Just for fun: Over 250 contributions to this project to animate a piece of a Sailor Moon episode in their own style.

Re: Sailor Moon Crystal

Oh, there were TONS of animation styles in there. Quite a visual treat, especially if you like abstract animation styles AND the distinctive Western-artists-trying-to-imitate-anime-style-and-not-quite-getting-it style.

My wife, the hugest Sailor Moon fan in the history of everything (that I know personally), was pretty disappointed with the second episode's quality and I tend to agree. We're also watching Sword Art Online II, Aldnoah Zero and a couple others, and there is a noticeable different in animation quality, frames used, etc. Style accounts for some of it, but it just LOOKS rather cheaper than many of its contemporaries. I hope they can refine it as the series goes on, but in the meantime we're both scratching our heads as to why SMC isn't animated to the level that we're used to in most other current anime we're watching.

Yeah, I know, Mark. I just went with the one I noticed and could name clearly.

I'd say the current SMC animation is trying to compete with its magical girl contemporaries, so it's animation will be less than stellar which is a pity.

It was nice to see Usagi with a laptop. A 14 year old girl in Japan who didn't know how to use a computer in 2014 would be pretty silly.

I found this interesting, Sailor Moon anime redrawn for DVD/Blu-Ray. The comparison shots seem favorable IMO.

Because it's Toei. Most of their other "anniversary" projects for their major franchises are just as bad in terms of quality such as for Saint Seiya, Precure or their live action shows. They are just cheap.
