One of the many cartoons that I grew watching was Sailor Moon. I’m actually a big fan of the series. I know how girly it is, but I loved it as a child.
I usually hate reboots so I was a bit skeptical about watching this one, but it turned out to be a pretty good opening episode and I want to see what happens next.
Sailor Moon starts off with our main protagonist, Usagi, rushing out of her home to make it to school on time. On the way their she meets a cat trying to get a band-aid off of it’s head. After she helps the cat again she meets it again later on in the show and learns that she is the chosen to save the city from evil.
Nothing really exciting happened in this episode, but that’s to be expected with the very first episode of this reboot. Some main characters were introduced in this first episode though. Besides Sailor Moon herself we got to see Luna, the black cat, Tuxedo Mask, and Ami Mizuno, also known as Sailor Mercury.
I’m actually pretty excited to see what will happen in the next episode. I love the new art style in the game. You can tell technology has come a long way since the 90’s. Sailor Moon has never looked better, but I do think that the original first episode of this series was better than the new one.
Sailor Moon Crystal’s first episode was funny, had nice action, and most importantly was fun to watch. The only real negative thing I can say about the first episode is the subtitles were too hard to read because everything was so bright in the show.
I can understand Japanese just fine, but my wife can’t and I had to constantly translate what was going on because she couldn’t read the subtitles without straining her eyes. The subtitles are really white on a really white sidewalk. Imagine how hard it would be to see that if it happened constantly.
What I would like to see in the future for this new series is more character development for all of the characters. We already know who they are so I don’t think they should waste too much time getting the gang back together. I do think that having some deep character building with all of the characters would make this a really great show.
Sailor Moon Crystal didn’t impress me as much as the original cartoon did back in the 90’s, but I am curious to see what will happen in the future for this new Sailor Moon series.
