"You see, the thing about a debate is that you don't mold the rules to your liking and bring up points completely irrelevant to what's being talked about."

I'm thinking about certain politicians when I read that...

However I agree with Magus on the point that it doesn't matter how good people consider the individual parts of a project (writer, director, animator) to be, what matters is what they churn out, the final piece.
There are animes with great art but horrible storylines, there are animes with horrible art but great storylines. I think I speak for most people when I say that I'd rather see the latter than the former.
I think sailor moon has charming characters, solid art, classic anime styling (which I love) but the storyline of the individual episodes and cyclic nature of the seasons make it repetitive.
I think by this point most people are fatigued by it and the people in charge made no real effort to spice things up until the stars season.

So I finished watching Stars, I forgot how really wonderful the series really is. Usagi is so naive and of course if it were a semi-real situation she'd be cut to shreds... but I don't know... something just so pure about her character that I haven't found in any other series. Heartwarming, it snaps me out of my depression for a little while and makes me hope for a better world somehow.

SailorDecember- I've read studies that say wikipedia is actually quite reliable as compared with encyclopedias. I cannot confirm the reliability of this information, however.

Zach and I sort of stalled when it came to watching Sailor Moon. We moved and now all the DVDs are in some unpacked box. Maybe this weekend I'll see if I can find them...I really don't want him to judge Sailor Moon based entirely on the first season and the weird twin arc in R.

I think I might know how to explain it. It was Power Rangers without the mechs.

All I watched was the first episode, I don't know if it got better from there because I couldn't bear to watch another minute of that...

No worse than playing one of those MMORPGs like Everquest, World of Warcraft, etc.

200 hours is nothing compared to the chunk of life that some people waste on those.

I still find it enjoyable after all of these years. When I was stuck in the airports a few weeks ago I watched the first few episodes streaming on Hulu.

So I have finally had a chance to watch the first episode ... and let me say I LOVE IT.

I went into it with a lot of trepidation because, as other have correctly pointed out, this is a series that has already entered my nostalgia memory zone. I was so afraid that trying to recapture the feeling of my childhood experience of the show was impossible. I think one of the key things to allow me to accept this retelling. (I don\'t think it will be a \"reboot.\" It already feels more like a legend that has infinite variations around a common theme than a proper reboot.) This is largely, I think, due to the seismic shift in art style. Holy carp, the animation work on this is beautiful. To the point that, as Marsie aptly points out, the 3D computer rendering is the red-headed stepchild of the episode.

Actually, I would say the only thing that bothered me the entire show was the transformation sequence. It honestly seemed like they used all their budget on the episode and were like \"Oh #$%$@#!!, we forgot the ribbons thing where she\'s sparkly naked so it\'s not child porn!\" It\'s too glossy so it sort of clashes completely with the nearly hand-drawn quality of the whole episode surrounding it. The other thing that bothered me in the transformation sequence was the weird-ass \'rubber arm\' syndrome she seems to have when they are panning away from her hand. Serious anatomical issues going on there (well, aside from the fact that her lungs must be somewhere near here hip bones because holy crap-- somebody feed this girl.

She a twig figure. I love it. I love that they left her that way.

I am growing so tired of the PC police. I\'m sorry she\'s not realistically sized. She\'s a cartoon, and she looks perfect. This show isn\'t an advertisement for cosmetics. It\'s a piece of art. And man, was it beautiful. Gorgeous. I can\'t even begin to explain how pretty all of the things. I just cant even.


OK. I definitely shouldn\'t have had that 3rd glass of champaigne. So many feels, guys! I can\'t believe I have to wait 2 more weeks to watch the next episode. This is already bigger than those stupid mopey vampire people on True Blood. (Except Eric. You complete me, Eric.)

Bravo. Can\'t wait for more.

@Magus;
The form is closer to the Manga variant. If it really was her "Super" form,she'd have a gold crescent moon in the middle of her Tiara, a yellow choker with a red heart, translucent shoulder... things, and the skirt would be white with yellow then blue at the bottom.

The hair decorations and the extra accessory on her choker is "regular form". The original anime didn't bother with the white hair decorations until Super and Eternal.

I hope this is the right information and that I didn't end up chasing my tail in circles.
