This does remind me when we'll get an update on the series. I don't think we've heard anything since it was announced.

Spoiler for manga and anime end:


The manga might be darker, but it has a lot more of those inappropriate messages for young girls. Even the live discarded those ideas and made Usagi much more sympathetic, they probably figured by that point that doing that scene would kill the character and the story of the present.
Which is funny, cause I am hoping for something more like the live action version of their relationship. It is the only version of Usagi/Mamoru that I like.

Oh, I think the live action had the best development between Usagi and Mamoru, even if I could have lived without the Special Act. While I didn't think the relationship was a 100% ok, specialy by the end of the show, it was still miles better than the manga and the anime, so I'm all for that. I just never, ever want to hear the 'Baka!' 'Bakatte nani yo!' exchange ever again. Maybe it was Miyu's voice, but by the time I got to the Special Act, I felt like throwing something at her, and I have no problem with the character otherwise.

I actually liked their relationship in the Manga the best. It felt like it developed at a good, normal pace while the Anime, it felt too forced. It may have seemed extreme when Usagi killed herself in the present with the sword, but I can easily imagine some couples going through that kind of grief when they loose a loved one (or they think they loose a loved one).

God knows when we'll get an update, though I'm starting to loose my patience. We're in the middle of January and so far no trailer, no screenshots, no concept art, not even *any* bit of new info!

(well since it looks like I'm sticking around a bit longer than I thought, I really should get an Avatar and Signature for my Forum account here)

I expect a lot from Sailormoon since its the very first anime I fell in loved with. I think its the best Mahou series out there..... Sailormoon is a legend for me...

Yeah....I like how she starting falling for him in the manga BEFORE she knew his identity. You didn't get that so much in the manga.

*nod*
Most people see this as weak but the person normally just isn't in their right mind during the first stage of grief...which could lead to extreme reactions like that.
It also seems that with elderly couples, if one dies, the other soon follows. They just sort of.......give up.

In the manga Usagi's case: If you recall correctly SHE had to kill HIM with the sword because Beryl turned him evil. So Usagi couldn't live with that. Which is a little different than "I must die because he died and my life is meaningless." It's more of "I just murdered the person I love and now I can't stand the thought of living on, knowing that."

Spoiler for for the live action:


I respect your views and don't mind that you favor the manga for your own reasons. I personally like some parts of all the different retellings. I like the role of Venus in the DK arc in the manga, I prefer some bits of the live action, most notably the romance, though I'm not really a fan of the series itself and felt that the ending was rushed with some parts not making any sense. I like the ending of the first season of the anime best, and overall, I prefer the other 4 arcs in the manga to the anime.

I am actually more curious about how they will handle the other scouts rather than just Usagi.

Can't wait for it, thinking about watching the original Sailor Moon again, see if it holds up.
I remember it having a really kick ass transformation theme in the first season.

It doesn't hold up. At all. Too many fillers, and inconsistent characterization, IMO. After S it goes downhill even more.

Even if you put the moral issue aside, there is still the matter of character development. Usagi in the manga, instead of getting stronger to protect her friends and the world, basically just gives up. They still won because she got lucky but...

The anime, on the other hand, clearly shows her character growth in the last episode (of the first season). At the end she is a strong-willed girl ready to fight insurmountable odds even though at that point she has lost almost everything she holds dear.

At least she gets stronger in the Manga, as a character. By the time the Sailor Moon R Anime starts she becomes the same bumbling (and weak) character from the beginning of the first season. And this is how it is in the Anime, each season it looks like she gets stronger but then she returns to the same weak and bumbling character in the beginning of the series. In fact, she couldn't even take out a monster herself and Luna had to re-awaken the rest of the Sailor Soldiers. Many enemies in the Manga Sailor Moon took out herself but in the Anime, she almost always needed help from the other Sailor Soldiers. Hell, she would often get bitchslapped (err....no offense to the women here meant) when she faced an opponent herself! Compared to her Manga counterpart, that's pretty pitiful.

Some would argue that Usagi showed a weakness in character when she drove that sword through her chest. Some would even condemn her as a coward. I personally think she shouldn't have left her friends like that. But I also have to understand that she was stricken with alot of grief, and that is what makes her human. I mean, she's a 14 year old girl who got shoved in this battle against evil when she wasn't completely mentally prepared. And having to *kill* the man she loved (especially when she had alot of regrets arguing with him and not getting to know him), that did drive her over the edge with grief. Already loosing a loved one can drive some adults with enough grief that they kill themselves on the spot. So I can easily see why she was overcome with enough grief to kill herself on the spot, even though I didn't agree with her actions.

Ah, yes, that. You and me both. If they even get that far this time, it's gonna be a little awkward.

Speaking of which, I wonder if they'll up the technology, they did with the live and Takeuchi even modified parts of the manga.
