Sailor Moon Crystal Gets 3rd Season


The final episode of the second Sailor Moon Crystal anime season aired on Monday, and the anime's website announced that production on a third season for the Death Busters arc has been green-lit. The new season will assemble all 10 Senshi — specifically, the popular outer Senshi such as Sailor Uranus, Sailor Neptune, and Sailor Saturn will join Sailor Moon, Sailor Chibi Moon, and the others. The new season will adapt the arc from the fifth and sixth volumes of the complete edition of Naoko Takeuchi's original Sailor Moon manga.

#‎SailorMoonCrystal‬ is getting a new theme song. Momoiro Clover Z are officially DONE with the project. New opening will be sung by Etsuko Yakushimaru, who sang "Otome No Policy" on the 20th Anniversary Tribute Album. The new song is titled "In Love With The New Moon"

The new ending theme is a duet between Haruka and Michiru's new actresses. The new ending theme is called "Eternal Eternity"

Both songs will be released on CD and iTunes April 27th.

Sailor Moon's Rainbow Moon Heart Ache attack is a re-trace of her original attack from Sailor Moon S!! Jupiter's Sparkling Wide Pressure is also a Sailor Moon R re-trace, as Toei has chosen to pull in elements from the original series due to fan demand.

The new, younger looking design of the girls comes from Pretty Cure designer Akira Takahashi. You will see comparisons between Crystal and the latest Pretty Cure TV show and movie, as both were done around the same time by the same Toei staff.

Crystal hits Tokyo TV MX on April 4th at 11pm Japan time, due to darker, more adult content.

All NEW transformations have been animated for all of the Sailor Guardians/Senshi, along with NEW attack animations.

CGI is being scaled back due to fan complaint.

The cast is as follows:
Tsukino Usagi / Sailor Moon Auditor: Kotono Mitsuishi
Ami Mizuno / Sailor Mercury Auditor: Hisako Kanemoto
Sailor Mars / Sailor Mars Auditor: Rina Sato
Sailor Jupiter / Sailor Jupiter Auditor: Ami Koshimizu
Sailor Venus / Sailor Venus Auditor: Shizuka Ito
Chibiusa / Sailor Chibi Moon Auditors : Fukuen Misato
Sailor Pluto / Sailor Pluto Auditor: Ai Maeda
Sailor Uranus / Sailor Uranus Auditor: Junko Minagawa
Sailor Neptune / Sailor Neptune Auditor: Sayaka Ohara
Sailor Saturn / Sailor Saturn Auditor: Yukiyo Fujii
Tuxedo Kamen / Tuxedo mask Officer: Kenji Nojima
Luna: Ryo Hirohashi
Artemis: Yohei Obayashi
Diana: Shoko Nakagawa
kaolinite: Yono Hikari
DoMegumu Professor: Takuya Kirimoto
Pharaoh 90: Takaya Hashi
<Witches 5>
Mimetto: Yuki Nagahisa   
Yujiaru: Takahashi Chiaki
Biriyui: Hon'izumi Rina
tellurium: firmament Naomi
Shipurin: Umeka Shōji

I can't wait to see the new season. I wish they didn't do so much retrace and came up with a more unique way of presenting the attacks/transformations or their own interpretation of how the attack would look. I don't want to see what I can already see from the original 90's anime. Also I have a feeling them retracing it means a lot of reused stock footage which is one of the worse parts of the original and even Crystal. However in Crystal the attacks I don't think were usually stock footage since they usually never repeated how they animated the attacks if I remember correctly. It kind of changed from episode to episode so consistency would be great but that also means the dreaded stock footage usage. I hated the CGI. To me it should never have been used and instead of scaling it back, they should take it out completely. It was badly done and the transformations took too much time.

I liked the character designs of the first 2 seasons, just not the quality of animation. There is only one instance where the animation was actually good and it was the stock animation of each Sailor Soldier's "I will punish you" scene. The previous designs looked closer to the style of the manga. However, I like the possibility of emotions and personalities that were not used in animation of the first two seasons. I am happy for Pretty Cure fans who are also fans of Sailor Moon to see the same style. I am not a fan of Pretty Cure or the way they draw the nose/mouths/etc. so I personally do not like the new character designs. Let's hope the story and character development is better in this season.

Seasons 1 and 2 of Crystal disappointed me, but I never preferred the manga version of the story, anyway.

I at least hope they make fewer animation errors in this season.
