    Sailor Moon Crystal was amazing!
    I loved the dub as a child and then later fell in love with the original japanese version as a teen and Sailor Moon Crystal did not disappoint! I loved every minute of it! The animation was very visually appealing and when it started I was hit with a wave of nostalgia.

    Really Wanted To Like It
    I really genuinely wanted to like this. I grew up on the original Sailor Moon, and even the first several episodes of Crystal were music to my anime ears. (I not anti-new-version anything, I love new material and remakes.) However, as the episodes went on, things began to drag terribly. Moments were incredibly drawn out when not needed, and lots of material that should have been given notice ...

    Just like the Manga!
    Love the fact that it is following the manga, it seems a bit more serious though compared to the old Sailor Moon series which was full of comedy however, this is only the first episode so I can't really judge it. Sailor Moon has always been one of the big favourites, and this new series has had so much hype. The only criticism i have is her transformation, I know that the original manga, Naoko ...

    You can't please everyone, But it more than pleased me!
    Everyone is a critic. When the original anime debuted, people complained that the series wasn't true to the Manga in both animation and story line. That it was dragged out way too long and the dubs were annoying. The original animated series was my CHILDHOOD. And I adored it because as a child, I didn't care about the differences, I just loved this ditsy, meatball headed, sailor scout moon ...

    Missing the forest for the trees
    No show should be like this, least of all one as beloved and guaranteed successful as Sailor Moon.

    The show is a mess, despite its claims of being closer to the manga in both art and storyline. Unfortunately, the artwork barely manages to capture the quality of the manga's artwork nor does it even try to capture its more comedic renderings, leaving the character designs and animations rigid ...

    Toei, you are bad and you should feel bad.
    ETA 4/4: This review was written long before Season 3 was even announced. Season 3 is, so far, an improvement in almost every department. Updates to come.

    Toei used Sailor Moon's 20th anniversary as an excuse to make a shoddy, lifeless cash-in and it's the saddest thing I've ever seen. I can't believe I waited two years for this trainwreck. I am secondhand embarrassed for ...

    Amazing, Nearly Identical To The Manga
    This is NOT A REMAKE of the '90 series!, this is the series based on the manga and it has some notorious differences, this serie can never replace the old Sailor Moon anime and has not intention to do it either, they're two different series so if you hated the '90 series or if you loved it (or if you didn't watch it) you SHOULD give this a try.

    A disappointing adaptation.
    Let's be clear; I was super excited about this adaptation, and I had no qualms with the first couple of episodes. And then I went back and watched them again and saw how the characters were sometimes off model and the animation wasn't superb, but I shrugged it off because hey, I was really excited to see this show follow the manga's storyline. And then the changes started, which, is kind of ...

    It is complicated!!!
    It is complicated about how I feel about this show. The old Sailor Moon anime was filled with filler but it had one thing this show doesn't - heart.

    I am a dude, but yeah I used to secretly watch the original Sailor Moon anime. My all time favorite moment was when Nephlite thought that Molly was Sailor Moon because she was generating a strong power directed at him. Having this much power she ...

    Let's be super real here.
    I've been doing this anime thing a long time, and I've seen great works of art that grip the soul, and soul crushingly terrible atrocities that aren't worth the data they push through the internet.

    Sailor Moon is watchable...sort of.

    It follows the original source material well enough, I guess, but I think that's part of my first series of problems with it and strap in kids, because I have a ...
