At Otakon, we did a Moon Pride Opening group, complete with custom-painted umbrellas. I’m sad we didn’t get to wear it all together for very long at all during the con (schedules, hotel check out, Sunday is a godawful day!) but it was awesome.

I guess I’m the only person that is pretty disappointed with each new episode of Sailor Moon Crystal.  .  

I never understood people who want faithful manga adaptations, down to the individual panel (or people who want films to be identical to the novels they are based on).  They are different mediums and require different storytelling decisions, after all.   So while other fans might be happy at how “accurate” the show is, it just feels really uninspired to me   

The first episode was beautiful so I’m still holding out hope that Masquerade will bring that level of quality back.  And the most exciting thing in the last 2 episodes was seeing contemporary Azabu Juban animated haha.

Reminds me of…

(Yay when 2 of my fandoms collide.  The Usagi-esque one on the right is Iikubo Haruna of Morning Musume with her buddy Wada Ayaka of S/mileage.)

I’m trying to wrap my head around Makoto’s apartment. How does this look? Close?

We see Makoto’s apartment twice; once briefly in R and again more closely at the start of the SuperS movie. Between the two there are some differences, but enough similarities to make me think it’s meant to be the same place. But we have to assume that one of the representations is “wrong”. Given how much more effort was put into her room for the SuperS movie, I figure it should take precedence, and the glimpse we see of her room in R should just serve as inspiration.

Makoto’s place is 206, and given the abundance of windows I’m guessing it’s one of the corner apartments, which allows for the L-shape. The windows are what allow us to place most everything. The big window in the kitchen scene matches the window(s) to the far right in the exterior building shot.

The door behind Ami doesn’t match the front door and the louvers make it look like a bathroom or bedroom door, but realistically speaking, Makoto probably only has a one-room apartment, so it’s probably a bathroom. Because we can see the exterior hallway, we know that the apartments are flush with exterior wall, so the bathroom probably sticks out like in the illustration.

The large windows that look out onto the balcony are probably not sliding doors (the panels are too narrow) so they are probably two large windows and a single door. If we take some liberties with the glimpse we see of Makoto’s room in R, then it’s possible that her bed is against that corner. The purple sofa chair we see in the pan shot may be the same sofa in the concept sketch (or at least in the same place). So the pan shot kind of… swings in an L-shaped arc around to the kitchen area. Finally, she would have some kind of divider or curtain to separate her bed from the rest of her apartment.

I’m sticking with this because trying to think of anything else makes my head hurt.

@windchimesandsmoke said: but if she can see the island and sink from her bed it wouldn’t be around a corner would it?

That’s why I’m saying we have to accept that one of these is wrong, and I’m guessing it’s the episode from R. There isn’t any other way to make the R placement work with the established layout of her kitchen. But we can take it as inspiration; the pan shot is kind of an abstract representation of Minako’s chaos.

lulu-on-the-moon:

some quick thoughts on the latest episode:

  • is it me or was the animation REALLY sloppy? like REALLY REALLY sloppy?
  • the frame by frame manga lift is great in some areas and not so great in others. i think PGSM wins with Act 2 because the focus was solely on usagi and ami. they save each other…

It was like they had a completely different character designer for episode 2!
