Sailor Moon Crystal 01

July 6th, 2014 by Author

Impact of Sailor Moon Crystal awoke The Pink Sylphide after more than a year of hiatus and Chris’ post made to give it a try. It seems like a straight-up reboot, and reboot of Kanon was awesome, so…

But when I saw the puss-in-boots logo, I felt dread. The no-good has-been studio is handling the reboot. There was a very good reason why Kyoto Animation led the 2006 Kanon. So, I am not optimistic. Still, if GAINAX can bury the ghost of GAINAX ending, Toei could be given the last chance.

It is too early to tell if they succeed against their baggage, but at least nothing in the ep.1 was actively offensive, broken, or nasty. It was pure set-up. Usagi is no God’s gift to mankind, but worse teenage girl protagonists existed (why, hello, Tomoko Kuroki). Since I do not remember much about Sailor Moon, I’m looking forward at meeting the cast.

No, I have no idea why Tuxedo Mask wears a tux in his civilian guise in Crystal. On the surface of it, it’s idiotic, but we’ll see.
