I was not surprised that they would try to get closer to the manga's style...still, I was upset because I absolutely hate the way Naoko Takeuchi draws faces. I'm not crazy about the rest of her art style, either, though I admit she gets the "dreamy" feel down perfectly on paper.

I guess as long as the new anime is high-quality I won't mind that much. The original's lazy backgrounds and animation got to me sometimes. (I'm an art/animation major so I really notice stuff like that even when I don't want to...)

I'm still not sold on these. ._. I don't mind the close ups, but don't like the full body shots. I keep trying to love them but siiiiiigh these just seem so amateurish. They feel so flat and just not like the gorgeous girls I love. ;.;

This relatively short art crit video talks about a lot of the things I didn't like about the new art: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MVi1DEBCaGk

These are supposed to be eighth graders. According to Google, this is what an eighth grader looks like.

Really, the scouts look like they're in their 20's.

Also, try standing like this, I dare you. With your knee pointed inward and your foot pointed outward. It is literally impossible. Her foot is rotated almost 180 degrees from where her knee is pointing. I don't care how stylized and idealized and whatever these designs are--that's just lazy, bad anatomy.

The trailer was animated nicely (though the backgrounds shown were meh), but now I'm afraid we're just going to run into different problems, if they're sticking so close to the 'style' that they just throw basic drawing skills out of the window...

AAARGH I am going to hate the art and yet I'm still going to love the heck out of the anime, just like I did with the manga, but it really makes me angry. They really get the mood right so I get all the feels even though my brain is like "wow that was like 17 held cels in a row. I guess they didn't feel like animating today. Oh look, Mercury doesn't even have eyes in this panel. Yikes why is Usagi's face so weird-looking?"

IDK but I really like the designs. They look fresh and polished. I'm really looking forward to seeing the anime and how the new style works. I will say they look a bit young to me, younger than in the anime. But it could be the eyes.

Saw this picture on facebook. It might be Mamoru! I'm so glad that we get to see him in his school uniform wearing glasses and holding his bag! <3

He doesn't look like Mamoru at all imo but I'm going to wait until I see him animated to give my final judgement.

It's the glasses that make him hard to recognize for me. I think once he's colored and we see him without them, he'll look more familiar. And we haven't even seen Tuxedo Mask yet.

Mamoru has glasses in the manga and he looks hot with glasses in the manga. I approve.


This is probably the only scenario where i will be like "BUT IN THE MANGA" to any arguments. xD

I actually don't mind him at all. He looks older and serious, but I think that of all the designs. I dislike his new design the least. =p

I'm not really a fan of the longer legs. These girls are suppose to be like what, early teens? They all look supermodel tall, not regular girl tall. I do agree with other people that the long legs look weird with the senshi outfits. I think once we see them in the anime, it'll look a lot better. 

I do however think that the girls individual designs look amazing. They each look like an individual, not just the same base slapped with a slightly different hair style. I love it. I love how Ami looks and Rei too. I'm excited to see how everyone looks, especially the Outer Senshi.

The only problem I have with people complaining about the long legs issue is well...the manga and previous anime character designs all had really long legs (and lets not forget Naoko's really wacky proportions, huge hands, wonky ankles and feet...her drawing skills at times with that stuff was obviously either rushed or an assistant or something). The only times the girls look realistic is in live action versions of SM. xD

But you bring up a good point, each girl does seem pretty individual.  I know the older anime each girl had their on little uniqueness but depending on the animator and season, they often did look like same base with different eye color and hair.

I kind of like that Usagi is looking more serious. One thing that always bothered me about SM was Usagi's childishness. I always liked her better when she was acting more mature and I really like the season when she grew up a lot and we could see a lot of character development then she turns around and goes right back to being so immature. I kinda felt bad for Mamo lol. I'm not saying she needs to be serious all the time, and never be fun, but I would like to see a bit more seriousness from her and perhaps some major character development. That's just my opinion though. 

I haven't had a chance to read the manga yet, but does Minako have hose beads around her waist in the manga? I know she had a chain attack in the 90 anime, but in all the concept art for the new series, I'm seeing these chains and I'm confused.

Yes she does, the chain was part of her outfit and wasn't summoned or anything.

So does she use them as an attack or are they just more for decoration, part of her outfit type thing?

The chain on her belt is from the manga and she used it to fight with. In the anime the chain magically appeared in her attack.
