Well, that was a thing.
While I am so totes happy to have new Sailor Moon, and the chance to rebuy (yes, rebuy. I am slightly insane.) more old Sailor Moon, there's something.....off about the new series.
I think I am just the tiniest bit put off with the new look of the characters in the show. Which is stupid, since I never bitched about the manga look. But there's just something about Usagi and Usagi's mother looking the exact same age......bugs something in my feeble pea brain. And there was a moment with both Motoki and Jaedite that had them just over the limit of being bishonen to be handsome into being bishonen to be the uke. Not what I was looking for in those characters/this series. Mamoru stayed in reasonable limits though. And they changed his nickname for Usagi from bun-head to bump-head. People. Either keep it in, or take it away, but don't turn it to crap.
Loved the music, loved the story. (Though that last is kind of a given, isn't it?) Loved the extra bit of foreshadowing for the Moon Princess and her new(er) look. But then the transformation sequence where Usagi just flails her (extra long manga style) noodly limbs to adorn them in uniform, rather than the....dance like? (choreographed? Syncronized swimming? What's the word I need here?) moves of the original is a little sad. Especially since we'll get to see the transformation over and over and over.....
Ah well. I should not bitch one bit. We get more Sailor Moon, and it's good. Just what we wanted.
(Though really, if they had to change the look - I wish they went with the Arina Tanemura style of drawing the Sailor Scouts. Her fan art made them just so adorable! I guess I want the magical girls cute and tiny, the parents looking like parents and the men handsome but still male looking. LOL.)
