I think the first episode of Sailor Moon Crystal was probably exactly what it needed to be. Animation quality's really fantastic. The new transformation sequence is super cool, IMO. The music of everything so far still isn't grabbing me.
But hey, Tuxedo Mask has never looked more handsome.
Tuxedo Kamen/Tuxedo Mask "leaving jump" was held a little too long though as if to say "GAZE UPON ME!"
Another side thought: With the way the new art looks, Naru looks even more "adult" compared to Umino which makes him even more whimpy looking.
I kind of missed the "Next time on Sailor Moon" thing they had at the end of the episodes but that is from a bygone era. For today's shows they do the modern tease and close thing which is what we got with Ami running away in the rain.
I might be alone here, but I like the new OP more than the original one.
I'm actually okay with the new OP. If anything I wish they had gone more synth pop like a lot of modern shows do. :)
