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~!


Personally I like the change in Umino's look.XD

I agree. Mamoru's voice was amazing. BTW, did anyone else notice the watch he was carrying as he left near the end of the episode. I'm glad they kept that in the design from the manga.

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)


Really? I didn't know that, thanks for that piece of info. I didn't catch any errors while watching, well time to watch it again!

Secret: when I was a kid I totally fell for Sailor Mercury and from that moment on, I pictured my perfect woman with short hair like her.
Kind of dumb but I still love short haired girls with blue hair :P

Ok, bye.

If they keep her like this throughout the beginning I will be so happy. I got kind of annoyed with her in the beginning of the original.

Even more relatable. The new one lacks something a bit more human that the original had but she is still very good though!!

I'm still screaming and flailing about it~ Aaaah it was sooo good! It had this whimsical dreamy affect that was just so very shoujo and so very like the manga and it was amazing! I noticed a few subbing errors but honestly, I was too starry-eyed at the wonderful animation to care. I'm so happy I stayed up all night to see it, totally worth it! I can't wait for the next episode. ♥♥

I never saw the subbed version of the original series so I'm watching that on Hulu in between Crystal here. It is fun to see the changes and difference between the two, though I personally prefer the warmth of the older hand drawn animation. It is a great time to be an anime fan, as we have so many legal and affordable options to watch, and the episodes come quickly after they air in Japan to boot!

This might be an unpopular opinion but that transformation scene was f*cking horrible. They completely ruined one of the most iconic aspects of this show for me. And we're going to be forced to see that every episode. My inner child/fan girl weeps.

Going to put my thoughts in a pink box.



What I will say outside the box is that this is not going Madoka. This is essentially the original magical girl epic, and it has plenty of its own darkness in it. ... Now, I may be one of the very few who dislike the Sailor Moon manga, but there is still a lot to enjoy here, and I eagerly look forward to more.

BTW, Mercury will always be the best Sailor Senshi.

Bad CGI transformation scene... really is unfortunate when otherwise it seems they are trying very hard to go back to the feel of the original and farther back to the manga. With years of delays and 2 weeks between episodes you'd think they could take the time to do a proper transformation scene for what has been copied so many times since but now... simply appears to have been surpassed.

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.


I hope not. I'd prefer it if the Dark Kingdom arc was spread over the 26 episodes.

I agree 100%, I loathe CGI used with 2D animation. It just looks so bad mixed together most of the time. For such an iconic series, it is a bit disappointing they went the CGI route with the transformation scene, especially when Kill la Kill recently had really slick transformation scenes that looked less obnoxious with the 3D CGI aspect, but I digress. Otherwise though, it is very good animation quality, though my preference is always cel based animation.

Also, it is pretty cool the VA for Usagi is the same after all these years.
