I’m really happy someone put together these comparisons - for me, it really drives home the fact that the eyes & faces of SM: Crystal are seriously lacking something - call it expression, soul, originality - it’s not there, and it’s absence is obvious.
For me, especially as an
artist very visual person, the eyes are everything.
The new anime is better in a lot of things, the fidelity to the original dressing details, the jewelry, the shading, the scene composition (more simmilar to the manga, than the old anime), the effects, I even like the 3D parts!
But the expressivity… oh boy, that’s gone. And for those who keep telling me that it has the same expresivity as the manga, and that I am such a terrible fan for not knowing that… Well, this is for you. :D
And I don’t mean to start a war, it is okay if you like it, and it is okay if you don’t. Everyone has the right to show their opinion without the “YOU ARE NOT A TRUE SM FAN IF YOU COMPLAIN” thing.
Doesn’t she also have like two right hands on image 5? How is this possible in Anime
I liked the new show, but you can’t deny this right here. So unfortunate.
