The series will stream on Nico Nico, which is probably as popular in Japan as YouTube is in the US.

In fact, Nico Nico's stream is supposed to be worldwide (for those who are not available to view on CR).

This is the first time I've heard about Nico Nico, but anyways, thanks for the info! I'm guessing that most companies throw their ONAs on Nico Nico then, eh?

They did, IMO.

I never did like the way Takeuchi did the eyes for her characters.

They do. It is effectively the go to place for online streaming inside Japan from what I understand.

They launched a US version of the service, complete with Anime simulcasts back in summer 2011, but it folded within about a year.

I liked the eyes a lot. It was typical 90's Shoujo style, and I thought it was pretty. Sure, it wasn't CLAMP, but when drawn well, the art was beautiful.

On the other hand, so far the animation for the new series (minus the AWFUL CGI transformation) looks very beautiful to me. I'll have to see if it upholds that come this Saturday!

I watched the video and I just exploded into fangirl feels. I'm not a big fan of the CGI transformation, but at the same time at least it's not as out of place as it looks in some other anime. I am so ready for this.

Also, Mamoru looks good in glasses.

Not a fan of the CGI transformation either. I'm disappointed because the CG in the latest Precure series (Happiness Charge) is a lot better and much less uncanny looking.

On the other hand, I loved everything else I've seen so far. Bring it on!

Episode 1


Finally, it's here!

And wow that was great. I'm not liking Usagi's voice too much yet though but overall was done alright in terms of execution. The transformation scene did bother me somewhat...

Overall good episode though. Can't wait to see more! Oh and Tuexdo Mask is awesome.

I like the new Sailor Moon I've been watching the old series on a back alley of the internet
and am currently just way to excited about the improvement of quality to be bothered by anything at all
Had to find my way around Nico Nico but so far so good

I had to watch it on Nico because I'm traveling in Italy... Streaming quality wasn't very good xD

Anyway, the episode was really good! I felt shivers down my spine the whole way through! And god, Mamoru's voice is so manly!



Also, Umino-kun has changed quite a bit~!

Had to watch on Hulu Plus...Crunchy won't play the episode on my PS3 yet, sadly.

That being said, since this is a direct adaptation of the manga, the Black Moon arc is definitely included in the 26 episodes. The Dark Kingdom should be over by episode 13.

Episode 1


My face after I realized it's a two week wait for the next episode.



I really enjoyed it, it's going to take some getting used to the CG transformation though.

I loved that CR actually subbed the opening and ending songs.

That's because Toei provided the subs (hence, there is a good amount of grammatical errors)
