Well I just got done with Sailor Moon Crystal Episode 1. You know that Reboot Toei has been screwing with us with for the last two years!
A LOT of hype and nostalgia went into this all around and I’m hoping I can give an outlook that’s a bit fair. So, let’s begin.
Voice acting in general. Having the original Sailor Moon come back and we know the character is gonna be done right was a proper move. Furthermore, I myself, and others on the net do approve of the new Luna. She did quite well.
The Adaptation. Coming from the manga source it did a reasonably good job with things as of the first chapter or two at least.
The ED, the whole sequence was nice and well done!
Character designs. It’s like they stole the legs and JUST the legs from CLAMP.
The Transformation. Ladies and gentleman that is one of the most important pieces. Toei knows a little bit about CG, but it does not show here. That transformation was clunky, made Usagi look like a doll. It was overall static. No emotion in her face and overall a let down. Let’s not forget the music which sounds like they grabbed off of Precure. A bad showing in one of the most important parts of the whole series.
The OP. Generic painfully generic and absolutely nothing compared to the Legendary Moonlight Densetsu.
So there you have it, it wasn’t an utter failure all around but, they screwed up some extremely important key points that they can’t even fix. Oh well, next time (in 2 weeks). My favorite lady makes her debut. I pray they didn’t screw her up.
What? You don’t see why I’m not burning things. Why? Well let’s do some calm analysis:
What The Bleep does a Korean entertainment site know?
They can’t even spell ‘Transformers’
There’s no such thing as the ‘Tranformers News Center’
Other places on the net are going crazy about this, justifiably so, however, one needs to maintain a clear mind when reading such a ridiculous piece of news. Unless I get better intel, all reading this should consider it FICTION Thank you
Hey guys! Yeah, I know it’s been a while, and that I have a dozen back entries I should be working on, but dawg gone it, I think this show needs to be dragged out into the light and revealed for what it is…especially as I haven’t heard a lot about it online, even though it’s been licensed and dubbed by a major company. I’m Cajun Samurai, back in the saddle, and this is my review of B Geta H Kei – Yamada’s First Time.
Disclamer: Please note that there will be times that I will be somewhat uncharacteristically blunt and I will be talking about things of a sexual nature–considering the subject matter of this particular show, it’s hard NOT to. But don’t worry, as usual, everything will be kept at or below PG-13. Continue reading →
Hey guys! Samurai Here! [MAN, it's been a LONG time since I typed that!]
Yes, I know it’s been a couple months since I last updated. It seems as though the outside world has conspired to keep me away from my anime blogging duties, but today I throw up a rude gesture with my fingers to the outside world and give you guys an update on what’s going on and how I plan to proceed with my reviews and writings.
