I havent watched thenshow yet, and i didnt get to watch much of the old series.

i love the old style, but i understand e got a new anime style now. It doesnt bother me much at all except for the way they walk in the intro, and the eyes are overpowering....

But the big problem for me is the transformations because the fast cgi is hurting my eyes....T_T

it's not the same story, and the BIG difference is the focus on their previous life (and her loves story), you have to watch it :p

I am with double thoughts with the new series. I expected more but while reading some of the positive reviews here i should have an open heart and watch the new series in a different perspective

Did anyone notice the opening is a little different now? Like Queen Serenity's hair is the right colour now in it.

I love that they did CG for the transformation! It actually gives it a more fluid style, and this transformation actually looks like it belongs to an anime these days.

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:

Someone told me that they used 3D effect to save money. As an ONA (Original Net Animation) with no TV broadcast to increase revenue, Sailor Moon Crystal has a very low budget. You might assume the 3D animation seen occasionally in Crystal was a stylistic choice, but the reality is that this is a cost-saving effort utilised by many modern series. High-detail scenes with a lot of action, movement or special effects are much cheaper and faster to animate using 3D models than by drawing each frame. Other modern anime examples include Aikatsu! and Tribe Cool Crew, primarily 2D animated shows that switch to 3D animation for the characters’ movement-heavy song/dance performances. Whether you like 3D animation in anime or not, it has become a necessity with the shrinking budgets of the modern anime industry, particularly for ONA like Crystal

Yeah, but the good news is that TV stations will start airing Sailor Moon Crystal in this April from its first episode, and posted a new key visual for it as well. The streaming of the web anime series started in July 2014, the episodes to be aired on TV will be the "upgrade" versions, which were brushed up for the DVD/Blu-ray after the web-streaming. And I think if they do have enough money, they might fix some animation and reconsidered the transformation. (Which I hopefully so) Though I wish everyone would stop complaining and get over it. It didn't bothered me because it never did or I've seen other anime that used 3D effect such as this One Piece Black Rock Shooter Pretty Cure Hatsune Miku Heck, nobody even complained about it. What's with all complained about look like a barbie doll or skinny stick?

We can only hope.

There's no nostalgia factor attached to any of your examples. The whiners grew up with the original Sailor Moon, and as a result see Crystal through heavily tinted nostalgia goggles. In their eyes, Crystal is nothing short of an affront to their childhood.
Or something. I don't know.
What I do know is that I didn't watch Sailor Moon as a kid, so I didn't see anything particularly "wrong" with her design for Crystal. I did, however, find the show incredibly shallow and boring and very quickly stopped watching it.
To be fair, when I tried watching the original on Hulu, I found it to be just as boring and shallow. Guess Sailor Moon's just not for me.

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.

OMG DID YOU SEE THE EPISODEEEEEE YEETTT!

I will admit that CG sequences are horribly overdone in anime these days, but there are reasons for that. Still the CG in this clip looks pretty well done.

Speaking of which, in answer to your question, no. I haven't seen the first episode yet. I didn't know it was up. Where might I find it?

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 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.
