Since I was off work this weekend I decided to finally finish Sailor Moon Crystal especially since it is finally finish airing. But let me just say I was definitely disappointed over how it turned out.
Now I was definitely a fan of the first series since it was the first anime I watch as kid so I’m not saying I didn’t like it because it’s not like the original. Trust me I definitely thought of Sailor Moon Crystal as its own separate show. The biggest problem I had with the show was the plot and the characterization.
For me I felt like Sailor Moon a Crystal’s plot was just wayyyyy too serious and way to focused on Usagi and Mamoru’s relationship.
While watching Sailor Moon Crystal there were just way to many moments were Usagi was crying or they were constantly fighting someone or trying to figure something out. There were never any moments were they were having fun. This was one moment where I honestly missed filler episodes in a show. I mean I also read the manga and Crystal is supposed to follow the manga more closely and even in the manga there were filler chapters and laughter.
Now for characterization I feel Crystal took a huge hit with that and I think it’s because of the focus on Usagi and Mamoru so much. I feel that none of the other Sailor Scouts were properly introduced with their different personalities and background. This for me caused me to know really have an attachment to them and the only characters that I felt attachment too were Usagi and Mamoru. Well at least that was the case for the Dark Kingdom arc.
When it came to the Black Moon arc there was definitely some character development which saved the show just a little bit for me.
That being said the whole show wasn’t completely bad. I definitely enjoyed the Black Moon arc the most. There was a lot more action which was great to see and great character development beyond Usagi and Mamoru. Also the opening for Crystal was just amazing and I couldn’t help watching it every time I watched an episode.
Overall though even with the better arc when it came to the Black Moon it still couldn’t save the show for me. I ended up giving this show a 5/10. It wasn’t completely bad but I definitely didn’t enjoy it like I thought I would. Hopefully the next season is better if they have realized the mistakes that was made with this season.
So comment down below on what you thought of Sailor Moon Crystal if you watched it and also what you thought of this review.
I can’t believe that we are already on episode 21 of Sailor Moon Crystal and this weeks episode gave us quite a bit of back story on both the Black Moon Kingdom and on Chibi-Usa.
The episode starts off with the kidnapping of Usagi by Prince Demande and her waking up in their hideout.
There Prince Demande explains how he and his allies discovered Nemesis and why they are using the power of the Black Crystal. The he kisses Usagi which was just so wrong.
Back with our heroes they are trying to figure out how best to rescue Usagi and Chibi-Usa’s past is revealed. She can’t use the Legendary Silver Crystal and she is 900 years old! What!!!! But Chibi-Usa also explains why she took to the Crystal and it was because she was being bullied. She also believes that all of this is her fault because she took the Crystal.
Also in this episode we catch a small glimpse of the rest of the kidnapped Sailor Scouts. Which I absolutely loved and I hope they are back for more in the next episode. Also since the episode ended with Chibi-Usa being influenced by Wiseman I can sense that Black Lady is going to be making an appearance soon.
I give this weeks episode a 8/10 mostly due to the backstory that was explained in this weeks episode. There wasn’t a lot of action but I still enjoyed it and I definitely look forward to the next episode. But what did everyone else think of this episode? Comment below and let me know!
So I know that many of you have heard about the new Dragon Ball Z anime that is coming out in July! I am on the fence about this and let me tell you why!
On one side I’m very excited since there hasn’t been a new Dragon Ball Z series in 18 years. Plus it’s a continuation and not a reboot so it will be interesting to see what happens. Also it raises a few questions such as is the artistic style going to change because since it is a new era when it comes to anime it would be neat to see our favorite characters with new looks. Also how long will the anime be?
Now for the other side I’m slightly apprehensive about this just because of the hassle that has happened with Sailor Moon Crystal.
I understand that Sailor Moon Crystal is just following the original manga this time but it’s not considered a reboot of the original so it’s an original in its own right. I’m just scared that when the new Dragon Ball Z series comes out it won’t live up to the hype surrounding the show. I mean while Sailor Moon Crystal has been a good series so far many would agree that it could have been done better.
So those are my thoughts so far on the announcement of this new Dragon Ball Z series. But what do you all think of the annoucement? I would love to read your thoughts. So comment down below and I will comment back!
So this week we were graced with a brand new episode of Sailor Moon Crystal! This wasn’t my favorite episode but it was definitely my favorite part of the series.
The episode started back off with a little bit of a recap as far as to how they got to 30th century Tokyo and the appearance of Chibiusa’s dad.
Then he dropped the bomb on Usagi and Mamoru by telling them that he is Mamoru in the future, Neo Queen Serenity is future Usagi, and Chibiusa is their daughter.
Let just say they were shocked and their faces were hilarious. Oh and don’t let me forget that you also met Diana the daughter of Artemis and Luna. The look on their faces was also funny.
Now I hate to say it but after that I didn’t really pay attention to the rest of the episode. Well I did but it wasn’t all that exciting to me until Prince Demande captured Usagi. That is also where the episode ends. I can’t wait for the next one to see how everyone handles that.
Overall I give this episode a 7/10 only because of the exciting part in the beginning but then after that I lost interest. So comment down below what you thought of this weeks episode or this review! I will always answer back!
So this week we were able to get a new episode of Sailor Moon Crystal and this episode I must say was amazing.
This episode we saw Usagi, Minako, Mamoru, Luna, Artemis, and Chibi-Usa travel forward in time to 30th century Tokyo. Plus we also got to meet the amazing Sailor Pluto.
I really liked this episode mostly because you were able to get more insight as to why Chibi-Usa went back in time to get the Silver Crystal. Plus this episode wasn’t entirely focused on fighting the Black Moon Clan. Even though they did show up during the middle of the episode it was a quick battle which caused some excitement but didn’t over power the episode.
Overall though I give this episode a 7.5/10. I was interested in the episode and loved finally seeing another Sailor Scout. But I’m mostly excited for the next episode that is to come.
But what did everyone else think of the weeks episode. Comment down below and like always I will answer back.
So I just finished watching the newest episode of Sailor Moon Crystal and I actually enjoyed the episode.
It started off with kind of a quick recap with what happened during the last episode with Sailor Jupiter now being kidnapped. Also then Venus decides that once and for all they have to figure out if Chibi-Usa is friend or foe. Although they find out in the most unusual way which was by using one of Petz Malefic Black Crystal earrings. Chibi-Usa became scared as soon as she saw it in Mamoru’s hand.
In this episode we are also introduced to Calaveras who is the medium of the Spectre Sister. She uses her channeling powers to lure out the Sailor Scouts and is triumphant when Minako does appear.
Also Chibi-Usa takes Usagi’s brooch and that’s causes a whole bunch of havoc especially when they are confronted by Rubeus.
The best thing though had to be when Mamoru uses a new power that he awakens. I was so happy to finally see him using something besides those roses.
But overall I enjoyed this episode and can’t wait to see Sailor Pluto in the next episode.
I give this weeks episode a 7/10. It was still very run of the mill but it did answer a few questions that arose in the last episode. But what did you all think of this weeks episode? Comment down below and like always I will answer back.
