Sailor moon Crystal is here, we have all patiently waited for Naoko’s original vision and now finally, Act 1 has been released. Act 1 of Sailor Moon Crystal introduces Usagi in a similar fashion to the Manga and Act 2 promises to introduce Ami-chan in the same manner. I’m sure that we will find the same pacing as the Manga through out the remaining Acts.
I am huge Manga fan, but I also love the anime for its charm and the depth of character development (someting that Crystal may not have time for). In any case I will not be reviewing Sailor Moon Crystal, only time will tell if Crystal can live up to the legend. I trust Naoko, and I want to see Sailor Moon the way she intended to present it. I will say I am so happy with what I have just seen, it has reduced me to a literal puddle of nostalgia. No fandom can “pick nits” like ours, there will be time for that later, my advise to you is, stop and smell the roses.
