  • It certainly inspires nostalgia
    Sailor Moon Crystal is not the sailor moon I grew up with. She's shinier, taller, thinner, and her romance arc is creepier from my now adult perspective. That said, I would watch it all again! I love how faithful they were to the manga, and how much more depth of character each sailor scout got. Adult me, adolescent me, and child me give 6 thumbs up~!

  • Just watch it, it's still awesome.
    I first watched Sailor Moon in the 90's when I was a kid and it was great. It forever remained close to my heart because of it's meaning to the genre. Now in regards to Sailor Moon Crystal, well it's as if it grew up along with me, it feels more grown up. Keep it up.

  • You're better off reading the manga
    This will be a review of the first two arcs which I saw and was extremely disappointed by. In the first arc, all of the Shitennou were supposed to have been killed by the inner senshi right after their introduction but they were spared in this adaptation because of the Senshi x Shitennou pairings that Toei decided to adapt from one of Naoko's artwork. This would have been fine if the Shitennou ...

    Weak characterization, weak plot and lazy animation
    These three things give rise to probably one of the biggest disappointments I have ever seen animated.

    The characters all cry a lot and are generally useless. Usagi does something that she specifically does not do in the manga because it was supposed to demonstrate her character growth. This remake fails to capture the spirit of its original. I am not usually observant when it comes to ...

    Best classic remake I've seen so far
    If you watched Sailor Moon back in the 1990s then you should really watch Sailor Moon Crystal. They kept all the important parts. No filler episodes, more action, and way more visually pleasing. I don't have any complaints. Great job. I hope they continue to remake the next series.

  • Feeling my childhood
    I'm feeling hardcore nostalgia feels as I watch this and it's super amazing! I'm pretty much checking every 2 days to see when the next episode comes out! The artwork is awesome and pretty much everything else is also awesome too. I really like how this sailor moon is more closer to the manga then the other anime was, making me want to re-read the manga as the anime goes on.

  • The best rendition of Sailor Moon!
    I started watching Sailor Moon basically when I was four, so I grew up with these characters, cheering Usagi on, doing all the battle cries, dreamed of having long blond hair like hers, and had a huge crush on the hunk in the mask and cape. I think the romance really sold everyone on this series during the 90s. Nothing more classic than Usagi and Mamoru. However, let me tell you how much I wish ...

    Give it 3-5 episodes and you will NEVER STOP
    I bet that all of those people who rated poorly in August would change their reviews now.. IT IS AN AMAZING ANIME! It is a bit different from the original -and there can be maybe somewhat of an adjustment period for some- but soon you will appreciation that the new adaptation is beautiful in, perhaps, a more complex way. I am a huge old school sailor moon fan and I feel that the new sailor moon ...

When i read the manga and i was aware of the difference between the 90's and the manga i was kinda disappointment on the original series because is they had follow the plot more strictly it will have being better but our dear original series was still as good besides its downs. But its the time to concentrate more on the plot than ...

    missing something magical
    I recently finished watching all 200 subtitled episodes + 3 movies of the original with my daughters. We enjoyed it greatly, and it helped get them hooked on Anime. We were pretty excited when the new one started, but I have to say that after 3 episodes I'm a little disappointed. This series seems to be missing the magical spark of the original.

    Maybe I don't like the faster pace of ...
