Do we know if they're going to adapt the fourth arc right after this? I don't want to wait several months/a year to see Fish Eye.

Eli Martinez

Most likely. Looks like they'll be doing all 5 story arcs

Eli Baker

I hope they do it right after like they did with Black Moon.

Then I hope they do Stars and Sailor V the same way.

Landon Jenkins

Let's wait until the blu-ray sales report come in, if it sells like hotcake then we surely gonna get 4th season.

(And remember, considering 3rd season still got greenlit despite how wrecked Crystal S1 & S2....4th season is very likely to happen.)

Nathaniel Nguyen

as long as they keep the director we have now, i'll be more than hyped for the last 2 arcs.

Fish Eye will last like, one episode and won't be voiced by Akira Ishida

Alexander Reyes

Good taste

Jose Watson

Fish Eye would be a one and done jobber just like all the other minions in the manga.

Brayden Johnson
Brayden Johnson

I think the only thing that needed fixing for crystal was the horrendous animation, and the pacing.
She's not exactly god tier or anything, but she earned my respect for fixing this show and making it fun to watch when it seemed to be going down the gutter.

Brayden Howard
Brayden Howard

You have good taste

Jaxon Morris
Jaxon Morris

I'll really miss Ishida's voicing of him

I loved the original anime version of Fisheye, and the musical as well. I wonder if that was Ikuhara's idea to do Fisheye like that.

Angel Jones
Angel Jones

It wasn't just the animation. The new director admitted that she was a fan of the original anime and you can see that. I hate to sound pretentious but the old director didn't manage to capture the spirit of the old anime.

My guess is that he wasn't too familiar with the 90s anime and because of his work on Precure he didn't want too much of an overlap with it and tried to give the show more of a focus on romance and a more serious vibe to further diverge it from Precure. The problem is that Sailor Moon's plot and romance is nothing to write home about, especially in the first two arcs.

Then there's just the plain bad writing and oversight. Never mind the embarrassment that was the whole Four Generals "arc", a scene from the manga would sometimes be changed but because they forgot to accommodate for that change later on, you'd be left wondering what's going on i.e: Usagi not being rendered crazy looking for the Silver Crystal yet still collapsing from apparent shoujo exhaustion as a result of that later on in the episode.

Matthew Peterson
Matthew Peterson

daily reminder that this happened

Landon Turner
Landon Turner

Fucking CR catering to special snowflake "genderfluid" tumblrinas. I bet they knew exactly what they were doing here.

Noah Gutierrez
Noah Gutierrez

Yeah you can tell the new director is putting passion into what she's doing compared to the old one.
As a sailor moon fan, its easy to spot another one and she definitely seems like a genuine fan of the series. You can tell she likes all versions of the story and tried to incorporate it into this new season and it works out very well.
And yes I agree, the romance in the first two arcs do get grating after a while, and it was pretty awful that they tried to put so much emphasis on it that they forgot the reason people enjoyed sailor moon, which was for the friendships between the characters, and their struggles with growing and adapting to their responsibilities.

And oh god, that Shittenou/Senshi romance plot they did was so badly written and all around awful. It's the reason I dropped out of the first two seasons of crystal. I'd much prefer them dying off like they did in the manga, no matter how much I love Zoisite.

Grayson Reyes
Grayson Reyes

oops.
Looks like they used the wrong hair color for Neo Queen Serenity
I don't blame them, it's hard for me to remember that her hair was silver in the manga, too. Especially since i'm so used to the blonde hair in the original anime..

Landon Foster
Landon Foster

I'm still disgusted.

Caleb Jenkins
Caleb Jenkins

People still watch this?

Jonathan Thompson
Jonathan Thompson

It is legit good now

Lucas Gutierrez
Lucas Gutierrez

I was trying to figure out why it was blonde in that scene when they've used the silver hair before

Owen Ross
Owen Ross

Yeah
And thankfully it's a good show, now.

Jack Moore
Jack Moore

I was trying to figure out why it was blonde in that scene when they've used the silver hair before
I don't think Chiaki gives any fucks to keep things consistent with previous Crystal seasons.

John Taylor
John Taylor

The only part I agree with you is that the previous director messed up by trying to hard to make Crystal not like Precure, which is bad because Sailor Moon is a precursor to Precure. And by focusing on avoiding being like Precure he failed to capture the very spirit of Sailor Moon.

To make matters worse he also wanted to avoid being like the '99 series which just made things worse since Ikuhara had a good understanding of the essence of the manga. So we were left with a soulless adaptation that just didn't feel like the Sailor Moon manga it was supposed to adhere to.

Austin Jackson
Austin Jackson

good
no sexy Chibiusa legs
Still not convinced.

Landon Russell
Landon Russell

I agree with this.
When I was watching Crystal seasons 1 and 2, it didn't feel like I was watching Sailor Moon. It felt like I was watching a soulless youtube animation with the professional voice actors attached to it.
It lacked so much spirit and energy to it that made the franchise great to begin with.
It's shocking what putting passion into something does to a project, though.

Lincoln Sullivan

This episode looked a bit wonky, but the preview for next episode looks awesome. I can't wait.

The senshi in the manga were ridiculously powerful.

John Williams

Chibiusa running towards Hotaru's was really well done.

Jacob Anderson

I was shocked at how well done that scene was, too.
I'm not used to seeing Chibi Moon being able to do things on her own, like that.

Justin James

It pains me to see how prude they have become about Chibiusa, so no, I'm not fine with that.
Also that long skirt is ugly as hell.

John Gutierrez

Minako is great except for the whole 'wanting to be raped gently' thing.

Angel Ramirez

That's because she's the best.

Anthony Reyes

She wants to put up a resistance because resistance makes the guy's penis harder, and that benefits her in the end.

Sebastian Williams

Noah Watson
Noah Watson

Even the voice actors feel soulless in S1 & S2.

While her original VA Kotono Mitsuishi voiced Usagi again, I didn't feel her spirit in the S1 & S2.

Yet in S3 I got the vibe of classic anime Usagi again, it might be because her voice doesn't feel forced as 14 years old girl now as S3 Usagi is more cheerful than in S1 & S2

Jace Green
Jace Green

Crystal's Hotaru just too seducing.

Jordan Thompson
Jordan Thompson

Kotono is clearly happy that S3 doesn't suck major balls compared to the halfassed first two seasons.

Luis Long

She looks amazing!

Leo Jones

Sometimes, the style just looks eerily close to the original anime, when they're not doing closeups on the faces, anyway.

Brayden Harris

Chibiusa a shit A SHIT

Joseph Sullivan
Joseph Sullivan

I just finished all of Super S for the first time.
Why do so many SM fans hate that season? I thought it was pretty solid, sure there was a lot of filler, but honestly it was fun to watch.
There wasn't as much Chibiusa stuff in this season that people were complaining about all the time.

Leo Baker
Leo Baker

which is what Mercury was originally supposed to be
she finally got to have her way and editor-kun couldn't tell her no

Brandon Powell
Brandon Powell

More than 20 years later and Sailor Saturn is still the best looking mahou shoujo ever created.

She's absolutely beautiful.

Jonathan Parker
Jonathan Parker

People seem to hate it for diverging from the manga a bit too much. There's the weird romance between the horse and ChibiUsa, even the horse is actually a boy. Then there was the lack of the outer senshi, which I think disappointed a lot of people, especially since their departure was a bit half assed.

The villains were nice though, and the monster of the day were fun. I really didn't mind them much unlike other seasons.

Daniel Anderson
Daniel Anderson

Saturn is fucking gorgeous. I love her.

I see. I've heard about how the amazoness quartet were supposed to be sailor senshi in the manga, so I can see how that'd upset people.
Honestly I thought Helios/Chibiusa was kindof cute to watch.
But yeah, i'm starting Stars now, sad that i'll be done with the 90's anime soon, and it's a sin that they kept the outer senshi out until this season started.

Lucas Perry
Lucas Perry

I used to be like you.
Until SMC season 3.

Caleb Russell
Caleb Russell

This.

It's amazing how so many things this third season did right.

Even improving Chibiusa.

I am stunned at how all this was possible. Hotaru and Sailor Saturn look better than ever before as well. Same for Mistress 9.

What dark magic did Toei used to achieve all of this?

Oliver Lewis
Oliver Lewis

Then there was the lack of the outer senshi, which I think disappointed a lot of people, especially since their departure was a bit half assed.

Which is SO odd considering Ikuhara would never shaft the lesbians out of the picture

Brandon Perez

But yeah, i'm starting Stars now

Get ready for Galaxia!

Liam Edwards

They sacrificed a good OST.

Can't we just overlook this small aspect?

Austin James

It's funny how Sailor Moon invented both Rei and the Death&Rebirth concept in Anime before Evangelion and only a few people realize it.

it feels like that's what really happened.
Saturn had enough of Toei's shit and destroyed the last animation team so the reborn SMC is great

Jaxson King
Jaxson King

Beautiful.

What's weird is that their current transformation music isn't even transformation music. It's not even general attack music. It's almost like music I would imagine being played maybe with a magical item appearing at best.

Eli Stewart
Eli Stewart

I wonder who animated Super Sailor Moon's transformation. If an animation director had fixed up more of the frames, it would have looked perfect.

Eli Moore
Eli Moore

I hope someone does this for the Saturn henshin.

Cooper Walker

It all just proves once more that Saturn is the best Sailor Senshi.

Jace Moore

Easy, they just had to sacrifice the budget of Pretty Cure and Dragon ball Super.

Isaiah Hernandez

Super
Good. That show is a piece of turd anyway. It even scrapped the whole Mai and Trunks thing that was in the movie.

Brayden Gonzalez
Brayden Gonzalez

They really hit PreCure hard, but I guess it did worth it in the end.

Cameron Murphy

I must say the transformation to Super Sailor Moon animation is kinda disappointing.

It wasn't bad, it's just it feels kinda descent.

Parker Wilson

For all these years, I still don't get why Uranus and Neptune treat Usagi like shit.

Nathan Peterson

Mai and Trunks shipping
I will never understand why people want this so bad.I also will never understand why the art for Mai changed so much.Drawing her eyes like Chi-Chi's or Pan's completely black losing the blue eye color,and the unique sexy-seducing shape.What the fuck was Toei thinking?

Angel Ross
Angel Ross

I think the hate also comes from the fact that the Dream Arc and Stars arcs were the best arcs in the manga.

Josiah Hughes

Jordan Bell

That's because she and the Pilaf gang turned younger from a wish granted by the dragon balls, ya dip.

Jayden Ward
Jayden Ward

Turning into a child doesn't change your eye color from blue to pitch black,knob-head.I can see the shape being a bit different because she's a kid again,but the eye color,no.I haven't seen one character[from any anime]have such a major eye color change like that,unless it's really shit editing.Just look at how they changed Ikuko mama's hair color[eye color also,iirc],and Neo Queen Serenity's hair color.But it's expected of Toei to always fuck up.

Jace Thompson
Jace Thompson

Stars is the best in both the anime and the manga.

Aiden Price
Aiden Price

Agree.

The lack of Mamoru and Chibiusa make the story somewhat enjoyable.

Jayden Martinez
Jayden Martinez

They're a lot more powerful in the manga.

It's kind of ridiculous how much more powerful they are. No getting kicked around or tied up by the daily Daimon this time around.

Blake Davis
Blake Davis

It's a shame that Takanashi is making no attempt whatsoever to honor the original's OST. Not even for a few select tracks. I actually really like Sailor Moon's transformation themes. The first season's and the new one but that's really it. The music whenever Kaorinite talks to the Witches 5/Pharaoh 90 is pretty decent but just about every other track is literally background music.

Jose Anderson
Jose Anderson

The old composer for the original anime died, so we'll never get our Charlie's Angels theme-inspired music ever again.

Liam Ward
Liam Ward

Is it impossible for them to re-use the old OST?

Nolan Edwards
Nolan Edwards

Don't think it'd be any kind of real issue unless it was contract agency or licensing work of some kind. Otherwise I just think they don't want to reuse it and it's as simple as that. For shame, because the music is exactly what got me into the series in the first place.

If I'm not mistaken, in manga she actually said that Uranus is a woman warrior with a strength of a man.

Josiah Johnson
Josiah Johnson

No moonruner, but she says "Uranus wa otoko de mo ari onna de mo aru" or something, sounds like the subs are correct unless it's some context thingy. I guess she just means that Uranus has powers associated with men and women as well or something along these lines.

Eli Reyes
Eli Reyes

I would probably read that as something like "Uranus [possesses characteristics of] both males and females"

Bentley Bennett

What is this?

Isaac Russell
Isaac Russell

This.

Stars is the conclusion and the climax of the series. Everything comes together really well and all the characters that take the stage actually have some relevance.

Kevin Nelson
Kevin Nelson

In classic anime the gender thing is actually more simpler because on her first appearance Haruka is confirmed as a woman that love to dressed as a man.

Yet in Crystal (and manga), it became ambiguous because Haruka appear in the form of man and woman in many occasions. And this just make the debate and confussion became endless.

Hunter Ross

Let's just chalk it up to Mrs Takeuchi is a hack writer.

Compared to manga or anime, was it enjoyable ?

Evan Brooks

dat Usagi
I remember I dropped this just from the 1st episode alone.

The actress who played Usagi just truly didn't have any bit resemblance with Usagi at all.

I know it's stupid to compare 2D with 3D as in no way a real people can 100% match with anime appareance. But at least they should have get the "bishoujo" part right.

Nolan Morris
Nolan Morris

It was a lot of fun and very enjoyable. It's pretty much it's own thing plot wise... It takes various things from the manga, anime and even the original Sera Myus.

They change Venus' character to be more of a loner who is already an idol... and Mercury is much more self conscious of her friendship with Usagi which causes her to get brain washed by the Dark Kingdom instead of Mamoru.

Honestly, I really felt like PGSM did certain things with the characters far better than the anime or manga. Especially with Mamoru and Usagi's relationship, it had a nice realistic growth from: I sorta find you annoying to I'm starting to like you into love. And this is all before they figure out about the Moon Kingdom stuff. I always hated that about the original anime, cause they never had an nice romantic moments that made their relationship not feel obligated. And the manga just moves too quickly to have any slow growth with them.

I HIGHLY suggest it; it had its cheesy and bad acting moments, but its worth it in the end.

Jacob Barnes
Jacob Barnes

Might give it a try, somehow that Mamoru & Usagi's relationship sound promising.

Isaac Wilson
Isaac Wilson

The soundtrack in this show is seriously underrated

Elijah Kelly

How so?

Everything in the original OST from the 90's show was miles better.

Christian Powell
Christian Powell

PGSM, the live action series.

Aren't there actors that /m/ should recognize?

Jaxson James
Jaxson James

PGSM is surprisingly decent, but it takes a while for the actors to get into their groove/for you to grow accustomed to the subpar acting. The SoL has a lot of goofy hijinks, the characters all have great characterizations with little twists here and there from their original incarnations and the character interaction is very nice.

It also does a mix and match with interesting elements in Sailor Moon that only appeared later on, like Venus having traits of the Outer Senshi, Luna having traits of Chibi-Usa, Super Sailor Moon, etc. so just seeing the new analogs is interesting.

Meh. They just throw in a chorus in an otherwise forgettable track and call it a day. I've seen people praising the "EPIC" chorus on Youtube so clearly it worked but I'm wholly underwhelmed by the soundtrack save for a couple tracks.

Eternal Eternity is the only good piece of music out of Crystal.

Speaking as someone who until today had never seen either the original anime or the new Crystal one:

I watched episode 1 of each series today and goddamn, what the fuck did they do to the art style in Crystal? I can see that they may have been trying to follow the art of the original illustrations but it comes off as being really low budget

What do you guys think of these changes?

Jayden Long
Jayden Long

Do you mean the change from the original anime to season 1-2 of crystal?

I thought that if the animators actually cared in the first two seasons, it probably would've looked stunning.

But there's obviously a reason why the art was so simplified in the original anime, and that's because while Naoko's style was pretty, there was no way it would be translated into animation, well.

This is why they had the characters redesigned for the new season of Crystal, and it looks 10x's better.

Brody Hernandez

ok then, user. New viz dub for the 90's anime took me for a loop too when I first heard it and I hated it, but I got pretty used to it after a few episodes. And plus, hearing that old OST from the og anime is comfty as fuck. It's hard to imagine someone missing out on that.
I'd suggest you'd try it out

Dylan Williams

You'd really need to know about the story of the silver millenium, and other things that happened in the first 2 story arcs in order to fully enjoy the season.

Sailor Moon's plot is nothing to write home about

Seriously, I've never seen anime do classic tragedy better. Sailor Moon is at its best when it takes itself seriously, it's just the weak writing, development and characterization that makes Crystal (and the manga) such garbage.

Blake Rivera

She has pretty much the most complex personality of any character in anime. I have no idea why the hell you are so dense.

Jordan Morgan

I've heard about how the amazoness quartet were supposed to be sailor senshi in the manga, so I can see how that'd upset people.

This is a completely irrelevant detail that doesn't matter. I don't know how you'd complain about the anime adaptation of the arc, yet also hate that it just specifically doesn't do this particular thing.

Connor Jackson
Connor Jackson

This arc is where the story really started to get good anyway.

That's the problem. They had the opportunity to make the first two seasons fantastic, given how important they are and how much focus they get through the various adaptation, but they chose not to do this and just let everything be sloppy as hell. The later seasons work well for what they are, but the first season is the meatiest part of Sailor Moon by far.

Hunter Edwards

Good, Chibiusa is a title that no dub should ever use as it makes no sense in English. The old dub was right to use Rini.

Jonathan Taylor

They just throw in a chorus in an otherwise forgettable track and call it a day.

Usagi's transformations were always shit music wise. They would have been far more fitting for Sailor V.

Asher Clark
Asher Clark

I'm watching the dub (which I'm sure is sacrilege here)

Great, but yeah, people here will shit all over you for it. Enjoying DiC Sailor Moon is perfectly fine, as long as you recognize that it's basically a completely different show from the original.

but I just like the English voices, particularly Usagi/Serena's

Serena's first voice is excellent, and you're more than right to prefer her to her Japanese actress. I don't think anyone else has played her with that kind of energy better than that or made her spaz out scenes work as well. Having said that, while some of the characters are done better in the dub, the the Japanese has a far wider variety of interesting characters overall.

And plus, hearing that old OST from the og anime is comfty as fuck
DiC pulled off many musical themes well, but the dub soundtrack gets overbearing and repetitive fr more quickly and and up leaking the variety of moods the Japanese has, even if certain themes and song sections make select episodes more enjoyable.

The whole anime is basically completely different, all the characters are different people with different personalities, everything is rewritten, certain villains are replaced 'the negaverse' (which is the weirdest aspect of the dub by far) and most episodes are re-edited to show different scenes in different orders, with scenes from later or earlier episodes being frequently edited in different places. The whole thing is remade to feel like a Canadian Saturday morning cartoon. Like I said, it can be quite fun to watch in the right mindset, but you shouldn't be ignorant of what the show is like in Japanese.

Image related isn't shown in the old dub, sadly.

Colton Murphy

Serena's first voice is excellent
Yes I do like it, but I've read ahead that the voice actress changes over the course of the show. First is the best, second is nice but the third really falls off the rails from what I've heard. I'm not looking forward to that one.

And yeah, I understand how it's different. The 'Saturday morning cartoon' feeling is actually the feeling I'm looking for as I enjoyed watching dubbed Pokemon and DBZ when I was younger and I suspect they were similarly edited to 'westernize' them. I'm fine with that, just like I was fine with death being replaced by the shadow realm in Yugioh. But I'll give the Japanese version a shot at some point too.

Adam Nguyen
Adam Nguyen

Yes I do like it, but I've read ahead that the voice actress changes over the course of the show.

Yeah, I was about to mention that, as it really is a big deal. The first cour is the most enjoyable part of the dub mainly for this reason (though I think she also comes back for Jupiter's intro episode). I really don't care for the actresses that come after her and it really robs the dub of what would otherwise make it stand out positively.

I completely forgot to mention the 'Sailor Says' parts, though there's not much I need to say about those.

Were Saturn and Pluto's roles in the story originally supposed to be reversed?

It would make a lot more sense to have Saturn appear in the Black Moon arc and have time powers, and Pluto to be the edgy senshi of the "forbidden planet" with death powers.

I know the outer senshi didn't even exist in Takeuchi's original idea of the story, but it sure seems like some things got mixed up when she decided to extend the story past the first arc.

Of course, but it still stings that they treat her as a kid actually now, and not a child beautiful soldier like before, or in the manga.

The flashback from Chibiusa's POV in this episode was Neo Queen Serenity. Could be an error in hair color or a decision by Kon?

As for last episode, that didn't appear in the manga. I'm guessing since Serenity is officially the heir to the crystal and revived the Moon Kingdom, they wanted to reflect that on her character. She wont be queen until she marries

Wow, bro. You are either me or stealing my bit. I'm the only guy around here who likes the Doom Tree arc, but that's because I'm not one of those Naoko manga worshipers.

They depress me. They're all female, and they all love Stars the most because of Usagi and Seiya's friendship. It tickles their girl brains.

Easton Rodriguez
Easton Rodriguez

I'm the champion of Super S, bro. It's the Naoko manga worshipers I talked about in that hate it.

Like says, it "deviates from the manga", so they hate it and claim it has too much filler. As someone who doesn't care about the manga, I say what you say: not one single episode in Super S felt like filler. The whole season was a joy to watch.

These Naoko people are irrational about Chibiusa. Chibiusa had been wonderful since S, but since they are women who evidently have this weird little sister trauma from their own lives, they can't get over how she was in R. It triggers them to see Chibiusa have a big role. It must remind them of when they were kids and their parents gave their little siblings more attention than them.

They hate the lack of outers too, but I'm not too knowledgeable about why. I think it's because they're "deeper" characters than the inners, and they like Naoko's "deep" melodrama. These people want Sailor Moon to be a miserable emotional experience, just like the dudes who always want things to be grimdark and edgy.

Jeremiah Ross
Jeremiah Ross

Always a safe bet.

Jacob Sanders
Jacob Sanders

well yeah, like Naoko said the manga was more targeted at girls so it's no wonder they enjoy that more.
Personally I like the anime more, and any pairing other than Mamoru/Usagi, (like Demande/Usagi) But only because Mamoru is boring as shit

Samuel Garcia
Samuel Garcia

I say what you say: not one single episode in Super S felt like filler. The whole season was a joy to watch.

Another Super S lover chiming in, it really surprises me how uncommon this opinion is. The way people go on about it, you'd think every episode was "Chibiusa and friends the show", but it's nothing like that at all aside from the MC and her daughter getting a double billing as protagonists.

they are women who evidently have this weird little sister trauma from their own lives, they can't get over how she was in R

Yeah, I do despise how R handled her, but in SuperS she has a genuine maturity such that I have no idea why you'd complain about her. The biggest issue with her overall is that her existence means that, up till Stars, you know that anything that could potentially result in her not existing is just not allowed happen, which screws over so much plot and development potential.

They hate the lack of Outers too, but I'm not too knowledgeable about why.
I get why they'd be bummed at the lack of things like, Hakura and Michiru raising reborn Hotaru, but given what the anime did having them leave arguably makes more sense in its continuity. Really, the way it leaves them out really makes the events of S feel like they have finality which Stars basically robs us of, though that's another issue. Naoko's drama, for all the faults it has with its writing, really is deep and the closest thing anime really has to Greek tragedy proper. Sailor Moon doesn't need to be "a miserable emotional experience" (nor would I argue it should be), but having large scale climactic drama is one of the best things about it. Yet precisely because of this, the honest respite SuperS provides in being character focused SoL between more dramatic plots only further affirms it in my eyes as being one of the better seasons.

...

Christopher Johnson
Christopher Johnson

Exactly
Super S wasn't as bad as people were exaggerating it out to be.
I actually really enjoyed the relationship between chibiusa and helios.
The only thing that did bother me was Usagi's obsession with Mamoru, but I know that was done for humor.
The filler was a joy to watch, I don't think there's one I completely hated compared to other seasons.
I feel the only people that hate this season are, like most people said, chibiusa haters.

Colton Baker

The filler was a joy to watch, I don't think there's one I completely hated compared to other seasons.

And yes, that's a notable thing I have to bring up. Very little of the season is actively bad, especially compared to other seasons. Despite the lightness of the overall plot, there is just very little to honestly object to.

The first cour of episodes was surprisingly good, I'd even say shockingly so. I don't think there is a single run of episodes outside of this that are as consistently solid, to the point that I anticipated every new episode straight after finishing the last and devoured them like popcorn. What really makes it for me is that the show finally returns to the quality of focus on character that the first season had, and actively goes back to exploring the lives of its cast in ways the other seasons did only occasionally. Seeing the show actively address things like Reika's relationship with Moteki and Yuichirou's betaness was just an absolute delight.

Another thing that caught me off guard was how much I actually enjoyed the MotW. Somehow, it manages to be the one season where the MotW are so off the wall and meta that it genuinely is funny instead of just lame and repetitive.

I can't help but feel that overall, SuperS was a return to form of much of what the show lost sight of after the first season's ending and in that way is positively endearing.

This is also why I thought S3 Usagi is the best Usagi compared to overly childish Usagi in classic anime and over-serious one in S1&S2. They balanced her personality now.

As cool as that would be, and as often as something like fucking Evangelion gets refurbished and remastered, fat chance. They most likely want to sweep it under the rug and move on, and hope you just continue to buy the merchandise.

Classic tragedy is all about how it's written, not the actual plot. If you just take SM based on the narrative, it's only interesting as heavily obfuscated sci-fi, e.g., speculating on how the apparently magical elements function as highly advanced technology. The sailor suits are nanotech, Saturn is an AI failsafe, the Illusionary Silver Crystal is a hyper-advanced quantum computer also running on nanotech, etc. Lensman for chicks.

Wut?

Classic tragedy is all about how it's written, not the actual plot.

How it's written is certainly important, but the writing needs a plot to hang itself off, and this is something that cannot be downplayed. Aristotle, Wagner and Nietzsche each recognized the importance of plot. It is plot that enables the free-play of morality to be introduced into the rhythmic drama of tragedy to achieve its full effect. It's the possibility of this moral aspect, and the the tension caused by its ambiguity, that really makes it work.

I think it might actually be beneficial that she dies along with everyone after destroying the world.
She'd be pretty messed up in the head if she survived all those nukings that she had to do.

I can't never get enough with the bromance between Usagi and Minako in the classic anime.

Sadly, we will (almost) never see it in Crystal.

Hope they will make the one where Minako goes into Rei's school though.

Jacob King
Jacob King

Minako went into Rei's school in the manga? Never knew this.
I also assumed that Minako and Usagi don't have a very close relationship in the manga like they did in the 90's anime

Sebastian Turner

There's a special chapter where Minako is tempted to go into Rei's school because she want to became a cool beauty like Rei.

She wasn't officially enrolled to there though, she just using her transformation tool to transform her uniform into Rei's school uniform and slip into the school.
