Everything can't be perfect. I think the transformation is ok, but then again we only saw Usagi's transformations. For all we know the other senshi's are horrid lol Hopefully as the reboot goes on it gets better.

Yeah I agree with Addelyn. Tbh I didn't even notice it was cgi until someone else mentioned it and I went back to watch it. I really like it and I also liked the camera angles to. Plus the opening has cgi in it too and it looks good to me. (I'm pretty sure the very beginning and end of the OP- when they are standing in the field of flowers - is cgi.) If you don't like it that's okay. It might grow on you or it might not. I thought the designs sucked but then it grew on me. I think it's best to focus on what you love about Crystal so far instead of what you don't like.

The mp3 for Moon Pride will come with MomoClo's single in the 30th of July. Hopefully, we'll have the short version when the first episode comes!

Really, those clips got me so hyped! My big problem with the art style still has to be the eyes (Could use more white), but other than that, I loved all of it! The girls attacking, the animation being so smooth, Mamoru being Hipster Manga Mamoru, UMBRELLAS.... The list goes on. The song really got me excited! The random clips of CGs were... Mh... Weird, though. Oh well, Toei did worse in terms of out of place CG. (*cought* Doki Doki Precure movie *cought*)

Mh... I just feel a bit like they try to emulate the manga too closely. This still shot of Usagi staring at Luna as she tells her "I've been looking for you. BTW, thanks for the help with the band aid." was a bit too long, even though I perfectly see what panel of the manga it represents. Having Luna pace around the bed or something would have worked too.

The henshin... Well, why I like the idea of using CG, I feel like the quality isn't as great as it should be. I'm pretty sure SM Crystal had a higher budget-per-episodes than Precure, yet the CG seems to lack some fluidity. (Compare to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TwcFRIg6LLQ ) But other than that, I'm really 100% behind this idea!

I'm still praying for the Infinity Arc to happen... Eheh, I can still dream.

the opening is alright for me...still not sure about the music though it is catchy, and it feels more actiony, more good for both genders. though i had to go back and look because WTF why is Selenity's hair blonde?!! no no no no nooooo...*cries* mother and daughter are not twins, whhhhyyyy....

and the transformation...some shots looked really good, while others were obviously CGI and cringe inducing. i generally do not like CGI like this in animes.nope.

Look at the dress, there isn't any doubts about it. It has to be her. You can barely see them, but pause: you can clearly see her "wings".

Well, Princess Serenity's hair was silver in the manga. Guess they went the other way this time? I like her better as blonde, though.
(Your majesty's proportions are a bit broken, there.)

(For some reasons, the "add image", "B", "I" and other symbols like this aren't there anymore in the message editor...?)

Well, she's supposed to look like she's 18 according to the Material Collection. Silver Millenium natives don't age.

I was really excited to see the frilled edges on probably-Queen Serenity's "wings." They're a really lovely detail that was not present in the original anime.

The thing is, it used to be animated on cells ^^ The fact that now it's all digital will make it surely easier to animate.
This is surely why Usagi has her hairclip, and everybody has their fuku specific-details. (Except Mako and Rei for some reasons...?)

I swear at this rate the entire episode will be leaked before the premiere, eheh.
The music just screams Suite/Smile Precure. I still find the CG a bit choppy, but damn is it good! I just love how the ribbons pop out of her brooch. I'm so glad to see they are back! I was afraid they would get rid of the stock footage for Crystal, and just do instant henshins.

Looking at it again, I can see what people are talking about. I hope the transformations for the other senshi's are better and for the love of all, can Saturn please get a transformation this time?

the clearer is better, but there are still moments of "ugggh CGI why?"

cases i saw of bad CGI:

Arm becomes swirly colors and swoops to the side 0:25-0:28

Rubbery weird doll look/Collar/Horrible bow 0:36-0:46, 0:49-0:51

Rubbery skirt 0:54-0:56

oddly enough...i LOVE the ribbon part. just really love it.

Yeaaah.. for me it's that weird rubbery and PS game look >_> I tried so hard to like it. I can't.

Also that final pose. Dead eyes and expressionless where I was expecting fierceness, or idk, something more lively.

I hope people won't leak anymore because I don't think I'll be able to resist watching it then.

Heehee~ I like the manga's Shitennou & am a supporter of SenshiXShitennou pairings!! <3

I'm so excited to see the Shitennou's cool style appearance in the opening theme!! AND feeling so relieved that Kun & Zoi don't have their hands all over each other (yet)~ LOL!! :p Hopefully it stays this way!! Wink

Sorry Beryl fans, but I really don't like her~ x_x

Don't worry, despite what is commonly said, KunZoi is still a thing in the manga continuity \o/ (And it's never outright stated, but is quite clear that Zoicite is comfortable with Kunzite touching him). So we should get a bit of that in crystal.

Hopefully we'll get their Golden Kingdom uniforms now~

I didn't get to see the rain scene because they've already pulled it off of Youtube but I saw the transformation and I have to say I did not like it one bit. Her hand looked so thin and stringy. It was so much CGI. Hopefully they'll tweak it for the series.

The only thing that bugs me about the transformation is the body proportions.  I know that in this style all the girls have very thin and elongated limbs, but I only really noticed when she transforms.

That being said, I have had Moon Pride stuck in my head for days and I am LOVING it!!

The henshin could have been better, I agree. At least, it's not Aikatsu-level bad.
