All I'm seeing in the comments is more or less along the lines of, "baww it's not as good as the original wwwaaah nostalgia" Seriously? It's looks just fine. In fact, I think it looks better. The movement is much more fluid and the lines and colors much more crisp. What's the problem? Looks interesting, if nothing else. Thanks for sharing. C:
Id rather not have the original. I like the old but I wanted more variety. If they didn't do cgi I'd be happier though. It reminds me too much of those 3d barbie movies :/
Personality once I learn how to anime, I intend to do this new tranformation sequence in the style of the new anime animation. It would make it more fluid because the scene looks weird going from two different types of animation in my opinion.
Loved it though. I like the blue backdrop and more hand movements.
Thank you. I appreciate it. Having just watched it, I...wasn't that impressed. The first 3/4 of it was fine, but once Usagi got the transformation thing and fought her first bad guy, it just became...rushed. I felt they could have cut out some stuff to give the first transformation and fight more of an impact. But that's my two cents. I've never been a big Sailor Moon fan. Hopefully as the series goes on, it'll grow on me.
It's very similar to the first episode of the old anime. A lot of the fight scenes were pretty rushed in that series, as well. I guess they made it that way for the younger audience, I don't know. I have no idea how similar/different this one will be to the old anime, so I guess we'll have to see what goes on as more episodes are released.
Oh, I see. As I said, I never did get into Sailor Moon back in the 90's, so I had no idea the fight scenes were rushed in that show as well. I do intend to watch a few more episodes to see if they get any better. I hope they do. Thanks for the information.
I'm so damn disappointed… The more I see the transformation scene, the less I like it :/ Bring us back the original transformation ! The design looks perfect for me but why… Why did they have to put CGI like this?
I watched it in hd, it wont look good on an actual tv. It reminds me of those 3d barbie movies. They should have stuck with one animation tdchnique or at lesst smooth out the cgi so she doesnt look so rubbery and weird during it :/
I totally agree with you. Not only it look so edgy the poses are so stiff for me. Making such a great re-make for 20th anniversary I expected something better :/. Let's hope that transformations are the weakest part of it.
I completely disagree. It interrupts the flow of the show and the cgi isn't good. An example of good 3d animated art would be final fantasy, this transformation falls so flat it reminds me of those old 39 barbie movies. If they rally wanted to do CGI they should have done better or at least stayed with the normal animation process that the rest of the episode has instead of trying to switch between drawn to computer 3d model.
It would have been perfect if they did the whole new sequence without the cgi rubber barbie look :/
