|The new title screen for Sailor Moon Crystal|
Hi everyone, its Gaby. So today, July 5th 2014, is the new release of the new Sailor Moon Crystal series, a brand new reboot of the original sailor senshi anime Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon. The show where school girls in skimpy sailor outfits fight the evil of the galaxy from taking the pure hearts or life energy of unsuspecting characters in the show.
Of course as we can expect this being a total reboot, they have kept the original characters with Usagi of course being our main protagonist. My only qualm with this is that her voice is a tad bit annoying at first, but as the show progressed I got used to it. Usagi being a clutz and a scatterbrain steps on the cat Luna as she hurries to school, Luna then later finds her and tells her she is Sailor Moon and then its history. And may I also say the first episode felt extremely rushed, but its only a 20 some minute show so you can only do so much.

Yes the animation is newly revamped, however the characters look a lot thinner than in the original and to me its a little bit...uh...not sure. I guess its just personal preference.
The opening song "Moon Pride" by Momoiro Clover Z has a little bit of a rock feel to it, and I don't think its as catchy as "Moonlight Densetsu" but its still pretty cool.
I do believe we can expect the usual with this reboot as in the original...Bad guy makes trouble, sailor scouts save the day, if they get in trouble, Tuxedo mask will come in etc.
If you are a fan of the original Sailor Moon, then I do suggest you check this out, it may bring a lot of thoughts about the old one, and you may find yourself unknowingly pointing out differences.
If you are new to the sailor senshi fandom, then yes watch this and enjoy it! It's cute, has talking animals, pretty girls in school uniforms, and romance.
