So, Sailor Moon Crystal aired.

Personally, I find it mediocre. The new animation style for Usagi does lend itself to some pretty, model looking pictures of the girls when it isn't looking horribly off model.  Everyone is blonde now.  Haruna is blonde. Shingo is blonde. Both Princess and Queen Serenity are blonde. 

I did love the opening sequence and a few things in it were very reminiscent of Pretty Cure in a good way.  I am so glad they changed the theme song.  I love Momoiro Clover Z but Moonlight Densetsu is not the type of song that fits their talents. Moon Pride, on the other hand, is perfect for their strengths.

I enjoyed the music, but I was expecting that as it is my favorite composer from Pretty Cure.

It was an almost 1:1 adaptation of the manga.  There were a few new scenes thrown in but it was pretty much all familiar territory.  Overall, the live action Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon is still my favorite version of the first episode as it hit everything it needed to while still doing some things originally.  I really hope there will be more expansion later as the manga really isn't that good.  It is very repetitive and formulaic in the construction of each arc and most characters don't get much development.
