okay, so for all you mahou shoujo fans... or anyone who has just seen them... what are your favorite transformation sequences? Like the ones you don't get sick of seeing every single episode because they're just so cool
Third would be Nanoha's seen from the outside transformation as she falls from a building at the beginning of Nanoha As. I liked how the attack bounced off her, that answered the eternal "why does no one attack them while they spin around in nudie intermediate stages?"
and honestly i'm still somewhat of a fan of the saillor moon transformations. mars and jupiter were my favs.
oh and i'm suprised no one has mention the PPG Z transformations. the show might be awful but i fell in love with the transformation sequences the first time i saw them. bubbles is the best though http://youtube.com/watch?v=2Ozj_cdIq5U
I don't like a lot of magical girl series, so I'll just say Nanoha's transformation in the first season. I liked it when she kissed Raging Heart. It's a little ecchi, but I guess a lot of anime are ecchi nowadays.
Awesome thread. It's about time someone tackled the big topics in the anime fandom!
I never get tired of seeing magical girl transformation sequences. Moetan is certainly high up there for the ecchi factor, and so is Nanoha but with slightly more class. But there are so many great ones it's too difficult to decide!
If only CCS had had transformation sequences; the fact hat it featured Sakura would make it instantly win.
The winner for me has to be the Powerpuff Girls Z transformation; the one with all three of the girls. It's just so cool, with the upbeat music and the dance-like moves. Actually it's kind of hypnotic, and hard to stop watching.
Kaitou Jeanne's transformation is not bad.
Although I guess Princess Comet's transformation is cute.
Mermaid Melody's transformation is very nice.
Although, if Sakura had a transformation she'd win.
I guess I like the transformations!!!
P.S. Someone made an AMV of various transformations from
animes I used:
SAILOR MOON(that was obvious from me :P)
Cutey Honey Flash
demashita powerpuff girls Z
Tokyo Mew Mew
Nurse Angel Ririka
Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha
The UG transformations are suprisingly well done considering the nature of the series.
I can't really decide a favorite one off the bat though, I'm currently quite enjoying the transformations in Shugo Chara, can't wait till they show the last of Amus transformations, thinking back I think I liked the transformations in Okusama wa Mahou Shoujo quite a lot. The ones in Tokyo Mew Mew were quite decent too, especially Lettuce. I just hated that they started cutting them short, especially the side character ones.
Ah well, my favorites tend to change depending on my mood.
Oh, I forgot to give a honorary mention to Kenshiro from Hokuto no Ken, I'm sure he's a magical girl too, his shirt ripping is a clear transformation scene, there is no other explanation why the shirt returns back on him everytime a while after it rips.
