I hope they get Romi Park for Sailor Uranus, she is the perfect fit tbh, if not then Akeno Watanabe.

The new Sailor Moon key art has kind of leaked. It is low quality and black and white, but from what I can tell the design is quite different from the first season of Crystal.


This looks great!! Quite an improvement.

....but yeah, I'll wait for the dub....because Kotono's voice hurts my ears. XD Dubbed Usagi is WAY more easy to listen to; she's quite cute.

Since i just finished black Moon arc on Crystal yrsterdzy i think It translates my bitterness though the art was better than the horrendous dark kingdom arc. Basically as a ONA i understand the anime was not a priority (dbz, one piece, precure) i don't care i CAN enjoy the new merch.

But since there is a new production the light is back. I think they look better on the visual key. More moe-ish, way cuter.

Now new vocal cast !!!!? Who ??? Katsuki masako, Ogata megumi, Minaguchi yuko ?? ­čĄö­čÖâ #dream

I've heard that they've changed the character designer, and that's what I hoped for. Girls seem a little bit more moe and chubby than before, in Crystal they were too damn skinny and anorectic :(

Now they at least look attractive :3

Considering the disappointment I was faced with with Crystal, I'm not going to get too excited but I might check this out.

This is great news.

Hope it's not like Crystal though , i mean i hope it has a different vibe to it.

Are the voice actresses changing again? i got sooo pissed when Emi Shinohara was replaced as Sailor Jupiter ...

>_< can't wait.

Oooh, looks very nice. This is definitely a big change from the first season. I'll probably check out the first few episodes, given they don't air bi-weekly.

oh my god shut the fuck up wont you?
you forgot?? "New Sailor Moon anime commemorating the 20th anniversary of Sailor Moon."
"COMMEMORATING" "ONA" "not a remake" and yet....sigh
but you rate its was a remake, they clearly said "THIS IS NOT A REMAKE." you are blind or you pretend to be.

As a sm fan i'm happy, since i/we waited YEARS for something, now u, as an annoying otaku who lives to watch anime and to rate it...good luck...with that life.....ah...

////

Anyways. SOOOO EXCITED!!! NICE Q_Q ONE OF MY FAV ARCS, can't believe they are also making a new version of this YAY. The design looks different, it resembles me of something...somehow... looks good!!!
BLAAAAAAAAAAAAAHJKǺÇLKFJ I CANT WAIT!!!
!!!LOOK AT OUTER SENSHI. OMG. ;;

Not excited for a second season, but I do think this poster looks nice. I didn't like the designs of season 1, so this is an improvement.

So any chance this won't air bi-weekly? Yeah, I'd be surprised too.

Looking forward to it!

Still need to finish the first season.

Jan 8, 2016 3:15 PM by ReaperCreeper

Toei doesn't treat Sailor Moon very well anyway, so not having any high expectations for this. As long as it's no longer biweekly, I'll probably watch this as it airs because marathoning didn't really work in the first season's favor for me.

Oh my god i can't wait first seasons were amazing. And im happy that there will be the outer senshi! Hope that there will be an arc with the Dead Moon Circus ( Amazon Trio and Quartet ) and the Sailor Stars arc. ^ ^

Looking forward to watching this. Hopefully, the animation doesn't look like shit during its TV broadcast.
