As a part of the 25th Anniversary Project, another sequel anime to Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon Crystal has been announced. More information will be announced later. Another musical for Fall 2017 is another part of many announcements.

Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon is a classic bishoujo manga from the '90s and was adapted into several anime series. The new Crystal series, based on the manga, streamed from Summer 2014 to Summer 2015, followed by a third cours in Spring 2016.

Have yet even to finish that remake S1, but I heard it got worst with time, but that S2 improved alot, so I m hoping the trend keeps going with this S3.

YES! I got so excited when I saw this! Even though the Crystal series wasn't the best, I'm still glad to know that we're getting more Sailor Moon.

Help the industry and buy Blu-rays and DVD's.

Yay! :D

Considering the 2nd season or at the very least the one that aired on last year was very good, hopefully it can stay with the consistency though honestly.

Nice. Crystal III/s2 was a huge improvement over the first season and a decent entry into the franchise, hopefully they will continue like that.

I don't care about animation. I don't know how people can tell bad from good animation. My eye did not see big difference between 1st season and 3rd season.

Well, I'm not expert either, it's just first season had a lot of ugly CGI which I personally hate :v Plus, the character design in 3rd season way cuter imo.

Because of shit like these:



I dropped the first season but i heard the sequel is much better. I will watch it before this one will come out.

I'm pretty sure they're gonna keep adapting it with the same quality as the 3rd season. not that the 3rd season's animation was anything spectacular but at least it was consistent with no real cringeworthy flaws.

Well this isn't a surprise to me considering the way the previous season left off. I wonder if it will be a 1 or 2-cour though. Guess we'll have to see.

It looks fine to me. I usually do not notice those stuff when I watch anime, and has almost no impact on my enjoyment.

Bad quality animation is Toei's signature at this point. You'll catch on eventually, but at least you're able to look past bad animation and enjoy something for what it is.

Death Busters was an improvement, but there still was wonky art and the pacing was still bad--not as bad as with the first Crystal, but it was still a chore to trek through every week. Toei has a history of bad pacing, so that's to be expected. I purposefully went into Crystal blind without checking out the original series, and honestly, I just haven't been impressed with it at all. This new season probably isn't going to change that even if it ended up having the best animation in the world.

But at least it's still not a biweekly stream.
...right?

To be fair, the BDs improved most of the visual issues. They could fix the barebones manga plot though.

As for the news, it was obvious from start that they're doing the entire thing, makes no sense just adapting first three arcs.

Well seeing as though Sailor Moon is my favorite anime of all time, I'm always up for a new season, no matter how crappy the animation.
True fans will like something regardless of whether other people hate on it or not.
As long as you like something, that's all that should truly matter. Haters be damned.

Keeping the TV format or gong back to the Internet?

PS: as ugly as it was, at least the first Crystal series tried to fulfill the early promise of designs closer to the paper.

edit: even CAPCOM will promote it through one of its downloadable quests for the Monster Hunter X extended version (XX):

I really should rewatch Sailor Moon sometimes because I don't remember much from my childhood and then start the remakes, good thing heard Crystal S2 was an improvement over awful S1.

I really liked how they handled Season 3... hope they don't drop the ball...

Ahhhhhhh YEAH. We're getting a new season of Sailor Moon Crystal. This is fantastic news especially after how much better Season 3 was than the first parts. I'm legitimately pumped for this adaptation.

Yes, finally! I've been waiting for this for a while now. Season three was definitely a step up from the last two arcs, so I hope season four stays the same and keeps the great animation and style.
