guardians of the seasons

Okay, I understand people love Jason Todd but he got his own movie already, calm down. 

I want to see Kaldur get the freaking respect he deserves from his teammates and friends and Atlantis

I want to see my Queen Sha’lain’a Durham get animated and help her son deal with the aftermath of his undercover mission

I want to see Artemis Crock grow and develop as her own person without being defined by her relationship with Wally

I want to see Virgil Hawkins still meeting up with his friends the Runaways because maybe they don’t want to be heroes after all they’ve seen but after all that they’ve been through they can’t help but feel like some sort of family.

I want to see Tim Drake smile onscreen and get to show off his incredible detective skills for more than one minute

I want to see exactly what Mal Duncan has chosen to do with his life

I want to see Karen Beecher as a scientist who uses her discoveries to change the world for the better.

I just want these characters to get what they deserve before people start whining to bring back the white favs.

But that’s just my opinion.

Everyone’s talking about Jashi or whatever and I’m just mad that best bot is dead.

And the Guardian apparently, without having a rematch with Jack.

And the Scotsman and his daughters still haven’t shown up in, like, five episodes.

And the next episode is the last one despite all of that!

Top 5 things fans Loved about Sailor Moon Crystal when it first aired

I was just thinking about some of the reasons that made season 1 and 2’s sales so great (Source: ANN) and why it was a Top Seller on Rightstufanime. (These production details were missing in season 3 and the director of season 3, Chiaki Kon, did not include them.)

So here’s a list of the Top 5 reasons fans Loved Sailor Moon Crystal Set 1 & 2.

5. Keeping the manga mature feel and aiming the target audience to adult women who grew up with the series.

4. The Blu-Ray fixes and re-draws on the HD DVDs and improvements between the TV (pictured bottom) and stream versions (pictured top) of the anime.

3. Focusing on beautiful standout details like flowy skirts, lip gloss, hair, highlights, lighting, shading, eyes…etc.

2. Keeping the elegant, unaltered designs of the manga and turning it into an anime. (The designs from the perfect edition covers.)

1. Unique, real-time attack sequences! Non-stock footage, never repeated, action-packed scenes!

My hopes for SMC Dream/Naoko's vision

(Since everyone is doing this…and literally everyone in the smc fandom has different expectations for the new designs in season 4. But no one has been a voice I personally 100% agree with (everyone is slighty different) and I know this is pointless since Japanese animators do not read tumblr responses from any western fans but here it goes.)

Sailor Moon as visioned by Naoko Takeuchi, right from the beginning had a myriad of inspirations that inspired the creation of Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon and the Sailor V manga. Maybe it might be hard to notice at first but these inspirations become more apparent with each volume. There is most definitely a reason for everything she does.

So in order to talk about “my hopes” I need to tell you about Naoko’s. We are one in the same and I wouldn’t change a thing. She loves many things and all of the things she loves are present in Bishojo Senshi Sailor Moon!

She loves fashion and was frequently inspired by Vogue and 90’s couture. Even some of the outfits were directly inspired from signature couture pieces! This is why proportions appear elongated and there’s a certain elegance and maturity to her designs. If you’ve ever seen a fashion designer make a sketch then you’ll know why.

She loved figure skating and the movement and elegance of dancing which is why everything has the caught-in-the-wind effect. You’ve probably noticed the skirts look a lot like the skirts figure skaters wear. That’s why the clothes are short and flowy so they can move around in them easily.

One of the most important inspirations for the message of Sailor Moon (SM) and the concept was her love for Astronomy and astrophotography. This probably explains the weightlessness of her designs or why there is a noticeable reduction in gravity in her drawings like everything is floating.

When times were stressful, she dreamed of one day, going up in space and looking back on Earth. She tells us we only have one Earth and to experience such a thing from that vantage point is a reminder of what true happiness must be like. A small reminder that we share more similarities in each other than we have differences.

She loved takarazuka (Japanese) style theater and this probably inspired some of the role-reversals you see in SM. This is why most of the villians are female. Also why Tuxedo Kamen plays a role similar to the damsel in distress or why he typically has powers normally associated with female characters. The key here is female empowerment. You get the sense of strength from this inspiration. This explains the guardian-aspect of the characters here.

Finally one of the last inspirations that drove her to become a mangaka was reading girls manga. She loved this concept and she was a big supporter of seeing more media produced for women by women in the future.

Remember this was at a time in the early 1990s where the Equal Employment Opportunity Law was passed which enabled women to go out into the world and work. She thought it was long overdue and that women needed to be involved in the industry.

So to sum up this short but very long article, when you start saying things like “I want the animators to change their proportions or I don’t think they should wear lip gloss.” What you are effectively saying is that you support the removal of something that makes Sailor Moon, Sailor Moon and so special to so many.

The proportions resemble fashion and add elegance/sophistication and give the girls a sleek maturity. Hence why they are styled with lip gloss to make a statement. It’s empowering. You’re effectively supporting the removal of something that makes them so powerful. It’s literally a fantasy and not meant to be taken literally. This is not real-life, it’s a work of fiction inspired by real life.

So yes, I hope the sequel of Sailor Moon Crystal takes these inspirations into account. I hope dream is dreamy, elegant, mature & elongated, stylized, empowering, flowy & weightless, caught-in-the-wind and an overall fantasy from a females perspective.

In dream they are all 15 (some are older) and in stars they turn 16. I see no point in supporting super exaggerated anime expressions that make the girls appear younger when they are not at this point.

Sailor Moon is a story about a group of girls with tragic pasts who were forced to grow up quickly and fight for what they believe in at a very young age. Don’t try to change Sailor Moon, let them be who they are. Let them grow up in front of our eyes and be the strong and courageous women they were destined to become.

It’s a powerful message not easily digestible by a society that still views women as the exact opposite of all things Sailor Moon stands for. Sailor Moon never once acts masculine. She emodies everything feminine. She has the bows, the skirt, the make-up, the earrings, tiara and the flawless hair and she stands strong in the face of what seems to be impossible circumstances.

She makes us all believe the impossible has a chance in hell to become possible again. That we all stand a chance, even if the odds are against us. This is Naoko Takeuchi’s dream and this is my dream. So “#just let me dream” and “#take me to the stars

The moonlight is a messenger of Love.
