let me ask you, my anonymous friend, WHY do you think “everyone else” is hating on smc?
because they’re all butthurt nerds who have their nostalgia goggles on too tight? because they’re somehow jealous of your super cool anime? because they just don’t fucking like sailor moon?
maybe a few of those reasons might be true for a few of the people who are complaining about it. sure.
but the main reason people are pissed off about/making fun of smc is because they’re disappointed. and rightfully so. there is NO EXCUSE for this measure of ineptitude by the animation staff - not when it comes to an anime like sailor moon. people were hopeful and excited for the reboot when it was announced (YEARS ago i might add), and it hasn’t lived up to shit. it’s a blatant slap in the face. it’s an outright cashgrab, capitalizing on the love and nostalgia people felt for the original sailor moon. a reboot for an iconic show like sailor moon could have had all the budget in the damn world, and they CHOSE to make it as cheaply as possible, with staff that is pretty obviously inexperienced.
i’ll repeat my earlier post once more - people who are defending this show are doing a disservice to everyone who loves sailor moon. acting like there isn’t any sort of problem, trying to defend every erroneous action toei takes, people screaming at the top of their lungs “IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT DON’T WATCH IT!!!!!” - none of that is going to help. these people are literally just sending a message to the team who is making this show that it is 150% OKAY to butcher the shit out of a beloved franchise to make a quick dollar or two. they are feeding you shit and you are eating it and enjoying it and telling them “yes please sir please give me more shit i love it so much”
i am 200 billion percent behind people watching crystal and being entertained by it and getting enjoyment out of it. that’s awesome, man. watch whatever you want. but shutting your eyes and plugging your ears and insisting “THE OLD SHOW HAD ANIMATION ERRORS TOO, YOU’RE JUST BUTTHURT BECAUSE NOSTALGIA” is SUPER FUCKING DUMB. pretending there isn’t a problem and getting pissed off at people who actually acknowledge the problem and talk about it just makes you look like a complete jackass. YOU ARE ALLOWED TO LIKE SOMETHING AND ALSO HAVE VALID CRITICISMS OF IT. you can enjoy something while acknowledging its flaws. and good lord, sailor moon crystal has plenty of flaws to acknowledge.
