I've seen a lot of people who say they hate SMC or hate the first two arcs but like the third. I feel like I'm part of the small fraction who liked all 3 of the arcs. Yeah, the third one did improve the adapting but I loved the music and seeing the girls animated in a more "elegant style" compared to the 90s anime. 

I also got to see stuff from the manga that was finally animated like Usagi and Mamoru's romance and V masquerading as the Princess.

Yes! I tend to like a new version of something because I like the characters or the series. Usually I have already been won over by a prior version (in this case, the manga). I actually approach DC remakes the same way and heavens knows some of those versions have issues, lol. 

So, yeah, in short, I like all of Sailor Moon Crystal, because it is Sailor Moon.

I like Crystal!! It's probably mostly because Crystal is what got me into Sailor Moon, but I also agree with Luna. I like it cause it's Sailor Moon.

I love all 3. I honestly mean it. I can't wait for 4! I adore Sailor Moon conceptually, so I've enjoyed all of the different ways its been expressed so far—including Crystal.

I haven't completed season 1 yet, but I will very likely enjoy all seasons..

I am not a picky anime fan and I love pretty much everything I watch. Like, any genre.

Crystal was good. Not great but good. Out of all 3 seasons so far I enjoyed the Black Moon and Death Busters arc best!

I really liked Crystal as a whole. There are a few dull episodes but I really do enjoy most of each season.

I do like all three seasons. Granted, they both have their strengths and their flaws, and they're not perfect series. I don't LOVE them as I do other anime, but I did enjoy all three seasons, even if I do think season three kind of jumped the shark a little by trying to do WAY too much at once.

I love SMC!! I am one of the many people who have a thing against the artwork sometimes, but they have drastically improved with every season, just like the 90s anime did. I am loving the fact that they are animating more of the manga story than just putting up random/filler episodes like the 90s anime did. And I love the fact that it is more mature and graphic as well, definitely geared more for the older teens/adults that grew up watching sailor moon that want more! I think I do love it more at times Anyone who Genuinely likes all 3 seasons of SMC? 1955989781

I LOVE SMC 

Yes, it's gotten some botched animation... but pretty much all anime has had it.
Thankfully the bluray release has cleaned it up. 

And the story itself is so fast paced, but the manga is the same....I mean, the arcs themselves aren't even that long. 

Overall I'm just thankful we've got more Sailor Moon Smile

I love SMC, but that's probably because I prefer the manga over the 90's anime, and I don't like filler, lol. The black moon arc is especially my favorite. I remember being on the edge of my seat waiting to see how the senshi would get out of the situation, so I was really happy to see it animated, bad animation or not lol.

I love SMC so much! The new art style felt a bit weird at first but I came to like them after a while and the change is actually refreshing. I actually had a crush on Mamoru when I saw his SMC version XD Also, I must say I especially love the season III style because the girls look more lively there. 

I think it's great that it sticks to the manga (there were some alteration but overall it's still 80%~90% close to the manga). Story wise, I personally feel that the first arc pacing was really fast, but then again that's how the manga is. I love how they include the major plot from the manga that was removed in the classic anime, such as Venus posing as the Princess, Chibiusa's romantic feelings for Mamoru, etc. I'm also really really grateful that they added the Shitennou and inner senshi scene even though (I'm such a big shipper).

I love Crystal so much, for being something super exciting to look forward to in my adult life. I got up early every saturday morning to watch them as they aired, live streaming. This was so much fun and the animation is really beautiful the botched animated bits hurt but having the manga animated was worth it! I really want them to get to stars so much so that everyone who has never read the manga can know how amazing it is and love it as much as me.

I love crystal so much!! I'll poke fun at the animation occasionally, and definitely think it has some weaknesses in relation to other versions (they all do), but there are other aspects which are done sooo much better (the familial relationship between Usagi, Mamoru, and Chibiusa is so well done, among other things), and I appreciate how the lack of fillers makes the series more manageable to watch and rewatch. I am super excited for the Dream arc and hope they continue into Stars!! I would LOVE an original storyline after that, or maybe something involving V, but I doubt it will happen.

There will never be a perfect version, but I think I'll enjoy seeing Sailor Moon re-done as many times as they re-do it!

I loved all three seasons. It's hard for me to find something Sailor Moon that I don't like. I understand where some of the criticisms come from, but I have enjoyed each new episode of Crystal, and I can't wait for the next season!

I love all three versions too and enjoy the art styles and music of both.  I'm sure I'll love season four too but I'm just excited to have more of my favorite characters to look forward to.

I agree with Neon Genesis! It's the nostalgia factor for me, I believe. I get to see Sailor Moon again, retold how it was intended by moving pictures instead of still ones. I still cry and can't believe it. XD
I love how it isn't exactly like the manga either. I see them all as different versions, but Crystal as a manga "Retelling"

I can't wait to see what season 4 and 5 bring! (So much that was never animated in these two arcs... much hype)

I genuinely love all three seasons of SMC but season three is by far my favorite. I was happy that seasons 1 and 2 looked more like the manga style, but the animation ended up so choppy and inconsistent despite it looking nice in promo pictures and stills. I think it was a little unrealistic to make an animation look so closely to the delicate style of Takeuchi's illustrations. Season three instead seemed to have a nice blend between the manga and 90s style which flowed much better. It also succeeded in adding the little things to emphasize the inner senshi's character traits which the first 2 seasons didn't achieve very well. I compared each episode side by side with the manga and found that while seasons 1 and 2 left out many of the inner senshi's lines, season 3 actually gave them extra lines! 

One of the main reasons I love Sailor Moon Crystal is because it brought some of my favorite manga scenes to life such as the Pluto/Black Lady scene and Sailor Saturn's awakening. The fast pacing and lack of filler is more my preference for an anime. Even though the characters aside from Usagi and Mamoru don't get as much attention, I still appreciate the way they were portrayed. Chibiusa is a sweetheart, Rei is more mature, Minako is more capable, and Haruka & Michiru aren't cruel to Sailor Moon. Also, Usagi isn't as boy crazy or ditzy (only enough to make her seem funny and cute) and Mamoru is more involved with the inner senshi and much more affectionate to Usagi.

I didn't really dislike Crystal. As another series of Sailor Moon, it is welcome. There certainly were problems in the animation, but Crystal is an adaptation that, as intended, follows the source version, in the manga, very well.
The differences between the first series and the manga are also relevant when discussing Crystal, but that is more of a seperate subject to consider in another thread.
