I feel that the new art style of the third season is going to have a bit more of a comical edge to it reminiscent of the 90's anime as opposed to the more elegant manga inspired art of the first two arcs.

What concerns me however is what this means for the future of Sailor Moon Crystal merchandise. We already have three Figuarts Zero figures in the Sako style, but this third season is practically a reboot.

Does that mean that particular line will cease being produced, and that the three figures we have will be collector's items?

I'm not sure how I feel about that.

I have my own misgivings about the SH Figuarts line (RE: Super Sailor Mercury and what will likely be the various brooch upgrades of the figures of Sailor Moon), but I was kind of hoping to have SH Figuarts of the characters in the Crystal style, or at most a Figuarts Zero of Pluto, the Shitennou, and Endymion.

I feel like they wouldn't completely stop production on the three Figurearts already out but for future ones, they may go in the style of the new season.

That's going to make for some wonky looking merchandise sets,no?

I wonder if that was what they intended the whole time, which is why they limited the merchandise to mainly wall scrolls and keychains.

I don't think the art style of the anime has to impact the production of figurearts. 

But, honestly, I've never noticed the difference in art style between the old and new seasons of Crystal.

Seasons 1 and 2:



Sailor Pluto:


Sailor ChibiMoon:



Season 3:




I only just now noticed that Pluto is keeping her garnet brooch, as opposed to receiving a black brooch in accord with the manga. Interesting.
