The animation style for Sailor Moon Crystal is just fucking awful. The old-school manga style did not translate well into animation and I really wish they had gone with a more beautiful, modern style. Even in the manga, Usagi had more exaggerated expressions than what we’re seeing in the new reboot. And now they make her seem like her face is not capable of more than two boring expressions. They had the chance to make it amazing and just missed the mark by miles. Such a disappointment.
I don’t know if I can continue watching anymore episodes. I cringe every time I see screen caps from it. The art that is shown for the commercial breaks is stunning, but that’s it. Even the transformation sequence is just ridiculous; it looks 3D and doesn’t match the rest of the show. What the hell.
