I am so excited to see this! The transformation scene wasn't that great, but everything else was amazing! Also, everyone looks so gorgeous. But...now I have to wait two weeks....

It was a fun little flashback to the past, and the style matched the manga's appearance quite well. However the new theme music is pretty low class compared to the past openings.

Past openings, they were all the same except for Stars... Anyway, nice to see Tuxedo mask man up and stop throwing Roses.

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.



Well, Act 1 moved at the exact same pace as manga act 1, The Dark Kingdom and Black Moon arcs are 13 episodes each.

Also, Crunchyroll on PS3 and iPhone are streaming the episode, but the quality is actually atrocious.It looks like a bad VHS rip.

Well Ami does show up in episode 2 like the manga. I imagine they would try to keep it as close to the manga as possible, but if they decide only to do 26 episodes, IDK if I'd be ok with them finishing with the Black Moon arc.

I didn't watch the first show. I do remember have seen at least one episode but just in flashes, which is the same as nothing.
Therefore, I can't compare Crystal with its predecessor. However, I have been reading the manga since last year. I take my time, I still haven't finished it. Right now I'm up to volume 8 so I felt confident to start watching Crystal without being afraid of spoilers. Granted, when the video started and the Toei intro appeared I felt my guts shrink. I guess I forgot Toei were the holders of the animation rights for the original Sailor Moon so I was took off guard. To my delight, Toei got it right this time. At least judging Crystal from the first episode, it seems the series was handled with love and care and high quality. I loved every aspect of it and does justice to the manga. Even to the choice of Usagi's voice matches perfectly to the character's annoying childish personality from the manga.

Ep 1

So much nostalgia.

The CG transformation scene stuck out like a sore thumb, bleh.

And I know its probably been said a million times over how many years the series was created but the artwork really does not make them look like middle school students lol

Other than that it was nice I guess. Much shoujo.

And CR really needs to fix that whole situation with ios and android where you have to wait a couple of hours to watch an episode that was just uploaded. I wanted to watch on my ipad. Nope. Had to go get my laptop

And if they're from space, are they aliens? I forgot the whole mythos behind this show.

Yeah was hoping for a modern redo of "Moonlight Densetsu" instead of what we got.

Moonlight Densetsu is still the best, but the new opening is still a lot better then the NA dub opening from the DIC version.

i'm surprised how many people stayed up/woke up early to see this. it isn't going anywhere lol.

unfortunately i don't have the nostalgia as many, DBZ was the only anime i saw as a kid. Still enjoyable to watch however.

I'm not liking Usagi's voice too much yet


Whaaaaaat? That's my favorite part!

Usagi clearly called here mom a baka in the opening scene. Translators are taking liberties I noticed in several places.

But whatever, I already love this show. I love her Danger-Buns, her ultra-crybaby attack, her ridiculous voice. Everything!

Except that ugly CG transformation sequence, but that's gonna be a thing I guess.

Oh come now, the animation varied...and I guess the music thing is what gets me a little more riled. When you have a classic that everyone recognizes, don't mess with it too much. Plus the hypocrisy of the new theme seemed pretty evident after Tuxedo Kamen was the one that told her to fight in that very episode.

Knock yourselves out watching the classic openings. http://youtu.be/phOt1YZuUYw

And I am curious as to how they're going to handle the final bit of the arc, are we going to get the mass slaughter or will they wimp out on us?

I've seen all 200 of the original. Moonlight Densetsu was used for the OP song for four seasons. I don't mind the new stuff this is a reboot afterall. I like that it follows the manga. And even if the animation varied in the old openings this is the 1st episode and the 1st opening that we know of. So it's all new animation anyway... I like both versions. I will always like the 90's version, but I'm not going to judge a reboot from the original. Not to mention this isn't a "remake" of the 90's series.
