I've heard lots of people complain about the transformation but I thought it was really cool! XD

Since its a "reboot" its mainly just a prettier version, but I liked it a lot and will watch it all as it comes out.

I'm actually a bit disappointed :( the facial expressions are not funny, like in the old Sailor moon series...they are too stiff and emotionless! With that, it's missing some funny drama the old series has... On the other hand, the animations are pretty cool :) but that's not enough for me to watch this through!


Gonna watch the old series instead... ^^

This is not comedy and this won't be "funny"

Its far closer in tone to, let's say, Madoka, than it is to usual mahou shoujo bs.

I hate the CGi transformation scene. Everything else looks okay so far. I'll probably keep watching it just because it's Sailor Moon and hopefully enjoy it...

The animations look good for the most part. I liked Sailor Moon's transformation sequence in this version. As for the character designs, it will take some time to get use to them. I thought that the storytelling of this first episode was better than the first episode of the old series.
Armageddon was yesterday, today we have a problem.

Why, it's not bad. It is really OK, the only huge problem of the whole premise is: why do they do a remake of the original series? Why not something new? Remake Sailor Moon is doomed to lose against Sailor Moon TOS, if only because the one is the one we watched first and partially grew up with and, simply the real one. For that reason, in comparison with the old series Crystal has to cede victory in every point.

(Now for the nagging criticism, I apologise in advance)

Most importantly, am I the only one who cannot stand the new Mamoru? He is not annoying, but he is not Mamoru anymore. It was one of the great assets of the first season, that Mamoru was the big meany jerk who squabbled with Usagi in every episode, until by and by the animosity became romance. The sparks between them, the screwball quality. The new Mamoru so far seems even less interesting than the Supers' or Stars' one.
And, on the chance that I am wrong, I remember Tuxedo Mask's identity being a secret in the first season, and himself more of an ambivalent character - the jewel thief, who is not clear to be either enemy or ally of Sailor Moon.

The body proportions are quite unpleasant. Not that TOS would be perfect, but the legs are at impossible lengths now, and did Usagi's head shrink in comparison with her hair? And Mamoru looks like a magical girl heroine himself (which would be neat if the magical girl heroine had more...aesthetic? proportions)

What is up with the introduction of Usagi to her powers? Oh, magic, fight monster,ah done. THe fast pacing is certainly good and necessary (considering they are doing the same bloody thing over again), but a few seconds more might have made more of an impression.

I loved the original Sailor Moon for being funny. Sailor Moon first season probably is the best Magical Girl parody ever made, and it is hilarious. Throughout the first twenty episodes it was a as funny as any show could be, but still true to its characters, had emotional grip and got the message about the strong Sailor Senshi through. Tuxedo Kame always saving Sailor Moon in the last moment, and the necessity of anyone to tell her to do the final strike where running gags which I didn't favour much either, but it didn't really matter. The Sailor Senshi saved the world and died and everything.

Actually I won't complain about the voices. They are not the original ones (so they get second playe by default), but similar enough.

I do not Remeber Usagi's and Naru's moms (and the English teacher) to be that, eh... young and stylishly made up. Neither do I think Usagi used Lipgloss unless she disguised herself. Just complaining, just complaining...

Opening and Ending actually are quite good.

Couldn't they have given Umino a more grateful appearance (physical and character)? If he's a good guy, why didn't they serious him up a bit? (Why didn't they make him Tuxedo Mask - now that would have been surprise)

Fine, rant is officially over. I have to add that I never came far with the manga, so neither can I judge nor appreciate much how faithful Crystal might be to it. What I would have loved to see instead of another remake is how the Sailor Gang continues with their life. If it is supposed to appeal to an older audience, why not older characters? What will they do, how will their vies and characters and friendship change? Sailor Moon College would have been much more amazing than Crystal can be.

Amazing episode!!

It's really similar to the first episode with minor differences.

First off, i do agree that the funny and laughable atmosphere is gone now and now we have a more serious tone which is great :)

I love how in the first TV series Usagi was thrown out of her home by her mother during the day, but here it's night time signifying that school is now over.

I love the body proportions and facials which match the original manga, but Usagi doesn't seem expressive here compared in the TV series. She no longer do those bubbly faces when someone makes fun of her and all.

Tuxedo Mask's voice is okay, but i really prefer Furuya, Toru voice. Maybe because i just finished Gundam 079 and Zeta Gundam last week, but he really grew with me in the TV series as well.

I love his arrogant voice in the TV series, especially when she said to Usagi to study more when he saw the scores of her exams.

Now it seems he doesn't have that arrogant attitude anymore, which is a shame really. Maybe Kenji Nojima will sound more arrogant in future episodes, but we will have to wait and see.

I love how the morning it was all happy and good, while at night it became dark as hell which adds to the maturity of the show.

The CGI transformation was actually pretty good!! Even though i wish they made it 2D like what Precure does and only do CGI when using a new attacks or so.

I know people will complained about the CGI transformations, but you'll get used to it like i did in Precure.

And why the hell didn't they used Moonlight Densetsu!?!

Momoi Clover Z just released their own version in the 20th Anniversary Album.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-n-VFA0FAs

So why not use this on the new one as well??

I hope they put different music in each episodes since there's only 2 per month.

ED Music is amazing though!! Love the animation as they walk the stars!!

Overall fantastic episode!! I cannot wait for the next!! Still wish it had a PV though just to kill some of the waiting time T__T

I forgot about Luna's and Usagi's voice!!

Usagi's voice is still amazing!! Mitsuishi, Kotono still has what it takes to voice Usagi!!

I love how cheerful and happy she is just like she did the first series.

Luna's voice is good as well. Hirohashi, Ryou did a great job portraying her, but i just wish Megumi Han voiced Luna just because she's the daughter of Keiko Han who voice Luna in the TV series.

Similar to what they did with Lalah in Mobile Suit Gundam-san series where Megumi Han voiced Lalah instead of her mother.

Though she's already Cure Princess in Happiness Charge Precure, still it would have been an amazing homage to pass down her mother's role to her own daughter for the new generation ^^

Good stuff either way!

Remake Sailor Moon is doomed to lose against Sailor Moon TOS, if only because the one is the one we watched first and partially grew up with and, simply the real one.

For the same reason Fullmetal Alchemist was remade and for the same reason FSN is getting a remake - to make an actually faithful adaptation this time.

Most importantly, am I the only one who cannot stand the new Mamoru? He is not annoying, but he is not Mamoru anymore. It was one of the great assets of the first season, that Mamoru was the big meany jerk who squabbled with Usagi in every episode, until by and by the animosity became romance. The sparks between them, the screwball quality. The new Mamoru so far seems even less interesting than the Supers' or Stars' one.

He is not supposed to be annoying jerk since the whole amnesia bullshit was an anime-original storyline in the last one. He does have a bigger role than being a silly rose-throwing plot device this time though.


And, on the chance that I am wrong, I remember Tuxedo Mask's identity being a secret in the first season, and himself more of an ambivalent character - the jewel thief, who is not clear to be either enemy or ally of Sailor Moon.

That remains true, although to even bigger extent than in prvious one.


(considering they are doing the same bloody thing over again)


Its not the "same bloody thing". The differences in first episode already showcase that - there's no amnesia filler, Usagi has different personality, there's less comedy and it won't take ~10+ episodes to meet the other senshi either.


I loved the original Sailor Moon for being funny. Sailor Moon first season probably is the best Magical Girl parody ever made, and it is hilarious.

THen you will hate this one since the original material the previous version failed to adapt has more in common with the likes of Madoka Magica in terms of tone.

Throughout the first twenty episodes it was a as funny as any show could be, but still true to its characters, had emotional grip and got the message about the strong Sailor Senshi through.

YOu mean in the rare moments when they were not being saved, protected or portrayed as generic vain girls?


Tuxedo Kame always saving Sailor Moon in the last moment, and the necessity of anyone to tell her to do the final strike where running gags which I didn't favour much either, but it didn't really matter.

Yes it did. It was incredibly sexist and went against the very message the manga portrayed. The whole point is about what essentially is an all-female super-sentai team who can protect themselves and kill badguys in badass ways.

Too early to tell. For now some people speculate (including me), that if the new adaptation follows the manga 1 ep = 1 act it will cover Dark Kingdom and Black Moon. On the other hand I've found some info, that the Studio is planning to add some new materials into SMC, that Naoko Takeuchi couldn't/didn't implement in her Manga. Besides that we got plenty more room for stories like "Codename: Sailor V" and others. Although I think it would be more fitting, to make these Specials or Movies. Still everything isn't officially confirmed yet, so we need to wait :)

We already seen the new material - its the dream sequences - the studio simply said that they can foreshadow things before they happen better now since the whole manga is finished.

Better looking Characters: Nope.


Graphics: Yes
Voice: Sailor Moon's is the same voice actress.
Character design: Yes they are a lot more sleeker.

Sorry mate, but being critical for the sake of it (IE. being an anime hipster) is so yesterday. The old series art whilst very lovely is extremely outdated by today's standards. The old series is beautiful but not even arguably as refined as the new series.

The only thing you can really bitch about is the CGI being a bit shameless, but no one is trying to hide it. It is what it is and it's wonderful despite an objection some seem to have of the use of it.

I think Sailor Moon fans should be grateful they are doing an ENTIRE remake, not just going down the Dragonball Kai route. Humanity is so greedy.

You mean Toei is so greedy by not putting any effort or money on this one, just so they can get an amazing turn out when the merchandise will sale like hot cakes?

And lol @Anime hipster. I really really waited for this show, and after delay and delay, we got this half assed attempt. I think people have all the right to be disappointed.

Oh please, I am calm as hell. I sense someone else seems to be taking it quite hard when someone's not jizzing their pants of excitement of this adaptation.

I never said that I wanted a "xerox of the silly comedic previous version."
I just wish Toei would put some effort to this show I (and many people) have been waiting for a long time.
And not take a piss on the old fans, by changing every darn voice actor to save money.

Wait, so you first say you don't want a xerox of the silly comedic previous version and then go on saying you want the old VAs lol.
I would have prefered if they changed Usagis too because she isn't what she used to be (and so aren't the others).

Wait. Since when has wanting the same VA mean wanting the exact same show?
And just to repeat. I am not complaining about the story. I'm happy they adapt the manga. But I am complaining about Toei not giving a fuck about the show.

Anyways I'll drop out from this "Discussion" as it seems it's not going anywhere. I'll just avoid this anime discussion completely. Since this seems to be one of those "Don't you dare complain about this adaptation. And if you do, you're an anime hipster who only likes the old crappy series and wants to hate this lovely manga adaptation" discussion threads.

i'm watching for the nostalgia factor, but i like it so far.
the opening is pretty catchy and upbeat
the character designs were well done, and closely follows the manga as you'd expect
can't really say about the plot since i haven't read the manga and it's only the 1st episode. because they're following the manga very closely it's unlikely they'll mess up
the voice acting seems fine to me, i don't see how it's annoying to some people.

above: the VA for Usagi is the same one from the previous seasons

Very happy with this first episode, and still loving how utterly failing-at-life Usagi is. I was originally not to pleased about the fact that the transformations wuld be CGI, but watching it again I think it's okay (it would just have been sooo much better hand-drawn).

The transformation wasn't even that bad.

Its nice that they brought back Kotono Mitsuishi to voice Usagi, but man, its gonna take a bit to get used to. (shes gotten a lot older and it doesn't help that shes voicing for a high school girl) LOL

All in all, pretty good first episode. All them childhood memories just coming back~ *o*

Okay I'm pretty much in agreement, the CGI parts of this show (mainly the transformation) are bad. Number two, I'm really missing the original theme.

Other than that, its still Sailor Moon. Welcome back Usagi!!!

And also, I can't wait for MAKO~CHAN!!!!

I have to disagree with most. I thought it was a great start!

The character designs are a lot closer to the manga. The new voice actors were great. And I for one liked the CGI transformation, it reminds me of the current PreCures.

Definitely a lot closer to the manga story wise.

I can't wait for more. I hope it does well and they do the manga in it's entirety. Including the side stories. And it would be a bonus if they threw in the Sailor V stuff, maybe as an OVA.

10/10!

Urahara Out!!

I did not come here on the nostalgia train since I have zero prior knowledge of Sailor Moon. So reading all these comments feels like when you don't get a reference or an inside joke lol. But as someone new to the whole thing, I guess I liked the episode. It was fun and entertaining.
And Usagi's voice felt a little weird at times, but wasn't that bad considering the fact that the voice actress is nearing 50.

A bit underwhelmed, it was an okay episode I guess. The character design, I'm not a fan of. I'm completely open to modernizing the style, but I feel like the design is more tailored for children's anime than anything. The opening was pretty good, and the ending was alright. Some voices really aren't quite what I'd prefer, but I guess that's what you get with a remake of your favorite series. Anyway, I'm hoping to be pleasantly surprised in the following episodes.

Very glad this is back, I really enjoyed this! Very nostalgic, I used to watch this show 15 years ago so I'm so glad that I have the chance to be watching it now. I enjoyed the opening theme song and the OST that played when Sailor Moon did the moon tiara attack (or whatever it's called). Either way, I enjoyed it and I can't wait to watch more episodes. I'm very pleased with this show so far. I love Sailor Moon!

Not sure seemed kinda average. Mostly the same to me. The OP and ED was quite improved. ED Mostly. Original OP's (All of them US/JP) Were all good too though. The main part of the show in a way did seem downgraded graphically. While others parts a bit newer. Not exactly better. The music is better than the JP version.

You can tell the similarities to Smile Precure. A lot. I've seen a lot of other Precure's but the music is so similar to Smile's.

Not as bad as I thought it would be but not too sure what the point of this was yet either. Not too different so far.

Remake is here? Ow man have to watch this.

(Watching).....Oh Usagi...still same as ever. XD I heard that this remake will follow Manga more closely. That is OK, tough honest I liked Original Anime more than Manga, =p and so this Remake hs some serious expectations to defeat to overcome my fond Memories of childhood when first Anime was showed in TV. (and Yes, Sailor Moon is so famous that first Anime was shown even in Scandinavia)

Opening...is OK, but still like First Animes OP MORE!!! XD CG of this new Anime, well when they are attacking it looks awesome, but other wise....Meh. Overall, OK /Good start of the Remake, but still wasy to go to defeat first series.

Ah finally it came. The OP song was pretty good imo but I'm not used to the transformation scene yet.

Good to see Usagi back though of course :>
I think I spotted Tuxedo in a silhouette scene in the beginning. Nice. I notice how clumsy Usagi is already and her childish personality is pretty cute. Really awesome OST so far as well. I noticed they didn't waste time introducing Tuexdo Mask either. Cool.

IN THE NAME OF MOON, I'll PUNISH YOU. Ah, that line is so classic.

I don't like Usagi or this series' CGI. Usagi has never been my favorite anime character. She's wack, she's twisted and she wins her battles with asspulls.

(Spoilers and fangirling, by the way)
I definitely fell in love with the episode! How it's animated, especially at the transformation, (an unpopular opinion though...) some of the scenes were awesome, especially in Usagi's first battle, some of the things around here remind me of myself, and best of all, the opening and ending was great! One of the best episodes ever, I absolutely recommend it!

This was good, I really liked the HD quality and sleeker artstyle, but the original dub still feels better than this to me.

This is SO CORNY! hahahah it's corny but tolerable, you know classic anime is still the best even if it's not good.. because they started it all.. they are the first who make a concept that so popular now.. I watch it to reminisce my childhood, I was not able to finished the original Sailormoon, so I watched this reboot version (cause it's more faithful to manga) the fighting scene is so funny! haahah just one beat, they already defeated.. and the transformation thing, it takes so much time and enemy can attack them but they did not :D Usagi is such a crybaby! so funny to know that her power is just crying :D and the love story is so cringe hahhaha
It's not good but I still watch it.. hahaha nostalgia hits me.. whatever, corny or not.. i still love classic anime :D
