If you haven’t watched Sailor Moon Crystal yet, open a new tab now and head over to Hulu or CrunchyRoll to watch it and then come back here. Your best bet would be to suffer through Hulu’s commercials as Viz Media is monitoring viewership there for the potential interest in a dub.
There was A LOT of disappointment over the new animation style but I found it to be pretty awesome and it flowed quite nicely. I also saw someone have issues with the episode only being 24 minutes long. That’s for real, my friend.
As someone who grew up with the show, I’m really hoping it gets enough backing to continue past the first season. It was just AMAZING and I really love that it follows more closely to the original manga. Not only that, everything is as it should and not chopped to high hell.
