    It's kinda fascinating. They managed to keep the nostalgic feel but also made it completely new and fresh. It is not als childish as it used to be.

    The only thing I didn't care for much was the stupid cgi transformation. I still enjoyed it though, so much nostalgia.

    Just watched it, so glad the art was more to the manga, very beautiful. just CGI transformation like you said was a bit iffy.

    Remember growing up with Sailor Moon, me and my sister would always watch it! <3

    Watched this earlier and other than the nostalgia factor, I hated the quality of the new art. Can't quite put my finger on why though :S And I don't even mean the CGI transformation. It just didn't look right to me.

    It actually never was 'childish', the english dub was just made in a very restrictive time, "Cartoons are for the kiddies don't ya know!"

    I especially loved how they made Uranus and Jupiter, cousins...

    Oh, and Zoicite a female... Forgot that shit for a second.

    i dont think sailor moon will take ages. toonami said the fan response to the announcement of the reboot was one of the strongest of any show for toonami.

    popular show like sailor moon will get dubbed quick so to not lose any profits from impatient people

    But they would still have to wait when they can just watch it now. People want new things ASAP these days. Plus there are people that just prefer the original Japanese to the (eventual) dub.

    I find this to be awesome if it means a new Sailor Moon beat-em-up, RPG and tournament fighter game gets made like the original series had.

    I can't watch it. They are all super skinny and look way too pretty, like super pretty. "Oh look I just got out of bed and I don't need lipstick because my lips are always balmed up"

    It's anime, and it's Sailor Moon of all things; what the hell did you expect?

    The art felt more like the classic Manga art then I remember it. Not bad. The transformation was great. Such memories with this one..

    Well for a lot of Americans, Sailor Moon was one of the first Anime they ever saw, so the nostalgia trip is huge. Its one of those Anime that holds a special place at the center of all anime's popularity in the US, like DBZ and RoboTech.
    Edit: I would go nuts for a hot min if they translated it with the classic versions Sailor scouts people.

    Why would you ever watch dubs?

    I really can't watch dub anime, it just feels emotionless to me

    The manga and previous anime didn't focus on such pampers. Even the plump lady from the orginal first episode and manga is gone. It's just sad

    At least they did not increas their breast size. The classic anime was just oversexualized. They seemed skinny when I saw the first traier, but it didn't really come out as much. After all it is Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon.





    Not too much difference.
