  1. nice design…
    but usagi actually need this striking moon face..
    that’s missing in this new design ;)

    rei looks more mature – but i like it ^^

  2. I like the old anime better. I don’t feel comfortable with this design. But hey, I’m a moonie so I’ll just appreciate the hard work of thinking to redesign Sailor Moon and the others. But I really loved the old design. I miss it. :,(

  3. Wow, this is excellent! I really like these designs, not to mention while not all the original seiyuu return, the ones who are there are truly excellent. Ami Mizuno (my favorite Sailor Senshi) played by Kanemoto Hisako who played my second favorite PreCure (Cure Peace). This is wonderful, the other choices are stellar too, really glad Kotono Mitsuishi is returning to play Usagi. this looks like it’ll be great.

  4. I’m glad that they didn’t stick to the modern ‘moe’ trend and tried to go for a classic 90s anime look. Besides this formally ‘is’ a celebration of the manga style, not Toei Animation style. I love the more obvious differences in their eyes (Ami has round, gentle eyes), Usagi has wide, childish eyes.. and Rei-chan has elegant almond-shaped eyes.. while in older Sailormoon seasons, they had the same eyes with altered coloring.
