Obvious title is obvious
Like any anime fan, I was extremely excited to learn that there was going to be a remake of one of the biggest pinnacles of an otaku’s childhood (it was one of those shows one would watch as a kid back in the 90’s/early 2000’s without realizing it was anime)
(well… I didn’t think of it as anime, just another cartoon to watch on saturdays like pokemon, digimon, dragon ball, etc.)
While I love being able to see an anime get a reboot with a closer look to the original (especially if the ending isn’t the same)… I’m not a hundred percent all for the remake-
but that doesn’t mean I’ll hate it! I, like most people, enjoyed the Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood anime, and even the not-so-welcomed Soul Eater Not! anime.
The look of Soul Eater Not! was different, but was closer to the manga. which gave it a unique look (though it could be argued it already had a unique look with the way the characters were designed).
The storyline of Brotherhood was a lot more drawn out and conscious of the world it was in, making use of all the characters instead of shoving them off at the side for anime plot line.
So why is it that I still can’t see myself digging the new Sailor Moon?
One, I still don’t believe this girl is in middle school, even by today’s standards.
Two. It feels like everyone’s only making it a big thing because of nostalgic reasons.
(Let me explain)
Back in when Sailor Moon first premiered and ran, there were only a handful of anime targeted specifically for girls that were brought to the states. Sailor Moon, Tokyo Mew Mew, and Card Captor Sakura were the among the few. They were different then say, something like the old My Little Pony cartoons. They had a very girly look to them, but had actual story lines and conflict that ran very deep.
Now, however, with all these magic girls series running around, it is no longer unique, and has become a normal thing, even its own genre. And Sailor Moon is one of the biggest magic girl series out there, so it’s already easy to guess the plot and characters.
Though it does appear to follow the manga plot, so the childish nature of it should be toned down enough (seriously, go back and read the original manga. plot in every chapter. You can easily skip ten episodes of the 90’s anime and still be in the exact same place).
That, and it’ll certainly be a better and more useful remake then say, Dragon Ball Z Kai where it was just redone frame by frame.
I haven’t seen any of the episodes for the Sailor Moon Crystal, but if it can stay closer to the manga then the original 90’s anime (which it seems like they are, just by the look of the character) It’s got a good chance.
(The hell am I talking about. It’s already a big thing >.>)
