In the name of the moon

I just finished watching episode one of the new Sailor Moon Crystal, and it was pretty fun!  The new animation looks closer to a movie than a TV series, and the opening and ending songs are fantastic.  The triangle face still bugs me a little, and the backup vocals during transformations makes them kind of hilarious.

I wouldn’t say this is a replacement for the old series.  It’s just different.  I loved the old series, and enjoyed re-watching it recently, when it was re-released on Neon Alley.  This one looks like it will follow the manga, instead of wandering off into space on a regular basis.  I hope they can keep up the same level of attention to detail and story in future episodes.

Here is a link to the first episode of Sailor Moon Crystal on Crunchyroll.

In the name of the moon, let’s give it a chance!
