For what it's worth, that does look pretty good.
That Picture does look quite nice. But if I may be so bold as to point out, it may just be a promo picture and we may not have a scene in the Anime where the girls typically relax and hang out. When the Ah My Goddess TV anime was airing there were a whole bunch of preview pics in magazines with settings that never took place in the actual show. Same with the Rosario + Vampire Anime (for both seasons).

They can't skip the "we are still trying and struggling to be normal girls" aspect. What are you expecting them to do for 26 episodes? It's going to cover the Dark Kingdom Arc, without such scenes there will be no friendship, connection between them, and no depth to the characters. In the manga there are not a lot of scenes of their normal life (but they are not entirely missing), because Naoko Takeuchi didn't have time. They pressed her moving the main plot, because the anime starts a month after the manga and on a weekly basis, while the manga was serialized monthly. This is part of the problem why the old series is so different from the manga and why there is not enough character development in the manga. Yes, this is a poster, but there will be many such scenes - in the old anime, the life action and the manga there were such moments, although the manga was rushed due to the fact that the animation stuff needed an overall plot.

I always thought that the 26 episodes would cover the first 2 arcs of the manga, but I guess they could also just stick with the first arc and put in some filler episodes that help develop the sailor soldier's personalities.

Something I have been wondering ever since the new Sailor Moon was announced. I wonder if they'll be also redoing the Movies? Well, at the least the Snow Queen story (which the S Movie was based off of), if they'll save that for a "Made-for-TV special" of some kind or if they'll make it into a theatrical release? I'm guessing that it'll be more of a special than an actual animated movie with a theatrical release (like the original Sailor Moon movies).

Wasn't the orignial version of the first arc something like 49 episodes long? Admittedly with a lot of filler bits (monster of the week plus engery collection/crystal searching) that covered each of the Generals while slowly introducing the girls.

It only takes a few small changes to make Usagi look human instead of an alien.
Per chance, you haven't found such pics of the other senshi? It'd be interesting to see all of them tweeked like this.

They are adapting the manga now and the only movie that is based on the manga is Sailor Moon S The Movie. As you mentioned. It's based on an extra chapter called "The Lover of Princess Kaguya". If it performs well, they could make the other seasons and even movies - it depends. As far as I know they are adapting the Dark Kingdom Arc in these 26 episodes, and it's better that way. I love the manga, but it so rushed, it would be strange for it to have the same pacing.

And about the poster:



A japanese acquaintance of my told that in the magazine, that published it there is some explanations. The strange pose of Usagi here is well intended, as she is actually trying to steal Rei's cake ( Usagi's plate is already empty), while the former is taken away by the conversation. Ami sees it and is shocked by the mischievous ways of Usagi. I am sure they are in the Fruits Parlor Crown, so it's not a random setting. So cute.

And I guess Minako and Makoto noticed while the former tells the latter with a wink.

Yup, sounds like the Usagi we all know and love alright!

Actually I don't like him much, I was hyped when I saw him but when I look at him now... He looks more like doctor Tomoe. Of course, it's just a sketch. By the way the first episode's title is the same as the first chapter in the manga "Usagi - Sailor Moon".



There is even a short and very strange synopsis, something like "As an ally of justice Sailor V is trying to solve a robbery at the grand opening of jewelry shop, while Usagi decides to visit Naru-chan's on they way back home ..." It makes me thing that the first episode will start with a scene of Sailor V catching the robberies (hope it's cool action scene) - the event, described in the newspaper Mama Ikuko is reading in the first chapter of the manga. I think it would be a nice start seeing Sailor V as she started it all ( and because she is the best, obviously) Please if I got lost in translation and someone is got at Japanese - correct me. Still a newbie with my Japanese studies

Mamoru looks alright, but he doesn't resemble Mamoru at all. Maybe it's because it's a small sketch.

Oh god.

I hadn't realised just how bad the character designs were until I saw that tweaked picture. Oh god.

It's like Cthulhu with Usagi's head attached.

Mamoru actually wears glasses in the manga sometimes, while he is reading and at school. He is a bookish type of guy and he wants to be a doctor, just like Ami. Actually Ami wears glasses too from time to time. In the life action Ami intially wears glasses, but not because she needs them, but as a shield towards the world. She is shy, she feels she doesn't belong, till she befriends Usagi and the others. Later on she is still insecure, she is affraid she will lose her friends and she is very sensitive. When she becomes more aware of herself and gathers confidence she stops wearing them, it's a nice touch. Hope we can see Ami in similar way in this new anime, could make her even more interesting character.

Well in fairness, shouldn't the 30-second teaser demonstrate the show at its best? As in, wouldn't it make sense for the footage shown in that teaser to be some of the higher quality content in the show? So if people don't like how the preview looks, that could very well be a bad sign.
