Now that the world has had a chance to watch Sailor Moon Crystal this weekend, everyone seems to have something to say about the new reboot. Some stuff is positive, which is unsurprising, given how beloved the franchise is. And some stuff definitely has a tinge of disappointment to it.
Regardless of how you feel about the reboot, one thing is clear: lots of people are watching. That's just how influential the franchise is. I found myself watching even though I wasn't that huge on Sailor Moon growing up.
Here's what the internet had to say about Sailor Moon Crystal.
The part on the new Sailor Moon Crystal where Usagi and Tuxedo Mask match on Tinder and he's like "sup" and she's like "I'm actually 14"

I don't really like some of the changes they've made to the new Sailor Moon. http://t.co/3rDPpRNOHn

We were so preoccupied with whether or not we could remake Sailor Moon, we never stopped to consider if we should.

Targeted ads: Watch Sailor Moon Crystal on hulu, get an ad for Kay Jewelers, the episode is about sapping teen energy with cursed jewelry
