Well, since the new series of BSSM, which is SailorMoon Crystal already aired a few episodes so far, I guess, it will be nice to make a forum to hear from the fans what they can say about the remake of the series.
I'd like to ask the Minitokyans, especially the fans, what are do they think the strengths and weaknesses for both the older version, way back 1992, and the 2014 version. I also would love to hear what they love about new series and their reactions over the transformations.
SailorMoon fans or not. All Minitokyans are welcome to post something about this forum.
For starters, I honestly love the art of the new series because they made the settings very dreamy. It's indeed highly improved! Maybe because the technology nowadays is also very high compared the early 1990's. I love the transformations and I love the harmony of the colors. The transformations I think are more realistic by nature and the art is not already crude. It will only have 26 episodes and the story so far follows a good plot compared to the older version where there are lots of filler episodes, losing me to the tracks and interfering me from understanding the deeper points of the story. On the other hand, the art may be great but for the characters, the girls are indeed prettier and even the other characters are now well-designed, but I am not really impressed with the slender legs. I mean, yes, Sailor Senshis have slender legs ever since, but not as slender as now which I find not realistic. For me, this is one strength of the older version I'd like to point. The girls in the older version has voluptuous ad curvacious body which I find more realistic than the art of the 2014 version. I also love the battle screams of the older version as they unleash their powers compared the new version. 2014 version has wonderful effects for the powers but I guess, I am afraid I am not that contented with the scenes as they summon their powers.
I also love the fact that Usagi's original Japanese voice actress is still the one dubbing Usagi's voice for the 2014 version. Her talent is indeed undeniable! She dubs Usagi now like it's not 22 years ago! For this I give Miss Mitsuishi Kotono a standing ovation.
So far, this is what I can say about the SM Crystal. Have a great day ahead everyone!
