Sailor Moon Crystal

Hey, any Sailor Moon fans here?

A new anime has been worked on for quite some time, it will finally start in July, Toei recently released the title and the first artwork, so here's the first look at the new version of Sailor Moon, Sailor Moon Crystal.



I'm happy with the character design, much closer to the manga this time, especially with the details of the costume like her brooch and choker.

They'll obviously do the Dark Kingdom arc first but there's no dounbt that they'll do the other arcs if the show is successful enough, I hope they can do the "Dream" arc, it's very good in the manga but the anime adaptation for "Sailor Moon SuperS" suffered from too much focus on Chibiusa and the removal of the outer senshi.

Generally I hope that the new anime sticks closer to the manga's plot but keeps the better characterization from the first anime, almost every villain was disposable in the manga, the anime gave them personalities and made them memorable.

I know nothing about this but my boss is a fan, when you say it's coming out in July, where? On US DVD?

Re: Sailor Moon Crystal

You know nothing about Sailor Moon Crystal or do you mean the entire Sailor Moon franchise?

Technically it's only the japanese release in july but Toei will stream it worldwide subtitled in various languages, the language list hasn't been confirmed yet but I'd be very surprised if english isn't part of the package.

Re: Sailor Moon Crystal

I'm disappointed that they never finished dubbing the original show in English.

I'll check this out.

I'm also very excited. And there's going to be an English dub?! I hope they do similar to what's being done with Space Dandy!

There are no confirmed dubs at all at the moment, it's subtitled only and it seems Toei has no foreign partners, they're doing it all on their own similar to what they did with the Dragonball Z special a few years ago, the translation etc. was all done by Toei.

The series will be streamed on Niconico, a japanese site, so don't expect to see it on crunchyroll etc., at least not right away, they may do it later.

There still aren't many details about how it's all going to work.

@Agent Richard07: You could check out english subs of the original anime, the japanese version is miles better than the english dub, especially in the beginning when DIC massacred the show with countless cuts and edits.

I used to have trouble too, it's definitely something you have to get used to.

Re: Sailor Moon Crystal

Subs are not my friend. I've tried. It's a combination of lack of time and an abundance of headaches.
I really hope Toei will let someone do an English dub. I think they could air it on Toonami.

Re: Sailor Moon Crystal

I'm sure there will be dubs at some point, I guess the reason Toei's doing it this way at the start is to cut down on piracy and to make more money themselves.

You could just watch the show raw in japanese, as much as I like Sailor Moon, the story's not that complicated, especially if you've read the manga or watched the old anime.

BTW, if you haven't read the manga, I recommend it. It has its flaws but I like it very much.

Space Dandy is a trip. I can go either way with the dub, I don't mind dubs if done well but I don't have a problem reading subtitles. I've actually gotten used to watching even English programming with them as I find it helps sometimes.

Of course, Sailor Moon had some annoying voices in both dub and sub. I think we all liked it despite the voices.
