In honor of Sailor Moon Crystal and the announcement of the new dub cast for the 90s anime, I asked Betsy to do Usagi’s cat mentor, Luna, in her own style. I also asked her to think of Luna as a big sister to Usagi and ignore the fact that the 90s dub gave her the voice of a British nanny.

HEY GUYS, YOU KNOW THAT THING I CONTRIBUTED TO ON FEBRUARY? WELL IT’S DONE AND IT’S ONLINE. 
My shot is at 17:15.

But I’d like to know who did Mars’ intro at 17:44.

Because that shit’s bananas! 

I want to know who did Luna and Artemis at 9:00. The style seems familiar.

In this episode we explore the Women as Background Decoration trope which is the subset of largely insignificant non-playable female characters whose sexuality or victimhood is exploited as a way to infuse edgy, gritty or racy flavoring into game worlds. These sexually objectified female bodies are designed to function as environmental texture while titillating presumed straight male players. Sometimes they’re created to be glorified furniture but they are frequently programmed as minimally interactive sex objects to be used and abused.

I know she is controversial but she has a point. Can we see prostitutes that are actual characters and not an excuse to get sex as an achievement? -_-

Could you wait for Big Hero 6 to come out first before you call it “formulaic”? Then you can use it for your rant.

Miyazaki Fujiko is the best Fujiko. :D

I love how the left side says that it is a “cute CGI character”. That means this isn’t a 2D Purist whining about computer animation, but rather it is saying that films like “The Smurfs” make the mistake of giving realistic textures to otherwise cartoony characters. This makes them look creepy and unappealing.
I can agree with this comparison 100%. I have seen the Owly CGI shorts at comic conventions and those work because the textures are as simple as the cute character designs. Also, say what you will about how Disney designs CGI humans, but at least they don’t feel the need to give them skin pores. I guess my point in all this is that CGI can be just as appealing as hand drawn animation. It’s all in how go about executing it that can cause problems.

I love how Yoshiyuki Sadamoto, the character designer for Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water and Neon Genesis Evangelion, admits here that Shinji is basically Nadia with a haircut. LOL
