Trivia Their fan subs of the Myus and PGSM on their main page are pretty excellent, too. Some fans tend to like Miss Dream translations, but those are super wonky, honestly :sweatdrop:

My thoughts for the franchise overall is the following:

    ・90's anime and manga: IMO, both are equally excellent for different reasons. Anime for the character development and comedy, the manga for its drama and romance. SuperS (season 4) and Sailor Stars (season 5) is IMO where the anime started to sadly lose steam, though. (S (season 3) is my personal favorite season.)
    ・Sera Myu: From the musicals I've seen, they're pretty much that perfect blend of anime and manga elements that I've always wanted. I haven't seen them all, though, because there's sooo many from the 90's-2000's—and now those 2013-2017 revival ones. It'll be interesting to see what the upcoming 2019 Myu will be about!
    ・PGSM: I loved that it had more breathing room for character drama and development, though I'll forever have mixed feelings about Minako's character change and her plot cancer. Sailor Luna was just all sorts of wrong, though :lol:
    ・Crystal: Least favorite, due to the poor animation/characterization and attempts at plot changes falling flat. I'd love to be "proven wrong" and for Dream/Stars arc adaptions to wow me, though!

It seems that between Crystal and Dragon Ball Super Toei's new output isn't that good. I know there are fans of Super but it didn't do it for me.
I want to watch the 90s anime not only because I liked the manga, but also because Ikuhara worked on it (and with writer Enokido too).
That was just slme great talent to have working on the show.

Well, Crystal has been delayed for a year or two. -_- This just proves that Toei doesn't give a rat's ass about Sailor Moon anymore. Right now they just want milk the franchise for all the money that it's worth. The new merchandise is great and all, but I want something I can watch. But, at least I have the Viz dub blurays and the Eternal Edition of the manga to look forward to this year. ^_^

It's a little procey though, but I imagine it must pay off if you buy lots of SM merch.
Btw, I like Otaku Mode a lot. They always packaged what I ordered with great care. True for Japanese amazon as well.

Yeah I think this is for the hard core Sailor Moon fan personally who buys SM stuff a lot. Yeah I like Otaku Mode as well and I agree on how they package stuff and the mini gifts they throw in, I have not used Amazon Japan yet. ^_^
