"What she wanted" turned out to be the live action series...So I hope she stays as far as possible from this.

Ah, I was going by the 'Malachite' name, my bad... but yes, I'm sure that they are going to create a stir.

As for what she wanted, the live-action seemed so mundane though... but then again, most live-actions based off of anime seem very lack-luster in comparison. It just feels like one big cosplay production...

At least it looks like a decent cosplay production. The wigs used on Sera Myu were horrible, despite the musicals being awesome.

I thought the wigs in the live were just as bad, especially the blondes.
The live action had a couple of strong points but it ended up an utter mess with a lot of plot points never getting resolved. I've rewatched it a few months ago and, I kid you not, I do not remember what happened in the last episode at all.
I think Takeuchi and Toei tried to improve on the manga and this is what we got. I hope they do a better job with this series if it ever gets done.

Finished Starz last night.

MAN, I FEEL FOR SEIYA-KUN. SeiyaxUsagi is actually VERY popular on both pixv AND Deviant Art...and you can definitely see why. He is a lot more "fun" than Mamoru. But more than "fun", he also comes across as very sincere as well.
That infamous "Am I not good enough?" scene in the rain kills me more now than ever! It's absolutely heart-breaking!
I TOTALLY SHIP THEM.

....Genji-chan is probably going to rage at me.

But I only feel that way with the anime version.

So........STILL NO SCREENSHOTS OR NEWS!?

*dies*

....I guess the next thing to do is to rewatch all the movies...if I can even FIND them in high quality now....

I also hope this reboot is not close to the live action series since I think the live action was downright terrible.

Seiya is a shemale!!!

She's popular because attracts both men and women!

Mamoru only got women, REAL WOMEN, FAITHFUL WOMEN!!!

Eat dirt Seiya! Too bad, Usagi ain't a bitch nor an adulteress.... You can have her kiss or her body... But her heart and soul are for Mamoru.... She's a model for all faithful waifus!, Mamoru's Penelope!!!! Their love is astronomical!!!! They've gone so many challenges, and no shemale will match it nor out match it!!!!

Enough shipping wars for both of you, you could take this elsewhere since I usually don't like this kind of annoying debate.

Concerning the new anime, I'm also looking forward to watch this remake due to my little experience with Sailor Moon and as far the artwork goes, I don't know if it gets improved a lot but I prefer the girls' eyes be a little smaller to fit today's standards.

Duh? I'm not shipping, LOLS Mamoru x Usagi are official.

It's the Seiya fans that should accept the reality ad give up the shipping.

Chiibi and I are concern whether the pairing will be broken to fit the standard of different factions.

Keeping the pairing official will prevent other suitors to enter the romance of Mamoru and Usagi which I will hate it that happens. I just hope they'll still keep the pairing maintained and no third party will attempt to break it again like Seiya.

Wait, Seiya has fanboys? Okay, she is kind of hot in the manga, but still.
You guys are cute.

I'm kind of glad I'm perfectly fine with both pairings.

That's true, but every opinion regarding the shippings is subjective (official or not) according to my view, I don't care about shipping wars as long I root for pairings from series I like, but yeah it may leads to sickly arguments and such. I haven't watched the series much, but I do think it's up to the viewer deciding to care about one pairing or another, no matter how much they accept the reality.

I can't remember watching the last old-school remake anime I watched in entirety, but the Space Battleship Yamato's new anime artwork really appeals to me since I like modern art.

...I honestly think that they were just jokingly hyping up the 'shipping war' stereotype.

I mean, we don't have shipping wars about this still do we?

.... Right?

... RIGHT!?!?

Only thing I'm happy for is Tuxedo mask's VA not yet confirmed for the role. I'm of the opinion that if they're remaking the entire series, they should remake EVERYTHING, including the VAs. And it's not as if we're hurting from good VAs at this moment either, so with proper casting I'd say they'll be as good or even better than the original cast.

But the rest... meh, we kinda knew that already from this thread.

My... I never cared for Mamoru, he was lame, cheesy and obnoxious in the anime and boring in the manga, shipping him off in the last arc was possibly one of the best decisions ever made x__x
Worst male love interest ever, even by magical girl standards.
That said, it was obvious that Seiya didn't stand a chance, which kind of ruined the actually fun and entertaining interactions between him and Usagi. Now that I think about it, if Seiya had been the love interest throughout, I might have actually cared for the romance plots in Sailor Moon. As it was, I just remember trying my hardest to ignore that part xD
No offence, Mamoru fans... just my opinion.

Ehm that said... curse it, I was so hyped for this show airing soon... nooo! Why this!? (insert madoka and suffering reference here)

I'll wait until we have something a bit more concrete to work with.

Would suck if it didn't come out in the summer and the wait continued on. Curious to see how this will turn out.
