It's a pretty rare anime where young teens actually look their age. I mean, look at Eva, Bleach, Pokémon, and pretty much everything else out there.

The eye design and distance between the eyes just comes off as looking....downright weird to me. It just looks kind of goofy, like eyes that large need more space between them.

Having never watched a single second of the original Sailor Moon, I'm looking forward to dipping my toes into this series.

I am shocked that no one has keyed in on the important problem with this promo. USAGI HAS NO TOAST IN HER MOUTH.

This blasphemy must not stand. BOYCOTT CRYSTAL!

Well, Mitsuishi has still got it despite over twenty years having passed.

Really? What standards are you judging this by? Personally, they look like they're in their 20s.

Overall, I like how it was in motion. Closer to the manga and I like how fluid the hair was. Eyes seem to look alright to me in motion. Looking good so far.

Can't believe its actually happening now...

Not bad at all, the character designs are a lot better than I thought. Everything feels right so far.

The art bothers me. The art really bothers me. Their eyes look possessed by Kyubey. There is no life in them, they are utterly static and inhuman. The gestures are overly exaggerated. The backgrounds look flat. The colors palette looks unnatural. I kept holding hope that it would look better animated, but it doesn’t, not really.

On the bright side, voice acting is very good. The fact that they aren’t singing Moonlight Densetsu is also good.

This is is… dunno. I do look forward to it, but I am preparing myself to be disappointed.
Came here to say this.

Upon watching it a second time I like it much better the initial shock is over. Something about Usagi's hair bugs me and Luna's eyes freak me the fudge out but I am still adjusting.

As someone who grew up watching the original Sailor Moon anime, I really can't wait to see this version since this new version of the anime is based more deeply on how it was in the manga. Anime smile
