yes the dream arc i was waiting for it

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.

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.

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

So excited!!! I adore both the old and new Sailor Moon anime and I'm always happy for more!

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.

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):

Well I'm always down for more Sailor Moon.

More Sailor Moon is always a good thing. :)

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.

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.


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.

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.

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?

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.

because the 1st season was riddled with stuff like this:


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.
