@Bigheart711:

I wonder why the Sailor Scout girls aren't wearing Medieval-like outfits like Mamoru did back then. Agreed, the episode was pretty awesome compared to the recent episodes we had.

Episode 10: We get more backstory on the Guardians and we also get some for the Dark Kingdom's Four Kings. I was impressed on how it ended up turning out.

@Bigheart711:

I'm pretty shocked that the Queen Beryl's men, Nephrite, Jadeite, Kunzite, and Zoisite are Mamoru's knights. They also fall in love with Sailor Moon's posse. We have a giant lovey dovey thing going on. Funny, Zoisite and Kunzite were love with each other.

@takashichea: Yeah, back in SM91 Zoisite and Kunzite were a couple and Nephrite was with a completely different love interest. Here in SM Crystal, each were the love interests of the other guardians, which I'm sure happened in the manga version too. I was actually shocked too.

@Bigheart711:

That reminds me to finish Sailor Moon on HULU. I have never read the Sailor Moon manga before.

@takashichea: I'll have to catch up on Hulu's releases on Sailor Moon R. The uncut ending to the original was actually breathtaking to me. If you decide to finish SM91 there, prepare for things to go down.

@Kelleth:

I don't think that was a skirt to begin with. It's a Sailor Bikini. :)

I actually did watch the original but didn't finish season 5. There was a lot of filer but the meat of the story wasn't as cheesy as one might think.

Episodes 9 and 10: Damn, bro.

We got an intense setup and an shocking battle between the guardians, and everyone under Queen Metalia's influence and got a bit of backstory on Beryl too. There's also another arc to come up once the Winter 2015 season arrives.

Finished episode 12.

I didn't think this series involved that kind of scene, given its innocent look. I think they didn't do a good job, making a subtle censorship for Sailor Moon's scene.

@takashichea:

Episode 13: There was something among that subtlety revealed in this episode, but I won't say until you've seen it. The battle of Queen Metalia did have some rather rough spots beneath it, (including some animation problems and the souls of Endimyon's knights being too bright to see) and the cliffhanger didn't do this episode justice either. Hopefully the next one patches most of everything up as we enter the Dark Moon arc. There must've been some controversy that I must not have covered, considering that comments got disabled for the particular episode. Perhaps it was because this episode wasn't executed that well.

@Bigheart711:

I couldn't access Crunchyroll last night. I tried to watch Sailor Moon Ep. 13 on the PS3. It froze a lot. I was lazy to watch on the computer. Same for the other shows I wanted to watch last night.

I'll get back to you. I wanted to see this controversy and get to the bottom of the truth.

@Bigheart711:

Finished Ep. 13 right now. I'm not sure if there was a controversy. Crunchyroll disabled comments on news and videos this week maybe because of site issues. I have a hard time watching Crunchyroll on the computer and PS3.

I did notice the animation errors you mentioned.

Post by Bigheart711 (4,295 posts) See mini bio Level 21

@takashichea: Earlier, I just realized that the animation errors (especially, Sailor Moon's "spinning" of the Silver Crystal's Rod) WERE the reason over the riots that happened in areas that mentioned the episode. Most of the comment areas from Crunchyroll should be back by now.

@Bigheart711:

Oh I see. I guess I overlook it. I haven't really got riled about this anime. It's been fine for me.

Post by Bigheart711 (4,295 posts) See mini bio Level 21

@takashichea: Same here. I was one of the people that didn't get that mad at all at such errors (which they fix in the BD/DVD versions anyways).
