(FULL VIEW, PUHLEAZE! :3)
Don't get me wrong: I'm a hardcore Sailor Moon fan and I loved the original anime.
But I'm kind of annoyed by the amount of people complaining on the Internet about how SMC is "a failure" because of the art style and all of the mistakes and stuff.
Want me to go back and remind you about the occasional (or not-so occasional) poorly-drawn Sailor Moon episodes? Because there are tons of them! The screenshots are from 3 episodes from Sailor Moon R.
Seriously, the more I see these pics about the supposed bad art style of SMC, the more I come to realize that the only problem is the lot of butthurt fans of the original anime who will automatically hate the remake on the grounds that it's just *not* the original anime, using the animation issues to justify their hate.
All animes have animation issues. Take Shoujo Kakumei Utena, for example: you'll see some poorly-drawn episodes too, and yet it's still a masterpiece!
So far, I've enjoyed Sailor Moon Crystal, as I was looking forward to see some darker elements of the manga that just didn't make it into the original anime. And honestly I hope they continue all the way to the Dream and Stars arcs! Can't wait to see the awesome fight against Nehellenia and the Silver Millenium backstory, not to mention the entire Stars arc and Sailor Cosmos!!!
I agree that there are art issues in SMC, but they're compensated by the awesome backgrounds and the transformations!!! And as for the lack of comical situations, well, they've decided to take a more serious approach, so what?
Still, I understand that some things will not be replaced. For example, I know I'll find it incredibly weird if Haruka isn't voiced by Megumi Ogata, but oh well. The original anime was back then. Sailor Moon Crystal is right now, so let's just support the show, dammit!
*DISCLAIMER*: I don't own Sailor Moon or Sailor Moon Crystal, I just took a couple of screenshots or three (or 9!).
