Please stop insulting the animators for sailor moon crystal. They don’t deserve it. They are probably stressed, over tired, and working non stop to produce episodes every two weeks, maybe even working on the project…

I love how the OP felt the need to say the animators take time out of their day to work on Crystal. Umm, probably because that’s their job??? This is a professional company with (presumably) professional animators, they can’t just say “oh I don’t feel like working on that anime today. I’ll do it tomorrow”, at least not if they don’t want to get fired anyway.

Also I am dying over the fact that Crystal apologists are sinking so low as to impersonate a Toei animator. Like, are you really that butt devastated about people pointing out the glaringly obvious faults of this anime that you need to go THAT far to try and stop it? What the hell is wrong with you? I’m almost starting to think that the vocal Crystal apologists have a few screws loose and that’s why they’re so adamantly screaming ” STOP HATING WHAT I LIKE”.

THIS. Exactly. Toei Animation creates anime like One Piece episodes every single week. And half the time they do a great job capturing the pure essence of the manga and transferring it to the anime. They are professionals and artists.

However,  Sailor Moon Crystal obviously hasn’t gotten this much attention and the anime has become something of a joke. I was excited to hear that they were going to make a sailor moon reboot based more on the manga, and thought it would be deeper and darker than the first anime, while expanding on the holes and blanks left in between the pages.

Being a Sailor Moon fan since the manga mass produced in America, and a watching almost every episode of the original anime (Yes, even StarS), I was literally PUMPED to get the new anime Sailor Moon Crystal.

But then the art for it came out, and I was like, “It’s okay, looks like the original! It will be fine!”

Then the trailer came out. “It’s okay! It’s just a tiny scene! Maybe the rest of it will be super animated! Or this is just the trailer!”

"It’s okay! Heheh! Sure the animation is not cohesive. Sure the 3D animation looks better than the 2D! Sure she does more damsel-in-distressing and Tuxedo Mask staring than in the 90s. Sure they are still missing some plot points. Sure, they are missing the attacks and….."

Nope. That was it. I broke. After YEARS of waiting for this to come out.
After YEARS of seeing all the merchandise release and buying into the hype. After YEARS of wondering what the anime would look like, dreaming of something better than the 90s anime and giddily reading the manga again….

Sure they brought back the original plot of the manga.
Sure the characters act more like the original.
But the animation is just so horrid!!! Gosh, it’s like watching my old SM fanart sketches come back to life to haunt me! It’s a nightmare!

And then the episodes. Gosh. 
The manga had the excuse of jumping from one scene to another because manga is up for interpretation. It leave it up to the imagination.
But the anime can’t just DO this. It has to make it up with filler and the 90s anime did a FANTASTIC job on filling in the blanks with most of the scenes.
But Crystal doesn’t want to do this. And because of that, it looks choppy, or slapped on. It looks like they didn’t even try and I know it’s not there fault.

They wanted Naoko Takeuchi to be in on it, but she is not an animator. She is a manga artist. BELIEVE ME. There is a BIG difference. If you don’t, try reading Hayao Miyazaki’s Nausicaa manga series. He wrote that whole manga series to show what the movie would look like. He drew it as a manga, but he saw it as an animator and there is ALOT of information in those pages.

While I think it was good to invite the original artist to help with rebooting Sailor Moon, I hoped they didn’t let her direct too much of it. That’s where professionals need to step in.

Anyways. This is me ranting because I hate when Sailor Moon fans start turning on each other because they think that everyone should be eternally-salior-moon-grateful that we are even getting a reboot in the first place!

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and no one should have to feel like they are ungrateful bigots just because they don’t agree with the rest of the fandom. We shouldn’t have to feel that were not Sailor Moon fans for not accepting Crystal nor feel as if the new anime is superior to the old.

This goes vice-versa too. Whether you are a Crystal fan or a SM92 fan. We are all entitled to love Sailor Moon from wherever we fell it love with it.

As for me, I hope that Crystal will get better as the episodes go on, but I won’t be watching it until someone informs me that the animators have made a serious effort. I don’t like to watch animation unless the animators are treating it as art, not just as some low-budget ride they decided to get on until they are done with it.

Until that day comes out, I hope that their will be peace within the Sailor Moon tag and all tags related. Let everyone have their own opinions, and I hope everyone will watch/read the versions that they prefer.

Never not reblog

One thing that always bothered me about that picture of mulan, more than the obvious artifice which is pretty out of character, is the colour of her outfit. The general consensus seems to be that mulan took place in the Northern Wei dynasty, but during the Tang Dynasty which preceded it, the colour yellow, especially bright yellow, had become the exclusive domain of the Emperor. And in those times disrespect to the Emperor could cost you your head at best and the lives of you and your entire family at worst. So, y know, maybe don’t put her in yellow clothes.

I love the history side if tumblr






As someone who wants to study the human consciousness I found this very interesting.

Scott Routley was a “vegetable”. A car accident seriously injured both sides of his brain, and for 12 years, he was completely unresponsive.

Unable to speak or track people with his eyes, it seemed that Routley was unaware of his surroundings, and doctors assumed he was lost in limbo. They were wrong.

In 2012, Professor Adrian Owen decided to run tests on comatose patients like Scott Routley. Curious if some “vegetables” were actually conscious, Owen put Routley in an fMRI and told him to imagine walking through his home. Suddenly, the brain scan showed activity. Routley not only heard Owen, he was responding.

Next, the two worked out a code. Owen asked a series of “yes or no” questions, and if the answer was “yes,” Routley thought about walking around his house. If the answer was “no,” Routley thought about playing tennis.

These different actions showed activity different parts of the brain. Owen started off with easy questions like, “Is the sky blue?” However, they changed medical science when Owen asked, “Are you in pain?” and Routley answered, “No.” It was the first time a comatose patient with serious brain damage had let doctors know about his condition.

While Scott Routley is still trapped in his body, he finally has a way to reach out to the people around him. This finding has huge implications.




What a fucking nightmare, just kill me.

I know a girl who was hit by a drunk driver and in that state for a year. When she woke up the first thing she did was tell off the doctor who tried to convince her mom to pull the plug. She heard *everything* while being called brain dead.
