My thoughts on Sailor Moon Crystal and why you shouldn’t slam the ban hammer on it just yet if it left you a bad taste!

Personally I am in love with what I have seen so far for many reasons.

1. The art style is unique and very old school anime inspired (think Utena, Magic Knight Ray Earth, those still cells in particular SCREAM Utena inspired) mixed with Naoko Takeuchi’s style. The color pallet is modern and bright and just perfect! And let’s face it, Naoko Takeuchi’s art was never perfect, but very pretty!!

For those of you who are newer to anime I am sure the art was more of a shock. It should grow on you and you may learn to appreciate the unique artistic liberties they took on the human body. I don’t think the focus was meant to take away from her curves, it was meant to pay respects to the original art and be unique for today’s typical style.

2. The music. Yes, I have to admit in comparison so far, the old music has my heart won over wayyyy more. But you know what, avoiding the comparisons, because I don’t feel the shows should really be compared in order to form your judgment; I really enjoy Moon Pride, its lyrics and that bad ass guitar. The ending song is also very pretty!

3. Character design. From what I have seen so far, the character designs are lovely. You can see the heavy manga influence and everyone seems very true to their original creation. The  modern colors on the 4 generals in particular is AWESOME!!! 

The modern wardrobe on Mamoru and spiffy new tux, legit fangirl moments happened when I saw him. LOVE.

4. Voice actors. What little I have experienced so far seems great! Can’t really form a full opinion yet here. 

5. That transformation scene. Well I’m old school and I can say I did not care for it. It’s pretty but I felt it seemed cheap and took away from the flow of the show. I do however, see potential in it and am interested in seeing where they go with it. 3D is really becoming the new thing and I’ll have to learn to appreciate it more.

6. Moon Tiara Boomerang! Loved that bit! Short, sweet and pretty! Also not 3D, thank god.

7. Over all opinion of the show and quality. Can’t say much here. I’ve only seen 22 minutes of a pilot episode. I can say for me personally, the good far outweighed the bad at this point. There are certainly some animation quality moments I didn’t appreciate but it has not tainted the show as a whole. They will likely get into the grove more and more as the show airs. I am very excited but I can’t stress how unfair it would be for me to form my entire opinion of the show based on one pilot episode. We have to also keep in mind this likely a lower budget show, released as a web series. I think most people were expecting top notch budget and quality.  

I also feel it is very unfair to compare Crystal to the original anime. They shouldn’t really be compared at all as they are each their own thing, not to mention at this point you are comparing your opinion on 22 minutes of one show versus 200 episodes of another. Slight disadvantage there.

If you want to base your decision on crystal by comparison and not judge it as its own thing; at least give the show an entire season before you bring down the ban hammer because one is better than the other. Also, please keep in mind it is entirely possible to like one more and not completely hate the other.

Sailor Moon says! 
Keep watching guys! I bet you’ll grow to love or at least enjoy this new adaption! It has lots to offer!

someone at my school has lots of time on their hands!!!
it says

“Here’s some food for thought:
you are not beautiful just because you are ‘thin’ or ‘thick’ or ‘perfect’  by society’s standards.
You are beautiful when you *respect* other people’s bodies and begin to love your own! 
So lets all start to love one another and make this world a little brighter!”


i am so in love with this

I love this so much wow

Heartbreaking Simpsons Moments 1/∞: Bart Gets an F

I never understood why it’s an F if he gets more than half out of 100? Unless it’s more than 100. If you get more than half the answers right how is it an F?

You must not be from America. Here, grading is fucked up.

Average American Grading Scale:
A+- 97-100
A - 94-96
A- - 90-93
B- 80-89
C- 70-79
D- 60-69
F- 59 and under

oh wow that is fucked up

why do they skip E in america

There’s an E in other grading scales?

And in some places in America it goes by a 7 point scale, so it’d be
A - 100-93
B - 92-85
C - 84-78
D - 77-70
F - 69 and below

Now you understand why American kid’s feel like there’s no point to school. If you have a 100 question text, and get 79 of them correct, that’s a C. That mean’s your Average Intelligence on this particular subject. And it get’s even worse when you have only like… a 10 question quiz. If you get two wrong? that’s a B. 80 fucking %. Now tell me again why American school’s are easier? 

No wait but whats the grading system in other countries?

UK Grading Scale

100-70: A

69-60: B

59-50: C

49-40: D

Below 40: F

ARE YOU FUCKING WITH ME?! THATS INSANE!!!!

next time you try to tell americans that we’re stupid

i’m gonna remind you

that our “average” is your “A”

Saving THIS for future reference.

Yep I was shocked when I heard this in a different post but a Google search pulls up a ton of sites backing this up.
Shit son I woulda passed College Algebra with an A in the UK. And I spent the end of the semester in perpetual fear that I would fail and have to retake the class.

oh man, in my public texas school it was

A: 100-90

B: 89-80

C: 79-75

D: 74-70

F: 69-0

i think that was the same in college? i can’t remember
