My favorite in-between frame in Classic

Crystal Defenders, when the subject of Crystal’s atrocious animation quality, love to use their trump card:

You caught screenshots on scenes that were in mid motion and never meant to be still images (which you can do to any movie or animation)

And this is just one example of unironic usage of this “argument” (which is legit by itself, but… not for Crystal) out of thousands probably. They have been debunked long ago, mainly by taking mid-motion frames from the Classic - which wasn’t perfect anime, but did follow standards in order to be watchable. 

I want to show another example from the Classic, simply because it’s my favorite one. This probably was NEVER meant to be seen, because in total it is on the screen for 3 frames. 3 frames out of 24 frames per second. About… 1/8 of a second. That’s really tiny amount of time. It’s incredibly difficult to catch even with modern video players, but at ye old times, using cassettes? I am pretty sure that was impossible, at least using regular non-professional VCR players. And when you watch TV in the 90′s, you don’t really even HAVE the ability to pause. 

(meanwhile Crystal, being an ONA made in 2014, actually had to realize the fact that people can and will pause it)

So keep in mind that this was never meant to be seen in detail. 

And this is much, much, MUCH superior to the majority, if not too all of Crystal stills. I didn’t expect this level of details from this tiny 3-frames moment, even with all of my love to the Classic.

And the best part?

HE EMOTES.

And holy shit that’s evil! This moment is so short, that it is barely noticeable and distinguishable to the naked eye, and yet even here he shows his unique character. And overall this gives incredibly unsettling moment.

Here is a gif. 

In-between frames? Mid-motion frames? Here are your in-between mid-motion frames. 

Sailor Moon wants YOU to be safe!

Japan’s Ministry of Health is enlisting Sailor Moon to help contain the spread of chlamydia, syphilis, and HIV/AIDS, among other STIs.

In recent years, sexually transmitted infection cases have spiked in Japan. During the 1990s, Sankei News reports that the number never got over a thousand, but as of this October, there were 3,284 people with reported STIs. 

The poster campaign features Sailor Moon and a reworked version of her original “On behalf of the moon, I will punish you!” catchphrase. Instead, the STI poster reads, “If you don’t get checked out, I will punish you!” 

According to Sankei, the campaign is aimed at young women in their teens, 20s, and 30s, but it’s also a good reminder for all. 

They’re even giving away condoms!.

YASSSS GET THAT SAFETY SIS!.

THANK YOU MOM!!.

First she defeated Goku now she’s defeating STI!

World hunger you’re next!
